I'm sure you (whoever you are) have been waiting with bated breath for an update since my last post nearly 2 weeks ago. It's been nuts around here! A couple people offered to help with building out the interior and it looks so amazing - it makes me realize how boring the place would be otherwise.
If you're looking for screenshots - not gonna get them today. You'll just have to log in starting Thursday!
1. My GIF of the exterior was super well-received on r/gencon!
2. I got a couple volunteers to help with building!
(thank you if you're reading this)
3. I figured out how to do the convention center carpet!
4. 26 people have signed up so far!!!
I posted up events for other times so maybe those will get approved and more people will sign up for those!
I'm not going to pull a lifestyle blog "here's 16 paragraphs and then the actual recipe" stunt. Here it is! Not perfect but I was going cross-eyed.
In the past week I have:
1. Gotten a root canal
2. Gotten a crown for above root canal
3. Moved out of our house for renovations
So my build is way, way behind schedule.
BUT I have a server up! With plugins! That seem to be working?
AND my Gen Con event submission was officially accepted! I'll need to submit a ton more but that's on tonight's "I can't stand writing //replace anymore" activity.
The other task for today is making that f*cking gif and posting to various subreddits and trying to drum up some help for building out these rooms and exhibit halls. There's no reasonable way for myself to finish in 17 days.
Life Pro Tips:
1. Do not take a nap with your cat.
2. Do not download TikTok.
At least Level 2 is much easier than I originally feared.
I'm still here, I swear! And I am working suuuper hard on this build. The interior is just kind of coming together in bits and pieces instead of having fully finished sections so I don't have much for pretty screenshots. I'm also simultaneously working on Level 2 where possible, so that's adding to my time.
I finally finished up the east side exterior and will have the final exterior door done tonight as well. There *will* be a gif.
No pictures today - I'm just posting because I feel guilty not keeping up with the blogging.
