Recap: Future Roots Festival + Fanime 2012 (Day 2+3) + Breakfast
Michael, Cathy and I went to watch the performers at the Future Roots Festival hosted/promoted by Asian American Community Involment (AACI) and South Bay First Thursday (SBFT). We bumped into Carolyn and her sisters there near the main stage along with Jess. It was located at Cesar Chavez Park in downtown. There were also stalls where people sold their t-shirts to promote their brand.

Then we went to Fanime since it was just a block away from where we were.
The next day, I went to Fanime again but with Michael, Lauren, Alaena, and Cathy but at night.
We dropped Lauren and Aleana off then picked up Carolyn to go to a party.
On Memorial Day, I woke up to eat breakfast with some of my high school friends.
Recap: Burn Day + Fanime 2012 Day 1
After work, Carolyn, Cathy and I went to burn things from our past. We just happen to choose the windiest day of the week. I swear the tv shows and movies make starting a fire seem so easy. We had a problem starting the fire last time when we burned things. We used the same garbage can that we left behind a tree from last time. It was still there after several months.
Cathy accidentally let all her papers fly away, so before I picked up all the papers.. I took pictures. (duh)
Then these Indian men threaten to call the police if we didn’t stop the fire. It took us awhile to stop the fire and we walked away disappointed since we didn’t finish burning all of our things.
Fanime 2012 Day 1
The next day I went to Fanime in downtown San Jose with Pam. Pam and I went for our first time last year. It was our goal to go during high school but we never got around to it. It was neat to see characters from mangas and animes walking around the Convention Center. People would plan ahead of time with others to complete a whole character set of a series through forums.
Pam told me to take a picture of her because she had a nice butt.
The girl with the loudspeakers organized the group of My Little Pony.
Yes, My Little Pony.
There are multiple “families” so people were allowed to take pictures of a specific family then all of them as a whole.
Most of the time we didn’t know a lot of the characters passing by us but there were some awesome cosplay costumes. We didn’t know who this guy was but we admired him.
Edit: He’s Sephiroth from Final Fantasy
Later that night, I met up with Pam, Kathy, and Tee to eat at Wingstop. Afterwards they came over to my place to make summer plans.
