These past two weeks have been a lot, and it isn’t ending.
Hey friends and fangirls. It’s been a minute since I used this as a weekly journal, and I think that needs to change. So here we are!
Last year, I experienced my first real convention. I went to Leaky Con 2014 in Orlando, FL. And let me tell you, it was the happiest week of my life. I flew down by myself, shared a room with four friends, three of whom I’d only spoken to online, and made so many new friends I can’t even begin to count.
