Hi. Today, I celebrate 9 years in SL. Can you believe it? I sure can’t. That means I am one shy of 10. I know, I know, I’m sure you’re great at math but what I’m thinking about is man, where was I nearly 10 years ago?
Well, to be honest, I was not in a good place in my life. I had heard from a friend that Second Life existed. So, I was a recent college graduate who had fell on some hard luck. 2008 was not a good year to find a job. I had moved to the Kansas City area to find a job in graphic arts… but I ended up finding a job at a local restaurant. I was living with my then fiance… and I heavily participated in Second Life in the beginning as a hideout from my real life. He was an unfortunate part of my life. I was young and dumb. I was fooled twice, and by the third time… I’d had enough. The worst of it? I had to still live with the moron until the following July. That’s part of my life I’d like to forget, but at least it is what made me who I am today. So, let’s fast-forward 9 years. I am living with my other half, the completion to my world. We have one beautiful daughter, a dog, a cat, two jobs, two cars. We’re looking forward to next year… we have a few lofty goals for next year. We’d like to buy a house, lose some considerable weight, and hopefully, bring a brother or sister home to our daughter.
The other cool part to this is I happened to hit this milestone while also hitting another. This is my 250th post. Not all of my posts are here.. some started strictly on Facebook… but here we are. It’s a wild ride but I am having such a blast as I go. I may not be the best, I may not be the greatest, but I am me… there’s nothing that can change that.
