Longing For My Old Life

There’s been too much traffic in my world lately, mostly coming from my human. Only two weeks ago she was sick so I’ve been hoping she’d take it easy, but no.

Thanksgiving came on fast and we took off. And all the goings-on are still going on even as I write this. Christmas is looming just ahead and in between, my human is going away for about 10 days, even though not very far away.

Longing for my Virtual Fantasy Life

Yordie Sands - Exotic Dancer's Sexy Silks in Second Life 2012

I’m longing for the imperfect past. I’ve gotten out of the habit of visiting my second life, mostly because each visit is a tech nightmare (more below). I haven’t devoted enough time to friendships. I have a whole new world I’m entering but have only been able to prance along the edges.

I’ve gotten out of the habit of blogging. We’ve had some technical problems at iRez, but that hasn’t prevented me from writing. I’ve got so many articles I want to write for this blog. I want to revive my Homes & Gardens series. It’s time for another big adventure.

Second Life Tech Issues… Again

Second Life has become a technological swamp for me… again. I’ve been experiencing up and down performance for months, going from great performance to horrible performance. I’m running Firestorm on the desktop but get slightly better performance on my laptop running Phoenix. If I’m not crashing, I’m walking through a world of half rezzed objects, despite the fact that my broadband is three times (3x) the speed of my old location.

  2. I empathize with you on all fronts, Yordie. My time in SL is constantly diminished by RL activities first, then, once I’m in-world I find myself with only short clips of time to concentrate on the multitude of projects I have lined up for myself. Between balancing that with time out to support the endeavours of my friends, I successfully peck away at my “to do list”, but I invariably leave with both unfinished works and more new things added to it by the time I head back to RL again. It is kind of like watching water filling into your boat as you furiously bail it out at the same time. The hope is that I’ll either bail faster, or that the flow of incoming water will slow down. But you can never guarantee either, so just keep bailing. But remember to slow your boat a little. The water will always be there to enjoy. Whenever you have time for it. =)

      Thanks for your words, Dahlia. I’ve admired the way you have focus in your works. You’ve been very prolific despite all of real life’s draws against your time. Btw, I don’t even have a “to do list” … maybe that would help.


  3. aww Yordie… tech stuff sucks! 😛
