About me"Write something about yourself that you'd like to share with other Gaians" ? Yeah, right. Here's what I wanna share - I want to find a long-sleeved shirt to equip my avatar with it. It has to be red and black horizontal stripes, or AT LEAST black and white (although that's the worst case scenario). I want to get a shirt that looks like the one Matt from Death Note was wearing. I've been searching for it on Gaia, but couldn't find anything that's close enough to it. So, if you happen to find something similar, please PM me. It has to be long-sleeved, and with horizontal stripes. It doesn't have to be red and black (but it'd be great if it were). And that's all I wanna share. I'm not in the mood for confessions right now.
LOL, this paragraph has been here for quite a while. There's no such shirt on Gaia. I know that now.
OK, I'll add something more here, so the above paragraph is not the only thing in my "About me" section. Well, I could explain why I chose this username for starters. It was my first choice and I'm happy with it. Well, it pretty much describes who I am. I have a heart. And that heart is made of glass. (metaphorically speaking, of course) Since glass is an easily breakable material, I had it petrified, so it wouldn't break. Because I don't think I'd be able to patch it up again if it would. So, on the outside, it appears as if it's made of stone. But it's not. Deep inside, there's a core of glass. Safely hidden. So there. That's my story.
I removed most of the contest that used to be here, because it was seriously outdated.
March 8th 2008 - I was on the 31st place on the Overall Fishing Rankings! The first time I've noticed myself on such a list.
March 22nd 2008 - I started wearing Bachelor's cap and gown I earned playing Word Bump. However... each time I reach level 35, the timer gets so fast and the letters get so slow, that there's absolutely no way for me to get any Master's credits. I guess my computer and/or Internet connection is too slow. Why is it too slow? Because I'm poor and can't afford anything faster. So, I won't play Word Bump any more, because I don't need more Bachelor's credits piling up if I can't get any Master's credits. So, basically, I'm quitting my education, because I don't have enough money. How sad... And I'm sure I'd be capable of getting a Master's and maybe even a Doctor's degree.
The sad thing is - it's been three years since I wrote this, and my Internet connection is still not any better.
I just want to let you all know that I finished on the 24th place in the Overall Fishing Rankings for March 2008. I'm so proud of myself. ^_^
May 1st - I've reached 8th place on the Overall list. This is the highest I've ever been and probably the highest I'll ever be. Of course, the only reason I was able to achieve it is that it's the beginning of the month, so not many people have earned a lot of points. They still haven't displayed the winners for April. I expect to be on that list too. I just don't know which place.
OK, I've just checked and I placed 14th on the Overall list for April. Not bad, but not great either. Oh, well, it's probably the highest I can go without sacrificing school and private life.
The latest update (this is starting to look like a journal, but there's no way that I'll start keeping one now, so I'll put here everything important that happens), my newest friend redshiftnova has given me a May 2008 Thank you letter! I was so surprised when that happened, because I haven't even asked for it or anything. That is, by far, the nicest thing anyone's ever done for me on this site. So, she deserves a permanent place in my profile and a top 5 spot on my friends list. Thank you, redshiftnova! heart biggrin
Last month, I reached the 8th place on the Overall list for a brief period of time. But today (June 1st), I reached the SECOND place on the Overall list!!! Of course, I have no illusions about it. I know it won't last long. But I want everyone who ever visits this profile to know, that Petrified Heart of Glass has once been the second best fisherman in the ENTIRE GAIA! Yes. That's me. heart heart heart (Oh, and I should also mention that, during that brief time, I was 31st on the Bass'ken list and 29th on the Gambino list. That was my first time to ever make it there. I'm not there anymore, of course.)
I checked, and I'm 31st on the Overall list for May. Not that it matters much, because I wasn't really trying, but it's certainly nice to see your name up there once again.
One more thing: redshiftnova is the BEST, KINDEST, MOST LOVABLE, MOST GENEROUS and overall the GREATEST person I have ever met here on Gaia. And, I'm absolutely sure she's better than most people I know in real life, too.
July 2nd, 2008 - Somebody tried to hack my account. It was the first hacking attempt since I joined Gaia. I hope it will also be the last.
I have ended up 10th on the Overall list for June 2008! Yay! I'm so happy right now! heart heart heart heart heart heart heart heart heart heart
And... if you ever meet redshiftnova... in towns, in a fishing room, in one of the forums... bow down to her. OK, not really, because it would be a blasphemy (if you're religious), it would probably freak her out, and besides, you can't really do that with Gaia avatars. But if you do meet her, treasure that moment in your memory for all eternity, because you will have met one of the: (here I go again - I know I'm not inventive, but, after all, English is not my native language) BEST, KINDEST, MOST LOVABLE, MOST GENEROUS and GREATEST people in the entire world! heart
