    ๐“–๐“พ๐“ฎ๐“ผ๐“ผ ๐”€๐“ฑ๐“ธ'๐“ผ ๐“ซ๐“ช๐“ฌ๐“ด~? So I suppose you all missed me quite a bit, huh? Jokes aside... boy, that was one Hell of a week... it rained pretty much every day, a trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters released, I experienced more mood whiplash than I have in ages, I ended up getting a pretty wretched headache yesterday, and I even started to play Batman: Akrham Knight again (which I'm quite enjoying so far). I'll admit; I wasn't feeling very well for a majority of the week... but if today is anything to go by, then that's water under the bridge now! So, with that out of the way... good morning, guys and gals! How were your weeks while I was away?

    Starting a blog like this is pretty difficult, since there isn't a good place to start... so with that said, let me just get straight to the point, instead of just meandering about. Ever since I started homeschool in 3rd grade... I've developed a habit of sorts. I'm not sure if going to a public school would have prevented this, bus that's besides the point. Basically, I don't take long-term breaks. Sure, I'll take 30 minutes off of my assignments to grab a meal, but that doesn't mean that I'll stop doing them that day, even during the late hours of the night. Perhaps I'm a workaholic? Who knows. Regardless... this habit always makes me reach the same outcome in my personal interest in hobbies, and I don't want it to happen again. What is this process that I'm referring to? Well, it goes hand-in-hand with how I don't take breaks, and this has become a pretty consistent (and most likely unhealthy) series of events. So, basically... I start a hobby, or take part in some sort of activity, usually specializing in one thing. For example, I'll start watching movies in a certain franchise, play games in a certain franchise... you get the idea. When I develop an interest, I go all out, basically. When I start getting involved in these interests, I start vehemently keeping up with them; I join their Forums, I buy the merchandise, I watch the movies, I play the video games, etc. and etc.. This is where the "no-breaks" tendency of mine comes in. When I stat getting tired of the hobby... I don't take a break from it, I just keep pursuing it. The process goes like this: I do something new, and I love it. I continue to do the thing, and I love it. I continue to do the thing, and I love it. Then my first sign of burnout comes along; I get a little bit tired of it. Normally, someone would take a short break when they reach this stage... but not me. So I continue to do the thing, and I like it. I continue to do the thing, and I like it. I continue to do the thing, and I like it. Then my second burnout phase comes along. Even if someone was pretty persistent, they would probably realize that they needed to throw in the towel for a little bit... but you know me better than that. So, I continue to do the thing... and it's alright. I continue to do the thing... and it's alright. I continue to do the thing... and it's alright. Inevitably, my third burnout phase comes along. At this point, it's pretty much vital to take a break from the activity, or I run the serious risk of never wanting to come back to it... but, worst case scenario... I persist. So, for some odd reason... I continue to do the thing... and I hate it. I continue to do the thing... and I hate it. I continue to do the thing... and I hate it. And then, my fourth burnout phase comes along... but it's different this time. I'm not merely burned out on doing it anymore, I'm absolutely incinerated. Any chance of me ever coming back to a hobby which I've reached this stage with is infinitesimal. This is basically what happened with me and video games; I just kept going at it again and again and again and again... completely ignoring the outright displeasure I was taking in the activity... and it was too late by the time I decided to stop. It has been 8 months since I've last touched a video game... and I still dread the thought on some level. I'll admit that a few games have piqued my curiosity... but those are fleeting at best. Regardless, I'm sure you get the idea by now. I'm sure that you realized that I bolded one of those lines, right? Well, that's what stage I'm in with the Forums. If I don't just take a step back now... I'm going to regret it. So, with that said... I'm going to be taking a break for a while. I can't say how long I'll be away, but I'll estimate a week or so. I want to leave the Forums on a high note, rather than repeat history. I've burned out on YouTube videos, I've burned out on some varieties of music, I've burned out on Godzilla movies, I've nigh-irrecoverably burned out on video games... I'm sure you understand by now. I'm always left a hollow shell after those burnouts as well. Maybe it's just because I have so little going on that any distraction needs to last as long as possible to make me feel a sense of purpose... I don't know. Either way, I've been locking myself in a vicious cycle ever since I was young of becoming a hollow shell, finding a truly fulfilling interest, and then becoming a hollow shell again... which leads to me starting back at Square One. The Forums have been some of the best times I've ever had on the internet... and I don't want to grow sour to them. I don't want them to just be yet another hobby which I'll throw into the recycling bin after I'm finished with it. So, with all that said... ๐“ข๐“ฝ๐“ช๐”‚, ๐“ฏ๐“ช๐“ซ๐“พ๐“ต๐“ธ๐“พ๐“ผ, ๐“ฎ๐“ฟ๐“ฎ๐“ป๐”‚๐“ธ๐“ท๐“ฎ~! ๐“˜'๐“ต๐“ต ๐“ผ๐“ฎ๐“ฎ ๐”‚๐“ธ๐“พ ๐“ช๐“ต๐“ต ๐“ผ๐“ธ๐“ธ๐“ท~!

