Returning after a while
« on: July 04, 2023, 11:02:29 AM »

Though I have lurked from time to time, it's been years since I've actually posted anything.  I'm gonna reintroduce myself here since I am a completely different person from when I joined in 2017.

- I've been spending most of my life living in the Amish Paradise of Lancaster County, PA. 
- When I joined in 2017, I was 14, an awkward teenager if one ever existed, so I apologize in hindsight for being cringey.  For example, I remember stating that I didn't think there was any good music after 1986.  I have since broadened my musical tastes  :bigass:
- Though I'm on gap year right now, I am currently attending Reputable Post-Secondary Institution in I-Don't-Want-To-Doxx-Myself, USA (cause where I go to school, only so many people from Lancaster go there, never mind roadgeeks).  My major is geography, and I want to do something in the realm of urban planning, transportation planning, and or GIS. 
- I still love roads and looking at maps.  Now that I drive, I love to do that too.

I'm gonna try to be more active now, but I got life happening at the same time, so I may or may not be active every day all the time.  Still, I look forward to discussing roads with y'all.

Welcome back. I was once like that as an earlier teenager...I was one of those kids that thought they were hot shit for only listening to classic rock while the rest of my peers listened to "mumble rap". Thank god I grew out of that. And really everything else I did as a teenager. I wouldn't sweat it too much, there are plenty of us who joined at very young ages and posted a lot of stupid stuff, such as myself.

You aren't alone in your major - a lot of people here have similar ones. I myself am majoring in community/regional planning with a GIS certificate, minor undecided. I may pick geology as a minor to try and give myself an edge in the more environmental aspects of the fields that my major can get me into.

Lmao that was me alright.

I figured as much given the crowd.  Idk what my minor will be but I'm leaning towards comp sci or history.

Welcome back. I've only been here since 2020, but I shall mention that I've been one of those kids who thought they were better than other people for listening to old music instead of mumble rap. Now, I've of course matured... and I mean, one of my favorite artists (well, this one is a collective of people) is SiIvaGunner, so I really can't judge anyone's music tastes when stuff like this or this is in my playlists.

Welcome back.  Nothing wrong with older music.  I attended 16 Grateful Dead shows between the ages of 12 and 19, so yeah, I get it.  My mom was at Woodstock and my dad was into prog rock, so it’s pretty much what I grew up on.
