I've been lurking around the site for over a week after being referred here from the Nodwick site (http://ps238principal.livejournal.com/81428.html). After coming up for an idea of an SCP of my own, plus being annoyed at various punctuation errors, grammatical screw-ups, and lapses of clinical tone, I've finally registered for the site.
In real life, I have a BS in Molecular and Cell Bio. I worked in a lab for two years doing research 'til I decided it was boring as all Hell, at which point I left to attend a Master's Entry to Nursing program, where I am now. Fun times.
Yes, I've read the How-to, the Noob Guide, and the Cliche list. I've already been in the chats and ridiculed by Kondraki. Once I'm done with my first SCP I'll post it at an open number that strikes my fancy. Have I missed anything on the noob to-do list?
