I've kinda had a slightly rough internet life lately, so I'm givin it another shot!


Ok so. My username is Azalie (Ah-Zuh-Lee).

I'm 17 and from Michigan... Right now im going to college.. I'm not exactly sure for what though. I'm taking classes that could be for Graphic Arts or Web design. They both have their pros and cons, but I'm not too worried about that right now.

Um.. I've been dealing with computers my whole life. Actually i just made a power point presentation for my computers class if you'd like to see it. Lol.

But Yeah. My grandma bought a Mac it was a really old one when i was about 3 years old.
Then she bought a Packard Bell with Windows 3.1 on it when i was.. umm.. maybe 5... When she died, we inherited the computers. (Lucky me) So we upgraded to Windows 95 and got the internet.

I did a lot of stuff on my computer... I started making web sites when i was 9. I did IRC chatting a lot after that. I made several more websites. One of which was extremely successfull. The forums that went along with them had over 1,000 registered members with over 70,000 posts. But things went wrong and stuff died.

Uh... I'll list some things that I've done i guess now..


-GameFAQs writer
-Photography (little)
-About every IM invented X_X
-eBay *heart*
-LiveJournal
-BYOND (Build your own net dream)
-PHP websites
-Fanfiction / regular fiction
-Tutored computer classes
-Yahoo Answers (not a crazed N00b)
-Deviantart
-MMORPGs
-Tried Linux (but has a Winmodem [Frown] )
-Been foced to repair PC's due to horrible experiences with Windows ME
-Intellivision, NES, SNES, Genesis, Game Gear, GB,GBC,GBA, PS, PS2, GC addict


Um.. in school i have just about no friends. The people who i dont hate that i 'hang out' with just use me for my money at lunch time and stuff...

I live in a small town in michigan that i SWEAR to GOD is the least geeky town in the whole US.

Virtually everyone at my school is obsessed with drugs, sex, alcohol, probation, and sports.

None of which i care for WHATsoever..

some more stuff.. i guess. is. I'm asexual.. Meaning.. I have no interest for sex at all. But i still like non sexual relationships.. *cough*recenlysingle*COUGH* my ex ditched me basically cuz he was obsessing over linux too much to ever check his mail or log onto an IM.

Oh well.

Um about me physically i guess.. SHIELD YOUR EYES. lol.
Well i have big (not thick) glasses... I love big glasses because im not squinting to see stuff clearly o_O. I have loooooooooooooooong brown hair (regretfully. with some blonde highlights) its about down to meh butt. People say it's really pretty.. Uhm.. But when i go to hair places they say "OMG SPLIT ENDS MUST CUT THEM" and personally i think hair that goes to a point looks better than hair that is at a 90 degree angle reverse plateu-type thing. o_O anddddd lets just say i am not a skinny anorexic... type girl.. whatsoever. Lol. i really dont care on how i look. it's stupid. (LOOK INSIDEEEEE Omg!~~$)


Um.. i like sarcasm and inside jokes a lot. Uh.. Domo-kun, nachos, pizza, not talking to stupid people or whores. I like anime.. Like chobits, DearS, Love Hina, Naruto (NOT DUBBED), Orphen, Sailor Moon, Pokemon, Hamtaro, etc.

I dont like mecha anime... um.. It just doesnt appeal to me.

For video games.. I like RPGs, some action games, and uhm... quick play games.. Like.. Final Fantasys, Graffiti Kingdom, Magic Pengel, any DDR, Stepmania, Karaoke Revolution, Star Ocean, Earthbound, Mother 1 + 3, Ape Escape Primed and Pumped, Any zelda game except Wind waker, Breath of fires, donkey kong countrys, any mario game but mario 64. (especially super mario RPG and the paper marios) Crystalis (not NES not gameboy), Dragon warrior, The GBC harry potter games, any pokemon, any harvest moon. Stuff like that.


For music, i love techno stuff (like stuff from DDR), i like few pop things, some classical, some rock/punkish type.
i do not like rap or country. Period.


Uhh for religion.... I dont like overly religious people. They scare me o_O..

So i 'created' my own religion centered around my cat. It's kind of a funny thing not a serious thing.

"A religious war is like 2 people fighting over who has the strongest imaginary friend"


Woo i think thats about it about random things about me..
Depending on how many flames i get will determine how long my stay here is [Smile]

Hi Azalie, Welcome to GC. The coffee's on, help yourself, and there's probably some goodies around somewhere. Make yourself at home!

There was a great line in an episode of CSI (the original Vegas one, you know the show about geeks doing their job) Warrick and Grissom were talking about high school and Warrick asked Grissom if he was a geek, a jock or what in high school and Grissom said, "I was a ghost."

I think most of us are ghosts and the problem is we don't see the other ghosts. The ones who you say are into all the negative things are just the visible/popular ones but they are not really the majority. The ghosts are the majority, seek them out because they also think they are the only ones. If you can't join the popular crowd, try being the most popular ghost.

Hello and Welcome, I'm sure you'll find some fun here and you might even find some advice on having fun in the world closer around you.

Welcome to the forums Azalie. My first computer was an Apple IIc, but I've also been able to mess around with an Osborne, too. It was all about those 5 1/4" floppies. [Big Grin]

Fair warning: There's some people around here who might take that "LOOK INSIDE" thing literally. [Razz]

welcome Azalie, don't worry I'm a ghost in my highschool too. problem with being a ghost is that people don't notice you until they need you (i.e. today i spent my whole day basically helping people do there physics,chemistry, accounting, and math).

why didn't i think of that? what does the person religion calls "God" have which cats don't.


I agree with AgingAmigaoid about having to find the other ghosts. All my friends are what you call ghosts and we just have a blast. And once you find one or two of your fellow ghosts then slowly but surelly they will introduce you to the rest of the gohsts in the school and then you will have several dozen friends.

and again welcome to the forums.
