Just realized I never popped a thread up when I first joined!

A short (very brief) bio:

I'm 17, I'm from Scotland, male and I love Tolkien (oh and I'm hoping to get at least 3 A's in my Highers which will come through on August 5th gggrrrrrr :? )
Greetings Felagund,

Nice to meet someone from near my home turf <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' /> . I herald from Dorset, England originally, and transplanted to the USA. My background is a lot of Welsh and Irish though. Good Luck on your Highers (A levels? :? ).

Cheers Beren! <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' /> I love your enthusiasm btw (although I daresay we might have enraged some oldies as well as some of our younger teenage brethren <img src='/images/smileys/wink.gif' border='0' alt='Wink Smilie' /> ) Where are you from? Are me and Gandy the only ones from Britannia? :mrgreen:

OH and Hello to all you 14 year olds - Beren meant no offence! You are all very much teenagers 8-) 8-)
Gandy works Fela :lol: . That's a new one on me. I'm on the central coast of California so we get a bit of Fog in the summer. Makes it feel just like the Motherland sometimes.

California looks brilliant. <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' /> I remember the Salinas Valley when I read "East of Eden" at school - I think its in California, no??? :roll:
Yes it is. And it's in the next county South of me (I live in the county Lost Boys was filmed in). It's a little further inland and hotter than Santa Cruz. But the California Central Coast is beautiful. There are some forests and Coastal Cliffs that wouldn't be out of place in Middle-Earth.

You joined in May, Hobbitz joined in June. I'm still getting to know you guys.
At first, it was only GB, Show, Otto's World, and me. I was the only teen. So my best friends on this forum are all oldies <img src='/images/smileys/wink.gif' border='0' alt='Wink Smilie' />. What I was saying was that it's been nice getting some younger people on here. Haha, it's been funny seeing you guys' reactions to my comment :lol: . I said it mainly to find out how you'd react <img src='/images/smileys/wink.gif' border='0' alt='Wink Smilie' /> . (teeheehee...)

You can lay off the compliments now...I'm still reeling from Otto's reaction to my age waaaay back when. lol...

Hehe... what an incredibly useless topic we have created! Never the less, this becomes our "cafeteria", when were not at work <img src='/images/smileys/wink.gif' border='0' alt='Wink Smilie' />

Hey there's an idea <img src='/images/smileys/wink.gif' border='0' alt='Wink Smilie' /> Why not make a totally random section on the forum up called, "Cafe" were you can just talk about random stuff (like those Norwegian biscuits - see Other Fantasy Stories section - you must give me the recipe!!!)

Ouch! I didn't know I was OLD! I'm only 26. Granted, I feel old sometimes. Damn kids with their long hair and stupid clothes. Add in married with one child and I guess I am a grown up. When did this happen though?!

And don't worry, I do not take any offense to being called old. I just like to be humoriously outraged from time to time.
I know how you feel, Show. Sometimes even I wonder where the time went. I dread growing up, and yet I am excited. It's all part of the journey, so I suppose we all need to let go of our childhood sometime. But, thankfully, we will always have a little bit of a kid in us.
Don't sweat growing up, it always seems to happen when you're not looking.
Just enjoy whatever you're doing.
You never seem to notice it when you grow up. It's only some day in the future that you stop, look back, and realise, "Hey! I've grown up!"
Hopefully you're thinking about some wonderful life goal accomplishment, and not looking in a mirror at your now graying and/or falling out hair.
I bet Ill have a kind of childish behaviour no matter the age <img src='/images/smileys/wink.gif' border='0' alt='Wink Smilie' />

Just love making jokes and fooling around <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' /> And Im an actress-chick, so I better have many funny ideas :mrgreen:
I honestly can't believe either how fast the last few years have went by. Since I turned thirteen, the last 4 years have just flew by in a blink! <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' /> I've just turmed 17 last month and I still can't believe I am 17. Its frightening! :|

Maybe it will slow down once I leave the School...hopefully lol <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' />
What do you mean frightening? <img src='/images/smileys/wink.gif' border='0' alt='Wink Smilie' />
[quote="Zackira":tn87ytpt]What do you mean frightening? <img src='/images/smileys/wink.gif' border='0' alt='Wink Smilie' />[/quote:tn87ytpt]

I mean the speed <img src='/images/smileys/wink.gif' border='0' alt='Wink Smilie' /> I like been 17 but before I know it I'll probably be 30 if you get my drift, it just goes so fast! <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' /> Thats why I guess we must enjoy it now
I get you <img src='/images/smileys/wink.gif' border='0' alt='Wink Smilie' /> Though, for my part, it goes way too slow...Im not complaining, but people have problems taking me seriously cause of my age :?

Kira you are an extremely smart, deep person <img src='/images/smileys/wink.gif' border='0' alt='Wink Smilie' /> I'm sure every one here will agree. Your only 3 years younger than me (which is nothing). Your the same age as my cousin. But I see were your coming from <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' /> When I first posted on forums I was 12 :shock: So I pretended I was 21 :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Yes, I actually did - and no one found out!

Be happy to be young Kira! You won't be 14 forever <img src='/images/smileys/wink.gif' border='0' alt='Wink Smilie' /> Gosh I won't be a teenager forever, I'm nearly 20 meself :roll: Think of that when your my age I'll be 20 (and hopefully at Uni :roll: :roll: :roll: )

Believe me see when you get to 16 and start your exams it flies by so fast because your so busy. Trust me, I know :mrgreen:
Ah..well Im turning 15 next month, so Im actually 2 years younger <img src='/images/smileys/wink.gif' border='0' alt='Wink Smilie' />

Well even less so <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' /> Two years ain't anything.

As I said my Norwegian friend (Bex) is still I think 14 :roll: But she might be 15 I just can't remember, uck who cares we're all teens anyway :lol:
BTW your not into something called, "Twilight" are you? Its about vampires and she loves it, as do many other girls I know. Drives me COO-KOO :roll: :roll: :roll:

Hey do you know I've just found a ZAKIRA Martial Arts Club on Google: http://www.zmabudo.com/
First; Ive seen the Twilight movie, and it was cool, but Im not like..a fan or something.

Second; theres a lot of stuff out there called Zakira. Im so glad my nick is with a "c", or it would be a common boring one.

Twilight <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' /> Its ok, I don't hate it that much I just hear them talking about it all the time.

As for Zackira, well, I have never heard of it before - so it isn't certainly ain't common to me! :mrgreen:
