Hello, everybody. I’m new. And pretty glad to be here. I stumbled across RB totally randomly, but it’s nice to see something so beauty- (and therefore life-)affirming.

For my part, I’m a writer, mostly of poetry. Everbody should click through to my stuff and leave comments rife with scathing criticism. (RB is not ideal for text formatting, as I’m sure other writers have discovered, so I beg leniency on that front.)

I’m just shy of 24 at the moment. I was born in the USSR but now live in California. I hold a bachelor’s degree in philosophy. Killing some time before graduate school. Studying some Japanese to add to my list of broken languages (which currently includes Hebrew, Arabic, and German).

That’s about it, for now. It looks to me like RB is a really cool community and I look forward to participating in it.

Douzo yoroshiku onegaishimasu.
