i sang in front of people today

tallperson  asked:

I have no idea how the heck Auli’i sang that song in front of millions of people and she's only sixteen?? I'm sixteen and I gave up on making boxed mac and cheese today because I didn't want to put in the effort.

She’s so talented and pure. I’d betray all of you to protect her.

While driving home I thought about this:

Lena and Kara had just exchanged vows and were now officially wed. As they arrived into the reception hall, Lena led Kara to a chair that was placed in the middle of the dance floor. She leaned closer to her wife to let her know that she had a surprise in store. Traditionally, Kara had always been the one to sing but today was different. Winn had walked over to both women to escort Lena up to the stage. They had been practicing for weeks now to perfect the song she had chosen. While Winn quickly tuned his guitar, Lena moved closer to the microphone. She had never sang in front of so many people, her heart was pounding in her chest. She cleared her throat before speaking, “This is for you..I love you…” Her eyes glanced around the room until she reached her wife’s gorgeous blue eyes, filling her with all the courage she would need to sing. The sounds of Winn’s guitar began to fill the room as Lena took a breath before singing.. “You look so wonderful in your dress, I love your hair like that. The way it falls on the side of your neck, down your shoulders and back…….. And should this be the last thing I see, I want you to know it’s enough for me, ‘cause all that you are is all that I’ll ever need……. The way it brings out the blue in your eyes, is the Tenerife sea…. You look so wonderful in your dress, I loved your hair like that. And in the moment I knew you.” (x)

Ya boi sang on stage today in front of like 300 people (including my parents) for Rockquest and it went really well!!!

Our band may have not got through to the finals, but hey: We had a really good time (we rocked hard) and Dad said he was proud of me and gave me $40 and Fish ‘n’ Chips for dinner 

AND WE ALSO WATCHED MOANA AND I MAY OR NOT HAVE BEEN CRYING

GOD DAMB MAORI HERITAGE AND MYTHOLOGY IS AMAZING

50+ Followers & Karasuno Mistletoe Special!

AN: Happy Holidays, everyone! As a thank you for 50+ followers, I wanted to write Christmas scenarios of you under the mistletoe with our favorite Karasuno boys. They, uh, turned out to be quite long…. Daichi will be shown first and the rest of the boys will be under the cut. I hope you all enjoy!


DAICHI: School had been out for winter break for about a week now, and that meant that volleyball practice had been on hiatus due to the holiday season. It was quite relaxing for everyone, really, but the team had missed each other so much that Coach Ukai agreed to hold a small holiday get-together before everyone left on vacation (thanks to Takeda-sensei’s begging).

As one of the older managers, you helped Kiyoko and Hitoka decorate Coach Ukai’s home with tinsel, candy canes, and per Hitoka’s request, mistletoe.

“_____-chan, you know it won’t be Christmas without mistletoe!” Hitoka beamed, shoving the plastic plant to your chest.

You pouted. “What if you and Yamaguchi fell under the mistletoe!? Will you really kiss him?”

“_-____-chan!! You don’t have to actually kiss under the mistletoe!! T-that’s just tradition!!” her cheeks burned a bright red.

Knowing the boys, you knew that if you, Kiyoko, or Hitoka fell under the mistletoe with them, they would probably attempt to kiss either of you, without any hesitation at all. But you only wanted to kiss one person, and one person only.

The whole team had finally arrived around dinner time. Sugawara was the only one dressed appropriately with an ugly sweater. But your attention was focused on Daichi the entire night. He looked so good in green….

Your relationship with Daichi would not have existed without the volleyball team. You didn’t meet him until you and Kiyoko joined as managers, and you were so thankful for that. You fell for Daichi almost as soon as you met him. He was friendly, reliable, smart, and so much more. He was simply amazing.

You were chatting with Sugawara about his sweater when Daichi approached you two.

“Thank you for planning all of this, _____-san,” he smiled. Boy, did you love that smile.

“It wasn’t all me,” you messed with the hem of your sweater. “Kiyoko and Hitoka-chan helped, too.” You noticed that the his mug that was once filled with hot chocolate was empty. “Do you want more hot chocolate?”

Daichi gave you his signature smile that made your cheeks flush. “I’d like that.”

You grabbed his mug and he followed you into the kitchen.

