It occurred to me lately that I've been having fun learning new Photoshop things that all of my pics are looking very heavily Photoshopped. So here's just a raw snap of me in SL, no liquifying, no filters, no color balance, no curves, no blurring. Just me in my normal windlight.
Berry has another meme for us - Intriguing questions! I can't pass over the opportunity to talk about myself, so you know I'm all over this.
1. How do you deal with criticism?
I'm pretty good at hearing it if I feel it's coming from a place of actually wanting to help me. Criticism for the sake of just being an asshole...well, mostly I ignore that. Or I spread nasty rumors, have stores shut down, etc.
I'm kidding about that, btw.
Spending a good 10 years of my life in competition settings, I got really used to criticism. You have to learn to listen to it, weed through the bad, and get to the good. It can truly make you a better person.
2. What’s the most infuriating thing other SL residents do?
Hahahaha! Okay, kidding about that, too. [Don't you love my blogposts when I've gotten very little sleep?]
I think what irritates me the most is the resistance to change that so many residents have. They're so quick to think the worst about Linden Lab and Second Life, that any change, even if it IS for the better, throws them into a tailspin of crazy. I've been hanging out a little on the SL forums the past couple of days and the resistance to server side appearance/baking is hysterical to me because people are screaming that their SL is now broken beyond belief - despite the fact that they are either in a very old viewer OR not even on one of the sims where SSA/B has been implemented.
3. Which SL resident would you most like to have lunch with and why?
Aldwyn and Ulaa, of course! I'd love to spend even just an hour with them in real life just because I love them. But really, I've love to hang out with almost all of my SL friends at some point. I think it would be fun!
4. Who would you say is your “anti” role model? Someone who serves as a warning rather than an inspiration?
*laughing behind my hand*
Oh. Yeah. I don't name and shame.
5. What was something you used to enjoy, but was ruined for you?
Blogging some events. I won't say which, or why.
6. What’s something you want to do that you’d be embarrassed to tell other people about?
I actually would like a Zooby baby. I don't know if I'd want to do the whole SL pregnancy thing, but I'd like a baby and to decorate a nursery and play with the baby and all that stuff.
7. What’s the oddest term of endearment you’ve ever used or that someone’s used for you?
Hmm... I can't think of any. I call everyone sweetie or honey. Or booboo, BERRY.
8. Have you ever fallen in love with another SL resident?
9. Describe a time/event in your slife that you’re nostalgic for.
I miss when Cen was in SL, when we were always at the Viper Pit, hanging out and throwing parties, but before she started really blogging. I feel like a lot of things changed when she started blogging and getting more known. It wasn't her fault, but back when we were blogging in 2008, things were different because there were more of us who did personal SL blogs, not fashion blogs, and a lot of SL residents read our blogs. So then they'd IM or come by and she was very very open in her blog, and it led to some craziness. So I guess really from January to May 2008, that's what I'm nostalgic for.
10. What’s something sweet you’d like someone to do for you?
Pay my island for a month? *snickersnorts*
Mmmm... I don't know. Maybe custom make something just for me, or take a great picture of me, or send me something I've said I wanted. I'm pretty easily pleased with gifts.
