Getting Nervous

So I really am never too scared to go on Oprah. The past 2 times I have been extremely excited. I must admit that I am really getting nervous this time. I don't know why, maybe it's because my best friend isn't going to be with me, and that will be a little weird, but I am really getting nervous. I know it is going to be so much fun and I really can't wait to go and play in Chicago again. I get to stay an extra day and I'm so excited to go to H&M. That is probably my favorite thing about going to Chicago, and of course getting a signature "Deep Dish" pizza with my Mom and Dad. It will be so much fun. So I know this trip is going to be great.

I think I'm nervous because for the most part, I have known what to expect from the last 2 shows. I knew what I was getting into, I knew what the story was about, and what I was going to be asked. I literally have no idea about any of that this time. I don't have a clue what is going to be said, who is going to be on stage, or anything. It's all going to be a huge surprise and I am getting a little nervous. I always like to kind of "rehearse" a little in my head before I go, and I don't get that chance this time. Oh well, I'll cross my fingers, say a little prayer, and hope for the best. Chicago....here I come!
