This, plus other behaviors, made all of us pretty sure she was quite young. Possibly even too young to be using Second Life legally. "I'm booooored" is a little kid's whine.
There are so many things to see and do in Second Life that it takes real effort to be bored. Or a total lack of imagination, or perhaps a lack of initiative.
"I'm bored" is a demand for attention. "Pay attention to ME! Entertain me. I'm supposed to be having fun and you're supposed to be providing it."
I refuse to be used in this fashion, or rise to the bait. But Susie....and anyone else who's bored out there...here are some things you might look into to change that.
- Explore. You can use Search to find places that intrigue you or that match your interests, or you can visit blogs like Inara Pey's that showcase many beautiful places. Or you can just open the map, find a cluster of green dots, and teleport at random. You never know what you might find with this method.
- Build, or learn to build. I can while away a lot of hours tossing prims around and coming up with a new design for a house, or furniture. Find some tutorials, learn some new skills. You can venture out of Second Life and learn your way around GIMP or Blender or Photoshop. Figure out how to paint a skin, or design a dress. Learn LSL and create a script to do something. The possibilities are endless.
- Travel by vehicle. Get an airplane, or a helicopter or balloon. Get a sailboat. See how far you can travel, and what you can find along the way.
- Take pictures. When you find a pretty place, take a picture of it! Then learn how to take better pictures, using both the in world tools and post-processing in GIMP or Photoshop.
- Take a class. Many places offer classes in both Real Life and Second Life topics. Try NCI for starters. Search will turn up many others.
- Go shopping. You can do this even if you have no money. Visit some of the many freebie stores. Join a Midnight Mania or Lucky Chairs group.
- Hunt. This combines both shopping and exploring. A Google search will give you information about many hunts in Second Life.
- Roleplay. Find a roleplay region, create a character, join the group, and have fun with the collaborative storytelling that is roleplay.
- Play a Game. There are all sorts of games in SL. Board games like "Greedy Greedy". Sports like the "En Garde" fencing game. Golf. Tennis. Fishing. Games of
chanceskill like Zyngo.
- Visit an Amusement Park. There are quite a few, from the venerable Prim Hearts to some frighteningly exact copies of Disney theme parks.
- Meet people. This is easy to do, just go to crowded places and talk to people. Just don't say, "I'm bored", OK?
