I went to six conferences in forty eight days and that’s just a bit overwhelming.
I had this abstract idea that it was over the course of the around eight weeks or so but then I looked at the actual dates and pulled it up on a calendar calculator and now I want to vomit.
FORTY. EIGHT. DAYS.
This is in stark contrast to the rest of the year when i didn’t attend ANYTHING.
Wait, no, I did That One Thing – OpenStack Project Team Gathering where I did a ton of interviews and OMG I just realized I have to edit SO MANY VIDEOS.
Now, part of the not travelling AT ALL is because I was coming back from maternity leave and didn’t want to travel while the twins were so young and part of the travelling WAY TOO MUCH is because dayum if I didn’t just plan for that so poorly but also I really missed travel and speaking and doing All The Things.
Let’s make 2019 much more balanced and not have entire quarters of no travel NOR have entire quarters of all the travel, mkay?
Also, my partner will kill me, understandably, kthxbye. Cause three kids and one parent is ROUGH.
But first, let’s look back at that travel insanity and Learn The Lessons.
As an aside, I started to write up ALL of the travel reports at once and got completely overwhelmed, so this is ONLY THE FIRST TWO.
Bite sized chunks are bite sized.
