Friday I get on a plane to Chicago for the weekend. I am going to Bloggy Boot Camp.
And I am nervous. And it gets under my skin and makes me uncomfortable. So I get grumpy and withdraw.
When I went to Bloggy Boot Camp in Philadelphia in May, I was also nervous. But I had a secret weapon. My SIL Diane from One LoCo Mommy was with me so, in my mind, if I started to freak out I could simply clam up and she could do all the talking. I would still be social but by proxy. It was a genius plan.
I ended up being able to communicate fine on my own and walked away from the experience with new friends.
So why am I nervous now?
I guess because I don’t have that safety net even though I didn’t really need it before. It’s been a very long time since I hopped on a plane to a far off place all by myself.
My head knows that I will be fine. I am looking forward to the people I will meet there.
But I’m still nervous.
