You know, I was a ponyfag for 6 years. I always cringed at the people who were like " THIS SHOW CHANGED MY LIFE" "WTF I LOVE FRIENDSHIP NOW". I never really felt any relation to it because I was lucky enough to be socially awkward but have many friends and acquaintances that had a positive view of me. I barely had any enemies in high school, and I was semi popular by having a weird sense of humor and never being a prick to anyone.
But this show? This show and all the interpersonal and intrapersonal relationship stuff is ripping me apart. The way Marco spent 10 years nodding, his social awkwardness, his desire to spread his wings and find adventure despite his neurotic cautiousness, the fact that his parents weren't around as much as he'd have liked. And he steps in front of himself every which way. I can't even begin to say how much I relate to it.
Star reminds me of myself too, the younger part of me that I squashed throughout the years. It was the part of me that made people like me. That energetic, eccentric, fuckup personality. The loud, spontaneous, but deeply caring and loving individual. The crazy kid everyone thought was funny that never seemed to fit into any one group. That was me, before I grew to be very cynical over years and years of pain and confusion. I identify so much with Marco and Star that I feel like I'm their neurotic kid or something.
I'm not saying any of this lightly, but this show actually made me realize how alone I truly am, and that if I want to find a girl even half as good as Star, its time to buckle up and get my ass in gear.
I will though. I will find a girl like her one day. Its not a matter of if, its when.
Sorry, but I've been silent on this for a long time, I had to finally say this to you guys.
