Happy Rez Day to Me!

I was new, lost, and awkward. I was surprised when a woman, now a dear friend, IM'ed me and started helping me out. I had walked by her at least twice. Her IM's stopped me in my tracks and then others around her started to IM me also. While I haven't heard from them since my first week, I still talk with her regularly. I don't know if I'd be in SL if it weren't for her.
Days later, she showed me her sim. I was so amazed and awestruck. And I still am. Her sim is my home in SL and I am always struck by its beauty and the tranquility I feel there.
I've met so many more helpful people since that night. Not all have been nice, but I have certainly learned a lot. I have learned building basics, how to get along with others in the virtual world like the code of conduct in SL (no pushing, no griefing, how to AR people etc), how to create my own stuff, and how to enjoy myself.
It hasn't been all fun for me, but I have had fun.
I am thankful to all those who have helped me along until now!
