Ow, I can see how that would all combine to create a problem.
Under 5' tall and with peripheral vision issues--that would create challenges all over the place, even in a tiny car like a Mini. I can respect being aware of your limitations and making the choice not to take the risk, though.
That's gotta be tough. Unwillingness to drive, or inability? It seems like the choice of words was deliberate.
I can't even afford to go to cons, unfortunately. The unwillingness to drive limits job possibilities, especially in a place where people that -can- drive aren't getting jobs at the moment.
So right now, getting some friends is the best I can do. I was never so great at keeping any back in my school days.
I hear that. Went through a pretty rough breakup, been spending some time single for the first time in a very long time, and came to more or less the same conclusion: that I needed to expand my circle of friends, especially since I'm coming back to anime fandom after a long hiatus and don't really know anyone at cons.
No worries at all, glad to meet you. What motivated you to try out this quiet little site?
