So I got back from Anime Central on Sunday night, but I'm only just now feeling awake again.
The convention itself was pretty great - I got to see some old friends, meet some readers of UnCONventional who I hadn't yet, and talk to lots of people who hadn't yet been exposed to the awesomeness of my stuff.
As an added bonus, I also got to see my brother for a bit, since Crysta and I crashed at his apartment.
It's my first time back at a con that size in a really, really long time, and while I still prefer smaller events, I will probably go back next year. My only big regret is that I didn't get to spend as much time with most people as I would have liked, as ACen was a pretty busy con for me.
But an event like that draws all your energy out, and coming home was like crashing into a wall. Whether I like it or not, life goes on post con, and I have schedules, deadlines and work to get done... so I've been kinda in autopilot since.
But today I felt awake. Which is, y'know, a good thing.
The next con on my calendar is Oz Con in West Plains, MO from June 26th to 28th. I'm a guest of honor there, and it's officially my first convention in the state of Missouri. After that, I'm taking July off this year, followed by my annual Geek.kon pilgrimage August 21st to 23rd.
Oh god, do I need some sleep.
At least we've got a three day weekend coming up...
