Who is Rhonda?

I am following Elena’s example and would like to give a short introduction of myself.

My name is Rhonda Pinion-Streeter. I have been in SL for about *mumble* six years.

Some background: I met an awesome guy at a club one day. He worked there. I ended up working there as well. Time passed and I ended up working as an asst. manager for a different club. *can just hear the “What does that have anything to do with anything?” LOL* He enjoyed spending time at the club where I worked, but…

… one day he brought up the idea of RPing and had seen a poster about a BSG RPing sim (believe it or not, this is the circle in the story back to the club I met him at… LOL) We decided to try it out. He is an avid flyer and enjoys RPing. I had never RPed before (and I still can’t fly worth a darn).

I had not watched the reimagined series (and still haven’t seen all of it). I vaguely remember some of TOS from my *mumbles some more* youth. After several very nervous weeks of RPing I finally got the hang of it. Well, mostly anyway.

And I was hooked. I have been with BSG21 for the last 5 versions now. Some versions more active than others. I ended up blundering in to the Leadership Team starting in V2. And even more “blundersome”, becoming one of the builders. I have also been very active in the PR and graphics side of things as well. Oh – and I do RP, too.

I am looking forward to the challenge of the new direction of the storyline.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask me. I can’t guarantee any answers, but am more than happy to help find them.

Sincerely,

Rhonda Pinion-Streeter

One day we were standing on sim and half of the prims just poofed…

Sim still supported. Future after Lindsey. After Shmuel

Lindsey also known as Muffy was our creative storytelling inspiration. She sparked the rebirth of the sim and sadly she has left us, hopefully temporarily due to heavy real life responsibilities.

I can understand. 5 weeks ago I got the flu on the way to Israel and it took 4 weeks to kick it. I literally found it hard to get out of bed, let alone work or log into SL. In two weeks I must go back to Israel for Passover and to assist in the care of my father in law who though he has survived cancer, has been thrown out by his wife of 19 years.

My own mother has recently went through surgery and in need of care as well.

I want to let the community know, I support it. As long as I am working the sim will be funded. We must face facts. If we are to have a sim, we need a driving force. We need someone to be the heart and soul of the place as Lindsey was and as yevka was before that.

I will try to make myself available and I encourage everyone to reach out in any way they can, talk, gmail, this forum. We have a story to tell, a dream to lay out. We shall not let it perish from the realty we know as virtual.

It is my wish to build the sim up to a point where it is self sustaining and I  have no role at all other than silent partner. Though I would not mind a cameo playing a Cain like character.

Stay strong.

Step up.
