For me, I came across pony in a time of my life where I was both bored and transitioning my mindset from that of a child to an adult. In this weird interim period, the idea that I could do what I wanted no matter what other people said was a new, baffling concept to me. I think that MLP and my watching of it was an extension of this. So what if someone disapproves of a show I watch? I'm likely not going to please them even if I don't watch the show anyway. It was a very freeing concept to me, and hey, the old online forum I was on was dying and I wanted a new community to chill with.
I don't regret my time as a Brony; I made some great friends along the way. And I'm not shunning MLP or anything like that; I still have some art and merch lying around that I like. I may even watch an episode or two from time to time.
All this to say: the ride was fun, guys. Keep rocking on, and thanks to EqD and the Bronies I interacted with for making it enjoyable. I'm moving on.
Also how many tally marks total, Saber? I NEED TO KNOW!
Obligatory ripped off saberspark/NASCAR sucks
I know I tend to get overly cynical from time to time, especially on the Internet. I don't think it's ultimately healthy. The less good you expect to see in others, the less you see the good. And it's crazy easy to get bitter for no real reason. I took a step back from the Brony community basically because of this, and it's done wonders for my enjoyment of the show and community at large.
