Can we talk?

I have to tell you something about myself: As a kid, I never wanted to admit when I liked something, anything. I don't know why. I just didn't want people to KNOW that I felt strongly about anything. I mean, what if they didn't feel the same way? And I hurt their feelings? Or worse, what if they hurt MY feelings?

So, when people would say, "I LOOOVVVVEEEEEE Michael Jackson." I was all, "Hmm." Or when people were like, "Full House is the BEST show EVER!" I'd be all, "It's okay." I did NOT love Michael Jackson. I loved Brian Adams. And Full House WAS the best show ever. But I never told people that.

See? It was a problem.

As an adult, I have attempted to "outgrow" this little tendency, but I'm not always terribly successful.
But, today. Today I am embracing my inner-self, and declaring to the world:

I am going to the Casual Blogger Conference. And I am REALLY happy about it. (And now I'm hiding my face!)

I wonder how people will react to this?

"What is the conference?" Some will ask.

"Who else is going?" Others will query.

"Morgan, you are a dork." Most will conclude.

Well, all I have to say is, the ONLY hobby I currently pursue is blogging. I do not scrapbook, or take pictures. I do not cook for fun nor do I have time to sew anything these days. I just have a few minutes here and there to bang out my inner-monologue for the world to see. And so I do.

Besides the list of speakers is freaking amazing. I mean, seriously.

In addition- I write for Mormon Mommy Blogs, and it is my blogger duty to attend. (Okay, we're not required to, but seriously, it's a good reason...)

Plus, I will be living in Sandy. It's silly to NOT go when I'm right there.

Furthermore, I do not get to go to the Doulas of North America Conference as I had originally planned. I do not get to go to NYC this summer as I had also planned. So, dangitalltoheck, I'm going to this conference.

I really am excited about it. So call me a dorky weirdo, but I am really looking forward to it! I would not say NO to friends of mine going along too. Otherwise, I shall have to sit by myself. I HATE sitting by myself. I feel like a dweeb.

So, click on my cool button there on the sidebar and take a looksie. You can buy tickets right there on the webpage. PLEASE come, it's going to be a blast!

When is it? It actually sounds really interesting

Alisa and Jared said...

I would SOOOOO go with you, if money wasn't an issue. Darn it!

*I* think it's great that you're going! I don't think you're a dork. Either that, or I'm a dork with you. Loved the "hiding my face" detail.

And so sad you're not going to the DONA conference! *sigh*

Rachel- I KNOW! I want to be there so so so bad (and not just for the CEUs.) But the cash will not be there. Unless something miraculous happens with Derek's employment...

Alisha- Friday and Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. The 28th and 29th. COME WITH ME!

Alisa- I know. I told Derek that I would very much like to go. And he was all, "GO!" so I spent the money. :)

I wonder why kids get that tendency? I don't get it when I have students that are hellbent on not letting me see them adore me. Weirdos. And I'm so jealous!!!!! I'd so go if it were closer to the middle of nowhere...

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

I'm jealous. I wanna go. I think during the whole conference I'm going to sit in my room and eat chocolate... unless I magically win a ticket. But I'm not holding my breath. I'm not ready to move on yet.
