My name is David from England. I live in Nottingham but was born in Newcastle upon Tyne.

I have been using Zoom to follow Workers Educational Association courses (Creative Writing, History, popular Science topics) and similar things on University of the Third Age. I am retired but previously worked in Social Work as well as about fifteen years in total on the railway.

I have found the U3A invaluable for not only learning resources but also social groups such as the walking groups and periodic meetings for drinks etc in this area.

Hi! Bri,

 

I am Adiel Ortega. It is pronounced as (ay-dee-yell) or A.D.L or Ariel but replace R with a D. or "Adiee" whichever. I prefer "ay-dee-yell" though ^-^

 

Location: Anthem, AZ

 

Favorite things to do: Study, talk to my friends, knit, go hiking, Go to the Library and use the Big White Board to study, I love music too. Learning Japanese and the piano on my spare time.

Why did I join the community? Zoom is a good tool but I am little bit disappointed of it not being compatible with Mac computers, too much glitches. I want to sort this out and let the community know. Overall I love zoom.

Hi Sara!

 

What are some of your favorite things to do in or around London? I love to visit and was just there in March. I love the history, the energy, and the vibe. Finding hidden gems that aren't super touristy and crowded is always my mission!

 

Cheers!

Hi All!

I'm Sheila (aka: the other Sheila K). 😁  I've been working remotely since long before the pandemic. I'm an INFP/J (depends on the day) and prefer solitude with occasional social gatherings so this workstyle is perfect for me!

 

Location: Denver, CO 

 

Favorite things to do: Photography, travel, journal, and make spreadsheets for everything! It's a problem. 

 

How long I’ve been using Zoom? A year and change perhaps. 

 

What’s your go-to virtual background? Lately, it's been a bookcase wall full of old leather bound books or any of my own photos. It's hard to find backdrops that make it look like you're actually sitting in a corner office with floor-to-ceiling windows and a fabulous view.

 

​​What's the most unique Zoom event you've attended in the last year? A party with virtual games. 

 

I look forward to many years at Zoom!

 

Cheers!

I am David, living in the Midlands but originally from Newcastle.

I use Zoom mostly for on line courses which is an important recreation for me being retired, I have taken part in on line Creative Writing courses also others about history, popular science subjects and anything else that takes my fancy.

I am member of the University of the Third Age, which is a community group that organises talks by members on any subject which might appeal to the group.  Zoom has proved useful for linking me to on line courses taking places in other areas of the country.
