Mainer in Scotland
« on: January 09, 2020, 11:16:48 AM »
Hey everyone,

Just introducing myself. A Scottish friend (with an American wife) recommended the forum, and here I am!

I'm from Maine, have lived in the the midatlantic the past six years (Philly, Camden, and NJ) until I moved to Edinburgh in August!

I'm here working for a church. I am thinking about going to seminary, but wanted some training here first, so I am apprenticing with a church in Dundee, which started this week! (Four months late because of Scottish gov issues)

 I also have a lovely Scottish gal pal whom I met in the states. She lives in Edinburgh. I think I will be visiting the visa board shortly ;).

Anyway, that's me. Looking forward to getting to know some of you and contributing. my first four months were...rough! But I think I am on the other side of that now, and I am already better for the experience!

Cheers!

Aw man, I was trying to get away from you Massholes... ;) Just kidding. Not sure if you're a Patriots fan, but sad to see them on the decline. Looks like the dynasty is ending...

Thanks for the welcome all :)
