24th/25th January 2012, somewhere around midnight
I guess I should start believing in angels. How would you feel if you came online and all of a sudden your quest was finished?
Amazed? Thankful? Confused?
It's all of that for me and honestly, it feels weird.
I've been ogling the Horns of the Demon from my first days on Gaia and it was THE item I wished for. There were many others, more expensive and with more poses but they weren't like this, simple, classic, something you could use on a lot of avatars giving them more personality without distracting from the outfit.
Once questing items without having to be a great artist became possible, I started saving. In the end it was the item I decided to give up everything else for. And I guess this quest was important for me in a way. I should focus more on what is really important everywhere in life, even if that means having to leave behind habits or things that once made me happy.
I would like to use the first post to thank theannacracker who decided to leave Gaia and chose me in her giveaway to get that much wanted item.
[I'll write a bit more after sleeping.]
21st January 2012
It feels like s**t is getting so real. I got half the gold I need (aiming for 8mil because of the inflation) and I just changed the avatar I had for over a year. I took off most of the items I won't wear later so I can sell them.
I still wish I could speed this quest up more but I'm actually getting on pretty well lately. Let's just hope that my items sell quickly :3
Please read on to see how I want to accomplish my quest, why I would be glad if you helped out and to take a look at my wishlist!
How will I do it?
I can't really afford to put real money into this so I will stick with whatever else I can do:
I used to play Booty Grab a lot but it's really laggy lately so I don't go looking for threads anymore and just click whatever crosses my path while posting.
I currently try selling some of the items I got in my years of being here. Sadly, the items I like the most are also the most expensive ones but it's a start.
My art isn't really good and takes forever to finish, so it's not really an option but I will consider it if I happen to get a generous donation.
I can probably help you with problems you encounter using Windows, Linux, programming in Java and web design so just ask.
Why would I need help?
University keeps me busy and I need to see my friends, too.
There's more but it doesn't really belong here.
Why I would greatly appreciate your help:
I know that I could do this pretty much on my own although it takes forever. But every bit added to my quest takes away a little of the pressure to reach my goal before the price pops up to impossible.
How can you help?
Of course there is no need to donate to me to help me. Bumping this thread helps as well. And wishing me good luck with my quest also makes me happy heart And I love art, although this is totally off topic!
If you feel generous though, I'd be happy if you
* tipped my post(s)
* donated gold, random items, whatever
* made me an offer if you are selling Horns at a cheap price whenever you feel the money I have suits you (although I'm still far from that point...)
Any donation, no matter how small it might be, gets you listed as my donator! I will not forget you.
You might wonder who I am and why you should give me anything. So here's a little something about me.
* My name's secret ^^ This is the internet after all. Just call me by my screen name.
* I'm 20 and from Germany.
* I study informatics.
* I want to code engines and AI (artificial intelligence) for computer games later or maybe simulations for the industry.
* I'm highly interested in the architecture of computer operating systems.
* I like to draw and chat.
* I'm quite good at speaking and writing in English but I'm a bit shy when it comes to talking to native speakers redface
* I enjoy travelling a lot.
The wonderful Dinky has just recently finished questing her horns and posted this lovely something in her quest thread:
Charity Quest Aider Thingy =P
So I've been feeling a little demonic delight since I got my horns <3 And I've decided to spread the joy, I'm going to donate 20k to one person every time I make 100k towards my current quest. Currently as this thread has not been noticed I've been donating to Dunkeltier. I met them in a charity thread when a girl called Toxic Jello was leaving Gaia and giving away all her items. Since then the people of that thread have regrouped and formed a new charity thread you may wanna check out here. Dunk and I visit from time to time =D And if you fancy a donation from me yourself just hang around here and provide a link to your quest thread ;0
Total Donations: 40k
Isn't she the best? If you read this, please stop by her quest thread and say hello so she won't be lonely. outdated sad
