NRVCon 2017

This convention has returned for its second year.

NRVCon 2017

On April 23, 2017, NRVCon began at 10 a.m. inside the University Mall in Blacksburg, Virginia. The event was hosted by four groups: Fun n' Games Hobby Shoppe, the E-Sports lounge, Archvillain Comics, and the Virginia Tech Science Fiction and Fantasy Club. There were 44 guests vendors who came, setting up their tables and merchandise for the 668 people that came.

Some of the individuals there that should be mentioned were Kevin Sharpe, who has worked on both Marvel and DC comics, SC Houff, the author of Spring Blessings and Summer Sacrifice, and the Mizfit Cosplayers of Virginia. Tickets for entry were only $5 a piece, and the convention seemed to cover a wide variety of fandoms. One vendor was selling merchandise from the TV show Supernatural, while on the other side of the mall there were hour long campaigns of Pathfinder.

NRVCon did a wonderful job of providing a solid variety of vendors, events and other groups that came to participate. This was the second year of NRVCon.

There had also been a Facebook page created for the event. Posts were primarily about the groups coming to be a part of the convention, though in the last few days before the convention they began a countdown, completely with pictures and exclamation points.

Unlike last year, this year there were shirts and buttons that could be purchased with the logo, which was created by Justin Wood and displayed at the top of the webpage.

From Magic the Gathering to Pokemon to cosplay, the convention was a success and will hopefully be seen again next year.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
