INTRoDucTIONS: How old are you and where do you live...?

Postby Liberal Fairy » 02 Jan 2007, 03:43

37 soon to be 38, single, no kids,  living on Merseyside (other side of the Mersey to Liverpool and no I havent met the Beatles :)  )

Struggling to find time to work through the bardic grade since June 2003

Play guitar and sing in a cabaret type band , and wanting to learn so many things at once that I end up spending more time worrying about all the things that I need/want to do that I end up not doing anything   :-(
I thought they'd officially changed the Wirral postcodes to Chester ones now! (Much to my dismay) - I lived there till I was about 11. Where abouts are you? I was in Pensby.

I live in Southampton now, UK. I'm 25, female... umm, I have a boyfriend, who I'm planning to be moving in with later this month - all being well. Any others from Southampton on here?

Well since im new hear as well, I should introduce myself to yall.  My name is Jason, I reside just west of Ft Worth, TX.  I am 24 years.  I have been interested in Druidry for several years now, although not knowing where to begin.  I hope to find some people here that are close to my location, hopefully someone that i can learn a thing or two from.  I am single, with no kids.  My mind is free to learn as much as it can, so im asking for your help, for i am ready to learn.

Sabona! I've been wandering this website for the past few days but thought I would finally say hello.  :)

 I'm 23 and currently residing in London (Ontario) with my wife, while I work on a university degree in Zoology. About 10 years ago, I started on my Path after befriending a rather unique individual and during high school, I started to explore the Druid ways, especially given some of my rather fun experiences. It wasn't until recently however that I realized how much I need to focus on being a Druid and finding ways to talk with other people who share similar beliefs.

 Some late-night readings brought me to OBOD, which is definitely starting to look like the place I should be! I'm hoping that in the future I can enrol in the Bardic program. :D

Slàinte!

Although not especially new here, I thought I would introduce myself.

I used to be on the boards before my move out west, but that was about a year and a half ago. Having forgotten the name and password I had used prior to the move, I decided to go ahead and start fresh.

A fresh start on the boards, to go along with the changes that has ultimatly happened with this move.

I am 27 years old and I live in Central Washington State, USA. Opposite side of the Cascade Mountains than Seattle, so I don't get all that rain. Beautiful land with a National Forest as a neighbor, litterally, the land I live on borders one.

I've been interested in Druidry most of my life. Despite the books I've read, discussions I've particpated in in the past..  I have not truely taken the length of time to live it. I hope to change that.

I have been lurking around here for some time now, and thought it time to introduce myself.
I'm 22, and call myself heathen (and Traditionalist) since about 2 years. I'm planning to take te OBOD course within a few years (when I have the money to do so, I'm only a poor student  :wink: ).
You won't see a lot of me, as I tend to be shy and silent most of the time (even among friends), and that suites me very well.

I'm glad I found this forum, and look forward to learning as much as I can.

Hi all,

having spent a good long while walking some very difficult paths, it felt the right time to return home and to join this board.

I'm 37 and live in the North East of England and I began my work within Druidry and OBOD back in 1988.... and it really doesn't seem that long ago!!  Druidry is something I felt a strong call to and since beginning this journey with the first Bardic Gwers all those years ago, it has never left me.  

After quite a strange route, I now find myself working within mental health as a holistic therapist and project worker.

If anyone reading this used to know me from the days of the Northern/Brigantia Grove, give me a shout, I would love to catch up and find out all that has been going on.
