You and I, we’ve never met personally, so HOW oh HOW is it that I feel closer to YOU guys then I do my own IRL friends? Pfft.
That’s a laugh. I don’t have IRL friends….
How frigging AMAZE-LIGHT BALLS is it that we’ve never personally met but we can still share so much, have so much in common, and have the same OBSESSION with books, blogging, and meeting new people?? Someone please explain this to me because….I just can’t. I can’t..
I’ve learned about customs, culture, and I’ve seen pictures of different places like Australia, the Phillipines, and India. I’ve learned about the foods one typically finds in these places. And believe it or not, that’s the way I learned Spanish, I have friends from South America, Puerto Rico, México, (basically all the Spanish speaking countries) and guess what? I MET THEM ALL ONLINE! That’s also how I met my boyfriend. (He’s from the Dominican Republic)
But anywho, like I said, even though we’ve never met, you guys all hold a very special place in my heart! Ive never been to a conference but it’s one of my dreams to go to one! Maybe I can meet one of you sweet bumblebees in the process one day! That would be epical!
Don’t laugh at me but I don’t even know what goes in at a conference other than the fact that bookish people meet other bookish people and it’s also an opportunity to meet authors. Am I right?
Since I’m still jobless and the pennies in my wallet are gathering dust bunnies, nor do I have funds for airfare….or a train…and my bike has a flat tire, looks like I won’t be going to BEA anytime soon…
Over to you:
Do you like meeting others from all over the country? Hoe many friends do you guys have? Or are you so popular that you’ve lost count? Teehee TELL ME ALL.
