Hello, my lovely people in blog land. I would like to share with you my second open mic night I attended at Sauced Red Dirt Poetry slam last night.
After talking a shower I pressed my hair to knock out my natural curls (Natural Nation for 9 years strong! 😊) then flat iron my hair into a style. After pressing it, I go to use my flat iron and it died on me! 😡 I was hot as 4 skillets of fish grease. (aka I was epically pissed) I had to do something to my hair and quick. So I used my spray bottle I have of my own natural hair concaution for moister and hair lotion to bring back my curls. I picked my hair out in my natural fro and throw on a headband.
I tried a few different outfits to see which one likes better. Heels or no heels. Skirt, dress, or pants. After going through all of that I ended up wearing a dressy top, semi dressy capries, and my sling back wedges. I’m in Oklahoma and we temps are already in the 90’s so I opted to dress for comfort.
After all of this, I was sitting in my couch hyperventilating, crying, and shaking from nerves and frustration. My youngest daughter saw me and just stared at me because she didn’t know what to do. I have had panic attacks before and both of my girls know if I can’t breath to give me my inhaler and my prescribed Xanax. Long story short, to keep her from worrying I told her to take the dog out while I got myself together.
In the end, I showed up and kinda showed out while in stage. 👏👍Please take a look at my performance and tell me what you think. Scroll to 1:20 (I’m the short black lady wit da fro 😎) if you would only like to see my performance, however there was a lot of talent in that small room. Enjoy everyone. Please comment. I was so nervous I could heals hold my phone. 😂
