It’s #NationalTellAStoryDay and a new #SecondLifeChallenge from Strawberry Linden (I’m so used to calling her Strawberry Singh, it’s hard to remember she’s a linden now! Hehe). For this weeks challenge, she has challenged us to tell our Second Life story…
How did you discover Second Life and what do you love most about being a Resident?
So my story kind of starts off slow. It was September 2009 when I heard about SL on a commercial. At the time I just thought it was pretty cool but kind of ignored it. It wasn’t until a coworker at my RL work (I was a hotel operator for a Casino in Nevada), that I decided to check it out. She talked about all these cool things like “planning a wedding” in some place called SL. I asked her about it and she described this place that sounded cool. That night I downloaded the “game” and started exploring. It was a learning experience for sure.
My first day in SL, I ended up at a noob island. I didn’t like how I looked so I tried to change my avatar right there at the landing point. At the time I didn’t know I should find someplace else to do that. Some guy took me back to his clan’s castle and introduced me to his “queen.” Which I didn’t know what that was, but I went with it. I was really shy and didn’t know where he was taking me tbh, he just said he would help me with the game. I learned the hard way that night to not go off with just anyone because at this castle they were biting each other! I didn’t know what that was about for a long time, but I now know it was Bloodlines. I didn’t understand and I was like “wtf is this” and logged off. I didn’t return for three weeks until after I told my coworker that I had logged in and didn’t know what was going on and that people were biting each other!
That was how I discovered Second Life… the problem was, my SL life was a bit rocky for the first five years. (You can read my story here) Now, though, my life as a resident is much better. I’m not going to go into details because you can read it on my blog! Have a great day, Adventurites! As always, stay safe, alert, not anxious and have fun! Laters! ~LA
