This past weekend, a large number of students from Champlain came to Montreal for the Montreal International Game Summit (MIGS), a video game convention and expo that takes place every year here in Montreal. The majority of students currently in Montreal from Champlain are either Game Design majors or Game Art and Animation majors, so a huge chunk of the group was gone during the two days of MIGS. It was great having students come up from Vermont for MIGS too, since I was able to see friends from Burlington that I hadn’t seen for a while!
That Sunday evening when everyone arrived from Vermont though was a bit crazy! I was sitting in my apartment eating dinner, when I hear a knock at my door. I opened it to find Dan Merrill, who stayed at my place during his stay for MIGS. “Awesome!” I thought. A few moments later, about 15 people came walking into my apartment looking to meet everyone and check out the apartments. I recognized about 6 of them, so having these new faces in my place was a bit strange at first. But introductions were made and with new friends abound, we all watched a movie before they left to go wherever they ended up staying that weekend. On top of the new people, many of my friends that are already in Montreal were in my apartment, bringing the total number of guests I had at about 20. I had never had so many people in my apartment at one time. It was pretty great though!
Tonight, Wesnide is having a girl’s night at her place. There’s only 7 girls here, so we gotta stick together! But joking aside, it’ll be nice to hang out without having so many boys around. They’re all great guys, but all girls need a little girl time.
This is a short update, yes, but I’m a bit swamped with everything! Be sure to check back in a few days for a better, longer update. 😀
