My old congregation's Regional Convention was the week before last, and for the first time in 20 years, I wasn't there. Instead on the very same weekend, I went to a geeky fan convention called Magic City Con. I had loads of fun there, I cosplayed as a Jedi and the Doctor (which is my current profile pic). It was incredibly enjoyable to finally be able to meet new people that I like and share common interests with and not feel that having a real friendship with them in the future is an impossibility.
Another side note, this "worldly" convention was just as clean and orderly as any JW event I ever went to, and much less boring. I didn't have to pinch myself to stay awake once.
Just wanted to share that update with you all and let you know how I'm doing.
