My name is Simonas . I am 19 year old LEGO builder. I enjoy building various Bionicle + Technic related mocs (usually characters). Some of my not related with LEGO interests would be reading fantasy books, learning new languages, meeting new people with the same interests.
At this point of my life I can truly say that LEGO has affected my life in a good way. Being able to build MOC's meant that I can have a sense of control. You may ask why? The truth is that because of my lifelong speech disorder - stuttering I couldn't control it as I would want to. It is up today, yet I'm getting better and better. I can say that this hobby in LEGO gave me some kind of control and happiness feeling which as a stutterer I could not achieve. It gave me a sense of accomplishment. Today I'm still stuttering, still building and despite any restrictions I try to keep my head up and move forward :)

I'd like to think that over the several years of building, I have managed to grow up in this LEGO community as a bright person.
In 2012 I decided to leave this hobby of mine and decided to take a short 1 year brake. Then in 2013 I joined Mocpages again and since then I have tried to improve more than anytime in the past taking into consideration all the circumstances (lack of time, no ideas, etc). I started to build more qualified things, that was the only requirement for the improvement. My desire to get better inspired me even harder.
This site is an inspiration it self whatsoever. Being able to see so many goods creations, different builds, new ideas, etc gives you an urgent desire to improve and be an inspiration figure to others. This is what I think of LEGO is all about - to be an inspiration to someone.
