Work sent me on a 5-day technology extravaganza to Ohio.
I will say I was less than thrilled at the notion of going to a freezing state in the beginning of February. Nonetheless, the constant buzz of people during the 3-day conference kept me energized.
During set up I got to get a real taste of Americana. The weekend before our conference coincided with a Anime convention for teens. Kids were dressed up as Rainbow Bright, Pichachu, and other characters I will never know nor care to know. Makes me nervous to think of the state of America's youth. In addition to the tween gaming expo, there was also a cheerleading tournament. Honestly, people watching during Saturday and Sunday was the most excitement I'd gotten the whole time.
I couldn't find a dang thing to do near my hotel, but at the same time, I was too tired after a whole day of chatting people up to explore.
It's perhaps sad, but there are definitely places in this world that are not on my radar to visit. Ohio was one of them. Can't say I disagree with that notion after I've been there.
Here are others:
North and South Dakota
I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
I'm not trying to be a snot. I swear.
