    I Am Such a Wreck. Lol

    I am so excited about this date but in the same breath i am scared. I have waited for a week for him to say he can't make it. He hasn't even gave any indication that he is going to cancel. I guess I definitely need some work on my self esteem and confidence. I just get so down...
