Like most bloggers, I am a total platform hermit. I just don’t get out much and it usually takes someone dragging me off my platform to leave there. I know…its sad. I really need to work on that.
Thankfully though, I got pulled off my platform by friends twice yesterday.
The first was to give out candy to trick or treaters. Trouble, Minnie and a few other people set up this amazing Halloween area on their sim and had a bunch of us come over to pass out candy to the kiddies. It was the absolute coolest thing! I got all decked out as Morticia Adams and had a blast seeing all the littles come through in their costumes. I also had the opportunity to meet some great new people.
Meeting new people is always hard for me, even in SL. You would think that social anxiety wouldn’t come into play in SL…but it does. So to be able to pmeet people like Honey Bunny, Taylor and Wicca in a setting like that was really cool for someone like me.
After that, I got pulled off my platform again to meet up with Jessa. Now Jessa and I have collabed before…so no surprise she an I were getting together. Its always a blast getting together with her and last night was no exception. There were lots of laughs as we put together this set and then sorted through our dresses to figure out what to wear tonight. Certain friends fill certain spaces in our lives and each friend serves a very important purpose to help round us out in some ways. Jessa is one of those friends who does that for me, so be able to hang out with her for the evening was just awesome.
I’m grateful to those friends who pull me off my platform on occasion. Along with those mentioned above, Eria likes to pull me out to catch her DJ sets at Merge, as do a few other friends. Its so easy to let our nervousness about meeting new people keep us isolated on our platforms and at out homes. Its such a sad thing too considering all of the amazing people in Second Life.
Its always a nice reminder of how important those friendships and connections are. 🙂
