To close off Writers week, I go tto see the band The Kickback perform during 8th period. Let's just say that that was an awesome ending to writred week and I am sad to see it end. The performance was interesting and It was funny knowing that sometimes the singer of the band says random stuff because he didnt make lyrics. Also the band had great interct with the crowd further making the performance more interesting. I'm sad to see Writers week go, but I'll be waiting for it next year.
The amazing songs that The Kickback performed in 8th period were a very apt way to end Writer's Week. Their music was very nice and I loved how they invited us to ask questions after every song -- I learned a lot about their journey as musicians and how how their hard work and perseverance allowed them to succeed in the difficult field of music. In my gym period (6th), I also listened to many student performances, all of which were wonderful. My favorite piece would have to be Jerry Zheng's song -- he is a very talented singer and his song was phenomenal. Writer's Week was an extraordinarily fun experience for me, and I look forward to it next year!
I really enjoyed Kevin Prchal's performance on Friday. I loved how meaningful all his songs were, my favorite was the song he wrote for his wedding. Sometimes, especially nowadays, we listen to songs without really thinking about the true meaning behind them and Kevin showed that meaning is important and it reminds us that when all hope is lost, we can turn to music and the ones we love for guidance. I loved his idea of being surrounded by people you love versus being by yourself, it's an idea I strongly connect to.
