Tomorrow I finally get to do something I’ve wanted to do my whole life: travel far enough that an airplane is required.
I am both extremely excited and extremely nervous, the later due to the fact that I am an almost 25-year-old female who claims to be independent in most aspects, yet I have never travelled alone, or been apart from my almost 4-year boyfriend for more than 3 days since we moved in together (sad, I know, but he is my rock and my best friend). And while I am more than prepared to rock the networking scene and my 150 personal appointments at this point mentally, I am also insanely prone to anxiety/panic attacks, which is starting to worry me and put crazy mid-conference freak outs in my head that I am not sure how to handle just yet.
This is a big one, guys, and I am extremely pleased to share the journey with you all when I return, flying out of Kansas City tomorrow morning and landing in Orlando in time to make it to the beginning of the 4-day SYTA conference at the Rosen Shingle.
Here’s to new connections, new experiences, and new found solo confidence!
