Keep flying

Last week my friends wrote me that there was an offer to work at a festival, they were looking for people who would be in charge of entertaining people. I was free on those days, so I was like why don’t I try.

Some people got a role of dancers and animators, some blew soap bubbles and so on..I was proposed to perform in the air, at first I was in doubt because I had never tried it before, but if you never try you’ll never know, so I accepted the offer.

For unknown reasons I didn’t check the festival facebook event before, so I didn’t know what scale of event I was dealing with. The festival opening day came and  when I arrived at the venue I saw hundreds of people coming 😀 and since my acrobatic skills sucked, I realized that it was going to be a total fail. I had to fly over these amount of people during breaks, without music and do some moves to entertain them..Okay challenge accepted, I counted to three, closed my eyes and jumped, it was kind of zip line and they stopped me in the middle so I could perform and everybody saw me easily. In the end, I just didn’t care about what people thought about me at the moment, so tried to enjoy myself as much as possible, I acted too emotionally and it seemed people liked it:)) It was an amazing experience and I learned a lot. BTW if you ever need an acrobat don’t forget about me, because I’m going to keep flying.
