Welcome newbies!!!

by posting here, you've done the first great thing by introducing yourself!!!

Few things about the boards,

you won't offend us if you post away, in relevant thread. Posting about the world of warcraft of escorts won't get you in our good books.

If there is any thread you don't see, but are wondering if we have something relevant to that topic, pop on over to the community forum and ask. Chances are that there is a thread, it's just dropped out of sight.

If you're unsure about posting, by all meants lurk until you get the feel of the thread.

Also, please please PLEASE, do not start a new thread without asking in the community forum first, see my second point.

welcome all and happy posting!!!

Hello, my name is Jessica. I'm 22 and an aspiring writer from New Jersey. I love living here - beautiful beaches are five minutes from my house, and NYC is a 1 hour train ride away (or 30 minutes by ferry!). I would love to make some friends from the central Jersey/Jersey Shore area, so if you're out there, say hi! I love music, baking, wine and animals. I really want to learn to knit and my favorite Beatle is George Harrison (<---two random facts). Look forward to meeting you all!

I'm a newbie too...I've already posted in the large busties thread because that's where I first found this site (I spent hours reading it & that's where I can relate the best as well!) Just want to introduce myself and hopefully I didn't mess things up by posting in the other thread first. I'm 32, a newlywed, and in AZ where it is currently 113 degrees outside*Blech!!! * I'm open to making friends and getting/giving advice if needed. smile.gif

I wanted to mention that I also have been having issues with uploading a personal pic as well...not the avatar, just the personal pic...Thanks!

Hello All!
I am so pleased to have found you all!
I am a high risk ob nurse, a mom a wife and an artist.
I have also not been on a newsgroup in a while. So forgive me cause I don't really remember how to do this.
I am interested in posting on the "go ahead ask me about my abotion" group, not only as someone who had one at 17 but as a nurse who helps patients with this difficult decision and provides care to those who walk this difficult path. Do I need to be a member for a while before I post? Thanks so much and bright blesings to all here!! what a great site!
nightingale!

Nice to meet you all!

I'm just a lech trying to find out what women think. Someone, maybe the Goddess, left a copy of the Atlantic in my bathroom with a rap on new genre's in women's literature. Along with the standard classic Romance, there were now the revenge novels where she gets back at him for being dumped, the book about picking the right college, getting the right degree, and then going out to find the perfect......job. Or, after finding the perfect man, discovering what a thankless job it was raising his kids from his airhead first wife.

Then, someone left a copy of Cosmopolitan, (I'll read anything) that had a report from a 30 something, disparing of ever meeting Mr. Wright, who went to a fertility clinic and now has the perfect... baby.

Every few years, I get a subscription to Playboy to see what young men are being told. Looking them over, I see it has become quaint. So, I got a subscription to Hustler, and if you actually read, rather than just look, its more cutting edge, socially active, like Playboy usta be. But I dont needa look at pictures to get horney.

Then, I got more recent copies of Cosmopolitan and Glamour, and sense the change; there's still raps on how to find and keep your man, but there's also some now on how to get more out of whatever life, or sex life, you are already having. Then, in the feb 09 Cosmo, "The Surprising Way to Feel Happier", on pg 139, which is, pure Zen. A remarkable contrast to all the upscale merchandise ads. Well, we all havta start somewheres.

But then, I saw the link to Bust, so thot I'd see if there was a more leading edge. And I'd get a subscription, but I got an upcoming test case on medical marijuana in Arkansas coming up in Oct, when they mite throw my ass in jail. So, I dont make any long term plans.

But looking for new social models, have you all seen or looked up the Mosuo?

Look at the longer video. Whatever they are doing does not seem to fit into any of the genres of womens literature I know of.

Thank YOU Auralpoison!
Um, where is the place to ask about how I can find a thread I was reading on my first day which seems to have gotten buried under the pyramids?
It was something like, "what do you call your vagina"... I was loving that thing.

And. You girls make me feel like I've finally come home. Thank you.

First, I should probably start by apologizing incase my username might offend anyone. So, if I've offended you, I am truly sorry. biggrin.gif

So, I'm Melissa, I'm 24 and I'm from the grayest place on earth, Cleveland Ohio! I've actually have been reading Bust for years, and never realized there was a forum here. I'm really excited I stubbled on to this place. A little more about myself, I love music and movies and I'm a hugh art enthusiast! I love art in all different types of mediums. I also love to read, and to drink black coffee (preferably that combo at the same time). And one of my dreams for the future is to become a belly dancer.

Im really looking forward to getting to know the members here.

Hi everyone! I didn't read the entire thread, but my name is Brianna. I've been reading Bust off and on for a couple of years now and just recently re-subscribed (something had to give while I was out of work and magazines were one of those somethings).

Anywho, I'm 27, work at the library, love to embroider and scrapbook and take pictures. I have a super fantastic new boyfriend who lives 9 hours away, but we're making it work. I love to read and learn about anything and everything.

Good morning new people! Nice to see you around these parts. biggrin.gif

bconga - thanks for the link to your project. If you are considering starting a new thread, please, please PLEASE ask in The Community Forum first. That will let you know if there is enough interest here to make it happen. Thanks.
Laura is Great
Hey everyone. My name is Laura. I live in Ohio. I like bicycles, guitars, writing, cats, and making jewelry.

I've been reading Bust for a couple years now, and love it to bits.

