Most of you (probably) know that I’ve been frantically trying to find someone to come with me to see Fall Out Boy because my parents wouldn’t let me go alone, right?
WELL in the end, since my sister is the only one who WANTS to go with me and she’s only 12 so my parents SURE AS HELL weren’t going to let us go alone, my whole family decided to do a like… mini-vacation. The kids have never been to Atlanta, Dallas doesn’t even remember the ONE time they’ve stayed in a hotel before, and my parents decided ‘fuck it, we’ll all go!’ so we’re going Sunday, eating lunch, going to the World of Coca Cola (I LOVED that place as a kid), then Graysie and I are going to the concert while the others go shopping and out to eat or something (probably swim in the pool at the, honestly) and then go home the next day.
HERE’S THE SUPER AWESOME BIT! (well no all of its but whatever) THE HOTEL IS ONE OF THE DRAGON*CON HOTELS! I can get a feel for the downtown area while we’re there! The Hyatt Regency is only 3 blocks from the World of Coca Cola and only like 5 blocks from The Tabernacle (concert venue) and I’m gonna try to talk my parents into letting us walk (if my dad has to walk WITH us to the Tabernacle then walk back to get us, so be it, I wanna get a feel for the walking situation since we’re going to walk exclusively for Dragon*Con after we park the car) but I’m kinda doubtful. Like I said, they didn’t want us to go to Atlanta alone (I’m 22 and she’s 12), I HIGHLY doubt they’d let us walk around downtown Atlanta at night alone, lol.
NOT that I blame them. I wouldn’t want to walk around alone. With my sister I’m not so worried (she’s 12 but she’s also like 5’8” and big, way less likely someone will try to mug the two tall, large girls, lol) but there’s no way in hell I’d walk around by myself at night there. That’s just ASKING to get held up and your stuff stolen. (Unless you’re my deranged friend Amber who thinks I’m a pussy for not wanting to walk alone at night in a city since she’s jaded from a lifetime of living in NYC)
EITHER WAY IM GOING TO SEE FALL OUT BOY AND STAY IN A SUPER AWESOME HOTEL (that was SHOCKINGLY cheap, holy shit) IN ATLANTA AND IT’S GOING TO ROOOOOOOOCK! AHHHHHH!
(If you didn’t figure it out, we don’t get to travel in my family, lol. Traveling when there are 3 adults and 3 kids is not cheap PLUS my dad literally never takes days off work. He works 7 days a week, EVERY week of the year. He works half-days on CHRISTMAS that’s how rare this is for him!)
