Hi all! I am not a newb (so much) to Love Potions but I am a newb to this forum and just wanted to say hello all. I recognize some usernames from around various other places - so yay! I try not to be a lurker so much but sometimes it happens, so forgive me if I'm not as active as others. I'm in school full-time at age 33 - just now getting my Bachelors (although...I've changed my major AGAIN - so I'll be broke for a few more years.). Anyway, hello!

 

xxoo,

 

Kristy

Welcome! What are you majoring in? And what did you switch from? Which LPs have you tried?

 

 

I'm now majoring in Biology (so I can focus on primatology). I was majoring in Human Geography, then Sociology. It's not that those majors aren't great (I love the social sciences) it's just that I'm ADD (yay for not knowing until I decided to go back to school...) and hard facts are easier for me to retain through repetition than abstract facts (theories/paradigms etc). If that makes sense. I go to UNC at Chapel Hill so it's a bit demanding.

 

The LP's I've tried, honestly haven't been many...at various points in my perfume foray I've tried different companies - some winners, some losers, at least for my skin chemistry. I stopped buying perfumes altogether for about a year because I was flat broke (although right now I'm pretty well broke too, at least until I start a study at the EPA in August and school starts in the fall). So, with that caveat, I think I've tried maybe a total of 5 or 6 LPs. :/ I've tried Scandalous when it first came out, Raven Moon, Pink, Southern Gothic, I sort of tested Halloween Moon (thought it was a sniffy soooo not really able to "test") & another one that I can't recall the name of...er. Soooo, total newb. There are many limited editions I see I've missed that sound good...

 

I'm a foody/gourmand type of person though there are certain scents (mostly BPAL related) that I like that aren't over the top foody. I HATE florals...or rather I should say, florals and I aren't friends. My grandmother wore so many commercial perfumes, mainly over-the-top florals - ugh - I cannot bring myself to wear them. Yes, I have tried them. I'm willing to try others if any other foody types can convince me. :pumpkin2:

 

Erm, anyway I've babbled on long enough. Sorry, I'm off for the summer with too much time on my hands. :/

:smilies-23596: Kristy!!! I recognize you from the BPAL forums & LJ comm. :) What's your major in, btw?

 

 

I know your username! :) Thank you! I used to be active on the LJ comms as carnaval_noir but got rid of my LJ and got facebook - unfortunately on FB when you're jonesing for perfume - you can't buy it there - so I had to get a new LJ :) I don't post often on bpal.org because, good god, I keep to myself a lot and gah, it's always been overwhelming (hell I didn't even join the forum until 2006 and I'd been into BPAL since at least 2004 - ugh). So...I figured, why not join this one - helps to push me out of my comfort zone!

 

I'm *now* a Biology major. I wish I was about 10 years younger. Heh!

Welcome & enjoy your vacay I'm jumping back into school after 12 yrs. on the summer session .... Just felt compelled to, lol. Next year I'll get to take the summer off :) I actually dropped out of school @ 16, got my G.E.D & enrolled in college @ 17. I just never went, because being a new mom(@17) was way too overwhelming for me.
