I remember when

The older I get the more I understand that whole “set in her ways” thing. It’s not something I ever wanted to be, but I will admit that I’m to the point where I really don’t like big changes. Once upon a time, I rearranged my furniture monthly, but now? Nah, I haven’t moved my bed in months, except to clean under it…that one time. *laughs* I have slowly become the person that says stuff like, “I remember when….” and I’m usually using some pretty landmarked events to complete that sentence. *sighs*

I’m a haters dream

Baby go ahead
I’ll be your hatred and your pain
This is killing us all
I don’t care if I fall
We’re the dying, we are the damned
Baby go ahead
I’ll be the villain you can blame
I’ll be the belle of the brawl
Be the lust in us all
I’m the diva of the damned
I know I don’t belong in this scene
Sex metal barbie, homicidal queen
Excuse me can you tell me the worst thing you’ve heard about me
Maybe that I’m a little harlot homicidal queen
You know I heard that I don’t belong in this scene
Sex, metal, barbie, whore, attention fiend
You know I heard that I’m a haters dream
Low class, white trash, I’m so obscene
You know I heard that I should be ashamed
Still they hold their fists in the air screaming my name

Literally triggered

Let’s talk about triggers! This seems to be the word of the year. It seems to be as overused as literally. Its overuse has caused it to be the very thing it describes. A few years back everyone was slinging the word narcissistic around and literally has been overused for the last five or six years, at least. I just wonder what creates these word trends. More often than actual words, slang terms gain this power with particular generations and eventually burn out. I understand those a bit more, but these words that literally trigger a cringed response? (You see what I did there?) I’m just not so sure, but to make sure I offer up at least one more cringe worthy word…when did moist become so taboo? When I hear that word, all I think of is cake.

Don’t be that guy

The other day, a friend of mine said hello via IMs. No big deal, right? Okay, I should also probably add that he’s not a friend friend, he’s more like a friend of a friend. Seemingly nice guy that I don’t really have an issue with. However, something strange happened after he said hello that day. He offered me a hug which was nice…I accepted, but afterwards, he patted my ass. *sighs*

me: I’m not one of those girls.
him: I know 😉
me: Then why did you do it?
him: I thought I was being cute. I’m sorry.

I forgave him and moved on about my day. Unfortunately, I can’t stop thinking about it. I had a guy hit on me via Facebook recently who had a rather unusual approach. I assumed he was being creepy and asked him to not be that guy. He responded quite defensively and suggested that I was asking for creeps to approach me, because of the sexy photos I post. Now, I know that’s bullshit. I don’t care what kind of pictures I post. No one deserves to be spoken with anything less than respect. Here’s the thing though, people use Second Life as an excuse, but honestly…would these same men approach a Playboy model or porn star by smacking them on the ass or grabbing at them? I’m sure they get an array of bullshit online like we do. However, I need people out there to understand that just because the POTUS grabs women by the pussy and gets away with it, doesn’t mean everyone else will!

DoberMittens

I was so excited when I heard about these dobermans. Many many years ago, I stayed with a family that had several dobermans and upon my first visit, I was absolutely terrified. Mostly, because one of them would jump right over the fence and greet people at their cars. She was simply excited to see visitors. She turned out the be the sweetest dog ever, but man did she put the fear of god into people at the time. My experience with them has been nothing but positive so I named my main doberman, Mittens…short for DoberMittens. *grins*

Chickadee is a brat!

Once upon a time, Sady adopted the most wonderful young woman as her daughter in Second Life. This beautiful young lady was very quick to point out all the adult toy boxes that Sady was putting in her photos. Then one day out of the blue, Sady logged in to receive her very own vending machine full of adult toys. This was an amazing gift from her naughty daughter who said, “Now you have a real toy box!” *laughs* Well, like mother like daughter, my sweet Chickadee is a brat!! I know, shocking! God, I love that girl!

