In the case of the former, I'll get as many shots as I can of whatever I am able for the Matsuri today (my first time ever getting to that) as well as Friday and Saturday only; it must be this way as my mother needs to be home around a certain time on Sunday due to her arrangements as co-POA for her elderly mother. I can do nothing about that. But what I can do is see to it that next year — which is Otakon's final year in Baltimore — I will be present from start to finish, including the likely tearful closing ceremonies. If that means I have to go it alone, then so be it. From 2017 onwards, Otakon will move to Washington, D.C. and Baltimore will need to WORK to get money, resources and plans to expand the BCC as it stands and bring its connectivity for WiFi saturation and cell coverage to much better standards OR demolish and rebuild to new standards plus the expansion that's needed. Let me tell you, I'm going to miss seeing the Ice Cold Water Guy who has practically become an honorary member of the Otakon family. I can certainly find other reasons to visit Baltimore when the convention's moved away from the city, so this won't be my farewell to the city as it stands.
In the case of the latter, I will be back in time for the first runs on the Summer Games Done Quick marathon stream given that my mother and I will be leaving early Sunday morning. Not that I am most particularly thrilled for the first few, but some of the things in the early night are what have my interest plus the Tetris TGM Exhibition is the day following, which everyone should watch.
I'll have fun at the former and then get ready to segment my sleep schedule for the latter and what runs I want to watch the most.
