So much fun at the Conference!
Friday, February 14, 2020
I am having so much fun. Yesterday's class was a bit of a mind-blowing happening. This morning's class will be even more so!
Most of my fun is just talking with people as we work together, putting together the conference packets, working the registration table, helping a friend set up his classroom for today and this afternoon helping him in his booth, while his son teaches, in vendor hall.
Had a "computer" friend that we would see each other once a year at a conference specifically request a meet-up before he arrived on Wednesday night. It has just been a great time of warm fuzzy feelings.
My traveling companions arrived last night so while I was having a late dinner (almost 8pm) they sat with me, had drinks and told me of their adventures the past two days.
I guess what I am realizing is this is a really great and fun time for me. Conferences, many times, are about going to classes and then limiting time around crowds. I can pass as extroverted when necessary but I really need a lot of down time with no one around to keep my head on straight. This conference does not seem to be one of those. Part of it is a friend is one of the heads of the conference so I have been in the thick of things more than normal and part is I am among my people!!
Wishing everyone the most amazing Friday, Valentine's Day, give a friend a hug day (made that one up).
