Happy New Year!

Hey beauts! I hope everyone had an amazing holiday and celebrated New Year in style. I’m currently nursing a chronic hangover lol but it was definitely a good night.

Happy New Year!

I thought I’d recap on my post from last year where I made some goals to see if I achieved any and talk about my last 12 months in Second Life.

Goal 1: Buy a new house – I did this! I’m now bored of said house and it didn’t improve my lag situation much but hey lol.

Goal 2: Give more – I think I did achieve this but maybe not how I first intended. I have definitely been generous in giving to charitable causes and such but in joining the community that I found (more about this later) I gave so much of my time and dedication for all sorts of projects and loved every second.

Goal 3: Spend less – let’s not talk about this.

Goal 4: Stay in contact with friends – I think this was achieved! I went from platform hermit to social butterfly and although sometimes it’s difficult to keep different friendship groups happy I think all is well.

Goal 5: Find new roleplay – Not so much lol but it was made up for by everything else in the past year!

Goal 6: Connect with other bloggers/vloggers – Can’t say this happened either but this is probably due to the fact I became involved with other projects and blogging was put on the back burner.

I didn’t do too badly! So let’s talk about 2017 in Second Life…

I actually took a bit of a break in January and returned around April time, just pottering about doing some shopping and hunts. One day I reconnected with my fab friend Solsty, she sent me a TP to join her at the beach and boom. From that day my whole SL was turned upside down.

It’s not often I feel instantly accepted by a community but with this one, it was almost instant. I love surfing and had surfed in SL before but I was introduced to a whole other world. Since then I’ve made sensational friends, became a photographer for SurfWatch, partied hard, got involved with huge events and even competed in my first surf comp.

It’s been a wild ride for sure and I want to thank you all for being a part of my life.

What does 2018 hold? More of the same I hope. I’m planning on competing from the start of the next surf comp season, I plan on working on the media side of things to bring interesting and unique ways for the rest of Second Life to see surfing and the amazing community that surrounds it.

And as always I’ll continue to take photos because that, accompanied by music, is my greatest escape.

5 Years in Second Life

5 Years in Second Life

Happy rez day to me! Today I’m celebrating 5 years in Second Life!

It’s definitely been an interesting ride so far and I’ve experienced many crazy and amazing things. From attending a university to train as an RP doctor and being a varsity cheerleader at school to fashion blogging and starring in Paradise Lost with the Basilique Performing Arts Company. My avatar has even been projected onto a floating sphere in Hollywood whilst she danced!

After seeing others do the same, I thought it would be fun to create a collage of my avatar through the years. She has certainly gotten paler! It seems 2013 and onwards I definitely acquired a signature look.
I had a passion for taking photos pretty much from day one and have worked hard at improving my photography ever since and I’ve spent many a pretty penny on machines that can run Second Life to it’s highest standards!

I’ve seen many friends come and go, some devastating losses and some not so much. But more notably, I met my best friend here and in November 2015 I experienced my first ever flight when I travelled across the world to stay with her, meeting another wonderful friend in the process! Who’d have ever thought I’d be able to say that five years ago?!

I’m excited to see what the future holds for me in Second Life. After my long hiatus, I’m definitely excited to get into blogging again and will continue, as always, to explore current trends and stay up to date with the ever changing and improving quality! I hope to get back into dance and performance and I look forward to joining the Second Life YouTube craze!

And finally, thank you to everyone who follows this blog and has been there for much of the ride. I appreciate every single one of you and I hope to bring you many exciting and interesting posts in the future.
