After the many blog items about exploring and fashion I have been publishing lately, I wondered this morning 'why am I doing this?'. All the energy, the fuss about pixels...
Please don't misunderstand me: I love the exploring in SL, which gives me really great joy. I like taking pictures RL and SL, and I love beautiful things and like creating a look for my avi.
But, all the fuss and work is it worth it and is that all there is in SL....
Yesterday, after spending most of my evening shopping at Maitreya (there is a sale going on this week; 50% off on all items, took ages for items to rezz well you know lag lag lag... ), I spoke with my friend Sven. He said things that touched my heart and I started thinking about his words.
In short he mentioned me being too busy with worrying about blogging, taking pictures of places I explore, keeping up with the latest SL fashion, hunting group gifts, sales, buying clothes, hair, skin,shoes, etc. No time left to enjoy SL, have fun, dance, listen to good music, talk to friends. Mmm, is he right?
In a way he is, but on the other hand I do like to write and take pictures and explore and share this info with others about what I saw and experienced. It's a dualistic thing.
He talked about his first impression of me; a beauty with a tag 'The Brains' (which btw was the group of Alphons, my ex landlord). He said he wanted to get to know me coz he was intrigued.
Sven asked me 'where has that girl gone?'. Aww, that hurt, I told him she is still there and to illustrate it I changed my tag into 'The Brains'. Big smile.
However, he meant the Dido with the skin and hair as she used to wear about a year ago. Hey Sven, this is SL and we girls like to experiment and change our looks. Nothing wrong with that is there?
But I know what Sven is pointing at, am I too busy blogging, having no time left to enjoy the game? Will think about it Sven, thanks for being honest.
