The Heat is On

In the summer, it can be difficult to find a place to cool off luckily there are many ways in which you can escape from the heat and enjoy yourself during the summer. You can go swimming in the ocean or go fishing on a beach.

A quote from a famous book, very well written but what does it mean? Does it mean that everyone in the summer decides to go somewhere and just drop down and does nothing ?

For me this year, the summer was a little hectic, lot of things came around and even work decided to push me around the globe. So I didn’t get to do all the things that I had planned for these 2 months.

Luckily I have friends that always come up with the strangest challenges, sometimes even to the end of the world strange but that’s all part of life 😉 Now you might be wondering what these strange challenges were …

1) Skydive from a decent height, making sure you don’t crash into each other when you reach the ground.

2) Visit 100 regions and on each region leave a prim with your name on it

3) Host a Fashion show without any help from anyone

Now each of these ideas sounds nice but 1 of them stood out to me the most. Monica had to laugh when I told her which one, she said honestly that she thinks I would never have picked that one.

So, dear readers, you will be the first ones to hear that I will be hosting a Fashion Show in 2023 for The Fashion Loft.

Working title for this Fashion Show: “The Scare of your Life”

The reason why I picked that challenge and not the other ones, since 2018 I have been part of the journey of the Fashion Loft and I think it’s time for me to pick up the glove and actually do something that no one who knows me would ever expect me to do.

So, the upcoming months will be filled with lots of planning, I’m open for ideas.

Throwing some color

“Where did I leave all those paintballs … I wish my brain wasn’t this hazy at times”

When I heard about the event that Zaara was going to be hosting, I had to think back about the early days of Secondlife. Your hair getting stuck in your butt, region crossing that would eat you “alive” and of course the long waiting times when a region was filled to the brim with people that wanted to be the first to get an item that a store had put out.

Luckily this year Zaara was throwing an amazing party for those to wanted to celebrate Holi, a two-day Hindu festival that originates in India. Her region was turned into an amazing place complete with the paintballs and the water pistols who we sadfully weren’t able to use. At the end of the event I managed to take Monica to a spot in the Store that allowed us to sit down and relax.

The Journey begins

“Well, after a long period of time … it’s finally come to this day. The 8th of January 2022 is when my life changed”

This could have been the start of a long roleplay story but in reality it’s the beginning of my journey as a Mesh person. Many people have wondered how I got to this point in my SecondLife and asked me to document the journey.

“Hi, my name is Johan and I am now a Mesh person” would be the best first introduction when I met you on the 8th of January. Earlier that day I was pointed to the Belleza blog in which it mentioned that Jake, their male mesh body was on sale. Curious as I was teleported to the store and saw that it was nice looking and even came with a huge discount so my finger hovered over the buy button for about 1 second.

“Belleza Jake has been delivered to your inventory” the message showed on my screen, what have I started ….

In the upcoming blogs we will see how I find clothing all over Secondlife, maybe even find a mesh head that fits my shape. I wish to extend a big thanks to Monica Querrien for allowing me to document this through her blog.
