Gencon is in the middle of a 2wk vacation for me, so I have to throw in that I'm looking forward to not working for 2wks.
This is also the first year we're bringing friends along, so that should be fun. It's also the first year we've gotten tickets to the games library, so I'm looking forward to some low-key, less-intense browsing and playing of new-to-us games.
Mostly, though, just the total escape from all adult responsibility for a few days to play games and forget about real life problems - staying up too late hanging out with friends, exploring the exhibit hall, taking in all of the sights and sounds of the con, seeing the crowds of happy people - all of it.
Although Gencon does come with some bad luck for me that I'm hoping to get rid of this year.
- 2017: Right after we came home, our dog died suddenly.
- 2018: Our other dog got sick and died about a week after we got home.
- 2019: I came home to find out the next day that I was losing my job.
It'd be nice to break that streak this year!
Looking forward to being surrounded by my tribe. Honestly I don't care much about the details but being around people who I share something in common with recharges my batteries to make it worth the trip.
Dude, your luck is terrible.
Just hit me like a bolt of lightning that it's not far around the corner, and I'm super hyped! I'll be first time solo this year, so am looking forward to trying new things and meeting new folks.
Been doing this since Kenosha Parkside and I'm as excited as ever to be among my people!
