not a good idea. Had I joined a household right away I would not still be a
part of the SCA, I found that those who would have taken me in right away
are not those that I wish to continue associating with. I think it takes at
least 6 months of active participation before you know where you might fit
in and be happy. I'm going on 3 years in and I am slowly changing my focus
and have just recently found my niche.

know what they want from the SCA. I think it can limit who you meet
and what you can become if you get into a household to early.
Households are good when they are good and very bad when they are bad.
