FanExpo 2016 has come and gone. This epic nerdgasm that occurs ever year, heralding the end of summer, brings together all things nerdy, geeky, and fun. Sci-Fi, horror, anime, gaming, all together in a one, technically 2 massive spaces.
The next weekend was FanExpo! I was so worried I wouldn’t be able to go but I figured out a way to get in for free. I worked the event! I got paid to be at something I wanted to go to and I got to see a lot of cool stuff. Win-win I tells… ...more
