About Me

tl;dr version:

(text last updated 23 October 2013)


Hello! I'm Q. You can call me Q or B, doesn't matter. I come off kind of intimidating in the forums, but really I am super approachable, I promise! Feel free to PM or comment me.

I joined Gaia on Jan 31, 2004. I'm now 26 years old. I've done a lot with my life.
I have experience with horses, teaching, mentoring, and all sorts of random odd jobs.
I've traveled to many places around the world.
I have a degree in video production. I've been editing video as a hobby since 2002. I had a brief professional stint before deciding to keep it a hobby.
I joined the US Navy later and got out in August 2012. I did several things there. Worked as an emergency first responder (for damage control), security guard, AV tech, solder tech, and briefly as a consult for AFN Sasebo (Japan).
I've done freelance writing, videography, graphic and web design. I've illustrated two children books and written my own novel.

I've lived in: (USA) Georgia, Florida, New York, Hawaii, and (Japan) Sasebo. When in the USN, I was on a forward deployed amphibious assault ship, out to sea 200+ days a year.

After Gaia's cash push I've left Gaia.

'Sup? I'm Q.

The Q that is me is completely different from the Q character. I am 27, ex-US Navy, and currently live in Hawaii.

The character is here.

      This is my new one! I check this one all the damn time, haha. I do a lot of selling on Craigslist and eBayClassifieds and purchasing from Amazon. You'd be the only person I'd actually be socializing with on that e-mail, hehe. I don't hand it out to anyone.

      Run away~
      Be free~
      Save yourself!

      Gabby left. Jay left. More and more people do. I should leave, too, but addictions suck. I could give you my new e-mail address if you do decide to leave. I'll give it to you anyway, haha.

      My offline life still pretty much means hanging around at home, holding down the fort. I worked for a while in a clothing distribution warehouse and I loved it, but Rick wanted to be the one to support. We actually have a friend living with us right now while the rest of you I know from online. lol I’m a social butterfly living an anti-social life!

      Drama seems to find me offline and online. While working at my warehouse job, people were drawn to me to get me involved in whatever issue they were having, which I always tried to wiggle out of. It’s like, what, is there a sign on my forehead that says “drama dumpster”? gonk

      I remember how you would avoid it if you could, yeah. You were pretty good at wiggling out of it, too, in the threads. There one moment, gone the next~

      Where do you do your Gaia loitering now? Casual Discussion? Barton Town? I remember you liking it there more than Lifestyle Discussion because it was just down the shitter.

      Children definitely aren’t for everyone, haha. I admit, they are a handful and some days I want to rip my hair out, but thankfully I have some friends with kids of their own and they happen to be around the same age as my boys, so they have play dates! My grandmother on my mother’s side of the family hates how domestic I am. lol My sister pretty much feels the same way. She feels the same way you do, haha!

      I tend to find drama wherever I go. No matter what site I go to. gonk

      I know I could have and I do sincerely apologize. After all of that hoopla, I dropped a lot of things, which included close friends such as yourself and others. I felt that I had done enough damage and didn’t want to burden anyone anymore, so I ran away – so to speak.

      I’m very happy to hear about your situation! You deserve happiness. A good place to be. And nope CPS was never called, no authorities or anyone else to bother us. We were nervous for a while, unsure if we were going to be expecting anyone, but we came to the conclusion that even if someone did come to the door there was no crime committed. Things have actually dramatically spiked upward in improvement since he moved here. We are living happily and taking a big step into making our family bigger. Marriage, trying for a child, et cetera. It’s all very exciting!

      As far as Gaia goes, haha, it’s an addiction for me. It’s changed so much, though, so that bums me out a bit. The LD is utter s**t. I’m a fairly active CBer now while dancing between In The News, Extended Discussion and Morality & Religion. Despite all the drama that did go down all that time ago, there are many others that have found me back and I’ve only been met with warm greetings and blessings for the marriage. I got some beef from Apa or Frost (or whatever) for a while for being back, but I always replied with smileys and just kept going on with conversations with him, haha.

      I look totally different now, though. I don’t know if you remember what I looked like before, but I was pretty big. Chuuuunky. I’m still fat, but not AS fat. Yay! Boop. I’ve put on weight since that picture, though. Bleeegh.

      I’m talking too much! Agh!

      It's good to be back! I'm so glad to hear from you, too! I was sad when I came back and I followed your post history and you said you left. I didn't check again after that. I told Rick and we were both bummed. I remember reading back when things were patchy that you thought I didn't like you anymore or you weren't my friend, noooo. I'm just a ******** ditz.

      Rick says hi~

      What have you been up to? How have things been? What's new in the life of Bornes? smile

...I admit I had a mini-freak out because you're like one of the only ones I recognize by name but I just started getting back into forums so yeah. I've been lurking since August. Gaia hasn't changed much. They release way too many cash items and expect us to donate gold for virtually nothing but meh, it's a business. I hadn't logged in for like two years before August. I think. Hell if I remember. I was curious as to what was in the Loyal's club thing to be honest. razz
Ha, thanks. Yeah, lots of s**t happened. And having kids kinda changes your perspective on life. It's suddenly not about you and all that blah blah...yeah. And it took a while but yeah, I'm happy. It's kinda weird lol.
