September 14th, 2010: Ashe Anthony – Cont’d

3 days from today marks an anniversary. That day, 5 months ago, I made a big leap and stepped out of my comfort zone. I moved into Dork Street. Dork Street is a place in SL where you have neighbors all around you that are friendly. I have always been a solitary person who always lived in a skybox above where I was renting previously. I was always there, never really spoke to any inworld friends because I’m too shy to IM them for having a fear of disturbing them.

At the time I moved in, I was unsure where I was going in RL. I knew that school was falling apart for me, and I tried to run from this reality until it all crumbled a few weeks later. I was sure that no one wanted to know the truth, because it was shameful. Adding on to that, I agreed to move into a place with people that I was vaguely familiar with in SL. I started to doubt myself for actually wanting to do this.

During my time here, I have to say how surprised I was able to quickly become attached to them and have them as a light to my SL and also, RL. I still have my days when I feel like a loser, because of how school fell apart, but I am always reminded by various people that I shouldn’t let a circumstance define me.

I have been given ideas on how to change things in life from amazing people, and also have the company of these people to my left, right, front, and back. As I slowly work to get back up again, I know that I wouldn’t have as many people kicking me down, and that I can do things right this time. I have a sense of direction for RL now, the only factor is time. I’m so thankful for living where I live, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
