After even more run ins with horny teenagers which we evaded by telling them we cannot have sex because we are unicorns in search for virgins, after which they proceeded to leave, we bumped into a 25 year old Brit named Arthur who was taking up Marine Biology
Omegle is an online chat website that allows users to communicate with strangers without registering. The service randomly pairs users in one-on-one chat sessions where they chat anonymously using the handles “You” and “Stranger”. (source: wikipedia)
She told me she wanted to be a nurse and asked me about what nursing is like because I told her it was my pre-med
Omegle is actually very interesting, because compared to most chat rooms, it’s just you and someone labelled stranger. You can choose to leave any time you like and if you begin feeling uncomfortable with whoever you’re chatting with, and they can do the same. I’m sure everyone has an idea of what a chat room is like, because I don’t want to waste my time discussing how it works.
When I chat, I try not to take everything so seriously. I hate the “hi, asl” thing and apparently most people do. So, along with my cousin who is also named Patricia, we ended up starting really strange conversations, pretending to be unicorns from unicornland, penguins in antartica, or just being really really really major trolls. Like I said, nothing serious.
First person who actually sounded cool and didn’t leave the chatroom when we told them some random thing was this guy who started off with saying “‘sup?” and we responded by saying “hi” and he asked “dude or duddette?‘ and i said “duddette. ??” and he was really cool. He was like, “Oh hi duddette!” and I said “So, are you a dude, dude?” and he said yes. then before we could continue the conversation, my cousin accidentally clicked the mouse and ended the conversation. Which was bad because he sounded really cool. But it did give us hope that somewhere out there, there were people like us.
First thing we said to him was “please don’t be a horny teenager” and he said “Don’t worry, I’m not. My name is Arthur, it’s a pleasure to meet you” and with that we began our conversation. I asked if he finally found his sword, and he told me he was still working on it. (King Arthur) It was an interesting conversation considering how polite he was and how “gentlemanly” his questions and answers were. Besides taking up Marine Biology, he also works at a radio station, which was intriguing because I have always wanted to work as a DJ for Killerbee, but they only wanted me for the morning because my voice was too high pitched and “perky” for the evening shift. After talking about college and tumblr, he told me to give him 2 seconds and we magically got disconnected because of a technical error. He was nice. Strange and quiet, but nice.
The next person I met was this guy below. I just wanted to post it because I had so much fun with this guy or girl. I mean, this is how I am. I say random things and wait to be surprised by whoever is on the other end.
The first is from Taiwan, but moved to Australia for school. Her name is Maggie and she was really nice. ?? She told me she was extremely shy and had to overcome that first before she even expected to become a good nurse. I told her that nursing will help her with her shyness and will teach her how to talk to people especially to her patients therapeutically. She asked me if nursing was hard, and I told her all things in life have some level of difficulty but if she really really really wanted it, then it wouldn’t matter because it would be worth it. The conversation ended early because of the time difference and she had school the next day. She asked for my facebook and added me and I guess we have Asian pride, because we talked about Being Asian a bit and how Awesome we are (ASIAN ftw!)
