Thank You
Thanks to the 20,000 of you who have somehow stumbled upon my little slice of the internet. And a huge thank you to the 500+ of you that stuck around to see what I can create. I know I say it, every 1,000 views it seems, and it's insanely cliche, but I really couldn't do all this without the support of everyone. People enjoying what I do makes me enjoy what I do and gets me motivated to create new things for others to enjoy.

Birthday
Yes, it be true. A week from today and it'll be my final year as a teenager. I would say something like "oh, what a ride it's been" or "oh, the memories", but to be honest, it hasn't been that full action-packed, AD-HD spurred, never-look-back experience that other people may have had. To be honest, the last year of middle school and the first two of high school are just a blur. Mixed in with a few stand-out memories, it's just time that went by. I can't tell you what I did in my free time for those few years, and it's likely I never will be able to.

The true extra-curricular activities that I can tell you about happened junior year, when I first got into MLP. Finding a show that had an insanely strong fanbase that created things beyond my imagination was spectacular, and I wanted to be a part of it. It's hard to believe that I've spent almost three years now watching a cartoon with colorful horses, and witnessing the fandom exploding and subsiding over many issues that don't really matter in the end. Regardless, this is where I feel accepted and I'm glad I can bring my wallpapers to everyone. It's my gift to you every week (or so... ^^;)

My birthday also marks the day I "came out" of the brony closet; something I still regret doing to this day. I posted on Facebook that I was a brony and my friends thought I had gone crazy because I don't come off as the type of guy that would like that sort of thing. I knew I had made a mistake when I felt this surge of embarrassment rush through me when my mom asked me what a brony was. I wasn't ready for the attention that I had given myself and that's why I'm back in the "brony closet". Everyone has forgotten that I like MLP and I'm not quick to correct them.

Rant
On the topic of the "brony closet", why should I be so scared to tell people that I watch MLP? Why is it such a social pariah to watch a show initially intended for a much younger audience of the other gender? Why are bronies looked down upon by the whole of the internet? What is so wrong about it? One of my friends here I've known since freshman year of high school. At the time, he was obsessed with planes, and in fact wants to be a pilot. He loved playing Battlefield 2, then Battlefield 3, now Battlefield 4, like me, has a love of cars (Ferrari's, mostly), and recently got him and myself into Formula 1. Somewhat of a month or so ago, we decided to watch Frozen, because the internet raved about it and we wanted to see what all the fuss was about (sound familiar?). He fell in love with the movie and everything that came with it: the songs, the art, the reaction gifs. Etc. I'm not saying that Frozen was a terrible movie, or that he shouldn't like it, but why is it that he, an 18-year-old guy, can like Frozen (a movie with magic, princesses, romance, catchy songs, witty humor, and spectacular animation), and I, an 18-year-old guy, am looked down upon, outcast, made fun of, what have you for liking My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (a show with magic, princesses, romance, catchy songs, witty humor, and spectacular animation)? That is what I don't understand.

Until next time,
-RDb

18-year-old Brony who's been a fan of the show for over a year, hence the username. I'm a fan of collegiate basketball, collegiate and professional football, world competition soccer, and NASCAR. My other passion besides ponies is cars. New or old, it doesn't matter; I'm a fan of both. I am a Freshman at UNC Charlotte studying Meteorology/Atmospheric Sciences. I am a Hobbyist Digital Artist specializing in pony wallpapers.
