By early days, I'm talking about S1 -S3. Year 2010-early 2013. I just want to know what you think and if you have felt the same thing as I have. I'm very strong and passionate about my obsessions. Like I get really serious about a series or hobby and my obsessions are long term. I've been a proud brony for 3 and a half years and I've been a huge fan of Pirates of the Caribbean ever since the first movie. I'm starting to feel effects of being involved in fandoms for a long time. It seems that these fandoms just kind of die and I feel like the only person who is still standing strong. A lot of people I knew in these fandoms when I first joined moved on to another obsession or fandom. The fandoms I'm in are getting old and I've been watching them be replaced by new ones. I've easily felt it every time I walk into a Hot Topic. Each time I walk in there are less and less pony merchandise and the wall where the MLP section was has been replaced by The Avengers and Doctor Who. Don't get me wrong, MLP is still popular and the brony fandom is getting bigger everyday. Idk. I became a brony during season 2 when the fandom was at it's peak. I guess I just miss the fandom the way it used to be when I first joined. How do you feel? Do you miss that peak? When everyone shit themselves over Derpy, AliTwi, and EQG?
I know I already have posted this a while ago today: https://mlpforums.com/topic/142190-stock-investing-is-it-worth-it/. However, I want to make the right decision here for what I personally should invest in, in order to have a stable financial future and to have some piece of mind in a financial sense. I personally do not want to waste too much time looking into investing in the stock market multiple times because I found out that you need to be pretty committed to do well if you were to invest in the stocks by yourself. Which is why I have also heard about Mutual Funds which is supposed to make stock investments more easier to manage than if you were to handle the stocks by yourself because they are handled by professionals who know their stuff ahead of time. Take me for example: As I am already too busy as a college student trying to get the best out of my education and I also have lots of plans for what I want to do for and with my production company and YouTube channels, I know that money is definitely going to be (or can already be) an issue for me. I can already label myself as an entrepreneur by now. Yes, I know that work through labour is a way to earn money. However, currently as of the time I have posted this, I cannot afford to waste my time trying to apply for a part-time job when I know there are other options out there (especially since I have admittedly procrastinated on some assignments I need to get caught up on ). You may correct anything I may have said incorrect about Stocks and Mutual Funds if you need to, to get your point across (and that I may correct this OP for clarification). Another thing to note is that I personally do not want to borrow money from loans because I have gotten into a small amount of debt a couple of times before with my bank account (going negative) and I freaked out a little when it happened to me and I never want to get in the negative with my bank account (even with my credit card for that matter) ever again. I have vowed myself to never get into serious debt of any amount (unless there should be a good reason that I should not have to worry too much about debt), which means that I can honestly be stingy with my funds at times. I would like to hear what you guys think and what you may suggest for people like me and also options which are more suitable to other people in different walks of life. Post away! Note: Please be respectful, I do not want debates to flame up in this thread. Let's keep this thread polite, friendly and courteous. Criticism is welcomed, just don't forget to give your reasoning as to why you are being critical in the first place.
