May 9th is my 7th Rezday. 7 years ago today I stumbled upon the virtual world of Second Life, created an account and logged in. I was lost and didn’t quite understand what I was doing so I logged out and didn’t think about it again until a week later. I’m glad I returned and gave it another shot. If I hadn’t, I wouldn’t have created friendships and memories that I will always cherish.
This year for my rezday I did something I’ve wanted to do for a while, and was on my Second Life Bucket List. It’s called the Poppins Challenge. The challenge states: “Climb, fly or teleport up to a great height and jump naked… open your Poppins Umbrella and float gently to the ground, snapping pictures or taking video footage as you go.”
So I used my umbrella from Lisp. It had this pose attached to the umbrella. My platform is 1400m up high so I grabbed the umbrella, took a deep breath and jumped. NSFW picture after the cut….
Of course, I ended up landing on Zaara’s platform which is about 700m below mine. But it was still quite fun.
I’m not sure how much longer my Second Life journey will last. Sometimes I feel that I’m getting older and should do other things with my time. Perhaps take up a hobby that may be more beneficial in some way or just find something better to do with my time.
Am I too old to be dressing up dolls, taking pictures of them and blogging about it? Maybe, I don’t know. But what I do know is that the friendships and acquaintances I’ve created in Second Life, and the love, encouragement and support I’ve received from them, has helped me in so many aspects of my real life.
So I’m here and I’m happy to be here. It’s been a wonderful 7 years and I’m thankful for every moment of it. Thank you for being a part of my Second Life journey. <3
UPDATE: Shadow asked me if he could have a picture to pile up for my rezday. So here it is, thought I’d share it with everyone in case you want to put mangoes on me and/or make me into a meme. Click over for a link to the original large image:
