Gwenith - my two cents for invigorating the board - FWIW.
A lot of people lurk, and that's fine, but they shouldn't gripe when they feel the board is slow if all they've done is sit back, read, and get annoyed when they feel they haven't been sufficiently entertained by those who do post. Bulletin boards are not a spectator sport - somebody's gotta be out on the field playing. Everyone has something of worth to say. To those who usually just read, I say: if you aren't comfortable starting a topic, start by responding to one. And that's all I'm gonna say about that
As far as introducing myself: Hi, I'm Marcey. I'm working a quiet little job in office nursing, with no desire to do anything at this point but continue that job. While I love nursing and being a nurse, work is not an end in itself - it's a means to fund the fun things I enjoy. My side hobbies are working out, dancing, spending time with hubby in the above endeavors, reading, surfing and seeing our extended families as much as possible.
I've been playing in the internet since 89 or so, and I don't bite. I love forums like this and have been absolutely amazed at the leaps and bounds in progress places like this have made since the "old days." But regardless of the bells and whistles inherent in the site, it's the people that make or break it. I'm proud to be a member here and recommend this place often as the friendliest, most knowledgable nursing site I know of.
