I've been on Gaia for about five years, and while I've lost interest in the games and guilds I find this a valuable resource for the forum activity, and frequent the Artist Ally, just to see whats up. This is the only 'computer/gamer' thing I let myself get sucked into, as I prefer being out doors in the fresh air. I like changing my avatar frequently and enjoy the many different comments I get because of it. I detest people who use the internet as their own little soap opera and those who give them attention for their misguided behavior.
I'm currently working on becoming an MA. I've been studying two years college Japanese, and if you so feel you are more than welcome to chat with me. (But forgive my awful kanji skills...)
I also enjoy the arts, and if you feel interested you can come check out my Deviant Art. I am working on a lot of skills so I can start commissioning, as you might have guessed if you ran into me in the Art Forums.
