I leave for PAX in a week.
I am in no way prepared. I’d like to say I’ve planned what to pack, what I’m doing, etc. but I haven’t. I’ve just been too busy with school!
This week alone I have an essay draft and four different assignments due. Next week I have two or three different exams and an equal number of assignments. AND I’m leaving on Thursday, so the week is that much shorter.
I’ve made up a decent schedule of what I would like to do/see at PAX, but I have no idea how that is going to hold up. I have a LOT of stuff on there, and I’m sure I’m not going to be able to attend all of it. People have suggested making a schedule like I have, and then cutting it in half, just to be sure you see the things you absolutely want to. I suppose I can try that.
As far as packing goes, it occured to me that I don’t have a decent bag to pack things into. I guess I should probably get one! I did take care of what I hear is a huge issue at PAX (phone battery life) by buying a ZAGGSparq 2.0. It seems to work well, but I won’t really know until I get there. I also wanted to order some new shirts from ThinkGeek, but I don’t think they would arrive in time, nor should I really spend the money. I’d rather save it for things in Boston/at PAX.
Basically, I have entirely too much to do and too little time. But I know that once I’m on that plane on Thursday morning, things will get infinitely better.
