Yuppers, it's me. :-)
Although, like most newbies, I wouldn't call myself 'new'. I've been regularly coming to this site for about 4 years now. As per instructions,
I'm posting my "Hi, there and Hello" introductory thread (after which I will wait to begin a new thread until I have surpassed my initial 20
Let's see... I suppose we'll start with the basics: I'm practically 30 and female. I've recently moved into (well, almost into) the mountains with
my husband (no kids) to make for a quicker get away. I've always believed that there is something going on that, for whatever reason, I do not get to
be privy to. So, like any sleuth, I started digging. The digging started many a moon ago when I was just a lass in high school. That particular dig
led me to no longer attending organized religion. Soon after, I started noticing other things in life that most around me simply took for granted. I
suppose it's just my nosey nature, but about 15 years later, I feel like I'm finally catching on.
I'm pretty much interested in everything that contains truth. More accurately I would say I'm interested in things that imply truth, but don't back
it up. Oh! And aliens! Man, do I love me some aliens. But who doesn't, right?
I bet you're all on the edge of your seat trying to figure out why I've finally decided to join after all these years.
Community. I have several hundred friends on facebook (I'm sure you've heard of it, a social networking site with millions of people
) very few of
which are awake. This leads to either frustrating or non-existent interaction. Understand, that while in years past, these people were my friends and
colleges, now are merely acquaintances who spout unintelligible sheep-like responses to everything happening in the world. I come to ATS to pretend
like I'm having intelligent conversation, al beit, by myself- until now.
I guess what I'm saying is that ATS seems more like a community to me than the one I have built on facebook through my college years. I'm hoping
this will give me piece of mind that I'm not the 'only one'.
I'm very excited to add my detective skills to the pot and hope that my contribution to ATS will be somewhat as helpful as it has already been to me.
And bear with me, now that I am officially a member the site seems so much bigger. So many things to learn!
Thanks... for everything
