I’ve met a lot of people over the five years I have been a part of this world. Probably one of the people who had the biggest impact on my Second Life was Bart Chabrow. We were talking one day and he mentioned New Oa, which was called Beta Quadrant back then. I decided to give it a look and was blown away.
I was excited about meeting all of the people who enjoyed Green Lantern as much as me. But it wasn’t a cake walk getting into the Green Lantern Core. I submitted an application and didn’t make it through the first round. Then I applied and made it as an applicant a few months later. But I didn’t make it through to Rookies. I reapplied again, and didn’t make it. And with all the perseverance I could muster, I applied again, and made it through.
