By no exaggeration, this has been the best RTX yet.
This was my second year as a Guardian on the Tech Team and third year going to RTX in general. I was having so much fun day in and day out, whether we were working or just hanging out. Helping set up RT Games, running the Ballroom D streams, discovering Austin's bars now that I'm 21 and more of the restaurants...it was all fantastic.
It was just so fantastic reconnecting with old friends and making new ones and I just loved it so much. I love that coming to Austin and RTX feels like coming home and you're picking up right where you left off with your friends even if you haven't seen them all year. I love that when we went out, we could just talk to other attendees or guardians, you'd see someone in RT Merch and it was like "Hey! What's up!" instead of what I'm used to normally, which is pretty much avoiding conversation with people when I'm out.
I'm at a loss because I feel like there's so much I want to say but I can't seem to find the right words to say them. It was just incredible. I'm so grateful for this community. I'm so grateful for my friends. I'm so grateful for our Tech Team. I'm so grateful for our Lead Guardians. I'm so grateful that I had this opportunity to have so much fun while contributing to a mind blowing event.
Now that I'm home, I'm missing it all terribly, my friends, the experience...
Words don't do my thoughts and feelings justice. But I will say this:
I can't wait for RTX 2019.
