The One Known as Alec Ikiiki
I have been away from Gaia for well over a year.
I have discovered that every summer, when the University lets out, the city
decides to work on the roads. This tends to interfere with the cable lines.
I have cable internet and in the summer of 2013 I lost my internet for awhile.
It was also incredibly unreliable during summer 2014. In 2013, life made me
realize that I needed to focus on reality instead of the virtual world and Gaia
was no longer a priority. In all honesty, I forgot about it.
I apologize to anyone that may have been concerned with my disappearance.
During the time without internet I took to other activities like container gardening,
crocheting, and other miscellaneous projects.
One of my cats spent the week in the vet due to a urinary blockage. This resulted
in two months worth of rent going to vet bills and rethinking necessary expenses.
Drama inflicted my family as well. I will not go into details. However, I lost
my grandmother during that time just two months before she turned 96.
After having braces for 33 months,they were finally removed,
and after 36 months, my braces were paid off.
I finally got married to the man I have been with for over 9 years. I still refuse
to have children. That's why I have a 7 year old Russian Blue, and a
10 year old American Short-hair.
After 10 years, I have finally returned to the University as a student majoring
in Biology. This has resulted in a lack of a social life.
I've become so incredibly stressed out due to my math classes that I decided
to check out Gaia again to see how things were. Unfortunately, I'm disappointed
with what the creators of Gaia have done. The economy is completely screwed
up with items commonly selling for well over a billion gold.
I may stick around to chat with people I once knew but don't expect much
from me. I've lost my will to quest for items with the ridiculous inflation
and I haven't drawn anything for over a year.
Capturing those lil Grunnies at Halloween 2005
(AKA, How'd you get that Grunny on your head?)
Halloween 2K5 required people to post in the special event forum in order to "capture" grunnies (green bunnies) that were part of the Gaia Story Line. After capturing so many grunnies, you gained levels. Level 1 and Level 2 allowed you to receive the Grunny Shirt and Grunny Slippers. Level 3 was the first stage of your avatar becoming an undead, with red sunken eyes and grey skin, but you still had your hair. Level 4 your avatar lost his/her hair and grew two huge lumps on his/her head. Level 5 a grunny popped out of your head and appeared to be feeding on your brain.
I am one of the few left that worked hard for this grombie (grunny zombie) skin and still has it. This skin is no longer available to obtain EDIT: It seems that sometime in 2014(?) Gaia released the different grombie skins in the Treehouse. The main method to buy them is with wing stickers that are available during events.
