Be a Warrior

This weekend is Warrior Weekend in which I finally get to teach my very own bellydance class (sorta) it's more about music and rhythm and very basic bellydance stuff, but I'm looking forward to it. I'm not quite down with my lesson plan yet though. I have the basics down, I just need to figure out the order and logistics. I already know I have several people signed up, so I'm looking forward to it from that perspective. I've also secured a table for myself to vend, and ordered lunch, so I should be good on those fronts as well. I have a weird variety of things to sell, but I also think I'll a better display for things than I did at Bellydancers Ball, so I'm hoping to make a little more this time.

Also, I don't know what, if any kind of use I'll get out of it, but I'm signing up for SquareUp - an app that lets you accept credit card payments. It's 2.75% per payment, but it might be worth it. I've had personal experience with it before - they were using it at Big Omaha last year to accept Charity:Water payments, and it's pretty cool. I might not have the reader by Saturday if I order it today, but it'll be worth it, just in case.

As excited as I am about this weekend, there's also a down side. I'd bought my mother and sister tickets to one of the classes as a Mother's Day gift. I thought it would be something fun for my mom and sister to do together. I emailed my mom the day I bought tickets (well over a month ago now) and told her the date and time. Apparently, she didn't write it down or put it on her calendar or anything. I emailed her a reminder this morning and she told me that she signed up for the 5k at her work, yesterday, and that now she might not be able to get out of it. I'm pretty sure if she explained that her daughter had Mother's Day plans for her, that'd be a good enough excuse to get out of it. But, whatever. So, I might just be picking up Jodie and taking the class with her instead. I'm disappointed, but I usually expect this kind of thing from my mom, so I'm not too surprised.

If you want to see a cool bellydance show - it's 7pm at the Heart of America Dance Center in Lees Summit, MO. Tickets are cheap ($5 I think?) and I'll be the MC for the event. Tickets are available at the door, or you can get them at the Eventbrite site: http://warriorweekend2011.eventbrite.com

Good luck with your class! I might be able to make the show - but I'm got people coming over in the afternoon, so I have to see how that trickles...

Thanks! I'm sad I won't be performing since my foot is still slightly screwed up. But, should be pretty good all the same. :)

OMG! The one weekend I can't be in KC this month! :(

Have fun and good luck! I'm sure you'll have an awesome time.

I'm pretty excited, provided everything pans out as planned. :)

You will be awesome! I will be in South Sioux City at MAGE Con.

I suppose I should update my journal sometime so you know more how I'm doing, too, as opposed to my soundbites of hilarity (mostly to me) on the FB.

Hey! You're loved!
