hey there ppl

I'm casino/elias (or whatever nicknames u can take from that).

I'm 18. Ace, aromantic, agender, nd i live in australia~

 

I live in a fairly isolated spot and generally have zero social interaction irl outside of my immediate family, so i'm always excited to find somewhere online where i might just fit in ^_^

 

i have dissociation, derealism, and depersonalization issues, not feeling at all connected to my physical self or surroundings, but i'm only really saying so because it sometimes causes an odd inconsistency in my manner and personality lol. i also have a truly awful memory pls forgive me

 

anyway, when i first came across the term 'aromantic' i felt freed and blessed; it made sense of so many things, and has lead to a lot of other very helpful knowledge, but i haven't met a lot of aromantics in the past and never even considered that there could be whole forums about it!

 

my current main interest is collecting and propogating succulents (plants), bc they are gr8 and i love them 

 

as i said before i'm not too good at social things and such a long post is makin me nervous so uh, bye and thanks for havin me  !

em is a cool sounding pronoun! Where does it come from?

 

It was  proposed by Tintajl in 1977 and it's also known as an object form of the Elverson (1975) pronoun 'ey'. There's a long list of proposed gender-neutral English pronouns on the Wikipedia.

Welcome to Arocalypse, Elias!! :icecream::icecream: Oooh succulents are so great! <3 I'm not very good at social things either and am in a similar situation as you; I only talk to my immediate family and only when I have to. I've found it much easier to socialize with people on forums. I hope you enjoy it here!!

Welcome to arocalypse!! I've got a couple of succulents myself, they're such beautiful plants and easy to maintain! And somehow I've managed to make mine flower a lot even though I'm shitty at keeping a reasonable watering schedule.

Welcome to Arocalypse! :icecream::softserve: 

 

I used to have some aloes, but they died on me. :( They always grow really tall and then tip over and uproot themselves. I'm not sure if you have the same selection of succulents in Australia (I live in the US).

I have a few australian natives but most come from other countries ! i have a lot that are native to Africa and some from South America... but there seems to be awesome plants in every country and on every continent, so i usually don't mind where they're from ^_^

 

and your aloes must have been very tall! i'm impressed tbh, only one of my plants is unstable and that's because it has an absolutely enormous flower stalk - i had to make a little support for it so that it doesn't just fall over lol

Hey there! Welcome to Arocalypse!

 

I want to start a small collection of succulents myself because all these pictures of them in cute planters look lovely, and I don't have a garden any more and miss growing stuff ... but apart from an aloe vera I haven't started at all! I can't find where to buy them irl and the choice online is so overwhelming! Are they difficult to grow from seed?

Actually, I think we watered them too much, which damaged their roots. We used to have a lot of house plants, and the aloes were the only succulents, so we watered them the same amount as all the other plants. All the house plants also had problems with the cats chewing on them. I might get another aloe some time and try watering it less.

(i know it was ages ago, i ran outta internet credit rip)

please be careful, almost all aloes, succulents in general, actually, are poisonous to cats! !

and you would be right - they dont like so much water. you shouldnt have any trouble though if you water them maybe once a week in summer, twice a month in winter. they're cool plants
