Tonight, I am going to go meet new people. My palms have been sweating for hours. My heart rate elevated to the point where I can’t sit still. I’m not socially awkward or am I?

I just keep repeating over and over in my head how my one step of social bravery in Fargo 5 years ago brought me some of the most amazing friends on God’s green earth. Tonight, lightning could strike twice… now, if I could just stop feeling like a wreck.
