I then tried to psych myself up for joining in a group's already-in-progress convo. I swear it looked like I was trying to work myself into double dutch. One step forward, one step back... repeat x12. I eventually grabbed like 8, $70 tank tops and headed to hide out and kill time in the fitting room.
Do you think I'm ridiculous? Well, I don't blame you. I think I'm ridiculous too.
It is just so damn frustrating that I'm like this and can't seem to break it. Why can I be the life of any party I go to, but be so cripplingly shy at a blogger or networking event? WHY?
Point here is that I have another event to attend tonight. Tonight's event is at my favorite Dallas hotel, The Joule, and more in my comfort zone -- but not just because there will be booze. Ok, wait, yes, that's exactly why it's more in my comfort zone.
Tonight's event will be my first official event representing @dallaslovelist which gets me super excited. Attending events, parties, sporting events, festivals and new restaurant openings is the exact reason I started this new account, so here's hoping my excitement will out-weigh my nerves. I guess I was just hoping to get to attend these events with CB, not solo! Ah well, baby steps right?
Plus, I'm much more comfortable jumping into a convo about cool things to do in Dallas (the theme of tonight's event) than I am jumping into a convo about fitness. FITNESS WHOLE PIZZA IN MY MOUTH, AMMMIRITE?
But Dallas.... Dallas I can always talk about!
