4 Cons of Comicon

There's always bad with the good- but it doesn't outweight it!

4 Cons of Comicon

As a response to my last article, Comicon is indeed a great and positive environment. While everything is super cool, there are definitely some things to watch out for when you go to any Comicon.

1: Prices

Like any public event, prices are going to be jacked up. At least for concessions and stuff. Although if you don't pay attention you can easily spend a lot more than you meant to. Most artists will be nice though and give you a deal when you buy more than one thing at a time. I bought two cheeseburgers and a drink and it ran me 18 dollars. But then again, I got eight pieces of art from a guy for 50 dollars, so its a push-pull kind of thing.

2: Celebs

I had this as a good thing on my other list, but it can also be bad. If you're like me, you might not care about the autograph and instead want a picture with some of your idols. Unfortunately, the way some of the celebs work is they have combo packages. You can get an autograph for such an amount, or, you can get an autograph AND a picture for another, higher amount. I ran into quite a few celebs who wouldn't just let you take a picture, and you never know how a celeb is going to be, because most of the time they are acting, and it's hard to say how they react in everyday life. You could get someone who is very standoffish and it might ruin your experience.

3: People in general

People at the con, like almost everywhere else, are completely clueless. They don't tend to pay attention to what's around them and you'll find yourself getting frustrated at unnecessary lines or people just standing in the middle of the way, for no reason. People are frustrating everywhere you go, but in a packed convention center, you might waste have your time in the event stuck behind a group of people who don't want to move.

4. Your own dedication

Comicon is a lot of work, and if you want to see everything, it's going to take time and patience. You might miss a panel you wanted to see cause another panel you want to see is going on at the same time. Your legs might be tired or you're incredibly hot in the cosplay you decided to wear. Your money might be stretching thin, but you keep seeing things you want. If you do not prepare for the Comicon, it might turn out to be a not so great experience. Keep in mind what you want to spend, how your costume or body will feel after a long day, and just try to stay positive and have fun. Your own attitude determines how much fun you have!

There are definitely very good things about the con and some not so good things, but the event is so fun, and I guarantee if you find yourself going to one, as long as you prepare, you will have more fun then you thought you could.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s.

Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
