It’s been over a week since the Ramadan Coffee therapy session at Showtime Bistro.
I promised to put up the handouts on the blog..I meant to put it up in a couple of days but was unable to because I’m trying to finish products for the Being ME bazaar. I;m selling some Ramadan Decor and Eid Gift items for my Mabrook Moments business Insha’Allah.
The event went well Alhamdulillah. Unfortunately the day before the Ramadan talk, I had a super busy day.
My parents and us siblings hosted a Sip n’ See for our brother and sister-in-law’s first child. Here are some pictures. Please keep baby Eesa and his parents in your duas.
The day of the Sip n’ See, I was on zero sleep. I wanted at least two hours but when my Fajr alarm went off I realized that I was just lying in bed fully awake. I managed to function semi-normally but on a social level I wasn’t great company. My blood-shot eyes and delayed responses probably scared the guests.
Oh well,at least the tea-sandwiches turned out..that’s all that matters right?
So back to my story.. on the drive to Showtime Bistro I was going over my talk with Shaheen and Fareheen (both of them are super eloquent public speakers by the way), I kept messing up and forgetting my points. I started freaking myself out. I mentally listed all the reasons why I was going to fail (yes I know not the smartest move).
I was a wee bit nervous (read freaking out and contemplating jumping out of a moving car so I wouldn’t have to talk) because the exhaustion from the day before left me like an unprepared zombie with a hangover. (more…)
