Biggest Regrets?

Postby SergeKaiser » Tue Nov 04, 2008 9:18 am

I see all these great things going around, but is there anything Youmacon you regret not doing? Something you wanted to do, or say, and just could never muster up and do?

This being my first con, I feel I was WAY to shy. If I could take back anything, I wanted to get to know more people, because there was just so many friendly faces. And after its all over, I see all the great people I missed a chance of running into this year. ARGGHHH

Also, I really wanted to sign up for the rock band tournament. x3 I shoulda gotten a few of my friends that were there sign up with me.

I regret not going to the rave. >_O I was just too tired out from being in the masquerade and I wanted sleep. :cry: Also I would have loved to go to a few more panels. My boyfriend had to miss the Wonderful world of Watase panel he wanted to go to in order to get in line for the masquerade to support me. @_@ I feel bad about that. :evil:

I have the same regret: Not talking to enough people. My friend and I went, and it was her first con, too, but she made a million times more friends than I.

Oh, but I'm ready now. Next year I'm talking to EVERYBODY.

I don't think I have any regrets this year except for the fact that I didn't stand in that long line for the masq.
But other than was perfect <3 I'm breaking out of my con nervousness and asking everyone for pictures, hugging my favorite j-rocker millions of times XD, and this is my first year attending panels.
So can't wait for next year <3 <3

I regret not taking enough pictures. Usually I'm really good about taking tons of photos, but this year... I have no idea what happened! *sigh* NEXT YEAR! xDD That camera will always be on. Hahaha!

--Not having a memory card for my camera. I had it with me but never bothered to take any pictures because of this.
--Not coming early enough to go to the Bleach photoshoot, and as a result missing released!Szayel and HuecoMundo!Mayuri, both of whom I really wanted to see. :cry:

haha, i never regret missing the rave, it always ends up really stinky. the only things i regret are not making more awesome friends . i've been to cons before, but i always clung to my group, i'm glad i talked to more people this year. also, that my friend was caught up in condrama, and i couldn't help. why can't people just have fun at cons and stop worrying about what other people are doing? ): i hope you all get to do what you missed next year, it's going to be so much better.

Does leaving count?

Missing Macross Frontier in the video room, while I have seen all the episodes already, it would have been cool walking in there with my SMS costume, and see how many people would get it. Another is that I forgot certain things for costumes, so I couldn't cosplay certain characters for very long.

Basically the same for me, but my memory cards needed to be formatted...
I missed the photo shoot because I had to get ready with my girlfriend, because we wanted to do things together. So yeah. If she got there like an hour earlier, would have done it. Oh well.
Maybe next time.
I got lucky and saw them both in the stairwell going back down, and also in the lobby just standing around. Didn't have my camera at that time, DOH.

I regret not being there for the earlier part of Sat, didn't get to meet as many people as I might have hoped.
Also my pyramid head weighed way too much to be lunking around for 3 days.
But all in all, it was an awesome time : D
