It's about to happen!

Postby clarityat3am » Fri Jul 20, 2012 12:22 am

Here in Colorado the Colorado Welsh Society exists and they just sent me an email that there's a Welsh Heritage Week coming up...NEXT WEEK. I am simultaneously excited and terrified. I will get out to at least one of the events one way or another and do my best to not chicken out and speak a little to anyone who will listen. They are also involved in some other annual Celtic events here, so we'll see how that pans out.

The "opening social" event is tonight. I'm having more social anxiety than usual. :lol: :faint: :help:

@Cer: It's at the School of Mines.
@Aran: Diolch!

Enjoy and relax! The worst that could happen is that you meet Welsh speakers and speak some Welsh! :wink:

I came so close to chickening out and not going to the social tonight, BUT I DID IT! We sang songs in Welsh, I got pronunciation help with my Colorama album title, and I spoke the tiniest bit of Welsh to a native Welsh speaker. I DID IT! Ahhhh, so exciting!

There's a movie tomorrow about Patagonia. That should be fun!
