Hello all. Figured I'd get this introduction thing out of the way on the road to a perhaps more active membership on the boards! This is largely my Litmus test for these forums, I suppose! I can toss a pebble in the pond and watch it ripple, if only a bit, and then decide if becoming an active character on these forums is something that would be beneficial, and more importantly amusing. (And I'm rather hoping the folks on these boards pay attention to this section. hehe) Anyhow, I'm a University student from Alaska, and I am a History major with my minor generally flip-flopping between education, philosophy, or God knows what next. I've written in the past, though largely it has been because of academic work, or simply as a way of getting the general junk of life off my chest. This latest semester, however, I've taken a Fiction class, and it's been particularly fun not only writing, but finding out what everyone else is writing as well. Given my class schedule for the following semesters, I will unfortunately be unable to continue those sorts of classes, so I figured I'd take up my (potentially) newest pastime here. And on that note, I'll not ramble too much further. Though out of curiosity, and because I've noticed a fair number of "out of staters", I was wondering both where this board happens to be run from, and where most of the member-base hails from. Are the majority of you European?
