I did it — after having reserved my plane tickets two weeks ago (cancellable via JetBlue, so I could chicken out if I wanted to), I finally felt confident enough that I won't be missing anything crucial over the weekend of SxSW that I... swallowed hard and registered for the conference.
I'm ridiculously excited. There're a few things I'm missing (plus I just found out, the weekend afterwards is not only super busy with some extracurricular activities, Barcamp Boston2 is also taking place at MIT) in order to be in Austin, but hopefully it'll all be worth it in the end.
On another Silly Excited Christine note, my business cards came in the mail today... or "identity cards," being that I'm still only a student. My first chance to give them out might actually be SxSW — how exciting! :D
