Hi.

I've just joined this forum and wanted to say Hi to you all :D .

I am fortunate to be able to work part time from home, (graphic design & writing) so I hide out in the sanctuary and quietude of my office, getting dragged out for walkies twice a day by my two boisterous Doodles :mrgreen: They keep me - in a small way - socially active, and in a large way, relatively fit and reasonably sane. Without them, I would permanently hide from the world.

Two sessions of dog-walking social interaction are more than enough for me - although I still find myself hiding from people rather than embracing them as my (too friendly) dogs 'force' me to 'play nice' with people :oops: .

I am sure I will enjoy my time here :D

jaded but plodding on regardless...

Welcome to Wrong Planet from a fellow recluse! (well, I would be if the world would let me!) There are many other artists, designers, and writers here too, so I'm sure you'll feel right at home!

Hi and welcome. And "Woof, woof bark woof!" to the dogs. They will know what I mean!

Hello,

I'm new to the Wrong Planet too. I made a reply on a job forum earlier. I didn't know I was autistic until I was 18. I love animation and film, hope to work at Dreamworks or Disney someday. Or work at a studio abroad.

That would be amazing to do. Nice to meet you all.

Thanks for the warm welcome, it's much appreciated :D and welcome too, to Animatrice2020.

Ha, yes, it's so blooming hard to be a recluse these days, especially with the world's two friendliest doodles welcoming everyone and everything in sight. Secretly, I am glad - as they keep me 'in touch' and are great topics of conversation meaning I have to say or think too much :D . Just smile and nod.....

Oh yes, they knew what the woof, woof bark woof meant - thank you, and they say woof back.

Plodding on regardless, as always.
