So I've been to PAX once before. My first time was back in 2011 at Pax Prime (Pax west) and I generally enjoyed the experience. There was tons of awesome "SWAG" and it was fun playing the beta versions of the games. But, it was also somewhat awkward as I was alone and didn't know anyone. I'm not good at socializing. In fact, I have social anxiety. I couldn't even gather the courage to ask cosplayers who were wearing these amazing works of art if I could take a picture of/with them. I even snuck in a photo without consent because I didn't know how to ask(that's bad of me, I know). But anyways, I've stayed away from PAX (its the only con I go to) because I feel sad telling people that I go by myself. I'm a huge gaming nerd but didn't really make friends from gaming on the internet and I definitely have no one IRL.
