I KNOW what I’m Doing, thank you

This is triggered by Chestnut’s blog and by yet another RL friend “warning” me. RL and SL personalities may start the same at the moment when you create your SL life, but they will divurge. Sometimes it takes a while and is subtle, sometimes it happens right from the start. I’m hoping to be in the latter category.

To all my friends, both RL and SL, who have been cautioning me about “becoming addicted”, about losing contact with “real” life, about being “cruelly deceived” in SL – thank you for your concern. i DO appreciate it. But I KNOW what I’m doing. And if that turns out to be famous last words, so be it. When I spent 17 hours one weekend gardening no one felt obliged to caution me about being over-enthusiastic. Or when i’m fascinated by a good book no one says, “yes but you don’t want to get addicted to reading”.

In RL I am practical, sensible, responsible, aware of the implications of my behavior. I believe I take care of my family, my friends, my pets, my coworkers. I do “the right thing”. And I’m glad I’m that way and I have no desire to change. In RL, that is.

In SL I see an opportunity to be FREE – flirty, foolish, irresponsible, selfish, impractical, daring, devil-may-care. Hey – this is about ME! Girls just want to have FUN!!
