waves to everyone and smiles a bit on the shy side, though not completely
I am not really sure what to say about myself…
I am -very- new to SL Colonies…still an explorer, in fact…unemployed, just wandering around learning the bare basics. Not sure what I’d like as a profession, though I am debating farming, cook, or herbalist…even if there are already many in all of those fields. I have a soft spot for animals, love bees, and have always enjoyed pottery…so maybe it’s a calling?
So far, I have fished, crafted a clay pot, gathered some reeds, minerals, etc, relaxed around the fire, and spent a good deal of time using the compass to add ingredients to my modest inventory - not knowing what some are for, mind you…but…hey you never know what you may need and I’d much rather be prepared! (Ingredient hoarder alert! lol)
I have been an SL resident for a very long time - 2006, originally. During my time in SL, I have explored many different farming/RP systems, including: LIFE & LIFE 2, AURA, DFS, and beYOU, as well as a couple custom RP systems made for specific sims.
I enjoy roleplay quite a bit, my favorite being medieval. While I am not a historian and could not tell you who won a certain battle in…whatever year in the 1800s, I do love the atmosphere, style of dress, and how it seemed a much simpler time. When the world was not plagued by asphalt and pollution. I may not be the best roleplayer - some para RPers intimidate me, honestly,…but I do enjoy it to the best of my ability and cherish the interactions with others of like-mind.
I also love to fish! In every game I have ever played, I am always most exciting about the dang fishing, and can spend hours casting my rod into the water. I am a big animal lover at heart, and I also have a soft spot for children in SL, even though some have given them a bad rep. I promise not all SL kids have devious intent.
I enjoy games a bit, and shopping of course. I am not that great at greedy, but I will play. I really like Happy Cat, and more puzzle type games…also love to dance (yes even the more erotic ones in taverns, lol) When not in SL, I enjoy playing MMOs…currently, playing FFXIV online.
I am married - both in SL and RL, and in fact, my husband and I met in SL. A more common story now than it was even a handful of years ago…after two weeks of skype non-stop, he drove 1200 miles to deliver me to his arms, and that is where I currently and will forever reside, Gods willing He does still play SL, though not as frequently as I, since he works long hours most of the week. Still, you will meet him, I am sure, at some point!
Without going into too much detail, I can say that so far, I am really enjoying SLC. I appreciate its realism and attention to detail while remaining simple and user-friendly. I also appreciate the quality of the items and crafting stations, as well as the versatility players have when crafting items - Bravo, for that, honestly! claps The fact that a cook can literally invent their own recipe? Fantastic and unheard of in any other system I have experienced! While it does add a level of difficulty, not being able to ‘master’ every craft, it makes sense, and I truly do look forward to trading from others, as I meet you all!
I tend to talk alot, so I apologize if this intro is long-winded…but I really wanted you all to get a decent idea of who I am so that perhaps we can become friends and enjoy the journey together. I would love to interact with your colonies…perhaps take on a job if you need the help? Would love a mentor…and perhaps in future, if I become knowledgeable enough, I could mentor others. My husband and I may very well create our own little slice of the pie - we shall see…if he likes SLC, then most likely we will. In that case, we would love to form alliances and trade partners, if that is a thing!
If you would like to, feel free to message me in-world. I should be searchable…name here is same as SL, just remove the dot, in place of a space, lol. Thanks for taking the time to read and I look forward to knowing you all, as well.
