Scopers


Where to Next?



I've been on the internet for about 7yrs strong. Before that, I knew nothing about chat rooms, blogs, etc. I was on the net (via AOL) just existing in IM's with loved ones and distant friends and the occasional game.

By 2006, I was on Myspace and then a Yahoo site called 360. Soon after, I'd get pages on Multiply, Facebook, Twitter, tumblr and a few others that are now either defunct or have been overshadowed by the internet titans. lol

Yahoo 360 brought me a LOT of cool people. From there, I learned about online talk shows, blogging, picture sharing, and learned to share my writing and poetry. Due to Yahoo 360, I've been a talk show co-host, a blogger with my own little following, fallen in love and tripped out of it...and found SO many beautiful women that I call sister. In 2008 I visited Alabama and Philadelphia. I didn't have to go far to meet a few of my girls, because they're from NY and NJ. By 2009, I'd graced DC with my presence (meeting a couple of people but not HALF of whom I wanted to), because I was helping with my godson. Just last year in 2011, I met another sistar when she came to NJ/NY from NC. How we met is nothing short of awkward (for the average), but we made the best out of a painful situation. I've had some really cool experiences.  A couple of those friendships are no longer. In one instance it was hard...the other not so much. Either way, I've had a good time meeting people who I've met online and spent time talking to on the phone, IM's, statuses and blogs.

Just last week, I met my sistar Dee from Illinois. I met her on Multiply when she was dating a friend on my list. He introduced us all to her and eventually, we became sistars. We'd been talking for the longest while she dated him...but, the true closeness came about after they'd broken up. After that it was a done deal and we officially became confidantes.

The view from our room...1414


When she said she wanted to go to Boston to see Phil Perry in concert, I was like, "Okay...that sounds nice..." and then she said, "I want you to come, too!" I was stoked and said yes immediately. I had my issues with the traveling, due to the Narcolepsy...but, I knew I could do it. I have family in Boston and was pleased to see a couple of my cousins while there. They were so sweet and made sure that I got to the hotel safely. That was a blessing all in itself to know that I wasn't "flying blind".

We had a so much fun together. Friday night in Boston kicked off with Phil Perry's stellar performance. After that, we retired to the room we were staying in at the Doubletree and used the rest of the evening to talk, laugh and solidify our sisterly bond. The next day, we hopped a shuttle bus and ended up on a boat ride across the river. It was such a beautiful day. The breeze was gorgeous and I conquered a fear of boats. We had to leave the next day so besides the boat ride, the picture-taking and dinner...we had to prepare.

Coming back across the river


The weekend, however short...was well worth any travel snafus either of us encountered coming and going. I had so much fun and was very happy to have been able to say I've met yet ANOTHER sweet and generous soul that I call friend. I pray that I get to meet all of those who have been and are a significant part of my everyday online existence. God willing, I'll meet everyone and put to bed the assumption that you can't find true friends or trust people over the Internet. My best friends are from this thing...and I wouldn't have it any other way!

So, Whose got next?

What a great example of how only we determine the limits of our friendships and social circles. I'll keep an eye out for events that may be interest and are in locations that are easy to get to. You know you're on my to meet list :-)
