|Second Life, New Decade Studios and other related junk...

After almost 2 months of being on Second Life and not finding any quality people to chat with, I was about ready to call it quits. Seems that everybody on SL has their own group of friends they chat with, are not on at the same times as you, or want something from you, usually gestures or cool objects you've purchased or made yourself. These kinds of people add you to their friends list, but as soon as they get what they want, you never hear from them again. There's just so much shallow chat with people who don't hold the same interests as you and doing the same tired goofy gestures you can take before you're saying, "There's got to be more to it than this....?" Don't get me wrong. I've made a lot of nice friends on SL, some willing to hang out with me and put up with my quirky eccentricities, but only because they want to be there themselves, not that they find me or what I have to say anywhere remotely interesting.|
I also wanted to acquire some land I could build on without upgrading to a premium account or living in someone else's home, a place to call my own. After viewing several places with pre-built houses or apartments, and a few false leads to renting land on a friends sim (seems he was too busy building his own house to complete our transaction) imagine my surprise to find that a spot on the very island that I wanted to build on in the first place came to be available for rent. I set my "home" transport to a favorite beach on that sim, I couldn't believe my eyes when I TPed there and staring me in the face was a big "For Rent" sign. I was told that renting on that sim had a long waiting list of others wanting to get in. I guess I was in the right place at the right time. I'm putting my own art studio on the land, and a treehouse on the roof. There are two other art studios on the sim as well. Mine won't be nearly as cool and complex at theirs, but it's a start. I'm naming it "New Decade Studios" at SwiftFur's Nook based on an idea I had way back in middle school. So I've decided to stick around a little bit longer and see what happens after I get my studio up and running. I'd like to get on as a DJ at Club Rainbow Tiger or Club Bacchus. I have experience DJing before but not online (my major in school was radio and television broadcasting). And I'd like to meet someone interested in talking to me on a regular basis, not just in passing once in a blue moon.
Oh yeah, artstuffs. I'm currently working on those requests I took in my last journal. I'm very surprised at the warm welcome the new pictures of Bobbi have gotten! Thank you, everyone <3 I'm also surprised that I didn't have to limit my work for the requests, they were actually pretty tame. I thought for sure I was going to have to reject some stuff for being too hardcore. I'm also re-writing my characters bios, they were terribly outdated. I've finished Roxy's bio and am currently working on Bobbi's. I want to do some reference sheets of each character also, before I post them. I have found a cache of unfinished pencilled work that I want to clean up, color and post. So you'll see a bunch of new/old/never-before-seen work from me soon. I also have a couple of "Crazy Like a Fox" comics completed, just need to slap the titles on them and post 'em :P I'm also 1/3 of the way into the fourth chapter of "Crimson Fur" for fans of my written work. If you like my work, please write and let me know. It inspires me to continue bettering myself and, therefore, make better stuff for you :3
Take care all, and I'll write again soon ^^
