    Yolo, guys ^^

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by greenduckish, Aug 17, 2012.

    You only live once, right?
    I know some people have a problem with the saying, but I feel so proud of myself!

    I figured outwhat it meant!!!
    before today, I was completely oblivious to the meaning. I thought it was a way of saying hello :redface:
    my bad...

    Anyways, I'm greenduckish.
    From Wisconsin. Gonna be a senior in high school next year.
    History buff, I've taken all the straight history courses our school offers.
    I play the violin, occasionally the viola. However, I'm tone deaf, so if you need someone to tune yours, I am not the girl for that. I can play them, and that's about it, but i'm pretty darn good. If I do say so myself ^^
    I am a decon i taekwon-do.... It's one step away from black belt, which I'm testing for in December. I've been in it for seven, almost eight years. A looong time.

    I love the Walking Dead. Like, completely in love. I nearly died when they anounced the season finale. But guess what, only two and a half more months! October 31st, season three. Thank goodness!
    Along with the Walking Dead, I'm in love with Madeleine Roux, a fantastic author. She wrote a few zombie books. I love zombies ^^

    I love writing, like everyone else here - assuming? it is a writing site. I usually do fanfiction, but have recently branched out into my own fiction, but I get major writers block :( I hope this place will help me a bunch ^^

    Thats me in a nutshell.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, greenduckish!

    I hope you find what you're looking for here, whatever your interests in writing.

    This forum aims to provide the best workshopping resources on the internet, and to that end we have a few rules which you should familiarise yourself with before you get stuck in. The main section of the site is the Writing Workshop, where members can post their writing in order to receive critique of their work.

    However, before we allow members to post their work, they must have met some basic requirments. Firstly, you must have been a member for fourteen days, and have made twenty posts on the forum overall (please note, posts in Word Games do not count towards this). This is so that members, when they post their work, have familiarised themselves with the forums and contributed to them (as well as hopefully learned something for themselves). Secondly, members must provide two constructive reviews of other people's work for each piece of their own that they wish to post. This is because we believe that the focus of workshopping should be equally upon giving reviews as receiving them, as they allow a writer to practice and improve their editing skills, which they can then apply to their own writing.

    Beyond the Writing Workshop, you will find that we have extensive forums for discussion of aspects of writing, as well as a community area for general discussion. We also run periodic short story and poetry contests, which are good for challenging yourself and expanding your skills.

    If you have any questions or problems, then the moderators (myself, Cogito, Lemex and Dante Dases) should be your first port of call. Any technical problems with the site itself should be directed to Daniel, the site administrator and owner. I would recommend you have a look over the rules so that you know what to expect, and what is expected. But aside from that, I hope you enjoy your time here.

    You're a history buff, and you like zombies? We're going to get along really well, assuming you never ever say YOLO again :p

    Welcome to the forums, I hope you enjoy what you find here :)

    Hey there, I'm a history buff myself and someday I hope to take professional violin lessons. As far as saying 'Yolo' for a greeting, I love it. I think of Megamind and Will Ferrell everytime I here it. :D Welcome to WF.

    Zombies and History totally go together. Our past, and our future >:]

    And Tessie, the violin is so fun. Some people say it's hard - since you have a bow and fingerings to do, as opposed to a wind thing. I find it much easier than blowing my lungs out.

    And thanks for all the welcomes, guys ^^

    Hi greenduckish! Welcome to Writing Forums, I hope you love it here, I do! :D

    Oh, and you are not the only one...I had no idea what YOLO meant until I went to Florida on vacation. It was literally everywhere, plastered on t-shirts, mugs, hats, shorts, bracelets, you name it! My sister and I got into a conversation with some guys and their jaws dropped open when we asked them what it meant. Yep. I didn't feel proud like you at that moment...:p

    That's awesome you play the Violin. I love listening to violin music, it's so calming and beautiful! I'd love to know how to play it.

    Have fun around the forums, if you ever want to chat just message me!

    ~Jess
