So, back to Amateur Night.
It’s not the idea of competing that fazes me.
Because I don’t view myself as competing, I think of it as me putting up a showcase. What freaks me out is potentially looking really bad next to everyone else!
Especially since in this particular Amateur Night, 7 out of the 13 girls performing pole routines are from Advanced. And some of them are really super duper advanced. Like, Good-Enough-To-Potentially-Place-in-Miss-Pole-Dance-South-East-Asia, and Definitely-Good-Enough-to-be-an-Instructor kind of advanced.
So I personally feel like the real competition is by default between the 7 of them, and the rest of us are the actual amateurs of Amateur Night. (No offense to any of my fellow non-Advanced am-nite competitors, I’m just calling this one the way I see it!)
Of course, the point of this whole endeavor is to have fun, enjoy the ride, and be mad crazy proud of ourselves for having the guts to get up on a stage and do our thing in the first place!
Now excuse me while I go back to sewing part of my own costume 😀
