Lessons of Jamaa #25: Animal Jam Obsession

Hi Everyone.
I have absolutely NO idea on what to post about today.
I don't know if a lot of you read Snowyclaw's Animal Jam Spirit, but the post today mentions how I'm going to be an author on there.
So, I might not always have a chance to post everyday if I post on there, or If I don't. Last year I had to wake up very early to post on Animal Jam Freedom, and I would spend more time in the morning on the computer taking care of Animal Jam related things then I'd prefer. Posts on Animal Jam Goldfish take a lot of time and thinking then you may assume they do. So, if you don't see a post on AJG, you could check AJS to see if I've posted about the Daily Item or not. I'm sorry, I'll try to get some posts ready in advance too, yet I still have a few weeks until school.
This leads me into my next topic..

Animal Jam Obsession. A lot of people have it, and play all day long. There are two types of jamming, Jamming for the fun of it because you're bored, or Jamming because your addicted and you have to do it all day long because you don't want to do other things. From around February 2012 - June 2012 I was pretty addicted to Animal Jam, like bad. I didn't want to do other stuff, and it got in the way of my studying (Which yes, sadly affected my grades) and doing other stuff that I should really take care of. 

I mean really, the only good thing about spending all day on Animal Jam is that it gives a lot of time for trading, but if you don't have a lot of stuff to trade, I don't know what to say. I don't want to say that I've spent my whole vacation on the computer, do you? I currently don't know where I stand. I don't know if I'm addicted, or just playing because I have nothing else going on. We'll see where that stands when school starts, and you can tell me.

I once overheard a very wise comment in someones den. "I don't really care about rares, It's not like I can put them on my resume when I'm older" If you don't know what a resume is, it's a form you fill out about yourself, and all the good things you've done and the skills you have to apply for a certain job. Writing down, "I had 2 top hats and Non member bat wings on Animal Jam" won't really help you, now would it?
Didn't think so.

You may or may not observe, but 75% of what people jam for on AJ is for rares, if you have them or not, or obsess over them or not. A lot of the people who trade all day long, including yours truly ever once in awhile, it's obvious they only play AJ for rares. Others meet friends through rares. How? Well, people automatically judge others if they should be friends or not through rares, it's a stereotype. Even I do it a lot more then I'd like to admit. I don't usually buddy someone who doesn't have a lot of rares, because one, my buddy list is extremely full and two, because I'm human, and judging like that is just what we do. A lot of people trade now and then, even if they're not a big collector. Rares are a conversation starter, something to talk about.

Now, don't get the wrong message from that last paragraph, I was proving a point that rares are what most people play AJ for.  Which is a big problem at AJHQ. I am almost positive they would remove rares in a heartbeat if they had the opportunity, but they can't. They would lose a lot of money, and jammers. A lot of jammers become member so they can wear they cool items. Imagine on Thursday's update, a HUGE catalog comes out, and every single item ever sold would be in there. *Poof* No rares anymore. *Poof* Half of AJ's population quits. I don't know if it's possible to grasp our tiny minds around, because most of us are so fed up in trading (if you think you are or not) It's hard to imagine that. AJHQ would lose a lot, and rares are already out of control and they're trying to manage them by making Rare Item Mondays and releasing them every now and then. (Usually in months there are no holidays.) 

Whoa, this article got off topic. It's really hard to convince you what I'm trying to make a point out of, but trust me, at some point you'll wake up one day, log onto to AJ and be like, *Pop* OH, NOW I GET WHAT THAT CRAZY GOLDFISHYPUPPY MEANT! Trust me, It'll happen. Do you really want to spend your childhood preteenhood (is that a word? it should be) on the computer? Some of us I know hide our AJ world from our friends, including myself and snowyclaw. That's not really good. It means it's something were embarrassed of, and we can't admit it. Yet I remember in one of Snowy's Jamaasian Movement posts, it mentioned how Animal Jam is an escape. Yes, an escape. A place to live a new life, a different world. It can be a good escape or a bad escape. If Animal Jam makes you happy, go for it, go play Animal Jam! (In moderation, of course.) But if it doesn't, then why play? Most times a lot of people quit, or at least say they are quitting because of drama. They might say it's because of school, or they got scammed, but trust me, it's drama. 

