I've never been good at introductions but here goes:
My real name is Amanda but since it's already taken (as usual) I added my birth year (1981) behind it to make a nickname. I used to use "real" nicknames ever since I really got into the internet 12 years ago or so but lately I've gotten tired of them and just started to use my real first name. It's not like I have a unique name anyway.


I used to be a Maritime Officer (I was both a Deck and Engineer Officer on cargo and cruise ships) and I've seen half the world but I had to quit due to 2 herniated discs in my lower back 8 years ago and I now have 2 in my neck too. This makes it hard to type so I've become a real lurker and someone who writes short replies. This will probably be my longest post on ATS.

I'm 75% disabled so I have way to much time on my hands but I have started a home course which is just 1 step below being a dietitian (which is a 4 year full-time education) since I love to help people and since nobody will hire me with my current education and limitations. So if you need diet/healthy living advice, just send me a pm after I reach my 20 posts limit and I'll see what I can do.

I have lived in the US for nearly 5 years after following my heart and getting married to a American but he broke it 1.5 years ago so I moved back to the Netherlands taking my dog and my most (to me) valuable stuff with me.
I got a kitten from the pound 2 months ago and I currently like to joke that I life with 2 handsome guys in my small apartment who will both be neutered by November.

Thanks for the welcome's everyone and don't worry guys, I only neuter pets.

My life motto is simple: "Get depressed or make the most of it." The first part didn't help so I'm sticking with the second part.

And now I'm off to walk my dog so I can read a little before I go to sleep.
Good day/night y'all.

hi Amanda! Looks like you and I have some things in common - I am a recently reformed lurker and I also live with a handsome neutered companion.

Maybe we should start a club. Something called: "Ex-lurking singles with neutered companions."

I know it's weak but I've actually had a busy day for once and I'm worn out.
