I love finding this forum!
I'm a child of the 80's here as well, and have always been considered one of the "weird girls". I was that (overweight) freak in high school that no one really talked to, but I also stayed under everyone's radar. Those I did communicate with were real friends, and one became my best friend of the last 20 some odd years. This gave me a perverse desire to be different from everyone all the time, and though I don't try to call attention to myself because I'm so shy, I'd say that desire to be different is still there.
I'm another cheerful person, but love alternative music and metal. No tattoos, but hope to get one one day. I think it'll be one of my weight loss rewards. Hopelessly addicted to World of Warcraft, and can't wait for the new expansion!
I look forward to getting to know everyone here!
