45: Of all the adventures one might have in college nothing compares to performing. The stress and frustration of all that hard work and effort can never opaque the joy and the powerful feeling of accomplishment that result. I suppose this is sort of what it's like to be 'star struck', to know that although the effort has been great the reward is larger still. And in this effort, we reach out to one another and stand together as we watch our fellow performers train their free fluttering, fun loving stomach butterflies to fly in formation. | Michelle | Vanessa | John and I
