AboutI decided I'd write this...it's kind of long--yeah.
My name is Tommy but you may call me Ricky. I am 21 Years old, and I originally joined gaia back in 2003. I have left many times, many usernames lost in the sea of endless email adresses. Yet I still find myself back at the login page time and time again.
- Things you should know about me:
- I am what you would call a Savant, I do everything to perfection. If it's anything less, then it is nothing but wasted effort.
- I am addicted to video games. I totally immerse myself in those virtual worlds, and it becomes my alter ego--my persona.
- I'm the stereotypical gamer who stays up all night juicing with red bulls and five hour energy shots just to satisfy this broken ego of mine, where I feel inadequate offline--invalid, therefore I must be the best at everything online--perfect.
Gonna try to break it before new year's, thats when my work picks back up, unfortunately. However, If for whatever reason I do fail, I probably will leave anyway...
I am a power fisher, I'm absolutely terribad at filtering in durem (or rather, I dont have the patience for it), so I expect to catch very very many small fish and junk. Which would also in turn reflect on my fish caught to lake score ratio. But I'm okay with that, I'm just here to set the bar so high, it wont ever be broken.
I have spent years working up to this moment in my fishing career, worked too hard learning the secrets of fishing, and I won't give up this opportunity to stake my name (though, somewhat unknown as it is) among the legends.You are free to try to challenge me, but your defeat is already written in the chronicles of time. Call me what you will, be it "guy with no life/too much time on his hands" or whatever, it matters not to me.
Now, I'm kind of bad at math, but if my calculations are correct. I should hit 160-ish buckets a day, at roughly eighteen or twenty hours per day., which should be plenty to beat the record.
My final legacy, my final--quest shall be seen to fruition.
And Now, I'll write a little something about my experiences on Gaia.
I witnessed the birth of something truly magical back in 2003. It is almost pathetic to call the go-gaia days one of the best times of my life, but it was. Everything was just so awesome back then, that was when I met some of the most amazing people. People who, helped me get over my social Issues, and people who taught me that it's doesnt matter if other people dont like the way you look or act, all that matters is how you see yourself. Those were some of the most influential people in my life, and I'll never forget them, even though they've long gone from gaia.
I remember those humble donation days on gaia, where that measly two dollars and fifty cents went a long way, and where donations were truly donations to keep the servers up. Gaia has changed since then, donations to the site, if i could even call them that, have become nothing but empty husks of what they once were--what they stood for has been damned and sacrificed, all in the name of capitalism. I stopped donating to the site when gcash came out, and since it came out, Gaia has never been the same to me. The marketplace, has been defiled by vendors and exchangers who know nothing of sentimental value, the only value they know of is monetary.
I grew up on gaia, and I don't think people realize just how awesome it is to be able to say that. I went from that frightened little kid, always locked away in his room away from society--away from life, to the confident, secure adult I am today, and I have gaia to thank for that.
Just like everything in life, it all must come to an end eventually, it is only a matter of time. And just as I saw Gaia rise to glory, I have also seens it's slow, but steady fall--I see it everyday, with each passing cash shop announcement. Gaia isn't what it used to be anymore, it's not as fun as it was. The mystery--the magic of it has faded, and it is nothing but an empty shell--a shadow of its former glory. And on the day I do complete my quest, I too shall fade, and I shall sleep alongside my fellow gaians, long gone away. The memories i've had here, shall live on in my heart. And I shall always cherish the time i've spent here, in this magical place called gaia online.
You will never know how much I love you Gaia.
