All Roads Lead to SDCC

21 Jul

Hello world! It is so nice to be here again- I have been all over the place, running like a chicken with its head cut off, trying to get myself mentally economically, and physically ready for the crazy… Tomorrow I’m heading to the whale’s vagina, in the immortal words of Ron Burgundy. In the throws of getting ready for SDCC I even gave my first step to becoming a mermaid and queen of the unicorns, I dyed my hair!

Let me tell you, guys: I am so darned excited, yet every couple of minutes I am crippled by a mix of doubt, nerves, and overwhelming anxiety. I cannot wait to go and I just want to do well- as you know I will be reporting for Bleeding Cool from there, so keep your eyes open. My main goal is to hit all those panels I picked for my itinerary, but I want to do it well and make them proud. It is my first time at SDCC and my first time traveling to the West Coast, so you can see why the mix of all those feelings hit me like a tidal wave every time I think about it. I actually don’t think it has hit me quite yet, the fact that I’ll be traveling-it might happen once I board that plain. That is when I will truly believe it is happening for real instead of just a really nice, and quite stressful, dream.

I am so looking forward to all the events, to meeting new people and making new friends. Feel free to hit me up over Twitter to let me know if you are coming, too!

The hardest part of this whole preparation time is dealing with the mini-freak out moments: finding tickets and not being able to buy them, so priced have gone up like crazy-each time making me raise my budget; finding a room to stay at during the convention time–thankfully I have Old Man Geek and a friend I made during NYCC when I volunteered as crew… (there is nothing like volunteering at a convention, I made so many amazing friends and acquaintances). But yeah, I’m happy each issue at hand has been resolved and I’m trying to keep myself in check and not stress out more than I should. Happy and excited.

I’m now sitting here, looking at my packed bags… all mostly done, just travel tomorrow and go 3 hours back in time. I guess I’m just being sort of masochistic,  trying to find things to stress over now that the heavy load is done. I just wish I could bring my family and friends with me. Aaaah, I want to scream and jump and get there already! Wish me luck, guys! ♡
