Hello everyone! I've been on this site for quite a while and I have recently started being very active on it. So I figured why not check out the forums? A little about me:

My name is Dan, I'm from south FL and believe it or not, I don't speak Spanish, so I can't talk to many people since English is a second language down here now. I'm a computer engineering student, but due to available opportunities, I am heavily considering switching to a web programmer, where I'll be doing close to the same thing, but I will also get to incorporate design through the graphics of the websites which is something I have enjoyed for quite a while. I'll also be able to become a manager with about five years of experience! Other than that, I enjoy snowboarding, football, baseball, basketball, listening to good music (mostly classical recently). Lately I've gotten into reading all types of books. I'm a big dork and I go to my library's book sale which is biweekly where I get practically brand new books for $1 or 2, sometimes less! They're mostly donated books to allow the library to purchase other new books, etc. I am currently reading The Bible which is taking much longer than I had planned due to a lack of available time.

That's a lot longer than I had planned on, but now you know plenty about me! I've got a few quizzes up (one is rated 71! I'm excited about that, especially since it was my first one) so check those out please. Feel free to ask about anything, I'm looking to make some new friends on here!

Welcome Boneseh I'll just go dust off that red carpet and roll it out in a jiffy

Hope you enjoy looking around the forums (if you can drag yourself away from the quizzes) and feel free to jump on in.

Thanks for the warm welcome Copago, and I appreciate you getting the red carpet out for me. I'm sure with all the members and topics here I'll be able to find something to chat about, and if I can't I'll make one!

Welcome from the sunny dessert. I'm sure you'll enjoy it here. BTW, I don't speak Spanish either (but I can understand some of it when spoken s-l-o-w-l-y ) It's almost the first language where I live.
