Anyway, where was I? Oh yea, THE conference. I must tell you, I already have mammoth sized butterflies in my tummy.
This past July, I vowed to attend the next conference. I swore to Karly. She swore to me. WE.HAVE.TO.GO!
I've never been to a BlogHer conference. I have been wanting to go for two years. Just know people, that me going, is a HUGE deal.
Me? Get on an airplane, by.my.self? Go to a city I have never been to before. by.my.self? Attend a conference, by.my.self? A ginormous conference with all sorts of beautiful, funny, and smart ladies and men, by.my.self? WALK INTO A CONFERENCE SMILING AND SAYING HELLO TO PEOPLE I HAVE NEVER MET "IN REAL LIFE", BUT POSSIBLY KNOW MORE ABOUT, BECAUSE OF THEIR HONESTY IN THEIR BLOGS, THAN PEOPLE I DO KNOW IN REAL LIFE, BY.MY.SELF?!!!!
Hell, YES!! This self-proclaimed paranoid, low-self esteemed, shy woman is going to do it. I NEED to do it. For me. To prove to myself that I can do more than I give myself credit for. That I AM more than I give myself credit for.
For me....this will be a monumental moment in my life. I'm stepping out of the security of my bubble and putting myself out there with the best of the best.
When you see me (I'll be the one that looks as though she may either cry and run for the door or puke on your shoes), please, PLEASE be nice to me and then point me towards the bar.
