Losing It: Con Virginity and How Losing Mine Changed Me for the Better

It was 31 October 2014. My younger brother and I were in the middle of our college years. No real activities outside of classes and friends, mostly staying in at home.

Our mom… Continue reading Losing It: Con Virginity and How Losing Mine Changed Me for the Better

Celebrity Panels: Yay or Nay?

Celebrity panels are one of my favorite things about going to cons. Seeing celebs in real time, fielding questions from random fans, and telling stories.... I just can't get enough of it.
