so I'm new and stuff

Postby all_my_fish » Sat Oct 29, 2011 8:25 pm

Hey, y'all. New to the board, not so new to being asexual (known for a few years now.) A straight friend of mine was recently bemoaning the fact that the majority of her close friends fell somewhere in LGBTQIABBQ and that she needed more straight friends. Which made me realize that I should find asexual friends! The internet seemed like the best place to look and here I am now.

So! I'm an undergrad going to a state university in my home city, mainly to avoid accruing lots of debt. I'm an English major with minors in Education and Asian Studies. I want to teach, want to teach anything at all, really. Getting some practice this term as a teacher's aid. School keeps me pretty busy, but in my spare time I bake, collect comics, and sleep. I used to write a lot too, but I've had less time for it in the last few years, not to mention I started taking anti-depressants and they seemed to suck up all my creativity. Much as I miss poetry, there's no way I'm dropping the meds, at least not yet.

I've identified as asexual since I was sixteen, but I didn't really have a name for it until I was eighteen. I also identify as gender neutral, but this has less bearing on my day-to-day. No idea if I'm aromantic or not yet. I've never had so much as a crush on anyone, but I suppose the possibility is out there.

All that said, I look forward to meeting everyone here!

Hello and welcome.

The state school thing, I wish I had done something like that rather than get suckered into a big four-year research university. Debt sucks.

And huzzah for teachers. We don't have enough good teachers, so good on you for going for that.

In any case, I look forward to seeing you around the forums.

Well, I'm not a regular but I'd like to add my welcome to the others. It's a really friendly place so I hope you'll soon feel at home.
