Have I Ever in SL?

wy-with-her-grumpy-kitty

I decided to do Strawberry Singh’s “Have You Ever” meme!  I did delete the last 2 questions since I am answering as my teen avi and they weren’t really appropriate for her since she’s 14.

Best – Worst Meme

07-best-worst-meme

I wanted to do another of Strawberry Singh’s memes. This one is her Best/Worst meme. The instructions say to replace her last one (about french toast toppings) with one of your own.

Best thing about Second Life: It’s a great creative outlet. I can design clothing and choreography dances and so much more that I don’t have the RL skills to do in RL. I also love being able to meet people from all over and see all these amazing places without the need for millions of dollars.

Worst thing about Second Life: How people can act. Some people it gives them the freedom to be terrible and mean. However for some it can give them the freedom to really be themselves. So this one is a double-edged sword in my opinion.

Best thing in your inventory: Fire Extinguisher! From almost day one with my family I realized this would be a must have. Between my dad’s fire effects for his band equipment, firey farts, and random other fire effects I have actually had occasion to use this item more than once.

Worst thing in your inventory: A frying pan weapon. LOL I bought it for a one time use. It took me a year before I decided to voice with my family. When I did it I was a Toddleedoo and made sure to have my dad pick me up. I then put on the frying pan and said “Not the Momma!” Giggles. It was super funny. Dad started looking around and asking “who was that?” But everyone got the reference and now we have a cute story to laugh about. (If you don’t get the reference go to youtube and search “not the momma” it’ll be one of the top videos to pop up.)

Best earliest SL memory: My SL family finding me at the Heritage Adoption Sim. I was just standing there shyly and filling out my application when another little girl started talking to me. A little while later she introduced me to her aunt and uncle who were looking to adopt and we instantly clicked, despite my dad setting my new room (and mom) on fire while showing me his drums.

Worst earliest SL memory: My Dad setting my bedroom and Mom on fire with his drumset. LOL

07-best-worst-meme-closeupBest thing you learned because of SL: That it is okay to be myself! On SL it is a lot easier to be me and not have to filter out quite as much.

Worst thing you learned because of SL: How narrow minded some people can be. As well as how ignorant. I play a kid sometimes and it gets to me when people act like there is something wrong with me because I chose to play a kid instead of an adult. Each kid has their own reasons for wanting to be a kid again, there’s nothing wrong with it. This applies to me in my teen form as well. I just enjoy being younger, it can be a lot less drama and I don’t have to deal with people flirting with me. I’m not in SL for a relationship and this is a great way to stay away from that.

Best thing about blogging: I love sharing stories and my photos to go along with them. It’s fun to think others might see them and hopefully get a smile or start thinking because of them.

Worst thing about blogging: Well, I am bad at keeping schedules. So far I am doing great, but usually after a while it gets harder and harder. But! That’s why I made it a goal this year and am trying really hard to keep it going. It can also be hard at times to see no traffic, but on the other hand I’m not doing this for others, but for myself because I enjoy it and so seeing that even one or two people read it is awesome.

Best thing to do on a rainy day: Stay inside, nice and warm, with a great book or movie. It can also be fun to watch it at times.

Worst thing to do on a rainy day: Having to go out in it and be in all the mud. >< I don’t mind dirt, but really don’t like mud. LOL It’s just so messy!

That’s my list! What are your best and worsts? If you want to participate don’t forget to link it to her post so she can see it and add it to the flickr group she has.


sleepypandasIn other news! I have another new store release. This time it is a pajama set. There are four different top designs, two of which have a color and a black and white version. The shorts are the same for all four sets. Both the shorts and the tops have color huds so you can chose whatever color you like.

Bookworm

04-bookworm

This week I decided to do a meme from one of my favorite bloggers, Strawberry Singh. Meme link ♥

Are you a bookworm? – Yes, I listen to audibles at work and read another book during breaks and at home. I usually wind down by reading before bed.

Which do you prefer: hardcover, paperback or electronic? – While i still have a large library of print books, I love how portable electronic ones are. I can have hundreds of books on my phone to read so when I finish one, I always have others. Saves me from having to stash books in my work locker and the car or always having 2 books on me.

Which book is your favorite? – Rather than a single book, Naomi Novik’s Temeraire series is my favorite. I have read them multiple times and continue to love them.

Which children’s book is your favorite? – The Dragon and the Unicorn by Lynne Cherry

What’s the last book you’ve read? – Read – Jasmin Eve’s Walker Saga (I’m on book 3). Listened to The Breakers Series by Edward W Robertson.

Name your top five favorite writers: – Anne McCaffrey, Naomi Novik, Mercedes Lackey, Piers Anthony, and Tamora Pierce.

04-bookworm-closeupName a book that had a strong impact on you: – Any and all of the Anne McCaffrey books. I started reading them early in middle school and they made me love reading and writing stories of my own.

Favorite & least favorite book genres? – Favorite is fantasy and most of its sub-genres. Least, probably westerns and such. I don’t really read those.

Favorite & least favorite book-to-movie adaptions? – Least favorite was Eragon, I didn’t feel it followed the books quite right. Favorite is The Host, as one of my favorite books I love that the movie followed it almost exactly.

Have you ever bought a book based on the cover alone? – Yup. If its good cover art and looks interesting I will generally read the back and likely buy it.

Where do you usually buy your books? – Print ones in used stores and sometimes barnes and nobles. Electronic from amazon.

Do you go to the library? – I used to all the time. But since I’ve switched to mostly digital I borrow using amazons unlimited kindle program. Its still lending and def costs less than if I was buying all the books I read.

How many books do you own? – Print a couple hundred at least. Digital at least another 600ish. Audible another 50-100.

If you were to write a book about Second Life, which topic would you focus on? – Well I’m not a professional at much of anything since I am a dabbler. Maybe a book on the many things you can do and learn in Secondlife.

04-read-and-walkNo video this week, but hope you enjoyed learning a bit more about me!
