Wrangling Butterflies

1 DJd_007

I didn’t blog yesterday because I was getting ready for a big night – I was prepping to complete one of the items on my Bucket List: I DJ’d in Second Life. I did my audition at Breaking The Rules, the club where I have hosted since it opened. My set ran from 2am – 4am SLT, so I was thrilled to have around 20 people stay awake for my set! I still don’t know if my audition was successful and I’ll earn my DJ tags, but I had a blast, once I managed to wrangle the butterflies and figure out how not to trip over my tongue 😉

I have to say that this photo shows exactly how I felt today – exhausted! I was so pumped after my set finished that I had a hard time sleeping. But I feel very proud that I overcame my fear and actually did it. I also want to thank all of my friends who came out to see me – for most of them it was very, very late, and they stayed awake to support me 🙂 I also want to give special thanks to Kaos, who wouldn’t let me “think about it” and gently pushed me into actually doing it. Hugs and ty, Bubby!

Update: I was working on this post as I was heading into the club to host my normal midnight set. The DJ overslept, so I got to take off my training wheels…I’m officially a DJ! Woot!

      Thank you! The timing couldn’t have been better for that meme and the “try to mark at least one item off your list” instruction 😀 And it was lots of fun!

    Sweet you’re DJing! okay I definitely have to come hear you one of these nights how exciting!

      Oh! That would be so fun! I’m not sure when I’ll have a regular time slot (although it’s looking like Friday from 2-4am SLT might be a possibility). If you’re a night owl, come see me – I would love it 🙂

    I’d love to come out too.. though 2 am SLT is 5 am for me, and that is so not happening.. laughs. I’m just not a very good morning person. Congrats on making one of your bucket list items.
