Second Life has exactly zero chill sometimes, guys. I’m sure that any of us who have been around for more than five minutes have figured that out. And I suppose we all have our ways of coping with it while still sticking around the grid to hang out with our friends and fawn over our favorite designer’s latest creations.
I’d say I like to take photos. And that is true. I’m constantly playing with filters and lighting and shadows in world and out to try and come up with something that I love, but that’s not my zen. It’s something fun that I do here, one of many things I enjoy, but it’s not my zen. When I find myself stressed out, I like to write. Second Life has tons of ways to enjoy this sort of hobby. I blog, obviously, I roleplay, and I write for ECLIPSE Magazine. Writing is just a really wonderful way for me to get the things out of my mind that need to be out of there and put them somewhere that they can’t fester in the shadows. It’s my way of clearing and organizing my thoughts, expressing myself, and above all, it’s my outlet to allow the stress of the day to melt away.
I write a little bit everyday. Sometimes, it’s just this blog post – but that’s rare. Usually, there’s a poem or two, a little piece of fiction, a to-do list or two depending on how busy I am, ideas for new things I’d like to try for the store in Blender… it all goes down on paper (in a manner of speaking) every single day. Once you find that zen, there will be very little that will shake you, in SL or otherwise. You just have to find that thing you do that makes the rest of the world melt away and do it.
