2019 Write Up

Well, I figured I would just write a little about some of the low and high points of the year. Well, at the beginning of the year, I was still recovering from my breakup in November of the previous year. I was passed the worst of it, but I was still distraught and would have bad periods lasting a few days at a time that would continue for several months. For some time, my ex had been a driving force in getting me out of the house and experience new things and just be social. I realized at t

A Thought on 2019

A Thought on 2019

It felt like I spent a lot of this year just thinking back on where I was the year beforehand. They say time flies when you're having fun, but I found that this year kinda flew by compared to last, which is saying something considering the "mood" or whatever of the year felt like it started 2 months early for me. (See some blog post I made.)  The last few years have been full of big moments and accomplishments for me, but this year I was mostly trying to just keep everything on track,

Life Updates (Including Brickfair)

Life Updates (Including Brickfair)

So first of all I'm real happy that this old site is back online. BZPower has always been a special place for me and Brickfair has kind of renewed my interest in the Bionicle community, so I'm glad to have it back, and I think the new forum software will eventually turn out to be better than what we were using, even if there are some kinks to work out still. Anyway that Brickfair was one of the greatest experiences I've had in a long time. It felt so good to be totally immersed in such a gr

Breakup

Well, my life has taken a bit of a turn for the worse since my last entry. About 2 weeks ago, my boyfriend and I broke up. It was pretty mutual, we both had the realization at about the same time, but it's still been a very rough time for me. I've felt a lot of different things since then, which I won't go all into, but mainly it's a lot of just missing him and wondering if we made the right choice.   And while I did wonder, I've felt pretty confident that we were better off not being together,

10 Years

So I've been a member here for 10 years? Wow, that's half my life.   In the two years since I last reflected on my membership here a lot has changed. I've been doing a lot in college, and I moved into my first apartment and started working at my first real job with a Surveying firm. I also started my first relationship with my wonderful boyfriend.   BZPower has changed a lot in the last two years too. Maybe activity was a little down at that point, but I don't think I ever would have predicted t

Mafia XLI

If you're reading this, you've probably already seen it, but I'm running a mafia game at the moment and I could really use more players.   Check it out if you're interested.

Couple Remarks

I was going to call this "Couple Updates", but then I realized I was actually giving any updates. But, hey, if you want updates on anything, feel free to ask. I can't say I remember the blogs ever being this empty, especially not on an anniversary week. Oh well, maybe this entry will help that a little. There's a couple cool games over in G&T you should check out if you haven't already. My Hitman: The Hunted and A Splendorous, Most Spectacular Gala by my good friend Rider.

Games and Trivia

I'm hosting a mafia game by that name right now.   We've got several open spots, so come on down and play.

Reflection

I've now been a member of BZPower for over eight years. That's a pretty significant number, so I figured I might as well take a look back at how I got here, and into the fandom in general. Feel free to read it or not.   I was eight years old when I first got into LEGO. I had just finished the second grade, and my parents took me to the to Toys R Us to celebrate. I picked out few Dino Attack sets, not thinking much of it at the time. Pretty soon, I had collected almost the entire line.   It wasn'

Brickfair Highlights

Catching up with people, meeting new people... Breadsticks weren't up to standard, I felt like. Nick Bluetooth dabs on Bionicle's grave. Zatth brings Gorilla MOC; Harambe jokes don't stop for the duration of the con. Come expecting trivia, get bad puns. The Barn, and the games we played there. Million Dollars, But..., Cards Against Humanity, Fibbage, Earwax, Quiplash, Superfight. I fill a bag with orange 1x1 bricks to finish the Onua Uniter Mosaic. Going off the Harambe thing earlier, we

Brickfair 2016

It's so weird that the last time I was at Brickfair, there were still whispers in the shadows as to whether or not Bionicle would come back. And now, it's already gone.   At least I get to go this year.

Iconicness

Despite many changes, each of us usually has one profile image that seems to stick in peoples minds. So, when you think of me, which of my avatars comes to mind first?   A. The Wizard. (Used pre-2013.)   B. JIF Natural Creamy (Used as JIF Natural Creamy.)   C. The Glacier (Used for most of 2013 and some of 2014.)   D. Frost Tiger (Used as Blizard Hazard and for most of last year.)   E. My Feet (Used for most of this year.)   I may go back to one of these or I may find something completely new. I

Brickfair VA

I won't be able to go.   I've been putting off this entry for a while, but someone asked me about it last night, and so I guess I finally need to put that out there. I'm working as an intern at a summer camp all next month. In the coming years, where I'll be an actual paid employee, I'll probably be able to take time off to come up, but that's just not an option right now.   And I doubt I'll even be home in time for this, but I'd like for someone to be ready on that Sunday just in case I can fin

A Top 10 List

Since Bionicle is back and Hero Factory is over, I thought I would make a list of my favorite HF sets:   10. Black Phantom. Black Phantom kicks off our list with his cool ball-on-a-stick design and adorable pet. Truly fitting to be called the Green Nightmare Lord. Only reason he's not higher up is because of his odd bulk and the fact that said pet's legs come off too easy.   9. Evo 2.0. Evo's weapon is just so much more awesome and practical than the other 2.0 heroes. His spike can also be used

Haul

This would have been late even if I posted it when everyone else did.   -Crystal Beast -The Melting Room -Magnifo -Smash Bros. -New Gamecube controller -Viewtiful Joe -Finally, as a surprise: WIIUWIIUWIIUWIIU   Honestly, I have to say that Viewtiful Joe is what I've gotten the most enjoyment out of so far. The new controller works well with it.

Big News

I shaved today.   I was immediately disgusted with my own chin, and will be growing it back.

Brickfair so Far

Day 1: I win a Cars Duplo set at bingo. We do not one, but two reviews of it. A vendor then buys it off me for $20.   Day 2: Galidor. Breadsticks bring it back. I begin gathering Skeletons for my next project. Late at night, Takuma introduces us to a new game.   Day 3: People want to use fake punches in the vine. I refuse to allow such poor craftsmanship. The Yo Yo Piraka collaboration is going at full strength. I get me several good huffs of Kopaka Nuva canister air.   Day 4: The public brings
