It's mid-January already but I suppose it's not too late to greet everyone a Happy New Year! It's been a funs start for me so far and from the looks of things, this year is set to be more hectic and more fun than last year was.
To all the people from Perth, just letting you guys know that I will be coming over there for Wai-Con! I've wanted to go there since the very first year it was held but the fact that it happened around this time of the year meant that I was often too broke from the Christmas spendings to contemplate the trip. I'm still broke but at least the plane tickets weren't too expensive. Wai-Con's always had a special place in my heart for being the first convention that I've ever won an AMV award from; I remember sitting around till the wee hours of the morning stalking the forums and hoping for someone to make an announcement online, screaming silently when someone finally broke the news (didn't want to wake up the house). I think if I never got this shot of confidence from winning I probably wouldn't have been as involved or successful in this hobby as I'd become down the years. Since then I've made some friends on that side of the country that I would dearly love to visit so I'm actually quite excited about this.
Then in March, I'm more or less guaranteed to attend the Adelaide Oz Comicon. Richard Dean Anderson is appearing as a guest and there's no way in hell that I was going to let this opportunity to get an autograph pass. I was under the impression that he has pretty much left the public scene and that I was never going to be able to finish my Stargate SG1 collection. Yeah… this is awesome.
Around the middle of the year, I'm very hopeful of attending WCS championship to support cielroses and k-tetsu. This will probably mean that I miss out on SMASH this year since that occurs pretty much the weekend after it but I guess I'll just have to make do with being in Japan instead!
So yes, it's a year that seems to become dominated but yet again more travelling. It's set to keep me busy with photography too so hopefully I'll be releasing some personal projects soon!
