Hello All
« on: December 15, 2018, 01:19:40 pm »
Hi, I'm going by "RoseMary" on this forum.

How's everyone doing this holiday season?

A little about myself: I'm 28 years old, Sapiosexual, Geek, Gamer, Recluse, lover, and friend.

I live nature reserves, beaches, and I'd be dead without music. A love a good TV series, but havent the attention span to stay interested long term (Even if I really love the show (I'm wierd, I know lol).

I'm trying to go back to school so I can get a good job. I love cooking and doing photography (just started, and I'm loving it! I'm hoping I can eventually make money with my photography (so I can get off disability and start saving for retirement.. (I'm already worried that I'm too late of a late bloomer)..

Also, I'm a writer. Again, Ive never finished a script or book due to my horrible attention span... I get bored so quickly..

Anyways, I'm also HIV positive.. undetectable for almost a decade.

I hope to make great new friends here.. I'm extremely lonely, especially this time of year.. (Mom passed recently, holidays and certain days without her.. it tears me to shreds..)

Blessings to all.

Cool. Writing process could be in parts prehaps, instead of seeing it as unfinished. Leave it and come back to it later.

Any particular genre of writing?

Hello RoseMary -

Nice to meet you. I understand your loneliness - for me it is more by choice but I do get lonely at times.

Do you like poetry? I love James Kavanaugh - I think he is amazing!

Know you are not alone in this world.

Congrats on being undetectable for a decade - I hope to get there soon myself.

Thanks, I do love poetry, not familiar with the man who'd mention. I'll look him up.

And yes, my loneliness is by choice, i choose to not face my fears.

Congrats on being undetectable for so long.
