I've been stuck at my quest for two years now. I'm not very good at this.

I know I wanted many things. Gaia Gold is everywhere. It comes and goes quite easily lol

Yes, it happened sometimes. I make sure it's worth it. smile

I usually make gold and either never use it or give it away. There aren't many items that I really need or want at this moment so I usually just go with the latter and give gold away to friends.

I cannot save my gold for squat. If I am questing something I need to get the gold for it all at once. XD

At the moment, I seem to be making gold faster than I can spend it. Which is good. In a way. I tend to pick up a few RIG fails each month & most REIs when they hit 2nd gen, but my gold is still increasing.

It's such a weird place to be in. I'm still not sure what to think about it. Do I go out & buy the 10 mil+ items that I've idly considered owning but never quested because there's so many nice things I can get for less? Do I start a new collection? I'm basically done on my rainbow items quest for now & summons quest. Do I spend it all on Toasted Cheese Sandwiches from Buttercup Cafe? I'm still thinking about it. Meanwhile, my gold count is increasing.

Accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative...

I just save all my gold on a mule, but even then sometimes I'll transfer it all and spend it. gonk
But I'm really trying hard not to impulse buy things. I'm one of those people that likes something, then gets it in every color. My inventory used to be HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE, but now what I have on is basically all I have. Lol

I'm on a gold shop buyout quest, so I buy stuff alllll the time AND it's for my quest.

But once in a while I do get sidetracked... I bought two The Wretcheds after seeing Les Mis onstage a couple weeks ago, for instance >.>

Story of my Gaian life when I was questing.
I always felt like the users in the marketplace were against me. Conspiring together because they knew I was questing for an item, so the price would go up. Then bringing it way down after I've bought it. Hahaha.

But I get over quickly. Because if I took the time to quest for it, then I'm gonna want it regardless.

Though I'm looking at quite a few of my items now, and I'm thinking "Why'd I want this in the first place?"

my biggest mistake was pale marionette for 16 mil.
do i regret it every day? do i wish i would have sold
it when the price was PLUMMITING and then
rebought it so i had gold for my ringmasters? yes,
but i do love it so~ and the story of the quest for
it is so charming. q u q <33 it proves how much my
friends love me <33 myuuus~ q u q <33

but i try to be safe. i read graphs and stuff on the
items. i have the skills an exchanger / vender, but i
make profits doing art... and i have the laziness of a
noob. q u q uwaaaah~ i need more gold though.
> .>

i feel so poor with only 1.25 million. > ___ < it's like,
I'M POOOOOOR. Q A Q but then my friends get mad
at me for saying that. xDDD because i have a ton of
items... but... eep. not a ton of pure gold. = 3 = uwah~

I try to save. I really, really do. And for a while there I sat on 2mil ... then it dropped to 1mil ... now I'm way below that. Too many items!

None of which helps my quest for a Case, which I've been going after for ... I don't know, a couple of years now? stressed

Most of the gold I lose it when a RIG I really like comes out, and I just have to have a certain item OMG RIGHT NAOW!!!
Then the item drops in price a few hundred K in a month's time.
I almost never sell these sorts of items, so I don't lose gold exactly. Just net worth.
