Re: The "Making Friends" Thread

I'm too old to make new friends...I've locked in my group and it's unlikely to change.

On this site, however, I suppose I'm open to anything. I'm already out of my comfort zone posting here, but then again, my comfort zone is profoundly limited.

CROSSY ROAD, I see you're from Nevada, that's something we have in common. I don't come across many Nevadans on the internet in general.

Anyway, to those who are interested:

My name is Miles, I'm a 25-year-old graduate student from northern Nevada, I'm Hispanic, I study philosophy and English literature, I am deeply interested in religion, ethics, religious history, language history, and current social issues. I'm a frequent debater and player of devil's advocate. I'm socially inept, but I do enjoy a good party with close friends. I feel especially at home out in nature and use every opportunity I can to get outside.

Those are some preliminaries, I'll stop it there before I scare anyone off

Wow! Criminal psychologist? Is it similar to a profiler or BAU?

Hey, everyone! I am Lisa, will turn 32 next year.
I used to watch anime in my school days, but now, not really. I still watch TV shows regularly from comedies (Frasier, Black-ish, Modern Family) to sci-fi (Black Mirror) to police procedural (Criminal Minds, Mentalist).
Hi Lisa! I love Frasier! Definitely one of my favorite shows. Modern Family is great as well.
To answer your question, TBH I'm not sure haha. As far as I know the difference is that the BAU helps out with crimes that are on a time crunch or of high status and a profiler studies a criminals behavior for clues to capture them. While a criminal psychologist studies every part of a criminal to know why they do what they do.
I'm not very far along, only like 3 years in that field so far. I am taking a break from that to become a certified fitness trainer.

What are you reading right now?
I'm reading "After Me Comes The Flood", I'm only a couple of chapters in but enjoying it so far. It's quite Gothic, which is a genre I don't read very often.

I would feel weird running into someone that I knew in person. When I run I feel like everybody knows me even if most of them don't, it's weird. Also I find that running lacks variation, so I get quite impatient when doing it. I suppose running could help to clear my mind and organise my thoughts... But so does kickboxing haha. And don't even get me started on zumba. Just no.

She really is skilled. I'm listening to her music right now, and I love how she is able to combine her violin playing with all kinds of music, from soundtrack to hip hop to dubstep. It's fantastic.
That's fair enough, it's not for everyone. Zumba is supposed to be fun, or so I've heard, but I'm so bad at it that it just makes me miserable haha.

Yeah the variation is incredible- I've just seen that she put a new album out this year *runs to listen to it*
I don't read that genre often either, perhaps I'll read it this year.

Creativemind- Definitely! Fantasy and sci-fi are actually my two favorite genres to write about. What about you? And I'm glad I found another psychology nerd!
AnAtypicalGuy- Yeah, there do seem to be a lot of writers here ! I wonder why that is. And I love to write about anything involving fantasy or magic. It's such an escape from how boring life can be. I am about a quarter through the Attack on Titan manga (it's reaaallllyyy long though), and it's so intense already!! I'm interested to see how things could take a twist even further. Who's your favorite character so far?
AuroraBorealis- That's awesome!! We may as well be the same person. What area of psychology are you interested in?
Kaden216- I haven't read the Naruto manga yet, but my sister has and she says it's awesome! I will have to start reading soon. What sort of websites do you create? And I'd say that really any expression of yourself counts as art, it doesn't have to be any of ways I mentioned--there are so many more forms art can take .
pd04- That's SO COOL!!! You know, my brother's girlfriend is actually in school to be a criminal psychologist too, and she says that even the training is really interesting. Any other areas of psychology you're interested in ?
Yeah, it is really fascinating! I love every area of psychology, it was hard for me to choose which field I wanted to go into with it. People are just so interesting!
It's going to be a while, though, because I'm currently taking a break from school to become a certified fitness trainer.

Never too old to make new friends, Miles. But, I sometimes feel that I am too old to do a lot of stuff especially when I travel.

Hey ho, another socially awkward person. I don't do too well in big group, but I am much better at having a one on one conversation.

Re: The "Making Friends" Thread

Hi I'm mourning dove! I guess this will be my first post so here goes...

I love birds, (if you can't tell by the name) video games, especially those that involve strategy like LoL and total war, though I'm bad at both. I love music especially ska (streetlight manifest, the special ect) mod (the Who, the Jam, small faces) and a variety of punk ( the Clash, Cock Sparrer, BTMI). I'm obsessed with the ancient world, especially Rome, so much so that I'm learning latin. I'm a republican... haha just kidding, I'm just about the complete opposite, I'm a marxist. I plan on either becoming an ornithologist or somthing else idk I got another year of high school left

Omg someone else who listens to ska! Irl and on the internet I can count almost everyone I met who listens to ska on one hand. Reel big fish was th first concert I ever went to. Are you into the older stuff too, like the special or madness? I sorta stayed In a very narrow lane when it came to ska because between 1983 to the late 90´s there were a lot of cheesy bands out there, but ever ska fan can count on good´ol Streetlight manifest to be freaking amazing.

Ha, I actually don't know anybody else that listens to ska outside of the internet. My first ska concert was a Streetlight show, I actually just bought a ticket to one of their upcoming shows. I do indeed listen to older ska and punk.

Re: The "Making Friends" Thread

I've always struggled to make friends, I'm socially awkward at the best times and possibly, no definitely, a little weird the rest of the time.

Anywho... I listen to metal. Love to play games on my PC even though I'm too crap a player to finish even half my games lol. I enjoy sci-fi, I'm not a geek tho. For me it's an escape from reality to wondrous far off places.

Re: The "Making Friends" Thread

Hallo...

I'm an awkward duck, small in stature and have a passion for graphic T-shirts... My vocabulary consists half of "dude" "man" and "yall" mixed with random dictionary terms. I love literature and poetry, play the flute (sort of kind of) but don't really listen to music or watch TV.

Uh.
That's it.

Re: The "Making Friends" Thread

Hi,

I'm a psychology major living in Oregon. I enjoy reading, writing, music- particularly singing (everything from a capella to rock), video games, and anime. I also love long nature walks and swimming. I'm shy in person and pretty introverted.

Re: The "Making Friends" Thread

Hi! I'm Kendall. I'm really shy but once you get to know me, I think I'm pretty fun. I love sports and music - those are my two passions. I'm a very big hockey fan. I play volleyball and basketball, as well as sing and play guitar. I'm very pensive and would consider myself an ambivert. Although, I have no social skills whatsoever, and honestly not many friends. But that's just because I'm awkward- I love having friends!

Heyo I'm Kevin but I'm fine with Kemo as well. I'm also awkward like I suck at making eye to eye contact with someone or it could be shyness. Once you get to know me i show my dorky side and will most likely spam you with memes and such. Anyways what's up?

I guess Ill add my interests. I love cartoons, reading, anime, video games, drawing, singing, and dancing.
