This weekend, a good number of the usual suspects didn’t show up; but we were still able to get about 14 people over to the build gathering. Rockband was fired up off and on through the gathering, Season 4 of Family Guy was thrown in, the grill was loaded with food, and we also built models.
We have a couple of new comers this time around as well. Hopefully we’re growing the interest into building. Hopefully the group (and I usually mean me when I say this) didn’t scare some of the newer folks away. Here are more pictures from the gathering. I didn’t set the camera up correctly, so a good number of the pictures are a bit blurry: http://www.gamerabaenre.com/mbg12.htm
I found myself dragging my feet to build again. And per my mood for the past couple of weeks, I found that I could only start another new project. I got the little wrestler girl pinned. I spent most of the time playing rockband. It was good to have friends over. I definitely had fun. I’m a bit more motivated to get some of the work on the 1-4-4 Bar as it really is crunch time. I also need to get off my ass and get the workshop presentations completed. I want to through up some new torrents for the stuff soon. I think there is definitely a better flow with the new materials.
Evan introduced another girl to the build gathering, his sister. (
AX is coming up this week, so it will be interesting to see how many people from the gathering show up there. I’m sure we’ll be meeting up at the event; and probably figure out more specific details on where we meet up then. I guess it is time to busy myself and bottle up some of my personal issues so that I can have some focus for the next few days.
For those that go through relationship issues, I highly recommend trudging through. Do not lock yourself away from the world completely. There are plenty of opportunities for alone time, time to reflect, time to wallow in your own self pity; but I do not believe that one should take time away from friends and activities to add one’s already alloted amount of alone time. It is good to vent, it is good to have some alone time; however, there is a balance that must be maintained. Go out with friends, I’m filling time I used to spend with her, with time spent in contact with others. I am starting to face this issue. I know it is not the end of the world, it only feels like it is; move along.