Drama isn't all bad, don't get me wrong. A little bit is good. Why? Because if you don't have drama  when you're young, and you grow up thinking the whole world is perfect, trust me, you'll have a wake up call and be in tears. You may think drama is just gossip about relationships, rumors, he-did-this, she-did-that, but no. As dictionary.com states it, "any situation or series of events having vivid, emotional,conflicting, or striking interest or results:" 
See? So pretty much anything that causes you stress or a lot of TYPING IN CAPS LOCK WITH EXCLAMATION POINTS!!! On Animal Jam, is stress. Been there, done that. Back to what I was saying, if Animal Jam isn't a sweet escape (Side note - Love that song by Gwen Stefani) Then why play? Remember that post a few weeks back? It was called "I'm sorry, friends" Yeah, well, at that time I was going through a lot of drama. And I'm sorry to say, there really isn't a cure for this. I've tried a lot. And I mean a lot of different methods. I guess I suggest if you have that one friend that just NEEDS drama in their life, delete them, and be like, "I'm done with you.". I've tried that one. It kinda worked. 

Yep, I'm off topic again. This post has turned out to be a lot longer then I intended. Oh well. Anywho, I've seen this commercial on Tv, It goes something like this: *Shows picture of toddler with a tv remote that has a dull look on his face* "(Blank young age to blank young age) Is the best learning time in your child's life, do you really want them to be watching Tv all the time when they could be learning, that's why we've provided you with... blah, blah blah." I actually took away something from that. Animal Jam isn't really teaching us stuff but Faster Typing. Props to AJHQ, they tried to teach us about Animals and Plants, but let's be honest, who really reads Journey Book facts? They need to be a little more serious about educating, yet people would ignore that, and go back to their usual life of trading. I bet even I would do that. Shame on myself.

I guess if I wanted you to take anything away from this post, is to use Animal jam in moderation and try other things. Sure, you may HATE (And that's a big word) walking the dogs, but why not do it? You're bored sitting on the bridge (Hopefully the unrare right one) in Jamaa, and none of your buddies are on, why not go walk them? It will be better exercise for you, and your dogs will be very happy. If you don't have dogs, why not a walk? Nothings wrong with that. Or something else. Whatever chores you have, or activity's you really should do, or even fun stuff. Your neighbor is playing basketball alone? Why not go shoot some hoops with him/her? I challenge you to do something today, when you're bored on Animal Jam, because we all are bored on AJ sometime. I will too. I will try to do something unique everyday instead of sobbing around Jamaa. And, I'll even throw in this. If you comment with whatever you've done today besides be on AJ, I'll send you mech angel wings. (Please be honest)

WOW. *Scrolls up to see post* I've wrote all this, yet had no clue what to post about?

    Best. Thing. Ever. Said.
    GOLDY I AGREE WITH YOU!! (Sorry for Caps lock)
    Probably, Most people Add me because of Rares, And today, Believe me, I'm getting a lot of Friends, and so, I was Fangirling (If ya know what I mean -Troll face-) Probably here are 2 Reasons.
    1. Rares
    2. Username
    Rares- Yeah I have Glove now, Lei (I owned it already before), Clover, Wreath, Heart Locket, And so on. So, I keep wearing it, People Add me, I delete them (I mean it, if they only want my rares) True. I delete and don't accept ALL buddy requests. 'Cause Even one Girl wanted my rares since I am nice to her BFF, Funbirthdaygirl, Wanted my Rares.

    Now, unto Names- Nah. Just Skip it, It's not part of the Post Anyway. LOL XD

      I love your Post.
      Amazing. Incredible. Awesome. Epic. AmazinglyIncrediblyAwesomlyEpic (Even a Word?)

