Hey guys. It's Thanksgiving today, and what better time to make a blog entry like this?
No matter what kind of crazy stuff goes on, there are certain constants that i'm always grateful to have. Family is one. Friends are another. Those are things what, by default, you should be thankful for, and I am. I'm also thankful for the fact that even though life can be tough at times, I'm doing alright to the point where I've got a roof over my head and food to eat. That's more than a lot of people can say, sadly.
I'm also thankful for finding this place. Because no matter what happens in the community, we're all a kind of "extended family". It's through you guys on BZPower that I found who I actually am, and met some great friends doing so. It's thanks to you that I now manage The Three Virtues podcast, and it's thanks to you that I help run BioCraft Chronicles. It's thanks to you that I discovered other interests, and it's thanks to you that I learned to have an open mind about life in general. It's thanks to you that I'm who I am.
Contrary to what I may portray sometimes, I don't dislike this place. I'm thankful that I decided to sign up for this website, almost three years ago. I'm thankful to the staff for updating the forums this year (even though it took forever), and I'm thankful to them for getting it back up and functioning. I'm grateful to you guys for sticking to BZP, doing your best to keep BIONICLE alive through discussion. I'm thankful to those of you that like Hero Factory, and I'm thankful to those that don't. I'm thankful for the discussion and debate that the community brings to the table.
I'm thankful for BIONICLE, because without it we would not be here. I'm thankful to Hero Factory, for helping us remain here. I'm thankful to BZPower for being here.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
