I bought a gold ticket, for more than I wanted to pay for a gold ticket, but whatever. I'm sure if I had waited, I could have gotten one for really cheap right before the convention when everyone who is still trying to sell at full price starts getting super desperate to make at least SOME money back... but, as per usual, I got anxious about not having a ticket, because I really want to go! So, yeah... ticket, yay!
I think this is the last year that I will be going on a gold ticket. Actually, this might be the last year that I'll go period. We'll see. I'm getting pretty bored with life, so changes might be afoot. You can only skirt the poverty line in the most expensive city in the country for so long before you start thinking "maybe I should make some changes..." It might be time to skirt the poverty line in a less expensive city, for instance.
Anyway, this will be my fifth convention and my fourth time on a gold ticket... and that's an amazing run for anyone. So, if I'm still in Vancouver next year, I'll probably either skip the con entirely, or just go with GA or preferred tickets.
As usual, I'll be writing reports for everyone who cares to read them! I'll try to make them marvelous and go out with a bang. ;)
