Until Next Time …

The colorful chaos of a convention, the exhilarating panels, and the laughter shared with newfound friends—post-con depression is a sentiment many attendees can relate to. As the convention doors close and reality beckons, a sense of longing for the good times and the bittersweet farewells to friends can cast a shadow on the post-con experience.

One of the most challenging aspects of post-con depression is bidding farewell to the friends made during the event. The camaraderie forged in the convention halls creates a unique bond that is difficult to replicate in the mundane routine. The prospect of returning to separate lives can be emotionally taxing, leaving a void that seems challenging to fill.

However, amidst the melancholy, it’s essential to remember that the end of one convention marks the beginning of the countdown to the next. The beauty of the convention community lies in its cyclical nature—there is always another event on the horizon, promising new adventures, shared laughs, and the chance to create more cherished memories.
