Thank you so much. I am still trying to learn my way around this website. Yes, I do not have many friends that know I am an Atheist. Everyone around here assumes that you are a christina. Are you on facebook?
Well most of the connection with other atheists takes place online. There is a pretty active meetup group for Nashville Atheists and when I am able to be in town more often, it'll be nice to socialize more in person. Sadly, the current governor's race has quite a few popular crazies running that want to do nothing but legislate religion into our lives more and more. Needless to say, that scares the living shit out of me. :)
Oh! Funny you should mention gelato. My roommate from undergrad (went to school in Lynchburg, VA) is originally from southern CA. She had apparently visited Annapolis in high school and one of the things she remembered was the gelato from Aromi D'Italia in downtown. I brought her up one Fall Break and we had to get some of course!
Oh, I've lived in Anne Arundel County my entire life, in Annapolis since I was 6. I don't get out much when I'm not working at the mall (trying to find a f/t job around here isn't easy). My friends and I like going downtown (it is a drinking town with sailing problem!) for food and drinks (Reynold's Tavern has yummy tea and pastries; Joss's on Main St. has good sushi/japanese cuisine). RennFest is coming up (in nearby Crownsville) in August, being a nerd I'll be spending a good bit of time there! You should check it out.
I'm a bookworm so I spend some time reading, or hanging out with Torpedo, my family's shar-pei (he knows he's cute). I also sing in the AACC community concert choir.
I love living here and I hope you and Morgan like it. There's plenty to do (depending on what you like to do), though you might have to do some looking (the bookstores have local interest sections). And of course we're within driving distance of Baltimore, D.C., the Eastern Shore, etc.
Hey Cara! I'm new here and I'm trying to meet new likeminded people. Coming from a pretty conservative area, I really don't know any other atheists personally, so I'd appreciate your friendship! :) Thanks for the add.
Lovely Cara¡ You're Yes.
The Plain Truth is that religion all religion are for criminals and slavers idiots. Victor Hugo said " Sillies will see God", and criminals will do us to receive communion with mill's wheels.
I belive in You. Ibelieve in Wo/Man.
I'm a San Diego fan, but most of So Cal isn't for me. Too much time sitting in cars for no reason. Megalopolis if you will. WA is too gray for my wife. I have a business that I can't walk away from, so my current hope is to develop a service that will free me from a location. I have a solid idea, so the question is, cheap dev with some friends, or expensive with angel money? When I can make it work N Carolina might be in the works. Wife is European, closer to home for her, still a coast with beaches.
