Hi Hi Long Islander here!

Hey everyone!

Just wanted to introduce myself and say hello! (hello... echoo... echoo... echoo...)

Um, so I'm from Long Island (because I keep getting corrected when I say I'm from Queens and am not familiar with LI), I've been practicing with Hagihara-Shihan and Adam Pilipshen Sensei in Bay Shore for about two years now. Not much else except I enjoy Aikido and meeting new people and I love my dojo-family.

Hope everyone's year has been good so far--it has been for us!

I like drawing, photography, writing, and fluffy animals. I also enjoy cooking so I ply our members with my concoctions as often as I can. Haven't killed anyone yet... so I guess I'm okay...

Hope to one day meet everyone! =)

Re: Hi Hi Long Islander here!

Hi everyone! Thanks for the welcomes!

Ohhh Mr. Popkin, that's actually somewhat close to where I live, maybe I'll drop by one of these days!

OMG NICK--I didn't know you were on here! *waves wildly*

I'm not brave or smart or particularly generous, but I'll take my values and live by them--and that is my standard measurement of strength.
