Morning, Leaf~! It's 10AM here so let's both enjoy the sunshine and general feel of the morning. n~n
Anyway, we already have something in common as we've both been playing Pokemon for quite a long time now. Yellow's an awesome game to start with since it was really adorable and the sprites were a huge improvement from Red and Blue, so that's also pretty cool! And as Wind Heart already stated, the Challenges section of the forum would likely be perfect for you as there are a looottt of challenges out there and people are always making more. I recently participated in the Stocking Stuffer event challenge over there; it was very fun and quite successful from what I saw, so all-in-all it's a great section and definitely worth checking out. Then again, so is the whole forum, hehe.
But you cook? I.. I've been learning but there are just so many recipes to try. Baking especially is so hugely fun, what do you think about it? :D Though it's also quite neat that you're an artist, which leads me to ask if you drew your avatar haha. It's really adorable and I've always been fond of pixel icons. Anyway, from what I've read about you so far, you do seem like someone who won't have much trouble at all fitting in here as you seem very friendly. We welcome every new user to the forum with open arms so I'm sure you'll have a great time during your stay here! Would be splendid if you became an active user and stuck around, as there's always room for more.
Have a great time and remember to contact myself or Cid if you have any questions about the forum!
