||Post RTX JournalI know I'm late to the party considering it's been 3 weeks since I've been in Austin for RTX 2014, but I had a blast. It is my second year as a Guardian, third year going, and it was one of the better ones. I was back in the store, which I do not have a problem with, considering that's what I used to for a living, Thanks to @Kitzune for being an awesome team lead, and the entire store team was awesome.|
I spent a week in Austin this year, and couldn't be happier for it. I got to try all sorts of local food: Torchy's Tacos; Double Dave's; Mighty Fine Burgers; etc. Bag Stuffing on Wednesday, 14 hours finishing the store on Thursday, and doing my best to make RTX awesome for everyone who came through the store Friday through Sunday. (not to mention evacuating everyone on Friday) I appreciate everyone who put up with my very stupid vamping while we waited for the credit card machine to work.
The highlight of my week was talking to all the staff at the end of RTX and all they could say was how awesome we as Guardians did and made their weekend run smoothly. Also, when I got to Geoff, I brought him an Altar of Pimps made of "Gold" (yellow Legos). He loved it so much, that he told me it was going in the office, and I just saw it in Go #39(towards the end). I'm so happy about this because I've always wondered what I could give the staff in return for everything they provide for entertainment, and I'm what you call artistically-challenged. So to see it in today's Go made me so happy.
This was also the year of catching up with taking pictures with the Staff I have been too afraid to ask to get a picture with. So, I'm happy now. I can't wait for RTX 2015. It has now become my yearly pilgrimage to Austin, and I can't wait to see everyone next year.
