Introduction thread

There's been so many new people and to tell the truth, I can't really keep up with everyone So, introduce yourself here with a few words - even if you're a regular and have been writing here for ages.

I was also thinking of making a census with all gulbistards, so include your age/location/name/whatever.

Re: Introduction thread

good idea! it's hard to remember the real names of everyone, I'm always afraid I'll mix them up!

I am cath or catherine from Luxembourg I am 22 (almost 23 but let's pretend that's not true ). I have one year to go at university to finish my masters degree. I study French literature and have also done some linguistics in the past, because I want to be a French teacher later on. I'm at uni in France, in Strasbourg, which is a beautiful city and I'll be so sad to leave next year

I've been a great tennis fan since 2001 or something, back then Ferrero was my favourite player! I was watching less tennis last year, because it kinda lacked that special player to me, since ferrero wasn't in his best shape anymore. I had been supporting him through his tough times and all, but him not being at his top level made tennis kind of uninteresting. and I got bored by the nadal/federer rivalry although I like both of them. anyway I'm back in the whole business I'd say. I've been playing some tennis myself, but I suck so badly that it gets frustrating sometimes I'm a little better at badminton, play it in competitions, but I'm still rather... not good

apart from that I like going to concerts and I love travelling and I looove languages

one word about what I don't like: meat! I've been a vegetarian fo soooo long and can't even imagine that will change in the future.


I hope that was what you expected erica

I'm kinda used to fancy younger guys, although the 3 years difference with erno is more than I'm used to

I'm not erica

I'm turning 23 in July and I don't even wanna think about it, I feel so old I feel like there are so many things I haven't done, that most people have done at my age... but people tend to think that I look younger than I am too, so I kinda like that

Re: Introduction thread

All right! I'm Leen, I'm from Belgium, Dendermonde about 30 minutes driving from Ghent.

Like almost everyone here, I'm 22 almost 23 (in september) which makes me feel old as well , I study veterinairy medicine and hope to graduate in 2 years from now and to emigrate and treat cows in the south of France .

I started watching tennis in 2001 when Kim Clijsters lost that amazing final against Capriati at RG and I spotted Ernests when he won the Mons Challenger last year.

I've never played tennis myself and I don't really intend to learn it but I love swimming, unfortunately I had to quit that because of medical reasons I volunteer as a head-animator in some kind of youth movement that organizes summer-camps (Kazou aka J&G for the Belgians around here ) , in which I'm also a member of a task-groupe (or whatever you call it) that tries to integrate solidarity and durability in the organization's policy.

I guess that's it

I hate soldiers
