So, I’ve been sitting here since yesterday evening trying to figure out words to describe this past weekend. I finally gave up and decided to apply sounds instead, soo…

BLOOPLEEK RrrAPLORK SHMOOooooooOOOK Werplaaah

But seriously, as a person who lives in regular fear that I am difficult to like or get along with, I am overwhelmed with the immediate feeling of inclusion, acceptance, love and bonding I received over the weekend. It’s been a very long time since I’ve felt so accepted and felt like a contributing, valuable member of a team. An exceptionally AWESOME team at that. I feel like I left a part of my family behind yesterday morning and the idea of waiting at least another 6 months to a year for us all to be together again makes me wish I could time jump ahead to be there. You are all awesome and I cant thank you enough for making this weekend FAR exceed my expectations (which were already pretty high). I had more fun this weekend than I’ve ever had at any con I’ve ever attended, and this is basically my new go to replacing most of the cons I no longer attend.
