and shy... I am. I'm not comfortable in crowds of people I don't know (random house parties = not always my scene), and sometimes I can even feel shy in a group of people I do know! I don't know what it is. Don't let me fool you, I make friends very easily, and tend to get along with many different types of folks (I am just really fascinated with people which is why I went into medicine in the first place). But, I still tend to be shy.
I've had a couple conversations with friends of mine that are brides-to-be. A couple of them are SO excited to walk down the aisle and have everyone smiling back at them...I am so not that way. I'm terrified of people looking at me. Especially from behind? Really? I can't even handle the thought of people watching me at all - my face is turning a little red just thinking about it. And it's not just the watching! It's the attention! I'm not really a center of attention kinda girl. Well, not usually. I have my moments.
I bet my best friends are reading this and rolling their eyes as they probably think I'm speaking nonsense. That's why they are my besties...they know me. I guess I will just bank on the fact that the crowd at our wedding will be full of my buds, in which case my nerves won't even show up at the door.
Sara wrote a little bit about this concept last week. Interesting stuff.
