Another Time Zone

Dating in Second Life can be tricky, especially when there are major time zone differences. Joe and I are making it work, but its not always easy. There’s a 7 hr difference between us and he’s got a pretty busy real life schedule. Fortunately for us, I’m available more often than I’m not. So, I’m able to work around his schedule more. Sometimes though, real life gets in the way and this picture epitomizes how it can feel sometimes when planning a surprise for the one you love in another time zone.

No Hat, Yet, Sis!

Would you look at that? Sady got herself a Valentine! Well, he found me, but the point is we’re together and we’re happy. It’s been a very long time since I seriously dated anyone in Second Life. I tried to date a friend of mine a few months ago, but that just didn’t work out for us and he eventually left Second Life. He even gave me his avatar. That’s two guys that have given me their avatars now…so, if you need a male model, hit me up! LOL Hmm, maybe I should change my name to the Black Widow! RIP Joe, you’re doomed now! Nah, I really like Joe…I might even love him…*blushes*
Alright, so I’ll fill you in…cuz everyone keeps asking the same question. “How did you meet?” Well, we actually met years ago at a club named Exodus that my sister owned. (Technically, she still owns it, but she closed it a few years ago.) Apparently he was a noob then and I was too caught up in some other bullshit to remember him. Though, to be fair, I did remember his name. Turns out he also dated a dear friend of mine. The minute I realized he had dated my friend, Tempy, I had to talk to her. Unlike so many people in the world, I don’t like to date men that my friends have dated. (Another reason I’ve been single so long.) Well, not only did Tempy give her blessing, but she’s become our biggest cheerleader. In fact, I’m not sure that I would even be with him now if not for her encouragement. Ffs, I got off track again! Why didn’t you stop me? I know…I know, you couldn’t if you tried.
Okay, so he hit me up on Facebook with a joke about a meme I had shared. He had my attention straight away with his sense of humor. From there, we met inworld to hang out…and well, we’ve been inseparable ever since. He’s pretty freaking amazing. He’s made me laugh, cry, yawn (time zones suck), and most of all…he’s made me very very happy. He’s even battled my demons (an ongoing job, sadly) and nothing I’ve done has run him off yet. *grins*  Now here’s the part that my sister will latch onto…he’s even mentioned a wedding..*shudders*…I told him he can propose on our one year anniversary. Until then, no more wedding talk…so to Kess, “NO HAT YET, SIS!”

They Add Life

I’ve been looking at this picture for days wondering what I will write about, but every time I look at it, all I can think about is how it reminds me of my childhood. My mother always had plants everywhere. She still does. She plants flowers outside our condo and all the neighbors know our place as the one with all the pretty flowers. When she passes, they will all know it, because all those flowers will dissipate into weeds. I do not have her green thumb, not even close. If anything, I have what’s called a black thumb. I can kill a plant without even trying. No matter what the decor (and it was always changing) there were lots of plants. She says they add life to a room. I suppose that’s why my bedroom looks like the land of the dead. *laughs* That’s MamaSady for you, usually right about the big things, even in Second Life, plants really do add life to a room.

My Therapy

I initially began this blogging journey of mine as a form of therapy. Now I’m in actual therapy. As my therapy progresses, I’m getting to some pretty hardcore subject matter. Poking demons that I’ve struggled to shut down for most of my life. Things I couldn’t begin to get raw about in such a public format. As I work on myself more and more each week in my real life, I find my tolerance for some of the mental games that take place in Second Life getting smaller and smaller. I watch as other people completely melt down over things that seem so ridiculous, but I know that those people are feeling something so real. It absolutely breaks my heart to see people walking around with so much rage, hate, and misery. It’s truly sad to know that there are people out there that genuinely find joy in the faults of other people. I find it completely heart wrenching that some individuals find comfort in pointing out the flaws of other people. I am by no means perfect, but one thing I have never done is tell lies about people to make them look bad. I have never spread vicious rumors hoping to destroy someone else’s happiness. The world is ugly enough and I feel that it is up to us to be as positive as we can, to celebrate the success of others, to embrace the hopes of one another, to remove ourselves from situations that make us unhappy, so that we can truly share and promote that positive energy. I truly hope that anyone out there that is wasting their energy on hatred will find some inner peace so that they can find happiness. Just imagine a world full of happy people…isn’t it beautiful?

