1. The second tickets go on sale, you've snatched them up.
2. Once you have your ticket, you start convincing all your friends to go with you.
3. You plan your cosplays out months in advance...
4. ...but end up glue gunning like a maniac the night before anyway.
5. You and your friends decide to split a hotel room which means there's no room for anything.
6. And your back hurts from sleeping on the floor because all the beds were taken.
7. When you get to the convention, there's so many panels you can't decide what to do first.
8. So instead you head to the dealer's room...
9. ... where you're stopped every few minutes to take a picture...
10. ... and you quickly realize that you don't have enough money to get all the cool things you want.
11. When you finally get around to attending your first panel, you realize you've finally found your people.
12. There's always those people that you only ever see at cons but feel inexplicably close to.
13. Meeting your favorite celebrity is always nerve-wracking...
14. But getting your photo op is a lot of fun.
15. Saturday is when you wear your best costume.
16. After parties are always the best at conventions.
17. Which you will pay for on Sunday.
18. By the end of the con you're exhausted.
19. And you're kind of sad it's over.
20. But you had a great time and you can't wait for next year.
