Well, kids. Today is my 999th day in Second Life.
Just stating that fact BLOWS me away.
999 days..of bullshitting around in a cartoon world.
999 days of shopping for cartoon stuff that I've worn once..and never used again. LOL
999 days of decorating and undecorating and redecorating.
999 days of making and breaking friendships.
Some people celebrate their 1,000th day. I kinda like my 999th day better. It's like being at the edge of a mountain just.....being.
Because that's kinda where I am right now. :) Happy just being.
I could sit here and dole out advice to noobs..or those younger than me in SL.
But here's the thing - it won't matter. I heard it all/saw it all. And I still made the same mistakes. I guess some lessons you have to learn for yourself.
My advice is simple.
:) Just enjoy your SL and the people you're with. Don't get caught up in the drama - don't read too much into things, and don't hold on to things that don't make you feel good. Just..have fun. :P
I know..I say it a lot..and then don't take my own advice.
Story of my life.
:) But I'm in an amazing place these days. Having fun with my friends..listening to great music (courtesy of THE sexiest DJs in SL)..working on projects for Connected. :) Just making my Second Life fabulous again.
Some days I wonder why I've logged in....
But when I get into the middle of my family..hop on a tip jar..lay on a couch..and I'm surrounded by the people I love best.. :) I know why.
Happy travels, kids!
