Hallo, New York! Please may I come in?
I'm moving to NYC in a couple of months and just googled "nerds nyc" on a whim and I'm so glad I did. I seem to be a bit prone to whims actually, I'm moving to this giant city with no job, no friends and no place to live, for no particular reason other than I figured if I'm going to leave my comfortable little life in my parents' house in the middle of the woods I may as well have an adventure while I'm at it. So I'm coming to find out if NYC really is the greatest city in the world. I'm really excited!
I'd love to get to know people here and hopefully come to some get-togethers when I move. I'm not much of a gamer but that's more due to a lack of opportunity than a lack of interest. I played in one D&D campaign when I was sixteen or seventeen (more than a decade ago) but I can't even remember what edition it was, all I know is that it was a lot of fun. I do like board games, some video games (Final Fantasy, Shadow of the Colossus), and a number of sci-fi shows (I insist that if shows like Star Trek and Doctor Who can make great comebacks in the forms of TNG and New Who, so too will Firefly some day). I also like anime (guess my favorite) and old fantasy movies like Labyrinth and Ladyhawke.
I'm more of a book nerd than anything else though. I love fantasy novels and am about to start on book four of A Song of Ice and Fire. I've been writing fantasy stories since before I could read (figure that one out) and one of these days I may even finish one. I also like philosophy and if I could only bring one book to a desert island my Portable Enlightenment Reader would get very serious consideration.
I guess that's all for now, so it's back to exploring the forums! I look forward to chatting with everybody!
