I\'m Tannsy and this is my new account. Click here to find out what happened to my old one. (Journal entry is friends only)

I'm a twenty-six year old woman from the Ohio River Valley area. I make a living singing in bars, casinos, and at weddings, but I'm a slave to academia well educated and have a few degrees (a BSN, and a BA and MA). I love flowers, and my favorite flower of all time are sunflowers. That might be a little surprising considering my username is Tannsy (like tansy). I love sunflowers though because they're tall and majestic, and even in the hardest rain, the darkest night, and the fiercest wind they stand strong and bright. I like to think that's how I am. Plus, they're just so pretty! <3 I'm a natural enthusiast. I enjoy growing my own foods, I'm iffy about vaccinations, and if I ever have another child, my hope is to have him or her at home, granted there are no complications. My goal in life is to be a wife and mother, and one of the hardest things I've ever had to go through was giving birth to our stillborn son, Joshua Ryan, on May 30, 2007.

I met my husband, James, when I was thirteen and we've been together since August 8, 2003, over eleven years now! It's so hard to believe it's been that long. He was diagnosed with cancer in January 2009 after two years of aplastic anemia, and I have been his main caregiver. I couldn't imagine leaving him when he needed me most and when I needed him. He is what keeps me sane, and he's my saving grace. We eloped on November 5, 2013, after being engaged for several years and pushing our wedding back twice. Our spur of the moment wedding was an exact week before he received his bone marrow transplant! Getting married and him getting his transplant has given us hope and a future that at one point we never felt was possible. He is a Gaian as well. His username is Enfynity. You should totally check him out, he's a pretty cool guy, even if his profile is really outdated!

I used to use this account primarily for changing avatars (I never changed my main account) and for playing zOMG, but I never get to play very often. That stinks because I love the game! I enjoyed people I came across while playing, and zOMG helps keep my mind off of things. It's a fun way to waste time and make gold for my various quests. I also used zOMG for an imaging thing for a while and still do; sometimes I see the game differently. For a long time, I kept my avatar really ugly wearing peasant clothes, ugly green starter hair and evil red eyes. That avatar represented chemo and the animated in zOMG are leukemia blasts. Chemo isn't pretty and neither was that avi, but both still kill. I miss the game a lot, and everyone I used to play with! I will say though that the game seems to be completely black and white; there are great people and then there some awful people. I'm grateful for all the great people! n_n So glad that I haven't come across many awful!

I love volleyball, working out, theatre, RENT, and children. I want nothing more than to be a mommy to a healthy, living child.

I miss Elmo very, very much.

Where flowers bloom, so does hope.

Flowers are the only thing God forgot to put a soul into.

From Lanzer's Journal

Lanzer working from home!

Hello everyone! I'm just dropping by to let you all know that I'll be working at home at some new projects, and I won't be showing up at the Gaia Office for a while. What that means is that I had relieved myself of programming duties, and I won't be working on the new Tentacl project anymore, but at the same time my role as an admin and chief Gaian continues and I'll have more time on my hands as an admin. So if you're got questions or concerns, feel free to PM me, and I'll do my best to answer all of them.

12 years is a crazy amount of time. I went from being old to being an ancient relic. I remember starting from one project to going through half a dozen different different projects throughout the last few years. I've been tremendously busy, and ATA was the only outlet in which I could take a short breath and share how things were going, though after I joined the Tentacl team, I didn't even had time to do that. At the end of the 12th year, I've decided that I should relief myself of my duties to run any new projects and give myself a time off. Now I can actually have a breath of fresh air and be able to relax, and spend more time on Gaia as an admin.

I will continue to count on the Gaia team to keep being awesome, and we just hired a few new people so I can't wait to see what they can do. I will continue supporting Gaia, and I hope that all of you will be here supporting the team with me.smilies/icon_3nodding.gif
