Tomorrow, Tomorrow

Tomorrow is the big day.  I begin my fellowship at Creative Commons.  I am vampira nervous. 

I know, I know; it sounds kinda crazy.  I mean, I go across the ocean to work with people I never met in a country I've never been to, where I don't know the culture and don't even know who I'm going to live with and I'm fine.  But then, I'm about to start a fellowship at a company I know a bit about, where I'm already living (getting settled anyway) and already know how to get around and all that sort of stuff and I'm super nervous.

Well, I guess that's what happens when you reach your goals.  I've had this idea in my head for so long of a my dream job and tomorrow, I go.  What if I don't like it?  What if they don't like me?  What if I can't do the work?  What if there's an earthquake and the Bay Bridge breaks in half again and my bus falls into the Bay?! (guess I don't have to worry about the other things then.)  What if I just can't handle being around that many Macs?

Ok, ok.  Technically, it's not my dream job.  Technically it's just a fellowship with my dream job company.  But, that's good enough to me - I'm nervous.  And I need to go iron my clothes and go to sleep.  I love suits!  Hooray for wearing a nice outfit tomorrow!

We'll see how it goes...

Just your luck....the Apple Developers Conference (WWDC) is in town! Stay clear of Moscone Center if you want to avoid Mac people. As we checked out of our hotel yesterday....they were all checking in...and the lobby was a sea of titanium. It was beautiful! =)
