A Christmas Letter

This is a long post, and I am sorry for that, but I don't know how to do cuts, and unfortunatly I don't have much time to go searching now! Don't get upset, and if you don't feel like reading, just skip it! Sorry :(




I am feeling a bit sentimental today... so today I want to say something special for all of you... I am totally aware that I should say this every day of the year, but then maybe it's the christmas spirit and the fast approach of the end of the year that makes me think....


I want to say I am truly blessed for having a great real life, awesome parents, coolest brother, protective grandparents, unbelieveble amazing boyfriend and best friends I could ever wish! I thank all of them for making my real life better each day!

But now I have also a second life! A great one! And I am also blessed for all the people I've met during this 18 months! Some of you have become important part of not only my second life, but also my real life, and there's not a day that I don't think of you, as I do for real friends! I care for you and I do my best to be a good friend, and I am sorry if I have ever disappointed (and I know I did, for some).

I do not want to forget anyone, but I am sure you all know who you are! I just want to mention some of you, 'cuz I think I may have failed with you!

... Since my first day on SL that I have this big best super protective but very fun friend called Azazello Zeluco! I luv ya and I am sorry I am not the best friend/company for parties 'cuz I am too busy working...

... And then I also met Milu Laval in my store and after that day we have been confidents from each other, co-workers, best friends... You're a very sweet person, and probably you don't know but you are way too strong than I am! I am sorry for not being the best support you can have!

... Before my first show ever, I've met Gillian Waldman! She was my beta tester and the most honest person! So cute and sweet, she fast become a good friend! I have so much respect for her, that I used to be shy when I wanted to approach her just to say hi! I am sorry you'r not around SL anymore (or I can't seem to see you).I hope you're ok!

... In the show, I've met Myllie Writer! My best friend! We were also co-workers, and we used to have same ideas and think the same things! Those were very good times! I know you're feeling kinda "weird" in SL now, but I truly hope you can find your way again, 'cuz I miss you!

... Through Myllie, I've met Kamian Trescothick, and he build me one of my stores, but much more than that, we have become good friends and he is the most amazing guy I've met in SL. It's a pitty he doesn't like extrovert girls like me LOL I luv ya, and thought the time we spend now it's not the same we used to, you'll always be in heart, my friend!

... Because of plurk, I've met one of the best persons in all SL, no matter what anyone says about her, I will always be grateful to her! She is an amazing listener and an awesome friend! I like to say I need to listen more to her wise words! Luth Brodie is THE most amazing person and I love her :)

... During my life of designer, I've had the chance to met some bloggers and other designers! You are too many, and I truly respect each one of us! But I've to talk about three girls I've met, in different times in my life, but they are very good friends, each one of them in her own way! Ana Lutetia, thank you for supporting me since my first design, for the times you offered your sholder and for dragging me to places like plurk :) Shir Dryke, thanks for trusting me, 'cuz that shows a lot of you, and also thank you for letting me be a part of your life! We both know how much I like you :) and last but not least Efemera Bisiani, a true friend that I know I can trust and most important I know she is totally honest, and even if she will find it hard, she will always find a way of being honest and true with me, and for that I respect her and love her :)

... There's another person I want to thank! He was an important part of my life, and though he is not anymore, there were (few) good moments we shared! Maybe I wouldn't do it the same way today (oh god, who am I fooling?? I wouldn't for sure), but it showed me a lot about me and about Second Life relationships! He showed me things I though that only fools would do or think! So, Romeu, thank you for all the good moments, the laugh, the dances, the kisses, the messages, the conversations... and I am sorry! I know and I admit that I have some guilt in what happened! I hope we can be friends again, some day!


There's many more people I would like to say something, but this post is already too long! If you have not read your name on this list, I hope you know who you are! I'll try to thank you each one of you, who have made my SLife better and happier! Thank you all! Maybe in New Year's Eve I'll write more...

(sorry for anyone who's reading, but I'll have to write this one in Portuguese for my friend here)

Annah querida,
Só agora fui ver esse post seu, tão fofo, agradecendo a todos e quero, antes de tudo, te agradecer de volta :)
É verdade que eu ando meio sumida ( e vou continuar por mais umas duas semanas no mínimo), mas quero que saiba que, não importa o que aconteça comigo no SL, você está e continuará no meu coraçãozinho, viu? Tem sido um prazer te acompanhar até aqui, te desejo o mundo e muito mais!
Beijo no coração!
Myllie
