Going Through the Motions

Lately, I’ve just been going through the motions of putting one foot in front of another. I’m faking it until I make it, you could say. This year has taken quite a toll on me, as it has most of us. I’ve counted my blessings and I promise I am grateful. However, some days putting on that happy face is a huge struggle. The holidays haven’t really helped much. Fortunately, that’s almost over for a while. I’m holding on to the hope that 2021 is a better year. I want to say that it has to be, but I think that this year has proven…repeatedly…that it can always get worse.

Sundays

I don’t do this a lot, but y’all know me. I do what I want! So, today I want to tell you a little bit about Serasim. SeraSim is where Seraphim lives inworld. Their offices are there. It’s where they pretend to do work. *grins* Now, the thing is that SeraSim is not just offices. Ohhh no….they wouldn’t dare stop there. Nope. They have shops there and events! Yes, shopping events, but other stuff, too. So, first and foremost, I encourage you to go check it out. It is really well done…think Havana and a fancy shopping center merged. There are places for parties, live singers, etc. There are actual shops and….AND…they have some pretty nifty shopping events there.
For instance, you see the vagrant top in this picture? It goes perfectly with my new Cheri Jeans from Bueno! I only paid L$70 for this top! Can you believe that? IKR?!?! They have this cool thing at SeraSim called 70L SERASIM SUNDAY! They have carts all around the sim with these amazing deals. I got a badass school room backdrop for only L$70, too! Plus a wonderful couple’s pose from Vanity Poses! Seriously, you will be amazed at the deals!
I’ll be telling you more later on, but for now….get ready for some super savings on Sundays (and maybe a few days after)!

Road Trip to Nowhere

Have you ever just wanted to get in you car and drive with no destination in mind? I have and I’ve done it more than once. Of course, the problem with that is….eventually you have to stop for gas and by that time, you’re God knows where. Fortunately, there’s GPS on most phones these days. If you’re lucky you’ve got cell service wherever you’ve landed and can find your way home.
Most of us have responsibilities and loved ones that simply don’t allow us to do such a thing without hurting someone. Annnd, let’s be fair, the whole idea loses it’s appeal if you have to call and explain to someone that you’re trying to run away, but not forever…you’ll be back…eventually…
Yeah, that goes over like a ton of bricks. Trust me, I tried that way. You have to explain to someone why you feel the need to do this and by the time you’re done explaining it. Yeah, the whole idea is just ruined. Don’t even get me started on the fact that when this idea strikes, you’re never prepared and packing a bag takes so much away from the spontaneity.
I guess as we grow older and…*grumbles*…more mature. Ugh. We tend to realize what a mess can be made from a random road trip to nowhere. When I was younger and didn’t depend quite so much on medications, this was something I’d do. There were no cell phones (yes, I’m that old, fuck off) and by the time you stopped to get gas, you could justify not calling on the lack of working payphones.

Show me a sign

I gave you everything
And in return
You gave me nothing
Show me a sign
Please give me anything
I will not hide from what’s inside of me
My nemesis
I’m turning away from me
And all the things I’ve known
I don’t need your help no more
I can do this on my own
I’m taking all the blame
Resent what I’ve become
I regret everything and
There’s nowhere left to run
There is no yesterday
Tomorrow’s far away

Busy and Crazy

This week has been insanely busy and crazy. This weekend will be more of the same. I’ve been all over the place emotionally and mentally. However, today I was squealing with delight when I saw that my sim, Curiosity Lake, was featured in the official Destination Guide. I have to say that I’m rather chuffed. (Not an American term, but I like it.)
Gonna keep this post short and sweet, cuz I got a heap of work to do today. I hope you all have a great weekend and if you’re looking for something to do tonight, I’ll be hosting the Bonfire Bash part over at Burrow tonight and would love to see you!

Amarantha

One of the many brands that I’m blesssed to work for and with is Apple Blossom. Dulce36, or I know her, Reyhan is one of the most beautiful souls I’ve had the pleasure to work with on the grid. Not only is she incredibly talented, but she is still learning! I’ll admit that not all of her designs are suited to my personal taste, but one thing is for sure. The fit like a glove! I’m super excited about this Amarantha dress that she did for the Bonfire Bash edition of The Liaison Collaborative. It’s simple and plain, yet is just slightly hiked up on one side to give you a bit more sex appeal, plus the trim is incredibly detailed. I love dresses like this, because they provide the perfect opportunity to personalize the look by adding a few accessories. This is especially great for me, as I am an accessories fiend. I highly recommend you drop by the event before it closes on the 26th and try the demo. I’m sure you’ll fall in love.

