Hey I’m Greg!!

3 years, 4 months ago

Hey guys,

I’ve stalked this site for a while now and thought I’d join so I could involve myself in some of the conversations instead of just reading them. I found this site about a couple weeks ago using StumbleUpon (great tool) and have visited daily ever since.

Well a little about myself,
My name is Greg. I’m 22 years old. I’m from Utah. Grew up Mormon but around the age of 17 started to question and soon after left the church and never looked back. I am extremely close with my mother and younger brother. I was very close to my father but when I was about 13 he developed an opiate addiction that totally changed our family. My passions include drawing, playing drums, bettering myself, hanging out with close friends (and meeting new ones of course). I smoke marijuana here and there and love the occasional psychedelic trip.

I recently started getting into self improvement activities because of a nasty ex-girlfriend that ripped me apart. She was an "energy vampire" and I’m so glad I got out of that situation. She taught me a lot of positive things about myself, even though she probably didn’t mean to, and for that I’m grateful. This happened about 9 months ago and before that I was slipping into intense depression and was on a couple anti-depressants. Now that is all behind me and live couldn’t be better.

I’m just finished my 3rd year of college and plan on graduating in a year and a half with a Graphic Design major. I enjoy going to school and doing what I love but can’t wait to graduate so I can start getting paid for it ;)

Anyways, I don’t expect anyone to read all of this but it felt great to type it all out seeing as I’ve never done anything like this before. I can’t wait to get to know you guys here!! If you have any questions about me or for me I would be more than happy to answer.

Warmly,
Greg

“around the age of 17 started to question and soon after left the church and never looked back.” Damn it, I wanted someone to make Mormon jokes to.

@kim

Yes it feels great!! I’ve been playing drums for about 10 years now. Wow that’s pretty crazy now that I think of it. I should be a lot better than I am for 10 years! ;P

@Tits

Feel free to make them anyhow!! I still know a lot about the church. Probably would find them amusing.

@Lucas

I know exactly what you’re saying. When you’re in a toxic relationship you become blinded to what’s really going on. My ex would always tell me how we were going to be together forever, how we would never break up, etc etc and I always just believed it. I felt stuck. But to anyone out there that feels this way, you’re not stuck! You have the freedom to get out of a bad relationship! Its not easy, I’ll tell you that. But it’s possible. I look forward to sharing wisdom and experiences with you too!

@Bryan

When I saw that on the home page I literally cried laughing! Because everyone calls me that, Good Guy Greg. I showed a couple friends those “meme’s” or whatever they are and they said they all described me to a T. So maybe I need to change my name on here to Good Guy Greg?! Hahah!

Greg, I’m really interested in learning more about the Mormon religion. I grew up in a very Mormon community and I’d like to know more about what they believe. I’ve heard so many different (and crazy) things. Would you mind educating us?