      And Believe me, Since Class started, I've been Hanging out with my Classmates Lately, But in Summer, I've been in the Computer Playing AJ, I was still Thracey11-- A SUPER addict. I was Extremely Rare. Though Most did not want my Stuff :( Sad, I know sad, I cared about rares way before. No matter what, Me and SparklePink21 Always talk about rares, I gotta Admit that.

      And I have to go, This is all I could Say Bye!

  11. Hi Goldy, this was a good post! 100% accurate! I guess I am a tad addicted... :/ Wish I wasn't though... :( Anyway today I rushed round the garden with my cat and went shopping. Ummm...I think that's about it lol! Yeah, rares are a thing to chat about... But, no offence to anyone who this refers to, I notice that most of the time jammers who say "it's just a pixelated item! it DOESN'T MATTER! It's not REAL!" generally have tons of rares themselves.... :/ Anyway... the reason I like "rares" is because they LOOK BETTER! In beta everything was loads nicer, and not all modern and humany... :/ (Sorry I'm doing that face a lot!) Guess that's it... (Also doing ... a lot) Meep bye!

I could behind my mom's back, but that's not right, anyways how was 13 secrets?

  21. After I first joined Animal Jam, I admit I was 100% addicted. I just loved the amount of customization! I know, that reason may sound weird to you, but it's true! AJ was far different than the other web games I had previously played, and I could connect with my best friend on there ^^. She in fact, was the one who introduced me to the game.
    I used to come home from school each day and play Animal Jam until it got late. That, I am not proud of.
    A few weeks after joining, I went to the library because I needed to drop off some overdue books, and I found some cool new ones that I got instantly hooked on. Apparently, the author has written 50+ books and there are many more to come. 0-0 So, reading those took a healthy chunk out of my Animal Jam schedule and I learned other fun things I could do instead of be online.

    And today, I went shopping, read a book, went to my friend's house to hang out, and listened to The Beatles. I don't need the wings though, I have quite a few of them already and I rarely wear them. :T

  24. I understand your post, I really do. I was so addicted to animaljam when I first started. I played hours and hours each day until about a week and a half ago. I started cross country Practice, where I actually have HUMAN interaction. We run about 3-6 miles each practice, which is from 8:30-10:30. I'm starting to try and give myself a time limit, no more than 3 hours a day ( yes that seems like a lot) and spaced out so I don't fry my brain (lol)

  25. It's a sad thing, because most people don't understand how hard it is to quit, even in your heart you wanted to, you just can't. Rares holding you back? Probaly. All you can think, is "Omg, but it took me so long to get them, and I like them!" Giving away little-by-little can help that. And none of my friends know I play this 'kitty' game. Except one. Im glad she appreciates me for it. (She even started to play and liked it) YES, your righ no 13 year old shouldbe playing this game, but i do. I started 11. But years passed and I feel like a retard for making this account. Maybe think to yourself, "Do I regret making my account, or not?" I hate to say it, but I started out as a no-one. I saw all other rare jammers in jamaa. I'd try to talk to them, but they'd just leave when I said "hi" or "hello" Why? Of course, because I wasnt rare then! But, People wonder how I got rare? Well, one day I had a clover blaket, and someone WAY overtraded and ended up giving me a TAN TOP HAT. I didnt know this item was rare at the time, and traded it for a ninja mask. Then I traded that ninja mask for a nonmember glove (when rare) then about a month later I had 2 tops, wings, and a red glove (rare) and it went on. All because I made that account, I becaem who I am today, I regret playing animal jam.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I did some math when I was bored on aj once, it wasn't required heck it was even before school started. I don't play aj for rares, yeah sure sometimes I want rares, so I can trade them for items I actually want, but who cares? I play animal jam to decorate my den, to dress my pet, to think of new ideas that jammers can do themselves so they aren't begging ajhq to add new things jammaa! I like animal jam because I can express my creative abilities, to help my imagination grow, why you might ask. I want to be an author, a writer, a poet! And to be any of those things you need a huge imagination, fun expirences, and most importantly you need to be a good author, to publish a book. I practice my typing, my writing, and I even expand my vocabulary on aj. I've met jammers using words I've never heard of, and jammers have met me without a clue of what I was saying (given they were 8) But the thing is, animal jam is my creative outlet, and I only want rares, and epic items for my den, and animal not to be respected, but to be able to decorate my den, and dress my animal how I want. I admit I don't need rares for a cool den, but I do for how I want my den, because let's face it some rares are ugly as heck, but some are goregous, and just make for a better den/animal. I have made a non-member den and it's my second favorrite of my dens, it's stylish, small, and not crowded with junk, and rares. My username is peppywolf if you were wondering... Not that anyone would care, but I don't really care if you don't, so I guess that's all I have to say. P.S. Animal jam is not my only crative outlet I write, draw, and sometimes I just sit, and think, imagine, and brainstorm fun ideas for animal jam, decorating my room, and I think about my future. I admit I'm not the most creative person in the world, but I daydream far to often, I don't try to I just lose focus. I'm amazed that me of all people is in advanced english, and math, and is currently a straight A student...

