Hello, To Friends New And Old!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello, everypony! 

I am not exactly new here, but I have been away long enough that I might as well be new. I'm so glad to see the community is up and running again. I am not sure how many here still remember me, and I regret that there are likely a few who would rather not. If it helps to remember me, I went by either Twilight or Eternal in the old chats.

I hope to meet everypony, whether for the first time or seventh. I am quite clumsy when it comes to keeping track of social media and online chats, but I haven't given up trying! Ideally, I'll stay in touch for most of each week, but don't worry if I accidentally respond a month or two late. School, research, friends and other things are welcome distractions from each other.

Hi Eternal! I'm trying to jog my memory if I've met you yet or not, but either way it's nice to meet you! (if you've been in the discord chat before, I'm pretty sure I may have seen you at least, as that general name you said you went by sounds familiar I think?)

I've personally changed my profile name many times back in my early self-discovery (sometimes went by either "Techoh" or "Flutters" or whatnot) and was gone on huge hiatuses... so I understand how that feels. I sometimes feel afraid to jump into chat because of slight anxiety, too. As far as school/research, what is it that you are involved with? :Squee:  I'm interested to hear! I personally am into a lot of different sciences, though technically studying computer science.

It's nice to meet you, Astral~
I don't believe we've met before, as I have yet to post in the Discord chat. I'm a bit daunted by the Discord chats and the number of members, and so I am struggling to decide when and how to finally participate, but it's great that there are so many.

For school, I am attending college in Tennessee, and will hopefully graduate next Spring and enter a graduate program. My focus is, coincidentally, Computer Science, both as my major and my field of research. I assist a professor with setting up experiments for VE research, and I help and advise the other students that work in our VR lab. Next month, a couple weeks before my Fall semester begins, I'll be flying to Vancouver, Canada to attend a graphics symposium, which has accepted a paper written by the professor and me. I'm very excited, since the paper is largely written by me, the experiment was my design, I worked hard to do nearly all of its setup, and the results of the experiment are promising. (*exhales*)

It's an interesting coincidence that we both have an interest in various sciences, though primarily Computer Science!

Oh wow, that sounds exciting! VR is a huge fascination of mine too, although my niche for now is AI. A huge goal for me is to get into the neurotech industry and help with breakthroughs in R&D. From there, probably be a part of fully immersive VR. If technology continues as it is, to the very least I'll be a part of something pretty cool. ^.^

The other huge passion of mine is theoretical science.. and space. cx

Anyway, as far as Discord, I get that. There really are so much people ^^' If you have a profile though, I'd love to be friends with you! Whether there or at least here on the forums.

I wish you the best in your studies! I'm taking a course on AI this Fall, and I imagine it will be my favorite class that semester.

I absolutely remember you! Hmm... I'm not sure how to help remind you who I was. I didn't chat as much as other ponies, but I was fairly active. I often spent my time helping and chatting with ponies in PMs.
