Meme instructions: Share things that you have learned because of your involvement in Second Life, either personally or professionally. 

I have learned so much in Second Life and it continues each and every day.... Here are some of the things I have learned so far in my journey.

Don't believe everything that you hear or read-  Only take people at face value because sometimes people are not really who they "say" they are.  I don't mind if you do not want to share every aspect of your RL but why lie about things?  It always comes out in the end and it shows what kind of a person you are.  If you do not want to share something simply say so. With this being said I have met some amazing people in SL and I have even met some in RL so take the good with the ugly.

Photo Taking Skills- I have brushed up on my photography skills with the help of SL.  Angles, lighting and techniques as well as photoshop as an editor.  I love snapping photos and I love seeing the outcome of the before and after.  I am still new to photoshop as I used gimp for a long time but I love learning so this is really good for me. I have now used these techniques in my RL photography and after all the practice decided to dabble in RL wedding photography.  5 weddings down so far!

Patience- I mean I have always had patience but in SL you need a different kind of patience.  Dealing with people that might not be so nice to not having people log on for a week when you really need to get in touch with them.  You have to make due with what you have and wait it out.

Loss- People come and go in SL... some for positive reasons and other reasons.  I hate losing people but often enough if you are good enough friends with them you have other means of keeping in touch.  I also lost a really close "sister" in Sl when she passed away this past year.  When people poof I hate thinking the worst but what else can you think when you don't really know what happened to them.  I do care about my friends SL and RL.

I challenge you to complete this as well, I am curious as to what you have learned along the way ♥
