In an ongoing effort to bring my expenses in line, I’ve decided to sell my land on the mainland. It’s sad for me because it was the first land within the virtual world known as Second Life that I bought. I’ve had it since shortly after coming in-world. But, all good things must come to an end.
When I first purchased the land, I had big hopes for it, but I just never had time to achieve my goals. I needed the land for two things: prim count and to build houses. At 8560m, it certainly had the prim count and space I needed. I had intended to build custom and prefab Victorian homes. It was so nice to be able to build them within the confines of my shop. That room is 30m x 50m, so I can fit a fairly large build in there. But building homes to the quality that I demand is very time consuming. Therein lies the problem.
I just don’t have the time anymore. I work full-time, I am going to university and I got married last year. All of these take up too much of my time to devote to virtual home building. Besides, I’m just not very creative. My buildings are all very boxy. Ick. Yuck. That’s fine for an industrial-type Victorian Steampunk shop, but not for a fancy house.
Ah, such is virtual life.
