Ok, here goes.
I am a very shy person, and my New Years resolution this year was to make a real effort to meet more people.
Over the last month or so, I have made very little progress in this area IRL, mostly for reasons beyond my control. So, although I have lived up to my promise to “try” I have almost nothing to show for it.
Therefore, I have decided to to try to be more outgoing here. After all, I can reach a lot more Dopers in a day than I can “real” folk.
So, even though I’ve been here for awhile, I’ve decided to “introduce” myself.
All about me:
Let’s see, I’m 23, single and I live alone. I don’t have any kids, but I have a niece and a goddaughter that I borrow regularly. (I frequently refer to these children as spawnlings). I spell very badly.
For work I do product support for a company that sells chemicals for research. The rest of the time, I like to read, anything with words… I also like to sew, and do a bunch of different creative things. I really like the experience of taking a bunch of unimpposing starting material and making something that is useful, or appealing. I am also involved in Living history, and I will take any excuse to play outside.
Most importantly, I have not grown up, and really don’t want to.
Well, that’s all I can think of (I’m not real good at starting conversations). I am glad to have had the oppertunity to “meet” you all. and I will be happy to “talk” to anyone who responds (I only have a computer at work, so unfortunately, ICQ and AIM are out for me).
Thanks for listening,
PS As I said, I only have access at work, so please be patient if it takes me a bit of time to respond.
