My Version of Liquid Courage

Tonight is the first class for the Master Gardening program.

I am anxious.

Don't bother saying, "Why are you anxious?  That's silly!  You want to do this!"  I know that.  I love to learn new things, but being in unknown situations is something I have to force myself to do.  All you extroverts out there should take a moment to be grateful for your situation.  I honestly prefer hanging out with introverts--I understand them, after all--but at times like these a little more extroversion would be appreciated.

Since that's not likely to happen, I did the next best thing.

I bought school supplies.

That frog is covered in glitter.  I figure that I'm going to be one of the youngest people in this class, and someone will undoubtedly make a dumbass comment about my age.  If this is the case, I might as well carry a folder I love.  I can always tell them that I had to wrestle it away from a 10-year-old girl.

The notebook is made of recycled goodness to make me feel a bit better about buying a glittery, nonenvironmentally-friendly folder.

The pens have an ultra fine point of .38mm.*  I write small normally, and my writing gets smaller when I am tense.

I am ready.

Master Gardening class, bring it.

*I am confident there is someone out there who loves office supplies as much as I do, someone who read that and gasped, "There's a .38 mm pen?!  But a normal micro pen is only .5mm!  That's amazing!"  No?  Okay, just me then.

  1. I am an introvert, but I love doing new things. Kind of a weird mix, but cooking class is an example of what we did in NOLA. Perhaps knowing we would never see those people again made it easier. Hope your class rocked.
