TFOL Venting
Join to comment
 Group admin 
There has been a few conversations going around about having issues being a Teen Fan Of LEGO, and just being a fan of LEGO regardless of age. I've decided to make a new topic where us TFOLs can vent about our problems, and give each other advice.

Well, back when I was in 4th grade, I brought some minifigures to play around with after school during after school care. (I was at a private school, and my parents worked late. Also, all my friends were always picked up after school early.) While I was by myself being my geeky little self, two girls came up to me and started making fun of me for bringing minifigures to school with me. They called me one name that I can remember, "MCLegoboy." A few years later, I was thinking of making a LEGO.com Account, but couldn't get a good name. I tried my initials, but that was already taken. I then remembered what they caled me. I used to hate it, but it was better than nothing. Eventually, I became attached to the name, and embraced my inner geekness even more. (Can you tell I'm a geek.) MCLegoboy has now become my Internet Persona.

This is an example of turning a bad time of your life into something good. I felt like it was appropriate to share.

I feel for you.
P.S.:
What does MC stand for? Are those your initials?

I have no idea what MC stands for. My initials are completely different, so I don't know what MC came from.

Having MacDonald as my last name, I just have to be a geek and point out names starting in Mc are Irish, while names starting in Mac are Scottish. Just a cool bit of knowledge for anyone out there.

A few days ago before school, I was looking at Mocpages on my I-pod. A few minutes later, a kid asked to see my I-pod. He then took it and saw what I was looking at and he siad "Really, you still play with Legos".

Just tell 'em to step on a brick.

Then they'll know you're serious.

One positive to still being interested in LEGO... eventual tolerance of LEGO to the foot.

Everyone at school's really good about LEGO. I mean, they say mega-bloks are better to spite me, but only in jest. Plus they really enjoy the stop-motions I make for projects.

In 5th grade I brought a LEGO hummer 2 I'd made for show and tell. Yes in 5th grade. But surprisingly everyone thought it was pretty cool. I'm pretty sure that the only reason though was because I was actually popular at the school. So I can't really vent that much I guess

You don't seem geeky to me, of course I don't really know you. Why were they picking on you in the 4th grade that's like when everyone is playing with Legos.

In 6th grade I brought my Air Raid MOC to school, everyone liked it.

imovie's all messed up. They've changed the minimum clip length to half a second, and I need a tenth of a second for many shots in a stop-motion I'm doing. Just another reason why PC's better.
