I'm leaving on a jet plane... Sort of maybe know when I'll be back again.

Today's the day. Why am I so nervous? I'm not even faking that I don't know my Dad and trying to do the airport as if I was on a business trip. It doesn't make sense. I guess because the rest of convention will be such an unknown. It always is. But I don't know if I can take politics like I'm afraid we'll experience. And I'm afraid that I'll get lost again like last year.
I just hope that this year I understand the issues. I didn't last year, and that didn't help.
In other,less fearful news, I got my flight arrangements for GDB! The great news is that they really tell you everything and seem to think of everything like where you'll meet your instructors, what to do if you have flight changes and they arrange for sighted assistance to and from the gate. Although convention is great, you're on your own and I guess I'm just not used to traveling yet.
I just realized that I just put going to GDB in a "less fearful" category. Guess that shows how nervous I am!
