Some relevant info:
-I'm PST, and don't usually login until 6pm or later, and occasionally play until 2am or later.
-I have 1.6mil SP (so yes, kind of a noob).
-I'm smart, I learn quickly, I enjoy helping & working with others, and I take pride and enjoyment in doing things well, while remaining aware that this is just a game.
-I'd prefer to play with people who share those qualities with me (or at least most of them
-I'm still getting my feet wet, and I don't know for sure what I want to end up striving for in the long term.
-As such, I'm up for pretty much any sort of activity so I can find out what I like.
-That said, while I think it is awesome that pirating is a viable profession in EVE, yo-ho, yo-ho, it's not the life for me.
said, the one area that has caught my eye is exploration, which sounds positively nifty. PLUS, I think the Heron/Buzzard looks AWESOME.
-A big corporation in a big alliance with an established presence and infrastructure sounds cool.
-A medium corporation where I won't be lost in the crowd and can make a noticeable contribution sounds cool.
-A small corporation with Joe-bob, his three buddies, and their alts who "will have a POS in 0.0 any day now, srsly" sound a lot less cool.
-0.0 space kind of scares me, but I have a hunch that it's mostly due to my ignorance of what goes on out there.
-I'm a college senior; EVE is not a #1 priority, and for that matter, not a #2.
-I'm a college senior; if I'm online on a Friday/Saturday night, don't be surprised if I'm three or four deep.
-In the interest of full disclosure, I'm a virtual tranny (note to oblivious: that means while my character has lady parts, real me has man parts.)
-At the end of the day, I'm here to have a good time and fly a super-cool spaceship.
-If you've got a corp where it sounds like I would fit in, I'd be positively interested in hearing from you.
