    Hello!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by anxiously, May 20, 2016.

    Hi everyone! I'm not very good with introductions so I'll keep it simple. My name is Morgan and I'm a 19 year old girl from Kentucky. I'm an English major but I've yet to decide what path to follow (literature, creative writing, or teaching). Writing has been something I've enjoyed since I was in elementary school. I started with short stories but was never able to finish them. Since middle school I've been more into poetry and prose. Currently writing is more of a coping mechanism than a hobby so most of my writing deals with different aspects of anxiety. I don't care at all for novel writing since I don't have the patience or creativity. Besides writing I'm into napping and clever puns. For now I'm just here to read what other people have to say since sharing what I have to say with all of you seems a bit scary right now. Hopefully in the future I'll be up for it! It's nice to meet you all.

    Welcome to the madhouse!:D
    It's sad to hear you have given up on novels, but I at least hope you'll write some lovely (or indeed sad and stress-inducing) poems! And I'm not convinced your uncreative. We'll see. Good luck!
    Oscar out!:brb:

    Not sure how you're both 17 and 18, but I suppose I can let you into the club ;)

    I'm less than a month away from my birthday so I figure it's only sorta 17.

    I wasn't going to say you were old... there's no way you'd still be able to hear me.

    Don't say that, you're just differently young.:p
    Also, you're thirty-nine, you'll be fine.

    Well for me to get a Monty Python reference, that makes me feel old when someone doesn't know who Tom Selleck is.

    Why is it old to know Monty Python? I know Monty Python. Everyone knows Monty Python. It's trendy to know Monty Python. People commonly meme and quote it.
    Also this Tom Selleck guy is apparently still around and he's in a running tv series that seems to be doing good. Doesn't seem old either.

    Ah good to hear!
    I wasn't quite sure what you meant by madhouse until I read all of the comments after yours! But thank you!
    Thank you!
    Thank you! Good luck to you too!
    I appreciate the Monty Python.

    I forgot this was a new member thread. Um, ignore everything you read after... after your initial post.
