June 16th, 2010: HoneyBear Lilliehook

Today is just like the rest: Up at 4AM SLT, make coffee, log in, do some work for Glance, and start fielding IMs from models, designers, photography clients, apply for a couple of castings, and have a conversation over coffee with my buddy, Trouble Inglewood. I think once again about how much living in RL I’ve given up to pursue the “glamorous life” I live in Second Life.

I touch base with Axe Bikcin, my dear friend and sim manager, to be sure the sim is being taken care of and the tenants are happy. I talk to Gavyn Kirax, my BFF and remind him we need to get back on the scripts I need for our shoe line. He gently reminds me I haven’t finish my portion yet. Oops!  I realize I need to talk to Kristee Lane–the friend I’ve had since I was two weeks old–and sadly see the least, since my life has gotten so busy. Then a conversation with Patty Cortes, as we go over the details of Glance International Agency, and make the decisions necessary for the day.

Before I know it, it’s almost 10AM, and I realize that I’m still not dressed for the day, my coffee is cold, and I’ve made three commitments for the afternoon!

I sometimes think I need to leave Second Life – spending 12-18 hours a day inworld isn’t healthy for me, my marriage, and what few relationships I have left in the real world. We had family and friends over this past weekend – they came in, greeted me, and then went back outside to play on the boat and fish. I sadly realized that nobody expected me to be outside with them, so I logged and went outside.

I’ve spent the past month anticipating my third rez day today – but perhaps I’ll spend it in RL instead.

    I had no idea it was your rezday Honey, hope you had a wonderful time.
    As for trying to juggle both lives, I hope you’re able to find a balance which is good for both of them. It would be a shame to see you leave SL. At the very least stop waking up at 4am *shakes fist*
    xoxo

    I’m not going anywhere completely Elora – just working on that “balance” thing ;)

    Thanks :)

    Wow, I can SO relate, sleep sometime (most of the time?) becomes an annoying but required interuption to my SL. Sometimes I think this is what a junky feels like, gotta have my SL fix everyday or I get shaky and weird. But my hubby says as long as I am happy doing what I do, then its all good. I guess I do get a certain ‘high’ out of SL, but I don’t feel sad about not getting the same in RL. Some may think it sad, but I cannot do in RL the things I enjoy doing in SL and I don’t even wish I could. RL is what it is and has to be…SL is what we make it..and, of course, that is anything we want!!
    I’m glad I got to dance in stilettos for 4 hours at your rez day HB!!
