Check bottom for expiry date.

Ive been kind of out of action for a few weeks. More real life work getting the better of me. Im slowly trying to get back into the swing of things, but with my time off Ive felt Ive lost touch with some people. I have no idea when things started to turn sour with friends. Is it the time? The older you get in SL the more jaded you become? I dont know.
I havent been on top of other peoples drama, outside of reading cryptic emo blog entries I havent had the chance to talk and find out things. Just the other day my card was cut. Since I wasnt the only one to get the boot I could only guess it was their solution to a bigger problem... a dramatic answer to a problem? Maybe. I was left with a sour taste in my mouth, on one hand I was worried about what happened with my friend...but I also felt a little betrayed. Was I really that easily disposed of? Knowing all the time we've spent together? Only they know.
But that got me looking at my friends list and I started thinking about who I actually talk to. Its kind of sad, Im supposedly out-going and talkative...yet I could count all the people who will say hello to me on one hand. I felt lonely, Posy told me everyone goes through it in SL.

When did SL become a job? Thats what Ive been thinking about. Even before I disappeared for my break all I tended to do was check how much money I was getting in. Log on to check IMs and make sure I was cashing out. I Really dont want to become that jaded hermit designer who sees SL as just another income point. I do like chatting to people, I like those weird geeky conversations. Like trying to remember the lyrics to old cartoon theme songs. - Like 'The Raccoons' ^_^; Discussing who would be best suited to play Kratos in a possible God of War movie...or if anyone saw the last Gekirangers episode.

People move on, thats the nature of SL. Time does move fast here and that speeds up the process of everything. Relationships, friends and fads. I just hope the next set of close friends I make dont have weird secret issues or have the flair for being a diva. Oh Oh... I also hope they have longer expiry dates.

/end emo-ish rant

Peace out pretty kitties!

I'm one of these people that barely say hello... to anyone lol.. I don't like to annoy people!!! Also I barely log on anymore, that might have something to do with it!

Anyway, we all do go through this like Posy said and it does make you think, and it makes you lonely, the one thing it ironically DOESN'T make you... is alone!

Anyway, back to having a baby! :P
