Only took you ’bout a minute

You don’t know what you have till it’s gone
Best I ever had to the worst, still makes me mad
From moving way too fast to moving on
Whispers of the past, like scars that ever last

And then you send me that shit
Why’d you send me that message?
Won’t you show some respect
To that chick you tryna mess with
Baby, don’t you remember
Only took you ’bout a minute
To go make a bad decision

Only took you ’bout a minute

If the dog allows it

It never snows in LA
You’d never know it was a holiday
I don’t believe that Jesus Christ was born to save me
That’s an awful lot of pressure for a baby
But here we are again, with family or friends
Some extra time to spend and I’m not mad about it
Don’t waste a dime on me, just want your company
Beside a Christmas tree, if the dog allows it

You Can’t Tell

You can’t tell what someone has been through in real life just by looking at them. You sure as hell can’t do that in Second Life. Yet, for some reason, people in SL tend to judge one another so much more harshly than they judge others in real life. We scream about body shame, micro aggressions, and other issues in SL. We gather our friends and point fingers, we blast them on social media, but how often do we do that in real life? Do we gather our neighbors to ostracize someone else in the neighborhood? Do we chase down cars leaving stores that have offended us? No, you don’t, I don’t…no one really does. I just don’t understand why being behind a keyboard makes some people so rude. Yes, I understand that there’s a certain degree of anonymity, but to me that’s even more reason to be kind. We have no idea who we are dealing with on the other side. Not really. Even with profiles full of information and clues, we can not tell what someone else is dealing with or what their life has been like or why they choose this virtual existence. I think it is pretty fair to say that everyone has been through a lot this past year. So, let’s go into this next year with more kindness and compassion. Please.

Worthy of Gratitude

This past year is definitely one for the history books. I could easily tear it all down and rant about all the wretched events that have occurred. I’d rather count the blessings and rejoice in the lessons. We all know what we’ve lost and there’s nothing to gain by focusing on our losses. We need to regroup and gather all that hope we had at the beginning of this year. We need to take that hope and truly visualize a better year for all of us. We have to let go of the hate, the sorrow, and the misery and move forwards with love, joy, and faith.
It’s time for us to appreciate the people that uplift us. It’s time to reach out to those less fortunate. It’s time for us to embrace the lives we still get to live. It would be so easy for me to focus on my limitations and the restrictions in my life. Instead, I choose to embrace the freedoms and abilities that I often take for granted. Ok, I can’t be on my feet for more than ten minutes without experiencing some pretty intense pain, but I CAN be on my feet for ten minutes! I can walk from one room to the next. I can walk to my car. I have rooms. I have a car. Those are blessings. I appreciate them so much. I have haters that want to post lies about me. I also, have some of the most wonderful friends I could have ever hoped for in my life.
So, that’s it. In looking at the yuck this year has delivered….if I dig deep enough, I also find some pretty awesome advantages. If you take a good look at your own life, I bet you’ll find some remarkable things worthy of gratitude, too.

I’m just enjoying life…

I opened my sim to the public yesterday and I cannot begin to tell you how sweet people have been when visiting. I surely hope it stays that way. People have been both generous and kind. And I’ve managed to scare a few with some little hidden gems I have around the sim. *giggles* It truly is wonderful to see people visiting the sim. It makes me feel good that they want to see it and experience it for themselves.
None of that really has anything to do with this picture, but I did take it on the sim….in one of the three houses that are currently there….for now. I will be changing the sim all the time. I already want to tear down one of the houses and do something else. *laughs* For now, I’m just enjoying life…as you can see. There are lots of changes on my horizon and I’m excited about each and every one of them.

I'm just enjoying life...

Busy Days

The last few days have been busy busy busy, as are the first few days of every month. *laughs* This is nothing new. However, yesterday I had to leave the house and that’s always an anxiety attack. Luckily, I wasn’t in the voting line too long. My mother used to work the polls and she knew the best time for us to go. She picked the absolute best time, too. There wasn’t much of a line when we got there, but as we left there was a line going quite a ways down the sidewalk outside. It was really odd seeing so much security surrounding the premises, but I suppose it was good to err on the side of caution. I’ll admit that I was a bit nervous as I live in a very very red state and I am quite blue. And that’s the extent of what I will discuss about politics. I won’t unfriend those that disagree with me, as I feel we all have our reasons for feeling the way we do. I have family that is red and while I don’t agree with them, I can still love them….from a distance. *grins*

Mostly Anxious

Today is going to be an exceptionally busy day for me. I have to go out into the cold world. Yes, I mean, literally cold. I need to vote and run some errands. Ugh, I so hate leaving my house. Meanwhile, at home…inworld…its that time again and I need to get TLC open and ready for our dedicated shoppers. I’m excited about this round and hope to do some pictures of some of the amazing designs our creators have exhibited this round. I don’t have a ton to talk about right now. I’m most feeling really anxious about going out today and facing the voting lines.

