Travel in packs
Spending every waking moment together
Drama spilling out everyones mouths
Ears ringing from all the chatter

Ratio of guys to girls; 3:303
We memorize songs faster than what seems humanly possible
Our lives are inside jokes galore
They say we have no lives outside the choir hallway, which is also partially true
They say we’re peculiar and dorky
With our weird obsessions with the latest broadway musical
Always playing on repeat in our ipod playlists

Nothing else in our closets other than
Choir and competition T-shirts and sweatshirts
Polos and black dressy pants
Black Flats and character shoes

Yes, we do eat, breathe, and sleep music
Classical, broadway, jazz, pop, musical theatre, we execute them all
Some more than others
But we tend to reluctantly attend concerts because were not prepared
Even after working for months on end on the material performed

They say we have no friends outside of choir
But say we are the most outgoing and friendly of anyone they know
Trying to make everyone join our activity in the shove-it-down-your-throat sort of way
Obnoxious and emotional as we might be
Were the closest to a family-like community an activity can get
