This post is a LOT longer than I was anticipating…
Salt Lake Comic Con does two conventions a year. The main one usually takes place in September and is bigger and more intense. Whereas Fan Xperience usually takes place in the beginning of the year and more like “Comic Con Lite”. When people who have never been to a convention ask me which one to go to, I tell them FanX. It’s a bit less of an shock to the system.
This year during FanX was pretty light. I didn’t really plan anything and just kind of let things happen. Luckily, two of my very good friends were willing to pal around with me the whole time. There was two things I wanted to accomplish this con: Get through my photo-ops without pulling out my hair, and hit my 10,000 steps a day on my FitBit.Read More
It’s almost halfway through the month, but whatever. In addition to saying “Yes Please” to more things, I’m going to try and do things that push me a little out of my comfort zone. I’ve said before, I’m not a very adventurous kind of person. I usually have to grip onto the Gryffindor part of me pretty hard and convince myself that I can do whatever is out of that zone. I haven’t died yet, so I know that I can do it.
Last year I stepped out of this zone by participating in a crazy amount of 5ks (more on those for 2016 coming later this week). But this year I’m going to try and push it a little bit more.Starting with January. But January is mostly going to be about planning out my comfort zones and where they end.
January Goals: Work This Out
(FYI: It should be noted that any time I can use a High School Musical song to explain something, I will.)
Last week I talked about how excited I was to go to Salt Lake Comic Con this year. I had an ABSOLUTE blast. This year they seemed to be a bit more organized that I had heard about in the past, and I was actually really glad that the volunteers seemed to be able to answer questions more thoroughly than they had in the past. I didn’t get to nearly as many panels as I wanted to. I was standing in lines (for photo ops, autographs and the occasional panel) for about 70% of the time I was there.
I really should have written about this each day, but I was so tired by the end of each day I didn’t think I could get my fingers to move like that. I apologize for the lengthy-ness of this post.
I’m sorry I’ve been a little MIA this week. I blame my excitement for Salt Lake Comic Con starting TODAY!
This is Salt Lake Comic Con’s Third Year and has been growing like crazy each year. This will be my second time attending and I’m VERY excited. This con has had its fair share of growing pains (and then some), but I feel that each year they are trying to get things better and better.
This year I don’t think I’ll be doing any cosplay. It’s going to be a year of photo-ops for me and I don’t want to be in Cosplay for my pictures (I know. It’s a bit lame).
Though just because I won’t be dressing up, doesn’t mean I don’t want some pointers on what to do for Cosplay.Read More
This week’s 5 Fandom Friday topic is Five Times I Totally Fangirled. It doesn’t take a lot for me to fangirl. Being in the same state as someone (which I frequently am, because apparently Utah is a prime place to film stuff… who knew?) makes me squeal. So here are the stand out Fangirl moments for me.
