Growing up as a young kid Lego has always been my number one interest, I was just too crazy for those little bricks. My interest surpassed those of my classmates who seem to "grow out" of lego by 11 or 12 years old. I was 14 and still going strong. I began to explore other mediums such as brick filming and simply could not see myself giving it up. It was part of me. Now 19 going on 20, I seemed to have unintentionally walked away from my lego hobby, occupied with other interests and relationships. After all, isn't setting aside our toys just part of growing up? Or does it have to be? Despite this something refuses to allow me to sell or get rid of my lego collection. Something still pesters me from time to time, just itching to make another brick film or build a new MOC. I will find myself unintentionally watching brickfilms and MOC videos on youtube out of sheer curiosity, or something more. I understand I am in the midst of one of the most dangerous times for dark ages and I wanted to ask how you combat your dark ages, what your experiences have been like, or anything dark ages related. I hate to say I am embarrassed to continue this hobby, but as a college student the feedback I could expect to get from my peers is inevitably negative. Any and all experiences are welcome!
I went to Argos (a UK retailer) a few months ago, when I went in and bought the Star Wars advent calendar, the woman serving me was giving me this "you're special, aren't you" kind of look, needless to say it was awkward. Whenever I buy a set, even if I'm in the recommended age range for a particular set, I still get a weird look from the cashier. I am a TFOL, and I know that AFOLs get it much worse, but AFOLs do have the advantage of other people assuming that they're buying it for their kid. Before I just bought primarily Bionicle and Star Wars, but know that I'm interested in getting Nexo Knights sets, it's gonna get worse.
