Figured it's been long enough since the last one...
Well this year didn't start off the way I wanted it to...something came up that put me in a pretty dark place. Not gonna say what, but it haunted my every waking moment since then until earlier this month. Thank goodness for that!
So far this year's events include a weekend trip working for #drawponies
in Portland, OR at Wizard World Comic Con, booking numerous guests for this year's Running of the Leaves Con in Denver, spending a weekend out in the San Francisco Bay Area for BABS Con and storm chasing down in the Texas Panhandle (yes I did see what I'm 99.9% was a tornado, no I didn't manage any good photos of it
My 23rd birthday is rapidly approaching (goddamn do I feel old) and...meh? I'm not expecting much, as the few things I truly want either cannot be bought or are unreasonable to ask for on such an occasion. Suffice it to say I did just buy myself a VIP ticket to see Kamelot in Denver on the 18th of May, which is not quite on my birthday but close enough and they're a group I've been wanting to see for awhile now.
I also really want to get serious about losing weight and getting back to where I was before college...but the biggest hurdle I've run into each time I begin is just keeping to those first few steps...I need to really get a lock on my self control (or lack thereof) if I'm gonna do this (ie. no more fast food, no more soda, no more junk...).
Don't really have anything big planned just yet, though I'm gonna see if I can afford a few extra days off work to go visit my aging grandparents in Oklahoma...they're not doing so hot unfortunately but I'm still having a hard time justifying spending a few hundred dollars and missing a week's worth of work to visit them. Would be easier if money wasn't as big of an issue...
