A great first day at AGC
Our first day yesterday running a booth at the Austin Games Conference was amazing. We had heavy traffic all day long, lots of people coming up to us and asking us about GoPets. I did a few interviews as did Chris. I was away at a panel when Chris was interviewed by a Bangladeshi tv station! He was nervous and looking for me apparently, but I'm sure he did fine. I, too, did a few interviews, but nothing on tv. My first one was awful, I probably had about 10 seconds of good "uhhhhh....hmmmmm....yeah....." but after that first one was done, I relaxed and did fine. So good in fact, one of the guys who is running the booth next to us and helping us with PR and kind of taking me under his wing this last two weeks told Erik that I do really good interviews! Erik told me later and said he was impressed and thanked me for coming to work for him and helping out and that he knew I'd be great at this.

:-)

It was awesome to hear that after my first big PR event for GoPets and after only 4 weeks on the job part time and after a 6 year hiatus from working at all.

I am extremely happy with how things have gone here so far. I've gotten a lot of good feedback and while talking to people at the evening events and parties, bunches of them congratulate me on a great event. I guess since I am PR Manager, it would make sense that I would get some credit for it.

So, basically, I'm very happy working again and having a great time in Austin and, get this, actually looking forward to getting back to Seoul and getting into a schedule with the girls and working.

A few links:

Press Release I co-wrote.

A few pictures from the conference.

Ok, gotta go to the exhibit hall. This was my morning off since yesterday I was up at 7am even though I had stayed up partying until 3:30am that morning. I guess I kick ass under pressure and with no sleep! Tonight is the Austin meet up...and I snagged goodies for people who show up. :-)

Wicked!! That's a really nice compliment to hear =D

You know what? Looking over the pics, I feel quite honored to have my teeny-tiny part in working with this company, & getting to see it grow like this. It's very exciting ^_^

PS, more pics.. Wahaha =P

hehe, I don't know if you'll see this before tonight, but I may show up! Drag my little brother to Chuy's (since the meeting is there?) and feed him and just stop by the table if I see y'all. Or just stop by to say hi, since I can't eat still =/

hopefully see you there! I may be determined to show up for a little bit since I couldn't meet up with you in Korea, haha.

HEY! You gotta come if you can! Yes, we're meeting at Chuy's tonight around 7pm.

I kind of wish we were sticking around tomorrow for the football game! Man, this town is pumped. It's kind of cool being in a college town, even if it is UT. *gags*

:-p

haha, yeah! My roommate and I aren't really into the football spirit here, which is blasphemous and stuff, but... oh well, haha.

It was really great meeting you! And sorry I couldn't help with getting y'all back to the hotel, my little brother, his friend & roommate were actually waiting in the car for me while I was visiting with y'all, haha. I hope y'all got home in a orderly fashion!

And so you guys will be back next year? I'll still be in Austin!

Looks like a lot of fun! It's much easier to get up early after a late night when you're pumped with adrenaline.

I have to agree with Happysurveyor. Some of my best days have come after exceedingly late nights to bed.

I'm so happy it's going well for you guys! I know you all work hard for GoPets.
