So the first of many-Intro

I've been around a bit, I suppose.

To Denver and back; Florida, Arkansas, Mainly for family visits growing up)Indiana (Where I am now) and through several states while on family vacations.

I've lost a lot, friends, my beloved guide dog, some other things, but I've gaind so much. Life lessons that some gain in their twenties, I gained im my thirties.

I still feel like I'm behind my peers on so much. I see people with lives, families, kids, and I wonder when it will be my turn; when will I have the one(s) ment for me.

I am still me, b ut more now. I am exploring things I never thought possible, and am still learning things about myself I never thought possible.

Including the fact that intros of the traditional sort are way too boring for me. LOL

This is my introduction for therealljidol It is lnontraditional. Just as I am.

Welcome back .... That first step is always well intimidating for so many reasons ... but hey you did it and that itself is well reason to celebrate.
It is. :) Thanks.
'I still feel like I'm behind my peers on so much. I see people with lives, families, kids, and I wonder when it will be my turn; when will I have the one(s) ment for me.' I have been there and always dreaded the place. Hope you have a good time here. Cheers !
I'll try to. :) I've actually missed being here. I'd thought about poking my head in the green room, but there isn't much time these days. :)
I always find it hard to write an intro as well. Hope you enjoy being here again!
I just don't like the biographical ones, you know. It was all well and good for the first couple seasons, but now it's like. Meh...boring. LOL

Thanks.

I feel the same way even with being married - when will I have a better job? when will we have kids? when will we be able to afford to buy a home?
I'm glad I'm not alone, but one of those is a partner. I see friends of mind with them, and I'm trying not to be jealous. I'm 36 and want to carry at least one child, and the older I get, the less likely it seems.

Good start! I gave up "Keeping up with the Joneses" several years ago.... One of my better decisions!
Ha, It's less keeping up with the joneses and more wanting kids, really, though some of it, admittedly is keeping up. I want kids, though, and the older I get the more unlikely it seems that I will carry my own, which I would like to do.

There are soooo many children out there that need good homes. If you don't have bio children, consider adoption. :)
Non-traditional can be fun, especially in writing. I'm glad you will be writing for Idol again.
Thinking outside the box isx exciting. I'm glad to be back. I didn't realize how much I've missed this until I realized I'd be doing it again. :)

I am exploring things I never thought possible, and am still learning things about myself I never thought possible.
This may seem like it's happening later for you than for most people, but it IS happening and it's important. You're just doing it your own way. :)
It does, and part of it is having a disability and being shelted probably a bit more than I should've been, but there we are.

I trie not to think about some of it much, because yes, you are right, but when I see the families around me and I hear the kid stories, it brings it back some days.

-P~
Looking forward to hearing more about YOU this season!
I feel like I'm behind my peers, too. At 32, I'm still living with my mother. Though it's because she's struggling financially, I'm struggling financially, and we're renting out rooms in our house to non-family members. We hardly ever see each other, but it's still that "I'm 32 and still live with my mother..." part that gets me. Even when I do get more financially secure (and I will, dagnabbit!), I have a feeling I'll still live with her because she'll have nowhere else to go.

Nice to "meet" you.
But don't you know? Unconventional is the norm here!

Welcome, welcome! Best of luck!
