Just summarized last weekend in a.p - don't feel like copying it into here - but I had a thought that I hope to remember for the future.

It was a good con, but... I suspect that I need to be avoiding doing weekend- (or long-weekend!) long social things from about Jan 15th 'till end of Feb/beginning of March every year. I sort of knew this, of course, and I think that something that is a weekend _including_ Jan 15th is probably fine, but I'd never run into it quite so dramatically before now. I tend to not have anything which is strong enough a pull to have ever _tried_ to be so very social this time of year before. And no, I don't think Arisia would have been better. In fact, it might have been worse, since it's a much larger con.

I just _don't_ have enough energy for a highly social weekend during that time period (on the plus side, had it been a previous year minus SAM-e, I would probably not even have enjoyed it), although perhaps a very small group thing would be an exception. No matter how much I enjoyed the people in question, it's just too damn costly for me to be that social this time of year. And, while it's true I'd been entirely too social for 1.5 weeks before the con, I'm not sure that it would have made that much of a difference even had I not been.

*shakes head* Gotta wonder how much of this past weekend I spent just this side of too over-stim'd to cope, as the line moves around depending on how much I have to do, and I did not _have_ to do anything (and I _still_ spent an awful lot of time hiding in my room). And I'm certainly not as dramatically anti-everyone as I was yesterday (didn't matter who said what to me, I wanted to snap at _everything_), but I'm still fairly drained.

Meh. Stupid brain chemistry up-fuckedness.
