I don’t think I’ve mentioned this yet but this year there’s been an addition to my to-go cons. My brother’s been wanting to go to Anime Expo for a while now and we managed to convince my parents to take us (since we usually go roadtripping at least once in the summer).
They agreed and so we were planning to be in California for about two weeks. We’d be at the convention for all days and then after we’d go to Disney & Universal!!
Except that those plans were discarded recently…
My dad wasn’t able to take off so many days and he’d said the trip would be extremely expensive (he gave us this crazy number and we were all, are you sure?). Either way, it felt like we might not be going to Expo…
We’d already bought the con tickets during this holiday sale a few months back but the plane was about $350+ for each person and the hotel was $129+ per night (ouch!). I’d recently quit my job to focus on school and money was tight.
But then this heavenly being called Mom managed to convince my dad to pay for our plane and hotel costs for bailing on us last minute (saying it was 10xs cheaper than what he estimated we’d spend as a group if we’d gone).
He conceded and now it’s decided!
Plane ticket was paid.
Now I’m just looking for a (much cheaper) place to stay at. If there’s anyone that’s going to Anime Expo, we’re looking for roommates!! Haha
Someone told me that people use this cosplay website to find roommates so that’s where I’m looking!
Ah, the con is right around the corner! A month away
