Squee Weekend  
Looks like I'm definitely heading out for Squee Weekend this year! This is entirely due to squidgiepdx, selenic76, and zoemathemata. Without them, affording the various necessities would have been nearly impossibly for me. I owe them greatly, fantastic people that they are. I'm super excited and a little scared, but I have no doubt once I'm there I'm going to have a blast :D

See how welcomed you are already! ^_^ I'm so happy about this that if I had a reaction gif I would use it! And it would probably be along the lines of 'It's so fluffy' :D

And you will do fine, I'm sure. I always worry about travelling, and usually unnecessarily. Like someone told me last year, airports are designed for the dummer than average people :D They were right too, it was hard to get lost, all you have to do is have your flight number ready, see where it boards, and follow the signs ^_^

Security checks weren't that difficult either, thanks to the advice I got from people who had travelled before. (like wear no belt, and pick comfy shoes that come off easy) Anything you need to know, ask us over at squee_in :)

Since I arrive earlier, I'll try to remember to hitch a ride with whoever comes to pick you up, and meet you at the airport :)
popkin16: ☂ by your side i'll make itpopkin16 on April 17th, 2014 12:04 am (UTC)
I do see, and it makes me feel very warm :)

Airports do tend to have signs that let you know where to go, but I'll be worried about getting lost or not finding my terminal in time to board the plane, or getting stopped in security....in all the times I've flown (which is not many), nothing like that has happened, but it still worries me :P

Yeah, I usually try and make sure everything metal I have is sitting out, so if it sets anything off it's right there for them to see. Like, my purse has these metal rings on int.

Thank you, I would appreciate you going with whomever arrives to pick me up :)

Woot! YAY! *Snoopy dances on your behalf*

I know, right? AHHHH so exciting :D
sgamadison: Be there for yousgamadison on April 17th, 2014 12:48 am (UTC)

And relax--everyone is nervous the first time. Two seconds after you walk through the door, you'll forget why you were ever nervous in the first place. :-)

I hope so :D I'm just so shy in real life - I don't anticipate talking much, but I will be feeling enthusiastic about all things~
sgamadison: Rodney's Doughnutsgamadison on April 17th, 2014 02:18 am (UTC)
Ah, but you will be among YOUR PEOPLE. :-)

Which will definitely put me at ease faster than I normally would be :P

It's definitely normal to be nervous, but I can tell you from personal experience that you'll feel at home in no time. You can talk if you want, or not talk if you don't want; what's important is that you're among friends who love SGA :-)

I can't wait to meet you!
popkin16: → trace you with my fingertipspopkin16 on April 23rd, 2014 01:41 am (UTC)
Thank you :) I might not talk much at first, but as I grow comfortable with everyone, I'm sure I'll start speaking up. But yes, oh man, I am so excited to be among a group of people that love SGA. Few of the friends I talk to regularly are as into it as I am, so this will be so amazing.

I can't wait to meet you too ♥

I *so* wish I was going, I'd so much love to be with people who have the same interests, and traveling? Yeah, it really is easy, but I hate flying. I always wanted to take a road trip with my youngest son, we travel together well, and have made a few short trips together, but I'd love to do a lengthy one, see more of America. I think I've crossed the country about 8 times with the husband during his career, but never just for fun *Sigh*
popkin16: → trace you with my fingertipspopkin16 on April 19th, 2014 05:27 am (UTC)
I wish you were going too *HUGS* It'd be fantastic to meet you. Yeah, my dad doesn't fly very well, so we drive everywhere. A road trip with your youngest son sounds like it has great potential for fun, though! You should definitely figure out the logistics of doing that :D

SO glad you're going to be able to make it! This is an absolutely lovely group of people, and you will be welcomed with open arms :-)

I am so very excited :D I can't wait to meet everyone. Everyone has been very welcoming so far, it's been absolutely lovely. I've not once for a moment felt unwelcome :D
