I wish I could get the energy, will, and general motivation to go to stuff like this. A lot of these panels sound really, really fun, especially the worldbuilding one and the Hero's Journey one. I've always been really interested in those two subjects; if you learn anything cool/substantial, could you share the basics with us/me?

Hey your going to the Mormon capital of the world! Let me say that we Mormons don't spare any expense when it comes to architecture and since it's all been built in the past 2 1/2 centuries it all looks quite contemporary. You should go to the slat lake city temple as they give very cool tours and such. But this is religion so you may not like it and such but hey I'd find it cool even If I wasn't religious. (It's the place I've traveled to the most in the states so I know my way around.)

You realize I have lived in Utah about 95% of my life and that I am LDS right?

 

Okay I admit knowing I am LDS is unlikely as I don't believe I have brought it up, but I am nearly certain I have somewhere here that I am from Utah.

 

Of any case thank you the welcome and infirmation :)

Call me stupid, but what does LDS stand for?

It is taken from Latter-day Saints, part of the Church's full name: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

Hey! Another member sweet! Everywhere on the internet I always think of myself as the only LDS member present. Just because it's so vulgar and harsh. It's not very hospitable to us is it. And everyone I know who is a member just sits on Facebook and Instagram which I don't use, so that's another reason why I didn't even think that someone else could be a member too. :squee:
