Shaved My Head for Technology
by Margaret Krohn on July 19th, 2012

Hey there!

I'm back with another vlog! Lots of things have changed including my appearance! Haha. Hope you enjoy it! 
I have to say that Hairpocalypse 2012 with the PlanetSide 2 team and fans was the craziest gathering of nerds that I've ever encountered. It's definitely the most unique event that I've been to. Has anyone else been to something that tops that? Haha. It was great to meet all the fans. Losing all my hair...Well, that's another story, but at least it will grow back. :) What do you think of it?

I still can't believe I'm going to be in China next week! I get to go to the China Joy convention in Shanghai for PlanetSide 2. I'm pretty pumped and nervous, but I think it will be generally pretty rad. I won't have access to much internet wise, so don't expect me to be posting much on my social networks. I will have a ton of photos, videos and other things to post and talk about when I get back, I'm sure! I hope that I get to do a bit of exploring outside of work. We'll see how much time I have. Either way, I'm sure I'll get to eat lots of delicious Chinese food. *Nom nom*

Also, I went to Disneyland for a day! I was supposed to go for a full weekend of relaxation and fun, but I have far too much work so two of our friends came out and did a fast twelve hour tour of Disneyland with us. They were great guides! We didn't even need a map. They were definitely Disneyland pros, unlike us. I had so much fun and took lots of photos!
I thought that the World of Colour was beautiful. We didn't get front row seats, but I'm pretty happy about that since, from where we were standing, we were getting wet, so I can't imagine what people in the front row were enduring. I hope they brought their ponchos!

I didn't get to ride all of the rides because my boyfriend is a giant wuss whenever it comes to roller coasters (I have to give him credit for still taking me though), but out of all the ones I did ride, I thought that Space Mountain was the best. There were a few that were literally PAINFUL to ride! O___o I thought my back was going to fall off. Also, the lines were ridiculous! You'd wait for an hour or more for one ride and the ride was only about five minutes MAX of enjoyment. Queueland is my new nickname for Disneyland. I still had fun though! My recommendation, go with people you really like and want to talk to...Otherwise, the line waiting will be awkward and boring. 

I'm still trying to cram in as much gaming as I can, but I haven't gotten to play much other than PlanetSide 2 at work and SMITE which I haven't played in a few weeks. D: I just upgraded my PC, got a new mouse from one of my designer buddies, Jimmy, and I haven't had any time to stream and game. I'm hoping I can try to even out my work load and game time so I have more time for streaming. We'll see. With the trip to China Joy, I'm not sure that is in my future.
Anyway, I wanted to stop in and give everyone an update! Hope all is well. Let me know what exciting things you've been up to, if you've been to any strange nerd gatherings, or if you just have some neat technology tidbits to share! I can't wait to read your comments. 

<3 x 9001,
