    Hello, I'm EJ. 

    I didn't hear too many fireworks from where I was. I like watching them but I hate the sound!

    Anyways, I'd like to chat. I'm 18 and into music, art, nature (especially mushrooms), learning new things, etc. But I'll talk about pretty much anything haha I'm so bored in hospital, I'd love some conversation.

    Hope you're good, I'd love to hear more about you if you want to tell me. :)

    I'm new here as well. I also hate fireworks, I love watching them but the noise terrifies me - had a bad experience as a child and each year it seems to get worse. My response to them I mean. At least its (mostly) over for a little while, we can relax a little again!
    Hope you are doing OK this morning and have a good day x
