I know I’m late to this ‘challenge’ however I have good reason. I was busy SLing. Ha! Second Life is so much to me. My Real Life is just as vivid and busy as my Second Life and yet I find time to balance both because I love them both. That’s what is important. I love them both. My Second Life is filled with friends, fun, and laughter and I could never give that up. For a long time Second Life was a place for me to escape my Real Life and Role Play all the adventures I had always dreamed of. This of course led me straight to a Role Play SIM which sadly closed down just a month later. I couldn’t have my adventures taken away from me so easily… So I bought a SIM and turned it into my ultimate Role play SIM which would later be known as Mystara. Yes, that Mystara. Along my journey I met Annie Ibanez and together we opened Mystara. I’ve always enjoyed writing and Role Playing allowed me to do just that and interact with others. My Real Life at the time was incredibly depressing. I had a Boyfriend that physically, mentally, and sexually abused me, I was an actress and on tour in Broadway shows constantly, and I had ZERO independence. When I found Second Life I found a place where I could be independent. A place I could be safe in. A place I thought was only in my dreams. It’s no surprise I went straight to Role Play in SL and turned myself into a Princess who was respected, loved, and most importantly… cared for. I couldn’t believe how many friends I gained in such a short amount of time.
As my real Life changed, so did my Second Life. I gained the courage to leave my abusive boyfriend, quit acting (which I never really wanted to do), and take myself back to school to do what I truly love. Costuming. As my love of fashion began to seep into every part of my life it of course spilled over into my Second Life. My first look into SL Blogging was through a blog called, Juicybomb. Which happily still exist! I read her blog everyday and said, “I can do that!” except I just didn’t want to blog modern items. No. I wanted to incorporate my love for Fantasy and Role Play into my blog. So, 6 years ago I created this blog as a source for Role Players to come and find all the latest and greatest fashion finds for their specific genre. I was overly excited to show off all the incredible designs I purchased and eventually received as my blog grew in readership. Today is my 6th REZZ DAY and my Blog. This blog also turns 6 today. That’s partially why I’m writing this. My blog has been around for 6 years in SL and it has seen me through some hard times. This is where I come to express myself and to reach out to others who may be experiencing the same things as me. Whether they are experiencing these things in SL or RL, I still am able to communicate with them and let them and myself know that it’s going to be okay.
This blog is not only a creative outlet, but also a form of therapy. Soon, I’d find other bloggers who blogged fantasy, medieval, or Role Play items. I was overjoyed to be excepted into this community and I’ve made the best friends anyone could ever have. My circle isn’t so small and everyday more find themselves in this circle of love and friendship. Now, in my 6th years of Second Life I see more changes on the horizon. I’ve become an Event Owner, a Store Manager, and a SIM Owner and I’m hoping to expand my love for all things Fantasy, Fashion, and Fun with my best friends. My life is busy and sometimes stressful, but ya know what? I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Thank you Second Life for saving me.
