4. Oh, I didn't mean it in a negative way at all. The other thread was for me to vent about feelin bad.
So I posted this in another thread because it was a little more upbeat to talk about the convention.

I went in not knowing what to expect... Fan conventions in general have a negative reputation for bringing out the most socially awkward nerds in existence, and, per my other post, I don't need more of that in my life.

I wish I was a good enough writer to blog, but I can't compose my thoughts in a vaccuum, if nopony is replying to me then I just get long-winded and write too much and then noone reads it at all. Blogs seem to exist to validate the opinions and self-worth of people who are popular and have a lot of friends on-line. I remember trying to hold conversations about the terrible urban planning in this country on actual urban planning bulletin boards and nopony listened to me, so I finally stopped talking to people about it because I couldn't find people who a) agreed with me and b) were willing to have a conversation about it. That's why I am upset that the person I used to work for won't call me back, because she and I used to have great conversations about arcane urban planning issues that nopony in this country gives a shit about (because we have terrible architecture and terrible, automobile oriented infrastructure.) If I had a blog I'd probably talk a lot about those things but I'd have to have friends who wanted to read it first. I know people say "write for yourself" but I don't see the point if nobody reads it.
