I was going to do a calm before the storm blog in the hours leading up to my flight but I realized I can’t. I’m feeling everything but calm at the moment. Nervous excitement, adrenaline, and a little bit of anxiety in there too.
This is my first flight across the ocean. A flight I’ll be doing alone. To go meet people I’ve known for a while over the internet. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not worried about how they’ll turn out to be, I’ve known them for years. I’ve laughed and cried with them. It’s just one of those moments of “What if I’m not who they expect?” along with just the tension of everything else.
That said, I have not been able to keep a smile off my face for the past week with the thought of this trip ahead.
