    Late Chrimas and Future Stuff

    Yeah, I'm two days late to the ho-ho-ho party, but hope every one of you had yourselves a splendiforous holiday and continue into the new year without falling flat on your face. It's fun, but it loses its appeal after several years in a row. Keep your resolutions realistic, but be sure taking care of yourself is on there if it isn't already. That stuff's important.

    Here's to You, FiM (Part 2)

    While it is now officially the day of spookiness, expensive costumes and diabetes, I take this time to actually follow up on the thing I said I was going to do. It's kind of weird, committing to something. Anywho, I actually managed to make the video. After that many years out of it, I not only forgot I didn't have video editing software anymore (corrupted hard drive), but that my Internet speeds

    Here's to You, FiM (Part 1)

    Nine years. Has it been that long, already? It feels like just yesterday the fact season three only had thirteen episodes caused some stir because it differed from the first two. Sixty-five episodes? No way they'd end things that soon, and thankfully they didn't. Twilight becoming an alicorn, Starlight making a Mane 7 (kinda), villains both minor and major, so many redemptions, fan

    Hot Minute

    So it's been a while since I've really said anything. A long while. At first it was due to literally no internet or cell service, but then it just turned into, "Eh. What do I even say at this point?" That mentality persisted until recently. There are a few reason this might be: maybe it's because the show is ending soon or because I'm not dead and I just felt like opening my mouth again for those

    Sunny Sunday #4: Pitfalls Part 2: Self-Doubt

    Another Sunday, another day to make sunny. I'm Crysis Commander and welcome to the fourth installment of Sunny Sunday. Last week we took a look at one of the common pitfalls of negative self talk (self-pity), and today we will look at another challenge we may face when conversing with ourselves: self-doubt. Yes, there will be a lot of 'selfs' in these next few installments. Let's get started.

Here's to You, FiM (Part 1) · 5:33am Oct 15th, 2019

Nine years. Has it been that long, already? It feels like just yesterday the fact season three only had thirteen episodes caused some stir because it differed from the first two. Sixty-five episodes? No way they'd end things that soon, and thankfully they didn't. Twilight becoming an alicorn, Starlight making a Mane 7 (kinda), villains both minor and major, so many redemptions, fan theories confirmed/debunked, memes galore and so much more.

I still don't entirely know how to feel.

When the final season was announced, it didn't give the impression that things were actually coming to an end. Even in the past few weeks, there was no sense of impending doom, gloom, or anything in between. Now that the end is here, the freight train finally arrived and collectively slammed into our hearts. Laughter, sorrow, smiling and crying -- lots of crying. It's a barrage of emotions so contrasting and so unbelievable that putting it into describable context is nigh impossible.

It's loss, at its base.

If I told myself ten years ago that I would come to adore a show about cartoon horses that teach lessons in friendship and being a decent person through all its glory and its imperfections, I would have slapped me. If I told myself that not only would I love this show, but it would serve as the main domino towards me making the connections I have, meeting the friends I cherish, and even spurring me towards my passions, I would have slapped me even harder. This was more than a show; this was the key that unlocked a door to the path I currently tread. Through hills and valleys, thick and thin, darkness and light, this show and its community lit the kindling that started it all for me. For that, I am eternally grateful.

Everyone has their story of how they found the show, and that's a story I've already told here long ago. Instead, I will elaborate on how the show both directly and indirectly taught me lessons that I needed to learn to set me on the path I'm on. Am I going to write a novel on this matter? No. I'm going to come out of my cave and make a video (at long last!) so as to put less strain on the eyes. In the next week or two I should have a video made on the matter and will make a Part 2 to this. This show and fandom has impacted every one of us, and hopefully I can illustrate just how deep of an impact that truly is.

I leave you with a song that has, for me, come to represent the fandom, the show and the only real way I know how to express these emotions right now.

Until next time, stay frosty, folks.
