Blogher Hangover is Real

Most of us have been home a week and yet many of us aren’t over it.  I’ve seen more than one person talking about blogher hangover.

And I’m here to tell you, it’s real.

You might think “Well yeah,  WineJen and her glow stick skirt sparkled hard.

 Oh, yes.  We did.

But it’s more than that.

I’ve caught up on the sleep.

I’ve *finally* gained back that 4lbs I lost while starving in New York.

And yet?  It’s still there.

The loneliness.  The isolation.  The sadness about something so awesome being over.

It starts to creep up about the 2nd day you’re home.

Maybe part of it has to do with the location itself.  New York is high energy 24/7.

Maybe it has to do with the events you attend.  It’s not every day you have companies fling bags of stuff at you. Maybe it was the designer shoe buffet.  Or going to fancy parties at the Viacom building  and having an amazing view of Times Square.

But really, it’s none of that.  It’s the people.

That one who made you laugh.

That one you admire.

That one who inspired you.

That one who made you cry.

These people understand you.  Get you.  Forgive you for tweeting at the dinner table.

In the end the location was great, the event was nice, but it’s the people your heart aches for that takes some time to get over.

  1. I’m so glad you had fun! Considering coming next year. Timing’s a little bad, but I’d like to make it happen b/c the location is so good!

    BTW…you and your roomies do look amazing.

  2. I feel pretty much the same way when I get home from a week at Burning Man. We call it “decompression.” it takes a while to adjust to the default world…

  3. It really does sound so wonderful. It sounds like you have so many special people there. I am definitely going next year and hope that I will feel just as connected.

  4. Oh, I know.

    Feeling it this Sunday morning: all those awesome people, and none of them in this town.

    xo

    It’s also YOU, and what YOU bring to BlogHer, Jen.

    It’s how you make the people around you feel.

    • How is it that you always have the perfect thing to say? Now you? Are within driving distance. We must make this happen. I still have my wolf sweatshirt waiting.
