Wednesday, January 4, 2023



With the holidays winding down and coming to an end, aside from the final wrap-up of the 12 days of Christmas ending on Jan 6th. Also known as 3 Kings Day AKA The Epiphany.   Oddly enough it parallels the intuitive grasp of virtual reality across the grid. Many SL residents are getting back into their routines of creating, concert hopping, shopping, dating, hooking up, and slaying Karens amongst the rest of the beautiful chaos only Second Life can cultivate. I set out to find some new years resolutions ideas from my friend list. I just have to say I am grateful for each and everyone that offered their friendship or accepted mine. They are my Tribe in SL and always respond. Including the Karen or two that wigged out and asked to be removed from my friend list. I got love for you too but I can't speak for others. 

The biggest message I took away from everyone’s responses is motivation, positivity, renewal, strength, courage, and self-care. Be kind to yourself and to others and let 2023 be a better year than the last.

“Just to be able to lay my head down at night knowing I was true to me in both worlds, and not to beat me up about resolutions/goals/priorities. - Lady J

“Lanai I had the thought to lose 20 kg...but I know wouldn't happen anyway”- Nita

“I lose that just by logging into SL” -Lanai

Farewell to 2014- SLE Highlights of the year- Lanai Jarrico Reporting…

With every passing year Second Life news grows and our readers learn about new venues, products, residents, anniversaries, events and sometimes even dramatic situations that shape the virtual community. News is something that creates a bridge of information to the masses and provides entertainment for many as well as gives people a voice. It has been one of my greatest virtual journeys as the creator of SLE. I’ve grown as a person and made many friends through the years who have added so much to my experience. With great pleasure it is my honor to continue serving the Second Life community with Team SLE.

With that said, many things have happened in 2014. Things that made us laugh, shake our heads in disbelief as well as inform the public of the wonderful things that residents share with each other in Second Life.

Note from Lanai Jarrico

As we begin a new year and look back at the past, we should remember that each and every experience we have had, shapes who we are and what we will become in the future. People enter our lives at different times in our journey with a purpose to remind us that our differences teach us and helps  make us all unique. We should take the good with the bad and learn from it. Forgive the negatives, it helps us move forward while the positives add substance to our lives. Take a moment to reflect on the past year and then store it in your box of memories, file it away to make room for new memories. Together we all move forward as time waits for no one. Remember this and step forward into 2015. I look forward to what news it will bring. 

May you all have a safe and happy new year.

New Year Resolutions: Happy 2014 – Glossom Resident Reporting…

"Here's to the bright New Year, and a fond farewell to the old; here's to the things that are yet to come, and to the memories that we hold." -- Anonymous

New Year, New Life! To not jinx the new year and being true to tradition, every end of the year we strictly follow a ritual at the stroke of midnight to enter the New Year on the right foot: wearing something white or blue or wearing something new, jumping on the chair, eating raisins or lentils, jumping from a bridge or swimming on cold waters to wash away the evil, just to name a few. These rituals are part of cultural and religious beliefs, to each country their own.

What would you like 2014 to bring you? The arrival of a new year brings high hopes and prospects of a better life and of new opportunities. It is time to reflect on ones actions and behaviors in the past year and to make promises of positive changes in one’s life.  Without further ado, let’s get a sheet of paper and pen and wisely note down this year’s resolutions, hopefully achievable ones. With a little luck we will not fall into old habits.

SLE went around Second Life asking residents what are their New Year resolutions? 

Thank you all for participating.

Celebrating 2014 in Second Life- Lanai Jarrico Reporting…

On December 31st, 60 seconds before midnight EST the famous Time Square  ball will begin making it’s 141 foot descent  on New York City’s Time square.  This tradition was first organized by Adolph Ochs; owner of The New York Times Newspaper on December 31, 1907. 

 Every year besides the wartime blackouts in 1942-43, the streets of  Manhattan, New York are filled in every direction with onlookers waiting to ring in the New Year with confetti, cheers, kisses, proposals and resolutions. For many it is a reflection of 2013 and what they can do to make 2014 better. Hopeful eyes fill with tears as they spread the emotions of change and celebrate with the world.

In Second Life, residents have the opportunity to stand side by side with friends from around the world as the ball drops upon the hour like a domino effect in the different time zones.  Sims across the grid are prepared to ring in the new year with glitzy parties, live music and events that will attract thousands. Whether you have plans in real life or unsure what to do, the parties will ripple across Second Life!

Here are some places around the grid that are celebrating the New Year in Second Life style.

From the Desk of Lanai Jarrico: A Glance Back at 2012: I’m so ready for 2013.


       Now that the hustle and bustle of the Christmas Holiday is winding down and the year is wrapping up, many are preparing for 2013 all around the world.  I'm glad that this year is coming to an end, it was a rough one. I find myself looking back at 2012 with mixed emotions; cautiously looking ahead. Since Doomsday didn’t snuff us out and with the Fiscal Cliff issue  looming in front of us. I’m kind of on the fence about the real world and unsure what to expect.

In the real world, between the increasingly out of place weather patterns, and tragic headlines to the whole 2nd Amendment Right to bear arms debate.  I’m not sure I want help for my shameless Second Life© addiction. I believe it is safer than any synthetic marijuana high or bath salt binge I could go on and I certainly don’t want to deal with getting mugged, carjacked or shot at.   OK, Maybe.  I’m getting a little bit too paranoid here.  I’m just saying…It is a crazy world we are living in and I think some things need to change for the better so we can all feel safer in our own cities, towns and neighborhoods.

In Second Life, we don’t have to worry about bodily harm unless we face plant our keyboards due to lack of sleep, but we do need to protect ourselves from ignorant people that are negative and have absolutely no clue what business or even personal ethics consist of.  I think reputations and integrity need to be valued more.  Those with bad intensions need to find a new hobby to make room for those that can bring back the excitement of Second Life’s innovative digital culture.

 My hope for 2013 is that this year is better than last and the issues that are most important to us are addressed and resolved. This will help us move forward in both worlds.  

Have a Safe and Happy New Year wherever you are in the world. I look forward to a new year of experiences, news, event and ideas.



What's Your New Year Resolution? -Coco Lierfatte Reporting...

At the start of every year people set a specific goal, one that they find obtainable within a year. Some of us succeed at obtaining our goals, and some do not. I got to talk to several people about what their goals are for last year and this coming year. There are a lot of great resolutions for the new year, but I only could choose ten.
