All Work and No Play
Makes Whiskey a cranky bitch.
I’m not used to having “work” in Second Life. Things like deadlines, collaborations, building things and people counting on me- I don’t mind these things normally, but lately it feels like that’s all I’m doing inworld. I’m excited about the projects I’m working on, don’t get me wrong. But they’re all happening at once, and they all need to be done yesterday.
Second Life is where I get away from pressure and work and stress. I’ve missed having my “play time.” Building sets and taking photos makes me happy. It’s my only real fun (cue the violins). So, when I start resenting the work inworld, I stop and take a fun photo. It doesn’t have to be complicated or deep- although even the simplest pieces can be those. Just something to remind me what I love doing. And it helps me to remember that these commitments, these little inworld jobs I’ve been working on, they’re tied into my photos, too.
But next time I sign on for too much all at once, someone spank me like a bad, bad girl.
