I'm sorry if my long and rambling introduction of myself is annoying or burdensome to read, but I thought it might be nice for me to give a brief intro before I truly involve myself in the forum. I wasn't sure where to put this, so I put it in the "New World Women" section in order to meet some fellow female Rush fans!
My name is Audrey, I am a high school senior from rural Maine (I will be attending Boston College in the fall. Woooh, go eagles!) Relating to college, I wrote my supplement for BC using the prompt "Great art evokes a sense of wonder. It nourishes the mind and spirit. Is there a particular song, poem, speech, or novel from which you have drawn insight or inspiration?" and wrote about how The Trees influenced my intellectual curiosity and introduced me to the philosophy of Ayn Rand.
I have been a fan of Rush since I was 6 and my father (a HUGE Rush fan) introduced me to Snakes and Arrows, which at that point had just come out. I was enthralled and have been a fan ever since. I am incredibly lucky and grateful that I got the opportunity to see them in concert 4 times (not a lot compared to some of you, but I am young, give me a break!) My favorite Rush album has changed many times over the years, but at the moment it is probably either Permanent Waves or Hemispheres?
I listen to a wide variety of other musical artists including (but not limited to): R.E.M, Talking Heads, Primus, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, Triumph, King Crimson, Jethro Tull, Yes and Genesis (I also love jazz, but didn't put all of my favorite jazz musicians)! However, Rush is my personal favorite, and I am known to obsess over them. I essentially made this account to have a place to nerd out about my favorite band without annoying people around me.
I hope to spend some quality time here and get to know all of you!
