Semi-Sorta New - February 25th 2009, 11:17 PM


So I was encouraged to come here by a Buddy of the site, so I figured why not up and write an introduction? :]

I was around earlier and mid-2008 but things grew to be insane come the new school year (college applications etc.) and I ended up falling off pretty much completely. Have felt compelled to re-join the site for a while now, been "stalking" its pages as a non-member, and finally decided there was a reason for the pull and re-signed up.

Not really sure what there is to say about me. My name is Elliotte, though it's quite a spelling and most people end up referring to me as either Ellie or Evie, neither of which I prefer over the other. I'm seventeen-years-old and live in California, where I'm finishing up my senior year.

I'm better at these things if I allow for questions, so feel free to ask me what you like and I will answer it best I can.

Looking forward to getting to know you,
Elliotte


If you don't get what you want, you suffer; if you get what you don't want, you suffer; even when you get exactly what you want, you still suffer because you can't hold on to it forever. Your mind is your predicament. It wants to be free of change. Free of pain, free of the obligations of life and death. But change is a law, and no amount of pretending will alter that reality.

The weather's been rather up and down, really. We had a couple weeks the sun was blazing and it was, in my opinion, rather too hot. Then it turned a complete 180 and we had cloudy days, stormy nights (a couple big big storms thrown in), and rain off and on. I quite love it if even it's been messing with my mood.

Hai Ellie, I'm Ellie Although I'm really Ellie, I haven't got a super-cute-pretty name that I've shortened. Elliotte even looks pretty! Anywho, if you're semi-sorta new I semi-sorta welcome you [back] to TH! It's good to have you here :]

As for questions! - What sort of music are you into? How do you spend your free time? I love question games like that so I could go on all day If you fancy a full on question game, or if you have any questions of your own regarding the site or other feel free to PM me and I'll be happy to help out!

I look forward to seeing you around and getting to know you some more soon :]

I forgot how nice of a community we have here... Nice to meet you all.

And hello to a fellow Ellie! I actually remember you from before. Happy to see someone has questions for me and I'll probably end up dropping you a line, too. It can take me a while to get into question mode myself but I love answering questions and it's always a pleasure getting to know someone new.

Quote:
What sort of music are you into?
Music, well, let's see... I'm not a big music person (I can't answer trivia, don't know many popular songs/artists, and can't remember most song titles/artists to save my life). No preferences, really, though I'm not hugely fond of rap. I grew up on country and classic rock, though a lot of my childhood was spent listening to classical, as well. I don't have a favourite band - however, I do have a favourite song: Runaway Train by Soul Asylum; it's been my favourite song since I heard it first at fourteen - and I tend to go through phases, my most recent being Mariana's Trench which followed Mayday Parade. At the moment, my guilty pleasure song would have to be Hot 'N' Cold for relationship-related reasons, though it stopped me from moping to Funeral Song so I'm letting go of the fact I'm not a huge Katy Perry fan.

How about yourself?

Quote:
How do you spend your free time?
Hurr. To be honest with you, I spend most of my free time chatting away at the computer - I can spend hours doing nothing but. I also spend a lot of time reading, though, and used to spend a lot of it writing, as well, although due to how I've been feeling physically and emotionally, my writing "career" has been put on hold. Not to mention my Spanish course (online) has become more of a Spanish writing course, and that's in addition to an extensive English course I'm taking at the community college, so... Not so much free writing going on there.

When it comes to the oudoors, I like to walk (I have a special trail near our home) and I adore going to the beach (I could spend hours curled up napping in the sand). Swimming is something I'm hoping to get back into, actually, which is a big step for me (I'm stealing a brag moment). For one, it means working through the feelings of being so ashamed of my scars that I let them stop me from doing what I love to do. For another, it means continuing on the path to recovering from five years of SH and not relapsing back into it.

And you?

Should I be returning/answering these questions here, or should I be taking it to PMs.


If you don't get what you want, you suffer; if you get what you don't want, you suffer; even when you get exactly what you want, you still suffer because you can't hold on to it forever. Your mind is your predicament. It wants to be free of change. Free of pain, free of the obligations of life and death. But change is a law, and no amount of pretending will alter that reality.

Hey Elliotte, I know loads of people have beaten me to it, but I love the spelling of your name ^_^
I'm Janos, pleased to meet you ^_^ And its okay, its still an introduction, so you can, but if you want to move the conversation onto VMs/PMs, thats totally okay =)

First of all, welcome back to the site.
I guess everyone else has already filled you in on the essentials, but I thought I'd pop in too. You sound like a really cool person, and I'm glad you've decided to rejoin, our community can always use more people like yourself ^^ . Wow..a beach, hehe, I'm a complete city boy, born and raised in Glasgow, the beach to me is always this mythical place apart from the occasional trip where I wasn't really allowed to relax due to the presence of siblings, lol. I really envy you =P
Hehe, anyways, if you've got any questions about anything or just want to chat, feel free to message me.
Other than that, I'll see you around! =)
