I totally had this dream last night where I asked you guys on DA what conventions you would suggest going to, and then I woke up and was all 'GOSH SO WEIRD' and once I had breakfast and coffee I started realizing this wasn't a bad idea.
Gee golly, thanks subconscious!!
Anyhow, I have a few cons already lined up in my mind, but I also wanted to expand my horizons and not just repeat the ones I did last year (plus I like seeing new places!). I am going to try to pick my cons very carefully and make a smart schedule this year (meaning err, 2011!) as last year I ended up doing everything last minute and being weirded out and sick the entire time (which sucked). So planning ahead for me this year!
What cons would you suggest? I am kind of looking for conventions in these regions (but am also open to anything):
Seattle, Chicago, New York <<(really need a con in New York cos of a friend, so help me out here! <33)
I know people have mentioned it several times that they'd like me to go to a con in Canada and England (you guys are so sweet!) and boy WOULD I LOVE TO but I am not sure next year I'll have the finances to do that, but we'll see! I imagine Canada is much easier to manage than England (though overseas, nnghhh sounds so lovely!) Life is surprising sometimes! Never know where you are in a year from now.
I still don't know how many cons I am going to. Five was pretty rough on me this year, but probably with some better planning I can avoid the mega-stress I put upon myself. Plus, I was practically a con virgin last year so I was constantly bewildered. Now I have some experience under my belt! But I realized that when I try to look up cons I don't even know what they're like and there's like a CON EVERYDAY SOMEWHERE, so I figured you guys know the convention scene better than me.
I mean, you have to. I don't know it at all! Thanks so much in advance for your help!!
