Update: On Friday I had a thoughtful little chat with my new friend Kara. She helped me realize that some of my insecurities stem from having to introduce myself so much. I introduce myself to new people at least once a day. In Utah I rarely had that opportunity. Everyone already knew how awesome I was :) Also she expressed some of her feelings that are similar to mine. Neither of us have one big thing that we are really good at. We both feel like we are semi-good at a lot of things and not really good at one thing. Its hard for people like us to tell others about ourselves! If I had to say one thing about myself I would say I am a good friend and a great listener. Of course I'm not going to say, "Hi I'm Melissa and I'm a great listener." But I guess I'll figure it out. Or I'll start running out of people to introduce myself to.
Anyway, I just wanted to say that I feel much better after our chat. And I had a great weekend. Complete with Krista's apple pie that I wish I had a picture of. Next time.
