NYCC '14 is less then 12 hours. Part of me is really excited. Part of me is dreading it.
The part of me that's excited is because I'll get to see some cool cosplay, hang out with friends I haven't seen in a while, find out what's new and exciting in comics, video games and other entertainment and, quite simply, to have a few days off from work.
The part of me that's dreading it is my little know agoraphobia when surrounded by a lot of people. I'm afraid I'll start having a panic attack, as I did when I went to the San Gennaro Feast a while back. I'm usually good in crowds when I have a distraction (such as a band on a stage) or if I have friends to focus on. Last time I went to NYCC, I went with friends and they were great in helping me to keep my focus away from the crowds. This year, I'm showing up alone with the rest of them meeting me later in the day. So, it should be slightly traumatic, to say the least.
But I'm going anyway. It should be fun (or at least I hope). But this is also my last year of going to this. I think it's better I start to travel to places I've always wanted to go to. And, starting in April when a few of my major bills will be gone once and for all, I'm going to look into that. I've been thinking about Las Vegas, but I don't gamble. I was thinking about Paris, Tokyo or Shanghai, but I'm sure being an English only speaking person may cause some issues. Perhaps Ireland or Australia, if I can get over the fear of seeing bugs the size of my car.
This just became a blog/journal/diary entry. My apologies. I very, very rarely type this much and this randomly. I must be tired...
