take the plunge

A couple weeks ago I attended a live presentation at BVN with the focus being on collaborating with others. During the presentation, it was announced they’d be offering a challenge for bloggers to sign up to be paired with a fellow blogger for collaboration. I signed up and was paired with Kurimu Kuma. She has a very sweet style and look to her avi and her personality reflected that. She was also very patient with my constant scene tweaking and the fact that I kept getting distracted with customers AND the fact that I called on her at a moment’s notice because I had to reschedule our original time. This was the fourth person I’ve collaborated with and I think I’m starting to fear it less and appreciate it more for the challenge and for connecting me with people I might not otherwise have met. I’m really happy with the way the whole thing turned out.

When I was looking for something to fill these shelves, it became apparent to me that I might possibly be a plant hoarder. Every time I see a plant at an event, I grab it even if I have two more like it already. I’m the same in real life – mini jungles in several corners of my house. They breath new life into the atmosphere and although there’s no need to clean the air in Second Life, being surrounded by them does still create a calming effect.

Stuck

This is me behind the locked gate of my irrational insecurities, second guessing myself and my abilities. See how easy it would be for me to just climb through the top bars? The brain is funny that way. But hey, at least I look cute! Thanks, SassyPants!
