Hello HEthens, long time lurker here finally joining the ranks! I stumbled upon this site just shy of 10k members and kept it as a book mark and daily destination in my travels. I have played the reserved and hesitant type for too long and would like to turn a leaf. I am through with letting paranoia dictate my actions and intentions, the voice that says ‘Your opinion doesn’t matter.. you don’t have anything to offer.. you don’t matter.’ I have kept my distance due to feeling misunderstood and my words misconstrued. Yet a new year is upon us, and with it, I shall change. I want to thank all those who have posted and been a reflection unto me, of the person I wish to be, with ideas, confessions and strength through unity.
I know now that I can not get anywhere without expressing my dreams and desires, for I am not the only one who feels this way. Feedback is a two-way street and I had been looking at the highway from a dead end road. Well, I’m going to hit the on-ramp and join the traffic to keep my psyche in check and try to avoid a wreck.
My vehicle has made 23 trips around the sun, equipped with a one-way muffler, is of Caucasian descent, resides in the Midwest US and is driven by adventure, interaction and the pursuit of ‘knowledge.’
I am planning on attending the Earthship Biotecture Academy sometime next year, if funds are gathered in time. Jobs are scarce and money is tight, but nothing has given me more chills and a sense of purpose than imagining being part of a team building a new frontier in sustainable living.I am doing everything I can to make that happen.
That’s just a little about me..
How are you?
you matter ^-^
this is my puppy. he matters too.
@sedentary-nomad, “pitbull” covers a variety of different breeds. they are full of personality. my dog is very energetic, but also some times skeptical during certain social interactions. female pits seem to be a little bit more tame then male too.
@sedentary-nomad, I think the question on all of our minds is …
Do you have trypophobia?
looks like a sloth colony
@sedentary-nomad, I’m glad you progressed from lurker status!! I’ve heard that most of the site’s active members are solely lurkers, so I love when one of you guys comes out of the woodwork. I like that you called yourself a “vehicle”. I’m also in the midwest! Where are you specifically?
