All right, let's see here… Native Puerto Rican, living in Oregon, 24 years old. I've studied and practiced for a short time as a surgical tech, have a bachelors in nursing and nagging dreams of becoming a researcher in some kind of lab, but I've been forced to work as a banquet server by money woes. Can't practice without a license, can't get a license without money :/
In any case, I've been an RPer for a few years now, although I haven't written in a while. Found this site by accident and fell in love with its odd collection of horrific, mysterious and outright unbelievable objects. I'm also a fan of The Lost Room which has a similar premise, and the cold, clinical approach in the articles about these objects just feels right to my always curious medical mind.
Alas, I must admit that I am not quite up to the challenge of creating an SCP quite yet. My writing still needs a bit of polish, there's much more lurking and reading to be done in the site yet and I'd really rather not intrude on this masterpiece until I know I have something worthy of showcasing. And I'll probably fall flat on my first try, but who cares? That's how you learn!
In any case, I hope to be able to learn and grow from all those here before me, and hopefully I'll be strong enough to incorporate any constructive criticism thrown my way without taking it personally. Thanks for having me!
