Returning after a long time - em hotep, all! ^^

Em hotep, everyone!

It was quite a long time ago when I checked the forums of the House last time, or even got in touch with the Netjeru, so I try to re-introduce myself.

I’m a 28-year-old Hungarian Shemsu, who joined the community in 2020. I live in Budapest with the love of my life and our 9-year-old cat, Charlotte. I’m a product & marketing manager at my fiancée’s Warhammer 40,000-themed café-shop-club, and I’m also a FatChanceBellyDance®Style (formerly American Tribal Style®) dancer and (hopefully) soon-to-be FCBD®Style teacher.
Beside dancing, I also like reading, listening to music, collecting Tarot and Oracle cards (also doing some readings), wargaming, going to trips and learn about different cultures. I also love studying Ancient Kemet, of course (I almost became and Egyptologist, but university was just too stressful for me at that time, so I left it).
My RPD was in January 2021, when I was introduced to the community as Hethertshema’anefer (meaning “Hethert makes beautiful music”), Divined Daughter of Hethert-Sekhmet and Beloved of Bast and Yinepu-Wepwawet - and also the one who got the longest Shemsu-name ever, haha. That was a joyful moment with a lot of emotions for sure.

I had a little crisis-like thing in my life, which distracted me from focusing on my spiritual life, so I needed to solve those profane problems (and still have to deal with the aftermath). Fortunetaly some good things happened as well - I was engaged, for example, and we soon start planning our wedding with my fiancée.
Good thing that I also found my passion in a modern, group improvisational style of belly dance (which is FCBD®Style), and I’m training hard to become a teacher, and also to win (or at least get a good place in) competitions.
Good thing that I’m part of my love’s business and we do it as a family-business, so I feel this job much more stable and nice than any other I’ve had before.
But, after stabilizing my life and finding my passion, I’ve also realised that I miss the Netjeru and being part of the community, so, at least from Wep Ronpet, I try to be more active and start doing the Senut again. We moved to our current flat not a long time ago, so not even my altar has a place yet. It’s quite a small apartment and one cannot have too much private sphere, but maybe I can think about a solution - a “box-altar” I can put away or something. If anybody has any experience about it, feel free to write and share your thoughts on it, I would gladly accept some advices on how to make a movable altar.
And, of course, I also look forward to see how things will change around the House, like we will still have the RPD or not, how the clergy and priest-training will change, etc (yes, I had a call to become a priest myself, but now I don’t want to think about it, just about to reconnect first).

So, I hope I can be here more often, and I wish everyone good health and a joyful Summer with your loved ones!

Welcome back, Shema’a! I’m always so glad when Mamma’s children return to the fold!

When you do get your shrine sorted out, do share photos? Please, :smile:

Thank you very much for your kind words! :blush: If any questions come up, I will definitely ask them. :blush:

Thank you very much! :blush: I’m going to look around then, perhaps some of those members shared already their portable shrines. :open_mouth:

Thank you so much, Neheh! :blush: It is actually Her, I think, Who sent me a suggestion about being a bit more active around the House, so here I am. :smile:
If I find a solution and manage to make it real, I will surely share some photos about the shrine. :blush:

Em hotep and welcome!

Before my back decided to go painful on me, I was a Middle Eastern inspired dancer for a long time. Mostly ATS, but my focus for the latest time has been Tribal Fusion. There are a few other dancers in the House as well.

@mauvedragon Thank you! :blush:

@Ankhetbast Thank you very much! It’s always nice to meet fellow dancers, especially if they are ATS dancers. :blush: Some of my good friends are also Tribal Fusion dancers, they are all amazing, like this branch of non-authentic belly dance styles. I’m sorry about your back - I hope you get well soon and return to dancing! :heart:
