I also have fallen down a brand new rabbit hole recently. Or a couple. Not sure if you have heard, but Hivefest this year will take place at AltspaceVR! So I got my VR goggles already, and holy moly! I can’t even complain about being extra. Everyone needs this shit! That was my thought when taking them off after the first day of trying them out. Seriously. Everyone needs them! The possibilities here are endless. And after nearly a year of confinement within the borders of my country and with all the virus shenanigans, virtual reality feels like newfound freedom to wander and explore. I am not saying that I would want that to be the future of humanity, as our bodies are still tethered to the physical world, not at all. It will never replace the real world for me. What I am saying, it will be the place to make impossible things possible. It is also not limited to gaming, digital meeting places, and events, experiences, or even exploration of entire worlds. There’s creating in 3d too! Modelling, painting, sculpting! Aaa! ^^ Needless to say, it also keeps you active while doing all those things instead of being a complete potato. You shouldn’t even think twice about it. Or go back and forth. There are almost no downsides to the damn thing! I certainly don’t regret it, even though I had to pay at least double the price for it, as my potato country people love to fuck with their people and fill their own pockets the double or triple amount of money for the electronic goods. Oh, let’s be real. It is not just the electronic goods. There is a reason why traveling to other countries for shopping is a thing here. It is cheaper to hop on a plane and go to, for example, Germany or the UK, to shop for clothes and other things as they sell old stuff as brand new here while the rest of the world has already moved on to the newest stuff for less. I am not saying everything here is garbage. That is not true. But the imported things are a struggle here. I don’t get why other than greed.
Oh, and there is a pre-Hivefest event tomorrow (December 6th) happening in AltspaceVR! I am attending, and so are many other wonderful Hive people. Hivefest isn’t limited to those who have VR headsets. You can join on the 2d app too. It is just like playing a game on your machine, but this time characters are real existing Hive people stranded at their homes, desperate to connect and meet again! Free registration for the event is available until December 7, so hurry up if you haven’t registered yet! Hope to see you tomorrow and also at Hivefest on December 18-19! ^^
Anyway, here is a treat from the real world! The first snow in Latvia!
