I had a blind date cancel on me just an hour or two before we were supposed to meet. I created my schedule for the week just so that I would have that time off. So it's a bummer.
I've seen her pictures and she's a gorgeous girl. We even texted a bit and she seemed to think I was hilarious. Then a couple hours before we were supposed to meet, she told me that she was too nervous and never had done a blind date before so she had to cancel and she was sorry.
I'm pretty disappointed right now. Everything seemed to be going good. But...I mean, I don't know this person right? We've never met before? So I shouldn't be too disappointed, but I am. And it's not like I can just conjure another date from a different girl just like that since I'm so busy. How do I get over it?

Your problem is that you put way way too much stock into this one date.
Arranging your whole week schedule around one single date?
Could you be any more desperate?
Girls often get cold feet on blind dates. She was a bit sh*tty to do a pull out hours before though. You might have tried to do something about that. Oh well, too late now.
I would suggest you don't tell her "it's okay" or anything like that. Just don't text her at all. She will most likely try to contact you at some point. Your attitude should be "Sorry, I thought I was talking to a woman who might be fun to go out with, not a nervous little girl." Only don't be nasty about it.
You will need to make her feel challenged if she'll reschedule.
As for getting over the disappointment - go approach a girl you like the look of in starbucks or whatever, and ask her out. Try something like "Excuse me, my blind date just cancelled on me at the last minute.. and you're the best looking girl in this place, so could I possibly buy you a coffee?"
Spend the afternoon getting shot down by real actual people (or not) and you'll soon forget all about the cancellation of one blind date.1
