I hold no illusions about what I may do with my degree. At this point, I want to finish my degree because higher education was always very important to me and because I have so much time and money invested in it. Better jobs also require a bachelor's degree of some sort (many are not specific about a major, they just want educated employees.) I would LOVE to travel, my focus was on cultural anthropology, but I cannot do as much traveling with a 6 year old child. I have full custody so I am all he really has, nobody to watch him for extended periods of time. Maybe I will just go into business/human relations? I can study American subcultures and even apply it to business/target customers. Maybe I'll apply to the CIA? LOL. I would LOVE to become a writer and I continue to pursue that dream in little bits and pieces (when I have the time and peace to write, which is not as often during the summer months with my son out of school.)
My name is Orson Zedd. This is not my real name, but a homophone I stole from Shakespeare's King Lear. I'm from the New Albany/Tupelo/Oxford area in Mississippi. Apparently there are very few atheists around here, but I might as well try my luck. I attend the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss for you Billy Joel fans), majoring in English Education. I've got 24 hours left in my degree, but the stupidity of the School of Ed means I'll be there another year.
I'm very reserved. I do enjoy talking, but I'm not very good at small talk. I consider myself a writer, so if you're interested in themes and things like that, you're in luck. I'm also very shy. I'm working on it, but it's really hard to get over.
Hope I'm not perusing a wild ornithoid without cause.
hey I am Ross I live in Edinburgh reacently moved out from home which is nice. I am studying for my masters degree in civil engineering and enjoy dicussions of all types.
I was never religious although I was baptised still trying to work out why though none of my family are religious. It isn't that hard being non-religious in Scotland as i have been to lead to believe as it is in the states.(sorry if that doesn't flow that well).
Hi, I'm Merelen! Not my real name, but it's close enough to use here. I'm a 25 year old band director in Wisconsin, currently looking for a teaching position. My main instrument is the horn (yes, the french horn). I'm interested in a lot of things: music, reading, gaming, and more. Most recently, I've gotten into biking and have been trying to get out every day.
I have a hard time finding other atheists (or agnostics) in the Eau Claire area, so I'm glad to have found this site. :)
I'm Kristi. I'm 25 years old, never married, no kids (although I would like to have kids someday). I live in Spokane, WA and I'm currently studying to be an RN. I love to read, watch movies, and get outside to enjoy nature once in awhile. I would love to meet others (from the Spokane area, if possible), grab coffee, and just chitchat about things. I don't meet enough atheists here!
Hello. I frankly don't see a whole lot of point in joining or posting in this group, as nearly everyone here lives half the world away, but eh, who knows.
My name's Abe (not short for anything, just Abe. Also not pronounced as one would in English, but that's arbitrary), I have lived in the Netherlands all my life, although I've seen small parts of the world (Northern&Eastern Australia, Bali, Croatia, England, Prague/Czech Republic, Germany, Denmark, Budapest..). English is not my first language but I speak it about as well as I speak Dutch.
I'm 21 years of age, as far as religion's concerned, lucky with where I grew up, although I'm not very proud of my country. Finishing up high-school (failed maths. Twice. Fail.) and to start college in september, namely Visual Art at International Game Architecture and Design. Essentially an art education, both analogue and digital, but very industry focussed, so high job security as opposed to being doomed to live in an attic and live of painting :D
..I tend to lose track of my own stories and end up talking about something completely different from what I had intended.
I'm slender, weighing roughly 65kg/10 stone/144lbs at 1.82m/6'. Long, thick, ash blond hair (I love my hair), goatee of sorts, grey eyes (that is to say, from what I hear, my eyes colour towards blue at times, possibly when I'm happy?). I play the piano, though I'm not excellent at it. I listen to music a lot, metal in particular but in many varieties. I find it hard to listen to and enjoy simple music, with a few exceptions. Some of my favourite bands/artists include:
-The Project Hate MCMXCIX
I'm a pseudo-geek; that is to say, I have an innate interest in science, especially particle and astro physics, I enjoy games, philosophy and I can be a real tech-nerd sometimes. Still, I'm far from the stereotype geek. Perhaps just good balance?
I don't like saying I'm particularly intelligent, but I'm said to be, and possibly more so than good for me..
Aesthetics are of high value to me. Not necessarily on my person, but in my surroundings. I cringe at modern architecture in a 100yo neighbourhood, false notes and mismatched colours. That said, I do not like Apple-design. Minimalism is not my thing.
I feel like I'm going off on a loop about arbitrary things.. Again..
I'll just stop here and if there's any questions, ask! I enjoy answering questions. :)