Dear Customers

Some customers in Second Life make the most unrealistic and rude demands I have ever seen. From demanding attached panties, to suggesting that a successful designer is going to be crippled by the lack of a purchase by someone that has NEVER previously shopped their store before. Meanwhile, the CSRs, managers, and designers bite their proverbial tongues, put on a smile, and find the nicest ways possible to dismiss these incredulous demands. Once again, we are all witness to an elite group of people that genuinely think its okay to act like complete assholes from the safety of their keyboards and I will never understand it.
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the option of built in modesty panties as much as the next girl, but I have and never will message a creator and insult them, demand, or even suggest that they cater to MY desires. I have personally witnessed people have a complete meltdown simply because a dress doesn’t come with attached panties. Seriously? Do these people address Calvin Klein because he didn’t sew panties into a dress? Of course not. These items are sold separately, as they should be. I’ve had customers absolutely raging because a black silk textured top didn’t match some black sweatpants. First of all, I want to know why they’re wearing silk tops with sweatpants, cuz that makes no sense. Oh wait, you wanted to dress up your sweats with heels? Oh okay, cuz THAT makes much more sense. *rolls her eyes* While some designers do keep to a mix and match color palette, not all do. Some creators choose to apply textures that are true to real life textiles. I appreciate both styles. Once again, I feel like we’re beating a dead horse by suggesting that people try on demos first. If you don’t try a demo first, you really should not complain about the shade of a color or the fact that you can wear the shoes you wanted to wear with those pants. Honestly, the world does not revolve around the desires of one virtual shopper.
I have to believe that these types of people have absolutely no clue as to the amount of time spent on one article of clothing. For instance, one shirt…it takes time to come up with a style, then create that style digitally….THEN there’s the rigging…seriously? Are you going to bitch, because YOU choose to wear one of the less popular bodies? I’m not going to call out any particular body, but surveys done by at least five designers that I’ve seen have shown that Maitreya and Legacy are the most popular bodies being used. So, considering the amount of time it takes to rig for just ONE body, much less the seemingly endless list of bodies out there, I cannot expect or even imagine that ANY designer would create for every single body. It’s simply not cost effective or efficient. It’s just like real life, I don’t expect to every thing out there to fit my fat ass and we all know that one size does NOT fit all! I realize you want what you want, but guess what? No one gets everything they want all the time. So, suck it up, buttercup…decide what’s more important to you. You wanna wear that obscure body? GREAT! Please don’t expect EVERYONE to create for it. Better yet, join the group for your body and ask the other people in that group where they shop. You’d be surprised how many people will offer to help you.
Here’s the thing, no one is forcing anyone to be in SL, much less is anyone holding a gun to anyone’s head to shop at any one store specifically. With all the crazy shit that’s going on in this world, especially this year, why would you ever begin to allow yourself to get so enraged over not being able to wear a certain item of VIRTUAL clothing??? Either calm down or log out. The way I see it…if you’re getting that bent out of shape over virtual clothing, you probably have some deep seeded issues in your real life that need to be addressed. Thus you really should stop wasting your precious time and energy on such trivial matters in a virtual world. Instead, grab a book or even a website to help you resolve your REAL problems. I assure you, no one signed into Second Life to be your personal punching bag….and one more thing, before messaging the creator, take a moment to read the included notecard and the designer’s profile. Seven times out of ten, you’ll find your answer and save everyone some time. *winks*
….most likely I will touch on this topic again, soon…lol

Wild One

What sweet world is this? Honey on the vine
School kid dreams came true then passed in the night
I used to dream about people like you
Now I don’t know why?
I used to sing about people like you
Now I just get high
I get wild on you baby
I get wild and fucking crazy like you never knew
