This year marked to be the most stressful for me preparation wise, as I made a great amount of effort to gather up as much info for my group as possible, and even helping others outside of it during the process. And thankfully, it paid off. Each year is another learning experience for better ways to ready everyone else and myself as well for this ever growing event.
I didn’t have to deal with that many issues this time, and enjoyed myself a lot more than the year prior. Lack of sleep was a given, yet I was able to get in a full day of panels and checked out some dope off site events. Sadly, I didn’t get to see most of the friends in SD that I normally do, but it tends to happen around this time of the year more than the other times when I visit. Either way, it was still a memorable experience. I even got a small bit of the media spotlight as I was asked to do an interview for YouTube (made it to 2 videos as a result). I’m hoping I can use the same approach in preparing for 2015. As much as I’d love to avoid panels completely, there will probably be one or two that will grab my interest as it’s done in the past. Couldn’t be prouder of my group (20 heads and counting) for making this another successful Con. I always wonder how much longer I plan to do this, but in all honesty, as long as most of them are for it, then count me in.
