Post-Show Hangover

It's Tuesday, and I'm just feeling caught up from this past weekend. Saturday was sort of a massive day, all things considered, and it took extra time to get over. But, I THINK things went really well. I've only heard a little bit of feedback from my class so far but what I have heard has been mostly positive. Of course, from my perspective, I feel like it mostly sucked. I enjoyed it, but I put together all this material and I only got through about 1/3 of it. *shrug* I'd definitely like to do it again though, if they'll have me.

Vending was sort of a disappointment, I only made $30 for the whole day - which was 2 sales. I don't feel like that made getting up at 6am worth it. I got 2 hours of sleep Friday night/Saturday morning, so getting up at 6 and driving out to set up my table and sit there all day and not really make anything wasn't really worth it.

Then there was the show itself, which I think was awesome. I haven't heard much feedback of my MC job, but all of what I've heard has been positive. I definitely think I was stronger this time than I was last time. The audience was really with me, and I don't know if they were just good, or if that was me, or if it was a little of both. I don't know. But, it was a lot of fun. By the time it was over though, I was so completely dead tired. I barely made it home, and then completely passed out as soon as I got to the bedroom. Matt woke me up when he got home, about an hour after me, and I ate a burger and fries and then went right back to bed. I slept for about 15 hours all told.

Sunday I woke up at like 1:30pm. The only Mother's Day thing we had to do was go to my Dad's, which was nice, because it took me about three hours to feel like a normal person after I woke up.

I think the only thing that would've made things this weekend more complete would've been if I could've actually done some dancing. I didn't take any of the classes, and I didn't perform, because my foot continues to be a pain in the ass. I mean, it's better and I can move on it, but even after being up and down all day, by Saturday night, I was definitely feeling a lot of pain in my foot. So, I know that not dancing is the right decision. But, I'm missing it something awful.

I'm also feeling a little bit of brain fatigue after having focused so much on getting my lesson plan squared away last week. Like my brain still wants to work on it, even though it's done and over with. So, I need to figure out what to work on next (there's plenty to choose from) but really I think I just need a few days rest. I wasn't sleeping like a normal person last week because I just couldn't get my brain to shut down. I need a reset switch to get it to calm down.

Sorry you couldn't make it. But, you'll have another chance in September. The Bellydancer's Ball show should be Sept. 17th.
