Oh. Hello there, gentle viewers! *puts down
crack tobacco pipe*
It’s been about two and a half years since my last post here, and in that time, so much has happened that trying to explain it all would be exhausting, and as far as reading it? Ain’t nobody got time for that!
I have a plan to document, over a couple posts coming soon™, the evolution of my time in Second Life since my last post here. Sure, there have been other blogs. There was a tumblr, and a group blog, a blog where I guested, and a whole lot of Flickr ‘micro-blogging’ – but none of these venues ever felt like home, and never captured what I felt like I had here on The Bunny Girl. This was my soapbox, my pride and joy, the culmination of all my false starts and stumbles through Second Life. I took great inspiration from JuicyBomb, Alicia Chenaux, and Strawberry Singh. I didn’t want to just blog about clothes. I wanted to editorialize. I wanted people to know me. I worked hard to develop an individual style (with pictures and with clothes), and sometimes that style was really, really, REALLY bad.
They say you can’t go back, you can never go home again, that looking over your shoulder makes you miss important fresh opportunities. They may be right about that.
I prefer to think that looking back can be helpful. Getting back to your roots can give you a fresh outlook, put you in touch with old friends, and even spark new opportunities that would have been missed by only looking forward. The past has a lot to teach us, and our home can reveal things about us that we had forgotten or never saw to begin with.
I look over my old entries on this blog and feel affectionate and a little exasperated towards three years ago me. She was a little dramatic, a little ridiculous, a little self-absorbed. (I am probably still all those things, but allow me some “I just turned 30” pomposity, please.) Three years ago me was scared and alone. Three years ago me did not use the Oxford Comma as faithfully as today me does!
This rambling does have a point, I think. I want to ‘Reboot My SLife’ and find new joy. I want to rediscover old hobbies and friends, and re-experience the things that made Second Life so magical for me back in the day. I am creeping up on five or maybe six years of second living now, and coming back to my favorite venue to discuss my continued adventures seems like nothing short of utter brilliance on my part. This blog is familiar, comfortable, old school, and I just plain like it.
Plus, this blog gets lots of hits from folks looking for bunny girl porn. =P
