Supanova

24 June 201205:10PMlife

GREETINGS, O MIGHTY FUTURE SELF.

It is I, Past Self, and I have travelled here with a warning from the year 2012! The message is this:

"Supanova is not as good as it seems."

You see, future self, right now I know this. It is fresh, in my memory, that Supanova is not really very exciting, and that while there are some pretty cool people there, for the most part it is overpriced and fairly lacking in interesting things to do, especially if you are not interested in buying things.

But if you're reading this in a year, you've most likely forgotten all of this, and are looking at people's plans for Supanova and thinking, "Yeah, I could probably do Supanova." You will have forgotten the oversaturation of anime fans, the total lack of oxygen, the fact that the celebrities are too expensive to see, and the crushing boredom that sets in when you realise that there's nothing to do but spend money you don't have on things you don't need.

I tell you this, future self, in full knowledge that you will most likely ignore me, and go to this event (because it's just about the only thing like it in Perth, and some of your friends are going, and maybe you'll catch a glimpse of a celebrity the way you did that one time with Summer Glau) and come home with a fresh set of realisations very similar to the ones above, and a niggling feeling that you felt this way last year too. I guess what I'm really trying to say, future self, is this:

"I told you so."
