So tonight is the night, the night I finally light up for the first time and start hooping with fire!
I didn’t sleep well last night which is usual for me when ever there is something exciting the next day. I feel anxious, excited & terrified all at once and it’s not even lunch time yet. We’ve had a our fire training but you never know how you will react when you are finally really doing it with fire. They keep telling us it’s not a performance & it’s just an experience. You can just hoop around your waist if that is all you are comfortable with or you can do tricks, it’s up to you.
Well I am going to try and do some of our basic moves, there are some moves I probably won’t try just to be on the safe side but who knows, I might not be able to anything or I might be able to do all of them. I am going to try and have someone take pictures of me but they aren’t letting us bring guests so I will just have to see what happens and if there will be anyone that can take pictures. I didn’t buy a fire hoop yet because they are $200+ and I can’t afford that right now so I have only gotten to play with a fire hoop once (without it on fire of course). The thing is you have to make sure you grab it in a spot that’s not on fire to do tricks so that is something I am concerned with not having practiced enough.
I will obviously post pics if I have some & write about the experience. I have been so nervous that I have been biting my bottom lip for the last 2 days & now it’s all swollen up. I also chewed up the cuticle of one of my fingers till it bled, ahhh the wonders of having anxiety problems.
