Just read it, cool article.

Oh yes, that... I sort of assumed only people already interested in discordianism paid any attention to that.  What a cynic I've become.

Hello, everyone!

This was my original introduction post:
http://www.principiadiscordia.com/forum/index.php?topic=26073.msg910438#msg910438

I'm.... well, back!
Not that anyone cares (or even remembers), I know!
I was a relatively active member of this forum in 2010 and kind of disappeared then (again, not that I think it was noticed, lol). At the time I was going through a lot of stuff and PD was the perfect place for me to be. At the time I left new things started to happen and I decided to focus on my new projects and goals. I graduated in Gastronomy and used to work kitchen chef/restaurant manager, which prove to be really shitty in so many ways, so I just started anew as a translator. It worked out and I managed to finally leave the huge disgusting city I lived in and moved in to the countryside with my new gf (who is awesome).
The main reason I left PD was that it seemed to require too much attention. This forum is so lively that skipping a day involved a huge amount of reading to catch up with everything, and I wanted to know what was going on, as well as all the back reading required to understand some of the jokes (will never forget the Orange Eating Contest post).
However, I missed it. Never again have I found a forum where people had so much freedom to be and say what they wanted, but also were so close (even when most had never actually met each other). So, today I decided to see if it still existed. Then I proceeded to see if the same people were active, and they WERE, and that is saying something.
I don't remember many after all this time. I remember Cramulus, of course, with whom I parlay'd sometimes, and Cain, and also some Doctor who had this cool picture of him with some Evil Genius glasses I want for myself to this day, among some others. If any of you sees this and don't remember me, I understand completely lol.
I actually suggested to GASM projects at the time:
http://www.principiadiscordia.com/forum/index.php?topic=26138.0
http://www.principiadiscordia.com/forum/index.php?topic=26130.15

It seems neither got anywhere after I left, which is a shame, but if anyone would want to revive them, please be my guest. I have particular interest for MusicGASM since now I actually study at a conservatory and take music much more seriously than I already did at the time.

Well, this is it. Considering the time elapsed I thought it would be appropriate to introduce myself again.
Since I do a lot of stuff now (language teaching, Japanese course, conservatory classes, occasional translation, side projects) I decided that I would avoid being TOO participative so as to avoid losing precious time I need for everything, but I sure missed you guys, and you should notice my presence on the forums once again =)

Kind regards,

Welcome back.  I doubt the forum will be too frantic for you at this point.

Welcome back!
I have some vague memories of someone like you.

Hey there, new guy!

I seem to have missed your previous presence entirely.
