This evening, there is a gala (which I hope is casual because I don’t have anything dressy) with food and drink. I am going but I am rather dreading it because I really suck at networking and meeting new people. Really suck at it. I am shy. I hate that awkward feeling when you try to insinuate yourself into the conversation. I get really nervous and scared and want to go and hide.
And then, there’s the “drink” part. I think just about every medication I’m taking says not to drink alcohol while taking it and I’m on five of them. So, no wine for me. It’s awkward to be the one person who is not drinking alcohol.
