Hi! My name is Alex. I'm from Germany, so excuse the spelling and grammatical mistakes I am bound to make.
I'm 18 years old and I got into Buddhism about a month or two ago.
I don't really have any friends to discuss my views with, let alone get any help regarding my practice from, so I thought it would be great to become a part of this wonderful community.
PS: I quite enjoy the bandwidth of emoticons which I am able to choose from.
