Testing, Testing...

So it turns out that the very informative John Carver has his own radio show that he does at 1pm in the afternoons. He's a great guy, met him in person and I have to say that he's quite an interesting man to talk to. He's been around the block more than once and I learned a lot from him in just the short hour we conversed.

However we did converse for a reason. And now it seems that something very unexpected has been realized. I, A.L. Collins, am going to be... on the radio.

Or, his broadcast rather. You heard it straight from the author's mouth. Mr. Carver has invited me to come speak on his show and I have accepted his offer. Albeit I'm nuts because live talk shows scare the bejujan peppers out of me, I think it'll be a great learning experience for me to grow as a person and it'll no doubt be an amazing experience to be a part of such a motivational show, so I truly am flattered. It'll be on at 1pm on the dot tomorrow (Thursday, January 19th) afternoon and I... am terrified. I'm going to be honest, I don't want to say anything stupid and make myself look like... a goofball. Everyone tells me to just be myself. You know what the issue with that is? The real myself is a goofball. *Sigh*

Don't think I'm not excited and honored to do this, because I am ten fold. It's just layered... underneath all that nervousness... and sweat.

So there you have it. I'm very excited to do this and I can't wait for tomorrow. Now if you'll excuse me I need to practice my radio voice... My mirror is going to hate me for the next seven hours. Have a good night all! Talk to you tomorrow, light FM!
