    Bumping this up for “new newbies” :wink:

    Good evening! In effort to continue getting to know each other, I thought it would be good if we compiled our personal info (whatever you’re willing to share) onto one thread.

    what is your least favorite aspect of your current occupation?

    favorite activity with your family?
