As life progresses (first life, that is), and as Second Life progresses (with the 2.0 viewer), I unfortunately have to take a leave of absence from the virtual world.
As some of you know, I have been working my way towards moving, living, and working in New York City. Phase 1 is complete; I'm packed, and I've left for the big apple....
You would think phase 2 would be unpacking at my new place in Manhattan and getting right back into Second Life.... but, there is no phase 2 yet. Apparently I find myself in nomad/gypsy mode.... ok, let's just call it what it is... I'm homeless.
That's the simple truth.... I've left where I was living in South Jersey, packed up one bag of clothes, and traveled to NYC with no set home. Some people are congratulating me on this... some people say I have a lot of guts.... some people say I'm following my dreams...
I have to admit, I'm nervous and overwhelmed as hell. As I said on my facebook wall: "Either I'm going to eat the big apple, or the big apple is going to eat me"
With all that being said, I will be sparse in Second Life. I won't be available to DJ live inworld for some time until my real life has stabilized. I will pop inworld where wifi allows to check on things, try to attend events, and make sure my company Ravelong is running smoothly. And, I will be back, you can count on that.
And I'll leave you with this: Two 10 minute Electro House mixes. These were filmed simply to do it. I knew I wouldn't be DJing for awhile, and I was going to pack up my music and gear... so here's two mini-mixers for ya. Enjoy:
I may or may not take a break from this blog for awhile too... I haven't decided yet. I know I won't be in touch with what is going on in Second Life... but who knows.... maybe I'll still find interesting things to post about.
