Hi. I'm Nico511. But you can call me Nico, since that's my real life nickname. Not that it matters, of course.
A few days ago, I was lying around so I started thinking about Whyville.
First of all, I've been on Whyville for 2 1/2 years. Pretty long, I guess. I played for a few months when I first joined, but I was driven away by the bullies. I came back around last November, I think? Maybe October. I actually quite enjoy this little community on the website we call, "Whyville", although the only place I go to is the BBS.
Anyways, back to the story. So I was lying there, and I was just . . . thinking. Pretty common for me; thoughts are always buzzing around in my head. But this was a long, good thought I was having.
Why do I still play Whyville?
This was a pretty random thought, but it was a remarkable one considering that on Whyville, there's nothing special about me.
Here are the things I started considering:
I have about 125,000 clams, I think? Pretty poor, I guess. I can't really afford the 100k hairs sold every day on the BBS. I don't have any interest anyways. I don't care about face parts on Whyville. I usually throw on some in-stocks and I'm good. I don't get picked on because of my avatar . . . most of the time.
I never, ever go into chatrooms. I actually dislike them. The few active people on Whyville mostly hang out at Beach South, the Woods, and the Sun Roof. I didn't really like it there; I felt left out and nobody would talk to me. I only go to chatrooms for parties nowadays. The BBS is basically the only place I hang out.
I don't have any friends. Shocker, right? I am being completely honest here. I have no friends on Whyville. Not one. I've never really been unhappy about it. It would be nice to have a friend, I guess. Most of the kids on here my age are a little bit immature and not my . . ."type". People say I am very serious and mature and act like a senior in high school or sometimes even an adult.
But I usually just smile. I mean, would a girl that still has stuffed animals and holds her dad's hand actually . . . mature?
I mean, I guess I have some "friends" but they're more like people on the BBS that share the same likes and dislikes as me. Lots of people think the same as mean, but then again it's not like I actually talk to them.
Certainly by now you're thinking "Wow, what a loser! Why does she still go on here?!" but I really don't mind. I usually shrug things like that off.
I then had a rather dark thought. Do people actually like me? If I were to quit, would I just vanish away? Oh well. I don't really care.
