I'm sitting at the starbucks just outside security at the San Antonio airport as I write this. I won't write a whole lot because I would like to just chill out a bit after I get through security and hopefully get in a good power nap. I was up WAY late last night being social and woke up WAY early this morning... it was all very worth it.
Overall, the trip to TMEA for me this year was more fun and more successful than any of the past years, and I had a blast in such a short time. All of the people I got to see and spend time with was great, and I am glad I spent so much time at the Pyware booth, getting a few issues ironed out that I needed. And, funnily enough, teaching me how to do some of the simplest things with the tools that I was just unaware of. Guess I shoulda just read the manual. That's the "man" in me that says I can figure it out on my own. Oh well.
So, overall the only tough thing about this whole weekend was trying to be in multiple places at one time. I did a great job bouncing from one restaurant to another hotel to another bar to another hotel and to another restaurant. Although it was exhausting, I got to see everyone I wanted to and I just felt relieved to see and talk to everyone I saw. When I moved back to Michigan without being able to say goodbye to most of my closest friends, it just felt too disconnected... abrupt? or something somewhat empty... you know? And spending time with Marivy - my favorite part about the trip. I missed her even more than I thought I did. Being with her makes me happier than ever!
I didn't get to see everyone... :/ It's okay though. But I did see a lot of people. And I spent a lot of quality time with Marivy. That girl means so much to me and probably the number one reason I went above and beyond to make the trip down. It was worth it. She's worth it. As for the usual suspects - I know I hadn't seen most of them since TMEA last year, but it's always great to see and talk to old friends - as well as make new ones.
Well, for now that's all I got. I need to head through security and find a space to pass out for a bit... hopefully not missing my flight. But next stop, snowy and colder Michigan. Boo!
