Girls Day Out

Shopping Spree Blog

Even after 12 years in Second Life, I’m still amazed how we get connected with different people from all over the world through this pixel creation.  Some of the people we meet in world become a distant memory.  Some we always remember but they aren’t a significant part of our lives.  And then some…some of the people we meet become treasured friends.

That’s what happened with this amazing woman next to me, Rina.

How we met is irrelevant because what matters is Rina has become such a dear friend.  Over the past few months, we have supported each other as we have both worked to manage school and life.  She has been one of the people who has been there to listen to me and support me on some of my worst days.  She has helped me celebrate the great days and my successes.  And on the routine days, we are usually talking about life, families, hopes and dreams.

The more I get to know Rina, the more I respect her as a woman, mother and friend.  She is one of those genuinely wonderful people and despite being in different parts of the world, she has become such a true friend.  I know a lot of people in life…both real life and Second Life…but the people who get to really find out who I am, the ones I trust enough to share those secrets we fear telling others because we worry about being judged?  No fear here.  I feel like I can share pretty much anything with her.  Friends like her are special and rare.  And I hope I have been that type of friend to her.

It took us a while to get our schedules matched up so we could do this collab.  We’ve been talking about it for a few weeks and yesterday, our schedules finally lined up.  The pose was perfectly fitting consider the number of times we have talked about going shopping together if we were to meet in real life.  And we just had a great time with this shoot.  Things went smoothly after we got through a couple of early, “What are we going to do?” moments.  After that, it was like we were on the same page for the rest of the shoot.

Although…I may take away your Animare for week, Rina… 😉

Seriously though, I really do adore Rina and am so grateful to have her as a friend.  I’m hoping we won’t have to wait as long to do another collab because this was just fun. ♥

Now don’t forget to check out Rina’s picture on Flickr or her side of the story on her blog, That’s Hawt, Second Life.
