I have been visiting this site for about 2 to 3 weeks and I have left a few posts. I'm still very new and I have a few questions for the people incharge.

1.) What school did you attend?

2.) What was your major, if it wasn't English.

3.) What are you doing now? example: jobs, family such

4.) Who thought of this wonderful site, and what made you decide to do internet?

These questions are mainly for: RonBee, Casiopea, Tdol and Red5. If you are not any of these people and would still like to throw in your information, feel free.

Thanks, Awten

I know that I partially responded earlier, but I just noticed that you are from central Illinois. I went to the big school in central Illinois. :shock:

Knowing more about me will help you sleep at night? :wink:

Okay, I'll tell you something. RonBee is not my real name. :wink:

I really am from St. Louis. I am older than you. Also, you must call me sir. (Just kidding about that last one.)

This is a wonderful website. I get to pretend that I know stuff. I get to "meet" people from all over the world. I have cyberpals from China, Japan, and the UK. I get to help people learn English.

I am trying to keep ahead of my students. I am sure they are learning faster than I am.

:wink:

Maybe it's too early in the morning or something, but I read that as:
'And have you guys ever met in prison?'

:shock:

Let's not let the secret out. Let's keep it between us.

Bradley University!

LOL! Peoria, Illinois! No, not that.

As you probably have guessed, I was part of the Frightening Illini.
