Today was the first time I stepped outside since Wednesday.
I woke up the past four mornings around 5:30 am and did not return to my hotel room until 8:30 pm.
I ate a disgusting amount of conference food and caffeine to power through.
I was asked to make some last minute changes and sprinted across the convention center on more than one occasion.
I wrote an absurd amount of notes and now have a ton of work to do when I go back.
But I was part of conversations that I know will be pivotal in moving my organization forward. I was thanked more times than I can count and have felt very proud of the work I’ve done. I’ve had some conversations with people that live truly amazing lives and do incredible work. I had the pleasure of getting to know colleagues I don’t get a chance to talk to often and I spent an insane amount of time with my amazing boss, (who works remotely from boston) and was reminded how much I love my job because of her.
And thankfully, because of all these great people, I laughed my ass off. Every day.
It was a tiring few days but as always, extremely rewarding.
And now, I’m so happy to be home.
