Managed to get tickets to every nerd’s dream this summer, the one, the only, San Diego Comic-Con!  I stayed at my aunt’s house, but met up with college friends Allegra, Tessa, and Steven for so major adventures.

Wandering the convention!

We took a lot of silly photos and checked out the Gotham Zipline, giant Homer head, cosplayers, and much more.

Nerd HQ! (which I helped fund)

For those of you who don’t know, Nerd HQ is a hangout spot anyone can attend in Petco Park, and is separate from Comic-Con.  Tickets to the panels cost money, but it all goes to Operation Smile (a charity).

Meeting Markiplier!

Now this one was actually completely by accident.  Allegra and I were walking by Keenspot, which is actually a webcomics booth, when suddenly we noticed a familiar online face.  Lo and behold, Markiplier was standing alone, and we got a chance to talk to him and get some great photos.

Geek and Sundry Vloggers

Finally, right before Allegra had to leave we ran into some Geek and Sundry vloggers (who I had actually never met in person despite watching all their videos and running their data), and it was great to finally talk to them irl.  I can’t wait to go again next year, and I’m excited to see who else I meet!
