Recently I discovered a local networking organization called See Jane Write. It's a group of like-minded awesome women writers in my hometown, and the creator Javacia had put together a panel discussion on community journalism and the role of bloggers. I was so impressed with Javacia's dedication and the hard work she has put into this group. It was inspiring to sit in a room full of women (and some awesome men as well) passionate about writing. It reminded me of my college journalism classes, only way, way cooler.
And I was way better dressed. And maybe slightly buzzed from a high gravity beer from a local brewery. And nervous as hell.
Can I tell you that when it boils right down to it, I am the biggest chicken! I am socially awkward and very nervous in new situations. And I sweat. Not like armpit sweating, but forehead sweating. Lots of it. In nerve-wracking situations, I start sweating like a marathon runner. It's really embarrassing. But we are friends, right?

I may have been nervous as hell and glistening with lady dew, but I looked AWESOME. I borrowed this eloquii dress from the ladies at Gwynnie Bee (here's my intro post), and I didn't want to send it back. I loved it that much. However, since they have my home address, I figured I better send it back. Don't worry- no pit stains!
