I am creating this mailing list mainly because I feel frustrated that I no longer have -c unltchin to rant about music and litchin@ feels inappropriate to spout music feels.
In general, I have mixed feels about leaving Zephyr. The ultimate reason for leaving was a person in particular, although I was getting pretty swamped with the feeling of expectation to keep up with the times. I do feel like I am less informed about MIT and am missing out on a lot more, but everytime I hit screen -dr and view all of the posts, I want to log out almost immediately.
In the broader scale, I think it is pretty bad that a single person can drive me away from activities and communities that I love. I stopped going to Tech Squares because of a single person as well. In both cases, I seemed to be losing out more than I gained by leaving those communities (not going to Tech Squares prevented me from keeping in contact with Anders and making friends with Tetazoans, not going on Zephyr prevents me from keeping in contact with cruft and getting a pulse on MIT). All that I seem to gain is some childish amount of avoidance which I should really just go and confront.
I am still unclear about what I should do about either situation and would sincerely appreciate any advice.
