Most people come to Second Life to take a break from first life. They use it as an escape. I totally understand this because Second Life has been a lifesaver to me personally. When my world was falling apart a few years ago, logging in was one of the few times I got relief. No, it didn’t solve all of my problems, but it certainly helped me cope.
Sometimes people need a break from SL too. I rarely do, but if I’m working on something in real life, my virtual related creativity can get put on hold.
Like this blog, for instance. I usually post once a day, but this last week I haven’t. This is because I’ve been writing something related to real life, and I just got in the zone for that in particular.
I’m not sick of SL, and I’m certainly not tired of being around my wonderful friends. Lord willing, I will remain inworld til the cows come home – or at least until SL ceases to exist. Every now and then I may take a night off, though, and escape into real life.
