Hi, well I guess where to start, my names Tom, and I'm not actually from Canberra but not that far from it =]
I must say I'm jealous of the social gatherings and groups and such that seems to exist in Canberra! That would be great where I live, except for the fact that no ones gay here of course haha. Oh well, can't help that now can we.
Just finished exams...and am pumped for 2 weeks of holidays. In which I will do as little as possible of course =]
Hey Tom! Welcome, Tom! Are you in a rural NSW town or something, are you?
You SHOULD be jealous of our social gatherings
. They're pretty darn good.
Yay for finished exams! And extra yay for 2 weeks holiday! ...which I'm totally on as of next week, also. And yes, the whole do as little as possible act
This forum is quite cool. I'm new to canberra (have come up to start work), what's a good way for introverted geeky types to meet people in around here?
Ohh, and "Hi, my name is kwax", hehe.
ANNNND, Hi Kwax!/ChuckyCheese! Welcome to Qnetttttttttttt...!! Need I guess, Public Service? Come on, who CHOOSES to come up to Canberra?
As for introverted geeky types, and providing you are between the ages of 12 and 25 (maybe 26?), I would most definitely recommend coming along to Bit Bent.
Bit Bent is a 'youth support group' for GLBTQ people, ages 12 - 25. There are TWO groups.
MONDAY - Belconnen Youth Centre - 6pm - 8pm. Ages, so far, include 15 - 25 year olds, about 20+ people or so
THURSDAY - Woden Youth Centre - 5m - 6.30pm. Similar range of ages, and more like 10+ people.
Plenty of geeky types at both. Especially comic geeky!
Hope that all sounds helpful. ALL of it.
