After another long weekend of excitement and Chinese festivities, things are back to normal for me. However, my PC recently decided to finally give out on me. On the bright side, I had already ordered parts for a new PC. Overall, it has been a fairly good start to the year already. I’ve already attended GP Vancouver with puddi & D_S, and Sakura-con 2016 is just around the corner. Looks like the first half of 2016 will be a blast!
Last weekend, I headed down to a convention that I haven’t attended in years. Anime Evolution is a local anime convention here in Vancouver that has been running for years now. It took a break for a few years due to some issues that were unavoidable at the time. The event started in 2003 and ran until 2010 before it took a few years off to return again in 2012. I’m not exactly sure about the details surrounding why it stopped running, but the good news is that they’re running the event annually again. In the past it actually took place at Simon Fraser University (SFU), the institution I currently attend. However, for the past few years they have been running it over at University of British Columbia (UBC). The campus out there is beautiful in comparison to ours but is a ways away. Anyway, with all of the background information out of the way, I headed down for one out of three days of the convention due to some commitments I couldn’t miss.
