Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Hey everyone! I'm new here (as I guess a lot of people in this thread are!)

I'm 18 (soon to be 19, downward spiral from here) studying Graphic Design. I'm a bit of an eccentric person especially when it comes to sci-fi and my parents (especially my Dad) were massive Star Trek fans. Growing up in the 90s I guess DS9 and Voyager were always the series of choice but I really got into TOS in the last few years, and the beginning of university gave me plenty of time to ignore actual work and focus on TNG box set which I have grown to love

In non-Trek related interests I'm an Art student (yes yes they do exist and no no I don't spend my time smoking weed and discussing the ambiguity in Hirsts work) specialising in graphic design and print media.

I'm also an avid sewer, which comes in handy for making costumes! I am really into 70s music, think I was probably born in the wrong decade! I like a real mixture of glam rock, and I think I'm a bit of a punk rocker in disguise. To top it all off I'm obsessed with antiques books and also lace. I buy lots of bits of old lace.

I come from a really traditional country background here in the south of England. My Grandad is a gunsmith by trade and so I've grown up taking tallies on pheasant shoots and learning how to cook pigeon pie. I also come from a family of entrepreneurs and business owners. They've owned everything from shoe shops to groceries over the last 70 years, and we currently own an antique centre, my Mum runs her own web design company and my Mum and Nanny run a jewellery company (and I help packing orders and trying on jewellery!)

I don't have a trekkie picture of me but here is just a normal one taken a few days ago:
