Well, I'm Old.... Female.... And I love adoptables
I live in Iowa, but I'm from Florida/Michigan. I'm married and have been for 26 years this year. I have 4 Children. 26 Boy, 22 Girl, 15 Boy, 15 Boy. Trust me when I tell you.... Twins are very difficult in the teenage years.
I was in the Navy for 17 Years, I am a Surgical tech and have been for 23 years. I got my training from the Military. I've deployed Twice to Iraq. We do not talk about that time. I now work in a hospital on the Labor and Delivery floor doing C'Sections. I only work 3 days a week but I rotate back and forth between days and nights.
I'm a gamer. Its an addiction. I just deleted Ark off the Xbox today so my full time will be on PonyIsland with my sister. I want to be more involved.
I'm easy going, I love to chat and debate. I appreciate other peoples opinions even when they are different than mine. Lets face it, Life would be boring if we all thought alike. AND I just love to know why everyone believes what they do. Do your research people.
One of my childhood friends just died yesterday. I'm sad. But he lived life the way he wanted so life is to be celebrated.
When I get mad, I get over it. Lifes too short to stay angry or hold a grudge. Chat with me, I don't bite.
Admit it ... you just don't bite HARD lol And not all the time.
So, I'm not the only senior here! Good to know. Married 31 years. My three are 28 boy, 25 girl, and 23 girl. The youngest has given us two granddaughters, and, yes, they ARE grand!
I became part of the PI community when my two girls were playing as early- to mid-teens. I had to do the parental thing and "check it out." Been here ever since, unlike them, although they do come and go as RL allows.
I was a stay-home/homeschool mom. When the youngest moved out I went on the road with hubby who by then was working contract work in the energy industry (mostly petroleum, but not exclusively), commissioning if that means anything to you (it doesn't to most).
Anyway... It is so good to get to know you a bit better!

Welcome! Yes, we're all... sorta old... here XD
I'm the token Canadian, which I like to think is why we embrace that "be excellent to each other" motto, and - hopefully! - you'll find it a nice place to hang out with lots of nice people
Hmm, about me... I'm a teleprompter by trade and work in the film industry here in Toronto. Married 8 years (though we have been together for 20) we have a seven-year-old girl who gets referred to here most often as the mini-whims. I consider myself very lucky because my husband LOVES cooking so "what's for dinner" is the one thing I never have to worry about; I'm spoiled!
I'm also a freelance artist and work in a variety of different media, though most of my subjects tend to be horse or fantasy-related.
Sometimes I wonder if I did this "growing up" thing properly, because I still feel like a kid at heart ... I love animals of all types (I don't draw humans very well >.>), adore world mythology, and gravitate to science fiction & fantasy because I find them fascinating dissections of the human condition and psyche. I wish I had more time to watch more movies, but am not sure what is this "spare time" everyone keeps talking about XD I'm an avid writer (participating in Camp NaNoWriMo next month ), a nerd about real horse genetics, a fountain of useless facts and half-related anecdotes, and if there's one thing that would be written on my grave stone it would be, "she was not brief"... All said... I'm actually a shy person... really! I just get really excited about things and tend to ramble, and can't resist a good intellectual sparing, either XD
As for Kalidore... it's been a healthy obsession these last ten years The adoptable began at the prompting of a good friend (who's no longer on PI but still actively haunts us through her RP character Lilaini!) It has been a fantastic creative outlet, constantly building and expanding, and I'm always excited to share new ideas and new artwork with the community
My deep, dark secret... I can't spell >.> Dyslexic, here. So apologies in advance if you ever catch me on a computer without a spell-check!
ETA: except when I spell things the Canadian way XD Those ou's and re's are intentional XD
*Waves* Well I'm not as young as some PI....but I think I'm one of the younger Kalidore people
I'm in the northeast, but originally from out West. I came out here for school and stayed for work, I work in a hospital doing genetic research. We've got a good number of hospital people here! I've got two furbabies and spend my free time riding and hanging out with PI people.
I'm always happy to chat and pretty active around PI, the forum, and our discord channel when life is not eating me alive I'm also an insane morning person so I don't respond past 8 PM to things but 6 AM responses are the norm for me
I've loved Kalidore from the time I started PI (around 10 years ago) and after a hiatus is college, returned to PI as an adult and got more involved. I'm just coming off a couple of insane months during which I moved and interviewed for grad school basically at the same time (do not recommend) so I am slowly becoming a normal person again.
