I'm new here too! I've been doing my own challenges (fitness, internal energy work, chronic pain mgmt, grief/loss of my bff) without posting here. 

 

I would love to make friends! I'm also here for that, but I feel like saying so makes it awkward. For now, hi!

Welcome to the rebellion, and may I say, please don't try to face these challenges alone, burdens are easier when shared.

That's really nice of you to say. But in my life that's not been possible. I've pretty much had to face challenges alone. Even if there are people online, do you still feel alone? It's complex for me. Like on the one hand I have had one really awesome online friend for years and no real life friends, and still I hardly ever felt lonely. We had each other's backs. Felt supported. On the other hand strangers are sometimes kind and well help each other out. So even without friends it's possible you can get help in times of need. But I need relationships, they don't all have to be deep, but at least where it's tight, like a family. (I don't have family.) And on the other other hand, I'm trying to create a family for people like me who have no one. So putting all that to one side... 

 

Yes! Let's do this. Together. Burdens are easier shared, also more fun.

Hi All!

 

Back again, but doing my best to stick it out long-term this time.

 

Nerd interests are books (especially sci-fi, fantasy, and horror), comics (relatively new to these - last 2 years), and board games. I have young nerds (elementary/middle school aged) who also enjoy these things.

 

Fitness interest are bodyweight training and general mobility. A dream goal would be to get into gymnastics and/or parkour down the line.

 

Glad to be here.

Although I lurked around NF several years ago, I never attempted a 5 week challenge (that I can think of). I've recently started trying to get a kickstart on getting healthy again. So, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to re-engage in the Rebellion!

Welcome back!

Hi all, I just joined the rebellion and I can see from these threads that everyone is lovely! I'm so excited to have people I can geek out with. 

 

I love sci fi and fantasy books, films, shows and gaming. I love anything with a good story. 

 

I'm still putting together my goal for this challenge, and I'll keep it simple. It'll be nice to join some groups. 

 

Big loves!

Hey!

 

I'm excited to connect with you all.  My interests right now lie in Sci-fi books like Ender's Game and The First Sister. I'm also a huge fan of mystery, the paranormal, and superstition in media like Agatha Christie, This Paranormal Life, The Twilight Zone, and Twin Peaks. 

 

Good luck to everyone with their challenges this month!

Joined this forum in 2013 and then I disappeared.  Life. 🤷‍♀️

Spent some time at SparkPeople until they shut down.  Finally remembered I had an account here, so I'm back.

So far, I'm loving the changes here.  Journey is so much fun!

Looking forward to my very first challenge, even though I've joined the party a few days late.
