Busy Week

This week has been extremely busy so far, and it's about to get busier. I have 4 graduations to attend, 3 are in the family, and 2 of which is my neighbor's daughter and brother's later today. We have reservations tonight for dinner at P.F. Chang's in addition to a party-thing tomorrow with catered food, decorations, and cake. And you guys know my mom, everything in the house has to be museum-perfect and squeaky clean.

Still on the waitlist for summer classes. I really want to get into that Bio lab and Theater course. T-T

Aki's website is on its way to being completed. I just need to find a place to host it (for free). D: Any suggestions?

Anime Conji - Day 3 (Sunday)

And once again, woke up around 8:30. How the hell do I do that? D: I wanted sleeeep.
Morning brought the masquerade feedback panel, which ended up being a give-the-contestants-their-awards-and-prizes panel. O.o Which only one participant came and got theirs at. The rest had to pick theirs up at con-ops later.

Having done nearly everything I needed to do, I went to go see the Para Para workshop and found out they didn't come. So the cafe maids took over for an impromptu karaoke/dance thing for about an hour/hour and a half before cosplay chess took over the Pavilion. Ended up watching the anime rooms for 3 hours (even though they said an hour), and went to feedback session with the rest of the staff, then closing ceremonies.

Afterwards, I finally had the chance to jump in the pool and jacuzzi for a little bit, talked with people, went back up to the room to shower, and had pizza with the rest of the staff at the dead dog party. Ended up sleeping Sunday night in the con suite and going to school Monday. x.x 'Twas hell.

That's basically it for the con. Done. ><

Oh. And it's all Hector's fault.

Anime Conji - Day 2 (Saturday)

...Only to be RUDELY awakened by Lanae at about 8:30 AM (the rest of us going WTF, why'd you have to do that? DDD:<<<<) and a call from Di (Lyndsey's mom) down in programming ops that EvilBishounen was downstairs waiting me and apparently Reg can't find his badge (which I remember sticking his name on a badge). FML. x.x

I rushed over, tried to find his badge (yes, it was there), and rushed upstairs to take a shower before Greg opened the con-suite. Got changed, brushed my teeth, and it was off to go get Rebecca and another guest for the Masquerade 101 panel. Went well, fair turn-out considering the size of the con, and a couple press there too, which I had no clue how to handle.

While waiting for the first musician to arrive, I went around trying to get people to sign up for the masquerade last-minute (found out from Rebecca that there weren't many), and basically made a fool of myself. :D

Music Festival was okay, but I wasn't there for about half of the musicians' arrivals. >< But apparently it went well. Got to hang out with a couple before heading back to the masquerade room for the meeting, then to the Pavilion tent to set it all up for the masquerade! T-T

Oh my gosh, so much time, work, and stress went into this damn event. Note to con: invest in backdrop for press photos, for the hotel may not be able to provide tablecloths and duct tape next time. Masquerade went well, judging took a little bit more time than I thought and many more prizes were donated for the awards than needed. Awards were announced, and Pavilion got cleaned up for the 21+ Rum Party. The "Gothic Lolita Ball" was all over the place for some reason. People's music tastes kept changing, and it was weird.

Meanwhile, the 21+ Pirate Rum Party apparently wasn't as fun as the all-ages. But they still had a good time nonetheless. I was back in the staff/guest lounge hanging out with everyone else trying to unwind and getting some edible substance in my system finally, and crashed again really late.
