I, like many others, have an awesome comfort zone. The people and places that are like a blanket fort of safety to me will always have a space in my world but I am also a believer in the saying ‘if you always do what you have always done you will get what you have always gotten’.
I’ve made a conscious effort to do some things out of my normal routine, in both rl and sl, with mixed, but not unexpected, results.
I’ve visited Basilique sim several times but I’ve been meaning to get to some events there and as if my magic, just as I was thinking about the subject of doing different things and meeting different people a notice came out that a DJ was playing at Bar Moderna on the Basilique sim. Now, I have to admit, I thought I might know a couple of people that might be there but still, it was a step in the right direction.
I was correct in my assumption that the beautiful and talented Caity Tobias would be there at some point, and of course, the visionary Mayor of Basilique, Becky (Canary Beck) herself too. The DJ, Nikki, played a great mix of sultry, sexy blues tunes that fit perfectly with both my mood and the surroundings. I chatted to several new people and enjoyed the company and tunes very much. Going to a club in SL may not seem like a massive change, especially as I own one myself, but my club and the people that come to it are very familiar to me.
I popped back the next day just to get a couple of inside snaps of the club because it is very well textured and decorated and has a very chilled out and relaxed ambiance.
Caity dropped a lil giftie on me while I was there too. A pack of poses from her store Pose O’Clock which is based on the Basilique sim. There are 4 poses, with mirrors, in the Clumsy Iceskater pack and gosh, I had so much fun trying these out and they are perfect for this time of year!
I thought the picture above was the perfect representation for how I feel about making some of the changes I want to make in my SL and specifically in my attitude toward my Second Life. Going out of your comfort zone can feel like skating on thin ice. You edge forward slowly, not wanting to put all your weight down in one place in case you feel the ground under you buckling and giving way. I’m not going to dwell on the things that didn’t go so well with my change in attitude but yes, I fell down a few times but I’m not going to let that deter me.