“_____-san,” he said. You turned to look at him with curious eyes. God, you were so cute. “Can you do me a favor?”

“Of course. What do you need?”

“Can you look up?”

Confused, you looked up and your eyes widened. You saw one of the mistletoe hanging from the ceiling. Had you hung that there earlier…?

“M-mistletoe,” you stuttered.

“You know what people do under the mistletoe, right?” Daichi teased.

“Of course I do!”

“Then can I kiss you?”

You felt your face burn as hot as the stove. Had Sawamura Daichi really asked you to kiss him under the mistletoe? How could you decline?

Instead of answering verbally, you leaned into him slowly. He cupped your face with his hands and kissed you. His lips were so soft and boy, did he know how to kiss. You could feel every emotion he felt fo you. You felt like you were melting into him.

Christmas was your new favorite holiday.

Today was incredibly special. I made my runes in the shop today, practicing galdr in front of people for the first time. The high priestess of the store brought her daughter in to see me make them, and together the three of us sang the runes as I drew them on to the antler. It was so powerful having three females sing together, it made me feel like we were channeling the Norns, who gave Odin the knowledge of the runes. I had to keep this set for myself.

  The weather was nice and Chase was not working today so he decided to play his guitar which he had not touch in a while. Any time played Chase always ended up getting lost in the music, “this is my melodies, music of the heart only a whisper this is my melody-” he sang but stopped when he noticed someone. 

  “Hey, i did not realized that someone was around”

Still Do.

Recommended Song: Un-thinkable (I’m Ready) by Alicia Keys


Moment of honesty

It had been six months since I’ve started coming here.

About the same time our group had debuted.

Cooking King Restaurant.

A quaint, little restaurant, nestled in between a tiny, neighborhood corner store and a dry cleaner.

I reached for the door handle and the bell chimed to signal my entrance.

“Hey Ho Seok. Welcome back. Only you today?” The owner’s son, Joon said, as he wiped his hands on his apron, while walking from behind the counter, towards me.

“Um, no. There’s one other person coming. He’s just getting something from the car.”

“Ah alright, follow me.”

I followed Joon down mini rows of people seated at low wooden tables, which are spread out across the restaurant. I looked around to the waitresses and noticed that there was something slightly off.

“Umm…. is Cassie working today?”

Someone’s gotta take the lead tonight

Whose it gonna be?

A small smile grew on his face.

Oh God, he knows.

Dear Taylor...

@taylorswift

I don’t know if you’ll read this…

But I made a new blog dedicated just to you.

I hope you’ll lurk me and notice me at some point, and read this…

I want you to know, that you’ve been my role model and saving grace since Elementary school,

and since my papaw passed away when I started high school in 2011.

And a few months later when my dad stopped talking to me (we haven’t spoken in 5 almost 6 years.)

See,

I’ve always been the awkward one. I lost a lot of friends.

I never knew I had autism until Sophomore year of high school.

I was 17 then.

And I’m 21 going on 22 now.

I was so alone.

I was bullied.

Nobody wanted to be friends with me much at all in Elementary school and left me to play by myself.

One time in the 5th grade,one of my friends who I told a secret to about the guy I really liked, told the girl who used to be my best friend, who was his GIRLFRIEND, that I liked him and everyone turned on me.

In middle school it continued… but diff people.

My best best friend who I met in 5th grade and a lot of my friends turned on me.

One of them I had invited to go with me to a Jonas Brothers concert, was a part of that.

(Long story short, that friend didn’t go, and I took my absolute best friend who went to a diff school in another county (and I met her when I was the third grade!) PS- She’s the one who got me into your music. I don’t talk to her much anymore. But if we got to meet you together, I’d cry. We used to watch you on Ellen all the time.)

But Even in High School it continued.

My so called friends (including my best best friend that I met in the 5th grade)started to turn on me and left me alone at the lunch table.

I was crushed. I didn’t know what I did wrong.

The guy that I really liked was one of them.

I had wanted to never go back that stupid place ever again.

I couldn’t even do online school.

So I had to deal with it until Senior year when my fam moved back home to Ohio.

I finally was accepted for who I was.

I was bulled by a music teacher for having trouble with sight singing for our choir competition and by some of the class for that and other reasons.