  27. Today I woke up at 5:45 and went on a 4 mile hike up in the foothills. It was uphill for a lot of the way, which was difficult on some of the rough trails, but it was all worth it when we got to the top and saw that amazing view. We went with a group, so i got to meet some really awesome people. When i got back from the hike I went swimming with my best friend, and took tons of hilarious pictures with her underwater camera. In other words, I had a very tiring, but extremely fun day. (Oh, and I don't have any need or desire for a gift, I just wanted to let people know that I'm not somebody with no life outside of AJ)

  28. Inspired.wow.I think all you said is true and that Animal Jam sould have a rule that you can only be online for 15 or less mintunes a day.Ever since I got a silver glove and an arctic wolf EVERYONE (sorry for all caps.) wanted to be my friend. I think that when you give someone a friend request you have to type in why you want to be friends with them. I'm Rebekah Williams age 10 and I aprove this message.

    ReplyDelete
  29. This is Rebekah again. I'm going to spend my AJ time on making friends with people who would be good friends and that will allow me to tell (some) private information so we could be friends in real life. (This would be good because I only have 4 friends from school.) There will probly be a rule that you can't be on AJ if you're a teen. They are the people who say "Go to my den" and "Are you takin?" because some are losers who can't find dates at school.

  35. I had become addicted to animal jam....I confess.....the first 2 months I just played to be in like the clans and all but then....I wanted to look rich and have a spike. I started trading....and trading....and that's all I did at one point. I would come home from school and get on and try trading forever. I have a very rare account now (a claw, 2 spikes,3 clouds) all I played for any more was for trading. My parents noticed me becoming more grumpy and said I needed to lay off. I did .....for about a day. So then my parents only said 1 hour a day. That didn't last very long...I am ashamed. Finally one day my mom told me to go to sleep. I went back in my bed but then...I got out my laptop and checked my mail for mailtime.I was caught and they finally said no more animal jam.this is my 3 day without it and I am just now starting to realize how bad it was. I am ashamed but now happy that I finally opened my eyes. Lately I have taken up art as a new hobby and I have become very good at drawing wolves =D just word of the wise....balto careful with an.

  39. Over the winter it has been EXTREMELY cold where I live. So I have been WAAAAYYY over obsessed with animal jam. And although everyone in my class is not into games like this, I don't hide my true self! What's so bad about playing the computer? I have actually gotten a few more kids in my class to play it. Ok back to the topic, today I am asking my dad to set up the trampoline. I'm pretty sure that will cut my aj playing time down by at least 2 hours a day! I am on spring break, and my parents both work so I am home with my little sister all day until 5 pm. I always have thought, what else do I have to do? Now your post has made realize I have plenty of things to do.

