Long time lurker, first time poster
« on: December 26, 2012, 01:07:11 am »
Hello everyone!

I've been a (fairly) regular reader of this board for several years.  I've finally decided to try to make some friends!

I'm currently living on a tropical island in the Pacific (not HI), and going through hell in my personal life.  I'll try not to dwell on that....  

To be honest, I'm a bit nervous about being here.  I'm naturally shy, having had a very strict Christian upbringing that has followed me into adulthood.  I've lived in the broom closet for a very long time, and still dare not let on to anyone about my beliefs.  In fact, my mother gave me a Bible for Christmas yesterday!

I work as an environmental scientist, so I'm trying to be a good person to our Earth.  I love to travel.  I just spent some time in Australia this summer and had a great time.  I love to cook.  I'm always trying to tweak a recipe.  Currently I've been working on a chicken french recipe, and I've just discovered chocolate pate.  Think I'll have to spend time perfecting it!

I'm also rather new to figuring out a board like this.... lots of symbols to learn...:confused: Did I do that right!? Hah!  I'll figure it out, but I'm sure I'll screw up a bit first!

Welcome to the board! I'm pretty new to talking myself, but everyone has been friendly so far. I'm sure you'll get the hang of the board in no time. :)

Hello! I am new too. Like you, I hope to make new friends here as well. It can be difficult to get that first toe out of the broom closet. But at least here you can come out of it and play a bit. Welcome!
