Normally, Saturday would be the day I’m most excited for at a convention, since most of the good content occurs on Saturday. Sadly, that was the last thing on my mind when I got up at around 6AM in the morning. First things first, I had to head out to SFU Surrey to write my final exam. It started at 8:30AM, and I was done by around 10:45AM. With the exam out of the way, I took the Skytrain all the way down to Waterfront for the biggest day of the convention.
Day 1 or Friday for most conventions is usually the quietest of the three days. Some people still have work and/or school on the Friday and it seems to get busier as the day goes by. To make the most out of the convention, I got up at around 8AM in the morning to get some work done. At about 9AM, I went down to Burrard Station to pick up our final member Puddi, and brought him back to our hotel room. He was a bit tired and really hungry, so the next thing we did was go out and get some breakfast. If there’s one thing you have to do going out to a convention, it’s to make sure you’re well hydrated and well fed. It’s going to be a long week and you want to be able to enjoy it without feeling sick or hungry throughout.
It feels like our last convention wasn’t too long ago, and it really wasn’t. However, we were set on going to Anime Revolution this year due to a variety of factors. The first of which was the vast improvements they have made year after year. For a con that’s only heading into its fourth year, we were looking forward to an even bigger and better convention this year. Unlike previous years, I was set to have a blast and stay in a hotel near the convention center to maximize my time at the convention center and to remove the hassle of going back and forth from my home out to Waterfront.
