Today is my one year anniversary in SL. And well, as it turns out my sl is just as sad a life as my rl. Which by the way is not true. What is true is that my sl does indeed show some striking resemblance with my rl. People come…people go…people come back…people stay away…being succesfull takes both talent and hard work…you fall in love…you fall out of love…but all and all to me its still intruiging enough to hang out there. In the above pics a small collage of one year vi in sl. See how charming my newbie me looked? Hanging out in the welcome area…not knowing what to do…and immediately tackled by some italian. As you can see by the hair I had not yet really figured out the best way to look at myself en face and en profil. I actually took a camera controls class! Very helpful indeed! So having figured that out I kept on being followed around by this Italian guy who, how appropriate, decided to dye his hair violet. And well, as one would expect from a true Italian I ended up in his arms. And as one expects from a true Italian, he then disappeared from the face of the earth. In the meantime I already got myself acquainted with the rich fashion world of sl. At first I thought all clothing available was tacky you-might-as-well-go-nude stuff. But after being lectured by one famous fashion blogger I learned there really is a lot of variety in sl fashion. So to start my new shopping hobby I needed money. So I got myself a job at Jade’s Jazz Lounge. Such a nice place to party, to hang out, be jazzy, be drunk, be romantic. Besides all the great people I met at Jade’s I also met Mr ‘two different shoes’ Drumheller. Another cute character with a well practised disappearing act. After a few months of getting to know sl I decided it was time for something new. My own land to build something. That something became DEPOT. I had some nice exhibitions there, busy openings and actually sold quite some works. But as I always say about DEPOT, there is nothing revolutionary about that. New and revolutionary are words that can only be used for, in general I guess and art made in sl, the so called slart. For me there is still a lot to be seen without a doubt but in my annual report above some works that really impressed me. And one of those artists taught me what an enchanting experience voice chat can be. And then! There was the conflux festival! Walkie talkie walks in 0031. Read earlier blogposts about that :-) One night I took Overig shopping for some animations, he needed a better walk…we did not succeed…he thought the walks made him move like an ape…haha…Anyway, it was a busy year…and right in the end I found out about the Odyssey Land. I’m looking forward to the things that will be happening there the coming year. And romance? What about it? At the moment my best shot will be with the cute snowman that was following me around in one of the japanese shopping area’s!
