Cut out the judging and labeling


OK, for those who don't know me and are just joining in reading welcome.  For those who may be regular readers I think I need to make things a bit more clear.


I'm a Hospice/Geriatrics RN in real life.  I am also a Heroes fan.  While I know what I do is valuable, that doesn't stop it being stressful.  I play video games and do online RP as a respite. I also do some minor photoshoping and  I am also involved in the Heroes ARG.  In case it is unclear to anyone reading, I know where the fiction line is thank you very much, and I also think it highly unlikely I will be able to meet my favorite actor Christopher Eccleston who plays Claude on Heroes (among several other amazing performances) in person.  There is also a lot going on in real life that I don't always put online.  So before you judge or lable me think about this: would you want someone dumping on you?

5/27/08 ETA: This is not meant towards any of my friends but rather those who read any of my online journals and haven't taken the time to know me and just rushed to judge me.

Some uninvited guest gave me grief here and over on MySpace I was having issues as well. I deleted the comment over here and messaged the person that I didn't appreciated what they'd said and I've now taken to screening comments over here because of that.

It wasn't my costume, it was all online stuff. We have Heroes characters showing up on both 9th Wonders BBoards, as well as Imeem, and occasionally MySpace. I just play along with the ARG and I got crap for that.

Wow-I'm so sorry that you had to deal with someone that petty. Really. If your interests lie in a fandom, that's your own business-it's not hurting anyone, you're not taking away from useful society in any way. I guess I'll never understand how people feel that they can judge others. Especially over something so silly-I mean, some people knit, some people join a fandom. What's the difference? It's an outlet, that's all-a way to express yourself and de-stress all at the same time.

Thanks, Tracy. That's what I'm doing. De-stressing. While my job contributes to society and is rewarding, it's still stressful and draining.
