Like many of you, life took me for a roller coaster ride away from AFI for many years. I moved to China, listened only to C-pop and K-pop and taught English for a while. Then I came back to the States and before I knew it I was married!
Now I’m in Boston, trying to “adult” among people I don’t culturally fit in with, and finding it a passionless endeavor. That’s why I’m rediscovering AFI, who gave me purpose through my teen years. This community feels like home for me, where I know who I am.
Thank you @STORMS for keeping the forum alive! Too bad the official forum is no more.
Funny story, when I was trying to find the forum just now I searched for “AFI forum” and got a bunch of other stuff. So I tried “a fire inside forum” and one of the result pages was titled “Why Don’t Igloos Melt When There’s A Fire Inside?”
