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*

My Shirt

I’ve been after Sassy to make me a shirt like this for ages. She finally did it! My very own short tee complete with under boob! She went all out, too. There are seven textures to choose from, three of them are patterns,  and six graphics, including plain. Your graphic choices are kitten (as seen below), Fierce, #blessed, babygirl, virgin, and overdressed. You can grab this awesome shirt over at Belle. I personally recommend the fatpack, I mean, with all these choices how can you possibly resist?

They called her kitten, though she was as fierce as a leopard.

Surest Way to Lose Balance

“The surest way to lose balance is by comparing yourself to other people.”

So, that’s a quote from Orange is the New Black, Season 7. Naturally, I have binged the entire season. That line struck a real chord with me, because I’m constantly doing just that. I know why I do it. I was taught to do so by my parents. Now, this is not a case of me pointing my finger at either parent. I don’t think this was an intentionally malicious lesson. Regardless of why the lesson was pounded into my head, its been there for way too long. The funny thing is that I’ve always embraced being different. I remember fighting with my mother as a teenager and screaming, “I will never be the person you want me to be…I’m not wired that way!” That is a direct quote. I’m almost positive I said it daily for years. My mother wanted me to be super girly. She wanted me to be her little princess. I sometimes wonder if she had left me to discover my own style without trying to push that shit down my throat…well, its possible I would have come around to the very style I fought so vehemently against. I doubt it. I was given religious freedom and became an atheist. Then again, I feel that was more of an informed, educational decision. So comparing them is pretty pointless. Which brings me back to my original point…why are we always comparing ourselves to others? We need to stop. Pretty sure I’ll be revisiting this topic, but for now…I’ve wandered through the mine fields of my brain too long.

Don’t waste it always doing what you’re told

“My friends always tell me I get carried away
Sometimes I spit when I talk cause I have so much to say
They don’t seem to hear me, but I guess it’s okay
It’s not their fault my mind is working overtime with no pay
They always say the same thing and it’s starting to get old
That my head can’t get sick, that it can’t catch a cold
I scratch and I pick, my insecurities poke,
My fears, my anxiety, a voice that provokes
Take a walk, clear your head, breath in, count to ten
Cause on the first page of life written in red
You’ll never make it here if you don’t learn how to bend
Don’t speak unless you’re spoken to, little girl
Someday you will find your place in the world
But a lady don’t get dirty
Someday you’ll learn to fill the empty space with empty faith
Everyday feels like a battle and I always get hurt
I was frequently told violence was never the answer
But life doesn’t abide by the rules of a child
I don’t know how to fight, only taught how to surrender
There is a certain kind of darkness that does the reaping
It usually take you right before you are sleeping
Is it the crack in the door that it finds a way to creep in
Or the crack in your brain that want you to drop dead
I don’t remember what it’s like to see with clear vision
I awake every morning like the dead has arisen
I don’t have to think this body of mine is a prison
You don’t control me, I just got to find my lights switch
But the more that I look, the further it gets
Your the only thing about me that needs to be fixed
Cause on the first page of life written in fine print
Stop looking for light, live it instead
Don’t speak unless you’re spoken to, little girl
Someday you will find your place in the world
But ladies don’t get dirty
Someday you’ll learn to fill the empty space with empty faith
My mind is a mess, but I love it nonetheless
They told me to hush, but my words are all that’s left
So on the last page of life written in gold
Don’t waste it always doing what you’re told”

I have waited

“All alone, alone again
No one lends a helping hand
I have waited, I have waited
Takes it’s toll, my foolish pride
How long before I see the light
I have waited, I have waited
For you to lay me down”

Something in the wind

“Everytime that we run
We don’t know what it’s from
Now we finally slow down
We feel close to it
There’s a change gonna come
I don’t know where or when
But whenever it does
We’ll be here for it
There’s something in the wind
I can feel it blowing in
It’s coming in softly
On the wings of a song
There’s something in the water
I can taste it turning sour
It’s bitter, I’m coughing
But now it’s in my blood”

Your Heart is as Black as Night

“Your eyes may be whole
But the story I’m told
Is that your heart is as black as night
Your lips may be sweet
Such that I can’t compete
But your heart is as black as night
I don’t know why you came along
At such a perfect time
But if I let you hang around
I’m bound to lose my mind
‘Cause your hands may be strong
But the feeling’s all wrong
Your heart is as black a night
Your heart is as black
Oh, your heart is as black as night
Ah-ah ooo”

Hope for Harlow

We all know how deeply we can connect with one another in this beautiful virtual world. Some of us knew about that connection before we ever stepped a pixelated foot on the grid. I wonder how many knew how connected we’d become to one another’s families? People we never met, yet because our friends are going through something with these people, we feel connected to them. I never expected to cry and worry about someone else’s family member being sick. Yet, here I am worried sick about my friend’s dad. I’d trade places with him to take this off her plate if I could, but the world doesn’t work that way. All I can do is send lots of love and healing energy her way. However, I am asking my readers to please say a little prayer for her and her family. I believe if we all send that positive energy her way, it can and will make a difference.

The Other Side

“The shadows on the way
But you’re the space between
What’s on the other side
Is closer than it seems
Smoke up in the sky
Here, take my key
Step into the light
Remember me here
‘Cause I would walk through the fire
And I would give you
Every last breath ’til there’s nothing left”
~ Klergy – Walk Through the Fire
