My Second Life

"What is Second life?", you may be asking yourself.
This is taken right from the second life website.
Second Life is a 3-D virtual world entirely created by its Residents.
Since opening to the public in 2003, it has grown explosively and today is inhabited by millions of Residents from around the globe.

My Birthday on Second life is 5-15-07. That is the day I entered Orientation Island to begin my journey through second life.

Second life is a fantasy world. A place where you can live out almost any fantasy that you have ever had. You can be a superhero if you want, or ride a dragon or even be the dragon. lol whatever you imagine you can do in Second life.

The Picture on the far left of the page is what my avatar looked like after going through the part of orientation island where you learn to edit the appearance of your avatar. The next picture is what she looked like after a couple of weeks, but I was still not pleased with her appearance.

I wanted my avatar to have dark skin, and black hair like mine. I wanted her to look like me, but to be honest, I didn't want her to be big like I am in real life. After all this is my fantasy life, right? In my fantasy I should be able to look the way I want? Right?

All the pictures on the left are pictures of my avatar as I became familiar with second life. It took time, but I learned how to edit my avatar's appearance. I created my Lizzie avatar to learn more about editing the avatar's appearence without destroying the face I'd given her. I think she has become a very attractive avatar. Lizzie has a different look then Poli and she leads a different life then Poli does in Second life.

Poli has become a builder. She has built a small one room house, a teepee, a pool, a leafboat and a sculpture. She is working up to bigger and better things. She is also learning how to make a poser balls. Poser balls make it possible for your avatar to sit, lay, dance, cuddle or anything else you want them to do.

In Second life you can own land or rent an apartment or house. The small cabin, below was the first place that
I rented when I stayed making money in Second life. The currency in Second life is Linden dollars. You can earn lindens by getting a job or by "camping". Camping is a way to make linden dollars without having to spend real money to buy linden dollars. There doesn't seem to be as many camping places in Second life as there were and you don't seem to make alot of linden's like you use too.
