Remy After Dark – Day 0

It’s a piiiiinch.

I’ve been sitting in my car alone in a parking lot that doesn’t allow overnight parking for the last 7 hours. Some of the hours were spent asleep. Other hours were spent in the driver’s seat, letting my car idle so my phone can charge.

During the last 24 hours (starting from waking up at 6 yesterday) I haven’t eaten besides a Chicken Tater Melt “sandwich,” a Subway cookie, and a bag of Japanese potato chips (Japanese seaweed and salt).

Why am I in such a questionable position?

Well, I was almost late to my interview with a singer duo in a hotel, which took place at 5 pm.

Before entering the interview room, I found out that I didn’t pick up my tickets for Anisong World Matsuri. Good going.

After I was done with the interview (they were amazing, by the way) and was halfway back to the convention center, I realized I left my bag back in the hotel. Said bag had all my portable chargers and cable chargers. My phone was already on the verge of death and I had no time to double back before the Japan Kawaii Live. Nice!

I did pick up my tickets and I did enjoy the show tremendously. Almost ended up dying several times, too, due to desperate driving and almost running into the pathway of a car. But now I’m waiting until 8 am so I can head back to the hotel and pick up my bag. And then I’ll have to pay another 25 dollars for parking. That will be 75 dollars down the drain and the con hasn’t even started yet.

Haven’t showered either.

Still, I’m excited. So excited. I get to do another interview and attend another concert. Sometimes work is actually fun!

That’s all that is notable for day 1. Excluding the fact that I stood in line for over an hour to buy 2 CDs and a backpack.

On the bright side, I was able to catch up on everyone’s blog posts! Save a few that I will tackle later tonight…

  1. Ah, so this is what you meant. It really does sound like your first day could have gone better. But hey, you still seem to be in good spirits and that’s great. Hope you have fun and no more rough spots.

    1. Yeah it wasn’t the best but it also wasn’t the worst. I originally was more put out when I drafted this but I just told myself to endurr it and it didn’t seem as bad afterwards.

      Today was more successful in that regard but it had a few (minor) mishaps. Expect another report.

  2. Hope the rest of this goes better for you, Remy. I’m glad that this experience hasn’t killed your mood though, and that you’re still excited for the con.

    Maybe keep a checklist of your stuff as you move from place to place, or at least when you leave the hotel for the day, yeah?

    1. I expect (and received) more chaotic developments. Thank you, though. I have to admit that I was feeling dejected but I just told myself that I just needed to hang on.

      Ahhh that’s a good idea.

  3. Bwahahaha! The first part reminded me of a typical comedy Anime/Manga/LN!

    I suppose great stuff happens when 2D is involved. Good luck in surviving that exciting journey, in the meanwhile… I’m returning in fetal-Shinji-like position because of lack of events such as AX (or at least, entirely focused on AMLNVN, sorry but I’m not a fan of comics that aren’t Manga) here: you say “Anime” and they think of Souls (or worse, that you’re a priest and trying to convert them to Christianity) here…

  4. Ah, that brings back memories! Spent the night of my first SF con, seven of us sleeping in a VW Rabbit. Yes, seven. In a compact car. What can I say? We were in high school and well, we did crazy stuff for fandom all the time.

  5. Seems like you’ve had a bit of a rough time running around but at least everything was worth it since it sounds like you had a blast (Aside from the mishaps of course)! :’)

    Is it bad that I laughed whilst reading this? 😮

I-it's not like I want you to leave a comment or anything. B-baka.
