Looking over the schedule and the events that were laid out my head begin to swirl; I wanted to do it all, to experience SXSW in it’s fullest. My first day I was like a tourist in a foreign land, there was so much going on it was hard to choose a starting point, luckily I had some experienced people guiding me the first couple of days. By the second day I felt like an expert, maneuvering the bus rides to fit the schedule of events I wanted to do, I spent the week taking in this awesome event called SXSW, eating junk food, getting very little sleep, and loving every single moment of my first time. I am both excited but sad about next year, excited to go again but sad that I will never again be able to view it through a first timer’s eyes. This was one of my favorite things I have done in my life thus far, I am stoked for next year for sure.
