So what’s the right way to start off this post? Hi? Hello? Sorry I haven’t actually blogged anything in over a year?
You know, it’s almost 4am. I’m really not going to get into the details of why I left SL for a little while (okay, a long time. Like a year). I’m not going to bore you with needless ranting about my mom having cancer and trying to get back into college and getting engaged and all that jazz. A lot has happened since my last blog post (which is, ironically titled, “I’m baaaaack!” and obviously, I was only baaaaaack for one blog post).
I honestly don’t know why I let my RL get in the way so much. I genuinely enjoy logging into SL and pretending to be someone else for a while. I enjoy being on Plurk and reading about everyone else’s crazy lives, and I enjoy sharing bits of my own. So, I really don’t have an answer as to why. Maybe it’s because I’m really busy in real life, and hardly have any extra money to really spend in SL on what I want. And even though I label myself as a “fashion blogger”, I’ve never asked any designer for anything, because I’m just not comfortable with that. I’ve always just bought it myself.
At the moment, I’m a homeless resident, aimlessly wandering the desolate prim streets, searching for a purpose (haha). I’ve been kicked out of sandboxes for rezzing too many prims or being naked while organizing my inventory, and I’ve been bothered by countless noobs (mostly men, who seem to be just DYING to poke me with a prim penis). Most of my friends I had before are hardly ever online, and the sim I lived on doesn’t exist anymore. And, in this Second Life, there’s no government assistance, meaning I’m forced to live a destitute life and find a sandbox that hasn’t banned me to rez a bed in. No food stamps, no government-funded healthcare.
ANYWAY, of course I’ve attempted to enable shadows and try and take nice pictures (I’d like to think I’m still photogenic, even for a homeless person), and what do you know, the brand-new computer I bought like a year ago (that set me back almost $1000) DOESN’T DO IT. NO SHADOWS. NONE. ZILCH. #$%$%&^&&$##$%@$^.
So, in honor of how shitty my computer is, I took rainy pictures today, because rain makes me feel depressed, and my luck with SL lately has been, well, depressing. That was also a run-on sentence.
Oh, well. Enjoy my really crappy quality pictures that I found out were WAY too dark after I spent forever taking them because everything was so laggy and I couldn’t find my poses and everything was just crap. Also a run-on sentence. Pssh. Love you guys. Thanks for putting up with me. ❤
