My name is Alex. I'm an unemployed 21 year old from New York. I took a semester off from school to ~*find myself*~ but all I've been doing is sleeping a whole lot and eating a whole lot and not getting a whole lot of calls back after job interviews. So I've got a lot of free time and I'm here to write and read your writing and write about your writing and read your writing about my writing and I hope we'll become great friends.

Hey, Alex. I'm also currently unemployed. The difference being, I've spent the majority of that time playing video games, watching internet shows, and generally not writing.

Welcome!

(Oh yeah...and I like cats but unfortunately am not a cat.)

Alehydra,

Welcome. Yes, enjoy reading and writing and reading about writiting and writing about writing. There are many great people here to learn from. There are secrets to be discovered but, I'll tell you in another life, when we are both cats. --Sofia-- Vanilla Sky

Goddamnit, Jonathan, that joke was spot-on.

Meow.

@Dwayne At first, I thought that was a Schrodinger's joke and I was sad because I thought you wanted cats to die. Or be both dead and alive, or whatever the fuck that guy meant.

Tyler, I wasn't going to come right out and say it but I might have an unhealthy relationship with a certain Blizzard mmorpg. It might border on addiction.

Well it is good you can admit you have a problem.

BTW court I'm an absolutist.

Oh no, I try to stay far away from WoW and other games like it. I have an obsessive personality so it's best that I stick to games that can actually be completed. The closest I'll come is Minecraft. I decided to put in an underground wool harvesting facility and spent six hours just digging out this gigantic room.

You need to be proud of your obsessions.

I don't trust cats. A dog would take a bullet for you. A cat would hold the gun.

Welcome. I always wanted to play WoW, but with my higly addictive personality it would be very dangerous. I have no free time, so I am jealous, in a way.

Welcome, Alehydra. My version of 'taking a year out to find myself' involved wasting a lot of money on a Uni in London, and some more money on related expenses, like dvds and chocolate covered banana chips and stuff... but on the bright side I got to hang out with poets and dancers and Barbie doll collectors and football enthusiasts and militants and BPDs and geeks and musicians and all sorts of wonderful and wonderfully dreadful people, so on the whole I'm not willing to consider it a mistake. Now WoW on the other hand...
