...but I guess you already know that if I'm posting here!

I've been lurking for a short while, about a month or so, but never felt that I had anything particularly substantial to contribute. However, I noticed that the attitude I have seen so far is very friendly, and as such, I figured, "oh why not?". So I finally took the plunge and joined. While I still don't feel that I have very much to contribute (yet), I hope that I will fit in just fine. I've been on other forums before, so I get the general idea of how they work, I'm just not keen on posting much.

About me... okay, so I'm a full time college student, studying computer information systems. No career goals in mind, yet just planning to work in the criminal justice system. I know a little about computers (enough to know what can cause an infinite loop in Ruby but perhaps not enough to actually stop myself from making one). I studied English lit for a while, but realized it was not in the stars.

And yes. I know, it's Okoboji, but I like the way Okobogee looks.

I really like your avatar.

To answer your question, I enjoy the Aliens & UFOs board, Paranormal Studies, and Cryptozoology. I like to browse recent topics, and I'll read whatever catches my eye, but those are my usual go-to boards. Thank you for asking, and thank you everyone else for the warm greetings!
