Its weird, Despite how simple this sort of thing should be, I experienced a near crippling anxiety in starting this thread. First I thought, "First impressions matter, so make it a great one.". Then I thought, "How?" . . . One hour, a couple news articles, a few homework problems, and three motivational videos later I settled for, "Hello". As an aspiring engineering student, I decided that "hello" would be both practical, economic, and most importantly, socially "safe". Also I hypothesized that the quotation marks might just improve its visibility . . . ever so slightly. (Does everyone go through that process or was it just me?) Anyways, I am a 24 year guy. I left high school for 7 years, working and such, but now I'm finally going to college. I really love astronomy; however I'm going to study Engineering (Aiming for Engineering Physics, but I have to do some time at community college first to do the prerequisite courses) so that I can actually be involved in it the way I'd like to. I got wind of the new forum updates, via email (was a quiet member on the old site) and decided it would be a great place to meet people with similar interests and career goals (probably the standard new member assumption). So hello there. Nice to meet you all. Question: Is it possible to set up a 'private-ish' study group using this website and if it is how do you do it? Note: I had to add "...Reader" to the title. Two word titles .... the more you know.
