Wind's Weblog > My Identity

Posted -Windrider- on Dec 25 2014 - 01:29 AM

This has been in the works for a while now.

I have not had the gender field on my profile set for some time now, and there is a reason why it has read “Not Telling.” Tonight, however, I am going to specify it.

But I’m terrified. It’s going to take a world of effort for me to change it and to publish this post. I’ve been on this site for over a decade; s...

Wind's Weblog > Today Was a Good Day

Posted -Windrider- on Oct 17 2015 - 12:10 AM

Over half a year ago, I came out as transgender.

Today, October 16th 2015, I sat in a bus anxiously for 30 minutes, after having taught my class, as I was taken through traffic in eastern Philadelphia. Somewhere around 9th and Locust, I pushed my way through the doors to my first appointment.

And if all goes well, I'll be starting hormone therapy in thr...

Designer Dragon's Lair > Day #1 at LEGO

Posted Vezok's Friend on Jan 06 2015 - 03:06 PM


...no, no, not going there ^^ Though I have seen my fair share of spaceships and hundreds of other designs today. The day started relatively early compared to my old job and got interesting immediately as I met my colleague who got hired through the same workshop I attended. We had a camera team at the workshop fil...

The Breakfast Club > I Feel Like Speaking, Part 1: The Ballad of Fabulous Jimmy and Barry O.

Posted Neopolitan on Apr 17 2014 - 07:58 PM

I feel like people don't introduce themselves enough before posts like this, and it makes people think that they're somehow just crusading machines, desperate to spew social justice on people who just want to live their lives without being looked down on their beliefs, and I'm totally okay with that, so before we get started, hiya. I'm Ty. A bunch of you...

Designer Dragon's Lair > Starting work as a LEGO designer.

Posted Vezok's Friend on Jan 04 2015 - 03:52 PM

Happy New Year everybody!

Long time no see, eh? Even longer since I had anything to blog about. But that's about to change.

Tomorrow I'm flying to Denmark to start my new job on Tuesday. Amazing to think that in more or less 48 hours I'll be a part of the LEGO design team in Billund.

Zatth Blag > Rare Disease Day

Posted Zatth on Feb 28 2015 - 04:05 PM

Hey friends!
Today is Rare Disease Day. For those of you who don't know, Rare Diseases are those that (in the U.S) affect less than 200,000 people. Nonetheless, there's over 6,000 Rare Diseases, and this is an important issue for me because I suffer from Autoimmune Polyglandular Syndrome Type 1. Yes, it's the reason why I seem to spend half my time in...

Hundreds of Crimson Seeds > Hostility

Posted Pomegranate on Dec 22 2014 - 06:35 PM

What is it about plastic construction toys that make people so unpleasant?

I'm just trying to have fun and talk about magic robots but I spend most of my time tiptoeing around battlegrounds and eternal grudges, heated disagreements about things nobody has any business even caring about, avoiding saying the wrong keyword of the week like I'm avoiding a la...

The Berenstein Universe > Bring Back Hero Factory Club

Posted Dina Saruyama on Sep 19 2014 - 01:56 PM

So, as of today, Bionicle's return in 2015 is confirmed. Which means LEGO is banning the Hero Factory toyline, even though it's story didn't even get to finish. That's why I want all the fans of Hero Factory to come together and barrage LEGO with complaints. Demand LEGO finish Hero Factory! Bring back my favorite toyline! Force LEGO to repeal the ban on H...

Bio of a BZP Admin > Milestones

Posted Black Six on Aug 05 2015 - 09:55 AM

The past few days have been full of milestones that really have been putting things in perspective for me.

I was born on August 5th, 1987. Today I turn twenty-eight! Go me for surviving this long!

I joined BZPower on August 2nd, 2001. I've been a member for fourteen years now. This site has become a huge part of my life for so many reasons.
