Experience is the sinking feeling that you've made this mistake before.

Well I think I have recovered from my first anime convention. It was everything I was expecting it to be and more. The whole time I felt like a complete geek and I loved it! By Monday my voice was very sore for work from all the screaming I did the whole weekend. I was very excited to have my friend stay over, it was nice to catch up even though I felt like I talked way too much.
We've already got plans for next year. lucky for us it's going to be about 15-20 mins away instead of 45 mins. so we can easily drive there and it has a lot of places to eat instead of just a couple. We've all decided that we are going to dress up as characters from Final Fantasy 7 with me being Tifa.
Now while i tried to take pictures and videos it didn't turn out so well... in order to take video I had to hold my hand way above my head in order to get a clear picture and so it shakes really bad. The sound is horrible and the picture is very fuzzy. Also some were cut off because I ran out of memory space, so that sucked.
So the only thing that I can leave you is this video i saw while i was at the con. It won "Best in Show" in the anime music video contest and I fell in love with it.

(I don't own it >.>)

Stress, School, and Stupid

My work here is totally not done...

I'm stressed about the convention my sister and I are going to.
I'm worried that she won't have a way to get there because I'll be heading there before her.
I'm worried that I will mess everything up with my friend who I haven't seen in forever.
I'm worried that I won't have enough money at the end of this thing to pay for school.
I feel bad because I didn't get my head in the game soon enough so I couldn't buy the costumes that I promised my sister.
I have to take a test for one of my classes before tonight or I'm screwed.
I don't know if i'm ready for the test anyway.
Right after school gets out I have to head to work to do a midnight so my co-worker who has school the next day doesn't have to.
I have to get up early the next morning so I can meet up with my friends to ride the train.
I have to write a Process essay by Tuesday inbetween going to the con and work monday.
I'm working basically the whole week except for the days I have school.
And I don't get paid till almost 2 weeks after the con which doesn't help because I'm missing a full weekend anyway so it won't be as much.

*deep breath*

Okay enough of that.

Here is what I do know:

I am really excited to go to this con, we've been planning it for months.
Either I'll come back and get my sister or she'll ride with her friends.
Not only am I meeting with my friend but she is sleeping over as well.
Using my l33t accounting skills I've hopefully worked everything out so I will still have money for my tuition payment and gas for the car.
We've decided to save our money and next year we are dressing up and we want to stay at the hotel where the con is too.
I'm only working 4 hours at most and I have a feeling this midnight will be a bust anyway so no big deal.
I don't have another tuition payment for the rest of the year after this one so whatever money i get from this next paycheck will go to building my account back up.
Work is work and since we hired 8 new people i can use all the work i can get.
I might even get to train a newbie on a till.
The essay is going to be "How to Survive an Anime Convention" so it all works out.
I should do okay on the test because I've learned about europe over and over again.

speak of tests... i should go take that test now.
