So I got a new job recently. Without going into specifics, it is a fantastic job at one of the largest professional firms in the world. Whilst my new job is both intellectually stimulating and pays me well, it is incredibly demanding; a light workday is 12 hours long and I am often expected to work on weekends and holidays. This has in turn created a premium on free time. Which I am finding increasingly unfulfilling when spent on TFW and interacting with fandoms in general. As much as I enjoy toy collecting, watching TFP and interacting with people who share my interests, I have simply lost patience with the negativity that permeates places like this. In the past month alone, I have seen what I presume to be grown men and women getting into vindictive arguments over cartoon characters, toy buying habits and video game platforms. Given how little free time I have now, I really don't want to waste it watching people aggressively complain about things. Now I realize people are entitled to their opinions, but it seems to me people are confusing that entitlement for a seeming obligation to rain on other peoples' parade. I realize such behavior is nothing new, and is unlikely to change. But eh, just wanted to rant to anybody who would listen, I guess. tl;dr: I wish we spent more time talking about stuff we like rather than stuff we don't.
