Hope Springs Eternal

     I am well on my way back into the swing of things, I think lol. I have done shopping and lots of it. Bodies, heads, make-up and clothes. I'm no where near close to what I want to look like yet. I am taking shots of my progression and will be uploading them to Flickr when I have some time. I'll post them here as well along with a link to my flicker page. The picture you see on my profile is actually how I started second life over 10 years ago. I'll add that one as well because honestly that skin was a freebie someone gave me but honestly it was the best done freebie I ever ran across in my whole time playing.

     I'm learning so much and meeting new people every day. It's absolutely wonderful! I know we all have our families and people we hang with, but honestly since I've been back I've had total strangers say hello to me. I'm not really use to that to be honest. I was never an unpopular person before because I was a DJ for Drgnwingsradio and did many things in Second Life. But being out just roaming around I didn't get people just saying hello like I do now. I think the community has greatly improved over the years which I find greatly refreshing. I thought I would not be enjoying playing as much as I am, but everyone has made me feel very at ease and I have found I am phasing back into Second life much better than I expected I would. Thank you to all who have become new friends and to those I've yet to meet.

A Huge Thank You!

Hi all! Well it's day two and I'm well into my "new" self. I can say it's really been interesting and frustrating! I had the help of a wonderful person I was lucky enough to meet yesterday. She's a complete and total sweetheart and I would have been completely lost without her. Her name is Shari Cortes and I met her through Tiny Empires. It's a mini game in Second Life, basically a HUD where you play a small game. I won't go into details it but if your interested in finding out more just message me in world and I'll explain more about it. It's really fun and you meet great people playing it!
   
     Shari was kind enough to help me through all the utter chaos of understanding the new things that have come to Second Life while I was gone. She provided morale support along with landmarks and advice for making my avatar more up to date. While I don't recommend you just IM'ing a person out of the blue and asking for help, Shari is in my line in Tiny Empires and I asked a question about the game. We began talking and she offered.. I can't tell you how much I appreciated all the advice she gave me. As well as just being there to talk to about other things. I can honestly say I made a long time friend yesterday because she didn't have to do the things she did and I am truly indebted to her for everything. Please make sure to visit her blog. She's got awesome information, pictures and current events on her page. Shari The Cat

     As I continue my transformation, I'll post pictures. Right now in the process of all this trying things on and getting use to how things work I feel so unsure about EVERYTHING! I'm sure that will change as time goes by. Getting use to skins and appliers, so much to learn. I have patience and they say that is a virtue but only time will tell. I want to look my best and one day I will... maybe not tomorrow or the next day but soon.

A New Beginning

  I played Second Life religiously for many years. Then the one thing we never want to happen, did. A wonderful friend passed away from Leukemia and I lost it. I couldn't log into the game anymore. But the magic that is Second Life pulls at you until you yield and your curiosity can no longer hold out.

     I have awoke from my long slumber to find so much has changed! Mesh ... Everything! Bodies, clothes, shoes, feet, hands and I could go on and on! This is to chronicle my journey into the unknown realm of all these new things as I relearn basically from scratch What I should  look for and avoid as I get back into Second Life. I was a builder and designer back then, I'll also be relearning that. I'll share with you my changes in bodies, clothing and design work. I'm looking forward to learning as I feel that expanding the mind is the greatest gift one can give to oneself.

     Join me as I go through my new growing pains from a game I use to play everyday to one that is totally foreign to me now. Going from system bodies and prim clothes to new and better things. What new shapes and forms will I take on? Only time will tell dear reader... I hope you enjoy my journey as much as I'm sure I will.
