Convention Quadrant: RangerStop & Pop 2021 Press Room Sessions

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe! I am back with the last convention post of 2021!

RangerStop & Pop 2021 Press Room Sessions

So, remember how I mentioned the press room? Well, here we are since I got those videos up. Before the convention, I asked about interviews since during the Orlando side of things we were able to have interviews one on one on Sunday but this was different in Atlanta. They had a room for press to go in and talk with guests and this was pretty nice even though I was not there for Saturday. RJ was and it was good to split up for a day to cover more ground and had me at panels and him in the press room and it worked out pretty even with us sometimes needing to head back to the room for rest. I hope we see this at Orlando since we are planning to go to that one next year and I will explain further down in the post part.

So, Saturday’s room sessions include Austin St. John, the Time Force cast, the Beast Morphers cast, and Kat, Nekia, and Karen in a session. RJ did catch up with me over the phone at some point to tell me that with the Time Force one they only had Deborah which you will see from that title. They tried finding the guys, as in Kevin, Mike, and Jason but they were doing their own thing I believe. I know with Jason he was doing signings most of the time, I caught him during the evening signing which I was really lucky to be one of the last people for that. I think RJ had one more video but it was not recorded, only a few seconds. Wait, I missed one, also David Yaust. So, anyways, please enjoy these videos that I am about to link!

Now it’s time to have a bit of a talk. So, at the end of October, I also mentioned in my NFB Convention Tour that I have been accepted to George Mason University. I had to withdraw from the U. Mass Boston due to my grades and also I was seen for something that I wasn’t expecting and that was my reading comprehension was not great according to the professors that taught the courses I was in during the spring. I felt that after taking some time to recover mentally since it hit me really hard, I felt that U. Mass was not a fit for me since I also not only had to do Assistive Technology courses but also VIsual Studies and I came up that Visual Studies is not my forte. I prefer sticking with the technology courses and I found that in George Mason’s program and took the time not only to apply but also to go to Atlanta of course to recuperate and do what I’ve loved with Nerdy Shique Universe and of course go to see New Found Glory since they were touring and they have been my favorite band since after I was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa. So, with 2022, we are going to aim for RangerStop Orlando in November so I can take the first part of the year to re-build my savings since traveling is not cheap especially with flying and learned that I should have looked for a better deal with Delta Airlines, also to give myself time to focus on my studies. I will also try for the NFB National Scholarship and the State Scholarship for Florida since that could help with funds too. As you know, Nerdy Shique Universe was part of my technology journey since it does show that I can create a blog with using a screen reader and of course making things more accessible for anyone else who comes to these posts can navigate link by link and heading by heading to enjoy what I bring. Now, I am also helping with passing that info along to conventions who don’t have accessible websites and that’s a problem. I will still work on Nerdy Shique Universe since I have reviews and makeup subscriptions to talk about here so don’t worry, I am not leaving the Blogging Quadrant just yet. I will be here! Just understand I may be tied up with school assignments since I am really excited and never gave up on my passion in assistive tech. So, 2022 is looking bright!

So, that completes this post. Again, I would love to thank the RangerStop & Pop staff for having us cover their event. Atlanta has spoiled us and we want to come back most definitely since we found a great Japanese place to eat at and great donuts. I hope we could cover this convention again in the future since it was a nice change to the usual Orlando conventions we’ve covered for years. Again, we are aiming for RangerStop Orlando for another year since we also booked our room since understanding as a convention goer and press team person, hotel rooms can sell out and best to book ahead of time. I hear that Holiday Matsuri just had their Thursday block sell out. Tangents aside, that is it! Again, happy to cover this convention and looking forward to 2022 and my future at George Mason! Waiting on my subscriptions and hoping to do reviews since I am still reading some books and hoping to start watching a live-action series, won’t reveal it as of yet. Stay tuned guys!
