    Issues with the School of Friendship Arc

    I have to admit I'm not fond of the friendship school idea and felt some of the joy of watching the show starting to drop. When the season first started, I was worried the Mane 6 would be pushed to background characters with the students taking over every episode but it wound up not working that way.
  3. I've back and posted a new blog on where I've been.

    This Past Year

    Hi everyone, I didn't realize 8 months had gone by since I was last on the forum. I've been distracted with health issues and I wanted to explain what was going on. Last year I was diagnosed with PCOS, polycystic ovarian syndrome. I was informed I had high levels of testosterone. For several years I've had facial hair and no periods. And for a time I enjoyed these male secondary changes and didn't want to go to the doctor. Then I wound up going to the doctor for something and then they tested my hormone levels and that's how I found out. I was sent to an endocrinologist who wanted to treat my symptoms with estrogen. I was horrified at going on estrogen and knew I had to reveal something I've felt since 2005. I came out as transgender at the doctors and explained tearfully why I couldn't bring myself to go on estrogen. I began to go to a local therapist who specialized in transgender patients and the endocrinologist I was going to referred me to another endocrinologist in Dallas. This doctor treats transgender patients and I really liked her as well as the rest of the staff of UT Southwestern. I discussed with the new doctor what was going on and they ran, over the course of several weeks, blood tests to see how healthy my body was before deciding if I can take testosterone. I also visited a plastic surgeon to talk about having a double mastectomy (top surgery). A date has not been chosen yet although I did choose the month of January 2019 to have it. I was recently approved of taking testosterone and I took my first shot on Wednesday August 8. I'm on a low dose because of my PCOS and I'm taking 50 mg every 2 weeks. I don't expect any changes for awhile. My family has been really supportive and I even had some family members like my dad who weren't surprised in the slightest. I let my supervisor at work know and she's been really supportive as well. She thinks most people at my work will support me because she likes to tell me how much everyone at work likes me. Not sure what else to say at the moment so I'll leave it at there for now. If you guys want me to blog any updates on any changes I've noticed let me know.

    When did you first feel like an adult?

    I'm 34 but still live like a teenager playing video games all day when I'm not working part-time.

    Gaming Favorite Final Fantasy Games

    Final Fantasy 9 is also one of my favorites. The comedy, the cities, and the card game are just a few of my favorite things about the game. For a long time I used to think I'd like to live in a city like Treno but lately I've been into Steampunk and airships so I'm becoming more attached to Lindblum.
  7. I'm looking forward to Detroit: Become Human. It focuses on one of my favorite things, androids.

    Gaming Games that simply make you 'happy'

    I find for me just playing any video game makes me feel happier especially when series favorites release like Dragon Age or Pokemon. I'm not very talkative or social at home but I like to think I'm the most approachable and happiest when I'm playing video games.
  9. I used to sell some of my consoles but over the years I've changed my mind and now I keep all of them instead. I still regret selling my snes and dreamcast a long time ago but at least I have the remade classic snes.

    Gaming Gaming in 80s and 90s.

    I was born in 83 and I feel humbled to have seen how video games have changed from the NES days to what we have now. When Nintendo and Sega were competing it would be frustrating because the same video game title would not look the same. Aladdin is a popular example of how on the SNES and Sega Genesis they looked drastically different. It always blows my mind when someone will complain about the graphics of a current video game and to me it's like "you think that's bad, look at what I grew up with". I even grew up playing some of the obscure Apple II games like Lemonade Stand, Odell Lake, Word Muncher, Mario Teaches Typing, and of course the popular Oregon Trail. Sometimes Nintendo magazine would publish walkthroughs of games and would have the entire levels or maps layed out screen-by-screen or there was a hotline to call that charged money to use.
  14. Not superhero related but does anyone else besides me like to read Archie comic books? I first got hooked on them way back when I was in 5th grade and now I still enjoy them.

    Coco Crusoe talked for the first time!! The episode was pretty good too. I don't have much to say about it for the moment.
