Man, I had forgotten how nervewracking it is to start a flist. Or circle, I guess. Because once you get going you can add people little by little, but since I am starting and finding new one (a more RL one, as opposed to the fannish one I will eventually import from LJ under a different name), there's this moment where you just have to jump. And deal with the fact that for a while you will have a rather small subscription list that is sort of deeply lacking in completeness. (Completeness in the mathematical sense, where if you have one element you have the element next to it to, but right now I'm not sure what the next elements are. Also, hi, this is my brain on math.)

(This is something that people who have less dodgy mental health don't worry about, isn't it?)

Hi! (I noticed you subscribed to me so I thought I'd come over and say hi.) I know exactly what you mean. :( I am feeling completely shy but it is so lonely out there with no flist and I have no idea where to start.

Clearly, I should have started with mathematicians. Because we are awesome. It's funny; on LJ, I had no mathmos on my flist and now I have *only* mathmos - okay, and one physicist. I do not see anything wrong with this picture!!!

...do we have a maths comm yet anyway?

So in conclusion, hi! (...I should not post at 2am, should I.) I was curious when I saw someone added me, and you have an icon from *that* xkcd strip so you are clearly an awesome person.

Welcome to Dreamwidth! I am sure you will find your way around in no time and love it just as must as the rest of us.

It is definitely a bit nerve wracking to start over, but so far every is really friendly and I've found a lot of people who have my same interests.

In any regard don't worry too much about it. Your circle will eventually fill itself! :)

I completely hear you. I'm having all sorts of journal-related anxiety too. my preferred username here was taken, so I feel a little wrongfooted to begin with. :) after years and years of posting friends-only entries on LJ, I decided to try posting public stuff again, which is a little nerve wracking. and I'm trying to meet cool new people (hi, by the way!).

Welcome to Dreamwidth!

Which area of maths are you studying?

Nervewracking indeed. Yes.

But hey, hi!
