Today is my Rezz day, which means I have spent a whole year playing Second Life. I started SL because my boyfriend was heavily into Warcraft. I never really was the kinda girl that liked quests or whatever else they do in that game. I heard about this thing called Second Life where people made and bought virtual items and talked with other people from all over the world. I was intrigued and became hooked after minutes of rezzing.
I will admit that things was very confusing at first. I spent about two hours at Orientation island trying to read all signs and tutorials that were posted all over. You know I never got that stupid beach ball to move. I wanted to learn as much as I could about Second Life, I attended all the classes that I could attend at NCI. I desperately wanted to shed that newbie skin. I guess thats one of the main reasons why I mentor, So many wonderful people helped me during that newbie phase and I will always be grateful and want to return the kindness to others.
This past year has been one of the roughest I had in RL, I know that I would not have been able handle all the crap life threw my way if it was not for my support system of friends that I made in SL. They were the ones that gave me advice and consoled me. We share our secrets and vent our frustrations to one another. These are the people that keep me laughing and logging into SL everyday. MUHA! love you
I know there is still more to learn about SL, more to explore and there will definitely be more shopping. I only hope that I can loose another year in SL.
Losing a whole year
And if its not the defense then youre on the attack
When you start talking I hear the prozac
Convinced youve found your place
With the pierced queer teens in cyberspace
When you were yourself it tasted sweet
But it sours into a routine deceit
Well this drama is a bore
And I dont want to play no more
Losing a whole year
