I swear, that’s the last time I’ll say it. It’s just cracking me up today. …could have something to do with the lack of sleep, but whatever…
So, I mentioned a few days ago that it was my rezday. I’ve been around SL for a year (plus a couple months with an alt that I don’t really visit anymore). In that year I’ve seen and done a lot- details of which we will not go into in this post. Something that has remained a bit of a mystery to me is the concept of “ownership.” /me chuckles to herself and moves on… I can spend money on my avvie and see it as *almost* reasonable, but I just couldn’t fathom regularly pumping money into virtual ownership. It makes sense if you’re a retailer or I guess if you’re a creator who needs work space, but the average avvie? Hmm… Well, I finally caught the bug. I think it stemmed from drifting away from the group I used to spend the majority of my time with, the fact that my someone lives half a world away and a wee bit of jealousy/curiosity created by the whole Linden Homes buzz. I started ‘looking’ for a place to call home on XStreet, online, in the SLassifieds and and asking my SL and Plurk friends for advice. And like any good impulse buy, I rented the first place that tugged at my ‘nesting strings.’ (Those are something like heartstrings, I think.) I now have a home for five weeks, love it or hate it. And so far (7 whole hours), I’m loving having a place of my own. I decorated it as best I could with my semi-limited inventory, snuggled into my new fav chair and have tea waiting for visitors.
Oh, and all furnishings came from PopArt’s 1L sale.
