On Saturday, I spent the morning in Disney with my family and some friends before heading to the convention center to see the Joe Moses Showses and a reading of Starship Requiem (a sequel to the Starkid musical Starship). They were both hilarious and I wish that Starkid could stage Starship Requiem for them to put on YouTube for everyone!

If you want to learn more about Esther and what Esther Day is, you can visit the organization that is in her name called This Star Won't Go Out which helps families with children with cancer.
I also was able to get pictures with Joe Moses, Nick Lang and a Weeping Angel before and during the charity ball.

On Sunday there was only the closing ceremony where we were given Esther Day postcards to send to a person that we love, I sent mine to my sister! They also announced that LeakyCon would become GeekyCon and it would happen every year at the Orlando Convention Center. In addition to GeekyCon there will be a LeakyCon, but it will be smaller and devoted to only Harry Potter. GeekyCon will expand to all things fandom: Sherlock, Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, etc.
I don't think I like the name "GeekyCon." I think it is a kind of stupid name because people have been bullied with the word geek. "GeekyCon" sounds like a name ready to make fun of. Even though I do not like the new name, I will most likely be going to a GeekyCon in the future.

Thanks for reading! Now that I am done with posts from the summer, I will continue with posts about what I have done so far in the school year. I have been having an amazing time at school and I can't wait to write about it! Thanks for reading!
