Hello all who happen across this post, I am known by many names but you can call me marginalmuse. I have been a long time voyeur of the ATS site, and finally making my first post. I'm glad you could be a part of my first time. I'll share some things about myself to get the ball rolling. I am 30 years old and Canadian. I have always had an insatiable thirst for knowledge.However the education system , as a whole, and my local school system always seemed to steer people towards the knowledge they wanted you to learn. So needless to say I was disenfranchised and I learned at a young age that the powers at be always had ulterior motives. I have always looked to alternative news sources and message boards for the type of knowledge and enlightenment I need. One of my main motivations behind joining these boards was to finally connect with like minded individuals and truth seekers. 10 years ago I moved to major city (from a small town in a big province) and found people who shared the same rational, egoless mindset and it was great to have a trusted circle to discuss interesting topics. However last year I moved back to that small town (family reasons) and I am having trouble coping with the mindless people I grew up with. In the 9 years I was gone things changed drastically. Everyone is fatter, slower, and medicated. I will always always have my city circle but Skype and emails are our only means of connecting atm. I am hoping to be welcomed into this circle where we can share and learn together. It would be a very welcome break from the matrix. That's a fraction of my story I hope to read the first chapters of yours below.
