I’m going on an adventure!

This weekend will not be filled with me sitting on the couch crocheting. Instead, I’ll be running around the World Forum in The Hague, making sure that Animecon 2013 is going as planned. It’s one of the biggest anime conventions in the Netherlands and I’m one of the lucky (if a little stressed out) people who get to make it happen.

I have been helping with organising the festival for a few years now, at first as a ‘lowly’ gopher, just working the jobs they gave me. Then, I went on to work with Gopherplanning, giving other volunteers their shifts. Last year, I was asked if I wanted to join the staff as the person responsible for the cloak&bag room. I happily agreed, not realising how stressful it would be to set up a cloak&bag room in an entirely new location for about 3500-4000 visitors! So I’be been a little jittery for the past week.

Today we will start building up and from Friday till Sunday it’s game on! It will be loads of fun as well, of course, meeting up with people I hardly get to see over the year, following workshops, watching anime, looking at amazing cosplays, browsing through the dealerroom…

I just hope I don’t get any withdrawal symptoms from not being able to crochet all weekend…

Cheers, Lydia
