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!!

There's not much to say about me. I discovered SecondLife by accident, wandered in, and decided I wanted to stay. This blog was a chronicle of my adventures and misadventures in SL. It also includes stray thoughts that occur to me as a result of my time in SL. Both I and my avatar are female. We both love water and the beach and gardening and parties and hanging out with friends. Updating this after quite some time. I haven't appeared in SL in many many months (probably over a year by now) but SL has remained in my thoughts. I do miss my SL, but at least I still have contact with some of my friends from there. In the meantime.... this blog has evolved to be about my RL adventures. :) Nowhere near as risque as my SL but I do keep busy. I still like all the things listed above. I didn't have any cats in SL (only ducks and a panda) so my cats feel that they should play starring roles in my posts. :) I didn't do much eating IN SL although certainly food and drink accompanied me in RL while I roamed inworld. Cooking and baking have become more fun and interesting once I redid my kitchen. That renovation took longer and cost more than if I'd done it virtually, but I'm thrilled to have a tangible new kitchen! I hope you like food and drink as well! Thanks for reading!
