Hello, World! I'm orekko
), capitalization not required. It's not my real name, but a pseudonym. My real name isn't really interesting, as it's only five letters. I'm a straight guy in a lesbian's body, but I don't mind being referred to or perceived with any terminology. I recently graduated from high school in June of 2023, and I'm currently studying for my license. Unfortunately, I'm unable to show my face due to cameras not detecting it, but my avatar emulates what I look like close enough. My shoulders are broader in real life, though.
My knowledge of Gaia Online goes back to 2015, but I didn't start playing officially until 2020. My like for MMOs and dress-up/avatar websites comes from playing Fantage back in 2010. Fantage closed down in 2018, though, so I took the time to learn about other MMOs and forum-based websites. I can't believe how long it took me to come to Gaia Online—it has everything I want in an avatar-oriented world!
I'm not introverted, more so reclusive in nature. My minimal presence isn't a conscious decision; I just don't talk if I have nothing to add in a conversation. I avoid small talk and I become disengaged in long-running colloquy. On the other hand, I'm always interested in different perspectives and viewpoints about morality, religion, ethics and more! Even topics like the weather I'm willing to partake in as long as there's a point.
English is my native language, and I can converse a little in Spanish. I know tidbits of other languages such as Japanese, Chinese, French, German, etc. but not at any actual level or capability in conversation. I'm trying to improve my vernacular every day, so I may avoid talking colloquial. My tone may sound off, or I may jumble words. If you need me to explain something I said, don't be afraid to ask!
