Hi, I’m Sachie Bade. I’ve been wandering around and living in Second Life for over four years now on and off. A lot of the stuff on this blog is really random, but most of it connects in some way (at least in my mind) to my experiences in that virtual world. I am definitely a persona or part of self here that is quite different at times from the eating, brushing teeth self (and its parts) that lives and roams around IRL. For me that is the fun, being slightly someone else.
One of the things I really enjoy about this world is building a home for myself. I love decorating and landscaping in virtuality. I thought, at one time, that I was going to be a builder and make wonderful creations, but I realized that what I really enjoy is finding all of the amazing things that other people have made and placing them in a way that somehow reflects who I am, my tastes, and what makes me happy. So, Second Life, for me, is an open-ended video game focused on mild dramatic performance and domesticity.
I spend a lot of time alone in Second Life. It is kind of where I go to be alone, as my real life puts me into contact with a lot of people every day. This doesn’t mean I don’t want to talk to you, though! So drop me a line here or inworld and let me know what you are doing.
