So you’re walking along the beach, kicking at the sand and you notice a magic lamp hidden under a rock. You pull it out and rub it, because what else would you do with a magic lamp? Out pops a genie who is ready to grant you three wishes, any three wishes to do with your SLife.
Meme instructions: Share three things you wish for or about your Second Life. They could be things you wish from Linden Lab, things you would like to have inworld, things you would like to do, or any kind of wishes you may have. Remember to leave your link in this meme’s post so others can come by and read your answers as well!
1. I think, like Strawberry Singh, my first wish would be that Second Life® didn’t carry such a negative connotation eliciting visions of virtual pixel grubbing. I blog as a Second life model, but I write as a Second Life® model but also as a real world writer. Yet, I don’t think I could bring myself to share my blog with a real world client. Even though no man in Second Life® has been able to coax me out of my red sequined bedecked pixelated knickers thus far, I can’t help but worry the real life person would assume bouncing pixels was entrenched in my lifestyle and wonder if I would be up for a little late night phone sex. And it’s kind of sad honestly, in truth, a great deal of the population of Second Life® is much like a real world United Nations of Artistic collaborations of arts, ideas, music and words.
2.My second wish for a Second Life® is that people would learn to “play nice.” It’s very easy to be mean while hunching down behind a computer. Virtuality in some ways is a one-dimensional experience that doesn’t force a person to deal with the consequences of their behavior because the avatar doesn’t look their target in the eye or observe body language or general social cues that probably stop them from being mean in real life. I think oft if people feel insecure about themselves, whether it’s their body, their intelligence, or their personality, they try to thrust these insecurities on someone else to make THEM selves feel better. I detest cyber bullying of any kind and truly feel we need to address this, the life you save may be someone your know.
3.Number three! Boy this is harder than I thought it would be, I am way too structured in my Second Life. So I think, or rather, I hope, one day I stop to dance, to laugh with a pixel-headed “significant other”, just to get to know someone as more than just a friend. But…. I’m pretty shy and very pessimistic about virtual relationships, so not too sure this one will ever come true. Ah, well. Dreaming about happily ever afters and prince charmings are always so much more pleasing when they are defined by your own pleasures and fantasy’s. No?
Don’t forget! Tomorrow a new concept in shopping, Season’s of Couture will begin! The items I saw are incredible, if you can stop by tomorrow at 1PM SLT there is a fashion house style showing of the items on sale being done by Boulevard Model Management. And all items are limited quantities of 100, so when they are gone, they are gone.. I’ll even make it simple and call a taxi for you! I’m kinda nice like that. Taxi:
