Quite Desperation

I'm not an introvert by any means necessary.  I'm pretty sure that in my family being anything but loud was unacceptable.  My parents probably did vocal coaching lessons while we were still "inside" to make us able to be just as loud as we actually are.

All that said, despite my non-quite self, I can be pretty quite in times I shouldn't be.  I get intimidated.  I know it sounds ridiculous if you know me because I puff my chest out like a baboon flaunts his butt.  I am who I am and I'm not afraid to show it till I am?  I am going to be going to The Fix in DC on March 8th/tomorrow!  I am very excited to learn and finally be in the room with Jasmine Star.  (I totally get that she is just a person but at the same time she is the first photographer I came across that was nice to other photographers and thus she will always be my favorite... sorry all you other ridiculously talented photographers... she grabbed number 1 and I only recalculate every ten years)  I am totally excited about being in a room with so many photographers all with similar goals. . . but the only times I have talked to photographers in person I have gotten blocked out, both figuratively and literally.  So I am intimidated, but whether they like me or not I am determined to meet at least a dozen people and I will be encouraged!

Oh, I am defiant too.

Sometimes I really wonder why my husband married me ;P

All this to say, just cause you feel a certain way doesn't mean you have to act that way.  Next time you are scared or intimidated,  act on in quite desperation and the boldness you don't have and step out... that's my plan anyway.
