Hi, I'm Old (1 Viewer)

This place has gotten a bit dusty since I was last here. I'm surprised I still have an account and @Cran didn't wipe me off the face of the Earth after trying to contest an auto-debit from my Paypal because I didn't know where it came from until I saw his real name. 😂

Well, it has been a long time, I'm old and different. If you knew me before, I'm sorry. If I stick around and post and new people see it, I'm sorry for that too in advance.

Hey Lew, great to see you!

What are your writing interests now - poetry or prose? What's happening in RL since you were last here?

Why not enter July's poetry and/or LM challenge for starters :)

Well I kind of have 2 degrees now, but not much to show for it. The only things I've written lately are research papers and unfunny tweets in an attempt to be relevant to a bunch of strangers. Maybe I'll expand my reach of trying too hard to make people like me. I haven't written a poem is so long I can't even spell the word rhyme without spellcheck, let alone do it.

Well done, you! What subjects?

My best advice, just be yourself and don't try too hard to make people like you. You are the reason I survived and I'm still here. WF has changed a lot since you were last here, so let's wipe the slate clean and start again :)

Criminal Justice and Criminology. I do have a project I am trying to work on about a couple of suspected serial killers I worked with when I was a correctional officer. I also worked with one of their victims that happened to be the subject of a television show here in the U.S. called Unsolved Mysteries. The issues I am trying to find out have to do with whether or not I can write about the crime without getting anyone's permission since I worked with everyone involved.

You see how crafty we were in the planning of our wall of defense, eh? A three-pronged attack...

Heylo, Lewdog! Nice to see you again. :) That makes two WF dogs that I can think of, Lewdog and Sigmadog. So you'll have company.

Congrats on the degrees, great job!
