A long, long time ago,
In a sim no longer here,
Raznay played the tunes at night…
If you haven’t read my About Razzy section yet you wouldn’t know that in my early days of Second Life I was a Hostess and, gradually, I became a DJ.
I say “gradually” because it wasn’t entirely my idea, nor the path I saw myself going down. The venue that I was hosting for — which included welcoming new players to SL and teaching them how to navigate the game — was in need of a DJ and I just happened to be around, bored and wanted to do anything I could to please my superiors.
Within an hour I was loaded up with a stream, software on my computer to actually stream the music into SL and absolutely no idea what the hell I was doing.
In spite of knowing absolutely nothing about DJ-ing that first set went remarkably well! I ended up having a regular set and would fill in when others couldn’t make it, which meant I ended up working multiple sets a day; every day.
I’m sure it wouldn’t surprise you when I tell you that I burnt out quickly. I learnt my lesson, eventually, that I needed to say “No” and mean it. I’ll write more about that magical word in another post.
My DJ career finally ended when I realised that I needed a break from Second Life to try and regain some semblance of a real life.
I would be lying if I said I didn’t miss it, after all it was a big part of my life in second life. It was also something I happened to be good at and that’s not something I think anyone can walk away from too easily.
I also earned a decent income that meant I could fund my ridiculous shopping addiction. That would have been more awesome if I actually had free time to go shopping since this was before the marketplace even existed and x-street was still in its infancy and not a lot of shops were selling their products that way.
I must admit the marketplace has made my return so much more rewarding as I can shop at multiple stores at once! And on lazy days I don’t even have to leave my little home! It’s as close to heaven as I think I’ll ever get!!
