I'm sure most of you already know the others in this forum very well over the years. I'm pretty new and I really don't remember anyone from the Golden Age. I know bits and pieces of some users, but not much. I'm not asking for real names or any info you would be worried about providing: I just want to know you guys and gals a little better.

So, who are you all in the skin and bone and water sausage meat?

I'm a 26 year old from South Louisiana. Working as a project manager assistant for an up-and-coming general contractor in the area. Originally went to school for chemistry and geomatics, but I crapped them. Oops. Still happy with life so all's well.

Outside of work, most days I'm drinking scotch and playing some co-op game with my best friend, or watching some stupid show with the girlfriend. When I'm feeling REALLY crazy, I might take my drinking to the dive bar downtown where the best friend bartends to play some good pool which progresses into shitty pool with each drink.

Camping, archery, fooling with GameMaker, good beer, and being 12 are some hobbies of mine.

Ok people, tell us about yourselves and give us them socials

22 year old here. Employed as a college adviser for the last 4.5 years.

History major, with a background in nursing/bio. I realized that cleaning assholes was not what I wanted to do in life. Much happier now. granted I have vocational nursing as my back up.

I like to jog and read. I like spending time with friends and my fraternity. but most of the time work or school keeps me busy and stressed out.

Speak for yourself. The booty is a holy thing
I have friends going through the nursing program at our local college, the Harvard on the Bayou. They are forever burnt out. They even perform alcohol tests on the students. In Louisiana. Out their fucking mind. Anyways, props to you for even giving it a shot. No shame in backing out of that torture

27 year old male from Georgia. I work on getting gtx0 and an unrelated T-shirt design business off the ground.

For my day job, i do website development and general IT/consulting for a small business for 50+ hours each week. The pay is on the lower end of middle-class but I'm used to being dirt poor so it's nice to be financially independent and have some money saved up.

My life in general is a total mess because of the aftereffects of five years of major depression as well as a much longer time of thinking and doing things very differently from most people. Things seem to *finally* be coming together now, but it's a slow process.

They have a chapter in Baton Rouge, I think. Not sure if there are any others in my state. They're mostly founded/started up in the East?

Hey man, taking an extra year to break out of a major you've long since lost love for isn't time wasted in my eyes. Besides, I loved college. Not the lack of money, but I had the time of my life

Are you getting some years of experience under your belt there? That's a pretty lucrative career path with TONS of options. Get on with an oil company working as their IT tech and they'd treat you right. Good luck to you in your future endeavors

Depression hits hard for sure. Glad to hear things are starting to fall in place. I have a few friends in rough spots with anxiety and depression, and it tears at me that I can't be of more help

22 year old full time software engineering student. Raised in a small, socialist town called Level Plains until I moved out at 18 and entered the world of capitalism. I mean, not really, I understood capitalism as a concept but I hadn't really had much use for it prior to that. I was in a relationship at the time and moved in with my now ex-fiance (the fucker) and after a few months I had to move away to college. He broke up with me a few months later on my birthday. After that I fell into a spiral of severe depression and attempted to kill myself on more than one occasion. Honestly, the only thing that kept me from jumping in front of a train the night it happened was that I'd just smoked two blunts and was too lazy to walk all the way to the railroad tracks. About a year later I started to get better, I discovered hula-hooping, here's me after about 1 month of practice. I'm much better now but haven't had the time to make another video.



I've now been hooping for two years. It was during this time of me coming out of depression that I jumped feet first into right-wing conspiracy theories. In fact, it wasn't but about a year and a half ago I was spouting out the same bullshit as 85 does now. My roommate would constantly call me crazy and we got into a big fight and stopped being friends for a while because of it. A few weeks after that fight I started to think about the things I believed, started really analysing things and realized he was right, I was crazy. It took a good long while of in depth, personal research on mostly every topic you can think of news wise to start to reject the right-wing dogma. However, I do still have my questions about 9/11 and especially about the Sandy Hook shooting (which I still believe never actually happened)

Fast forward to when I was 21, about a year later. I've become quite the liberal and am beginning to understand who I am as a person and that other people are people too, not just mindless robots built to enhance my own existence. I never actually thought they were robots, mindless though yeah... I'd fallen down another rabbit hole and was at that point more of a red leaf. Super crazy spiritual (I think I just have a niche for being insane) got involved in things like collective evolution, earth we are one, and spirit science and metaphysics community.

Strangely, this was where I started to snap out of my insanity more or less. But also depression started to creep back up on me. As a man of science, one who's spiritual beliefs constantly change to allow science to hold a place of fact in my mind, I realized that many of the "spiritual" people were not. They claimed to be about science, they would make up some off the wall shit and claim it to be fact, about the same as right-wingers do with their fear-mongering, and would outright reject science saying that they were wrong. After a while I left, though I would still consider myself spiritual, I am much more a man of science.

These experiences have led me to have an intolerance for either right-wing or left-wing extremists.

Today, I mostly stare at computer screens. I recently got out of a year long relationship and I'm still coming to terms with that in a way. I'm taking this as an opportunity to embrace the fact that I'm not exclusively attracted to men, meanwhile being aware that it's going to take a special kind of woman to make me want her. I've been looking at jobs in Canada in case Trump wins the presidency.

There's a run-down, I'm sure there are holes in it. Feel free to ask me anything.

22 year old male here (turn 23 this month). I was born in Houston, TX, grew up near Portland, OR and went to undergrad in Seattle, WA studying neurobiology. I'm currently in medical school in Chicago and I'll be here for another three years or so before going off to residency, hopefully back on the west coast.

I'm single at the moment. I am heavily into photography and music, and my favorite beverages are coffee and beer. I enjoy the outdoors, hiking, walking my dog, camping, biking and any permutation of those things. I love going to live music shows at small venues on my free nights. Right now I'm working on progressing my photography skills so that at some point I can perhaps make some cash selling prints. I'm also hoping to work on a time lapse video of Chicago over the summer just for fun.