    Alrighty then, I'm sure you all know what time it is, so I suppose I ought to head off to bed. I'll be honest... life hasn't been treating me well as of lately. I won't go into any specific details... but every day seems to bring something along to bring me down. I suppose you could view it as a test of character... and if that's truly the case, then I have no intention of failing. Either way... Have a great rest of your night, everyone! I'm looking forward to seeing you all in the morning!

    Alrighty then, that ought to do it for today, so i suppose I should head off to bed once again. So... yup, that makes yet another mundane day. The most noteworthy thing is how indecisive Mother Nature was today; it got cloudy, then sunny, then cloudy, then I started hearing thunderclaps, then it returned to sunny, then it started raining a bit... it was madness. Everything seems to have cleared up for now, though... though I'm sure tomorrow will bring yet another... series of events, such as those. Either way... Have a great rest of your night, everyone! I'm looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow!

    Alrighty then, I suppose that's a wrap for today, so I'll be heading off to bed soon. Today was a pretty unremarkable day... which is a lot better than I was initially doing at the start of the week, to be perfectly honest. When i say "a mundane day is better than a cruddy one," I truly mean it. Of course, mundane days aren't ideal either, due to the fact that not much interesting happens... but hey, baby steps, you know? Either way... Have a great rest of your night, everyone! I'm looking forward to seeing you all in the morning!

    Hah, I'm using the same artist in my profile picture as @Jeric. I have to say, good choice of an artist. Anyways, today has been an eventful day for myself. Lots of good and bad stuff happened today and I'll leave it at that. Have a goodnight everyone and I'll see you all tomorrow.

    I may or may not have the mind of a child. I'm fascinated by the light from my monitor reflecting off my tea.

    Sorry for another status update so soon after the last one but I'm having a hardcore nostalgic trip to Season 4 of the show. The season is special to me since it was the first one that I actually saw live. Here is a song from 2014 that I also remember

    Hey everypony! Sorry again for not being active, preparing to travel. When Iโ€™m in Belgium I probably wonโ€™t be online very often, so donโ€™t worry about me for the next three weeks!

  21. While rogue banditos are commonly seen as enemies of the peace, there are those who work to uphold the law in their own right. Their methods and ideals may differ, even clash, but they work to bring about a common goal. Few times do these unsung heroes get the recognition they may deserve... Until a certain @Harper entered the scene. -- Rest assured folks, this bandit is not like the usual flare. @Harper has graciously put her hooves forward to join the ranks of MLP Forums Sectional team, and will provide a watchful eye and intuitive expertise to the vast, untamed lands of Beyond Equestria. In fact, she seemed rather confident about the challenges at first: But I know it won't take long before she'll end up: So go easy on her, folks. All the best to you in your new role, Harper!
  22. Hi everyone ! I'm Akemi, a 18 years old girl who likes MLP, like you all ! As I say in the title I'm french, so I'm not an english native speaker. I hope it's fine, I will try to not make too much mistakes but I hope you'll forgive me if my english isn't perfect I'm a real fan of planes, orcas (they're my favorite animal) and I also like drawing a lot, but I never really tried to draw ponies and MLP stuff ^v^ I'm currently at the Season 8 episode 3 in the serie :3 What could I say more .... My favorites characters maybe ? Well the mains characters of the serie aren't my favorites, I really like Discord, Zekora, Starlight more than Mane6 but in the Mane6 I think my favorite is Rainbow Dash ^w^ (I also like Applejack a lot). I think that's all ! If you have any questions about me, don't hesistate :3 I hope too see you soon on the forum

    Greetings everypony, I hope that the day (or the night, you know, no discrimination), is treating you blissfully. Sweet Celestia, it feels like an eternity since I booped my last snoot.
