Greetings from Seattle!  I am not adjusting to the time zone, despite the 3 hours difference.  I was up bright and early at 5am, happy to be reunited with my luggage.  Ah yes, one of those adventurous trips where I’ve beaten my luggage to the destination.  At least it made it to the right hotel!  The Hyatt Regency Bellevue staff have been very accommodating and friendly, which also helps.

Last night, I started exploring the area with my friend James, and then we headed to the MSMVP event at the Microsoft Store in Bellevue Square. 

It was great to see some of my fellow MVPs that I only see a few times a year (but that I harass and tease on Twitter and Facebook much more often).  I ended up hanging out with some of the guys from Philly, New Jersey, and Virginia, in addition to hanging out with one of my closer friends from the Heartland district.  It was also great to finallu meet Marques Lyons, the organizer of the MSMVP events and a Zune MVP that I’ve kept in touch with on Twitter!

I cried a lot yesterday, from laughing so hard!  I love these guys… the things they set me up to say, and the things we set each other up for.  It’s hysterical!

I’m looking forward to the rest of the MVP Summit, where I’ll get to see more of my friends and make new friends as well.  While I like the content (that I cannot talk about), I really enjoy the networking as well.  This is truly a meeting of the minds, and it blows my mind away to be surrounded by such awesomeness.

I still am in awe of the path I’ve been on career-wise, and I have no idea where it’ll lead me.  But I’m definitely looking forward to wherever it’ll take me.  This has been a lot of fun so far, and the official pre-events haven’t even started yet!
