Middle Fingers

“I don’t like the music other people tend to share
Hate your loser lyrics, middle fingers in the air
I’m a starving artist nowhere close to millionaire
I prefer my Kia, middle fingers in the air
I’ll just keep on throwing middle fingers in the air
I’ll just keep on throwing middle fingers in the air”
~ Missio – Middle Fingers

Actions

Actions will always speak louder than words, you just have to know how to listen by watching. I’ve talked about friendship dozens of times. Obviously, I’m no expert. I don’t even like people that much. That’s why I spend so much time alone. The older I get, the more people I get to know, the more true it becomes that I’m happier alone more often than not. However, if there’s one thing I do know, it’s this: A real and valued friendship can conquer adversity with truth.
Disposing of a friendship without any explanation speaks volumes about the type of person you are and what value you placed on that friendship. It doesn’t say shit about why you walked away. I’m not saying that everyone is due an explanation. Sometimes, its so obvious to us that we can’t imagine the other person would question why. The thing is, if they come to you confused and you refuse an explanation, not only have you just expressed how unimportant that person is to you, but you come off  a bit cowardly in my opinion. Your reason is yours, but if you’re not ready to explain or defend that reason…well, that really says more about you than them, don’t you think?
If your attitude and demeanor changes towards a friend, trust that they will notice. Furthermore, if they approach you about that change and you deny it? Well, you might as well unfriend them with no explanation. You’ve essentially just lied to their face and said in no uncertain terms that they are not worth the truth. Authentic friendships will not unravel over a little disagreement or even a big one, if both parties are mature and care enough to work through it.
Just food for thought, because I’ve dealt with all of these situations recently. I know I’m not perfect, but I do think I’m a decent friend more often than not. I own my mistakes and I own my pain. I will tell you that it hurts to be blatantly deceived and betrayed by someone you believed in. If you ever valued your friend, why not grab some ice cream, take a little walk, and talk it out. Maybe you can’t resolve it, but you damn sure won’t if you don’t try.

Not everyone agrees with secondary photos in blogs and I’m not one to do them all the time, but on occasion I will be adding a second photo that zooms in on a few things to give a better look at the details our amazing creators put into their designs.

Downtown

“Love is a condition of the head
Wanna push a button and reset
But you’re still up in my skirt
I thought if you had a piece of me
I could keep the other 2 or 3
But now that’s not how it works
I shouldn’t be here right now
But you got me figured out
Pushing my pieces round, I know this game
And I need a miracle
To break from this ritual
Till then I’ll be saying the same thing
Take me downtown
Use my body all night
Make me feel like last time
Make it taste like love
Take me downtown
Yours until my heart dies
Give it up one last time
Give it up for love”

Prayin

“Well, you almost had me fooled
Told me that I was nothing without you
Oh, but after everything you’ve done
I can thank you for how strong I have become
‘Cause you brought the flames and you put me through hell
I had to learn how to fight for myself
And we both know all the truth I could tell
I’ll just say this is “I wish you farewell”
I hope you’re somewhere prayin’, prayin’
I hope your soul is changin’, changin’
I hope you find your peace
Falling on your knees, prayin’
I’m proud of who I am
No more monsters, I can breathe again
And you said that I was done
Well, you were wrong and now the best is yet to come
‘Cause I can make it on my own, oh
And I don’t need you, I found a strength I’ve never known
I’ll bring thunder, I’ll bring rain, oh
When I’m finished, they won’t even know your name
You brought the flames and you put me through hell
I had to learn how to fight for myself
And we both know all the truth I could tell
I’ll just say this is “I wish you farewell”
I hope you’re somewhere prayin’, prayin’
I hope your soul is changin’, changin’
I hope you find your peace
Falling on your knees, prayin’
Ah sometimes, I pray for you at night, oh
Someday, maybe you’ll see the light
Whoa oh oh oh, some say, in life, you’re gonna get what you give
But some things only God can forgive
Yeah! (I hope you’re somewhere prayin’, prayin’)
I hope your soul is changin’, changin’
I hope you find your peace
Falling on your knees, prayin'”

Outahere

I’ve always envied the people that just pack and move somewhere new with hardly any money in their pockets. I can’t wrap my mind around how they do it. All I can think about is how I’ll need money for deposits and food and rent and gas and…and…and…the list is endless. I’ve known people of all ages that have moved around all over the world with hardly any money to their names. I’ve never thought to ask any of them, how they managed it. Maybe they had more money and resources than they let on. I do know that if I had my life to live over, I would definitely have traveled more. I absolutely love the idea of packing up and just driving until I land somewhere, but that’s simply not an option for me….especially now. *sighs*

In Full Bloom

Sometime last year, someone told me that my Flickr was all black and white. I wasn’t quite sure what they meant, but they went on to explain that they meant my color palette. That most of the outfits I chose to blog were black or white. I hadn’t really thought about it that much, but looking at my Flickr through their eyes, I started to understand. The funny thing is…I love color! Lots of colors. Ask me my favorite color and I’ll tell you that it depends on what it’s for. I think I lean towards black and white in SL, because of how I tend to take photos.
Since then, I have been introducing more and more color into my photos, but now with Spring in full Bloom (see what I did there?), you all are about to see a lot more colors in all of my photos. Some of you will probably be wondering what the hell happened to me!?! *giggles* Oh and if you didn’t get the little joke up there, check the credits…you’ll get it. *chuckles*

You Won’t Stop Me

“How could this man I thought I knew
Turn out to be unjust so cruel
Could only see the good in you
Pretended not to know the truth
You tried to hide your lies, disguise yourself
Through living in denial
But in the end you’ll see
You won’t stop me
I am a fighter and I
I ain’t goin’ stop
There is no turning back
I’ve had enough
‘Cause it makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
Makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter”

Oceans

“I feel worthless,
Maybe I should open the drawer,
Burn the pages,
Write poems with the ash on the floor,
Pour the ink, into the sink,
& Watch it drain from the shore…
I don’t want love no more,
Though it’s the one thing I’ve been
searching for,
Though it’s the one thing that I miss the most,
Now I’m afraid to be alone…
I learnt to grow old when I was younger,
Scared of staying young,
Afraid of the thoughts that I had conjured,
That sat atop my tongue,
Knowing I’d change the worlds opinion,
If they would just, listen up…
But they won’t, now…”

Hattitude

There’s just something about a big floppy hat that makes me want to prance around in heels. I know that this comes from my childhood, when I would wear my mom’s wigs, talk on my princess phone (that wasn’t connected)….I’d wear her floppy hats and prance around in her heels. Looking around at FaMESHed, this outfit was immediately in my mind. I was wearing it for like a day and a half when my best friend, Tracy, showed me her version of Little Cuba made with Minimal‘s buildings at the Arcade. I was having a fit, “I need to shoot a photo there, right now!” Then to top it off, I knew the perfect pose was in Tracy’s neighborhood poses (at TLC’s Vintage Market themed round.) I stayed in this pose for so long that Tracy logged off and left me standing mid walk. So, this will be the first time she sees what I did and I can’t wait to go back and shoot more pics.
If you know Tracy, you can ask her about visiting, I know she’d love to show you around and encourage you to make use of her Little Cuba for your photos, as well.

all that remains

“A heart will swell before it’s hardened
With the flick of the hair, it can make you old
Another hole to dig my soul in
I’ll leave anything bare that keeps me soul
A physical kiss is nothing without it
And you close your eyes to see what it’s done
The body that lies is built up on looking
‘Cause all that remains before it’s begun”
