Throughout this whole SoA week, everything just felt wrong to me. I participated out of obligation to the SoA week, and it was no fun at all. I felt like I was being forced to do all these challenges and silly things. And it just felt wrong. I don't want to be mean, and I'm usually optimistic about these things, but there was no real Spirit of Aethasia in anything we did last week. It was miserable.
But here's what I think the problem is.
I think you made the SoA week so focused and centered around activities, that it just sucked all the real purpose and meaning out of it. And I think the Spirit of Aethasia week is not about the activities (which are great), but about the community having fun together. We all did only what you wanted—
Maybe I just miss all the other vets...
We had real fun. And we didn't have to try so hard.
I'm sorry, guys. I'm only speaking for myself. Forget it.
