Community Spirit Blogger Challenge: Zai Lynch

Cajsa IM'd me the other night and asked me if I was interested in doing this blogger challenge...YUP! I love any opportunity to celebrate our unsung heroes!

Zai Lynch is a mate of mine from quite a ways back, she immediately sprung to mind for this. You see Zai is not one of the drama set, she's not in a fashion clique and you may never have heard of her... but Zai is amazing. When I first met her she was heavily involved in all sorts of volunteer services to help other residents, one of these was the Mentoring program.

Zai later became active as a German speaking Linguist and has done a lot to break down the language barriers in SL.

You're probably reading this and thinking that she must be someone that doesn't have a lot going on in RL, and you'd be wrong, she has a very full RL... but the truly amazing thing about Zai is that she *makes* time to help others. For as long as I have known Zai this has been true.

I don't catch up with Zai anywhere near as often as I should, I really have no excuse, I just suck basically. But she is often in my thoughts, and I check her wiki from time to time to see what latest craziness she's been up to... oh! that's the other thing about Zai, besides being a true altruist, she also is hilarious, she has a gadget for every occasion and it's ALWAYS fun, and she just has a wacky kind spirit that makes me smile.

I raise my glass to the Zai's of SL, because without people like her, SL would not be a place that I would want to stay or spend time in.

Love ya Zai,



PS I blatantly flogged the image from Zai's Flickr stream *shh* I didn't know if I should upload one of my pics of Zai with her funky dreads as she seems to be all chic nowadays! LOL

Wow, I... dunno what to say (o.O)
Sittin' in front of this comment thingy for 10 mins now and am speechless. That's not happening very often!!! ^^

You know from own experience that I'm guilty as charged when it comes to writing way too infrequently. I'm blessed with friends like you who know that it's nothing personal and I hope that it will become better when all this RL stuff is sorted mid April.

Seriously Fizz, you've been a friend since my very early days in SL and I'm grateful that you welcomed me. I guess we all started SL out of curiosity, but eventually stayed because we had the chance to connect to inspiring, funny and friendly people. No doubt that every of these adjectives, multiplied by 10, still suits you well!

When I feel all wrong and bleh and head@desk-esque, I still take out your koala and cuddle it. It makes me smile. *g*

Thank you so much. Saying that I'm flattered is understatement.

Luv ya,

Studio Sidhe
