Not Anymore

I’m having quite a bit of anxiety this morning. My mother and I are supposed to go get our hair cut today, but I’m in a great deal of pain. Plus, I’m so scared of the lackadaisical attitude that so many people have about the virus. The numbers are soaring in our area right now. I honestly don’t feel that she or I would survive given our kidney disease and other health issues. Once upon a time, I would have rushed out into the world hoping to get it and die. Not anymore. I finally want to live and I’m damn sure not ready to die for a freaking hair cut. I don’t want to go and I don’t want her to go either. The only alternative is for me to cut her hair myself and…well, I can trim my own without messing it up too much. I’m just not ready for some stranger to be in my personal bubble. I don’t think I can do it.

Soak it up

Look inside my eyes
I know you’re watching
Look at my demise
You know you got me
Feed me all your lies
And I just soak it up, soak it up, soak it up, baby
Thought that you were mine
But you ain’t down
Ain’t down

I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant

It’s been seven hours and fifteen days
Since you took your love away
I go out every night and sleep all day
Since you took your love away

Since you’ve been gone I can do whatever I want
I can see whomever I choose
I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant
But nothing
I said nothing can take away these blues

‘Cause nothing compares
Nothing compares to you
~ Chris Cornell – Nothing Compares to You (cover)

I have nothing left

I messed up. I messed up so big. I just had to say that my good mood was untouchable. I just had to put that out there and the universe said, “Challenge accepted.” Then the universe proceeded to take me on one helluva roller coaster ride. But instead of dipping down and back  up to level  out at the end….this ride went off the freaking tracks. I’m done. I’m not going to write about my life anymore. I’m not going to write anything. I can’t keep pretending that I’m okay and life is all rosey. I tried, because I knew people were tired of reading my whoa is me b.s. So, after today, there won’t be anything to read. Just pictures and credits. It may or may not cost me some blogging assignments & followers. I guess time will tell, but I have nothing left.

This Adventure

Life is an adventure. Half of the adventure is the journey. As much as some of us (like me) enjoy our solitude, its also important that we learn to lean on one another. Enjoy each other’s company. For one reason or another, those we love may not be around forever. I’m not talking about death. I’m talking about people growing apart. We’ve all heard the saying, “People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.” We have to be willing to accept that change happens and sometimes people grow apart. It’s not always for a bad reason and we have to be willing to accept that its not always personal. Even if it is, chances are…their purpose in our life has been met. I’ve had many people come and go from my life over the years. I resent very few, because I choose to remember the good times. I choose to remember the good that came from that friendship/relationship. So, whether near or far, its important for us to be grateful for all those people that have been part of our journey and part of this adventure we call life.

I’m bad, as bad can be

I make the devil run
I gave them poison, just for fun
I had one friend, now there’s none
I make the devil run
I broke so many bones
But none of them were ever my own
They were an army, I was alone
I broke so many bones
Oh, woah, oh
Oh, woah, oh

I’m bad, as bad can be
So bad, that it’s hard to believe
Oh, what they say about me
(I’m bad, I’m bad, as bad as can be)
I’m bad, take a look and see
So bad, that it’s hard to believe
I don’t care what they say about me
(I’m bad, I’m bad, as bad can be)

Pets aren’t always easy

My dog gets away from me about once every once in a while or so and I feel absolutely terrible. It is always when she sees another dog and gets excited. She’s always on a leash, but I can’t always win the tug of war with her 60lbs of pure muscle. I absolutely hate the way people glare at me when this happens. I understand it, but it doesn’t make it any easier to face the fear of opening the door to step outside with my dog any easier. I’m not a terrible pet owner, but I could be a better one.
My cat will absolutely risk his life to get outside. I don’t want him to go outside and I’ve damn near killed him (accidentally) trying to stop him. He has a will of is own and a determination like I’ve never seen. He is the loudest, most destructive, personable cat I have ever owned. I’ve had a lot of cats over the years. At one point, I had five at one time!
I wouldn’t trade either of them for the world, but sometimes these two remind me that pets aren’t always easy.

Slow Down

As I was driving home from therapy, I got behind a navy and silver SUV. I was thinking how great the colors looked together and why there aren’t more two tones cars. Eventually, I realized that it was a State Trooper. So glad I wasn’t tailgating. HA! So, as we’re traveling along the same road, I come upon my exit, or rather on ramp, and the trooper wants over. I motion for her/him to come on over and s/he does. We circle around the ramp and approach the interstate. Just as we get to the spot where its time for us to merge into the other lanes, this little silver sedan goes flying by at top speed. I thought to myself immediately, “Bad timing, Dude.” The trooper and I both merge rather effortlessly. I hold back from my usual shot forward, because I ain’t trying to catch a ticket. Low and behold, the trooper shot forward. At first, I thought s/he was just bolting forward because s/he can. Then I saw it. The lights started flashing and as I got closer, s/he had indeed chased down the silver sedan and was pulling it over.
In that moment, I couldn’t help but think how much a single minute in our lives can make a difference. If the silver sedan had been one minute behind us, maybe…. If the trooper had been one minute faster…if I had been one minute faster or slower, would I have been the one getting the ticket? Naturally that made me think of how fast things move in Second Life. I don’t move as quickly as most and I suppose that’s why I have remained single all this time. I know what I like. I know what I don’t like. I know myself well enough to know whether or not I’m going to be romantically compatible with people fairly quickly. I think I tend to move a bit quickly with friendships and trust friends more than I should, but I’m not ready to change either of those things about myself. Not just yet, but I think we could all benefit by take a moment to slow down. The internet isn’t going anywhere. Second Life isn’t a race and collecting partners is not the goal. I think its more important to share love and laughter as often as possible…and THAT is what I’m all about.

This Look

I don’t know about other people, but I have a really difficult time with hair fitting on my genus head. However, Stealthic is one of the few stores that I know without a doubt will fit perfectly every time. Lucky for me, he just released this gorgeous hair, Brink. It paired perfectly with this fantastic Penelope outfit from Addams. While I’ve worn the complete set together here, I love that the jacket can be worn without the top and the top without the jacket. As my friend, Sassy, always says, “Fatpack is my favorite color.” With that said, the fatpack affords you sooooo many options, plus each piece can be worn separately. So, you can wear these items with stuff from other stores and make a look that is genuinely unique to your style.
I know it’s kinda rare that I actually talk about the items I’m wearing, but I’m kinda thinking I might start talking about them a bit more going forward. I won’t go into details on everything in a photo…like ever! But sometimes its nice to share the details about the stuff we love. Who knows, maybe its just the little details you’ll need to decide whether or not this look is for you.