Exploring Midnight in Paris

I love exploring photographic sims. I’ve been a fan of the BKLYN sim since the first time I visited. It is the absolute perfect city sim and fortunately they have a group now that allows for rezzing. They didn’t the first few times I visited. Recently, that group has done up another sim called Midnight in Paris. I finally was able to take the time to explore yesterday and it did not disappoint. It looks the best if you use their region windlight. (I’m not on the whole EEP thing yet.) This sim is perfect for photography and/or a romantic little date. There benches all over the city to provide some romantic conversations and there’s even a small cafe right on the street. I recommend turning on sounds, because the hustle and bustle of the city really adds to the experience. You might even hear some cats fighting in the alley. I did. I won’t say much more, because I encourage you to visit and see for yourself.

It’s all about Equal10!!

It’s all about Equal10!! Well, this post at least. I’ll readily admit that I am an event junkie! I love seeing designers from all over the grid all bringing out their latest and greatest in one place. Don’t get me wrong, I love some mainstore releases, too. Let’s face it, I love shopping! The thing about events, for me, is that each event usually delivers a certain flair. Equal10 has quickly become one of my favorites, because more often than not, I can count on at least three or four of my favorite stores to be presenting. This round is most definitely one of those. I did my best to squeeze in as many of my favorites as I could straight away. I mean, look at the list of credits! I love what I’m wearing. I love the pose. I love my surroundings.
I actually really love this photo and how it turned out. *winks at her haters* Yes, I used bokeh and an overlay. I know its not perfect and I’m by far no expert photographer or editor, but if you can’t love your own work….how can you expect others to like it? Naturally, with me loving the photo so much, it will probably do poorly on Flickr as that seems to be the trend when I really like a photo. *laughs* That’s just the way the Flickr cookie seems to crumble. The real point of this photo is to show off all the insanely good creations that the designers have shared with us at reasonable prices.

It's all about Equal10!!

Snowdrops

My sister, Kess Crystal, opened her winter sim today. It might seem a tad early to some, but in plenty of places around the world…the snow has been on the ground for a while. This sim is absolutely gorgeous and I highly encourage you to check it out. There’s actually activities on the sim, as well. I’m not going to tell you too much about it, because honestly I want you to go check it out for yourself. I know I’ll be coming back to ice skate on this gorgeous ice skating area behind me!

Better Things

Welp, I made it on that dreadful website again. *shakes my head* The things they say bother me far less than the idea that someone is wasting so much of their precious time focusing on some silly form of fixated hate. Whoever is posting about me, clearly doesn’t really know me, so they can say whatever they want on that silly site. That’s why they have to post anonymously, right? It’s ok if they don’t like my blog and my photos. I’m fully aware of my limitations as an SL photographer. I’ve never claimed to be some sort of expert. I do what I like. I always have and always will, as far as photography is concerned. If others like it…YAY! If they don’t…well, I understand.
I’m not quite sure where they got the man stealing idea, but that definitely isn’t me. I have NEVER done that in Second Life. Earlier this year, I broke one of my cardinal rules, sorta twice, by dating guys that had dated friends of mine in the past. However, both of my friends were aware and gave their blessings. It didn’t work out, but no one ran away from me….though, to be fair, they probably should have. *laughs* I probably am a tad bit psycho. *evil grin* I’m okay with that. I lost my RL husband to a much younger and much prettier woman. The pain that delivered is far more than any I would ever wish on someone else. So, stealing a man isn’t my style. Besides, why would I want one that can be so easily stolen in the first place?
Alas, if this person so filled with hatred for me….if they really knew me, they probably wouldn’t waste so much of their time on me. Though, by the looks of things, they probably never will, cuz I tend to surround myself with loving individuals who support each others’ endeavors. My friends and I don’t tear each other down. Nor do we look for ways to tear others down.
Once again, I must say that I do not wish this person any ill will. In fact, I’d prefer they find some happiness in their lives and fill their hearts with love instead of whatever petty jealousy or hate that consumes them. If I somehow inadvertently hurt this person, I highly doubt that is was my intention. Perhaps they do have justified reasons to dislike me, but until they are courageous enough to step out of the cowardly anonymous shadows…I cannot honestly know. Nor can I apologize. Perhaps they are the psychotic ones and have no valid reason at all. Until they come forward, I’ll just have to do what I do best…shrug it off and keep on moving forward. I have better things to focus my attention on. ♥
