Hey folks,

New here (obviously). I'm a book enthusiast, grad student, cat enthusiast, gardener of questionable talent, academic, and aspiring sociopolitical conflict mediator (it's what I study).

I love listening to old books that tell me more of where we (humans, Americans, people of my ethnicity, people not of my ancestry, etc etc) come from. Learning history helps me understand the present and often a work of fiction can teach a lot more about a time period than a lecture can.

I like drama and creativity but don't find a lot of time for it in my life. In an alternate reality, I'm a theater kid, but not in this one. So lending my voice to this project fires up my creative collaborative juices. (There's a mixed metaphor for ya.)

Anyhoo, I'm really comforted by the fact this project exists. It is a good counterbalance to my recovering misanthropy. Humans do cool edited by admin without a profit motive after all!

Looking forward to collaborating with everyone :)
Meagan aka SummerNightOwl

Welcome to LibriVox Meagan! We want you to have fun here but at first it may seem a bit confusing. Be patient; everything will clear up eventually. I've made a little video to welcome people and share a few things that I think are nice to know about us at the start of your adventure. Note, these are just my feelings. In any case ask lots of questions, we are a helpful bunch here and want VERY much for you to succeed. https://youtu.be/mwtn_2d3_qs

Just so you know, your post was flagged because of a swear word, which I have edited out of your post. We just ask that all posters on the forum use appropriate language because there are children who frequent the threads. Welcome to LibriVox, have fun! :D

Hello Meagan! We have two things in common. Both new to Librivox and both Norcal! Looking forward to supporting you and waving "hi" as we pass in the forums.
