[PUBLIC] Welcome! / I'm back (again...)
« on: February 05, 2019, 04:16:16 am »
So a few years ago I said I was going to be more active and everything and then never followed through. In the past few years though some things have happened and recently I've been feeling the push to come back.

Among the things that happened in the interim are: my depression and anxiety worsening, my father dying in December of 2017, and my relationship of 10 years coming to an end (though it was a fairly mutual decision it still hurts a little, but I'm trying to move on as best as I can). I've gotten myself on a better medication recently and it seems to be helping some, but my therapist is thinking about adding mood stabilizers so there's that.

For anyone new or who might not remember me, my name is Matteo and I originally found The House back in 2011 and haven't ever truly left, I come and go but I still feel that this is the place for me spiritually.  ;D

Anyway, if you want to know more about me or more about the interim just ask.  :)

http://www.livescience.com/50139-ancient-egyptian-tax-receipt.html

Found this online and thought it was pretty interesting. Its from the Ptolemaic dynasty, but still rather interesting. I don't know much about the Ptolemaic rulers or the tax system they used, but they were charged in something called "talents" and had to pay a surcharge for not paying in silver--possibly. Pretty interesting, albeit short, article.

[PUBLIC] Welcome! / New guy...

I guess I should get my intro out of the way, haha, I'm pretty shy at first so I'll get it done and out of the way now.

My name is Matteo, my forum name is ShinjiDai--no real importance just a character from a story that I've been writing for a while, helps me think--anyway I've been interested in Ancient Egypt since I was a kid, as a lot of the people on here are as I have noticed from some of my lurking. I've been studying religions off and on for the better part of 7 years. None of the ones I'd studied made sense, until I read on another fora about Kemetism, then I started studying that. Something about this just resonates with me. I applied to the beginner's course and am really looking forward to it, I just hope I applied in time for the one starting May 20--if not then its not a big deal--I just really want to learn more.

I've been doing some praying and offerings every day, and I seem to be getting some results from that--I had a dream today that some of the Netjeru came and talked to me.

I look forward to getting to know you all more, as I feel like, forgive the cliche, but I feel like I've come home and this is where I belong.
