My first con I volunteered for. Most of the cons I've been to I've been a volunteer for. It is definitely a great experience. You get to enjoy the con, usually without having to pay for a badge beforehand (this varies by con, depending on if they've had too many no-shows in the past), plus you can make a lot of con buddies who are also volunteers. It's definitely a great way to step into the con world if you're nervous.
Every time I open the fridge, the hole in my jello glares at me.
Thank you for completely removing my signature without emailing me that it was too long.
