April Already?

I thought I’d better post something to let the world know I’m still alive!

I ended up taking time out for most of March, both from broadcasting duties on Gorean Whip Radio and activity in Second Life generally, while I took care of my physical and mental health. A combination of sinus infection plus poor sleep had left me pretty frazzled, so I decided that sorting that out took priority over everything else. The time off ended up doing me a power of good, not only because my health has improved, but because I now have a lot more clarity on where I’m going and what my priorities are.

One side-effect of that is that I won’t be chasing after DJ-ing opportunities at big events like the SL Sci-Fi Con or SL18B. I will do coverage of events for Gorean Whip Radio when I’m able, and the good news is that the station is once again part of Sci-Fi Con 2021, meaning I’ll be doing a live walkabout around the event sims. 🙂

I do have one special event coming up soon — on Sunday 11th April I’ll be at BURN2 once again for their Burnal Equinox event, and that’ll be dual-streamed to Gorean Whip Radio. I’ll post the show recording plus a photo gallery afterwards.

In other news, I managed to snag myself a Catwa HDPRO Queen mesh head, which was briefly on sale for just L$1! It took me a while to get it setup to my liking, in part because my custom avatar shape caused it to break in a few places, but I’m pretty pleased with it. The best part is that the ears move by themselves, and unlike the old mesh ears from Stargazer Creations that I’ve worn in the past, they support Bakes on Mesh. 🙂

I’m also looking to reduce my monthly expenditure in Second Life, so I’m going to drop my Premium account in the autumn when it comes up for renewal. I’m now down to about 30 groups, and focussing on roleplay and events over shopping, so that won’t be a handicap for me. It does mean I’ve given up the houseboat Premium Home, which is a shame, but I can go elsewhere for sailing.
