It’s about the width, not the length.

I don’t want to get to the end of my life
and find that I lived just the length of it.
I want to have lived the width of it as well.
~Diane Ackerman

The past months, I have been catching myself complaining that I just don’t have enough hours in my day. That if I had more free time I would not be Jack of all Trades, Master of None, but actually be a master of something! Then I also realized that when I do have free time, I don’t use it productively, hence not mastering anything anyway. So maybe I must just change my attitude and not look at what still needs to be done as a negative, but as an opportunity to enjoy the ride.

So to this end, I have enrolled in another course to improve my Photoshop skills,  bought more English books to read and lean the language.  I planned three weekends away for the year. Invited more people to my friends lists, RL and SL. Applied for another job and re-looked at my exercise regime. Yoga here I come.. soon I’ll be able to reach my ears with my toes (not sure if I’ll break something) and I’m planning on being a very happy busy bee.. who cares about being a master! I’m going to live my life in the width and have fun along the way.

What role do you wanna play?
I’m just a click away night or day
And if you think I’m not the one
Log off, log off and we’ll be done

Do you wanna date my avatar?
She’s a star
And she’s hotter than reality by far
Wanna date my avatar

– The Guilt

You KnowWhen I was still relatively new and was spending most of my time at The Shelter, we used to joke about ‘How you know you spend too much time in Second Life’. I know we all made those jokes but it was fun to revisit some of the reasons, so here goes:

1. When you look at your hair in the mirror in RL and think… omg, I’ve been ruthed!

2. You meet someone new and you have an overwhelming urge to look at their profile.

3. When you find yourself moving like your AO.

4. Thinking of clothing items you want to wear and not being able to remember if you own them in RL or SL.

5. You buy new furniture in RL and wonder if it will take you over your prim limit!

6. When you sign documents with your second life name.

7. Instead of laughing in RL you actually say ‘LOL’ or ‘sadface’

I’m sure we can all identify with this. let me know if you have more! In the photos I’m wearing another romper from 20.FIVE. In my opinion it must be my favorite so far. It fits my shape really well and I had fun playing around with different looks and had a hard time deciding on a final one.
