I've decided to finally leave Gaia. I created this account back in 2006, when I was a teen, and have seen friends come and go on here. I've seen items from 2003 when they were barely a million gold, I've seen the marketplace before the taxing, I've seen how alive towns used to be before all the mini games came around. I remember struggling to make just 1k in gold to buy my avatar better clothes (at the time, being dressed only in the given peasant clothes). Over time, I amassed a small fortune of gold on here. Not a lot, compared to some, but enough to buy most of the new items I wanted. However, with the passage of time, I realized Gaia, the site I used to spend every waking moment of my summers during high school on, was no longer my scene. I've moved on, so I've been giving away my items to those seeking them. I always told myself that, if I did leave Gaia, I wanted to make someone's day and give them something they've been wanting, just as others have done for me in the past. It's been a fun run Gaia, but I'm off to enjoy other pastures.
