Yesterday I auditions for a thing called Valley’s Got Talent. It was weird because it’s the worst feeling I’ve ever gotten for a performance. Let me tell you the short story:
I decided to use Ready Fuels by Anberlin (it was that or the heavily repetitive Seventeen Years by
Ratata). At the waiting lobby my stomach got all weird and my hands were sweating then drying then
sweaty again. I walked in slapped myself in the face walked up to the judges and introduced myself.
The music started and I begun with my Auldey Grey Fox. On the second trick I bumped the yo-yo and
had to start it again. Suddenly it wouldn’t come back up and it was getting slippy. I pulled myself
together and did an Eli Hop combo when suddenly it spun out. I attempted more combos but it kept spinning out. There was nothing I could do so then I switched to my PGM and did a trick
called Captive Gondola. Perfect followed by a revolutions. Suddenly it knotted up, so I switched to
Legacy. I must admit that the Legacy played a lot better up there because I managed to pick up
with a DOT combo, Laceration combo, and a behind the head Eli hop. Seeing I was on a roll I pulled
my own trick: 1A Tangler. Perfect. I pulled off a guitar solo, and then the music started to end.
With my legs open I attempted a Leg wrap trap. It went through the trap but it almost landed and that’s my story.
Is it normal to feel like this? I found the Legacy to be more trusty than my other yo-yos Could it be that I’ve used it the most? Would you say I got in? Has a yo-yo kept spinning out when you least want it to but yet it it was at perfect time during practice? Do you guys go to fast when you’re nervous?
