In just a couple of weeks, some of the world’s most influential people will flock to Los Angeles for #BlogHer16. Whenever you get a bunch of social media folks in one place, you can expect to see a lot of tweeting, snapping, and posting. Every moment is an opportunity to get a good picture or video.

I hate packing, but even more I hate unpacking. I hate the zillions of pieces of paper that I'm pretty sure are important. I hate losing receipts. I hate worrying my car will break down on the way home from the airport because my phone is totally dead. Do you hate these things?
