Hi... so, I've been lurking that long (so many years, it might be embarrassing admitting to how many) that I feel comfortable here already, recognising so many of the members in different threads and enjoying their opinions, views and knowledge on a wide range of topics. The big surprise is seeing all the avatars. I decided to join since I just celebrated a milestone birthday. The Dutch refer to this as the Sarah birthday - it's a delightful tradition that my family are embracing to recognise me and my life to date. We don't mind borrowing traditions from all over the world.

I live Down Under and I often read the aussie threads here.

My interests are eclectic, as I imagine most people's are. I've had some unusual experiences in life and I accept that I'm not "normal" but I still feel blessed regardless of everything. I know that I am empathic and have a good amount of compassion.

I read a lot (maybe that's why I keep coming back to ats) about a wide range of subjects including, but not limited to folklore, traditions, pop culture, psychology, languages, nature in general, and animal behaviour. I have just begun a love affair with learning languages and I'm interested in medicine; Western, Eastern and alternative. I was home-educated and the love of learning is still strong. I hope to learn Auslan at night school next year, which will depend upon other factors.

I'm rather shy and rarely voice my opinions, but we'll see how I go, after all, I did join.

Only a short while to go for us aussies, so, Happy New Year. May 2015 bring us all an abundance of blessings!

I appreciate the warnings.
I'm not into warm beer, cold beer, any beer, so you're welcome to have all my share, as well. I will guard this tequila as if it were the last one tonight.

Welcome to ATS!
No need to be shy.
If you see something that gets your interest! Get in there and say what's on your mind.

Get some popcorn and a tin foil hat..
You're gonna be up for hours reading.

It is addicting..

Welcome, great way to start the New Year!

Click on the link and wax lyrical about what sort of Avatar you would like and then be a little patient.

The wonderful artists will provide a startling Avatar just for you.

Happy New Year mate!

Thank you Bigburgh. I'm going to try. I'm afraid I'm already addicted. It has just taken me a devil-may-care moment for me to throw myself off the deep end. And thanks for the reminder that I need a tinfoil hat. I can imagine mine will be quite the fashion statement.

Thank you, pheonix. Happy New Year! I'm looking forward to 2015 and hope you are, too.

Thanks for the link, as well. I will need to give what I want in an avatar some consideration. The avatars are amazing in that thread!

I see P has already provided the link to the avatar thread, cheers P


As of tomorrow us artists are moving home to the 2015 avatar thread, you can find it here BTS Avatar creations 2015 The old link will still work, and we'll patrol it to redirect errant requests.

Having said that

Welcome to ATS, enjoy your time with us and a Happy New Year to you.

I look forward to working on your AV

Cody

Hi Cody, and thank you for the warm welcome. You make amazing avatars and I still haven't given a lot of consideration to what I may like yet. I do appreciate your generous offer. Happy New Year to you, too.