Lounging by the pool

You gotta love summertime in Second Life. All the best swimsuits are released and we can lounge in the virtual sun as much as we want without the risks. Even if you don’t have a pool or a beach of your own, there are tons of places in SL that do. I chose to take this photo at the rooftop pool at the hotel on FMD’s full sim.  They have an entire city now and all are encouraged to take photos. It is a members only sim, but I assure you this place is worth the price. I don’t have a lot to say today…I’ve got a busy day of lounging by the pool planned. *winks*

We had a good run

Life is just going so quickly, I can’t catch it
I don’t think anyone can
I met the devil in the hills last night
I was driving by myself, alone
He said, “Boy, what you running from?”
I said I don’t know
I don’t know if it was a better time
But girl, we were giants then
Endless nights, we were infinite (so, terrified, I guess)
Summer’s end would mean the death of us
But summer passed, and we grew up
And all of our paths, they split up
And I haven’t seen your face or heard your voice in so long
So, so long
We had a good run, it’s over now
No, I’m not sad about it, but, I’m just, it’s weird
Yeah, lying on the grass, talk is so old
Living under Orion, we grew so bold
Lying on our days, we were outlaws
Our loss, but, catch me if you can, never wiped out
Tryin’ to catch a wave, tryin’ to break out
I guess I didn’t know
And now I’m gone, but it don’t hurt me anymore
That’s just the way it goes, yeah, I should’ve known
But, I heard you talking to the walls late last night
“There are no ends, just grays and half-lives”
Half-time (and I heard you), it’s alright (and I heard you)
That summer passed, and we grew up
And all of our plans, they split us up
And I haven’t seen your face or heard your voice in so long
So, so long
We had a good run, it’s over now
So, please, don’t fade me now
So, please, don’t fade me now
So, please, don’t lose me now
I heard the words that you never said
Smokescreen from a cigarette
Exhale, we could never be what’s in our heads (So, please, don’t fade me now)
Elevation doesn’t matter now, it’s straight ahead
Sending shivers down my spine, life pirouettes
It’s cool, we’re used to losing real friends
Only ever feeling it in retrospect (So, please, don’t fade me now)
And we were really breathing, not silhouettes
Maybe in another dream this would never end
‘Cause everything is not alright, and we are falling
But that’s just life, without some lows there is no highs
And everything will be okay, though we are all hurting
‘Cause time flies fast and you know, no pain is forever
Ever, forever
I’m not saying, I’m not saying you should
Be really cautious and shit, I’m quite the opposite
Just like, it’s, I mean, so, exactly
No pain lasts forever is ridiculous, you think?
I think that’s ridiculous
You think that’s ridiculous?
Yeah, of course everything lasts forever

Careful there

As people in a world that seems to revolve a great deal around social media, I think it’s important that we choose our words carefully. I’ve seen it so many good people virtually destroyed because of a rant on social media. We’ve all seen it. Then there are those that go back and forth, arguing with one another on a very public social forum. Even more reckless are those that jump into those arguments not really knowing the entire story. We must be careful jumping on these bandwagons, because we really don’t know who is watching. Nor do we know what their perception of the situation is. I think its important that we take a step back and ask ourselves if its really important. Is the rant worth a public audience? Does this argument really need to take place and if so, is it truly necessary that it occurs in public? Do we know the facts of both sides? Have we asked any questions or are we surfing straight into a tsunami? They lied to us when we were kids…they told us that words can never hurt us. As adults, we all know better. So, please, take care when participating in this social media dramas.

Cutting back

Cutting back on the number of stores that I officially blog for is one of the hardest things for me to do. Choosing which stores to stay with and which to let go of can simply do my head in, but its part of what I have to do if I am to remain a responsible blogger. It’s my duty to do my best for each brand I represent and the minute I know that is no longer possible, I have to face the truth and cut them loose. It’s heartbreaking to say the least. Especially when I have been with a brand from the beginning. However, as I continue along my blogging journey I evolve just like everyone else. My tastes change, my style changes, my feelings change and thus my blog changes, as well as my photos.
The important thing for me to remember is why I blog in the first place. I blog for me, first and foremost. I blog for the therapeutic value and the creative outlet. The past few months, I’ve discovered that’s all I do. I log in to SL simply to blog and I work. I love both, but there has to be more. SL is not a job, nor do I ever want it to feel like one. I love the jobs I have and I love my blog. I love the stores that I represent and those I’ve had to part ways with over time. I have never blogged for a store that I didn’t believe in nor will I.
It’s time for me to find room for more than blogging and work in my Second Life. That’s why I had to resign my position from a total of 9 stores and events this past weekend. *sighs* I only hope the brands know how difficult the decision was and that I will always be grateful for the opportunities afforded me while blogging for them.
