to thank @Saphirra for being nice and pointing me twords this thread.
However, while I like all the emojis, I know a whole lot of people cherish them more thand I do and it’s also a way to make them feel… well… like part of this family and I wouldn’t want to rob anyone of that.
While I was rather active in the past, that was a long time ago, and I’ve only been back for 2 days and that shouldn’t give me any kind of points.In the end it is still a pleasure to see that most people here are as nice as I remember them to be. I’m sure @Dudeious.Maximus sees all the other faces of people and for that I don’t envy him…
Long story, short… cookies for everybody!
Those last 2 pictures are swords that I added to my collection this Christmas. I have loved blades for as long as I can remember. This isn’t even my whole collection, I can think of at least 5 more that didn’t make the cut. (Pun intended) lol. Thank you and stay sharp.
For me, there are quite a couple of emojis that are related to me.
Firstly, I was born in the year of the 羊. So I would think this is the most appropriate… and just like it, I am a gentle, harmless little sheep. And if there’s a chance for another emoji… it shall be cos I’m a Pisces!
Ooooo a plot twist! Thanks @Dudeious.Maximus this is fantastic. I’ve loved reading why everyone wants a specific emoji. Can’t wait to read more! What a great way to learn more about each other
Mine won’t be a surprise to most. I’d love the almighty to grant me a
I didn’t start running until later in life, after my youngest was born. It was never something I thought my body could do. I’ve had the bad habit of diving 100% into a new interest or hobby, only to quit when it gets hard. And running has - and always might be - hard for me. But it’s allowed me to push myself in so many ways and make some unbelievable connections. With new and unexpected friendships, with nature, and most importantly, with myself. It’s saved me in a lot of ways when I needed it most.
A new year is often associated with a chance to refocus. A time to start working on being the person you want to be. So with that in mind…
I recently saw an interview with Michael J Fox. The man has Parkinson’s. I am not an expert on the disease, but it seems rather advanced. And yet, he still found the wherewithal to share this little nugget- with gratitude, optimism is possible. If you can find something to be grateful for, you can find a reason to hope.
Thinking on this, I am grateful for all of you. @Dudeious.Maximus - for everything! @Smaug_the_Golden - for inspiration! @Saphirra - for what have got to be some of the coolest blades I’ve seen! (Instantly wondered if you have a “Bruce Wayne” type armor room with all of them displayed. )
And all of the rest of the amazing people who take time to share and connect!
I’d like to win so that I can share it with one of you! Emoji to be named later. Good luck!
