So! Quick recap - The last few days in SoCal were so much fun! Brain is semi-failing me with jet lag and all, but from what I can remember, we hit a lot of last minute shops within the last 2.5 days.
Monday was spent near Santa Monica, the Grove and eating at MILK. We even managed to get ourselves a parking ticket. X_X;
The highlight of our Tuesday was meeting with the Flight crew! We had popped by their booth at SDCC, but KS had been in contact with Studio Amzu before hand and found that Tuesday would be a great opportunity to meet up in Alhambra at Gallery nucleus. We seemed to have lucked out and met most of the crew as well as some of the out-of-state visitors.
I had the best talk about comics and making things happen by my own volition.
For the longest time, I've really felt very self-conscious about my abilities and how well I am received by others. So much so, that things became quite difficult to just trust myself and doubt and fear just becomes a daily part of my life. There's so much to gush about, but to keep things short so I can continue to digest these feelings and regurgitate them for you later~ ^^
In a nutshell, this is what I got out of it:
"Life is planned. Risks are calculated."
More on that later.
We slightly overslept on Wednesday as we packed all our goods the night before. We head straight to Santa Monica in hopes of grabbing a Gama-Go artbook. We got stuck in traffic and had less than 45 minutes to get gas in the rental, grab lunch, and take it back to the airport. For some reason though, whenever we rush to get to the airport on time, there are stupid long delays with engine problems. (See SDCC and train fiasco...)
We had a flight delay getting to SFO from LAX because of incoming crew from Denver. THEN we had toddler singing, screaming, yelling, crying and all but kicking the back of our BROKEN seats on the way. Then when we arrived at SFO, we found our connecting flight was delayed with engine problems... so our flight was delayed till about 8:30pm.
We got back home around 11pm and finally got to sleep after showering and mild unpacking/reorganizing around midnight.
KS had work today and I'm still super jet-lagged. I spent most of today washing laundry and unpacking some of the bags. Who knew how quickly things accumulate! XD
We're still trying to get our bearings, so tomorrow's strip might be delayed a little. Photos coming soon... once we back everything up and sort through them. ^^
I lament the weather. It's beautiful blue skies and all, but it's so hot and humid. T_T;;; *cry*
