Last Monday, I didn’t write my normal Monday post. I felt bad and I wanted to write, but I didn’t feel like venting or sharing some of my personal issues.
However, I don’t want to skip my post again, so I’m going to share a bit.
If you have read my last original post My Adventures on Discord , you would know that I have found a very fun and interactive online community.
Due to my illness, I am often at home. Therefore, nowadays, I usually go on discord daily.
I really enjoy karaoke-ing and chatting with different translators and editors from all over the world. Sometimes, on voice chat, people would play guitar or piano, and a bunch of us would mute ourselves and listen. It’s like attending a concert, except you can only listen.
A few days ago, Options was playing the piano. Deceptioning made a comment.
Deceptioning: Your girlfriend will be a lucky woman (due to the fast fingers? Haha)
A bunch of people: Options is a girl!
Deceptioning: Oh…lucky guy then?
Options: Well, I do have my options (get it? Her name is Options, so she has her options! AHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAAHA *insert the laughing crying face emoticon*)
*By the way, this was through text and we didn’t actually hear Option speak, so most of us had no idea she was a female.
But on a serious note, discord also made me learn a few things about myself and people.
If someone really wants to talk to you, he/she will make the effort to talk to you even if there are so many barriers (ex. they’re busy, different time zones, different work schedules, etc).
