My Rez Day – 7 years in Second Life

I’m not sure why it seems harder to make this blog post for this rez day. Maybe because for some reason, 7 years in SL is a huge deal for me. I think it’s because when you do something for 7 years, that means that you have put significant time and effort into it. I think the next major rez day will be  10 years in Second Life (if I make it that long). 

I will say that I wonder how Sansar will impact my time in Second Life – I may not even want to stay in SL for whatever reason. There were people who were so gung ho about Sansar last year that it seemed like they were ready to leave SL right that instant. Also, there is real life to consider. I have seen plenty of times where changes to RL work, family, health etc. keeps people out of Second Life. I hope that I will always be able to make my own choices, and to leave SL on my terms if the day ever came to pass.

Do you celebrate your rez day? If you do, what do you normally do for it? If not, why not?

How many of you have done the Hocus Pocus hunt? I think this is a cool twist on how to hunt ^^ You visit any of the participating stores, and find the magic bottle. In most cases it will be near the front entrance. There is a picture of it on the website so you know what it looks like. After locating the bottle, you type “hocus pocus” in local chat. If you win, it gives you the item. If not, you can try again the next day, or just pay for the item outright.

Dog Days of Summer Hunt @ Blacklace sim

Hey guys! The Dog Days of Summer hunt is on now at the Blacklace sim. You will be able to look for seashells throughout the participating stores.

I tried to get a list of stores that were participating, but that didn’t work out too well. So I did the hunt myself to see how many shells I could find. Then I compared the stores to the stores that submitted something on Flickr, and I think there was one store on Flickr that I couldn’t find a shell for. They didn’t have a hint sign outside of their store either, so go figure.

Are you interested in modeling? Ways to improve your blog?

Hey guys! I know I have spoken to a few people about this already, but next month I will be teaching courses at Miss SL Academy! This is great for those who always wanted to learn how to model in Second Life, but wasn’t sure if it’s for them. Also, you will be able to learn (or improve on) a skill set that can be applied to every day Second Life. I will be holding sessions on August 4th  and August 11th. Those are two Thursday dates. There are other days and times too , but you would need to check the calendar under Academy – > Schedule.
