I just realised that I hadn’t posted anything about how work for our convention, Genki 2010, is coming along, so I figured I’d rectify that!
Truth be told, the last few weeks have been paperwork hell for me. Being the accountant of the union, Genkai, which is behind events such as our convention Genki, it has been my job to balance the books. This means that I have to daily check the bank accounts (yes, plural, since I also manage books for the associate company), balance the books, send out confirmation emails to all the people who have joined, and then take note of who joined, when, and so on. I’ve probably sent out +500 mails in the last 3 weeks. Receipts and stuff like that also go through me, so I have to approve and organise all of them OTL
But despite me totally emoing over paperwork and deadlines, we’re doing pretty well. Our last deadline is on my birthday, July 23, because I’d probably forget otherwise and I most likely will anyway (random factoid: The last deadline we had was actually Kurikku’s birthday, May 27, when we open for registrations). But when we reach that point, we’re only gonna be working on making sure stuff run smoothly during the convention itself so we don’t have to stop parts of the convention because something broke down, but could have been avoided. We’d rather not have to fix stuff in the middle of the con and possibly cancel events; that sucks T^T
Our top priorities right now is to get permissions for weapons display and setting up the stage (since it’s an outdoor stage and we have to think about noise pollution), and making sure that eeeeverything is 100% legal by the time the con starts. For this reason, we (Kurikku and I) have gone on many trips to the tax office, the Copenhagen municipal office and to several police station departments. It would really suck if we held the most awesome con ever and then had our egos get groin-kicked by getting arrested and/or fined for something totally redundant… =.=;
And that’s all for now~. The next Genki 2010 update will probably come during the convention which is only a month away now 8D
Btw, all the drawings, which are of the Genki mascots (Ping&Pong), we’re drawn by the rovery Kaiki of hybridcage.net. I think their new designs are pretty cool *nod nod* And now if you’ll excuse me, I must be off; my bananaphone is ringing! >:3
