I’m interested in becoming a member, but I have some questions about how everything works. So I have some backstory I’d like to get out, I hope nobody minds too much. I’ve struggled with alcohol since I was 12. I moved to Texas to get away from unhealthy environments, in hope of finding more opportunities here. I have been sober as long as I have been in Dallas, which is one and a half years. Since then I have really dived in deep to a lot of hobbies. I love woodworking, solder art, drawing, CAD, electronics, etc. I just really love tinkering and making things. I joke often and say that my hobby is finding new hobbies. I pick one up for a month or so, then move on to the next. This has made me a bit of a jack of all trades, but master of none. I am always excited to learn but, I struggle to stick to one thing. Mostly because I burn myself out very quickly. I often will go back to old hobbies but it takes some time. This raises my first question, do I have to stick to one thing if I’m a member, could I just explore and learn freely?
I’m very much a recluse, mostly because of sobriety. I would say I am introverted but I really don"t believe that to be true. I’m excited to talk to people and love listening to other people. But due to my appearance not many people are open to talking to me. I have a lot of tattoos and some on my face as well (which I’m working on getting removed). I’m trying to find myself, better myself, and get out a bit more. In my search for a healthy alternative to a bar, to be able to socialize, I found Dallas Makerspace. So my second question, is this a good place for a person like me to make friends?
I appreciate any responses, thank you!
