For those of us that have demanding jobs, family obligations, and are in school it can be hard to find the time to play, let alone get prepped for a large scale con. I've spent the last few weeks scrambling to get things done between shifts and classes - modeling/painting, playing as many games as possible to get my army list down, and gathering tools to make games go more smoothly. This is my first con, so my to-do list is rather large. Did I mention I'm a flagrant procrastinator?
I have managed to fit a game or two a week in with my work and class schedule over the last month in order to learn the finer points of my list, and try new tactics against armies that continue to kick my butt. That just took some creative scheduling and convincing my body that sitting around after my shift was over wasn't an option. So far, so good on this - the one thing I like doing the most out of the whole list.
