About

I joined Gaia in June 2010 at the suggestion of some friends. I had originally thought that the site revolved around zOMG and so I quickly delved into it, trying to go through the different areas and raise my levels as quickly as possible.

Then a friend pointed out that I was completely missing the point of zOMG...it's an MMORPG, which means that it has no definite end (and therefore cannot be "beaten") and it requires working together with others to successfully complete. I have never played an MMORPG before and so once I found out what it entails, I was somewhat hesitant to continue, since I always thought working together with others in a game was cheating, like I was asking for help on something I should be able to do myself.

I was apparently also missing the point of Gaia in general...it's not just about zOMG, it's a large online community where people can hang out and have fun. And that made me even more hesitant to participate, since this wasn't what I agreed to when I joined. To be frank, I'm socially inept and couldn't carry on a normal conversation with someone if my life depended on it. And that's why my friends are insisting I stay here on Gaia...so I can learn to communicate with people I don't know, and especially on a personal level. That said, if you want to get to know me better, feel free to send me a personal message.

Hey there!
Yes, it has been quite awhile since we last spoke, it's nice to see you're still around here on Gaia.
goodness thou, GHZA4 has been gone for a few years now, I was actually just thinking about that the other day, lol.

Not much going on. I've been working on losing weight, which is going pretty well. I've lost 30 pounds total, with about 15 in the last two months. I'm also actively looking for a new job, or a different position in my current workplace. I'm trying to get a morning shift. I hate closing. I have no life. Well, how was your Valentine's Day?
