I'm an elder by Gaia standards--I've been around since the early days before there even was a Marketplace and this ridiculous inflation. There have been bouts of hiatus, but I've managed to always come back to Gaia. Illustration, softball and ballroom dancing are a few of my hobbies. Since zOMG has been given the axe, I find myself with little to do here. I'll still linger around the Forums, but most of my socialization happened in game and I miss it.
On a side note: I don't take kindly to beggars. You will be ignored.
