Wiscon has been one of my favorite conventions since I started doing conventions on a regular basis in 2000-ish. When I fell off the face of the planet stopped going to conventions on a regular basis, Wiscon was one of the ones I missed most, so it makes sense, I guess, that when I crawled back up onto the face of the planet a few years ago and decided I'd poke at conventions again, Wiscon was the first convention I went back to.

I don't necessarily love the whole "getting to Wiscon" part of the convention (I don't think I've ever been somewhere that's had a direct flight into Madison, not even when I was travelling for work), and travel lately seems even worse for me than it was in The Before Times, but it's a trip I'm willing to make.

I've seen a lot of folks say a lot of different things about Wiscon. It's a trap! )

Anyway, I love Wiscon. I love the opportunity to see folks I don't get to see very often anymore. I love that the convention grows and changes with new fandoms and new fans. I love that we can have a thoughtful and still squee-filled spilling-out-of-the-room panel for a TV show that ended 15 years ago.

And now I have a day and a half left to unwind and get myself ready to walk back into my day job... where gender and pronouns are assumed, everyone's straight until proven otherwise, and the merry-go-round of fail keeps turning.

What I would really like back is the over-confidence in my abilities that I had almost 20 years ago.

(Also, I would like to not be wincing at that "almost 20 years ago" bit... dear ghod, what is time even and how does it work.)

I sat on this username forever ago and then did nothing with it. I guess perhaps it is time to do something with it?
