Chicago Con 2008


So... I have no pics to post, 'cause I am anti-camera girl (I'm not actually against cameras, but I don't have one, and well, let's just say I kind of suck at photography), but I just felt the need to pop on here and give a breif recap of my first-ever Supernatural Convention.

Since I have nothing against which to compare this con, I have to say it pretty much freaking rocked.  It was great to put faces to the names of loads of people I've met online through TV.com and LJ, and to see again the Supernatural friends I've had the pleasure of meeting in the past.  I will definitely be trying to do another convention at some point in the not-too-distant-future. I'm not sure when, exactly, since my law student status makes money and time kind of tight, but I will go to another one (or two, or three, or ten)!

Some personal highlights for me:

  • Meeting Jared and Jensen (if only super briefly) after all this time
  • Learning that Samantha Smith is a sci-fi addict and a big fan of “Supernatural” herself
  • Hearing new stories about the crazy antics of Harley and Sadie
  • Alternatingly laughing my ass off and being profoundly impressed with all of the guests
  • Finally getting to hear Steve Carlson in concert

 Totally, totally awesome, loved it, and so glad that I went.

\o/ Good to hear you had fun. I think I might be a little jealous of you. I so wish I could go to one of those cons too, but seriously.. Flying to the US is just to expensive. *sadface* Anyway. Yay! for having fun. :D

I'm honestly a little still shell-shocked that I actually got to go to a convention! I don't live anywhere near where this convention was held so it took about a year of planning and saving to be able to go, but I'm really glad that I had the opportunity. Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting!!

Were you there too? I did a rather horrible job of meeting people because I was going around with a group of about 13 people I already knew from tv.com and LJ. And honestly, keeping track of and attempting to spend time with 13 people takes a *lot* of work (well, it does for me anyway). I am crazy tired/wired right now and have to go work on a presentation for my law school class on reparations that I am giving tomorrow and I don't think I've slept in a week. But I'm really glad I went to the Convention! I just wish I could afford the time/money to go all the time!
