Finally went to my first ACen yesterday. Dropped about 200$ on P3, P4 and other miscellaneous items.
It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be as most my friends that used to go refuse. Met some cool people that I enjoyed talking to, got some good manga recommendations and a lot of price cuts just for being so polite in a sea of pushy people.
However a lot of the volunteers were just as inept as one would think, so I might volunteer next year as I am a sperg whisperer. Getting into the convention was the most disorganized mess I’d ever seen and Andy and I ended up having to help out any way so might as well.
There was a femExcalibur! and an awesomely well done gladOS cosplay and she was walking around with a George Bush portrait.
So yeah, it was fun. Good first con.
Furries aren’t as scary as long as you just pretend its Will Wheaton underneath those giant furry heads.
Stayed home from class to finish Bioshock Infinite. Worth it. Had me nostalgia’ing so hard. Bioshock was my first fps and was the reason I bought an xbox back in ye old high school so it was a nice treat. Especially after Bioshock 2 had me feeling like the series physically assaulted me.
All of the above is why my system shock fan boy friends hate me
Exhausted, but I got Archer Live tickets tonight so the struggle continues. Tomorrow I’m going to my first ever Fermilab severe weather seminar and I’ll be seeing Tom Skilling irl for the first time since I was a youngling. People love ragging on the guy, but he’s the whole reason I got into atmospheric science and thus computer science and all that. I wrote him letters back when I wrote letters to the Backstreet Boys. So yes, excellent weekend ahead which is great because I had a shit week carrying multiple teams on my back which hurt my performance on a math test and as a math minor that is quite the bummer.
I also finally gave into Brittany and Namu and made myself an instagram account, and since occasionally people read my text posts I thought I’d post a link: http://instagram.com/fat_apollo
Attempt to organize a list of (released) games I need to purchase:
Because my amazon wishlist is a disorganized list of pipe dreams:

Atelier series (ps3)
Atelier Iris 2 and 3
Persona 2 (Retail, psp)
