20 Personal SL Questions Meme

I figured I haven't done a meme in a bit and Berry's new one seemed pretty good plus it gives me a chance to take a pretty picture so here goes:

1. When and how did you discover Second Life? I discovered SL in 2009. I had read about it in a Dean Koontz book and then shortly after, I saw a True Life special on it so I decided to check it out.

2. Did you know about virtual worlds before or was this your first experience with them? No, this was the first virtual world I stumbled on. I was big on chat rooms before SL.

3. Has Second Life met your expectations? Yes, I just figured it would be something to do and some place I could meet some new people and it's been both of those things for me.

4. If you could teleport back to the first ten minutes of your avatar’s slife, what would you tell yourself? Just have fun and stay open.

5. How long did it take you to master avatar flying and driving vehicles inworld? Umm, I still haven't mastered them. I lag pretty horribly and am constantly crashing into things.

6. Do you have a mystery alt? Yes, I have a malt. Some of you know his name but mostly I use him to do things incognito.

7. Is your SL avatar a reflection of you, or someone you wished you could be? Someone I wished I could be. In RL, I'm not as outgoing. Due to self esteem issues, I tend to be antisocial. SL allows me to act a way that I only could in my imagination before.

8. Is there an individual you met in SL that inspired you in your RL? How? Yes, my oldest SL friend, Fox Post. He always keeps it real with me and tells me to embrace my RL instead of hiding on SL.

9. Do you feel it is easier to create stronger bonds/relationships with people you meet inworld as opposed to the real world? Yes, people don't judge as easily on SL I believe so you may wind up being friends on here with someone who'd never give you the time of day in RL.

10.Did you ever imagine or believe people could fall in love with someone they never met before Second Life? Yes, because I have fallen in love with someone I never met before I found SL. It's quite easy to fall in love with someone you spend countless hours talking to and building a connection with.

11. How has your perspective of dating changed (or not) since you started playing second life? Yes, people on SL don't have consciences sometimes in regards to dating. It's so easy to lie on here and I've experienced that so many times that it's skewed my trust in relationships both on SL and off.

12. How has your perspective of employment changed (or not) since you started playing second life? No, but that's probably because I'm unemployed on SL. I don't come online to make money, just have fun.

13. Name three things in both your lives that overlap each other significantly. Friendships, relationships when I'm in one, and emotions just in general.

The Spirit of Water

Dancing across the surface of the water...
She flows so smooth and free.
She leaps, spins, and twirls without a care...
Forming a wave of beauty and light.

Flowing smoothly on top of the water...
Nothing stirs while she performs.
Smoothly she flows in time to Nature's music.
Her dance is one of never-ending peace.

All are amazed by her beauty...
A true vision of the Spirit of Water.
Her dance never truly ends...
On this lake of tranquility.

She is found on every body of water...
Unseen by so many oblivious eyes.
She is only seen by those she chooses...
Her dance is visible only to a precious few...

Nature sees her every day...
But few mortals are gifted with the sight of her.
She is slowly dieing from a betrayal...
One that can never truly be taken back.

Today Was a Fairytale

Today was a fairytale
You've got a smile that takes me to another planet
Every move you make everything you say is right
Today was a fairytale

Today was a fairytale
All that I can say
Is now it's getting so much clearer
Nothing made sense until the time I saw your face
Today was a fairytale

Time slows down
Whenever you're around
Yeah yeah

But can you feel this magic in the air?
It must have been the way you kissed me
Fell in love when I saw you standing there
It must have been the way
Today was a fairytale
It must have been the way
Today was a fairytale...

To see what I'm wearing, keep reading.

Bittersweet Symphony

No change, I can change
I can change, I can change
But I'm here in my mold
I am here in my mold
But I'm a million different people
from one day to the next
I can't change my mold
No, no, no, no, no

Well I never pray
But tonight I'm on my knees yeah
I need to hear some sounds that recognize the pain in me, yeah
I let the melody shine, let it cleanse my mind, I feel free now
But the airways are clean and there's nobody singing to me now

'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life
Try to make ends meet
Try to find some money then you die
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
You know the one that takes you to the places
where all the things meet yeah 

You know I can change, I can change
I can change, I can change
But I'm here in my mold
I am here in my mold
And I'm a million different people
from one day to the next
I can't change my mold
No, no, no, no, no

To see what I'm wearing, keep reading!
