Morning! May I have your attention for a greeting please?

Post by Shieldel on Fri Oct 21, 2011 12:37 pm

Good morning my fellow Lego enthusiasts! I will just get straight to the point as I'm that kindof a guy! Smile

I am 14 and live in the good'ol Sin City, A.K.A., Las Vegas, Nevada. I have been playing with these addicting bricks since I was maybe four or five years old. I started on LEGO young, haha. I have registered on this board to learn about customization and get a basic understanding of different methods, considering all I know is that it is possible to decal and customize a figure! Just knowing that it's possible! Hehehe…

So I am here to learn and experiment and get feedback from the fine community you guys have here on this board. One thing you should know about me is I am very respectful and try not to have offend anyone or make a scene. I give credit where credit is due, and in the specific case of "Lenginnering" (Lego and Engineering, I engineer creations with Legos. See what I did there? Hehe! Anyways...) praise someone if I think they did a good job and explain how it caught my eye and what I like about it, and if I didn't I let them down gently and explain what was the (or a few things) that turned me off, what was the turn off(s) for me and what they can do to make their MOCs nice and cool to catch my eye and keep my eyes there! Hehe. I'm a very outgoing and cheerful person (I have used hehe twice and haha twice as well so far, yes I seriously went back and counted! ^_^) but I can be serious when a straight face and a...oh darnit I don't know...when a military manner drained of emotion is needed. Oh and speaking of the military....I happen to volunteer in the Civil Air Patrol Cadet Program. I won't go off-topic too much here...CAP is pretty much the Auxillary to the USAF. Cadets are volunteer cadets even though CAP is a congressionally (please tell me if that's not a word or incorrect spelling...trying not to get Rook's "to keep an eye on list" due to breaking the strict rules here!) approved paramilitary organization we get to pick and choose what we participate in. When we are volunteering and on duty, we are considered active duty USAF reservists -ONLY- when in a Civil Air Patrol uniform. (BDUs, United States Air Force Dress Blues, or a plain black t-shirt or CAP shirt with jeans and a belt) CAP Cadets help in Search and Rescue and many more activities I won't go into as I believe I've gone on enough about the Cadet Program. I try not to get off-topic but I get gushy when it comes to CAP, I let my pride get to me and sometimes get "too proud" to be in the program.
Well I think I said enough about Legos and practically the only activity I get to participate in as I'm homeschooled and rarely get out making me socially awkward as I do my social life over the Internet pretty much. -__- Ok I'm rambling now and have seriously got to stop...my apologies! Oh I have a camera and will be taking pictures of what I have made this week, I do not have a flickr but I have a MOC page on mocpages.com. I'll link my page once I actually have photos up. Well...I look forward to spending time with all of you and hopefully getting feedback and learning what I can do to improve once I get pictures taken! For now...I go back to lurking, reading, and asking to learn! Thank you Rook for my activation, I honestly usually speak like I did in my introductory paragraph hehe!

tl;dr -JP

I honestly do NOT have a flickr page but am intending on changing that...I heard with flickr you have to have a Yahoo address as it's Yahoo exclusive.

And @ the wonderful Admin. Wink My apologies for making it so long...I really don't know why I always have to make intros such a freaking wall...I've done it on many other boards when introducing myself

Thank you Typhoon, and thanks for taking the time to read all of it Wicked. -__- Glad to see I fit in well already. ^_^ Happy to be here, it's great to be here in such a peaceful learning environment. I will probably have pictures taken Sunday, tomorrow I'll be busy watching the Blizzcon DirecTV Live Broadcast (I play WoW AND Starcraft.)

Anyway, welcome! You don't need a Yahoo for Flickr. You can use Facebook and Google Mail.

Well I'm still a "no name" just a browser. But welcome? I honestly think you would be a english major in college though. Smile

Anyways, people hear are very creative and very experimental with their Lego parts (Ex: Tac [if you get to meet him] is awesome with his bley bricks, and Rook is good at o' jokes and ships)

Hope you have a good time bro'! Wow this thing looks

@ Chapstick, seen you around in posts while lurking, hehe, and on my grammar...yes I use spellcheck and usually type correct grammar in the first place. Tac I've seen while lurking/reading posts and Rook...well of course I've seen him while lurking as well! Hehe

And @ Rubik, Yeah...I typed fast, had to correct my typing a few times. Hehe! ^_^

Ok...I'm back! I had a real life um... how do I want to put this... real life hit me and I was away for a while. School and CAP had me busy but I finally got things under control. Sooo....I will be as active as possible! Smile But if I go dormant again, it's my life! Hehe, I want on vacation last week and the week before that I was swamped volunteering as a CAP Cadet working alongside Nellis AFB staff and participating in Search and Rescue training.
