Wow, what a great 4 days. Couldn’t have asked for a better 21st birthday celebration.
Thursday: had the chance to see a few panels. The show Reign was the one I wanted to see initially, but before that I saw the panels for 24, Under the Dome, and a new show called Scorpion. We went and walked around the exhibit hall where we ran into Ne-yo and Zachary Levi. Looked around Nerd HQ and checked out their party. Later that day, I attended the Mtv fanfest. That’s when everything became crazy. Managed to be right up to the barricade near the stage. There I saw: Channing Tatum, Diego Luna, Natalie Dormer, Nikolaj Coster Waldau, Chloe Grace Moretz, Steven Yeun, the cast of Teen Wolf, Orlando Jones, a rapper named G eaZy(who after he performed hit me in the face with a drumstick, but I forgive him since it didn’t leave a mark) and Linkin Park. This show aired on MTV.
Friday: today was all about the panels. Had the opportunity to sit in for The Legend of Korra, Bones, entertainment weekly leading men panel that included Freddy Highmore, Theo Rossi, Brandon Thwaites, Tom Mison, and Jon Bernthal. After we sat in for the Agents of Shield panel where they introduced their new spin off Agent Carter. Then came what we were waiting for, The Originals! Paul Wesley made a cameo. Since I was a part of the volunteer group, I had to go to my post where I ran into Linda Blair! After this we went home and had some drinks.
Saturday: waking up with a bit of a hangover, we managed to drag ourselves to the con. We sat in for the Grimm and The vampire Diaries panels. We walked around the exhibit hall for a bit and realized Chris Hemsworth was trying to make his way past a crowd. After we went to the club and danced where I ordered my first legal drink.
Sunday: sad to leave, we went and walked around the exhibit hall one last time and received a bunch of free stuff.
Overall, I’m glad I spent these days with some great people I get to call friends. p.s. Had the most amazing burritos I have ever had at Sarita’s.
