2008girl: More than just a lame username.
3rdFeb 13, 2011
- A year ago today I finished a game with my usual third place. To the untrained eye it may look like just another old Rookies with my typical placement and typical group of friends, but it's so much more than that. http://www.tengaged.com/game/12429
I joined the game with a premade of Robbie, Mahogany, and another good friend. Coincidentally, a bunch of now-ETNAL members were in the game as well. The person that I bonded with the most was relatively new to the site and had an extremely corny username. While I don't discriminate against n00bs with horrible names, I didn't have much hope for any type of relationship to build there. Then said person and I actually talked a bit (in a Rookies, I know that's almost unheard of these days) and I quickly realized that 2008girl was much more than just a shitty username. For one of the first times in my life I found someone that understood my ridiculous hip-hop, R&B, and cheesy movie references.
We ended up giving her a poor placement because at the time our alliance was concerned that she wasn't fully with us, all of us regretting it and feeling horrible as it happened. As always, she handled it with complete class. That's when I knew she was a keeper, and in the words of Ja Rule... "a down ass bitch." Since then she's become one of my best online friends, and less importantly, one of the most popular players on Tengaged. I know she's gotten tons of shit over her popularity (especially in Stars), but if anyone is deserving of so much praise, it's Jess. It's rare to find a person with the combination of GENUINE kindness, the ability to make it rain chicken, and undeniable swag -- especially on a cutthroat gaming site.
When I got out of the hospital for the second time in a year with complications from my diabetes, I arrived home to one of my first ever gifts on here. As corny and small as it seems, it legitimately brightened my day to be gifted by our future-Oprah. /endamericanidolesquesobstory. But in all seriousness, I treasure her friendship like whoa. She's always there to lend you her e-ear if you need someone to just vent to, she gives literally ANYONE the time of day, and she lets me live vicariously through her in Stars. In short, she's an amazing person and I felt the need to show her some appreciation on our "ETNAL anniversary."
Congratulations if you made it to this point, I appreciate it. If it seems like I'm being over-sentimental and corny at times, that's what I was aiming for... or maybe I'm just over-sentimental and corny. :| Comment with Jess love or anything else so that I can continue to live vicariously through her.
