Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday I have work 8-5:30 (MAKING BANK OHHHH YEEAHHH) and Wednesday night I have an eye appointment to get new glasses. But they won't be ready for like a week so I'll be wearing my lime green ones when I'm not wearing contacts.
I should probably pack...

Probably working through the week, perhaps even part of Thursday. Then I'll be picking up my boyfriend from downtown's Union Station and heading over across town to Rosemont to get our weekend badges. Gosh, this is really coming up fast and I'm missing so many parts of my Touko outfit.

I'll probably still be in my "I can't believe I just graduated college" mode up until Thursday, then I'll be getting prepared with:

-Getting my hair cut
-Making sure my friends have everything figured out and know what the plan is for Friday morning
-Making sure I have everything figured out and know the plan
-Deal with my mom, who will likely be crying up until I leave because I'll be spending a weekend away from her
-Deal with my crying, because she'll be crying and I don't like to see her upset
-Repeat all but step one

My job was generous enough to give me that weekend off... and two days before that as well... which sucks because I really wish my pals from Michigan would be able to come out one of those days to have fun ):

Work M, Tu, W and I have the morning Thursday to pack and load up, pick up 3 other people. Then we bust out of Minnesota like we're on the run from the law...Stop for gas, honk at random cars, write on the windows, and meet up with another car that’s going to be following us.

Being a caravan is going to be awesome- then off to Kuma's Corner, then to Rosemont. Where we will be hoboes for the night - we've done it before...

I'll prob go to some of the meet ups but not sure about me amigos. Then we will welcome Friday with enthusiasm and do whatever we can till we can check in and then REALLY figure out what we want to do.

My usual days have been nothing BUT ACen planning, so the very week of I've got a list going.

- Completely finish any and all cosplays by Wednesday
- Clean out the car thoroughly Wednesday night (BF is a pack rat)
- Cram two other friends in the car along with their things into the car and go grocery shopping
- Deal with BF's crappy roommate and the mooching GF of that roommate who practically lives there that Friday morning before leaving to ACen

I'm ready man... it'll be a brawl in the morning if ol' girl doesn't get OUT the bathroom in 15 minutes.

Since my group has to check-in on Thursday, everyone has to finish packing and then coming to my house and wait until my dad comes home from work. I will do the same thing I always do which is Laundry Thursday, clean up the house, pack up my things, and wait for my brother to get dropped of from school. From there we drive to Acen.

I'm packing this week because I am going to Disney World next week and I won't have the time to pack the week of ACen. I don't know when I work on Thursday, but depending on when I work, I'll go to Mitsuwa to eat and grab some magazines. Then Thursday night I'll be going to the late night meet n' greet at Shoeless Joes for a couple of hours and then go to the midnight showing of PotC since I haven't missed a midnight showing for that series.

I would love to go to Vegas right now. I'm actually going in July to watch my brother bowl in a tourney. My gramma is going because she loves Vegas and we are going to hit up the casinos together. lol The next two weeks are gonna go by so fast! I'm going to Disney World Monday-Friday and then I work Saturday-Thursday and then it's ACen time! I'm hoping to have an early shift on Thursday so I can have the rest of the day to myself.

Working my usual schedule Mon-Thursday, may head up for a meet n greet or just spend some time at the red bar knocking back a few on Thursday night, then packing up before bed. Wake up early on Friday morning, probably around 7, walk down to the Blue line, and hop on a train over to the Rosemont stop, then make the short walk to the Hyatt, check my bags, get my badge and begin my weekend birthday EXSTRAVADANZA!!!! Why? Because Tony Danza is a King among men ya know?

Prior to Wednesday, the entire group I'm going with is taking one giant trip to whichever superstore has great deals on food. Woodman's, most likely - just like last year!
Wednesday, the girl and I are probably going to do some last minute touch-ups / packing / and shopping.

Annnnddd - Thursday morning, we're getting our asses up bright and early! Then we'll check if we've got everything before starting to shove it into the car, and then check again once it's all packed! I'll be driving down to Rosemont from WI, so we'll be taking about a 2 hour-ish drive!

Gyahaha, it's all coming so fast! Can't wait!
