I go to a lot of conferences, and while they were What I Needed when I was in high school, I feel like I’ve grown out of them already. There are ALWAYS things for me to learn, but so many workshops I find myself sitting there thinking, “yes, I know all of this.” and, what’s worse, is that I find myself getting annoyed at the “stupid questions people ask.” Particularly when I have known the answer to that “stupid” question for years. It’s not necessarily that I am sick of activism, that I think I’m better than others, or anything else. It’s that I’m burnt out.
But I still love conferences. I just want to go to conferences that aren’t political or activism focused.
My big problem? I don’t have a fucking clue where to start looking for those.
