It has been quite some time! I few things have changed for me in RL (for the better) and I needed to take a step back from blogging. I honestly have missed it. It is a much needed creative outlet. I wanted to make sure and post one last time in 2015. I don’t know why that was so important to me…perhaps a bit of closure on another great year.
I have spent a good deal of this month looking forward. My career as an educator in RL is going in a new and exciting direction…one I have wanted for a few years now. In SL I have taken on more administrative duties…my position with SCALA Models Management has been broadened, and I have come to work for my dear friend Wicca Merlin as her General Manager for Wicca’s Wardrobe. I still manage to get on the runway and show up in print from time to time, which I enjoy greatly. I never thought I would feel like the ‘old guard’ when it came to SL modeling, but I suppose I am. I have had my run at various competitions and actually have enjoyed being on the judging end of competitions this year. Things really have come full circle and I couldn’t be more pleased.
For many years in SL I have had my own homestead. I have enjoyed having it and sharing it with friends. I realized recently that I miss the interactions with others…the live music, dancing, and games that I had long associated with my earliest days of SL. I suppose I have never outgrown a longing for those sorts of activities and a sense of community, even when I thought I had. I decided to give up my homestead and move into The Grove and I couldn’t be more excited. I know The Grove has been around for quite some years. Friends of mine have lived there at some point, and I am glad to find a few that still do.
I was sorting my massive inventory when I realized I had nothing to wear. It sounded incredibly dumb to say that, but it was true. I have so many items from years ago that are just obsolete and I know I won’t wear. I have absolutely fallen in love with mesh bodies and I wanted to wear something that fit my Lara. So I managed to find something to wear and decided to hit my favorites bar, curious to see which SLurls still worked, since I haven’t been shopping in SL in a bit either. I first went to the Thrift Shop, or thought I had. It turned out to be the FROST Fashion Fair and I loved having a look around. I have no idea how many more days it is open, but I found a fair amount of goodies there.
