Hi everyone!

I'm Beck (short for Rebekah) and I'm 19 years old. I live right on the border between Illinois and Indiana in a boring cornfield town where nothing exciting ever happens. I am a proud sophomore honors student at Indiana State University and I'm studying English and Science education so that hopefully one day I'll be teaching in junior high or high school somewhere not too far from home. I'm an only child and I have a dog, Snowball. I mostly I keep myself busy spending time with friends and family, doing church activities, with school work (of which I have an abundance) and hobbies. I enjoy almost anything artistic - painting, acting, writing, graphic design etc and I pretty much never leave the house without a book in my hand.

It's good to "meet" all of you.

Thanks Tasia :) I'm looking forward to being able to freely discuss the Romanovs whenever I like without the others in the room looking at me like I've lost my mind!

Ok, I should have written here when I registered and that was like 7 months ago. Oops I forgot. But anyway now I'm here. So my name is Hilla and I'm 15 year old girl from Finland. I'm very proud of my name because it's the finnish name for cloudberry, which I think is a very nice berry. I'm the only child of my family and have always dreamed such siblings like OTMA had. I have a 7 year old dog, a schipperke. She's the number 1 thing in my life.
I have many hobbies like riding, singing, learning french... Next year I'm gonna start skating again. I quit when I was 6. But I love it so I want to go back to ice. In august I will go to college and start learning russia and french for real. I'm looking forward to that.
I've been interested in history since I saw the lovely cartoon movie "Anastasia" when I was little. And few years ago I started to search how things really went and bam! I got stucked in this world. But in a good way.
I'm very exited because I might have a chance to go to St. Petersburg in summer. That would be my third visit there but first time I could visit the palaces. That would be very interesting.

Funny though that I'm mostly very quiet person but sometimes, like now, I just keep talking and talking about myself  :D

Hi, Hilla! I'm glad you could join the forum!
I've never had a cloudberry...that's pretty cool! I've never heard of that. I'm 15 too! Isn't it a nice age? :D

My name is Abbigail (aka Gioia) and I live in Kentucky, USA. i've been on the forum for a few months now. Rebekah, I'm pretty nearby, state-wise, to you! :D
There is a clock that never strikes...
There is a cathedral that goes down and a lake that goes up...
There is a little carriage abandoned in the copse...
There is a troupe of little actors in costume...
And when you are hungry or thirsty, there is someone who drives you away.

Hilla, you are welcome! This is also great to have here another person from beautiful Northern Europe.

I hope you don't mind me asking, but what are your attitude to Mannerheim? Among your classmates and familiars for example? Do you study him in school? Sadly, according to my information he is becoming more and more controversial figure in Finland with a big help of different Finnish left-wing establishment.

Btw, maybe you've already seen a huge thread dedicated to him? You can find there only one of his main sides - Russian (1887-1918). Something like: brave Russian General, close to Nicholas II Officer, favourite of Polish women and man from the Petersburg - narrow, but at the same time important period of his life story. I'm planning to continue writing about him in chronologically: Finnish Civ. War, interwar period, Winter War and so on till the end.

"I think that if Shakespeare lived in our times he would not be able to write. Many of his works are not welcome on stage nowadays: The Merchant of Venice – anti-Semitism, Othello – racism, The Taming of the Shrew – sexism, Romeo and Juliet - hideous heterosexual show..." - Vladimir Bukovsky.

Hello.  I am new to the forum and wanted to say hello.  I've been interested in Russian Imperial history since I was 12 and read _Nicholas and Alexandra_ for the first time.  My self-guided study of the subject is 40 years ongoing and my biggest thrill was visiting Russia in 2005.  I'm looking forward to learning so much more from the forum.  Lynn in Texas

Hey there :) I once visited Texas (SO different from Alaska XD ) And it was beautiful!  Do you live in Dallas or San Antonio? One of my good friends lives near San Antonio :)

Nicolá, I don't mind asking but that's a very hard question. I don't see there's any attitude to him. Among my aged and a bit older finnish people he's such a neutral character. People hardly know who he was. We didn't study lot about him but I guess there will be more in higher schools. And yes, he's an controversial figure among the "big people", but not really among "the normal people" like me. Of course people have different views but they don't talk about them.

I support your plan about writing of him. People should know him better.

I'm sorry I couldn't really give you a sensible respond.

Sorry I didn't post in here before, but I only saw this thread today.  Anyway, I'm Tim, and I too like the Romanov family.  OTMA is what gets me the most.  I have seen many pictures of these four beautiful young women and it's horrible what happened to them.  I'm glad I found this board, where there are others who, like me, remember and honour the last Tsar and his family.

Anyway, I'm Canadian, and I like to write stories, mostly science fiction and fantasy.  I also write stories based on shows such as Charmed, Doctor Who, and Will & Grace.  I'm looking forward to being a member here.
