I just found out this weekend I got accepted to USF Tampa for summer 2008. I will be attending all three days (can't beat an 1/2 hour commute compared to 4 1/2-5 in previous years). I'm very happy I can finally be more active in Metrocon activities this year. I'm certainly moving early so I can adjust well and leaving my job early to move.

Do you know what's sad? I'm actually considering a temporary relocation from PA to Tampa in order to audition for the Chess Match this year. XD

If I were to get in, I'd need to be there for rehearsals. My sister lives in the city, and can probably hook me up with some job/housing leads. I'll be month-to-month on my current apartment least by then, so I have nothing tying me down here.

(I know. I'm a sad, sad individual.)

Metro was a blast last year, and I'm really glad I decided to stop by and see the chess match while on vacation in FL.

Aleera- Congrats! Thats so great! You have to promise to atleast still visit down south for cons. I hope you do great in your new school!

So I'm gonna think of crazy schemes in order to raise money for cons in 2008. Thanks to christas comming up I can sell candy canes at school, woocha!! XD

I'd love to be apart of cosplay chess, but I know I couldn't make it to the reherals. It's bad enough I'll be taking the 6+ hour drive down there. x3

My plans right now seem to be

Alice [Shadow Hearts]
Kaoru [Rurouni Kenshin]
Utena [Revolutionary Girl Utena]
??? [Suprise costume]

Man, y'all have to stop making me want to bring Sweet! Due to constant costume changes and panels and stuff, I can't bring costumes that require body paint! D:

Two of my friends are bringing Earthy and Watery. <3

... ... maybe I'll find a card that doesn't require body paint. :3

I felt so bad for you at Janicon! I could only imagine how hot you were in that costume. =/

I'm in the process now of ripping the hoverbike fmv from the FF12 game and bonus disc, so I can make sure the auto-cad render for this thing is accurrate.

Oh man. Say goodbye to my wallet. XD