I hated my life for a very long time.

But I once I got to the 4th grade, your album came out.

And I loved it.

It made me happy every time I heard “A Place In This World” come on in my MP3 player when I was 11.


For my 6th grade talent show, I performed Change. I loved that song so much.

Then at my 8th grade talent show, I performed White Horse. (Acapella btw. Cause the track I originally bought wasn’t right. The timing was off af. Ps- Bad idea. Cause I knew (and still know it ) by heart so I would pause when I knew it would on the original track cause it was in my head, so everyone would start clapping because they thought I was done. Lmao 😂😂😂 my principle had to shut the clappers down and tell them that I was still going.

Senior Year- Talent Show… I brought the house down with my performance of Shake It Off.

You have to know that I was always a big scaredy cat… and I couldn’t sing with my glasses on when I sang in talent shows.

I was too scared to sing in front of people period.

But that night… when I sang shake it off… I felt like I was invincible. I sounded perfect. My dance moves weren’t that great. But they wowed the audience. I still get complements for my performance, today.

(Well, when I come home to visit.)


But Tay… I wore my glasses for the first time in many years.

And I wasn’t scared anymore.


I also happened to sing more of your songs in public that were karaoke days and at my graduation party.

Middle school- “Love Story”, “Picture To Burn” and maybe a few others. It’s been a long time.


While I was in Florida visiting my Mammaw, I did an old 8th grade throwback, “White Horse.”

And at my grad party from high school, May 30, 2015,

Shake It Off.

With. My. Glasses. On.

And You also helped me (with also cred to an ass lode of Gilmore Girls) with the move I had from home to NC. I was heart broken. I had started over finally where I always wanted to be. I was born in Ohio and pretty much all my fam lives and is from there. This was in August.

I was jobless since then until a few weeks ago when I finally got a job at Best Buy!!!

Yayyyyy!!!!!

Ps- I’ve gotten lots of compliments about how I sound just like you when I sing!! :) ❤❤❤

So to end this and if I went of topic or didn’t make any since…


I wrote this post to tell you that,

You have saved my life. You’ve given me confidence to be myself and to keep my glasses on!!👓 and shake off those haters!!

I love love love you T!!!

@_amatsuki_ 今日ほんとうに嬉しかったし感動したのは、生だから後ろまで聞こえないといけないと思って、みんなの中に入って歌っていたんだけど、僕の周りの人たちが後ろの人に気を使って座ってくれたんです…!!

僕はその光景を見て、歌に気持ちが入ってしまったよ…!!!

amatsuki: I was so happy today. I was singing without a mic or anything, so I sang in the center of the crowd. The people sitting in the very front sat down out of consideration for those in the back, and I was just so moved…!!

My singing got all emotional after seeing that…!!

Kyu: Actually we have many common points. We are both joining the group a bit lately. Ryeowook was a “late” trainee and I was joining the team lately. So, in the past, what were we? We are now going to talk about that and sing.

Wook: Maknae’s past journey~~Babam (KTR tone) 

Kyu: Sukira DJ, please discuss with me. (to do the KTR tone together)

Wook: I see.

Kyu: You didn’t tell me before. (to do the KTR tone together)

Kyu: Ryeowook, do you remember your first debut stage?

Wook: oh.. before debut.. Everybody, did you watch the video clip?

Fans: YES~~

Wook: Why watching it?

Fans: You are cute!!!!

Wook: Cute?

Fans: YES~~~

Wook: Actually I was chubby at that period…um…right….i was fat and short..haha…but at that time I really wanted to sing, I asked myself, “Can I really become an idol?”

Kyu: Ah…it seems that you were dreaming to be an idol..

Wook: Right..hahaha

Kyu: Which performance impressed on your memory the most?

Wook: For me, 걸음이 느린 아이(Slow Walking Kid)

Kyu: the one in showcase?

Wook: yes, I sang it in the showcase. Also I was using this song for the first SM audition. So, because of this song I can become (a member of) Super Junior.

Kyu: Oh, I see. Please ask me.

Wook: So strange.. haha Kyuhyun-xi..also..how you…

Kyu: My memorable performance?

Wook: That’s right.

Kyu: Please ask me what my memorable performance is.

Wook: Before debut, which performance impressed on your memory the most?

