Regarding my Quest.
Oh look, I am writing again. This is good.

During my (admittedly short) semester break, people on Gaia have been really generous. I have never been one with millions of gold - well, once, I had about a million, and that was a long time ago, and it was quite by accident as well. I had the April Fool's item, the one with many cat faces? Yes, that one. I sold that and I got a million for it.

But then I spent the gold and then, I was forever questing for things. I depended on the generosity of other Gaians. Whatever it is that I have right now is either bought using the gold donated to me or directly given to me by benefactors, anonymous or otherwise.

When I am on this website, I think 90% of my time is always spent towards bumping my quest thread. I feel uneasy if I am not bumping my thread. Of course, I visit the WG forum and play Booty Grab and stalk some free tektek shops, but bumping my quest thread has always been the main priority. (Which is only natural, I suppose, if you keep wanting a lot of things when you have very little gold.)

Well, this afternoon, another generous Gaian has appeared. She donated a substantial amount of gold - the most amount of gold I have ever received in my short GaiaOnline life, in fact.

Of course I am terribly grateful and, quite honestly, I'm at a loss of words to say. I have never had this much before, and I am really clueless as to what I am supposed to do with it all, and what I am supposed to do with my time on GaiaOnline now.

I mean, my first instinct is to keep posting yummy_smilies/icon_puddi.gif in my quest thread and keep bumping it, but... I don't have to anymore, do I? Because I've pretty much achieved what I wanted recently (Happy Capsule!), and I'm not really questing anything major anymore.

Bumping my thread is almost like a reflex now to me - but now that I have nothing to quest for...

What do I do?

I thought of turning the Detergent Quest Thread into a Detergent Charity, but, you know I still have things that I want (see that? That's greed. Human beings are greedy! They want AAALLL the pixelated items if it's at all possible! smilies/icon_scream.gif) and I'm not sure I'm ready to commit to a charity thread. (Besides, semester break's almost over...)

I have also thought about helping others bump their quest threads. It's simple and it isn't a hassle to me anyway, since I feel really odd when I'm not bumping my thread. Now that my thread doesn't need bumping as much as before, I could put my efforts into other threads, no?

Ah well. We'll see what happens.

I guess now all I have to do is keep making my avatar pretty...

Or maybe I should create the other Sacra Cousins avatars.


That's all from me, I think.

There should be an existential crisis hotline for people who have finished questing. Just sayin', is all.

Indeed! Seriously, do you know anyone who needs thread-bumping? Maybe I can help...
