Post subject:  Re: The Problem with Conlanging

The difference between a lot of hobbies that have been mentioned (for example poker) and conworlding, is that there is no end in the former. Conworlding always ends up with a product of some sort. But I'm starting to have issues with just storing my product on my harddrive. It is not a money issue, althogh lack of time is an issue here, which indirectly relates to money. I have other things that I could do that are seemingly more beneficial for me in the long run than conlanging. And those are the things that I have been doing for the past two years. It's not that I don't like conlanging and conworlding, but it seems to end up at the bottom of my to-do list. Not because I don't like it, but because it frustrates me. It makes me happy, but it also makes me sad.

I love the act of creating conlangs. That's why I do it. But it seems to cause me more anxiety than a hobby should., probably because I care too much That's all.

Dungeons & Dragons and such. The point is that they were just as nerdy about it as I am about conlanging.

I came to terms with the fact that people will show scant interest in my conlanging and conworlding efforts many, many years ago. And, to be honest, that makes me happy because the thought of being well known doesn't excite me. Like I'm a signed-up member of the anti-celebrity culture.

In the end conlanging and conworlding can be great fun, but friends and lovers can be even better fun. It's a balance thing, innit.

I don't think I've ever had a negative reaction the few times it's brought up. People either are uninterested (which is understandable, since not everyone's going to be interesting studying how language works) or seems at least somewhat interested and ask questions about it.

My roommate seems to be alright with it. I'm sure that he believes that it is my version of a intellectual pursuit.

My mom thinks it is interesting, but I haven't gone into detail about it with her.

My father thinks that I should cut back on it in favor of more useful things, but isn't against it.

I never talk about it. I hardly ever mention that I study linguistics; I don't think anyone knows that except my parents and a few people who I knew in high school. Everyone else who I know IRL knows practically nothing about my interests (except possibly that I'm majoring in political philosophy), and I prefer to keep things that way.

My parents had no idea what I was talking about when I mentioned Esperanto once, so I never went into the subject again. But both of my circles of college friends included conlangers, so it wasn't a totally mysterious thing to people I brought it up to.

I live in a fairly Christian community (I enjoy it but enough said.) So when I brought it up, I was asked if I was trying to recreate God's language, the first language, and stuff along similar lines.

I said no and that it was a hopeless endeavor. Besides the closest I think you can get is learning Hebrew. They acted disappointed. Then they brought up Tolkien.

Have you ever looked around you and noticed how hopelessly mediocre people can be?
