What am I getting myself into?

Do you ever sign up for something and then wonder why in the world you did? I’m feeling that way right now because I’m soooo nervous. Tomorrow I’m heading to a blogging conference called Blissdom. What you might not know about me is that if I don’t know you or if I’m in a big crowd I’m a really quiet person. I’m not one of those people that can randomly walk up to a stranger (unless it’s a teenager) and start a conversation. Just call me the wall flower.

Right about now I’m feeling like a student the day before junior high starts. (Ok, you caught me…yes, I was homeschooled.) However, we all have our struggles and, although I’ve been working on it and it’s gotten a lot better, worrying about what people think about me is a big one for me. So, I’m just going to go to this conference and have the best time possible and try to remember that I’m not the only one feeling that way.

Although I’m nervous about the conference, I’m excited too. I’m eager to learn a lot during our awesome sessions. Jon Acuff is the opening keynote and I’m super pumped to hear what he has to say!

It’ll be a full few days packed with lots of excitement! I’ll report back and let you know how it goes!

    Good for you, Tshanina!  It’s never easy to step out of your comfort and personality zone.