Fans: ChinChin Festival!!!!

Kyu: Please don’t say ChinChin Festival first..

Wook: AH! We are both debut from ChinChin Festival!!!

Kyu: Oh right! We come from ChinChin Festival!!

Wook: I didn’t know it.

Kyu: We really have a lot of similar things! Just except the height.

Wook: ah~ I didn’t have double eyelid!!

Kyu: For me, before debut, actually I didn’t think that I can be a singer.

Wook: Really?

Kyu: I was thoughtlessly and just want to sing. So I just liked people clapping when I sang. Therefore I was so nervous when I was singing in front of about 100 people. I was modesty. Also eyes were unassuming at that time.

Wook: I was shocked.

Kyu: I would like to think about 8 years ago and then sing today.

Wook: oh really?

Kyu: Yes.

Wook: Then I would also like to sing to you all. Actually when Yesung knew that we are both on the stage, he thought that we will sing “Gray Paper” again.

Kyu: Obviously I thought we will sing “Gray Paper” too.

Wook: But we are now having Maknae’s past journey~~Babam (KTR tone) 

Kyu: I did tell you to discuss with me!Ryeowook-ah!

Wook: ok I know I know~

Kyu: Once again!

Wook: Maknae’s past journey~~

KyuWook: Babam (KTR tone)

Wook: So, I will start first and sing a little bit for all of you. Please be ready for clapping~~:P

vid:(c) trans:(c)

what i love about them here not only how they talk so easly together and how it’s shown they know alot about each other, i love how they laugh together it’s really cute ;A; 

It's been a long day, without you my friend ~Omelia

Under normal circumstances, I would write a huge as f*ck Authors note, with the prompt and stuff, but that would spoil everything.

Don’t try to shoot me through your screen.

It’s been a long day without you my friend
And I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
We’ve come a long way from where we began
Oh I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
When I see you again

The funeral was crowded. Many people had come. 
There were people Owen knew, and people he had never seen in his entire life. It didn’t matter. Nothing mattered anymore.
Callie usualy never sang in public, because she was terrified of standing in front of a big crowd. Today… She had liked it to make an exception.
Seated on the first row, his mind could recognise every word. His soul did not.

How could we not talk about family when family’s all that we got?
Everything I went through you were standing there by my side
And now you gonna be with me for the last ride

Torres had also been the one who had pulled Owen through the entire day. She had been the one who made sure he would not freak out, or get an PTSD attack, because she knew his triggers. She had also been the one who explained to people why he had not talked since it had happend.

[FANCAM + TRANS] 140126 Jaejoong’s Last Ment Before “One Kiss” Performance

Thank you for the encore call. Thank you for the encore call.

(Fans: Kim Jaejoong~ Kim Jaejoong~)

It was good – the encore. Thank you everyone.

Last time in my concert… I said this before; there were singers who didn’t come out for encore in their concert. I have seen a concert where the audience thought it has ended and didn’t call for encore. A year has passed. Even after a year, thanks to you, I’m still a singer who comes out for encore. I’m overwhelmed with emotions.

So I’m still alive~

It’s just a very small thing. But as time goes by, it touches my heart by more than tenfold, hundredfold.

I grow just a year older but becoming 30 from 29 is scary. Even so, it’s still OK. My friends are all 30 years old.

My thankful heart is also like that. There are many things which stimulates me, make me reflect on myself, also make me regret. As my tour comes to finale… the people here, after I released my album, endlessly love me, endlessly listen to my music, and endlessly come to my concerts. And today, of course there are people who come to my concert for the first time. But there are also people who followed my entire Asia tour.

We know all those little things. Your little acts, your little words, your little attention, I feel it all every time. I didn’t say these words in other concerts because they’re very banal. It’s cheesy but today is my birthday, right? Me too, in the old days, I also liked other artists. There was some person that was a “star” to me too. In that person’s birthday, I was excited as if it was my birthday. I think, with that same feeling, you’re also very happy today, like a festival. We talked a lot, everyone listened to my stories, we enjoyed together and you sang [a birthday song] for me. I think there is no happier day than today.

In my first greeting, I already told you, right? Everyone who came today is lucky and me, who is standing in front of you, is also lucky.

