    I've never had a paid gig. People always scoff when I show them my P&S and my sister never paid me for her pics. I'm glad Hustler rejected them.

    But I can imagine butterflies on your first gig is pretty common, unless you are an egomaniac or a pure natural like aCab.

    :werd: I love how acab is becoming a verb!

    I was pretty nervous, and still get a little bit of adrenaline pumping when I get to a new place.... It's what makes it fun!

    For big events, I can barely sleep the night before. I'll only really get like 2 hours of sleep. I get super nervous but at the end of the day, it's worth it 'cause I perform well.
