Like so many other posters, I've lurked for quite a while. I've read my share of interesting things and finally decided tonight I might have some valuable thoughts or opinions to add.

A brief introduction to who I am would probably begin with the fact that I have always been fascinated by things unexplained and mysterious to me. I was raised in a very religious family and remember vividly being scolded for watching Unsolved Mysteries as a child because it was evil... or something silly like that. There are so many topics I'm interested in: Alien/UFO phenomena, cryptozoology, ghosts or similar paranormal experiences, past lives, OOBEs, conspiracies, time travel, and probably many other topics I'm not thinking of right now. I think listening to Coast to Coast for many years has opened my mind to many possibilities. I've also watched too many documentaries and television programs to count on all the aforementioned subjects. I'm always open to new ideas but I try to remain skeptical and reasonable.

My personal experiences are actually very limited in anything extremely mysterious. I have a couple stories to share. I will wait and save them for appropriate times and when I'm an established member of the community. I only have one person to talk to about these things in real life (my boyfriend/soul mate/best friend), and I am excited to find others from around the world that have similar interests.

On the basic details side, I am in my late 20's, female, in a serious relationship, and have a darling Yorkie-Poo named Luna. I live in the midwest, work in a popular video game retail store, and I'm trying to complete my court reporting program. I'm almost done and it's very difficult, but rewarding. I'm looking forward to starting a career and a family soon. I have insomnia frequently and I'll likely always be on in the middle of the night, at least in my time zone!

Thanks for listening to my introduction and I honestly look forward to contributing to and learning from this community.

AboveTopSecret is much like a theme park with many, many rides, with that said...
Here's a few thoughts before getting onto any one of the 1000's of topical rides at Above Top Secret, also known as ATS, the world's largest Civil & Unique Discussion Community.

*** Please be at least this tall to get on any of the rides, (Johnny stretches his arm outward), and act like an 'civil' adult. This will save you a lot of future stress, frustration and possible action by one of your friendly neighborhood Mods!

*** Please remember that some members are very passionate and vocal depending on what ride you're on. Before getting on a ride, you should be mentally fit, emotionally stable and have a strong stomach for theories, conjecture, research and evidence presented that may be contrary to your own.

*** Please be "open-minded" enough to understand that sometimes the ride isn't always what you might think or expect. At times, you may learn something new and 'out-of-the-box' before you get off the ride, this is a natural and normal phenomena.

*** Please note that at times the ride gets overly-heated and "it's strongly suggested" to get off the ride to regroup one's thoughts before continuing. This will also help guarantee that the ride will move forward without getting derailed or explode into a fiery trashbin.

*** Please have fun! But be aware if you act in an uncivil-like manner, use profanity, troll, intentionally spread a hoax and/or get verbally abusive, you will be removed off the ride by a Moderator. This is for your safety, & also for those both young and old on the ride with you.
