There was someone I used to have long intellectual conversations with about politics, religion, finance, convenience stores (don’t ask), fashion, food, movies, tv shows, and so much more. That person is no longer in my life and I kind of miss and crave the all-nighters we used to have just talking our ears off.
It’s funny because I’m usually not a chatterbox in the real world. When in big crowds, I’m quiet and keep to myself for the most part. I’m better one on one, but even with that, I need to feel comfortable around the person. So for me to crave conversation, is an unusual occurrence. I’m craving those conversations.
Conversations in Second Life are different for me. I don’t like talking about heavy things online or getting into heated discussions. There are really only a handful of people I chat with regularly about topics more than just pixels. I know in essence SL is just one big chatroom itself, but I never really was able to open up to more than a few people on here. It may be a trust issue because when chatting I like to look into the other person’s eyes. Usually the eyes tell a lot more about what a person is thinking or feeling than the lips do.
Where are you most chatty? In the real world or in SL?
When I first got this retro space set from The Secret Store, I started thinking of cool locations or processes in Photoshop I can use to do some interesting spacey images but then I attached this adorable little alien and decided to keep it simple with him. I loved the way his big, inquisitive eyes looked up at me and I just felt it was the perfect moment to take the snapshot. If you want one of your own, head down to Arcade now.
