Abilities Expo 2015

Abilities Expo 2015 is here!
Hello, how's it going?
K well, I've been interested in going to my closest Abilities Expo for a while now, which is the one in Houston. I really thought I was going to be able to go this year to see and learn about all that's out there for the disabled community. I wanted to see some sport events with disabled players in person. I also heard there would be an affordable gadgets booth that would sell things to help everyday life easier for us, like a jar opener invention, I don't know about you but that stuff excites me, anything that can help my independence gets my attention. I'm not gonna lie I also wanted to go for the beauty tips/makeover booth they say they will have.
But...big BUT, it's only been a couple of months since I got a job. Recently, I asked for some sick days off and soon I'm going to ask for some vacation days to go on a trip which falls too close to the Expo dates. I think as a new employee I should limit my day off requests to a minimum.
But, just because I can't make it doesn't mean you can't, here is a link with the info on Abilities Expo's official webpage if you are interested in going to one of the Expos. I hope I didn't share this info too late for y'all to make plans to go. If you do go have fun on my behalf too.
