About Bine

The a few snapshots of Bine from Flickr

I logged into SecondLife 3/3/2007 for the first time. It was a bit confusing to begin with, knowing what to do and what the point of it all was. At the time I listened to a lot of podcasts and there was a SIM called  PodcastLand (or something like that). I spend a lot of time there. Here is Bine on that SIM:

Just hanging out

But mostly hanging out there was a lonely affair. I am on CET, and all the podcasters were on SLT, so if I wanted to meet any of them, I had to stay up late or get up early. Once I went to a CD Launch Party and later to my first ever concert in Secondlife on that island.

7PM is like 4am my time

My first experience  with a group of people when I got fed up with being on my own all my online time was on a Magic SIM. I went to classes on witchery and magic and it was fun. There was also a tavern on their SIM, so I also learned to party virtually. One night I met a girl there who gave me a landmark to a club she went to called the Wandering Star. I went and had a great time. The Magic SIM closed and I never found out where they went or what happened to them, but it was okay because I had found my new home and family at the Wandering Star.

A lot of stuff happened at the Wandering Star. It was happy times and drama and also where I started out DJing. The Wandering Star was also my first experience with meeting SL friends in real life. I went to Hamburg and met up with three people from the club, and we had a great week.

But things change and people change and some people just stay the same. I moved on when the dramas became too much, and my SL has been more or less drama-free since then. But the Wandering Star formed my SecondLife in so many ways, and I am really happy I got to have that experience.

Since then I have spend my virtual time travelling, loving, exploring and decorating. I go to concerts, and I shop. I find new SIMs to explore and old SIMs to revisit.

In 2013 I got my first homestead SIM – Binemist – and that takes a lot of my time in SL now. I find it a great outlet for my creativity, and I love that others also like my SIM. Read and see more here.

In the spring of 2016 I closed Binemist and gave the SIM back to the estate owner. Instead I bought my own SIM – yes Bine is now an estate owner i SL. I wanted more prims to play with, and I wanted to be able to play LindenLab directly in real dollars without having to exchange to Linden dollars every time it was time to pay the tier.
