about me

My profile layout and "about me" will change often (the previous more so than the latter). Just a lil heads up.
Last updated: 7-15-10


My name is CeCelia, I live in Washington state and I was born on June 30th. Now that you know that, I'm expecting presents. Not really, but they would be loved I'm happily married to an amazing, goofy man as of March 10, 2009. We have a gorgeous and intelligent child, Kiera, whom was born on November 22nd of 2009.

I started gaia in 2005. When I was new here I mostly stayed in the CB in hangout forums. Then the CB went to hell, so I migrated to the GD. Then the GD went to hell, so I migrated to the LD. Now the LD's gone to hell, so I desperately look for conversation anywhere. I still hope that the LD goes back to how it was, though. It was like my second home. I'm constantly looking for new things for my avatar, avatar art, custom anything, role plays, and a good hangout. If you know of any, you should tell me.

As for life off of gaia, I love playing games. My current addictions are: Dragon Age (origins and origins awakening), Portal (greatly anticipating the second’s arrival), Castle Crashers (my husband love playing it together), and Onechanbara (who knew that bikinis, samuai skills, and zombies went so well together?). I'm horrible when it comes to xbox games, because I'm addicted to getting all the achievements. I also play D&D with my husband and friends, WoW, and I'm really looking forward to the release of TOR. My favorite is D&D, though. If you've never played, I greatly encourage it.

I also love books and music. Reading is a big hobby of mine and I love hearing recommendations from others. My favorite book that I've come across so far is "the Sword of Shannara" by Terry Brooks. If you like action packed fantasies that also hold some truth to them, you'll love "the Sword of Shannara". It's the first in a series, technically (there are books based on a time before "the Sword of Shannara", but they were written afterwards). I love all kinds of music, but rock and many of its branches are my favorite. I also love to play music. I can play both clarinet and piano, but I enjoy playing piano the most. I get no greater satisfaction than that of my fingers gliding across the ivory keys and spilling out my emotions in a musical form.

Some other things that I love are The Big Bang Theory, the television series; orange juice; the smell of a new book; the smell of freshly cut grass; large bodies of water; thunder storms, especially on hot summer nights; walking on fresh, green grass barefoot; swings; sunsets; horror films, excluding the ones that are all gore; playing with my daughter; garlic toast; Italian sausage; traveling to foreign countries; and, of course, my hubby.

There are many quotes that I personally love and live by. One of which is "dum spiro spero," which is Latin for "while I breath I hope." Two others, that are closely tied together (in my belief, at least), are "carpe diem" and "laissez les bon temps roulez". "Carpe diem" is Latin for "seize the day," while "laissez les bon temps roulez" is French for "let the good times roll." I love quotes about life, philosophy, love, and inner strength. Know a good quote that you would like to share? PM me it or write it in a profile comment.

That's all I can really think of at the moment. If you want to know more about me, just send me a PM. I always love new conversations. smilies/icon_3nodding.gif

Hello
My names Jisu and I just wanted to I guess just say hello XD
I've noticed you around gaia a lot, mostly the LD and you just seemed like an interesting person to talk to and be friends with.
I understand I might sound a little odd so sorry if I come off as that.
But I was just hoping by adding you and commenting that we could become somewhat acquaintances. cool
Anyways, so just wanted to drop a comment and say hello!

I felt bad about leaving mid-conversation, especially since your situation is so serious.

Your husband is being an a**. He is not overcoming his addiction and being a family man. I hate men like him. My father doesn't win any medals for father of the year, but he does provide for my family and makes sure that neither my mother or I have to work.

It sucks that your family lives thousands of miles away otherwise I would have recommended you moving in with them with your daughter until he cleans up his act.

BT, I get the feeling you're seriously undermining the severity of his addiction as well as the situation of your marriage in general. Marriage is a sacred act, a union, a coming together of two people who are willing to make whatever compromise necessary just to spend the rest of their lives together. And someone isn't pulling their weight in the relationship.

Marriage counseling won't do s**t, I feel like only you or him can create change in this situation. Obviously quitting or decreasing the hours hasn't worked. Do you have any close friends, BT? Some that you could stay with for a few days or maybe a few weeks? I don't think your husband understands the full effects of his behavior on the family. He needs someone to splash cold water on his face.

That's what I'd. Save up some money, get a job if you have to. Just enough money to survive for at least a month or two. Then get your belongings ready, go to him while he's likely playing WoW, and tell him you're leaving until he DESTROYS his WoW account/disc or whatever. Ultimatum. See what happens, and then leave if you need to. If he truly loves and cares about you and your child, he'll come back.

What you're dealing with here is essentially a 28 year old (or whatever age) man-child. You have to show him you mean business and you need to stop being so ******** passive. It's your life BT, you're holding the axe here.

All of that is my advice, you can follow all of it or you can follow none of it. Makes no difference to me, but I hope you do something because his behavior is putting a strain (however noticeable) on your marriage as well as producing a negative effect on the mental development of your daughter. Good luck.

I just wanted to say that it was nice seeing you in the LD. I remember when you were an LDR and I was (sorta, just less popular) on my old account. I don't know how to describe it, but it was just nice seeing a username that sounded vaguely familiar at first and then two seconds later... bam! I remembered. :3

I hope you are doing well, as well as your family and such. n_n

Hey CeCe I feel like the biggest a*****e ever. Because I was totally lying in my last thread. sad I'M SO SORRY but I really appreciated what you said, it was so sweet. Though at the same time I still feel like a b***h of course. You know, in actuality I don't consider myself all that much of a great person, it's really something new, I mean I never liked myself until recently. But yeah, I'm not transgendered. Don't tell until I decide to announce it! xox love fam.

Well, I saw you when I was browsing through some forums, and I just wanted to say that I love your avi. (:

Thanks for the great advice on my problem forum. smile it really put things in perspective and I love to think I may grow back with my friends somewhere down the road while making new ones, rather than simply dropping them!
