Instead of going to any Halloween parties I attended a very fun networking event with Traverse Events.
It was a bit of a scramble getting there- I got lost – but eventually I found my way to the Doubletree Hotel and was handed a glass of champagne when I arrived. I felt right at home.
It took me a couple of minutes to work up the nerve to actually join the party. I’m still trying to get the hang of networking and meeting new people. I’m a bit shy when it comes to make the first move. This is probably why I haven’t met a ton of new people at my school. So at first I was kind of lurking around the cookie tables sipping on my champagne and not really interacting with anyone. It took another blogger’s encouraging smile to get me to finally get in the game.
Once Sian arrived though everything got easier. I met a bunch of people, followed several new bloggers and even managed to try out the photobooth. I didn’t win any raffle prizes but I did get to try my first Pim’s drink. It was yummy!
Looking forward to more Traverse Events!
