Sleeping with strangers. It’s fun. I highly recommend hopping in bed with someone that you don’t know.
Sleeping with strangers isn’t something that you think you would hear me say. Maybe it is because we have never met in person or maybe it is because I haven’t been around to talk about what I am doing in my free time. I’m sorry for that.
As a blogger, I have had the opportunity to attend several conferences in the past year. I know I may have led you in by shocking you a bit…just something that I picked up at a conference a few months ago…but these conferences are a great time to meet new people. Sharing a room or even a bed with someone that you haven’t met yet is a great way to make some fast friends. Sleeping with strangers is fun.
I am not shy. Alright, I will admit from the time I decide to go, make plans, get on a plane and arrive that I am nervous…out of my mind nervous! I panic about missing my flight, not knowing anyone, not sitting by anyone and even getting home. My husband reassures me that I will make it and so far, every single time I have made it. I lived. It didn’t kill me. Yet (EFT anyone? That’s a blog post for another day). I’m okay.
I understand if you are reserved, shy, or whatever you stance is that sleeping with strangers will be hard, but I am still highly recommending branching out and filling your room up with at least one new person. After all you only live once and hat kind of stories do you want to tell? Do you want to tell your kids that you never lived and that you never did anything fun?
I can tell my kids that I have shared a top bunk with a girl I met in the Chicago Airport on my way to Tennessee. That is had a brief cuddle with a girl that grew up not far from where we live right now down in Texas. All strangers.
I know it is crazy, but I imagine my funeral as one of those that my family gets to see how many friends I have really made throughout my time here n earth. Something similar to the movie Big Fish.
Steps for Sleeping with Strangers:
- Pick a conference that sparks your interests, purchase the ticket and arrange travel.
- Join the facebook group or other forum the attendees are using.
- Ask for roommates or answer someone else looking for one.
- Attend the event and have fun getting to know your new friends.
It seems so simple because it is. You can do it!
So what are you waiting for?
Enrich your life when you attend a blogging conference. Sign up and start sleeping with strangers.
