My name is Despoena, and I've been on Gaia since June of 2004. I was 16 when I joined, and now I'm 22 and I feel really, really old.
As you may have noticed, my username is green. That means I'm a moderator! I am currently a global moderator, meaning I handle abuse and harassment cases as well as other stuff : D NOT ANYMORE
I'm an illustration and design major at the Art Institute of Atlanta, meaning I currently live in Georgia. It's fairly hot here. As my major would suggest, I enjoy art, comics, illustrations, anything drawn! I also love my music, my favorite musicians currently being The Residents and Mirah.
I get a few questions about my username. It's pronounced "Des-poh-ee-na", and it comes from a small story in greek mythology. Click here for the story!
Moderation: I'm a mod in many places! You might see me around. STILL NOT ANYMORE
Do not, I repeat, DO NOT send me your username/password. Moderators, Admins, Staff, or even other users should not ask for your password. Do not give it to me. Do not give it to another moderator. Do not give it to ANYONE. You'll be upset.
Teh: Desu is like that fake cute girl duck to lure the male duck into being shot.
