Howdy ya'll. My name is Melody/Mel/Melly/etc (any one of those is fine). I'm 19 years old and in my second year of university at the moment, though I do hold a bar job back in my hometown. I am not a registered member, as I need that $200 for books and art supplies, so unfortunately becoming a registered member of the Church of Satan
is not a priority right now, and probably won't be for a number of years. I have a wonderful boyfriend, a loving family and incredibly understanding friends. I'm really friendly and sweet (I think anyway) and am very rarely on the serious side, but I will make an honest effort to leave my sillies elsewhere when participating in discussions here.
I have been shying away from my family's 'lazy' Anglican upbringing and unknowingly towards a LeVayen mind-set from a rather young age. My knowledge of this was non-existent as I live in hick-town and had very slow dial-up (as a matter of fact, we still have slow dial-up). It was not until I was 16 years old and doing a project in, of all things, a Catholic high school religion class, did I stumble across the concept of LeVayen Satanism. Upon reading through the website and getting my hands on a copy of the Satanic bible, I realized this was for me. My priorities, mind-set and general way of life meshed so perfectly it was almost a little shocking (just an fyi, I ended up doing my religion project on LeVayen Satanism and 98%. I lost marks because I did not provide enough graphics. I was too excited for graphics). Shortly after doing this project, as well as more research and thinking, I decided to identify myself as a LeVayen Satanist.
I put off joining this forum for over a year, as I felt incredibly intimated. It was not until recently that I gained a lot more confidence, maturity, and tact (in both the online and read world); I feel like I could be a productive member here because of this.
I look forward to having meaningful discussions and meeting new friends with similar ways of life.
Ha-HA thank you for reading the wall of text.
