08:31 am: I'm Gonna Attend NYAF!!!! (for real this time)
Okay, guys. You know how for the past two years, I've been having trouble getting to New York Anime Festival?

Well, guess what! This year, one of my best friends from SOVA is gonna help me out with my transportation problem.

If everything goes as planned, and it's definitely looking that way right now - in September, I'll be hopping on a plane to NYAF (and meeting up with my friend, Rachel in NYC). Actually, she has asked her mom about this already, and she said there wouldn't be any problem with sending me a plane ticket. Isn't that awesome? Wow, I'm actually gonna attend the con!! *jumps up and down excitedly*

If this really does happen and it's 100% confirmed by both my parents, I'll be SO HAPPY! It'll be the happiest days of my life! (I'm not kidding) XD

I even talked to my mom about this already and she doesn't have a problem with it. In fact, all my mom has to do is talk with my dad soon, and get him to agree with her (which won't be a problem, since I'll be getting a job very soon, hehe). So pretty much, all I have to do now is get a job. There's no doubt about that, I'll DEFINITELY be geting a job soon. All I have to do is talk to someone at a random retail place and I'm sure they'll hire me...And once that happens, then I'll save up every bit of money I earn, so that I can afford the price of hotel, the weekend pass, food and such.

But anyway, yeah, things are FINALLY looking up for me! Hopefully, if things go as planned, I'll be able to meet my favorite VA, Veronica Taylor at NYAF. <3<3<3<3<3<3

I'm sure that Veronica would be very happy to meet me, especially after everything I've done in SOVA to get her back on Pokemon again. And speaking of SOVA, we've been making excellent progress with our campaign! We've gotten many new members lately, and everyone is has been very active in the projects, sending emails, making phone calls, and sending stuff to Pokemon USA/DuArt. And oh yeah, I wrote this awesome letter, so my friend Pokeyug printed it out and he's gonna give it to the *president* of The Pokemon Company at the TCG Worlds event. I hope he can understand my letter! It was really well written and everyone in SOVA loved it! I have received so much praise for it!! =D

You know, every day, I feel like we're getting closer and closer to having Veronica and the other VAs back on Pokemon. That's just a feeling I've had lately, because for the first time in a while I actually feel really happy and hopeful about everything. ^^

Heh, you guys won't believe this. Just the other day, I ordered Pokemon Christmas Bash from amazon.com - I've been looking everywhere for that CD and they don't sell it in stores near me. I'm so glad I could finlly buy it! I can't wait until that CD arrives, so I can hear Ash sing! Eeeeee!! <3<3

Oh yeah, and as luck would have it, someone from Bulbagarden was selling a bunch of her anime stuff. So, I've arranged to buy a Pokemon poster (which has Ash on it) from her, and something else I've always watned - an original Ash hat (his Kanto/Johto one). And get this, it's not a fan-made hat either! It's an OFFICIAL Ash hat! The one they used to sell in stores during the "fad" days of Pokemon! OMG, I can't believe my luck!! Usually my luck is horrible, but apparently not this month. LOL. XD XD XD!!

I mean, this is so weird, how good my luck's been lately. It's as if I'm dreaming all of this, but I'm not. XD And omg, TrainerRachel is SO generous to send me a plane ticket! The best part is that when I receive this plane ticket, and once I have enough money for the con - my dad will HAVE to agree with my mom about this! Because at that point, there's no way he could object to me going! Hehehehe. =D

Oh my god, this is so awesome! I'm going to NYAF, and it's almost confirmed!! Yay!!!! XD

Let me know as soon as it's 100%, and I'll set up the arrangements to meet with Monika.

Okay, I'll let you know when it's confirmed.

By the way, I need to talk with Monika. It's about my hotel. You see, because Rachel's parents don't know me (cause we haven't met yet) they don't want me to room with Rachel....

So therefore, I have two options now. One, I could get a room by myself (however, my mom didn't like that idea too much), or two, I could room with someone else. Rachel had an idea, that maybe I could stay with Puff and xdeadpan, if they didn't mind.

But the problem is, I don't know whether or not this would be okay with them. Also, I haven't been able to speak with them online for a long time. Plus, I haven't seen either of them on AIM lately. So I don't know what's going on... =(

Don't worry. If you want, I can contact Monika and ask her about it.

Ah, okay. Thanks, Matt!

When you hear back from her, let me know what she says. ^^

Yes, I know I'm replying to an OLD comment, lol. xD

Anyway, I actually didn't get to attend NYAF.

But I finally got to meet Veronica Taylor in person, this year in February, when I attended New York Comic Con!! =D It was awesome! And I had the most fun that I've ever had! <3333
