Major Anxiety

New hair fork!
I fly out to Minneapolis for ARPA tomorrow, and I'm just a BIT keyed up. Not only am I an introvert (people all over!) but I also have an anxiety disorder. So, I'm stressed about the flight out going wrong somehow. Not in a huge plane crash sort of way, more in a no-ticket-suddenly/massive-delay/suddenly-no-room-at-the-hotel-despite-confirmation-email sort of way. Basic things that are stressing me out in a massive way, plus the idea of thousands of PEOPLE there that I'll need to interact with and sessions I need to go to and learn stuff at, and just. AHH. I'm about half-packed, with a check-list waiting for the rest, but WHAT IF I GET THERE AND HAVE NO UNDERWEAR? This is a ridiculous worry, because I already packed it, but that is the sort of thing that is plaguing me at night.

Top - Igigi, Pants - Avenue, Shoes - TOMS, Necklace - self-made.


  1. Oh man, I completely know what you mean. I get the same way about stuff (not the crowds of people so much as the "Did I seriously get on a plane with only one pair of pjs" kind of panic. And ditto the hotel reservations). Anyway, where in MPLS are you going to be? I live in the Twin Cities & I can recommend some great places to check out if you have time. :)

    1. I'm going to be in Minneapolis proper, at the Minneapolis Hilton. So if you know anything awesome within walking distance, shoot me a message!

  2. Well there's always the MOA - totally worth a visit. If you're free to hit up the St Paul side of the river, there's stuff to see there. :)

  3. If you want a good drink in StP -hit up W.A. Frosts.

    You want good [cheap] drinks in MPLS- the CC Club, the Triple Rock & Grumpy's North East are your BFF.

    If you want to meet up for drinks this weekend at any of these rad establishments, MSG me on FB! If not, welcome & enjoy your visit to MN. I promise not to drive like the Natives in the event I ever visit your state. :D
