The day started like any other day I woke up from a great night of sleep, but I wasn't home in Cedar Rapids. I woke up in my moms house It felt like it did back in my high school days again, but this day was different on this day high school Tee Jay achieved what he could only dream of. On this day I was set to have my homecoming show. With the most craziest nerves, I was filled with joy, but scared as if I stood at the edge of a ledge. My open mic experiences have always had a bad turn out when I'm home, something has always happened, focused to change the curse I got ready to start my day and pictured myself killing the show all day! As my day went on with excitement, I went to visit a few friends and catch up with some family members before the show. Then came time for Mic check, it was 7pm. I took the subway down to the venue with Ham and he really took some pressure off the nerves. Once we arrived Ham and me split and I was to see him later once he and a friend made it to the event for support. At Mic check all alone while everyone else had come with their team and friends I had to get up in front of my peers and practice what I was to do again in front of a room full of people. With my leg shaking like a blender making smoothies I got on stage and as confident as a child at their first talent show and said I'm ready to the DJ, from that point on the rest was history. It wasn't until after this show that my confidence set in that I can make my dreams more than a reality with hard work. This show was more about proving to myself "hey you can do all things you put your mind and heart to."
