I'm meeting up with another blogger this weekend for coffee. I'm ridiculously (and unnecessarily) nervous because I've had a bloggy crush on her blog ever since I first discovered it (the pictures! the writing!).
Anyway, I'm a horribly awkward person in real life, truth be told. I'm always afraid I won't have enough to say, or I'll laugh the whole time (I do that when I'm nervous) or I'll accidentally say the wrong thing. That, or I'll make a horrible first impression. That, or I'll spill my coffee all over.
Which I am known to do.
*Note to self: perhaps don't order anything to drink. Is it acceptable to meet for coffee and not actually drink coffee?
ANYWAY. I'm sure all will go well and she'll love me.
Or what if she doesn't. GAH.
I don't know how often she reads my blog (if she does...hey fellow blogger!) because if she's reading this, it could be potentially mortifying. That, or it'll be a good thing because she'll know to lower those expectations one or two or twenty-six notches.
In the meantime, I'm chomping at the bit waiting to hear about D.'s ReallyHardToGetIntoSchool. She could potentially find out as early as this weekend as to whether or not she's in. She sent me a rather dismal statistic last night, though, about that school's early admission...there were 5,000 early action applicants. They have a 6% acceptance rate this year. That's the lowest in that school's history. So it's not lookin' good for the home team.
Which means: if we find out before I meet with the blog friend, I may or may not arrive, burst into tears, and bawl the entire time.
How's that for a good first impression?
