Hi Everyone! :grin:

So, I've been gone for a while, and I've noticed a lot of new faces around here.

If you could have any superpower, what would you choose? OMG GOOD QUESTION. I think flying, of course, but yet again, who wouldn't? The part of my superhero life i'm mostly looking forward to would be the martial arts training though, so i don't know about the powers.

I'm very short, like 5'1", and in cm that would 155. I am also the proof of the stereotype that "short people are always combative and aggressive, especially about their height". I'm sorry rest of short people :| (although i'm one of the few short people i know who are like that, most of the others are just very chill about it, girls or boys)
