I really, really, really, really want to attend VividCon. Oh man, do I. Partially because it would give me an excuse to see my family in Toronto, and partially because my inner fangirlish side also demands it from me. I would love to be able to meet and interact with all those vidders, watch the vids in the screening room, and essentially fangirl— I mean, research. Yeah.
But unfortunately, the registration sold out in 15 minutes! I couldn’t believe it when I heard it, let me tell you. But I still really want to go. *hangs head* I will try to go to VidUKon in the UK instead, and I am getting really excited about that one as well. But I am worried that my uni won’t fork out the necessary funding to get me to the UK. It’s a pickle.
Apparently, I am now using this blog to complain about problems and snags in my research. Sorry, audience!
In an attempt to change the general tenor of this post around, I will say that I love my topic, even if it does increase my general stress level by 5000%. But that’s okay – VidUKon, I will try and attend you!
As they say here in Oz, no worries mate. No worries. We’ll figure this out. (Besides, I can’t actually do any fieldwork until I get my ethics approval, but that’s in progress.)
