    Hi.
    Because of severe social anxiety, I don't get out much, and I don't have many friends (or anyone close enough to call friends at all, really).
    I'm a hermit, basically, but I'm looking to talk to some like-minded people about stuff I enjoy, especially science fictiony stuff. Thus the profile here.
    Like hermits united.
    Meet up every few years, talk about caves.
    Good fun.

    My personal blog is over at Tumblr, in case you're interested in getting to see what I'm like. Drop me a line here or there if you want to talk about anything...except for news, sports, or politics. Let's stick to the fun topics. ;)

    Looking forward to hearing from someone,
    Rachel

    Space, zombies, robots, AI, aliens, all that fun stuff. :)
    I also like some fantasy, but I generally prefer sci-fi more.

    Rachel, welcome, you've found a friendly place to visit! :) Our community members run the gambit from full on extroverts to introverts (myself included on that group) so feel free to take part it any conversations to the degree that you're comfortable with.

    My personally... I'm the type of person who likes to be in the back of the room observing everybody else. I find it way more fascinating to observe than to be in the middle of the scene. My family has gotten used to it along with my quirk of not liking anybody behind me; whether it be in a restaurant or just walking in public, it drives me nuts if anybody is behind me.

    I was checking out your photography! :cool: Some nice shots. Should I ask "Canon or Nikon" or will that start a debate? :D (I'm on a budget so it's a Canon Rebel T4i for me.)

    Thanks, Kevin. :)

    No war from me. I use a Canon Rebel T3i. Photography is the one thing that will get me out of the house, and makes it easier to deal with social situations. It acts as a buffer, I guess. It's easier to talk to people if I have a camera, and I always see things I want to photograph, so I usually don't go anywhere without my camera. :)

    I also sell prints and such online, in case anyone's interested. ;) I'd like more people to buy them, but I don't have the money for advertising and I'm not great at self-marketing, so it is what it is. :-P
