New to this a looking for guidance and friends

Hey I’m new to this and I’m looking for guidance in being a furry in mid TN. I’ve done a lot of research and started my fursona.

Honestly the one thing I would do is to get some art of your fursona, i would recommend a ref. Sheet just in case you think of getting a fursuit or more art. Besides that just talk to others and maybe even make your own art! This is just the start so don’t rush it!! And always know that the furry Fandom is always there to lift you up when you need us. Hope this helps! :heart::heart:
