Like many Drupal people, I started as a hobbyist who used Drupal for her own website. Around 2011, I discovered Drupalcon and cursed myself for not being able to go. Granted, at the time I was only passionate about the CMS, not the raving, module-writing lunatic I am now.
Back then, I felt much like I did in the bottom panel. Annoyed, angry, but mostly feeling like I was being left out. It wasn't until 2013 when I had a chance to go to Drupalcon Portland after being awarded a free ticket and copious help from family to pay for the travel costs. I was fortunate again to be awarded a scholarship to Drupalcon Austin and ran a successful crowdfund to pay for my travel costs.
Still, I never forgot what it was like to be that person in the bottom panel.
Watching Drupalcon Amsterdam happening from afar last week, I felt like I was missing a family gathering. This, despite the fact I'm a relatively new and unknown face. I reminded myself that one of my local Drupal colleagues was awarded a scholarship to attend. And while I wasn't going, it makes me smile that he finally got the chance.

This me after my first week of working at my new job. As you can imagine, I’m…still confused. What I used to do as a technical challenge in my off-time is now my job. This is going to take a while to get used to…
Yep, I’m still rocking that black cami.
