I just unchecked the "send IMs to my email" in my user preferences of my SL account...
I find myself spending less and less time there, as I find little to do now, or little that interests me.
I'm not quitting, but probably taking a break, with the occasional log ins once in a while. RL has me stacked with a huge amount of studying for certification exams...this will continue until mid-summer.
SL was to me the 60s I've never had. I could be dancing at a party and step on the toes of the person who captured the animation we were all using. Total population was under 90K. New creations were amazing, new features were just being added. It's still like this, but with so many people it becomes hard to stand out.
My last rez day passed unmarked. 3 years. So much has happened since I stepped on there back in Jan 06.
The Shelter is no longer what it used to be, but my Shelter friends will always remain in my heart.
Thank you Shelter. Thank you SL. You have changed my RL for the better, and made me look inside myself.
I'll keep in touch.
