So I’m in a pickle. My buddies and I want to go to Comic Con next year. We’ve talked about it extensively and short of having badges (since they won’t go on sale for a few months) we’ve got it all planned out. Since my spending money is well below what is needed to make the trip on my own I asked my parents to help me pay the bill as part of my Christmas for this upcoming year. San Diego is a long way from the South East coast and it would cost quite a pretty penny to get there, stay there, get all the goodies I’d want, etc. So money wise it’s a big commitment on my and my parent’s part. Also I’ll be starting my Veterinary Technology classes next summer which will be quite taxing and Comic Con would be the week before my finals so that’s also a big factor.
So here is my issue, should I go or not? It’s been a dream of mine to go since I was like 12 but obviously I could never find a way to get to San Diego and my parents wouldn’t let me go alone. If I didn’t go I could get a few things that I want for Christmas (air brush, compressor, the Gojulas, new DVDs for my anime collection, etc.). But I mean it’s freaking Comic Con, that’d be awesome to the max especially since I’m a bit of a nerd like that. What would you do if you were in my shoes?
