Dreams, Aspirations, History, and Bionicle Zone Power
Obligatory "I'm feeling nostalgic" entry from boredom or regret or something.
I'm currently a nerd/geek/dork of a relatively high degree, I guess. (Yes, I do mean each of those in a specific, non-synonymic way.) Six(ish) years ago, I was a ten year-old playing with some Lego and playing a bit of Starcraft or Warcraft, maybe. Now I watch anime, read manga, cosplay, game my face off, am a brony and all that entails for me, very occasionally still play with Lego, and am looking to get myself into the seclusive business of voice acting. Interests have changed, but one thing really got me (and my "drug dealer" sis, Novu) to this point.
What was that? (It's pretty obvious, but why not be dramatic? =D)
BZP, of course. One day, I was playing with Lego and was like, "MOM CAN I GET ON THIS SITE THAT VIC (brother) WAS ON YEARS AGO AND IS TOTALLY SAFE AND PLEASE." Surprisingly, she said yes, despite sheltering (whether it was good or not, not mad about that because it really probably was for my good) most everything else. And we got on the site and stuff happened and yeah.
We weren't nerds before then. Now her room looks like a manga store, complete with plenty of action figures, Bionicle sets, and a big ol' Kubikiribocho (Zabuza from Naruto's sword) replica. I've got a hefty list of Steam games and lots of time in League of Legends, along with reading/watching manga/anime/bunches of other things.
BZP revealed this glorious world to us, and definitely loosened Mom's deathgrip. So yeah.
Thanks for being BZP, guys. =3 Sorry that I've become not-really-active-much-at-all-stalker-bro.
