I went to the roller derby meet and greet I <a ref="http://groupthink.jezebel.com/derby-11545699… yesterday. I met up with a few members and the coach. They were really welcoming, and they were sympathetic to my injury.
I was really nervous about going alone, in case I wasn't cool enough. But I knew that since this is something I want to do for me, then I'd have to buck up and get over my nervousness. I'm really glad I did. Part of what made me to was knowing that groupthink had encouraged me, and would want an update. I couldn't bear the thought of telling all y'all I'd chickened out.
So thanks GT for being awesome in all the ways.
