The first thing I want to do is make note of three awesome people:
These ladies are each highly intelligent and amazing. I've known them over Gaia for years. They're the kind of people you want to know just so you can tell people that you know them. I'm far from worthy of their praise. I love them all.
As for myself... There isn't much to say. I'm honest to the point of brutality. I'm 32 and I've never been to college. I've worked as a Janitor, a Housekeeper, a Market Researcher, a Signing/Visual associate at Sears, and currently as a night clerk for a hotel. STAY IN SCHOOL AND GET A DEGREE! Ahem... I'm nice, mostly out of courtesy, and I have a desire to keep terrible drama out of my own life; although, I've helped a number of people deal with the drama in theirs.
I've been a member of Gaia Online for about 11 years now. I remember back to the old days, before zOMG!, before Gaia Cash, before Gaia sold-out to mainstream media outlets and was still primarily about Anime, Manga, and where being a misfit was normal and normal was weird. I pushed the Million Page Thread with a myriad of people from page ninety-thousand-something to page 120-thousand-something. It was the MPT that kept me away from the Elitist community who felt that the value of their avatar items was a direct reflection of their value as people. While not all of that community were people of questionable character, they did comprise a large portion. That said, I don't have much in the way of highly valuable items, and that's just fine by me.
I love dogs. I've learned to like cats a little. I'm open-minded about music, and I'll watch just about any movie out there. I'm not into organized religion as I believe that self-affirmation of belief should be enough for people, and that a need or desire for affirmation from others is just silly. I also have an interest in Anime and Manga like GitS, CHOBITS, Bubblegum Crisis, Appleseed, Psychonauts, Robotech/Macross, Biomega, and others.
Anyway, I could say more about me, but if anyone is reading this I've decided to take mercy on you. Thanks for stopping by. Take care of yourself. 3nodding
