What does one say when you spend six years of your life in an online community called Second Life?? Well, certainly as I celebrate my sixth Rez Day today it’s gonna be hard to really pinpoint why I have made it this far. But one of the biggest reasons why is my passion as a volunteer for the American Cancer Society’s war on cancer thru the Relay For Life of Second Life. I could come up with other reasons but this is by far the most important one to me, soooooooooo…:):):)
So here I sit again, almost midnight going on Saturday up and pounding on this poor over worked, under paid keyboard LOL!! Seriously, I don’t know why this happens alot lately but I guess when you stop and look around you see how much of a chance I take getting online and loose track of time, especially when my head is buried being involved with what I had been doing in the virtual world of Second Life, and in Guild Wars.
I guess a lot of times I wonder if I ever get any satisfaction out of what I’m doing to which I can say yes to that. I might not make any money out of it of course but thats beside the point. Where I get the satisfaction from is through interacting with friends around the world in working for a common cause, or just having fun doing crazy stuff within reason.
Most of the same reason why I blog right?? I do this because I enjoy it. I feel connected with those who may be following me or subscribe to my feeds and all. I do this because I want to share a part of me with the universe and not be so narrow minded. Kinda hard especially when I’m not married, living in an apartment, disabled to a point of not able to work, but I call my blogging work. I call this my work and its so easy to do especially when I can get on here and go to town with my thoughts and what not.
I can only say that what ever happened though in the past in my life, I walked away and burnt quite a few bridges in the process, while it wasn’t the best I still press onwards and hoping for a new day ahead of me. Time will tell if my blogging will help me in ways never before imagined.
I been in the virtual community of Second Life now going on five and a half years and it certainly seems like time came to a crawl. I guess because I had so much going on that I lost track of time and didn’t even realize where I was till one day sometime ago, I had to step back and look in the mirror.
If you did what I been through then you would know right?? But it just seems like that no matter where I was in RL, I was usually doing something in Second Life that I had to really question my reasoning as well as my sanity LOL!! I guess in all probability I’d just say heck with it and go on with my usual happy go lucky kinds of ways and enjoy what I can of my virtual existance, for what it’s worth.
I could say this how ever that no matter what came up I always managed to get around without a scratch and come out a winner. Next time I’ll say a little more about some of my old days in Second Life and work my way to the present.
Have a great St. Patty’s!!
