    I'm Getting Over It

    I have a friend that loves to go karaoke. I go with her about 2x a month and try to go the nerve to get up there and sing. Its a good thing that its a sports bar and most of the people are drinking. I just act like I had a few too if I'm not particularly good.  Some days I just...

    I Don't Know What To Title This

    I love to sing, but for some reason I can't get up in front of a group and sing. Whenever I try I just sort of get all shaky and red in the face. My ears burn up and my throat closes. I hate that. But when I'm all alone I love to sing. I love to sing so much- it's a passion of...

    I've loved to sing since I was very young, and even was in Choir for a few years, but once I became a teen I became very insecure, and I absolutely hate myself for it. My boyfriend is a musician, and I actually met him because I said I was going to try out for his band...but it...

    I'm really not a good singer,

    although I have gotten some compliments for my singing, surprisingly. I'm too shy to do many things in public, unfortunately. I wait for the right time, and sometimes I actually find the right time, surprisingly. Sometimes I'm not nervous. Sometimes I find the right time. I know...

    There may be one person in this world

    that knows I can sing very well and knows how passionate I am about it. None of my family knows I can, it would come as a great surprise to them!

    Too Shy For Even Singstar

    When I was younger and had lots of sleepovers, I would feel the confidence to sing when we listened to music and played around, but that was only because there was one other person there. If there were anymore than that, I probably wouldn't be able to. I still love singing...

    Singing In The Shower

    After a long hard day of soccer, I just jump in the shower and let it out. Sometimes I sing about how I feel, sometimes it's a catchy song I've heard, and sometimes it just seems right. I get embarrassed because my patents comment on it... And I hate singing in front of others...

    Singing In My Life

    I love to sing but I have no idea whether I'm any good. This is why I cannot sing in public. I love expressing myself through singing, mostly because I write my own songs. I took part in my school choir once but my voice was hidden so I was okay.

    I love to sing, but not in front of people.

    Like I sing all the time when I'm home alone, but once someone comes in I stop. I can sing higher than some girls I know, and it makes me extremely hesitant to do in public.

    Thanks Grandma. Thanks.

    One day I was singing in my room (like I always do) and my grandma walked in and started clapping. It was one of the most embarassing and greatest memories of my grandma. She passed a couple weeks ago.
