Love In The Time of the Internet

Love In The Time Of The Internet

I’m getting married tomorrow! Time flies, right? How did I even get here? I’ll tell you. It’s a story of love, loss, and life-changing events.

Two summers ago, I lost one of the most supportive people in my life. I was devastated and became very bitter and withdrawn for a while. Around the same time, one of my SL friends introduced me to her ex, Berathin. She had moved on to dating someone else, but we all remained a good group of friends. One day, she informed me that Bera’s mother had passed away the year before. I was still lost in the grieving process and reached out to him for advice.

We talked a lot after that. And of course, we grew to really like each other! Nothing was serious at first, but that changed over time. Where I’m fiery and short-tempered, Berathin is calm and rational. Where he loves Ancient Rome and the arts, I’m the artist who paints his fem-alt sometimes. Our differences come together beautifully; where they don’t, we get through it just like any other couple.

When did I realize I was in love with him? It was when I wanted to take a picture of our avs one day. He got his fem-alt to pose with me; while situating ourselves, I thought of all the ways he had positively impacted my life. It became overwhelming and I began to cry.

Snapshot.

We made plans to move the relationship into reality as soon as possible. When things were ideal for us both, he got a house and we proceeded to move in. It was hard for me to leave Detroit behind, but I had accomplished what I wanted to there anyway. It was just time to move on at that point.

Love In The Time Of The Internet

What are our lives like now? We have an office together where we work side by side and play pranks on each other. Our lives have been filled with adventure ever since we moved in together, and I’m looking forward to what the future holds for both of us.

Tomorrow is the big day. I’m nervous but excited! We’re having a small courthouse ceremony followed by a a nice reception with our friends.

Have you ever had a serious relationship in SL? Have you ever taken it to RL? Lemme know in the comments!

Pink Fuel has released two new skins! Here’s one of them, Sabine. She’s adorable and youthful, perfect for giving your Catwa heads a unique look. Go by the Pink Fuel mainstore and give it a demo!

Also, guess who won a Lelutka Bento head?

Simone bento head!

ME! This is my new “face” going forward. I’m wearing Pink Fuel’s Kiyomi skin in this picture. Having an Omega-friendly Lelutka head is exciting–now I can look forward to trying on a lot more skins and playing with different appliers.

SUPER thanks to Sophia Harlow of Blueberry for gifting me with this awesome head, and Gogo for nominating me to win it. 💖💖💖💖💖

I have more Bento mesh to show you in the future, including some fun avatars. Stay tuned!

SkiFree

SkiFree

That monster behind me in the photo was the definition of horror in gaming for a while. Before Five Nights At Freddy’s, before P.T., there was a game called SkiFree. The object of the game was to get a high score while skiing down a mountain. But once you got to the end of the map, a yeti ran out of nowhere, caught you, and ate you.

It became a mission of mine to outrun the yeti. It ended up feeling something like this scene every time:

RC Cluster just released a cool set of wearable skis. When I picked them up, I immediately thought of SkiFree again! I had to do this fun photo as a tribute to all of my times trying to outmaneuver the yeti and failing miserably.

Bento

Bento

Bento is here! Both official and Firestorm clients with Bento have been released now, so you’ll see a lot more people wearing Bento items around the grid. Everything from mesh heads, to tails, to giant avatars are already being released. Even Bento hands and AOs, which means you can have an animation override where your individual fingers move!

For this entry, I wanted to talk about a cheaper Bento head for those interested in Bento but not wanting to pay a lot of money for some of the high-price options out there. Lightstar is a smaller store but has released two great heads to pick from. As of this entry the price has been raised to 2,000L for each of them. Still, that’s cheaper than some less impressive Bento heads I’ve seen so far. The mesh head you’ll see in this entry is Lightstar Marian.

This Bento head is Omega-friendly, so you can wear all your favorite makeups with it. You can also purchase a separate expression HUD (250L) for about 29 different expressions. Here are some of my favorites:

Bento

Lightstar is a great option for those who want to look different but still use their favorite skins. I don’t like the default skins that come with the package, but once you install Omega it’s all uphill from there. Well worth the price to check out! Head to their store to pick up a demo.

Bento

There are soooo many new Bento things I want to check out and feature here! I’ve got my eye on Medhue Animations’ elephant avatar, and I’m waiting for the attachable Bento horse coming soon from Water Horse. Organica is also working on a wearable wyvern!

Have you purchased any new Bento items yet? New heads? What’s your favorite so far? Lemme know!
