Who are you people ? Really I want to know ...

Howdy and thanks for dropping by my little thread. I ,as of late, have been wondering just who is playing Glitch these days (yeah I do weird things like that :). The old primary demographic of stay at home moms and retired persons seems to be shifting. I meet people of all ages and walks of life in Glitch, it's got that universal appeal thing going for it. Don't get me wrong I love stay at home moms and retired folk I just wanna know who the heck is here so I would really appreciate it if you could tell me a little about yourself. No need to write your life story or anything, not that that wouldn't be interesting, but just a few things like your sex, general age, social status, and what you do to fill your days when you aren't playing Glitch. Hey who knows you might even be weird like me and find this interesting :) In the very least you get entered in a random drawing to win 10 cubimal boxes just for taking the time to help me out. 

 I'll get the ball rolling.

Female , Age 40's , Not married, Self employed computer geek, nutritionist and keeper of other peoples stuff (aka caretaker)

  • Well hello! Female, not married, 22 and a freelance illustrator who just got her BFA. I think it's been a little over a year of playing Glitch? and I guess I spend a lot of time searching for jobs and checking out grad schools

  • Howdy ho' partner~. Female, 19,and a-- currently part time-- student. Unemployed, but mostly because I have some slight physical and mental disabilities and am not strong enough to hold a job. Unmarried. Living with my mother. (Seriously, kids who move out as soon as they turn 18 are really silly! I can't imagine supporting myself yet.)

    I've been playing since... last month, but I'm on a lot and it's felt like longer. My free time is divided between Glitch, drawing, and baking.

  • Female, 20 going on 21. Part-time student. Unemployed, though not for lack of trying. Unmarried and still living with my family.

    I've been playing for... goodness, I haven't really kept track. I feel like it's been longer than a month, but it probably hasn't. I spend most of my time on schoolwork, but when I'm not writing essays, I'm playing video games and pestering my friends.

  • Female, 20, Student! If i'm not playing Glitch then I'm usually slaving away on my homework which is a combination of animation, sequential art, and art history or reading. Currently living at home with my siblings, mom, and 3 kooky cats. I've been playing a little over a year now :D

  • Female, 35, work from home transcribing and captioning video and audio.  It's my dream job, actually, because I get to be the proverbial fly on the wall.  I have a bachelor's degree in art history (and luckily did not find Glitch until after I finished that degree in June 2010, or else I would have had a big problem).  Interested in folklore, history of art (my main focus has been the intersection/overlap of Renaissance and Baroque art in southern Europe, mainly Italy), world religions (my minor).  Live in Seattle with my guy of 8 years, our dog Fidget, and our elderly cat Alabama.

    I used to play a lot more (A LOT more - 12-hour sessions were frequent) but it got kinda grindy for me so I took a break.  This was compounded by starting my business in April and just didn't have time to come to Ur.  I'm just now coming back to discover all the new things that have appeared since I last played, especially since I have bestowed upon myself four days off of work after not taking a weekend (and hardly even a day off) since getting things going.

    I love Glitch.  Sadly my partner doesn't, probably 'cause there's no raiding.  I have a few who have joined, though.

  • Well, I was born 10 years ago in Groddle Forest. It was on a Fabday, 14th of Candy. The Ur World was expanding to Alakol, Bortola and Kajuu, but I fell in love with the firebogs! Then I survived the Reset Day, a kind of apocalypse that made us rebuild all our lifes from zero. We didn't have much butterflies and those were hard days.

    My favorite giants are Grendaline, Friendly, Pot, Tii, Lem... ok, I love them all and I believe the rook is the 12th giant and the Trisor in hell is the 13th giant. But those theories are not confirmed!

    I'm also a greeter and this is a volunteer job I really enjoy to do. This and the re-map of Ur for GS (waiting for all of those new regions to be updated). I also study this game in a very serious way, maybe it's because I'm a kind of advertiser, events planner, designer, marketeer irl. What else can I say? Brazilian, 29 years, married, believes in anything anyone can say (acreditando = believing).

