By the time you nerderinos read this – I will be preparing for my BIIIGGGG trip to Seatle (courtesy of InBed.Me) and my trip to Tampa (courtesy of my parents for my birthday).
I’m pretty stoked!! InBed.me is a fucking GENIUS concept (they help you to find hostels, beds and couches -see who will be there during your planned trip and then allows you to connect before you get there, share tips, and have adventures. AHH-mazing, and run by a bunch of dudes that actually travel so they get the lifestyle and built the site off of a need they saw.) and they’re sponsoring my amtrak ticket and my time spent in the city. OMGGG totally a bucket list item! I’ve been wanting to go to Seattle for YEAAARRRSSSSS!!! Big big big deal in the life of Jen.
Very excited, very grateful.
On the way up, I am going to be writing my proposal for A Nerd’s Guide to Being Unapologetically Awesome. See, back in June, I got fancy pants management that a few months later hooked me up with a lit agent in NY – and they were super inspired when I told them my story and told me I needed to get it down on paper and let it act as a guide to our new generation on how they can lead a fulfilled life. The problem is, writing a book is in and of itself a fulltime job. Dudes, running this SITE is a full time job – you want me to add ANOTHER full time job onto that? Do you not realize there are only 86,400 seconds in the day? So basically, I have now trapped myself on this train for the next 34 hours up, and 35 hours down in the hopes of getting the first draft of the proposal done.
It’s nuts too, you have to do all this market research, and write out close to 100 pages of every detail the book will include – and then, why you are the best person to write it. Writing a book is totally a new experience for me, and while I remain hopeful – if I can’t bust this out of my ADD brain on this trip, I’ll just have to leave the book writing up to the professionals.
Kinda nervous about this one, not gonna lie. OH!!!! And for those of you following me on twitter, I totes took a picture of the super hot guitar guy from the bus last night. I’ll update you all on that story in a bit – lemme get out the door first.
OMG OMG OMG he was so hot. ::sigh::

Special thanks to InBedMe for the sponsorship. Dudes, totes not even kidding – it’s a GREAT idea for a site, and you should totally check it out if you travel, or want to in the near future. FREAKING GENIUS!!!
