part of that world...  
i went to the auditions
and met up with my friend stewart (whom i auditioned with last time)
&his friends jules & matt joined us too
and matt had us laughing the whole time
(for his song, he sang Vogue - in spanish!
well, bad spanish anyway)

i ended up singing Part of that World from the Little Mermaid
(because i am a dork and that was all i could think of to sing!)
and i sucked (!!)
well maybe not sucked
but i was nervous and my voice came out all shaky
like it does everytime i get nervous.
also i started in the wrong key
and had to try and bring it back down to where it's meant to be
and still sound natural.

but thats okay, you know? because stewart & jules got through to the next round
(even though the judge told jules "you don't have the greatest singing voice"??
oh but she also said, "you're a gorgeous girl" and i suppose that makes all the difference)
and it was just for fun, and just to prove to myself
that i could do it.
and i guess i can be sort of proud of myself for doing it again?
it's been over a year now since i've done any performing arts type things
even though in 2002 that was my whole life.
so at least i didn't chicken out, and i went through with it after all
and i think that's all that matters really.

... so when do auditions for the next Australian Idol begin? ;)

Awesome! I wish I had that confidence.. I want to sing so bad.. but I figure, I'll just do it on my own.. with my own songs and I won't give up 'til I do.

I bet you sing fabulously.

go for it Leslie - reach for the top, i'll support you all the way.
(don't give up on your dreams the way i did. keep on fighting, keep on singing if its what you truly love <3<3)

Yay - Go Jade! =)
I'm proud of you for going and doing it ... that's more than most people would! It doesn't matter about how you went but about how you felt!!
[Were there many people auditioning this time around?? *curious* You didn't say!]

thankyou hon.
um, i think there were about the same amount of people there as last time. about 300, the newspapers said. it was hard to tell
because we were some of the first one's in as stewart got there early;
and they were letting people in as they were letting others out.
so... i dunno :\

That took courage! Good for you!!!

I'm a big chicken! Hell, I won't even do karaoke at the local bars!
But then again no one has really heard me sing in a very long time either!

Some corrections I would like to point out for the post that is above this one ...

#1 - I don't want you to disappear ... I know where you live so you can't hide forever! =)
#2 - The point is to be yourself and no one else can tell you what that is
#3 - YOU ARE NOT A MISFIT!!! ... ok ... maybe you are ... then that means I am too ... lets be misfits together! =) Being a misfit can be fun! But only if you look at it that way! =)
#4 - There is nothing wrong with who you are ...
#5 - If you were a different person then you wouldn't be Jade and I'm sorry but I don't know if I want to be friends with someone else that isn't you =)
#6 - And again ... There is nothing wrong with who you are ...
#7 - I love you ... Hayden loves you ... your family loves you ... God loves you [even if you don't believe in Him] and I'm sure Russ loves you. Just because he can't say it too your face doesn't mean that he doesn't ... hell I don't say it to your face as often as I should but that doesn't mean that I don't!
#8 - Everyone screws up ... just give him some more time. You know that unfortunately hurt doesn't just clear up in a few hours/days ... it takes time! I'm not sure what he's thinking [men are hard to understand anyway] ... but if he's hurting just give him time! You can't tell him how to feel - only he can do that!
#9 - Everyone argues with their partner ... I'm forever telling Daniel I'll leave him!! Most of the time it just doesn't get out into public. It's never anyones fault ... it just happens
#10 - You were special to Russ ... your posts from only a few months ago reflect that - and reflect that he was [is] special to you. Just because things are different now doesn't mean that he didn't feel like you were the real thing back then ... you've said yourself that things change over time. Back then you thought then it was the real thing so why do you think that you think you are missing out on something? The only thing you are missing out on is being happy now ... you are the only one who can change that!!!!
#11 - You are not too difficult to love ... if you were then why would so many people love you then???? *curious* =)
