Can you believe it, Second Life is turning 16!!! With a 1950’s retro theme. So get those retro outfits on.
I remember when I first discovered this crazy land, back in 2003 when I saw something about it on the internet and thought I would have a look at it.
Back then, the olden days of virtual chatting it was very new and so different from all the chat clients that were around at the time. Messenger, Yahoo, ICQ to name a few.
Even back then I loved to find out who you could talk to around the world.
I made many friends from far off places and to this day I am still in good contact with people as far back as 1999.
But Second Life was something totally different and back then, even though my computer and dial up connection couldn’t handle it very well, I knew this was something very unique and I wanted to be a part of. Moving forward to 2007 my organisation advertised to us to join as they had a sim in there a brief period. I joined but struggled again as I had moved to another dial up connection.
Come 2010, I was there and haven’t looked back. Have never regretted and made absolutely some of the most wonderful friends I have come to know both inworld and out of the world.
So now we celebrate. I am not going to credit outfits etc in todays blog because I can save that for tomorrow.
Below in the credits you will find all the information you need to jump around to where you want to go.
HAVE FUN, DONT DRINK TOO MUCH, AND JUST REMEMBER, THERE ARE TAXIS SO SAVE YOUR FEET!
