Okay wow I haven't made a journal entry since last year's trip to Anime Detroit so why not let's do this.
Godaiko was just as awkward and empty as it was last year which is still really surreal because I remember Youma 2007 at that same hotel so vividly. It was crammed at all hours of the night with people, a group of 30 cosplayers out on the lawn playing red rover in the dark, people whooping from the balconies. At godaiko it's like, "oops, it's 8:30, halls are deserted, time to go home."
Met some homestickers and they were all pretty cool once I got past my crippling social phobias (legit CRYING IN THE BATHROOM while Alisa is, "I do not understand why we're not over there talking to the Homestucks," because I do not have the stones to walk up to someone and be like "hey I see you like x, me too, let's talk about it." We ended up bribing them with baked goods I guess. There is something seriously wrong with me when I am terrified of people half my age for no conceivable reason. I'm sorry if I came off as a creeper. You are all just way too cool and I cannot handle all that cool.)
Also we accidentally ended up spending all our money and have ended up making $10 stretch for like three days. What is it about cons that make my smart money spending senses fly out the window. YES I will pay $10 plus tax for a one inch tall piece of plastic in a blind box. Actually, I'll take three.
We'll be going to youma in november (AND COSPLAYING I feel this will make it easier to talk to people maybe?) even though we have not registered and we do not have a room and are basically flying by the seat of our pants yesssssss.
