ButSo its finally over. Comic Con 2012. SDCC. Its not only hours till I take Amber to the airport so she can catch her flight back home to poop way to far from me Indiana (hint, Amber freaking move here already) My best friend of 7 years come to visit me while I went to Comic Con and showed her around LA a bit. We met working a crappy office job together years ago, but just goes to show you, out of everything seemingly terrible something even better emerges.
This year was the first Comic Con I have actually worked. My second time going though. Its amazing seeing how much my life has changed, improved, and the comfort i feel with myself compared to even a year ago. Im cruising along the right course and feeling great about where things are going, even the unknown.
I got to spend a fun long weekend with my Machinima people whom i love ^_^ We stayed on Coronodo Island, which was a bit of a trek to the actual convention center, but with this being my view from the window i cant complain one bit. We filmed a ton of fun segments, as you can see below.
I met the Ancient Aliens guy!
And Sanity Not Included was shown on the Machinima Panel! Which I voice Nina ^_^
The First day Amber and I wore this adorable aprons i got off Etsy from Darling Amy I did a Skyrim inspired one and Amber did a Zelda one and we carried minecraft weapons. Actually made it on a few cosplay sites i saw too.
But over all Comic Con was one of the best experiences of my life this year. I got to have my best friend and experience everything with her. I also felt really accomplished in what i’ve been working so hard on. I had a friend who’s watched my transition tell me that I have really done well carving a niche out for myself and doing very well. Its so hard to tell sometimes if things are going the right direction because what direction is right? I suppose? Its hard to gauge success in a non traditional path, but after this weekend I really feel things are going exactly the way they are supposed to and im just going to keep doing what i’m doing and enjoy.
Thank you all <3
Then Amber and I enjoyed two days of LA before she went home. We beached it, ate it, and smoked it. ha.
And now a week I cant even put in to words has ended. And I am a very happy person. How can you not when it ends with a smile on your face, a smoke in your hand, and an open ocean at your feet.
