Inspiration For Animal Jam

Hello, I am RjKingBeast, again here. I've been thinking about Animal Jam. And how it's like real life problems everyday mostly. You're probably thinking "Oh boy, another post about rares!" Well, it is sort of. I'm talking about the whole Animal Jam. How you should just be yourself. I honestly can't take the whole rare business anymore. I will be glad when they all come out. Cause recently I realized I just didn't care about rares anymore. They affected me for so long and now I just don't care.
My inspiration that help me just give up on rares was my favorite hip-hop artist, Macklemore. (I know some of you don't like hip-hop, but listen to what he has to say, please. I'm not making you, just telling you it's not that bad.) He has a song that I thought really explained Animal Jam. It expressed how he was little and he got a pair of shoes that none of his friends could afford. He got a pair of Nike shoes and he wanted be to like the big stars. So he wanted what he couldn't have, but he ended up getting it and no one else could get them cool. He had his own pair and it consumed his thoughts. He told him he was so cool now and that he just could laugh at everyone else who couldn't get the same pair. He was mean to his friends and everyone else. 
One day, he saw a kid with the same pair of sneakers and he realized that he's not cool anymore. His Nikes help define what he really was. That he was just himself, and no one else really care about them. He realized it was just another pair of shoes that he paid at least $400 for. It made him think that he didn't really need to get them and it wasn't the sneakers that made him cool, it was him.

It made me realized that what I have was just another rare that is probably gonna come out in stores anyways and that other people probably have my rare. So I just gave up and started to be me. My friends love me for who I am, not for what I have. I am grateful for what I have, though. But I will not let rares consume me ever again. 
It makes me really mad when I realized that Animal Jam makes you come back for it's rares, not for your friends. It makes you addicted for rares. When people say "When tops are out in stores, I'm going to quit!", I think of how they don't really care about their friends. They care only about rares. I'm definitely not going to quit because my rares are coming out. I have friends, not items. I lost some of my really good friends to rares because they either got scammed or their item just came out in stores. And that makes me angry at Animal Jam.
Well, thanks for reading this short post. I got tired of the Magic post cause I honestly was tired of her making it to the big headlines. She scammed, okie cool. It's been like what, 3 week weeks? I'm sure you all know that she has scammed and to not trust people like her. Thanks for reading, I'm RjKingBeast. Take it easy out there.

  1. Goldy I know how you feel.
    Today I was just deleting some buddies, and I felt there was a pit in my stomach. They're just someone I used to know. (Bye gotye, that song)
    people quit and I used to know them, and it just makes me sad that they quit for stupid reasons. When i was looking at my friend princessfunshine, i felt a pit in my stomach She QUIT. BECAUSE. OF ME. I just want to bring these people back, but we cant.

    1. Um, I made the post, not Gold. I have no idea where she is at the moment.
      And that is really said. I deleted some people that quit because of rares too. They were really cool people.

  2. Well, what im saying is, it isnt our choice what happens, and I felt bad about deleting people because I used to know them. Like, it is almost like real life, its like ditching a friend. You just feel bad about it!

  3. Guys, Magic quit for GOOD.. I'm serious. I got on AJ today and she had deleted me and only had one animal left. I got a jamagram saying, "Hi! This is Magcic's older sis. She wanted me to tell you she quit for good."

  4. I'm really sad at this moment, and it might seem like its because of rares. It probably is, in a way, but I'm still feeling down.

    A couple weeks ago i traded my founders off for a pink top hat, a long black spike, and freedom wings. I didn't know how much the founder meant to me. I joined AJ at around that time, and its the only clothing item on animal jam that truly has meaning to me. It reminds me of all my buddies that quit, and the others that drifted apart from me. I know i can't bring them back, but i want to remember them desperately.

    I'm willing to trade all that i got for my founder for a founder. I know no one is going to accept....everyone cares about rares these days. Its just my final desperate attempt to do things... I'm almost totally given up.

    Please, can an understanding person look down and see things with sympathetic eyes? Even if no one will do this...most likely because of "rarity", i'm not giving up until i get a founders again. I started from scratch and this is what i've come to. I'm not falling back, not at all.

    1. Maybe I can ask my bro. He has a founder. But still, he really likes it as a head item and I am not so sure he would like a PINK top hat. Nothing against pink top hats though I have one myself ;D

      We don't care about rares!!!!