I really can't think of anything else to say.

Hi everyone. I'm Zoe, 21, a senior majoring in Psychology and extremely new to Bust. I took a Women's studies class last semester that really made me interested in feminisim, so I've been taking everything I can find to learn more about it.

Hope to have some fun with this forum smile.gif
koffeewitch
Hey there new sisters (and you few brave brothers):

I'm a thirty-something crafty, lactivist, homeschooling mama from the armpit of Columbus, Ohio.

When coherent( when I've gotten atleast 3 hours of sleep), I read, knit, crochet, spin yarn, sew, dream, bake vegan goodies, seek out great films, and do a bit of bellydancing. I'm interested in all aspects of midwifery, herbal medicine and other lost arts of women. (and yeah, I live with way too many cats...sometimes there are stereotypes for a reason, I guess). rolleyes.gif

My current movie fetish: I love vietnamese director Tran Ahn Hung...Cyclo, Vertical Ray of the Sun, Scent of Green Papaya are some of his works.

I'm a friendly/approachable sort of grrl, so feel free and encouraged to hit me up with comments/questions about any shared interests, pursuits or (for Columbus-ites) our unfortunate mutual locale.

I also am peer counselor to new breastfeeding mamas. (Cause it's not just YOU, it really is kinda frustrating the first few weeks). I HATE to hear of mamas who really wanted to breastfeed, but gave up due to lack of information/support. So nursing moms, I always welcome you.

Looking forward to meeting you all!

I started out cabaret and moved into a tribal style as I learned more. It's such a beautiful art form; wish I was more proficient. I still grab up books/dvds etc. when I see them, I just haven't devoted as much time to practice in the last 2 or 3 years. I'm looking to startup again as the weather gets colder. Besides just having had a baby, I tend to feel a little down in the winter months and bellydancing is a wonderful antidepressant.

How about you?
Do you do a lot of public performances/belong to a troupe or do you use dance as a more personal expression?

I am a classically trained cabaret dancer, but I have had a minimal amount of tribal training. I have taught a very little bit. I have been dancing for seven years. I don't do any regular paying gigs anymore, but I have in the past. If there is a festival nearby I will go. I do take class semi regularly, both at private schools and at my university. I also host Haflas in my home on occasion. OPA!

Hi Ladies (and others), I hope you will let me join your uber-fun community!

I am 33, I cook, sew, knit, read, complain and try to find peace in my world. I love quilting, comic books and video games. I am married, with 2 kids and in my spare time, I am pursuing a Master's degree in psychology. I live in Toronto.

I just started reading BUST and stumbled across this forum. I am hoping to find like-minded individuals to explore ideas and sometimes just to rant.

AbleDanger
Hi everyone, I am in my late 20s, love to sew, knit when I'm bored in courses, and actually, well, am just generally very bored in my life! Not too sure what to do about that but I ended up here. In the daytime I work with children and youth, and in the night revel in my recent singleness. Actually, revel so much that I might post a list of all the brilliant things of single life in your great in praise of singledom thread!

Welcome everyone else new, I'm so glad to have found this forum!!!

Hi, all. My name's Emily, and I'm a first-year student in college in a totally unfamiliar part of the United States. I enjoy reading, writing, gardening, um.... Bright colors? Badminton? Dance music? I don't know, I'm never sure what to put in introduction posts. Anyway, I started reading BUST a few months ago when I decided that I needed to expand my magazine-reading horizons, and so far I definitely like what I've seen.

Holy moly! A whole buncha newbies! WELCOME! The bar is open, the food is being passed around & the music is swell. Have fun!

Hi, my names Charisse, and I'm an Audio Production student in Seattle. I love Bust magazine, and I buy it everytime I see a new one on the newsstand at the grocery store by my apartment. I am also a huge nerd and entertainment junkie, so if anyone wants to see my blog its Native Audio Grrrl
rubyvroom
hey my name is ruby and I have been a Bust reader since 1996. I had a collection of every issue since then but it got lost in a move, I was soooo pissed. Anyway I love writing, reading, music, crafts, and anything Bust-y. I'm a 31 year old mama who loves the feel of this zine, and the vibe it creates, so I try to live my life by the creedo "what would Joan Jett do?", because you know what she'd do? She'd ROCK OUT!

Hi-
I'm not technically new as I used to visit this site a lot a few years ago. Love the site, love the magazine. I'm back because I need some advice from smart ladies-
but I'm not sure which thread to post in.... it's about dealing with problems I'm having with my partner, in the bedroom, which I think are linked to their having been molested as a child and abused in a past relationship. Should I post under the Mating Game? Start a new thread?
thanks in advance

Hello!

How are you all? I am back to this site after a very long hiatus. Looking forward to getting reaquainted here.

Let's see. A little about me? I am 36, married, my husband is in the military and currently deployed. We have 3 kiddos - Gunnar 4, Karma 2 and Hiromi who just turned 1. 3 kids in 3.5 years... yep, I am insane. lol. We live in TX.

I am an artist to the core. Currently I am taking online classes working towards getting a photovoltaic intallers license in order to install solar panels on my artistic playhouses. My long term goal is to make my playhouses into a business.

Hobbies... anything that I can create with my hands interests me. I love salsa dancing, good food, interesting people, traveling and any new adventure that comes across my path. smile.gif

Well, I am going to start poking around. See ya all around!
