    So, when I first joined SciForums, it was 11 years ago under the name "mzboy84". Back then I was in the military and, if I remember correctly, actually joined while I was in Iraq my second deployment. Well, I ended up changing my name, per mod approval, to what you see today. Well, though not an avid poster, I was still a common sight around the forum for many years until about 2013. You guys were a part of my life all over the world, through a few of my relationships, and through many moves and transitions in my life. But it was in 2013 that I decided I needed a break from the forum. We had quite a large number of trolls, and I was nowhere near willing or ready to deal with them. Needless to say, I also had some growing up to do of my own. So off I went and focused my attention on the non-virtual world. In 2014, I was lucky enough to move to a dream location of mine of which I had striven for, for many years. I popped in to say hi once but it was only brief, and thus I continued with my focus offline. More recently, at the age of 32, I decided to give up my career in Electrical Engineering completely. I quit my job and decided to go back to school full-time (thanks to my military educational benefits).

    Well, I've decided to come back to SF, but this time with a specific focus.

    My previous interactions on SF mainly revolved around religion and politics. And while I still have a passion for both, Psychology is now my major (it was Physics until discovered just how much I despise math). So, I have intention of reinstating my presence here on the forums with the specific purpose of supplementing my formal education via partaking in discussions mainly, but not limited to, Psychology and higher education.

    Anyways, here I am. Hello to my closest friends on here: Tiassa, Dywyddyr, spidergoat, and superstring01 (my gay brother from another mother).

    I hope to see how everyone, and the forum, has been over the past many years and I wish you all well.

    Dude, welcome back.

    superstring01 has apparently acquired a life, and doesn't hang here any more.

    Thanks. And that's a damn shame about stringy. Ah well.

    You might not recognize the place. The trolls have won the battle, because the new admins care only about profits.
