Hey frans! I decided to try something different today and participate in one of those blogger meme challenge things (I’m not sure exactly what they’re called). I won’t make a habit of doing it all the time, but this one really caught my attention and I knew I wanted to do it right away since it’s about family. Oh, and I got it from the Okkbye blog. Okay, so lets begin:
1. What is your SL family surname?
My moms maiden name is Rockwell but.. I go by..my dads name, which is Sharpe… -shifty eyes-
2. What is the make-up of your family? (Parents, kids, siblings etc)
I have a mother, an older brother, an older sister..a younger brother (who has been missing for like.. a month now), several aunts and a couple uncles, a couple cousins.. oh, somehow I have 4 grandmothers (I think two are great grandmothers, but it gets confusing sometimes.) and a grandfather and I had a great grandfather, but I think they sent him away..somewhere. Oh, and I have a puppy.. and my sister has a cat…and other random pets she brings home sometimes.
3. How long have you been in the SL family community?
4. When did you first hear about the SL family community and what was your view on it before you were in it?
I’ve been on SL for about 6 years now, off and on, and I only found out about the family community maybe..2 years ago? I saw a younger avi and was like “wat. y u so little for”. I had no interest in being part of it at the time, though. I actually became really bored with SL near the end of 2008 and stopped logging on. From that point on, I would randomly log in and be active for a week or two and then leave again for months at a time. One day, during a return from one of my random hiatuses, I was like “Being an adult is lame, lemme try being a kid” So..I made myself little and now here I am. 😀 Best decision evar.
5. How did you join your (first) SL family?
I signed up for foster care and my mother happened to be the director of foster care at the time, and she asked me if I wanted to stay with her temporarily and I was like “duh”. So I stayed with her and her family and I refused to leave so they kept me.
6. Do you have a kid avatar?
7. Do you have an adult avatar?
Not anymore, now that I’ve transformed~
8. When did you first decide to make a child avatar?
When I returned in November. I literally logged in and was like “..I wanna be little.” And then I went shopping and spent hours adjusting my shape and buying clothing and hair and stuff. :3
9. Why do you play a child avatar?
I like being able to act innocent and playful and being able to run around and act a fool without getting in trouble for it (or letting my siblings take the blame :D) I like being the youngest and having older siblings to idolize and follow around. I like being carried and given food and snacks to eat. I like..I like everything haha.
10. What do you like about being a parent in SL?
I’m not a parent.
11. Do you do family roleplay? If so, what kind of roleplay? Paragraphs, emoting – or just “acting like”?
My family just acts like family. We do a little emoting here and there, but we act like family by default.
12. Do you have any special family-related activities? (Dinners, camp etc.)
I live on a family sim so we do whatever is happening on the sim at the time, sometimes we do dinner/lunch too.
13. What is the thing you love most about your SL family?
I love how easy it is for all of us to be together and how everyone gets together on skype for hours, chatting and laughing at each other. I love the random moments ( when the grandparents show up to wreck havoc, the alien pregnancy[don’t ask], hiding from the mafia) and wouldn’t change any of it for the world.
Thanks for reading! 🙂
