SL vs. RL

I try to keep RL and SL scrupulously separate, but of course they can't help but affect each other in some ways.

I just ran into one of those situations. I've been laid off.

Looking for a job is itself a job, so it shouldn't greatly affect my time in SL unless things don't go well.

Wish me luck, please.
In this proud land we grew up strong,
We were wanted all along;
I was taught to fight, taught to win,
I never thought I could fail.

No fight left, or so it seems,
I am a man whose dreams have all deserted.
I changed my face, I changed my name,
But no one wants you when you lose.

—"Don't Give Up," Peter Gabriel

I'm so sorry to hear this, Melissa. I hope things do go well and that your unemployment is short-lived.

Don't give up! (I love that song)
