the con

So today I went to my workplace to book off next weekend because I'm going to Anime North. For the America bros that read my blog, anime north is as you suspect it to be. A con. Now before you rush me with hate comments about how terrible a person I am for going to this con, here me out. I first went to this con when I was in grade 10? I guess so that was a good 6 years ago and on top of that, I didn't go alone. I went with a couple of bros. Every year I went with the same bros and we had a blast. Just recently we started to go all 3 days so it isn't really that bad if you find people to go with and stay away from the crazy "glompers" and other freaks that attend it. Usually our day consists of walking around the dealer's room for a couple of hours buying the things that you wouldn't be able to buy online without paying a premium and just being pretty laid back. We also like to go into the panels and watch the anime that are deemed by anime north as "the latest anime" and "straight from japan" even though the shows they show are from a good couple of seasons ago. We always have a good laugh from those. Then we go back to the dealer's room for more stuff and then end our evening with going to Swiss Chalet. If you are close to a con in your area, give it a try. I hope that you'll have a good time. As long as you go with people and stay away from the people that clearly say that they're crazy.

The god of thunder

So yesterday, a couple of my high school friends decided to drag me out of my dwellings to go see a movie. That movie was Thor. Since it was a Tuesday, we got the tickets for about 12 bucks which wasn't all that bad. We went to go see the movie in an AVX theater in 3D, and what was really awesome about the AVX theater was that the seats were leather and they reclined. Holy shit, they were so comfy! Movie theaters should just replace all of their seats with those because that was the most comfortable I've ever been in a movie. As for the movie itself, it's been a while since I went to the movie theaters so It was good. I give the movie a 8/10 but the thing that I was disappointed with was the 3D. It could've been alot better. Personally, if the movie wasn't half off yesterday, I wouldn't have gone. It was a good movie, but not worth the full price.

Pain, Pain everywhere

I knew it was going to happen someday, but I didn't expect it to happen to me so quickly.  All I gotta say is that wisdom teeth sucks. I've been awake for three days straight thanks to this stupid thing growing in. The tooth is throbbing, my gums are swollen and I feel like shit. The worse part is that I can't get it removed because my school health insurance is finished and my family isn't that kind enough to pay the full cost of it.  I'm not looking forward to going to work tomorrow not being able to talk.
