I have never met them. Any of them. Some of them have met each other, are even in relationships! But I have the unfortunate luck to live in Oregon, which I rather like, but that's far away from the East Coast. I'm talking, of course, about internet friends. I just joined this site, so unfortunately I'm not speaking of them. More my deviantART friends, people who are similar to me in many ways (art, age, experience, gender issues). I wasn't serious when I was faux-complaining about being so far away, and that I should move over there. It was a joke when I said we should all move to Ireland, a place we all like. But the more each of us think about it, the more we like the idea. We are all realists, or pessimists, we know that things suck and we'd probably all be different than we expect, but we do all have a lot in common, and we chose each other, which is more than I can say about all the roommates I've had in college. What am I talking about? All of us going to Ireland and living together in a big house! We'd have a nacho machine and share our art supplies and have movie nights and have animals. We'd garden and produce projects together, each feeding each other's creativity. Books, comics, animations, paintings. We'd take care of one another and be one big, happy, insane family. Maybe it's just a dream, maybe it will fade away, but the idea makes me so happy. And according to them, it fills them with joy too. I know some/all would back out if we actually tried to do this... But it's such a nice idea to have a partnership, a group, a place where you belong. Because all of us, our main issue, is we're all misfits of our own communities and families. Would you do something like this? Is this the frivolity of a bunch of the 18-23 year olds that somehow missed on the NEED to become a parent or get married RIGHT AWAY? If it brings us happiness, should we attempt it? What would you do, minus the kids and spouse for all you that have those?