For the time being, I won’t be able to hold a birthday party. That’s why this birthday is more meaningful.

(Fans: We’ll wait for you!)

I wish people who are waiting for me could wait for me till the end, no matter how long it will be, yet I don’t want to do such thing as begging you [to wait]. But, I can promise you one thing. When I come back, I’ll grow a lot more, I’ll sing more “explosively”, work harder, try harder in self-management, and will make you regret, “Ah~ I shouldn’t have left him~” (Literally, “Af~ I left him for nothing~”)

I’m a very hard-working guy. Elated right? You got excited just by thinking about it right? Time flies by very fast, right? I’m not afraid. I’m just shaking a little inwardly (LOL)

If I were in the situation where I couldn’t ensure anything and where I weren’t assured either, when I thought about going somewhere far away, I would feel suffocated, frustrated and sad. But because I have quite a lot of insurance [from fans] and there are so many people who keep reinforcing that feeling, I’m not afraid at all. Worry? I’m not worried. That’s why I can stand here and talk to you. People who leave me will regret instead.

Yeah, talk is no longer needed. There are things that only we can understand right? People who see Kim Jaejoong for the first time and watch my concert for the first time might not really know what I mean. But such things exist.

People who don’t know much about me, if you think, “The concert was good. That guy is better than I thought,” if you think just a little bit that I’m not bad, please listen to my music. I also have acting activities, I will be sincerely thankful if you watch my dramas, movies with attention.

There is only one song left in today’s finale.

(Fan: Jaejoong ah, I love you!)

I love you too.

The last song… When I started my national tour after Asia tour, in Busan and Gwangju, many people asked me to sing this song. So after monitoring, I decided that I must sing that song in this place! This last song… Then I’ll sing this song for you like a goodbye. Today was really fun. Thank you.

Clean by Taylor Swift (Cover)

taylorswift,
Flashback to my eighth birthday. I had a huge box waiting for me in my grandmother’s living room. I thought maybe it would be some new toy or another doll, but it wasn’t. I was surprised to find a light blue guitar waiting to be played. A couple months after opening that box, I started taking guitar lessons. While playing through Teardrops on My Guitar, my teacher asked me to sing along. So that’s the story of how all of this happened.

Teardrops on My Guitar was the first song I ever performed in front of anyone. I sang quietly in front of close to 50 people in a small church just down the street from my house for my guitar recital. The sound was lousy and I was terrified but that one time led me to now.

I have been playing guitar and singing for almost ten years now, and I’ve played your music for the majority of those ten years. I remember getting out of elementary school and making my mom play your first album in the car all the way home. You have made me who I am today.

That’s why I’ve decided to cover your song Clean. This song means so much to me, and the speech(es) you give before it on tour make my heart happy. When I was in middle school, I was bullied for being “fat” and “ugly”. I was given awful nicknames by all of the boys in my seventh grade class. From then on, I always had low self esteem. Then, in high school a couple of the boys from middle school were in my freshman class. They continued to pick on me, not so much with the mean nicknames, but they just didn’t respect me as a human being. They wore me down so much to the point where I considered suicide. I only told one person about it at the time and she said I need to go talk to my mom, even she didn’t know. We talked and she helped me break through that darkness, but my confidence has still always been extremely low.

To me, Clean is about reaching that point in your life when you can look back and learn from your past. You can take a deep breath and stop hating yourself for you mistakes and your flaws. I remember being at your 1989 show in Philly on June 12 and hearing Clean live for the first time. In your speech you said something that rang true to my life. You said, “You are not someone else’s opinion of you. You are not someone else’s definition of beauty.” Little did you know that I had a conversation about self image with my grandmother that very same day and she said the same thing.

Taylor, you have taught me that I am not my mistakes. I am not anyone else’s opinion of me. You have taught me to love myself. You have taught me that walking through rainstorms makes you clean. You have helped me move on and love myself. You have taught me to be fearless. You have taught me how to be clean. I cannot thank you enough for always being there for me when nobody else was. Your music has always been a go to for me, no matter what mood I’m in. I hope you can see how much this song and your music means to me through this video. I love you so much.

Love,
Emily

Guys it would mean so much to me if you watched, reblogged, and liked this. Also if you could tag Taylor, it would mean so much to me if she saw it.
