LTD Magazine Page on FB asked: “Do you have a Home Office in your Second Life house? If so, share some pictures with us in the comments! We would love to see your work spaces!”
I had already snapped this pic a few days ago and I can totally wing it and say ‘yeah, this is how I SLive everyday. This is where my avi sit to blog. This is where I sit down to write my Notecards.” And y’all will laugh at me because you know it’s not true. XD I do like this setup and I might keep it for a few more days, and actually live in it. There’s even a daybed there, so why not?
Wanna hear a story? I totally forgot I had this scene set up on my land.
This room was decorated nearly a month ago, while Summerfest was on. And then, as usual, I completely forgot about it because I would have started yet another decorating project. I love decorating so much and SL is a great place to exercise this hobby. So much so that my attention span when it comes to decorating is about 5 seconds. LOL. I usually have 3-5 different scenes rezzed at any one time, on several metres up, that sometimes I can forget what I have and what I don’t have. Because come on! SLife is too SLhort to only have one build rezz at a time, amirite?
And this build would have continued to be forgotten if Mun hadn’t decide to come live on my land. While I was rezzing her platform in the air, I saw this build that looked familiar, so I cammed in and….
…found a project I was working on a few months ago….
….halfway decorated and all the way forgotten. ;____;
A thought occurred to me. I raised my draw distance to 200, flew 4000m up and just ‘fall’. And sure enough, every few hundred meters are some other clutters I rezzed and forgotten about. A few were random little items I forgot to clean up, but mostly there were fully decorated rooms that I abandoned. Probably because I TPed out in the middle of decorating to shop or some such.
Long story short, I had so much clutter in the sky, it was borderline insane. I also found several builds that I forgot I had…
…so I cleaned up and freed nearly 800+ prims on my land. Good Lord.
A few months back, I decided to sort out my Inventory by doing a ‘Nath Pevensey Style’ cleanup. I don’t remember where I found out about his idea…maybe Plurk? Maybe his blog (though I can’t find reference to it now). Basically, Nath’s idea is this: rezz everything new on a dedicated platform (skybox, a plank, whathavesyou) and leave it there til you have blogged it or sort it out. And I think that’s a great idea!
NOT SO MUCH IF YOU HAVE DISCIPLINE THE SIZE OF A GNAT THOUGH. (Like me!)
In hindsight, one should not attempt to practice this great idea during Arcade season when one is an Arcade Gacha addict. It was successful for the first few days. I even had color-coded planks–“things I don’t know what is in there”, “gacha stuff to open”, “gacha stuff to trade with” and so on. And then I started buying things, and playing gachas, and buying more things, and playing more gachas that now my ‘Inventory Platform’ is somewhere I never venture unto.
I have a feeling I’m doing this so wrong and that Nath will disapprove highly of me…LOL.
Anyway, I’m off to…er…attempt to clean up my Inventory Platform so I shall leave you to your happy shopping!
(P.S: If you don’t hear from me for a few days, send help and make sure you bring hunky men able to do heavy box lifting. Preferably only in their undies. Deal?)
