My Black Friday Finds

Okay – I have decided to show you guys some of the stuff that I have been getting for these Black Friday sales. Shopping is definitely therapeutic. With the exception of Blueberry, it was nice just teleporting from store to store and then walking/camming around to try on and buy items. Second Life residents get all the craziness of Black Friday every time we try to get into a new event round…sometimes I wonder why do we do this to ourselves.

I spoke with one of my cousins in RL and she said that she didn’t feel the need to shop just because it was Black Friday. She has everything she needs, and doesn’t need a lot of stuff. Bath & Body Works had some sales prior to Thanksgiving, so I bought some lotions and hand soaps. Could I had lived without them? Sure. But since I look at their items throughout the year and wonder how a certain scent smells or not willing to pay $15 for an item, then Black Friday (and similar sales) would be the perfect time to get them. The same applies for Second Life. And store owners, take note: If it wasn’t for being able to look at a store’s Flickr stream to see what what they have, I wouldn’t had bought as much stuff.

Hey guys! If you haven’t been to the ForMax fundraiser, you have until October 10th to attend.

What is the ForMax event?

This event is to help raise money for the owner of Rustica, Maxwell Graf. He told people through his social media about what he was going through, and to please buy items from his inworld and marketplace stores. a number of content creators got together and organized this event to further help him.

ForMax can be found on Facebook and Flickr. There is also a tip jar at the landing point where you can donate money. At the moment, over 220,400L has been raised.

I hope you will all stop by and see what you can do to help – every linden helps 🙂

My Visit to Sansar!

Hey guys! I just got word not too long ago that Sansar was now in open beta! Strawberry Singh has a lot of useful information on Sansar – I recommend watching the videos before downloading the viewer. The avatar and camera controls video is very useful – too bad I didn’t watch beforehand!

As you can see, Sansar is similar to Second Life in that people still haven’t learned to move off the landing point  😀

Does Anyone Have a Landmark?

Picture this. It’s the first day of a new round at event X. Your group chats are filled with people asking for landmarks for event X. Someone gives them the SLurl for the event. “Oh no, I need a landmark for my HUD to work.” They need to know where the event is, and they have it – but it’s not good enough for their HUD. Now, when you look at Seraphim, there are a ton of events happening at any time. Since August rolls in tomorrow,  I am going to do all of you high maintenance people a favor….

Has Second Life Modeling died?

Hey guys! I think I may have to start blogging in the mornings because otherwise I cannot stay in this hot room for long to get much of anything done…smh.

I saw on Facebook a video that Crista Wellens had made regarding the state of fashion modeling in Second Life. It is the first episode of her venture into vlogging, and I thought it started off with a bang. She makes a statement in saying that “modeling as we know it in Second Life is dead”, which is enough to stir up some emotion in those who are professional models in SL.

I was challenged by someone to do a reaction blog to this video, so…challenge accepted!

Some Thoughts on Commitment

Considering the fact that there were several events before and after our show, I was happy to see that we had at max just under 40 people at the sim. Since I got a lot of positive feedback from the last time I shared my thoughts, I thought I would share my sentiments on my recent experience.

Are you making yourself feel tired without knowing it?

On Thursday (March 23) I attended a workshop on self -esteem at Model’s Workshop. A good portion of the workshop centered around us analyzing several holograms created by Janosh.
“Janosh’s work is based on Sacred Geometry, which is a code language that your subconscious understands. It has helped thousands of people to change their behavior and beliefs and find their purpose in life. ”

We were asked to pick which one(s) we found most interesting or resonated with us. After we picked a drawing, we were then told what it meant. The hologram that I picked spoke to “Release“. The affirmation that went with it was “I let go of everything that restricts my growth.” I felt the hologram resonated with me because it reminded me of something from biology, and was intriguing. If you look on the website, they have a number of holograms, so I am sure one of them will “speak” to you as well.

New Profile Pic!

Hey guys! I am sure that some of you have noticed that I switched over to wearing a mesh head around the end of last year. After Bento came out, I felt awkward not wearing a mesh head when everyone around me were happy with the new Bento heads and seemed to adapt fairly easily to it. Even though I wasn’t a huge fan, I started wearing my Kori head from Catwa just so I could start getting used to things. You can see those photos towards the end of the year…one day I just went, “Eff it!” and started wearing my head.

After a good friend gifted me the Catya bento head from Catwa in January, I used the shape that I was working on for the past month to help finalize my shape. I do not like the fact that some face pixels are missing in the demo. It’s hard to get an accurate feel of the head unless you make the plunge and buy the head. Some people may sneeze at ~$20 USD, but I am not one of them. I do plan on getting a Lelutka head later this year, because I liked that one as well.
