This is Weird
OK, so this is too weird.

There is a campout coming up - one of the recurring ones that I have provided sound gear and done DJ coordination for, since back in 1998.

The organizer has changed from the person who's been doing it recently, back to the one who was doing it when I first started - and he has always said that I did a great job at it. Nevertheless, he has arranged for someone else to handle it this time.

This is kinda weird for me, because (as I'm sure you've heard) I am shy - so I actually like having something to do, and a context. But, ok, I'm not doing it this time. Maybe I'll get to do it again in the future - I let him know I really want to.

That was last week. Today, someone posted to the list that they are organizing a costume exchange, which is the other thing I always have done!

This is just bizarre.

I don't know what to do!

Jovino says I should do nothing - just go and enjoy myself. And maybe he's right. But I have to admit the idea makes me nervous! What will I doooooooooo???

I suppose there are worse problems to have.

Relaxing is hard work...

I know so many people who always have to be doing something on their weekends when they are supposed to be getting away and chilling. I'm one of them, and my partner is another. I think it gets back to the human be-ing v. human do-ing conundrum that is endemic to the human condition.

I've definitely had experiences, as well, where something I do was yanked out from under me without anyone telling me they were giving the job to someone else. It's a weird feeling: did I do something wrong? Do they not like me anymore? More often than not, someone else has gotten vocal about wanting to step in to that position.

Perhaps the lesson, then, is learning to offer your help. Maybe the organizer didn't want to overburden you, thinking that you had done it for too many years and might like a break?

Try not to take it personally. And have a great time. I'm sorry to be missing said trip....

Re: Relaxing is hard work...

Said trip is going to miss YOU, lady!

Just for the record, I did offer - back in May. The response was that the organizer "would love" to have me do it, as always.

Trying to be chill about it, do as little as possible, and not care what happens. Easier said than done!
