On Thursday, I head to SXSW Interactive in Austin. And while I am incredibly excited to explore the city for the first time and to be immersed in new technologies, I have always hated packing. Because I refuse to bite the bullet and get it over with I am always left throwing weird combinations of clothes into my bag at the last minute. I think its high time for me to subscribe to the Didion way and create a list and adhere to it. I'll be skipping the cigarettes and switching the typewriter for my laptop.
