My friend has convinced me to join her for a pottery class this evening. I took some ceramics classes in high school, but never anything that involves a wheel. I’m excited because it’s something I’ve always wanted to try but never had the opportunity.

Even though it will probably be a lot of fun, I’m still fighting back some social anxiety. Part of me just wants to go home and spend the night with my family. But this opportunity is a rare one, so I’m choking back the fear of being completely awkward and uncomfortable to try it out.

So, wish me luck. I’m stepping out of my comfort zone and am not entirely sure how to feel about it.
