I have to admit, life has been pretty darn busy lately. That’s part of the reason why I have not posted in a while. I’m at that part of my career path where my writing has to take a temporary back seat. But the light at the end of the tunnel is getting larger and as far as I can tell, it’s not a train coming after me.
At the same time, I plan on doing something a bit different this weekend. Normally, my weekends are consumed my the typical work around the house. You know – the things that didn’t get done throughout the week. But this weekend will be a bit different. I am doing what I can to head out to the Indy Disney Meet (Link) to hang out with a bunch of awesome Disney fans.
Now, what makes this different for me? I’ve never had the chance or timing to take part in this type of Disney fan meetup. I mean, I know that this meet has been going on for several years now, and I have always wanted to give it a try. Maybe I thought that Indy was just a bit far away to do a day trip or something like that. Well, considering that my daughter lives there now and we do the drive so often and it’s not much more than a commute for us now, I think this is the perfect time to give this a shot. After all, the last large Disney fan meet that I’ve been to was like MouseFest in 2008 and maybe a meet and greet with Lou Mongello. So, I think I am overdue.
Why am I taking time to even mention this? Well, I think a lot of what I do is about relationships. It’s about meeting people and talking and sharing something that we have in common. And to be honest, I know that not everyone understands how people can really love Disney as much as some do. That’s OK. I don’t understand why some people do a lot of things, but I still admire their passion for them. But for those that share that common bond that is Disney, I think it’s great to meet up and really get to network in a way that I think only Disney fans can. This may be my first time going… but I anticipate that it won’t be my last.
I’m really sincerely looking forward to this event. I hope to post pictures and commentary shortly after. Check out the Instagram feed to the right for pics from the event as it happens!
Have a great day!
