Celebrating their final year, Con-G was held in Guelph this past weekend, and it turned out pretty good. It was a lot more quiet than I was expecting, but staff and everyone was still very friendly which is something I admire about this convention.
I stayed entirely low key the whole time, so many things went awry in planning that I was just stressed, soooo stressed. So just being able to hang out with my good friend and play pokemon (with my old school gameboy, yush!) was pretty great. I was completely anti-social, so I apologize for not going out and finding some people there, and I'm grateful for those who came to say hi to pull me out of my shell. (Big thanks to Liana, Gabby & Anthony for sticking around and chatting lots, you guys are awesome~)
Some highlights, was the iaido demonstration panel (I was hoping to see their Sensei who was unfortunately away, because a student of our branch knew him well). It was pretty lighthearted, and some good humour added in to keep it enjoyable. Gave away some Nintendo swag again, so many happy faces. Was also able to watch the Olympic hockey game Sunday morning (Go Canada!) with other con attendees & staff members, which I thought I would miss. Lots of Pokemon, sooo much pokemon, and battles using a link cable, haha. Being stuck in an elevator with Scott McNeil, I don't think this guy believes in normal situations, or lack of chances to make jokes in different voices. His panel was pretty awesome too. And of course, the best part, which was hanging out with friends that I don't normally get to see throughout the year. If there is anything I would miss about conventions, it would be them.
