You all know I LOVE Dragon*Con (Who doesn't, right?). There's no other place like it. I'm so proud of the fact that I've gone for two years in a row. Getting to meet and hang out with so many amazing people is worth the lack of sleep, the achey muscles, and the caffeine overdoses.... and breaking the bank! xD
But... as it stands now, my bank is still broken. As you're all most likely aware, I'm an aspiring artist and in the past few months, I've started to take it VERY seriously. Well, last year, I seriosuly considered getting an artist table at GlitchCon, Bobby Scarbrough's event (AKA DJ Infam0us) selling my art, and aquiring fans. I've already begun to prepare for it, but there's a catch. It's a week after Dragon*Con. Any sane person would choose.. Well, I'm going to attempt to make it to BOTH. Yes. I will be exhausted.
What I need money for is, not for the Cons, I think I can make that myself (with the help of my boyfriend :D), but a permanent residence. As it stands, our con money would most likely go towards getting a place to live. Right now, I'm back in East Texas, living with my parents and it's not my favorite place in the world but it's getting better through all the effort I've put in to make it that way. My boyfriend is living with his parents as well, in Magnolia, Arkansas. About three hours away.
Why can't I get a job? Well, I've tried. There aren't really any jobs where I live, and if I got one I'd have no time to draw and make stuff! Also, there's my school work to think about, which I have a very limited amount of time to complete.

Seriously though, if you actually donate to this, I'll be forever in your debt. It would mean the world to me, no matter how much you give. Also, a little portion of what you give will go to helping animals in need! <3 I love the animals.