  41. Hi Goldy! You have no idea who I am but I'm bats73, a girl who is slightly more honest than most people by nature (but is tragically good at lying when she chooses.) :)
    I think about what you posted ALL THE TIME!!! Every time I play AJ for more than 2 hours, I log off and ask myself, "WHAT did I waste my time doing?!" yeah, most of the time Animal Jam is uber-fun, and I want to play longer. But what else could I be doing?
    So today I spent almost 4 hours finishing my Summer homework, drew a picture of a colorful 2 headed dragon, tried to work on my not-so-brilliant cartwheel, juggled a soccer ball off my knees 7 times, lost tragically at dodge ball to my brother and his wacko friends, made 2 foul shots in a row backwards over my head, made myself some toast with raspberry jam, and looked up the spelling of raspberry.
    I know you will never read this, since sadly you have quit, but we all love you, and I would've been proud to be your friend.

  44. My friend lukey514 is ADDICTED to rares. He always asks me for rares, I say NO most of the time, he even scammed me once. I just HATE but yet feel sorry for the people who are addicted to rares. I have more important things to do: School, my friends and go outside! Unless you have a reason not to...... I did, a wasp nest in this case.

  45. Your right. Without rares, animal jam would be not be that popular. But I don't play because of the rares, I play because of 3 things:
    1: Friends, that are always there for me,
    2: Fun, even without rares, animal jam is a place where anyone can have fun,
    3: People. I go on animal jam knowing that someone needs help. And I would do anything to go to that person and help them. They are the people that I can truly have as friends.
    I believe in you goldy,

  49. I have played Club Penguin, helped with my Christmas tree,I have played football in my playroom ( I throw the ball and run to catch it lol technically I am throwing the ball to myself). So Animal Jam is not the only thing for you to do.

  50. Errr... What I did, Went too school, Did bad in P.E. (lol the most obvious thing, I suck at sports all expect for Dodgeball) I had a icecream when i got home, bounced on the trampoline, burned off calories, ran round the garden screaming madly like a insane person, Played with my pet doggy Victor, washed him, ate a snickers bar, Fed the parrots Tommy And Squirt, Ate dinner, then sat down for 5 minutes, breathed and had a rest. then i went on aj at about 7.30. took about 13 seconds too check for updates, went too ur blog, and made this! .3. So I deserve the mech wings, mm, yes? (Only if u want 2)

  51. Hi!
    I'm rockgirlland XD (That's my AJ user)
    And after I read ur post, I'm 100% sure I'm OVER-ADDICTED.
    I mean, I used to spend AT LEAST 5 hours on AJ!
    That was until I was forced to a 2 hour a day situation.
    I was upset and angry when I was informed about that..
    So now, I play tricks and do weird things just to extend my time on AJ.. even if it's just 2 mins.. SHAME ON ME!
    Well, that's all I have to say!
    Btw, I walked my cute little golden Labrador to he of the kind old (and I mean old..) ladies home and made her tea XD
    Rockgirlland~

  55. I am too addicted to animal jam I can't stop playing animal jam!

  56. I think rares are vital in order to keep the game interesting but realistically, all they are are pixelated, computerised items for animals. Seriously, would you want to waste hours of your time trying to gain a pixelated, non real item which has a tiny sign on it saying 'rare'? I apologise for sounding rude here although I definitely think rares are a waste of time. I appreciate they're fun to trade and that some players like rares

  59. Hey random people o,o I just wanted some advice... Lately I've been so bored on animal jam and I know that it's because I am getting to old. School just keeps getting harder and next year, I'm starting high school! I just really wanted to enjoy my last year with all my friends because we are all going to different high schools, but anyways... I want some advice because as much as I want to quit aj I really can't ! I think it's because I barely started making videos for YouTube and I have membership and I don't wanna quit and give all my stuff away. Mainly because I have played aj for 2 years and giving all the stuff I worked hard for really sucks. So can anyone give me any suggestions of what I can do on animal jam that will help me get out of boredom ?! Lol thanks

  60. Today I'm not allowed to use aj cause its christmas eve so I walked the dog up the tippy-top of the hill and ran as fast as i can back down (I got a pretty nasty knee scrape from that). After that I patched my jeans(hey it had to be done). Then I just had to log on for the daily prize. I was on for two minutes.