Too Numb

Never came around to make this house into a home
Put you on a pedestal and sat you on a throne
I found all your skeletons, your closet full of bones
I see you take pride in bloody eyes, I know you’re stoned

I can hear resentment in your tone
Said I’d never make it on my own
Maybe I’m just better off alone
Too dumb to deal
Too numb to feel the knife in my back

Judas, hey
Oh, oh, Judas, hey
Judas, hey
Oh, oh, Judas, hey

I can see you coming from about a mile away
And all the mystique of your pretentiousness is fading
Reminiscing all the backwards ways you’d make me stay
Begging me for thread, I think you need to change your brain

The Greenhouse

My aunt used to have this old farmhouse. It had been in her family for many many years. It wasn’t the most beautiful to look at from the outside, but once you were inside you knew that you were in a house made of love. There was also an amazing greenhouse attached to a perfect country kitchen. I loved visiting her and having coffee amidst all the greenery. If I was really lucky, it would rain while I was there. THAT was amazing. Of course, it had to be a light rain. Okay, so it only happened once in all the years I visited, but it was the perfect spring rain. The pitter patter of the water falling on the panels of the build that my uncle had so lovingly constructed was absolute heaven.
This is truly one of my favorite memories of my aunt and uncle. I loved visiting them for a weekend here and there.  My uncle passed away about ten years ago. Since then, my aunt sold that house and moved to a suburb, but I will always remember sitting in that greenhouse with coffee as the sun came up.

You Should Be Sad

Let me start this off by saying
I really meant well from the start
Take a broken man right in my hands
And then put back all his parts

But you’re not half the man you think that you are
And you can’t fill the hole inside of you with money, girls and cars
I’m so glad I never ever had a baby with you
‘Cause you can’t love nothing unless there’s something in it for you

Oh, I feel so sorry
I feel so sad
I tried to help you
It just made you mad
And I had no warning
About who you are
Just glad I made it out without breaking down
~ Halsey – You Should Be Sad

I got this need for you

Looking you over and you don’t know my name yet
But by the time you looked away, already knew I couldn’t fake it

I got this need for you, forming in my beating heart
I knew the meaning right away, we only yesterday were worlds apart

I think I may love you
If you give me some time
Maybe you’ll love me too

I got this thing for you
If you come closer I can whisper in your ear
And if you wanna walk away
I’ll tell you all the things I know you wanna hear

Haunting Me

I was as pure as a river
But now I think I’m possessed
You put a fever inside me
And I’ve been cold since you left
I’ve got a boyfriend now and he’s made of gold
And you’ve got your own mistakes in a bed at home
I’m hoping you could save me now but you break and fold
You’ve got a fire inside but your heart’s so cold

‘Cause I’ve done some things that I can’t speak
And I’ve tried to wash you away but you just won’t leave
So won’t you take a breath and dive in deep
‘Cause I came here so you’d come for me

I’m begging you to keep on haunting
I’m begging you to keep on haunting me
I’m begging you to keep on haunting
I know you’re gonna keep on haunting me

We walk as tall as the skyline
And we have roots like the trees
But then your eyes start to wander
‘Cause they weren’t looking at me
You weren’t looking for me
~ Halsey – Haunting

How’s it feel?

Found you when your heart was broke
I filled your cup until it overflowed
Took it so far to keep you close (Keep you close)
I was afraid to leave you on your own (Ooh)

I said I’d catch you if you fall (Fall)
And if they laugh, then fuck ’em all (All)
And then I got you off your knees
Put you right back on your feet
Just so you could take advantage of me

Tell me, how’s it feel sittin’ up there?
Feelin’ so high, but too far away to hold me
You know I’m the one who put you up there
Name in the sky, does it ever get lonely?
Thinkin’ you could live without me
Thinkin’ you could live without me
Baby, I’m the one who put you up there
I don’t know why (Yeah, I don’t know why)
Thinkin’ you could live without me
Live without me
Baby, I’m the one who put you up there
I don’t know why (I don’t know why, yeah, yeah)
