NEW from VIRGINIA!

Postby xsnjones » Fri Jan 06, 2017 12:10 pm

I'm new to Burning Man. I have been wanting to come for years!! Me, my fiance, and friends are attending this year (at least we hope to snag some tickets). I have so so many questions!!! Apart from reading everything linked on burningman.org, I have questions of my own! Who wants to help a virgin burner out?!?

Welcome! Please tell us a little about yourself, interests passions, quirks, why Burning Man appeals to you and your cadre. Shoe size. You're a virgin in a sea of burgins, let us get to know you!

You'll find a wealth of information in the Preparation forums, which is a great place to ask specific questions. The Tickets forum has some good general must read information. Read Stories and Philosophy, head on down to Open Discussion and say hi in The Bar, or play around in some of the fun threads.

Sell us your sooooooouuuuul ..... no, wait, that was 1996. No deposit required.

I'm turning 25 monday!! I have been into art my whole life. Down to drawing, creating, building, projects. I love it all! Although I am born and raised here in southern Va, my heart belongs in San Francisco, along with my fiancee. (he's born and raised in SF). I truly discovered more about myself since frequently traveling to and from there and doing other things in the world. I'm such a fun, openminded, and free spirited person who truly has very few limits within my moral. The culture and principles of burning man resonates with my soul and I know I was born to come to the Playa! I love who I am, and I want to give back to my world and people who are like me. Become one with such an explosive, growing, dynamic, beautiful culture like BM. I am a cosmetologist, and fantastic with my craft. I am getting some people together so they too can become or release who they need to be! I have so many ideas and ways to contribute! I already have a theme and lists of things I would like to personally hand make myself to hand out. I could spend all day thinking about this. But that's the beauty of it right?! I haven't made it to the Playa yet, but I already have so much love for the BRC community.

When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.
