AboutGreetings from one corner of cyberspace to another, I am Tempest Lorelay and it seems you have come across my profile. Since you are here, I might as well tell you a little about the person behind the pixels.
To Start, I've been a member of Gaia since July 21st 2006. For the first year or so of my membership, I really did not have the time to get on as much, since I was focused on school. In 2008 I came off my hiatus and been here ever since. I have modded threads, and owned a Guild. I'm currently a 9.0 in ZOMG, and working on badges. I usually hang out in the Gaia Aquarium and Music forums. I also roam towns, from time to time. I love having quests and have tackled many in the past. I don't mind random friends requests or random PM's and comments. Even though, I'm horrible at keeping track of PMs and profile comments. I have no excuse. I'm just bad at it. Please don't be insulted if I take awhile to reply. I catch up eventually. I love to collect items; 98% of all items I buy or been donated to me will never be sold. Finally, my username is part Shakespeare. Tempest meaning Storm and Lorelay is the name of a famous siren from German Folklore.
How did I find Gaia Online? A friend linked me to it. I'm actually a veteran Gaia user, I was here before they added all the sparkles. I remember when Monthly Collectibles were original and cool. They were only 35k or even 135k. I remember Pink Links, Wooden Trunks, and Blue/Pink Giftboxes and when they were frequent to get. When events were fun and painless and you had to work to make gold. I remember when shops had real backgrounds. Ian was blond and Rufus slept in his shop. When Ruby and Peyo shared a screen. Rina and Rock Puppy were just a characters that welcomed you. Hacking was rare and donations really ment something.
Why I'm on Gaia: Looking for a new diversion during a crazy time, I stumbled on Gaia and immediately when I started meeting the people, I was hooked. Gaia provides me with some much needed socialization and stress relief.
While on Gaia: I'm all over the place. I started out in the Anime, wandered over to Charity, hung out in the Q&F now and then, roamed some guilds from time to time. I finally ended up calling the Music home, still sneaking out to hop into the GCD, do a little roleplaying in Barton, and checking out other people's profiles.
Most loved thing to do on Gaia: I love to dress up my avatar! It's a favorite past-time of mine. I think I change my avatar at least two or three times a day!

Gaia Moments of "Why the Hell did I do that?"
~ Buying over 1,000 flowers for no reason and then couldn't really sell them.
~ Falling for the "Winter Rose Scam" and selling one of my Uncanny Form's.
~ Selling the MC Lusty Scandal for 15K and then 6 months later its worth over 300K
What I hate about Gaia: The n00bs, people who take and don't say thank you, people that beg, cluttered avatars, scamming contest, rude people, prejudice members here, the "gangsta" gaians, suck-up rich gaians, and KiKi Kitty Plushie
When Gaia has made me upset:
☑ Reported for Scamming. Unfairly. All because I had a contest for a TekTek and the Winner didn't claim her prize. She reported me for scamming. I got so angry about this, I went on a Hiatus for over a year.
☑ Brought a Aquarium Starfish in the MP. Went to put it in my tank and the Starfish needed to be Flushed right then and there! Reported and got no reply. Thanks, Gaia Mods... I want my 60K back.
☑ Voted in the Cats vs. Dogs poll and didn't get the achievement.
☑ I miss the chance to get the 2006 Anniversary Sash and still are unable to get it.
A note about my wish list: Yes, I have a crap-load of items on there. The wish list is a reminder for me to get items eventually. Now, the one's I am questing are the one's I mostly want, but know I am going to have a tough time to get. However, My wishlist is always up to date and updated constantly. Adding items and removing items I've bought over time.
I don't know who is reading this message right now. I don't know if it's a friend or someone who randomly wandered into my profile. Either way, thank you for reading through my thoughts, and I wish you a wonderful experience on Gaia.
