I WANT TO GO TO ONE!! But I'm broke and cannot afford it lol. Also its embarrassing to say and something I am trying to get over but all of you seem so wonderful and I don't know how I'd fit in...silly I know. Anywho if you guys ever decide to do a NYC g2g it'd be awesome otherwise I look forward to the pics and stories.

I understand this, Unagie. It's a bit daunting the first time.

I have said this before and it bears repeating - when (note - not IF) you attend a g2g or meet an SIer in person, I think you will be amazed by how comfortable an experience it is. Even posters I didn't know well from the boards were like old friends.

There's *something* that we all have in common and that, as unlikely as it seems, gives us an instant comraderie. A shared experience base.

Meeting SIers is an amazing thing. I highly recommend it.

Thanks NIK♡

Unagie,

You COULD host a G2G in NYC..??? That way people would be coming to you...just saying...That way you could be sure to do things that can keep expenses down. Lots of free (or minimal cost) things to do in NYC.

Hugs,

K

Bus from NYC to DC is only $45 roundtrip. Just sayin'.

Unagie posted 4/10/2013 14:17 PM

Ummm host one...I is scared to attend one lol.

Ama I was thinking about that.

Unagie, I feel the same way . . . like the strange new kid in kindergarten. If you can do it, I can do it

simplydevastated posted 4/10/2013 14:29 PM

Yup, I feel the same way. I said in a different thread that I feel like the kid at recess who runs along side everyone but who isn't really playing.

One day I'll find the courage.

Awww c'mon newbies. It's ok. We don't bite.

Seriously, it's nothing to stress about. (Don't roll your eyes. And I know you are because I did the same thing when the vets told me it's nothing to stress about.)

My first G2G, I was scared out of my cranium. I honestly don't remember much of the exchange with the first SIer we met upon arriving at the hotel. (Sorry gahurts!) My nerves were SHOT.

I discovered, there is nothing to be scared of. All of us, each of us, are every day people. I'm just a girl. My husband is just a guy. Sure we all have a different story, different professions, different quirks, different victories and defeats, but at the end of the day, we're all just people. Fighting the same kind of battle. Trying to make it thru another day.

There's no "labels" at G2G. That was my biggest fear. That I'd be the black sheep of the bunch. Not so. I was treated with as much kindness and respect as the BSs there.

It's not a BS/WS thing. It's a human thing.

G2Gs are totally worth going to!

Do. It!

Not really but I apparently am still Moo and everyone else gets a real name.

They can be terrifying at first, but they are a bunch of fun. I've been to way too many because of the fun and friends.

One of my first G2G's I drove many, many hours (MA to VA).....got almost all the way there and thought "Oh shit! WTF and I doing? I'm going home."

I was also afraid I wouldn't fit in. But I didn't go home and had a great time.

MA to NYC is only a few hours. So when is the G2G?

^^This

The only difference between a manifesto writing hermit and me is that I shower at least once a month, so the thought of attending a G2G made me miss a few extra desserts since I was so nervous. I had 73 reasons why I could have backed out of attending the NorCal G2G and had a ready made excuse to leave early since I needed to visit my 98 year old Grandmother. I was late visitng my Grandmother because I didn't want to leave the G2G.

When you do finally get to meet Moo, bring him some avocados and you will make his day. When you meet Jrazz, be sure to have plenty of Bleu cheese for her and Red Bull for you- she luuuurves Bleu cheese and you are going to need the Red Bull to keep up with her.

Set aside the $45 and go to DC, it will take you months to stop smiling.

Yeah, except this time I'm TOTALLY going to remember to bring the sticky name tags I always mean to bring. And by name tags, I mean address labels that I may or may not have acquired from work. (Okay, not really, they're leftover from my wedding invitations, but that just sounds pathetic!)

Unagie, if you want to come down to DC, please let me know. I can hook you up!

DixieD posted 4/10/2013 15:29 PM

Well, I told Aubrie if Moo was going there would be nothing to worry about. He's a great veteran who makes newbies feel comfortable. I guess that's why he's a guide....

Sorry Moo, no pressure.

Not really but I apparently am still Moo and everyone else gets a real name.

It's like Cheers. Everyone knows your name and around here that's your name.

MovingUpward posted 4/10/2013 15:33 PM

I can handle the pressure. I am a g2g veteran for sure.

Jrazz posted 4/10/2013 15:40 PM

Why I oughtta....

Unagie posted 4/10/2013 16:17 PM

You guys made me smile just reading the posts. Aubrie how'd you know I had the "yea sure" face going. Ama I am seriously considering it. As for hosting one I think I need to get one under my belt first lol.

dlmos posted 4/10/2013 16:30 PM

I just went to my first G@G in houston and it was GREAT! I'm not good at large groups and it is definately way out of character for me. But I can tell you it was the best decision I've made this year. Everyone was so nice and made it so easy to relax. You should definately go to one!

gahurts posted 4/10/2013 16:38 PM

I've been to two and they were both fantastic. It is amazing how quickly we all just relax and become friends. Do worry Unagie. It is well worth it. You will not regret going.
