It's hard to have an original title

#1 Postby Electrocution » Wed Jan 03, 2007 9:36 pm

Hi, my name's Derek, I'm 17, live in State College, Pennsylvania, USA (Penn State anyone?). I'm a vegan obviously...I like to skate and am a big music geek, so I am down to talk about any of the above 8)

Looks like a friendly community here, so I'm looking forward to getting plenty of help in my effort for a healthier lifestyle.

I noticed a lot of Pennsylvanians while I was browsing the forums...

and there is a possibility I will be going to school in Pittsburgh next year, so I might be getting even closer to you, michael.

Hey, how about we use his house as our halfway point and have another meet up, that way it's not 6 horrible hours on each of us? ;)

the university brings a decent variety of people and educational resources, as well as speakers and other such events. we get some of the more popular bands coming through, but other than that, the area is pretty lacking in terms of live music (something i am deeply upset about...). overall i feel that it lacks...culture, which is why i'm looking to go to school in a city, although i will miss being away from nature :(

thanks for all of the welcomes.