    I live in a Jellisacs Serious Route (call me to join it!) and I have a tower that sells everything for 1K only :) I really want to tell you guys about my glitchy life! hahahaha! One of my favorite things in this game is wardrobe outfits, rook attacks, ancestral lands and fireflies.

    Sorry if I'm a bit off this thread

  • Female 38, started playing after being invited by my sister who knew I needed something to keep me occupied during the day.  Off with long-term medical problem but final back surgery is now on the way!!!!! So pretty soon I won't be on glitch at all.  I think Glitch for me has kind of turned into a job (a substitute one) until I can get back out and earn the real currants : )

  • Female, 45, married with a daughter.  Besides my full time job as a mother, wife, maid, lawn care professional, decorator, tutor, dog walker, nurse, chef, and all those other fun "SAHM" things...I play Glitch.  Not as much as I would like these days but enough to keep me in the loop.  I started way back when in Alpha.

But I do like doing things outside like walking or biking. ^^

  • I am Me and also Brib Annie.  It's a Fact that I have been Me since day one despite any denial by others who may claim to be Me.  When I began is a mystery (not telling, so there!) but I will say that my Mother stopped aging at age 29 and I have passed that mark just long ago to not remember.

    I have been using computers since 1980.  My first one was actually a portable that used 3.5 inch floppies and had two floppy drives so I did not have to change discs.  It was a rugged portable about the size of a small tool box.  I used it in the Field as an Archaeologist.  I majored in Sociology in college with a concentration in Anthropology.  Archaeology is NOT romantic except in memory.  It was actually very hard physical and mental labor and I am glad it is over with but the memories are good.

    After Archaeology, I worked for the National Weather Service through a sub-contractor.  For 14 years I worked the graveyard shift in the Tower of my local airport.  That was easy and I have some good memories of that too.  I was replaced by the Automated Weather equipment.  I have been "retired" ever since.

    Genealogy is my main hobby after gaming.  It is amazing what you can learn about your family!  If you haven't tried it, I recommend it especially if you love history.  I also like arts and crafts and have tried many thread crafts including knitting, crochet, tatting, embroidery, weaving, etc.  These days my vision is not so good and I have a problem with my hands so I sedom do crafts and miss it terribly.  Genealogy and Glitch keep me busy.

  • Hehe, love acreditano's post as well.

    For myself, I'm 29 for a couple more months, female and work in the acquisitions part of a university library. I have recently applied for a similar job with the public library system because it pays a lot more per year. Hopefully I'll find out this week whether I got it or not.

    In my off time, I love playing games of all types and go through phases of what I play the most. Glitch is one of those. I usually don't stay away from it too long.

    I've been thinking about going back for another bachelor's degree in game design or something along those lines (the first is in psychology). I think being a part of TS or a company like TS would be my dream job.

  • Why not.

    Female, 19, student (undecided major), I am addicted to the Internet and lurk Global Chat all the time. I have 26 blogs that I read weekly plus one (Tom and Lorenzo at tomandlorenzo dot com, if you're curious, it's fashion and pop culture) that I check multiple times daily. I have Pinterest but no other social media, not even FB. I am super socially awkward, less so on the Internet/in writing. I live in Canada. Random fact about me: I write poems sometimes, but only sonnets. This is because I find them much easier to write due to the strict structure, and also because other people seem to think they're difficult. I'm kind of a wordsmith, actually. "Replete" means "full (of)", basically, but you probably already knew that.

    I love the community in this game and feel really great whenever I can contribute. I think (I mean, as far as I can tell) I've been playing since August 2011. I took a year-long hiatus right around the first Zilloween event, came back about a month ago and have been addicted. Incidentally, I found the game through StumbleUpon (which I no longer use because it makes me ragey).

    I've been playing since this time last year and I absolutely love it :) I love helping people, getting new achievements, mining, and cooking. I'm sure I'll love furnituremaking and all the newer skills once I learn them, since I took a few months of a break, and am now just getting back into it :)
