    Hi, there! I'm Jin, and I am a passionate, talkative, dessert fanatic. Poems, good books, coconut water, and action movies make me happy.

Lip-Sync Rehearsal

My best friend and I are entering a lip-sync battle for Homecoming week (I wrote about it in my AIR JAM blog). This means that we have to choreograph the dance for our song, search for and buy the perfect costumes for our performance, memorize the song lyrics, and rehearse the entire shabang to perfect our first-place-winning lip-sync number.

And we have two days to do it all. We would have more time to prepare the best lip-sync performance the entire country has ever been blessed enough to witness, but unfortunately, we both have to deal with a situation called “I am a college student with classes to atttend, homework to finish, tests to study for, and a job to go to.”

So, really, we will probably only rehearse for one day.

My lip-sync partner has two essays to write between today and the day of Air Jam, an assignment due tomorrow, three shifts at her work over this weekend, and a test the day before our performance that she needs to study for. Oh–and she also needs to make a million flash cards for one of her classes. A million of them.

As for the other half of the lip-sync duo, I have an interview to complete, an essay to write, a research project to make progress on, and four shifts at work–all before Air Jam.

So, yes, we are a little short on time. But as long as we make our rehearsal effective, helpful, and focused, we should be polished up and ready to go in two days. Much like everything we do in college, it’s not about how long you spend doing something, it’s about how valuable that time is.
