Since arriving in Florida, my human and I have been in a struggle. She wants to spend more time in real life and this leaves me less time to spend in my virtual life. Our struggle also leaves less time for my blogging.
Dealing With ‘The Season’
This time of year — the Season to be Jolly — is always a bit tense between me and my human. She wanted to spend Thanksgiving with family, and coming up she wants to spend Christmas with more family. In between, this past week she’s spent on the coast, leaving me with even less time.
Social Network Overrun
I mentioned this in the past, my social network revolves around my email. And this morning I was overrun by 75 new posts, on top of 150 already waiting for action. In desperation I delete most of the blog post notifications and all of my Facebook notifications. So, apologies to bloggers and Facebook friends who I normally respond, but please consider the holiday turmoil.
My Change of Life
No, I’m not talking about menopause. Geez! In the remote mountains of northern Idaho, Winter brought a snow cover that buried many real life activities for many months. That meant I could justify the large amount of time I spent in front of the computer. But here in Florida, my human is more engaged in the real world and this is the season where those engagements accelerate.
A Forced Slowdown
For the remainder of the year, I’m hoping to average three blog posts a week, two for this blog and one for iRez salon. I had to rewrite of my lastest Sex and the Virtual City post this morning, and I’ll need to wordsmith the post this evening. If possible I’ll publish it in the morning. I’m sorry I didn’t publish today as promised and this will probably be my final post for S&TVC this year.
Something Has to Give
I’m hopeful that once “the season” has passed I’ll be able to return to the second life I love to live. Nonetheless, each time my real life intervenes I find my hopes being pushed further away. I’m definitely in a conflict between my second life and real life. It’s not as bad as Dr. Strangelove yet, but it’s kinda headed that way.
