Hey, guys. Blue here. I have official returned back from Orlando attending my convention. I got so much to tell you!
This vacation was lots of fun this year. Five nights stay. It was nice that I was able to get away from the hassle at home and have some summer fun while it lasted during my time. I got to see some of my friends there and even hung out with them here and there. The space was large and I even attended some panels during my time and since I had supersponsor ranking, I attended a lunch on Saturday to be with the guests of honor and I even got to sit in the front rows for the opening and closing ceremonies since that's what you get when you have that type of badge. And the lines were even split into three to make it easier for us to get our badges faster, and we were called first to get our badges since I had supersponsor and those who had the sponsor rank or higher can get theirs first. I even bought myself a few new goodies at the Dealer's Den as well. That was very nice indeed.
Though. It was good and all, I have to admit that it just wasn't as great as last time. Here's what I mean.....
This year for the most part, was good. As I wanted it to be. Wednesday and Thursday, nothing bad happened. Just as I wanted to leave it at that. But on Friday morning, just before the opening ceremony begun to start off the convention, all that changed when I was warned by staff for something so disgusting that I don't even wanna get into. It's just so disturbing and I had to prove my innocence telling them that I never did such thing and it must have been someone that really either overexaggerated to the max or they did it for the sake of trolling me out of deep hatred. I was actually falsely accused! Just the idea really spooks me and I am actually still freaking out about it behind closed doors even to this day just thinking about it and it gives me the chills! And on Saturday evening, what happened was so dumb that it actually caused my privilege to the sponsor lounge to be revoked, even though I paid for it! Even my parents were enraged about this, especially with the false accusations! Eventually, things were all settled. But I still nearly got pulled over something that shouldn't really be considered problems. Again, I can't mention them publicly, as it would be used against me in the future. I never would have guessed that people nowadays get upset so easily these days so now I am forced to be more softer and lay low for the future and beyond and it's...heartbreaking to say the least. Though, it shouldn't be all bad though. Could have been worse. But it's still seriously dreadful that it happened nonetheless and it never happened with any other convention before prior. The good news is however is, there's still many people that are still by my side and would never think that I'd ever do such intended vile things like what they claim that I did. But I do agree that I need to improve on my social cues.
Sunday as the convention wrapped up, it was all good. Nothing bad happened and I was never called by staff at all. But I was still scared and had to lay low. Feeling a bit sick to my stomach and I felt it was slow. I didn't want to be kicked out of a con space that I enjoy going to, because it was the only place that I was only able to go to, and IS the only place I can ever go to that I'd have fun with. I just hope that these same incidents don't ever happen again next year. Because if it does, then I am gonna have to file a complaint or two, because I am not gonna deal with it. I go to have fun, not get into trouble. Man, 2018 has not been treating me well this year. They will be having it at a new hotel next year, as they also had a change. But the good news is, each room will be a suite! And it will give us a microwave oven, a stove, a refrigerator, a couch and either a king or two queen-sized beds! So much hype for that! It's gonna be a nicer hotel with three towers and it'll have much bigger space than ever before. One of the three towers will be entirely dedicated to the convention's attendees only, as part of the new venue. But...I just wish that next year will be better....It kinda breaks my heart that I was nearly pulled. And it's embarrassing. Though, I am considered OK for next year, I need to think about this. As much as I really wanna go back next year as I enjoy my time, I need to reconsider what has happened.
Although the con was mostly fun and good as mentioned before, those two incidents really hurt me deep down inside and the fact that I nearly got removed from the con space, was super scary. I wish that it will never happen again, next year when I go. There's lots of great people that I enjoy being with, and I would HATE to be removed. This is kinda wrong and I also wish the staff was a bit more lax. But not too lax to a point where irreplaceable damage would be caused.
Anyways, I will be around. That's the end of this journal. I'll go back to doing some art for you guys tomorrow. I know how much you like it when I do that. I'll be doing what I usually do. But I also got college at the end of this month. Hope to see you guys later.- Blue.
