One of the things on my Bucket List is to attend a con. Luckily for me there’s one held not far (in a global sense, it’s about a seven hour drive) from me – a little thing called Dragon*Con.

I want to go, I’ve wanted to go for several years but have never had the nerve to do so or the funds to spare. I’ve crunched some numbers and I think I can manage it for a reasonable amount, if I stay at a hotel about fifteen minutes away from where the con is and watch my pennies.

I haven’t gotten up the nerve to ask for the time off, it’s a holiday weekend and my boss is usually very leery about letting people take those off.

Assuming I could swing the time off, should I do it? I don’t think I would know anyone there, but the chances are someone there would be willing to acknowledge my existence.
