    Another Noob

    Hello everyone! I'm Tiffany and currently living all the way up in Northern Illinois, but born in Chicago. I'm engaged to a wonderful person that sadly is over 1,000 miles away in Florida (where I might be moving soon unless he gets stationed somewhere else). Recently I've taken up a new hobby of growing everything... and I really mean everything! Then I entered in the strange world of carnivorous plants a few months ago and have been hooked ever since. I got a dunecraft seed kit first (which I'm still not sure if I got anything from), and from there got a D. Adelae, S. purpurea, typical flytrap, and just today a dying ping from Lowes. I've been checking my local Lowes whenever possible for any Nepenthes and other types of sundews. Other than my plants I love animals, computers, music, and science. I also live a "dark" lifestyle, but just because I may look scary doesn't mean I am... much

    Well scottychaos, you know the people (mostly teenagers) who you would see walking around wearing all black, dark make-up, chains, too many piercings, and look like they're just looking for trouble? That's been me for years... except the trouble part. I've always tried my best to avoid that and was always a good kid for the most part.

    Well... I've actually seen quite a few well into their 40s, and even older. It could just be more common in my area though. I do admit to calming down with the looks, but that's just from growing older... and lazier
    I have more important things to do, like sitting on here all day and watching my plants catch bugs

    yeah, sorry midnight..that wasnt directed at you!

    im still bitter because Marilyn Manson totally destroyed all that was pure and real in the goth world, and replaced it with his lame corporate poser goth..

    its been 15 years, and I still cant stand him for that!

    but yeah..as you get older, you will probably find that you will always love the music, but you cant pull off the fashion anymore!
    im 39 now, was a goth teenager back in the 80's..my only bit of black clothing remaining is my "Death" t-shirt from the early 90's! (Death being Dream's sister of course)

    but I recently replaced all my original Cure and Peter Murphy cassette tapes with CD's!
    the tapes were starting to fade away after 20 years..

    Haha! I try to just ignore Manson and pay no mind to him at all.
    I've loved the music since I was young considering I grew up listening to 70s, 80s, and 90s rock and metal thanks to my mom. I would love to get into the fashion more, but sadly that takes an awful big chunk of money that I really don't have, and probably won't ever have the way the cost of living is going. That's also why I'm stuck buying half dead plants from Lowe's.
    Lucky I started really getting into the music after cassette tapes were mostly gone
    I wonder when CDs will disappear...
