    I'm new here and figured I would introduce myself. I'm AJ. I'm 24 and work in GIS technology, gay and I'm a pretty solitary person. I joined hoping to have a place to talk a bit more with likeminded people. I love Pokemon, as my username would suggest, also a huge hockey fan, video games, enjoy reading, etc. It's hard for me to make friends, yet alone meet new people, so hey. Hope I can get past some of my anxiety and post more. Thanks everyone, hope you all have a good weekend and Halloween!

    Well, hello and welcome to you. As you can see—we are all happy to meet you.
    I know nothing about Pokémon but my son is very into Magic the Gathering—I can talk with you about that.
    Can you explain GIS? Do you enjoy it?
    Take the time to get familiar with the site and people. There is no rush. This is a safe place to meet people and develop friendships.

    That's always a difficult question for me, I try to keep an open mind and I've enjoyed music from all different genres. Lately I've really been into King Crimson, Mr. Bungle, and Pixies. There's a lot of underrated, underground stuff I like to listen to, sometimes things come up in youtube recommendations.

    Thanks :slight_smile:
    GIS is shorthand for Geographical Information Systems. Essentially software is used to in correlation with raw data provided through surveys or topographic information. You can input this data and overlay it to a map. Think Google Maps or GPS as one example. I work in higher ed/research doing GIS/mapping for museum collections. I really enjoy it, and I kind of fell into this career path during college. I honestly can't think of anything else I would rather work at, and I love the environment I work in. It can be kind of dull sometimes but I think any job with a lot of repetition would feel that way eventually.

    Thank you, it seems very nice so far, it takes me a while to warm up to a place and open up more

    Hi Jakebusman, thanks for the welcome on my profile! I can’t profile post yet, so I thought I would say hi here. I’m a huge Pokémon fan too! I was excited to see your Espeon pic because that generation is awesome. Umbreon is my favorite. Pokémon Black was my favorite game, for sure! What’s your favorite Pokémon game?
