Well, I’ve never been good at this whole talking about myself thing. Reminds me of my school days when everyone is new and you go around the class and tell everyone about yourself. Always made me insanely nervous. However, I will try!

I am 28, a registered nurse, in the emergency room. I absolutely love high adrenaline emergencies and have been told numerous times that I seem so incredibly calm in any stressful situations. I consider myself an extreme introvert, I’m an old soul. I have been told by pretty much anyone I ever meet and become friends with that I have a “resting bitch face” and I come off like I’m not going to be a nice person when in reality I just don’t care for pointless small talk with people and I don’t feel the need to bounce around everywhere I go with a fake smile on 24/7. Once people actually get to know me, I am a very caring person and will do pretty much anything for anyone. I genuinely like and want to see people succeed in this world and I am constantly trying to better myself through self reflection.

I CRAVE knowledge. About anything. Ever. I can’t stand the thought of the unknown. However I understand that this constant searching for truth has caused many many MANY brilliant minds to go absolutely insane throughout history. So, I keep myself in check.

I am HUGE into conspiracies, the crazier the better! I am constantly searching for a new conspiracy I haven’t heard about yet so I can dive right in and research the crap out of it! Not saying I believe everything I read or hear, but I love it!

A few weird things about my life that may interest a site like this:
My grandfather was a grand master and 33rd degree mason.
He joined the Shriners.
I attended MANY lodge gatherings.

I have green eyes - I mention only because it’s rare. They were blue until I reached about 9 years old in which they changed to green.
I have brown hair - it was very very blond until about 9 years old when it started changing to brown.

I suppose that’s all I will say for now.
I’m excited to start diving into this website!
Woohoo!

Welcome fellow north carolinian. I imagine working in an emergency room can either be a very stressful and/or rewarding place.

Welcome aboard

Yes, it is there that you see the world for what it truly is. I meet people that from all walks of life, from the rich and famous to the people that don’t ever leave their house because sometime or another everyone will likely need the services of emergency medicine.

I also see people at their worst. With the increasing population and amount of immigrants coming in, we cannot see and treat everyone in a “timely manner”. We get up 6 hour waits some days, and we are considered a small town. We take people based on priority and you would be astonished at what you would see. People fake seizures and fake passing out in the waiting room, people yelling and cursing at us.

Crazy story: I was the nurse at the front desk where you check in, so it is my job to evaluate a person by looking at them as they check in and from a few questions to get a sense of what’s going on. Well, a man in his late 20’s was dropped off at the door with a stab wound in his chest with blood squirting out everywhere. I immediately brought him back for medical care and someone in the waiting room had the nerve to come to the desk yelling at me. “I HAVE BEEN HERE LONGER, WHY DID HE GET TO GO BACK BEFORE ME?!” People can be absolutely ridiculous.

This is where my ability to remain very calm comes in handy, I just look at people when they they do this, with a genuine smile, and calmly explain the triage process and go about my business.

I will be on the lookout for this Doug character. The rest you mentioned, I have sat here tying to decipher the meaning, and I am clueless. Any further explanation?

Welcome fellow conspiracy theorist. So very good to have you with us.

The more of us to fight the evil of the 'official lovers of all that is mainstream' people the better.

Unless you are an inside plant, then grrrrrrrrrrr...

Well thank you!

Definitely not a plant, I simply got banned from another site that I used to lurk around for years, finally decided to post a thread and I suppose they didn’t like what was said because within minutes it was deleted and I was banned. So I started researching on google what I did wrong and apparently they give people bans for pretty much anything they want and then offer to unban you if you pay for a better membership. I was like whaaaaa? That def turned me off, then this website was mentioned and then BOOM here I am

Welcome. 32nd degree Master mason here. You sound much like my wife. She can tolerate people, but she would rather not. Incredibly smart, and efficient. This is a great place, and can become family quick if you let it. Try not to take things personal (easy to say) but even the seemingly stupid ones here are usually smarter than most others.

I'd suggest you find an avitar specialist to help with your image. If you don't get offers, let me know and I'll point you in their direction. (nice folks who just like to help)

Hello. What part of NC? I've been considering moving to western NC, among a few other states. The Smokies are amazing.

Well hello! I suppose my grandfather was 32 then as well, he was as high as you could go in the lodge regarding the degrees. He was a wonderful man, as are many masons! Very kind and a great sense of brotherhood. Him and I had a special bond, we could be in a loud chaotic room with a million people yelling and screaming and we would sit there and look at each other calmly and just give each other this face where we knew what each other was trying to say. I loved him dearly and took care of him when he got sick towards the end of his life. Moved here to North Carolina to live with him and my grandmother all the way from California. He put me through school, and I owe a lot of who I am today to him in many ways!

You’re wife and I do sound a lot alike! She sounds like a very wonderful woman!

I have not been approached for an avatar, I’m not even sure how to go about that.

The Appalachian mountains are beautiful! I used to go to Boone to visit, it’s a very pretty place. It gets very cold and a lot of snow in winter so just make sure you can handle that. I lived in a small small town near the Virginia border. So small that we raised chickens, cows, had a bee farm, grew grapes. It was very nice to be not so mainstream. However, coming from California it was quite a culture shock so I moved to more of a larger city. I don’t want to disclose too much online about my whereabouts but I will tell you that big cities in NC are very overcrowded, and the class of people coming here seem to be of the lower variety. There is a town in the mountains of NC that hasn’t YET been touched with this plague of people, it’s called Sparta. It’s close to Stone Mountain. Look that area up.

Oh don’t worry, he was finished alright. Stabbed right in the heart. Not much we could do for that.

Haaaahahahaha.....
When I lived in PA, I used to shovel snow in shorts and a tshirt in the middle of winter. I LOVE cold. In fact, the only con for me for NC was that it didn't get as cold as it did back home.
Let me ask you this - is it true that Floridians are flooding into NC? I had the misfortune of having to live in this hell for the past 5 years and I'd really like to get as far away from it and anything coming out of it as possible.
