Rakkasah 2007

Rakkasah 2007 was great !!

Hello there my lovelies,

Okay, so March 16th was my big performance. I did my new sword routine in public for the first time. I was so nervous in the beginning. I practiced a lot, but I was still nervous. It was a big deal for me, especially since it was my solo. I was so nervous that I almost threw up and I have never ever felt that way before

But once I got into it, I had a great time performing. People were into it, and that's what it's all about. Unfortunately I got a foot cramp while I was performing and my hand bracelet almost came off, but it didn't disrupt me.

I saw a lot of people that I know there such as my old teacher and some former classmates. I also talked to this really nice lady. Usually everyone that is about to perform is wrapped up in whatever they are doing and don't really talk to others. While I was in the huge bathroom/ dressing area and practicing this lady started talking to me and wishing me luck. Her performance was before mine and she did a really nice job. She was really pretty and graceful (which is sometimes hard to find in all those performances) She also stuck around to watch mine.

Last year I was dancing with my troupe, Jewels of Opar and this year they danced right before me. They did a nice job. I rode up with them. I also got to see my old troupe member dance a solo. She and I decided to do solos this year. Her veil routine was beautiful and so was her costume.

I have the DVD of my dance, but I am having a hell of a time trying to upload it up onto You Tube, which I also like to call You Boob. If any of you would like to see it and can help me upload this bitch, please give me a shout.

Okay, I am gonna go for now.

Bye Bye !!

Sandra!! Oh, girl, that sounds terrific! Your time alone is serving it's purpose. You are really blossoming. I wish I had been there to watch you and to support you. I am sure you did a fabulous job, because that is just the way you are!
