On Hiatus

As the title says, I’m going to be taking a little break from Second Life to focus on some real life issues.  The blog here will be on hiatus until I return.  Until we meet again…

Exodus

It seems Facebook is feeling froggy again and doing mass evictions of SLers’ profiles.  So what’s the social network of choice for avatars these days?  2nd Hub.

I abandoned the FB ship yesterday before they could close mine down and created my 2ndhub profile. (So There Facebook!)  You’ll find it here.

2ndhub is specifically geared for SecondLife avatars and has seen a huge influx of new accounts in the past two days due to FB’s douche-baggery.  You’ll find most of the same features, with the ability to “like” and create business pages and groups.  There are event listings, mail and even live chat.  I actually prefer the 2ndhub page layout to that of FB.

In addition, you “verify” your account by using your avatar to click on a kiosk inside SL to avoid the faux-page issue.  Nice touch.
**edited to add because it was somehow left off in publishing:  2ndhub also has a nifty little HUD you wear in SL that lets you know about friend requests, posts, replies, etc. so you can actually enjoy SL and not be flipping back and forth to your FB page.

Its been well over twenty years since the last time I stayed up all night cramming for a big college exam, but that doesn’t mean I ever stop learning.  I’m a knowledge and trivia junkie, constantly ordering how-to or For Dummies books, researching things online or picking more knowledgeable friends’ brains.  I would have made an excellent professional student.

 

But even I need study breaks occasionally.  Not the kind where you just run to the kitchen for iced tea and a snack, but the kind where you have to do something completely off-the-wall because your mind is so numb.  I’m relieved that back in my college days everyone didn’t carry cameras in their cell phones to capture some of the moronic things my friends and I got up to during finals.

 

Back in SL, I’m hugging myself with happiness at finding this super-cute dress at Cool Beans.  After taking this picture, I went back and got it in another color as well.  AND LOOK!  I pried my toesies out of my Baby T’s and into some peep-toed, sling-back Maitreya shoes that have been gathering dust in my inventory.  Now I just need to do the same thing with my skins.

Blinded by the Light

I had a whole post typed up in draft that I just scrapped because in review, what I thought was a frank discussion came off a little whiny.  I don’t wanna be that kind of blogger.

Instead, I’ll just pose the question, “Why do avatars still wear facelights out in public?”  I understand using them in photos with dark lighting settings, I do it myself.  But while out shopping or clubbing, don’t they know that instead of highlighting how glamorous they are, that they are actually just a glowing blob to everyone else in the SL universe that uses the proper WindLight settings?  Just like bling, facelights are out of fashion.  Drag yourself into 2011 and Just Say No!

Pondering this important question.

No Pressure…Really

A blank white page.  The cursor blinking impatiently, waiting …blink…blink…blink.  Its like standing at the edge of a cliff looking out into a vast horizon of possibilities.  So this is me, closing my eyes and just flinging myself out into the blogverse once again.

What’s it all about?  I’m glad you asked.  Its about returning to a virtual world known as Second Life and my experiences of places, music, shopping, and friends.   Its about satisfying my Photoshop obsession and furthering my education of editing techniques.  Its about everything and it may be about nothing at all.  Its a place where I’mma be me and if you’re along for the ride, it might be about you too.

I’ve been spending the last few days back buying a new plot of land and building myself a new skybox/studio.  I went completely opposite of my usual style of bright jewel tones and decorated in some soft pastels.  Is this the beginning of a kinder, gentler Kai?  *snorts* Get real, its just a reflection of how I feel at this point in my life.  At peace.  Calm in my mind and soul.  I’m liking where I’m at now.

While I was away from SL the past few months, I’ve been following my sistah’s blog, Super Gangster, and watching Bubbles have so much fun putting together looks for the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge.  I wanna play too!  So this week’s color is Umber.  Umberrrrrrr.  Hmm, my wardrobe is seriously lacking in the brown shades, but I was able to pull one off and get a picture taken early this morning.  If I’d had my necessary pot of coffee, I might have remembered to grab the SLURL for this sim.

I completely forgot to record styling notes.  Maybe I’ll remember next time.
