WPPI 2011 Platform Speaker Schedule

Something I can be obsessive about is organization, especially when it comes to trips.  I love being able to plan everything out ahead of time – I really hate the unknown.  In order to combat that, I try to be as prepared as possible for everything I can.

Earlier this week, I found out that I was going to be able to go to WPPI.  Within a couple of hours of this notification, my plane tickets were booked, brother employed to hang with my husband and my parent’s lined up to watch our daughter.  Upon this confirmation, I was ready to plan.  It was actually going to happen!

The WPPI site has more information then a first timer might know what to do with.  I knew when I would arrive and when I would leave, but had no clue what would be going on when I was there.  I wanted to know at least the basics of what I was going to be getting into!  So, I checked out the schedule.

I decided to create a more visual schedule that I could refer to through the trip.  It’s so much easier for me to figure out where I want to go with a visual road map!

And now, you can use it too!  If you are going to WPPI, download it here and you can plan your trip as well!

It’s starting to hit me that I’m going to be in Vegas soon and I may or may not be freaking out.  Do I bring the DSLR or not?  What do I bring to wear?  Who do I want to see?  Besides Leah of course! Will I recognize anyone? How many people will think I’m absolutely crazy?

Then I breathe deep and go back to doing what I was doing, secure in the fact that it will all be okay.

Are you an over planner?  Or do you go with the flow?

If you are going to WPPI, I’ll see you there!  I’ll be the 6′ tall girl who may or may not have her DSLR with her and may or may not be dressed….we’ll see if I can figure out what to pack….
