LTUE

Today I’ve got to run a crap-ton of errands in order to get ready for this weekend’s trip to Life, the Universe, and Everything. LTUE is a Science Fiction/Fantasy Convention held at BYU in Provo, UT. It is free for students, and $25.00 for the entire event otherwise. My friend Ian and I have been planning on this for a couple of months now, and I’ve rescheduled school tests and arranged note-takers for other classes in order to make this happen.

In short, this is exciting stuff.

If you are attending, let me know so we can meet up and say hi!
