GOOD LIFE CREATIONS SANDBOX, Varney (152, 151, 24) — Veyot came to build something. 12:04 pm SLT, Saturday, 6 June 2020. (Vanessa Blaylock/Medici University)
GOOD LIFE CREATIONS SANDBOX, Varney (152, 151, 24) — Veyot reading the poems. Haiku Speedbuild normally uses haiku, but today we used romantic pop song lyrics (“romantic” as in “romanticism,” not as in “love song”). Participants pick 1 of 4 poems which they can buy for L$0 and then set it on their building pad. Then they create some sculpture or architecture inspired by the poem. 12:14 pm SLT, Saturday, 6 June 2020. (Vanessa Blaylock/Medici University)
GOOD LIFE CREATIONS SANDBOX, Varney (152, 151, 24) — Dragnut, Veyot, and I working on our projects when a 0-day old avatar, Malika Khan from Pakistan dropped by and wanted help finding free clothes and dressing herself. About an hour in to explaining alpha masks, why you need them, what they do, where you find them, and how to take them off or put them on as the case may be, you realize that Second Life has still not entirely mastered the onboarding experience. 12:55 pm SLT, Saturday, 6 June 2020.

GOOD LIFE CREATIONS SANDBOX, Varney (152, 151, 24) — SIM owner Timo Daehlie and Veyot. Timo and I hadn’t met yet. It turns out he’s a friend of Veyot’s. Super-nice guy who’s happy to facilitate and publicize our Junebilation events. 1:08 pm SLT, Saturday, 6 June 2020. (Vanessa Blaylock/Medici University)
GOOD LIFE CREATIONS SANDBOX, Varney (152, 151, 24) — Making stuff! 1:10 pm SLT, Saturday, 6 June 2020. (Vanessa Blaylock/Medici University)
GOOD LIFE CREATIONS SANDBOX, Varney (152, 151, 24) — Veyot bought a puppy purse for Malika. And she found a starter avatar she liked. I put it on too. There are a lot of great SL starter avatars. Eventually you want to look different either to express yourself better, or just to not have a common avatar. You don’t really need to be fussing with clothing stuff on your first day in-world. Although, when I rezzed back in 2009, I think I did the same thing! 1:36 pm SLT, Saturday, 6 June 2020. (Vanessa Blaylock/Medici University)
GOOD LIFE CREATIONS SANDBOX, Varney (152, 151, 24) — Long-time friend Part Shamen, and a landscape architect, Albane Claray, came by. Malika and I got our twin animation game going! 2:00 pm SLT, Saturday, 6 June 2020. (Vanessa Blaylock/Medici University)

GOOD LIFE CREATIONS SANDBOX, Varney (152, 151, 24) — Penny Candy (nee Pennyroyal Calamity) joined us. 3:35 pm SLT, Saturday, 6 June 2020. (Vanessa Blaylock/Medici University)
GOOD LIFE CREATIONS SANDBOX, Varney (152, 151, 24) — Penny taught Malika how to dance. Probably easier and funnerer than trying to figure out alpha masks. Some years ago we did an event where we went to Welcome Areas and tried to be helpful to new avatars. A few hours of trying to explain inventory and wardrobe by typing can be tiring, but it’s nice to actually help someone who’s new and confused find their way in a foreign world. Meanwhile I tried on another starter avatar. Everybody liked it. 3:39 pm SLT, Saturday, 6 June 2020. (Vanessa Blaylock/Medici University)
GOOD LIFE CREATIONS SANDBOX, Varney (152, 151, 24) — Dancing, almost inevitably leads to frog guns. 3:44 pm SLT, Saturday, 6 June 2020. (Vanessa Blaylock/Medici University)
GOOD LIFE CREATIONS SANDBOX, Varney (152, 151, 24) — I only wound up having time to twist 2 prims before Malika showed up needing help. This is me with my 2 prims. It was a start anyway. 4:04 pm SLT, Saturday, 6 June 2020. (Vanessa Blaylock/Medici University)
GOOD LIFE CREATIONS SANDBOX, Varney (152, 151, 24) — With the crowd dissipated I went to make some chai. When I got back I discovered that Ama Ree (cousin of fashion legend Nicky Ree?) had encapsulated me in a wooden sphere. 5:20 pm SLT, Saturday, 6 June 2020. (Vanessa Blaylock/Medici University)

GOOD LIFE CREATIONS SANDBOX, Varney (152, 151, 24) — Yadda, yadda… frog fight. 5:31 pm SLT, Saturday, 6 June 2020. (Vanessa Blaylock/Medici University)

I only got to twist 2 prims today. Although I wasn’t necessarily planning on participating, so it’s 2 prims more than I had planned on. It’s also the first 2 prims I’ve twisted in 3 years. It was a nice feeling to play with prims again. And, of course, frogs. A really nice day visiting with friends old and new, twisting prims, and having the chance to help someone new and confused have a bit better experience in a funny world that means so much to so many of us.

How can MU help you?
