I'm so new its scary...

Postby Sanjanaclouds » Wed Dec 03, 2003 1:12 pm

I'm Matalya, a recent grad from college just trying to get my life in order. I came across burning man accidentally a few months ago while going through some old posts on http://www.inpassing.org Since then i've become completely obsessed with recruiting friends and getting everything together, so I can go in 2004.

Even though I've read over the burning man site a few times now and done a bit of research here and there, this is my first time coming to the message board. So far it’s been really helpful, and has made me even more excited about 2004.

I was just given the wishes to make, I don't know who grants them. You can have my last one if you want, maybe you can make good use of it.

I should have said hello so very long ago. But I didn't. I've been lurking and reading the board obsessively since last June when I found out that I could FINALLY get out to the desert on my virgin trip. Yet I never said hello. hehe. how silly of me.

In any case, I am Niki, and I'm here. I'm 25, I live in Pennsylvania, and 2003 was my first year out in BRC. I was camped with the Tribe of the Chattering Monks, which was across the street from Conexus.

See ya around!

Rabbi,

My real name is Michael and I work in the telecommunications world as a SS7 Specialist for a large company based out of the South East. Burning man 04 will be my first and I learned about it from some friends that thought it might be a challenge that I'd be up for. Needless to say it sure sounded interesting. I've been labeled as a "survivalist", "gun-nut", "evil genius", and a few other tags that don't need mentioning. I'm 35 years old and have been trying to merge my current interest in engineering with my long lost love of art, into forms that follow function. I look at BM as a grand experiment and a challenge in so many ways. Each person makes the journey to BRC for different reasons, and as is so apparent, personal development and freedom are key. In my 25 year working career I've done about everything you could possibly think of for money. Although, I've always wanted to be a Rocket Scientist.. :D

I'm a transplanted redneck from the mid-west. Actually, I'm from Missouri, but don't hold it against me... I've got the two trucks and a couple of cars along with a couple of motorcycles. Some run and some don't. I'm single and currently recovering from "shitty relationship" syndrome and not looking for any relationship unless it is a meaningful overnight relationship. I have only one dog and no cats. But I like cats... they taste just like chicken.. :twisted: I like to garden and hope to bring some of my own food and my own blends of tobacco. For those that like to smoke the legal weed I hope to smoke a pipe and share some of my own home brew with you. I'm not much of a drinker but I enjoy the science of it so much I can't help myself. Peach beer or liquor anyone?

My musical tastes are leaning more toward country and 80's pop but with a little rock and roll mixed in. Rap gives me the runs, runs me right out the door, that is... I'm pretty sure that if you stop by our camp I'll be immediately recognizable in my lab coat and clipboard mumbling to myself while taking notes and measurements. I already have a solution for communicating with the world out yonder(tested in Wyoming earlier this year) but other than a cell phone I don't plan on keeping that damn thing, called the world outside, informed of my presence or activities.

I'm also a returning college student after being out of school for nearly 15 years I'm ready to go back and get that little piece of sheep skin that is absolutely critical to get a high paying job, like I have, and the prestege that goes along with it. I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up though. Well, thats about enough for now...

Mike

Hi Mike Image Glad to have you here. Hey that sounds like me posting...well except for the cars (I hope those are hybrid cars or even electric based), motorcycles, being 35 and eating cats and stuff. Sounds like you're gonna have a great time at the burn. Welcome home, sounds you're gonna fit right in, we've been missing you. Your desk is over there you're first assignment, "Do some Rocket Scientist type stuff". is in the top drawer on the left.

P.S. There just so happens to a Rocket Scientist opening in the city of Burning Man, and no previous experience required see bob in human resources (hint: take the blue pill)

LRB,

No hybrids or electrics yet but I'll get to working on that.. Everything I've got is a gas hog with the exception of the Maxima and all three bikes. 68 cuda's and BMF Dodge p/ups drink gas. For a "Rocket Scientist" project I propose turning our camp into the "Mad Scientist" Camp with all kinds of interesting wacky flight related themed projects. Eh, maybe in 05. Thanks for the welcome... :lol:

Mike

P.S I'll consider the position mentioned.. If they'll have me.

Hi burning peeps,

My name is Fritz Anthony from Long Island. I have been lurking on the Eplaya for 3-4 days now and have been having fun reading about all kinds of new things. What an enlightenment.

I plan to go to Burningman in 04 and hope to make some new friends before I get there.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Hello ^_^

Well, my name is Janna and I am a newbie. At the moment, I'm very much hoping to make it to BM '04 but I might not be able to because of school. But, I've got my fingers crossed. I'm a bit of a comicbook geek but I'm glad because I stumbled upon Burning Man through a comicbook and it really sparked my curiosity so I did a bit of superficial reseach at first but the more I go through the image galleries the more I feel a pull to go so I'm really hoping I'll be able to make it out. It'll be my first burn and I'm really excited, just thinking about it inspires me to no end.

Umm...on top of that, I'm live in Ottawa, Ontario (the capital of Canada) start attending the University of Ottawa on January 5th in Classical studies (I get to learn latin! *happy dance*). I love animals and have a particular affinity for large cats and german sheaperds (I have two of them)
