Don't get me wrong. In hopes I've always checked and tried to figure out a way just like all the other trips I have in my bucket list but some things just never work out.
Pax this year.. was on my birthday.
I hunkered down and waited knowing from past experiences with popular concerts and such that this may or may not happen anyways.
Hotel and Badge acquired!
We somehow all get into the same hotel as well which sounds like can be rare.
3:55 all nearby hotels are sold out.
4:13 saturday badges are sold out. It takes a little more time for Friday and Sunday badges to sell out.
Shantz mentions how it wasn't this bad last year. This may be due to the early announcement which didn't happen in the past from what I heard.
Shantz and Greggles start joking about first time experiences and how overwhelming it can be. All the stimulus going! How I'll be buying all the shiney things. They are not wrong so I can't argue with that. Booths beware! Shiny buyer coming!
We did it. We got the tickets that people were now either cheering or complaining about on the boards. I felt like the luckiest girl in the world to get those tickets and be able to get a hotel that was close and a flight that was cheap. It was a sign. It had to be a sign! Im still saying it was a sign. Damnit a sign from the birthday gods! Your 30th birthday shall be the epix and you shall make it so!!!
