wow look i'm returning to bzpower for a hot second to see what's up after x years away! i am super unique in this aspect! look how subversive and cool i am! in all seriousness thought i'd come back here for a hot second and say hey. was never super active in the community but had a lot of good memories from here, and this site actually taught me some about interacting with people. i'm super grateful for both of those things, and i'd like to say that things in my life are good, not great but go
(as in "metal... GEAR??) So apparently last Wednesday was my 10 year anniversary on BZPower. Which is pretty weird to think about. I've certainly learned a lot since then. And I'm an adult now?? Seems really long ago. A lot has changed. I've changed. Maybe when I'm bothered to actually get off of my butt and do something I'll write a bit about what all that means and what's going on in my life. In the meantime, I'll slink back into on-and-off activity. Cheers!
okay so there will be a life update here sometime soon because a lot has happened and most of it is good and exciting however i need some important advice on a pokemon thing so i got red on my 3ds and because i am trash i did the mew glitch not sure whether i'll be able to transfer it to SuMo yet but what do you guys think i should name the thing? suggestions gogogo
So I turned/am turning 18 today. A bit of a weird feeling. My childhood is officially over. Made me think about things a little more than I'm comfortable with. On the other hand, I bought a rad as heck cardigan, I'm spending the day in Chicago, and I'm on my way to see my brother for the first time in a while. So for now, things are good, I think. Stay tuned for updates.
I haven't played any of the Fallout games before, but I got caught up in my friends' hype over Fallout 4 and I have to say it looks like the kind of game I would like. It's got intense customization of both character skills and character appearance, and it gives plenty of room for your character to develop and grow if you want to roleplay- at least, from what I've seen and heard of it. Plus the setting and aesthetic seem unique enough, so... Do you think I should get my first Fallout game by b
Ever feel like despite everything you do, you just can't get control over life? The past few months (two months, really) have been awful, to say the least. Just as I get a handle on having a good group of close friends and being confident in myself, senior year hits me like a wall. AP classes and college apps are pushing me to my breaking point, and it's been really hard. My self-esteem issues that I thought I had banished to the recesses of my mind have flared up something nasty again. I've t
So I've been slowly touching up a few of the MOCs that have been collecting dust on my shelf, and there's been a problem with one that I can't seem to fix. PICTURE I've been stuck on how to armor the forearm in a way that's not too obtrusive but still covers it. Most ways that I've tried either stick out too much or aren't white (which is the color scheme of the MOC in question). So I'm looking for suggestions. Any ideas would be much appreciated.
(note: most of these pertain to movies, video games, etc. so don't keep reading if that's not yo thang) I want: -Marvel Studios to purchase the rights to Fantastic Four back, but do nothing much with the actual Fantastic Four themselves. Rather, give Doctor Doom a solo movie that leads into Avengers 4, in which he's the main villain. In said movie, he's presented at first as a sympathetic child born from tragedy (his mother gets killed in a deal with the devil I mean that kinda sucks). It ma
I always thought that the whole concept of Shadow Matoran during 2008 was really bland. A leech attaches on to them and drains their "inner light" and suddenly they're evil and a flying thing has to scream at them so they can be good again and yes right okay Wouldn't it have been more interesting if the Makuta had come in and like persuaded them to abandon their faith in Mata Nui? Which I suppose would have been hard right after Matoro used the MoLife to resurrect Mata Nui, but disillusionment
So after a few days of hatching Charmander eggs, I got lucky and got this guy. Literally did a double take when I realized he was shiny. 5 IV, but not exactly the 5 IVs I was looking for- I got Attack instead of HP (I'm gonna train him to be a special glass cannon or something) but that's not too consequential. However, I'm at a loss for what to name him, so please write some suggestions for me in the comments! Keep in mind that he'll be a Charizard someday. Looking from anything from cool to
-so finals are approaching, i'm taking 2 ap tests, and so logically the best option is to cram as much schoolwork down student's throats as possible -I'm taking part in the day of silence this Friday! As a part of my high school's Allies Club, I'm making a more conscious effort to be informed and to take a more active part in promoting equality, so I won't be talking to anyone or interacting with anyone outside of what's required for school for the entire school day. I'm friends with one of th
So a few days ago I made my 800th post even though I've been here since 2006. Which is like nine years. whaaaaAaAaAAaat am i even doing I need to get back on that, I guess. But I have the Stars Hau so that's cool. One more year until Hapori Tohu!
So this is the week of everything. Which sounds like every week in high school but. Tomorrow we test our physics project: a windmill that, when powered by a fan, has to lift a 100 gram weight one meter off of the ground. The catch: we're graded by our time; the person whose windmill lifts the weight in the shortest amount of time gets a 100%, and the rest of the grades are based off of that. The lowest time gets, at most, an 80%. It's worth three lab grades. While I get why the project is grad
So my promposal got turned down today. Kind of, I didn't even get to ask, she avoided me in the morning when I was gonna ask her and I later had to find out second-hand that she was going to say no if I asked. She never told me up front. Gave the flowers to my mom so I guess that's nice. Don't worry too much about me, I'm handling it as best I can. And today I got to see how much my friends really cared about me, which was incredibly heartwarming. If anyone has any corny jokes, puns, gifs, or
First off, hi there! Been a while. I'll post a life-update thing soon-ish. Anyways, my high-school orchestra conductor may be one of the nicest, most supportive people I have ever met or will ever meet. He's an older man, but he's always full of a joyful energy and can often be seen with a huge grin across his face. He always tells us that he loves us and that we're his favorites, and it's one of the most adorable, fulfilling things to hear him talk. So a few days ago (last Friday, to be exa
“Charlie, Eoin, you need to get out of there!” The mantis cringed at the Captain’s voice screaming through his earpiece, which was more than a little too loud for his liking. He turned to his companion, a fearsome gray lanius who was taking quite a bit of satisfaction from destroying his surroundings. “But Captain,” Charlie gleefully chuckled as he ripped a control panel out of the wall, “Eoin and I are having so much fun! Such work is indeed its own reward.” “Speak for yourself, buddy. I’
It's cold outside! Not cold enough to snow where I'm at, unfortunately, but it's still pretty darned cold! So try to spread some warmth! Smile, laugh, be happy. When you talk to someone, don't frown, try to give them some cheer! Because being warm is certainly a lot more fun than being cold. It's the holidays, everyone! Be excellent to people! Happy holidays, BZP! <3 Love, Cyrix
So I stumbled upon XCOM: Enemy Unknown while mindlessly browsing the Steam Store. Once I looked at it, I was A. bewildered that I had never seen this before and assumed that this rock I had been living under was in fact hindering my knowledge of the outside world and B. instantly hooked. I tried to tell myself that I would wait until the Winter Sale to nab it. I caved. It's downloading now. I'm cautiously optimistic, so you guys tell me: was it worth? #worth, even?
Today is my birthday! Not gonna lie, it was pretty great. Today was the second and final day of a school retreat I took, which was honestly one of the most inspirational and transformative experiences I have ever been on. Stuff got deep and I got a lot of things off of my chest that I had been keeping in, plus I made new relationships and strengthened those that I already had. It was a day full of love and smiles and hugs and happiness and I just love people. So, overall, one of the best birth
