When I decided to complete this Berry Meme I thought it would be fun to answer some questions so you’d get to know a little bit more about me. It was a lot of fun, but it also highlighted something I have been feeling recently that I couldn’t quite put my finger on.
It’s not for a lack of making friends or meeting some incredibly wonderful people, because I have done both in the few weeks since I re-entered Second Life. I think it’s more the fact that the people I used to spend a lot of time with have all moved on, and I miss them. Those people that I was closest to are friends in real life, so they are still part of my life. It’s just… well… It’s not the same as being in Second Life and exploring, talking and laughing together.
With that in mind, I do apologise for the sad tone in some of my responses. I have tried many times to edit this to be less maudlin, but it just kept getting worse. So this is as good as it gets.
If you are so inclined to participate in this Meme here are the instructions:
Share your answers to the following questions.
Two online screen names you’ve had: I’m a bit of a weirdo and have used Raznay exclusively for 10+ years. I do have another screen name that I use for RL purposes, but I’d like to keep that private; at least for now.
Two video games you’ve played: DC Universe Online and World of Warcraft. I am a gamer in real life so it was hard to pick only two.
Two things you love about Second Life: I love meeting so many wonderful people as I flit around, especially lately while I’ve been participating in the Wayward Hunt. The other thing I love about Second Life is that it gives me the opportunity to do all the things I am not necessarily able to do in real life.
Two things you’ve done in Second Life: I have designed and created clothes and I have been a successful DJ.
Two things you still want to do in Second Life: I would like to learn how to craft mesh items and I would like to start making my own poses so I can create the images I picture when I write my posts.
Two things you like about your Second Life avatar: I love Razzy’s height and her shape, particularly her face.
Two of your Second Life Pet Peeves: People who don’t read profiles before contacting me and people being unnecessarily rude.
Two things you did as a newb that you’re embarrassed of: Buying Xcite body parts as a joke, because spending that much money for a joke is just totally hilarious…
I’m also highly embarrassed — and ashamed — of trusting people who didn’t deserve my trust.
Two of your closest friends in Second Life: At this point in time I really only have one close friend. After a three year absence not a lot of people keep you on their friends list and even less are still around.
Two of the most beloved things in your inventory: Definitely my Maitreya Mesh Body and photo’s of friends that have long since moved on.
