2017 Spoonful of Sugar Event

The Spoonful of Sugar event is back for another year! Ran by Ever Courtois and Angelique Wickentower, the proceeds from SoS goes to Doctors Without Borders/ Medicins Sans Frontieres.

“MSF provides assistance to populations in distress, to victims of natural or man-made disasters, and to victims of armed conflict. They do so irrespective of race, religion, creed, or political convictions.”

The event started on March 18, and ends on April 1. If you are unable to make it inworld to participate, you can always make a donation to the charity here. Payment can be made using Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover card. I didn’t see anything like PayPal listed as a payment option. For more information about the event, you can visit the website.

Chop Zuey is one of the many stores participating in this event.

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.

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?
