So, this is kind of a loose concept.
The forums have been less active than they were in 2003-2008, and we've had a few new members that don't have an opportunity to post as much and/or don't come into irc, which is where a lot of the socializing/getting to know you activities happen. (/server dfx.at + #burrito, jsyk)
So I was wondering - say you meet someone and you get one opportunity to translate who you are to them with a story from your life. Which one would you tell? Why? Could you tell it here so the rest of us can munch popcorn and enjoy your tales of woe and triumph?

Go go gadget introspect, Matazone~

ETA: or 283798349 (max) stories because this is a whole thread and i love stories. stop reading the rules, half of you have cursed in posts and yet you listen to me!? bah humbug etc. :P

Aww!

Mine is shorter and less full of romance and dramtic close calls with fire breathing moths.

About thirteen years ago I was very lonely. I'd had a bad break up and due to the nature of the relationship I also didn't have any close friends in Winchester. I was sleeping very badly, working hard at a job and throwing myself into my studies. At night I would go out running through the city and the surrounding countryside, sometimes for many hours - I didn't seem to get tired, I could just run for as long as I wanted. (The only time I turned around was when I realised that, yes, this was probably becoming a motorway, and no, it probably wasn't going to turn back towards Winchester anywhere in the next ten miles).

I discovered that quite often there would be small parties on top of a nearby hill, called St Catherine's. I believe it is man-made and it is very steep. Climbing up it through the woods and up the steep grassy sides was always tricky in the dark. It was a way of finding company, and I made a few casual friends through doing it, which was better than nothing.

There is a maze cut into the grass at the top of the hill. This is an old-fashioned maze, where there is only one path and the point is to follow it to the end. There is nothing to stop you walking straight to the middle and the middle is jus a patch of grass. The story runs that it was cut there by a student at Winchester College before he killed himself - I don't know if that's true.

One night when the hill was empty, with the city lights spread out in the distance below, I stood at the start of the maze. It was raining lightly. It was summer, but the rain and a light breeze made it cold. For some reason I took off all of my clothes and slowly walked the path of the maze, barefoot and naked. I reached the middle and the only thing I found there was myself.

I think that was a turning point in my life, but I couldn't tell you exactly why.
