My Second Life Bucket List Challenge!

This is my 20th Monday Meme! I’m kind of surprised as I didn’t realize I’ve already been doing these memes for 20 weeks now. Are you guys sick and tired of them yet? No? Good, cuz I got lots more ideas up my sleeve. :P

My Second Life Bucket List Challenge!

This week I thought it was time to share my Second Life Bucket List in hopes that you all will do the same. If you are not familiar with what a bucket list is, it’s basically a list of things people want to eventually do during their lifetime. A lot of people create bucket lists. Sometimes they are just in our heads and not physically written down anywhere. I decided to write mine out for my SLife, and possibly start working on some of the things listed. There are a few things that I used to have on my sl bucket list that I’ve already accomplished (which I was quite happy about), such as: attend and/or be in a second life fashion show, go on an sl date, reach one million hits on my blog, and take pictures of over 1000 avatars (I’m close to 1500 avatars now).

If you have never had a bucket list before and decide to create one for your real or second life, you can check out BucketList.net. It seems like an interesting site and might help you get started.

Meme Instructions: Share at least 5 items on your Second Life Bucket List and try and complete one of the items on the list this week. Don’t forget to leave a link to your list in the comments below so we all can come by and check it out!

  1. Make a custom skin for myself! – I really really really want to learn how to make awesome skins so I can make one for myself and be totally unique.
  2. Dance with a Linden and/or Hamlet! – IT WILL BE AN SL DREAM COME TRUE!!!
  3. Do the Poppin’s Challenge for my Rezday! – Every year I tell myself, this year for my rezday I HAVE to do the Poppins challenge and every year I forget. Well next year I am for sure going to do it, putting it in my calendar now. For more info about the Poppins Challenge, check the wiki page and also join the flickr group.
  4. Learn how to make something amazing and mind-blowing in mesh! – Which is probably never going to happen.
  5. Go to at least 5 good live shows! – I’ve only ever been to one live show and that was for like just a few minutes and to be honest, I didn’t really enjoy it all that much. However, some of my friends love them and go to them all the time. Where can I look up good performers? Are there schedules listed anywhere?
  6. Play a part in an SL play! – A few weeks back I went to see Romeo and Juliet and I really enjoyed it. That got me thinking that it may be interesting to be part of a play. Perhaps not Romeo and Juliet but something else. It would definitely be a different experience.
  7. Have an inworld Art Gallery of some of my work and do some really artistic shots for it! – Sometimes I get so bored of my pictures, I wish I could be more artistic and creative and then perhaps one day have an inworld gallery of my work. It would be fun and a different experience. I want to do it on my own though, maybe one day!
  8. Create just one image that I like completely and not be able to find some kind of flaw in it! – They say we are our own worst critics and I absolutely believe that.
  9. Own a sim! Even though I have no idea what I would do with it even if I had one, maybe I’ll run a dance club. Would you come to my club? :P
  10. Make or be on a Podcast! – I am a huge fan of MetaReality Podcast and would love to do something like that one day. Although I am sure I will be crazy nervous and say “ummmmmmmmmmmm” a lot during recording if I ever got an opportunity. (UPDATE: I was just reminded that I WAS in a podcast last year. I wrote a story for The 100 Word Stories (RFL Challenge) for the word “Life.” I wrote it and recorded it and sent it to Mr. Crap and my recording was put in the podcast! (link here) so now I can cross this one off the list! \o/ )
  11. Go sailing in SL! – I have a friend who always used to talk about sailing and made it seem like so much fun but I never got around to do it myself. I really want to try it out one day and see what it’s like.
  12. Play some sort of sport in SL – I have heard they have cheerleading squads in SL, that may be fun to try out for some time. Also, does SL have a girls basketball team? Baseball? I am also awesome at soccer too. TOURNAMENTS FTW!

Ok so I shared more than 5 things on my list. There are a few more things I want to do which I will keep private, for now. :P I tried to do number 12 and got all dressed up for some basketball but when I googled “Second Life basketball” not much came up except for this facebook page and an old youtube video, which didn’t really help me out. So then I did a search inworld for basketball and I found the LDPW Public Basketball court. Basically it’s an urban city sim with a really nice basketball court and has rezzing capabilities enabled. So what I’m planning to do this week is stalk the court and go by there whenever I have a chance to see if I can crash any basketball games going on throughout the week. I am SO GONNA DO THIS!

Also, I googled sailing in second life and found this awesome wiki page with all sorts of info about sailing so totally going to do that too this week. Look at me gooooo!

  1. For sailing, I suggest you go and have a talk with Exotix (Inara Pey). She loves sailing in SL and we’ve gone on short sailing trips together a few times. As for me, I’m a happy passenger.

  2. omg that poppn challenge iscrazyyyy

  3. […] you for the easy peazey meme Strawberry! My Second Life Bucket List mostly consists of things I’ve started but never got to finish. So here’s my wink and a […]

  4. Oh my, that sailing Wiki is pretty much outdated and kinda clueless, sorry. I’ve never even heard about it or it’s author. There’s some half-true semi-information in it but fails as a general intro to sailing. Altogether we, as the Sailing Community, have failed so far spreading the word and make our activities known throughout the grid. SYC had a very successful beginners course for some years but thex stopped now pretty much all operations.

