Hope My First Isn’t My Last

December 13, 2010

It’s still eight long months away, but I am already losing sleep over it.  Big feelings of excitement, apprehension, anxiety.  Will I have an experience as great as everyone else?  Or will I feel lost amongst the veterans who already know what they are doing.  Or maybe I will make new friends?  OMG, what will I wear?  I will have to go shopping.  I had better start on the shoes now.  They are super important.  And I will need a new bag.  Big, but not too big.

Will all of the women I admire and feel like I sort-of know but have never met be there?

What if I don’t get invited? To any parties, that is.  Or even worse, what if I don’t have anyone to sit with?  Or room with?

No, no, no, I’m being irrational.  Surely that won’t happen.  Maybe there is a lottery system for a roomie, you know, like they used to do for the freshman dorms in college.  And how could I not have anyone to sit with in a room full of people?

It’s still eight months away, and despite my feelings of insecurity and smallness, I am more excited than I’ve been in a long time.  I will be taking a trip on my own, sans husband and child.  And not just any trip.  Business or pleasure?  Both, I hope.  Because I have purchased my ticket, and there are no refunds.  BlogHer 2011.  My first bloggy conference ever, and hopefully not my last.

    I’m definitely going to be going (hopefully for the whole thing, but if not then at least the evening events), so hopefully we’ll get to meet!
