Hey there! I'm Rachael.I joined Gaia in 2006
and I've been on this account since 2007. I've returned to Gaia in 2020 after a few years' hiatus, and it's really good to be back!
I'm feeling a bit lost, though! I'd like to make some new friends on here and find out about what I've missed and what's new. I'd also like to find some people to play zOMG! with, so I can work on my kill badges and actually finish the storyline. I'm hoping to give my avi a modern makeover, too, and maybe upgrade my profile to something customized and cool.
If you want to play zOMG! or chat, drop me a line any time—I particularly like profile comments! I don't accept random friend requests; I like to get to know people first 😊
I should note that I have zero issues with blocking people who are rude—to me, to others, or to Gaia staff. I'm here to have a good time, so I don't put up with bad behavior. I also believe in being kind to others—or at the very least, simply decent. The fact that Gaia is an online space and not a physical one doesn't suddenly grant someone the right to be a jerk or release their aggressions on others. Remember the golden rule: treat others as you would want to be treated. If you can't do that, then you aren't someone I want to interact with.
