I should be at Cock Con now. Yet I’m not. This is sad. I am part of not-show-up coast. I am part of non-show-up coast. Not really part of any coast since I don’t live in the US. And still not there. Not with them. These friends whom I’ve known for close to five years already. Will I ever meet them afk? Will I ever only be able to hear their voices? I do not yet know the answer to these questions, as I do not claim to be able to foresee the future. But I will try to keep some hope alive.
