I've Lost It!!

Seriously.....

I know as of this moment, I'm unemployed, mostly by choice....but damn.

If you're confused, I'll get to the point. I'm busy in SL....very busy. Don't get me wrong, cause I'm having alot of fun with new ventures, but....here's my SL.

I DJ as Crighton eight gigs a week, at two to three hours a show. I also run Marco Island. I also run The Savoy Jazz Club. As Aeryn, I have as shop that sells shapes and am looking at other possibilities as well. And my newest venture is renting skyboxes above mainland, however, this is small scale as of now. I do hope to grow the rental business, though.

So, what the hell? I enter into new ventures, and then wonder why I am doing it. Hmmmmmmm.

The DJing I love, since I truly love music. I had a great week this week, and by that I don't necessarily mean that my gigs were packed (some of them were,) or that I made alot of money (I did okay,) but rather the people that were there had a blast and I felt that I spread some joy. And that is what music is for me. If I can do that, then I'm very happy. :-)

Running the Savoy has been a joy as well, as it is music related. All my DJs, artists and hosts are exceptionally professional and I really don't have much to do, other than lead by example and give support. The actually work is minimal, for the most part. Running Marco Island is about the same, as the sim is fully rented as of now. The only real work is attending to minor issues like malfunctioning security units, and listing rentals if someone moves out.

Aeryn's shop and her rental business are where some work comes into play, as this requires some time and effort to get off the ground. I guess the worst case scenario is that if it requires too much time and energy, I'll bag it and move on. It's not like I really need this, but it is fun! :-)

The one thing I need to keep in mind is how this infringes on my SL relationships and friendships. Simply put, the people are what is important here, and if I can remember that, then I will be fine, no matter what the rest of my SL brings me.

Hey, who are you calling a professional? So I show up to work in my jammies or a robe with hair in rollers or even a towel. does that make me a professional? ;-)

You do what you need to do for you. I am proud of all of your ventures. Besides your friends are always here for you and willing to help if you need us.

So right, Cri... SL relationships are as important as any relationships. Some peeps will never get this idea, but if you put some time into your second life then that investment is just as valuable as other types of relationships. Good luck with your ventures. I've got to get back into the swing of things and head over there soon. So, see you soon. Hugzzz, Yordie
