This month we have some great interviews from Moe & R e i . Enjoy the read!
 
HWhat is one of your accomplishments you're most proud of?

Moe : I was going to make this answer Alora related, but I will actually reply to this in question 3 as this seems like it is more in general. I think my favorite accomplishment in life so far is having built real online side hustles to generate a real income instead of working the classic 9-5. I hope to get back on that track later, but right now my focus is Alora!

 

HWhat is something you think everyone should do at least once in their lives?

Moe : TRAVEL or Psychdelics (SAFELY/CHECK HEALTH FIRST), Maybe both? Seeing the world and experiencing other cultures/people for yourself I think is huge, and it sort of connects with psychdelics. In the sense that we are all connected, and in the end we are here for a short time to try to live a fulfilling life together until we go back to where we started!

 

HWhat is your most memorable moment while playing Alora?

Moe : I have made many memorable moments here at Alora, thankfully to all you beautiful souls I have gotten to meet. So I will answer this with joining the staff team, as it has given me the opportunity to be a part of something much bigger. A loving community in a stupidly addicitng game we all call home.

 

HWhat do you do in your spare time apart from play Alora?

Moe : For the past 3-4 months as most of you may have noticed, I have been a little less active. I have been busy with IRL problems, most have been sorted now and I will finish with a surgery end of this month. Which is basically what all my spare has been going to (doctors). Before that my average day consisted of meeting up with friends to go out, turning up of course, expanding my online gigs, investing in crypto, & playing FIFA/Yu-Gi-Oh on PS5.

 

HIf you were given $10,000, what would you do with it?

Moe : Invest it into another online business, I don't think these days I would use money for anything other than trying to make more money with it. The beautiful thing about the online world and the reality these days, you can make money out of ANYTHING! Just get creative, all you have to do is create demand for a service/product you can easily do yourself (in any market)!

 
Next up is R e i
 
HWhat is one of your accomplishments you're most proud of?
R e i : I don't usually speak about it, but my most proud accomplishment, was beating cancer, It was during a very low point in my life with depression, family issues and all that and to top it all off being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer was something that borderline almost killed me, not because of the severity of such cancer because it was thankfully caught on very early, but the stress and mental toll it took on me, that a certain instance i thought about taking my own life, thankfully I sought help, got said help and still am here today, healthier and a happy person.
 
H : What is something you think everyone should do at least once in their lives?
R e i : Travelling, visit a new country, there's so much out there to see in the world, a lot of beautiful place to see and enjoy all in ones capabilities naturally. I had the chance to visit a friend in Hong Kong and it was an amazing experience for me, being someone from Europe, travelling so far into the Asian continent was a beautiful and enjoyable experience for myself and I got to see a new culture, try out new foods and visit their awesome casinos  :P I think life is best lived when you have the possibility to go to new places, try new things and just enjoy yourself in general.
 
HWhat is your most memorable moment while playing Alora?
R e i : I would definitely say becoming a staff member, I've had been apart of the community for awhile around the time, I decided to try and become apart of the team, although I wasn't exactly a very friendly player back then, I feel like I did reform to some degree and that enabled me to join a lot of great people at the time, even tho I have a lot of regrets about that past.
 
HWhat do you do in your spare time apart from play Alora?
R e i : Have been into coding lately so definitely that, working out, spending a lot of my time with friends and family is something that i've started to do a lot more this past year because i see both as equally important and spending a lot of time infront of the computer is not something that I personally enjoy anymore. Games wise, I am very addicted sadly to league of legends and horror games, survival ones more specifically I just find those absolutely engaging as fuck to play and sometimes lose track of time.
 
HIf you were given $10,000, what would you do with it?
R e i : I would give it to my mom, I work very hard to make sure that she doesn't need to work and deserves to enjoy life, sadly my stepdad died 2 years ago on new years day and she hasn't been the same since, so I put a lot of attention towards her care and quality of life, so i think 10k would go a long way as to take her to a few places and make sure she gets the life she deserves.
