SuperListenMode 198: Summary of my GCAP feelings over the years

I am not criticising anyone for GCAP! I’m just growing out of being an introverted hermit over the years as I throw myself into the deep end at crowded industry events.

Social Practice towards better Emotional Intelligence?

This comic is embarrassing because of my insecurities, low self esteem and silly feelings. But it’s okay to feel out of place. I still do. I just focus on what I do have, accept my times of struggle and keep working at it. Who really does completely belong – we’re all weird and wonderful :’)

These are summaries of my GCAP blog posts actually!

Just my own personal struggles and growth with industry events,
drinking culture,
late night parties,
feeling like a lonely alien nobody,
learning from speakers,
making sure I get some breaks away from people,
making sure I eat something,
accept that people come and go at these things and you might never actually talk or catch up because everyone’s exhausted,
breakfast/lunch catch ups are the best,
trying to follow up with people and sometimes it doesn’t work out,
saying no to almost all night parties,
being okay if people ignore you or are too busy
and trying to not take it seriously.


As I said in my MIGW17 blog post, 2017 was the first time I felt better about all this in taking all these passing feelings in stride. I’m getting more comfortable saying hello to people too sometimes…while my self confidence goes up and down!

Gosh! Super appreciated the friendly hugs too <3 It’s probably just luck though so again I’m not going to expect anything this year…I just want to learn and say hi to people when I feel able ;P

Maybe I’ll see you around this year’s Games Week. Maybe! Games Week tends to be super crowded and it’s the bane of my existence if I don’t take care of my energy levels. :’) You could be too busy to talk to me anyhow :’)

I’m actually planning to be around PAXAus for just one day instead depending on commitments. I’ve gone every year for all 3 days since it started and going all 3 days is not for me anymore.
I’m so done and tired by that level of commitment now.
I’m done…1 day is enough for me.
I got better things to do! ;D

PS: Hey I’m posting full length SuperListenMode comics here!

Starting to post SuperListenMode comics individually here so:

  • peeps can comment here below without being tied to a social media platform ;D
  • I can finally tag and organise the comics here
  • Twitter doesn’t allow me to post these personal essays that come along with these sometimes haha
  • I don’t want my comics get lost into the social media void whenever I want to link to them directly – this will help tremendously

Leaving Instagram with my semi mega long posts because links are prohibited there. But even instagram has its character limits!

Here will be where the full post shall be from now on!

I hope this change is okay with you <3
