Hello everybody!
Well, I guess it's my turn to introduce myself. I tried to be original, but going through the posts, I see that everything has been done, so here goes in my boring teacher voice.
My name is Lulubell, I am currently a High School in an English-speaking school in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. I grew up in France in a very international home, so I can speak English and French fluently (with little to no accent) and German pretty decently (albeit with a strong French accent). I am also a beginner in Spanish and Creole, but I'll keep that info to myself :D
I am in the middle of an identity crisis and am considering a radical change in my career path (yes, I'm only 30 and I'm going through a mid-life crisis :roll: ) where I'm considering going back into music and the performing arts, which was my main focus until the end of High School. And since reading is another one of my passions, I decided that it's only logical to volunteer here!

So without further ado, I'll stop babbling and start recording! If I understand correctly, I need to start with a 1-minute test followed by a poem, right?

Heh, everything had been done by the time I arrived. :D But the welcome's no less sincere -- I'm glad you found us, and hope you have fun here, Lulubell!

1 min test, definitely, because it's awful to record a whole section and then find the mic was off/settings were wrong/etc. Don't ask me how I know. :( :? ;)

And then, poems are good, especially the Weekly Poem, because there's no pressure whatsoever, it gets catalogued very quickly, and it's pretty interesting to listen to so many different ways to read the same thing. But whatever interests you, really. :thumbs:
There's honestly no such thing as a stupid question -- but I'm afraid I can't rule out giving a stupid answer : : To Posterity and Beyond!

We're lucky to have a polyglot like yourself here. I'm happy you decided to join, Lulubell. I'm sure that by doing what interests you, you'll find your way out of an identity crisis quite alright. :thumbs:
