Sick of it all

I have come to the realization that I really should stop caring getting involved with groups that pertain to my hobbies. I put forth effort to care for the success of groups in which I am involved, and more often than not, that ends up coming to kick me in the ass. The perfect example of this is the super hero costume group that we have been trying to form locally. There were 5 people chosen from the group who worked a couple of hours a week for 6 months to come up with a governing document after the first attempt of saying you will be this officer, do what you want with it didn’t work. Members of the group didn’t really see that we were working and this lead to people bitching that we weren’t doing anything. Due to this perception, other members just wanted to steam roll through different aspects and that ended up causing dissension in the ranks so to speak.

Elapse to now that it is time for elections, and all of this is blowing up. Myself and one other member of the group often offer a point of view that is opposite of the majority, and because of that fact, we are viewed as trouble makers, and people who are just trying to cause conflict. This has really been wearing on me really badly. I am going to stand up for what I believe and not cave in to the majority, and due to that, it is causing me to get stressed out to a level that I haven’t reached in quite some time. I am at a point where I don’t even want to hang out with the people from the group and that makes me stress out even more since I don’t want to lose friends over this. It isn’t worth it.

I think I am just going to step away from my costuming hobby for a while. I know that it will save me money that I can put towards other things, and maybe reduce the stress.

It was better for the base

I just stepped down as the CO of the Corellian base. I just don’t have the time to commit to it, and I feel that the base is suffering due to that fact. Just thought I would let those who are members know.

Here I am at work

So I am doing emails today, so I get a chance to have a slower day now
that the inbox is empty. I am planning on heading to the airsoft store
today to try to decide what new toy to pick up on Friday. I am
debating between a sniper weapon or a M249 SAW. I really can’t go
wrong with either, but I am at a 50/50 decision right now.

I watched the 2nd episode of Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles
and I really like it. I hope Fox doesn’t screw it up like they do with
all of their good shows. If you didn’t get a chance to see it, the
first episode is available as a free download on itunes right now. You
can’t beat free, so make sure that you go and download it.

Chattacon is the weekend after next, and I am ready to have a weekend
to be a geek and drink lots of beer. I haven’t really done that in a
while. Beer is good.

I have also come to the realization that I have some sort of meeting
of some sort almost every night during the week. Mondays, PB, tuesdays
SOSI 5, Wed, airsoft team meeting, Thursday and Friday don’t have
anything regular, but stuff seems to pop up all of the time.

Well back to being productive.
