Here are some cool things from Anthem. Go to Anthem, ok? Ok.
I’ve been feeling in a bit of an SL funk lately, and I think that’s probably a good thing. Granted, I’m still not being as active elsewhere in my life as I would like, but generally, a lack of interest in all things SL equates to a more healthy mindset for a Pickle like me.
I’m not entirely sure what’s doing it. Admittedly, I no longer speak to many people – I just don’t have time for polite BS of “Hey how are ya?” when people are gonna turn off the computer and forget my existence, and I much prefer to lean towards talking about subjects that means something to me – whether that leads into a debate (not an argument, fools, there’s a difference), or a more general let’s just hang and talk shit for an hour conversation, but that seems to be an effort for the people i’ve recently been encountering. I left my platform and wandered to a beach a couple of days ago, I put on my bikini, and actually reached out to people with interesting profiles or avatars in an attempt to connect. I left with zero new friends, one newly blocked resident, and the feeling of it all being a bit of a mistake. Secondlife has become somewhere for me to realize that I might be lonely sometimes, but it’s no longer a place where I enjoy the attempt at connection because it just leaves me disappointed, feeling less than and mostly just sad. It seems like there’s this aura of BadBitch and Fuckboy, and maybe that’s entirely my projection on the community, but when all you want is a friend, trying to break down those walls with humour and conversation just feels futile.
That being said, I will be eternally grateful for the people I have met here that have stuck around, and also for the creative outlet it provides me, so you’re not getting rid of me just yet. Sorry, not sorry.
Make it a beautiful day, Spoonies. You deserve it. xoxo
