Mess Up - Step Up

  So, today, I had Karma(Westlake's step team) try-outs. I knew the step so well. It was pretty much perfect. We were auditioning in 5s. I was #6. So I found the girls who were #7,8,9, & 10. We were practicing together and we werent together. But, I told them that even if we sound all out off wack to KEEP GOING, because if you mess up and you keep going the judges probably wont care that much.
  When it was our turn to audition, Ms. Blackman(the sponsor) counted us off and we started. We werent together at all.. But everybody kept stopping and I didnt stop until Ms. Blackman told me to. Then #10 quit. So, Ms. Blackman gave us another try, and IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STEP, #7 & 9 stop and quit and mess up me & #8.. I was SO MAD, but I kept going to the end even though I messed up alot. After we finished, Ms. Blackman asked us what our talent was and had us do it. I sang "Price Tag" by Jessie J.
  As soon as I got out of there, I started crying. I was so dedicated and determined to getting on the team, and then, somebody ruined it for me. So I called my momma and she told me to ask for another chance to prove myself. So the captain talked to Ms. Blackman and she let me perform again. That time I did it almost perfectly; I had like one miniscule mess up but I kept going and acted like it didnt happen. That time I did AWESOME. I just hope I make it on the team. I will know tomorrow morning. I am gonna say a Prayer and I hope all my followers and readers will too.


  1. I am so proud of you. That team would be lucky to have you.

  2. Maya you showed such determination and maturity by sticking with your goal in spite of the others who lost faith. Whether you make the step team or not (which I'm sure you will!) your attitude makes you a winner today, tomorrow and for every goal you shoot for! Don't ever bend, break or turn around due to peer pressure, low self esteem or doubt! You know your tremendous level of talent and it's time to let her SHINE!!!
    Abundant Blessings & Much Love & Encouragement to You!
