At long last, I’ve decided to make a return to Yaoi Haven Reborn after a couple of years’ time off of it. I think that what made me leave was the fact that I had lost a couple of friends back in 2016, due to me being closed-minded about things. I guess that in a way, I could’ve been more understanding, and so now I realize my mistake. I guess it’s just hard whenever you and those people frequent the same boards and you just keep apart for so long.
And then I recently had to ask a roommate to leave back in October '16 so that me and my roommate could find more affordable housing for ourselves as well. But to be honest, I look at the experiences that I went through, and I think of myself as being better because of them for the most part. Now, I’m pretty much back in the RP game, got new people online that I talk with, folks that I meet up with semi-regularly. But for the most part, I still remember the good times I had with old friends and hold onto a hope that maybe one day we’ll meet again.
One of the things that I’ve finally been able to afford to do, is to get into Third Party Action Figure collecting. Mainly there are companies that are ran by fans who produce figures for fans. My sole hobby is Transformers, and so there are numerous companies like DX9 Toys, Maketoys, Mech Fans Toys, Unique Toys, FansHobby, FansProject, and they all produce their own takes on certain characters from the Transformers Mythos, such as:
Rodimus Prime/Hot Rod
Various Combiner Bots
But the only thing is, to get into this hobby, it can be super expensive unless you know the right people to talk to. In my own case, I have several folks who hook me up through Facebook with the majority of my collection. On another note, I’m looking for RP Partners, so if you’re ever looking for a fun RP session with someone, then feel free to send me a note via PM and I’ll be sure to chat with you about a scene/story idea and we’ll see where it goes!
Good to be back, guys!