    2. I have a founders, But, It means so much to me cause it's my oldest item... And I got it from a very dear friend who has sadly, quit. I might do your trade, might not. Add me and send me a buddy request on AJ. My username is Anakin1190. I don't care about rares either! :D I just have what I have cause I have awesome buddies who send me stuff and I like how some rares look. So I trade for the stuff I actually like! Not just the super rare things... For example beards... I don't like them, I don't have them! Well I'll make this comment not extend into a lot of touching my I pads screen for half an hour.

  5. Everyone will get to a time where you realize you haven't traded for rares in weeks. I realized this 2 months ago. The word rare's makes me roll my eyes now. I don't care about rares. A lot of people say this though. But I mean it. But the more you pressure people, the harder it is to drop rares. No one pressured me and the only rare I own is a rhino. I'm cool with not having rares. The only reason I have my rhino and other items is the sentimental value. The rhino was given to me by a good buddy, who unfortunately quit. You could offer anything and I wouldn't accept. (That in no way means that I want you to try to trade me rares for my rhino, just a statement.) Animal Jam could be so much better if they
    released all the items. But thats just my opinion.

  8. It's really said when rares come before friendship. I have had friends that add me because they want my rares. They'll add me, then we'll talk for a while, and then they'll send me an out do the blue trade request of something lame I can buy in stores like a tree for my bat wings. And then when I deny they get all mad and accuse me of being a bad friend. It's horrible. I mean, really, I feel like I have a very small handful of friends that I can trust, and then everyone else has to be on the suspicious list, which makes me sad. I wish people would just stop. It's seriously annoying, and sad. I hate deleting friends, but sometimes I have to... ):

    Everyone is acting like their friendship doesn't matter. Well not everyone it's just that I used "everyone" as an expression for many , because many is acting so.. So.. I don't know what to put.. Ridiculous! We are all thinking that rares matter more then friendship. I want to end this. I want to give all my rares away, but I'll only give those who are true friends who do not want rares but friendship. I'll give all of my rares to anyone who has a strong friendship. FRIENDSHIP is what I want. I wish this non-sense would stop. I'm 10 years old, I've played AJ for 2 years and still- no improvement, it changed. Changed into a total disaster virtual world. I would go to Club Penguin then to AJ. This game is totally a disaster, they scam and hack all the time! AJ has little games and less codes, CP has LOTS (I seriously mean) LOTS of games, and a few codes. But the games are awesome. We can hang out with friends, they don't have a trading system or a gifting system. But that doesn't matter, they have little rare stuff since every year they release previous items from the past back. I miss those AJ times were we don't even have to say "Hi! Please be my friend." to other people to be their friends, we can directly be friends to people who are rare AND non-rare. CP, we never scam. CP, we just wait, Club Penguin gives a few stuff to non-mems every year depending on what celebration is it, like example, Christmas, Santa hats. Easter, propellers. Birthday (CP's Birthday) , Birthday hat. I hope one day. Wait- my grandparents had always said that one day, everyone will use their phones/cellphones all together. Now, I can translate that to my language, One day, everyone will realize that friends matter more then rares. See, anything IS possible. We all know that. For with the LORD, anything is possible, even jumping off Mt. Everest and live. Yup, possible. Ride with Finn and Jake on Lady Rainacorn? Yup. Possible. Write the numbers up to what ever number you can reach for your whole life and not eat, drink, or pee or poop or sleep? POSSIBLE. Anything is possible. I feel like this is a short post then a long comment. I just hope everyone will understand the meaning of Friendship.

    Friendship means to me that it's not about rares, it's about hanging out with friends and having your time with them. That's what friendship means.

    Thanks for reading my comment even though it may take a day or two to finish.

  11. Yeah, Some people think that: "Oh, Hmm lets see... well i could have virtual rares or friends... I pick rares cause i can always get more buddies! :D" But most people think that we are just virtual too. We are real people REAL friends we arent virtual and the friendship was real. Okie yeah so what if someone on aj who lived in Alaska was friends with someone in Texas who played aj? The friendships still real guys. We just think "oH hey, this guys rare lemme buddy him grab his rares because hes not real :)" JUST because you cant see them in person doesnt mean their just pixels to you! I mean friends can apply a LOT in real life, even if you were friends on aj Possibly, Rares? Uhhhh, No. You dont just go to some store that's hiring people and say You:"Hey can i have a job?" Manager:"What have you accomplished Sir/Ma'am?" You:"WELL, I got a top hat on animal jam! :D Does that count?" Manager: "Yah Okie cool you got a top hat on a virtual game good job but uh... NO, The doors that way :)" Now id be veeeeeeeerrrrrry disapointed if someone ACTUALLY did that (xD)Because thats EXACTLY how someone is going to treat you if you say that. Friends are real, Rares are not.
