Why is it that you are not allowed to say anything that may be percieved as being negative without hearing “SL is what you make it,” at least 3 times. “Great insight, tell me something I do not know?” I am at a place right now where I do not feel like spending a lot of time in SL. I mentioned this to someone this morning in these exact words. “SL is boring.” The retort: “SL is what you make it.” Not once, but twice I was told this. As if it is not acceptable for anyone to be bored with SL.
First of all, I see my boredom with SL as a good thing. If SL is boring to me then I waste less time there. I have always struggled with balancing my RL and SL. That is not an issue for me right now, so to me it is a good thing that SL is boring.
“There is plenty to do in SL, you have to find things to do.” Why would I want to “find” things to do in Sl when I can “find” more meaningful things to do in RL? To me, right now I am in the perfect storm. I am not struggling to find balance between RL and SL.
Furthermore, there are only 2 reasons I log into SL, and they know who they are. I am just in a place right now where I am not going to log on and wait around for them to log on. If I see one of them online, I will log in and say hi, but I am not going to hang out in SL all day waiting for them either. If I get a chance I will chat with my other friends while I am there, but I am not going to hang out just for the sake of hanging out. I hope no one is offended by this blog but it is my blog and this is how I feel right now.