    Berry, sailing needs a bit of serious commitment, a lot of time and a general knowledge of not only sailing but how SL works at all. Sailing isn’t something you do after a 2 minute orientation, it’s not some sort of RP. Best is to have a solid background in RL sailing tho. I’m too much OCD so I never tried to become an instructor myself. If I can’t do it right I rather don’t do it at all. May I suggest you contact Charlz Price, he owns the Triumphal Yacht Club (TrYC), is a very nice and generous guy and always happy to give you a one on one lesson. As club we’ve stopped the official instructions since public interest was lacking.

    Oh, hey, here’s an idea: search for the group ‘Leeward Cruising Club’ and join them. I guess the LCC guys are the best ambassadors for SL sailing. They have 2 meticulously scouted and organized weekly cruises (Thu 5 P.M. + Sun 1 P.M.) in always changing areas all over the grid. And every cruise ends with a little \o/ Paaardayyyy! \o/.
    Anyway, our motto is “nobody left behind on the docks”, so all you gotta do is show up at the starting location half an hour before start time, contact the cruise director on duty (Chaos Mandelbrot on Tuesday + kittensusie Landar on Sunday) and ask them. They’ll find you a spot as passenger on some boat. That’s the most easy and soft approach to get into the scene. And then just soak it up from there on out ;)

    @ Mona: yeah I know Inara … by name. Never see her on the water tho. She’s not participating in any races/cruises I know of.

  5. Get the sim, rent it out, make money, the end. :P

  6. Diovona Czernowitzer says:

    Oh, what a fun meme! Thanks for sharing — you gave me a few ideas to try out myself. :)

  7. Poppins is fun, just remember to detach all AOs

  8. Here’s my SL bucket list! :)

  9. Bear Silvershade (@BearSilvershade) says:

    I’ll do a bucket list later, but for #5, live performances, it depends on what kind of music you like – I would suggest people like Joaquin Gustav or Frogg and Jaycat, but for a fun crowd, and a lovely jazz singer, come see Gina Gracemount sometime (Friday at 6 pm at aftermath is a great show, always)

    For sailing, check out Trudeau Yachts, Jacqui has a demo rezzer for her Leetle Cat which is fun and easy to sail. Happy to help you learn.

  10. #5 I love to go to live shows and I go all the time! I have made a page on my blog of my favorite performers: http://kirstentacular.blogspot.com/p/live-music-in-sl.html I also invite people (including you) in plurk, so come out next time I plurk an awesome show!

  11. Greetings, Strawberry!
    This is a great challenge meme – one I think I’ll do. Since Mireille is a bit sidelined by a wrist/elbow injury (she’s on the mend), I’m doing double-duty. She’s here with me as I type this – and she’s going crazy because I get to and she can’t. (She’s waving, even…)
    You’ve got a great blog and the memes are outstanding. Thank you for your work in SL to keep us all connected and learning about fashion, photography, and much of the technical updating that’s always happening. We do appreciate it!
    Bonne journée !

  12. PS: We have shows you can come see – and a THEATRE. New plays always under consideration too. Of course, there are LOADS of outstanding venues for you to visit. Check SL Search under Events for “Live Music” or “Arts and Culture.” You might be surprised at the outstanding talent you will find – and at many, many fine locations (and at virtually – pun intended! – any hour of the SL day or night). Give it a go!

  13. […] great blog. As we read together (romantic, eh…), we were struck by this Monday’s Meme: My Second Life Bucket List Challenge. Both M and I want to complete the challenge, so – with me as trusty secretary to The Divine […]

  14. Here is mine, I am hoping you will make one of my items come true :-p

  15. Hi Berry,

    Love your blog! Just wanted to let you know that they do have cheerleading and many different sports in SL. I used to be part of the basketball league as a cheerleader, but I don’t think that league exists anymore. However, if you are interested in cheerleading I am one of the Owners for the Ohana Packers in the CFL Football league. We are currently looking for cheerleaders and players. Let me know if you are interested! :)

  24. Reading all of your lists I’ve realized that I now want to add MORE stuff to my bucket list. Ugh, I am never gonna get it all accomplished now!

    Orca, that actually sounds like a lot of fun and I might be able to work the Sunday timing one day. Thanks for the heads up, will definitely join the group and check it out.

    Aeon, thank you so much for the compliments and also for sharing both your bucket lists! I hope Mireille’s elbow gets better soon!

    Beth I am very interested! I got your email and have replied. Looking forward to it!

    Jo! LOL I have actually been to 1920s Berlin but I was short on time when I went and haven’t had a chance to head back there. I’ll definitely come by real soon so you can cross that off your list, haha!

    Lady, I actually really enjoyed Romeo and Juliet and definitely recommend it, it was lotsa fun!

    Also, thank you to all those with the info about the live shows. I think I’ll be checking out some of those places later this week.

  25. On vacation, but had to mention another SL team sport you might check on: roller derby! Search on SLRDA. I’ve blogged about it, too.

    Mera, now you have me scared. :P

    Valkyrie, Actually Gianna said on twitter that it would be back in July, but I haven’t heard anything else since then. This is her last tweet about it: https://twitter.com/GiannaBorgnine/status/349712342491217922

  29. I could help you out with three off the list in one go! A live show, on stage, doing a set as a cheerleader. LOL I am not kidding, that’s in the next show for Lady Garden Cabaret.
