This week’s meme idea was given to me by none other than the infamous Mr. Draxtor Despres. The idea is based off of the real life hashtag #FirstWorldProblems where people share and complain about problems that aren’t actually real problems. It’s all kind of hilarious. You can check out the #FirstLifeProblems and #FirstWorldProblems hashtags on twitter and on KnowYourMeme for examples. Drax suggested I bring that into Second Life and do a Monday Meme on it. Thank you Drax for the idea!
Meme Instructions: Create a #SecondLifeProblems meme image. It can be an image of any avatar doing anything in Second Life. Write a Second Life Problem over the image and share your meme on your blog or any social network with the hashtag #SecondLifeProblems. Don’t forget to share the link to your post in the comments and add your pictures to the Blog Memes flickr group.
I loved the idea so much I asked the talented Ms. Zaara Kohime to make a mesh t-shirt for me that I can wear in the post. You do not have to wear the shirt for your post! If you would like, you are free to use my first image that I left blank for the meme. Or you can create your own image. I’m looking forward to seeing how creative you guys get with this.
For my contribution, I had a few ideas 😛
I’m going to watch the hashtag on different social networks. Quite a few people have already been using this hashtag from before, hopefully we’ll get some more good submissions in there!:

You don’t have to have a blog to do this challenge, you can share your image on any social platform you prefer.
While Ms. Zaara Kohime was making me this t-shirt, we decided to collaborate together on a few more ideas I had. She has created 6 original mesh t-shirts for me with sayings that I’ve suggested to her. You can find them all in my marketplace store as well as a new store that Sawyer Campese has created for me at the LE.LOOK! Fashion District. I love the store, it looks like a Strawberry! Thank you so much to both Zaara and Sawyer for helping me set all this up.
The shirts are in Standard Size mesh for both men and women and I was easily able to wear them with both the Classic Second Life avatar as well as my Maitreya mesh body. You can click over to marketplace and try on a DEMO. (UPDATE – THESE SHIRTS ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE)
After working on a release like this for the first time and then setting it all up on marketplace and inworld, I’ve realized just how time consuming it is to be a Second Life Content Creator. To make even such a simple item takes so much amount of work. I have even more respect for creators now, lol! But even with all the work though, Zaara and I had a lot of fun making these shirts. I hope you guys enjoy wearing them! I have quite a few more ideas for sayings on these shirts, so watch out for more fun releases in the future!
