My Next Life

I was just watching this movie, Jexi, and it had me laughing so hard. The jist of the movie is that instead of Siri, Alexa, Cortana, or Bixby, this phone’s AI was named Jexi. Turns out that Jexi is a real smartass. Now, in my next life, I want to be a smartass, psycho phone AI. I recommend this movie for the comic value alone. Jexi is super honest and call him on his shit. Actually, I think more men…well, people in general could use a Jexi…or a SADY in their lives! *bursts into giggles* I mean, my friends can tell you that I would have way too much fun doing that. Okay, so its a great feel good movie and its silly. It’s a bit of a romantic comedy, but its not all that romantic. It actually has a pretty decent message. If you get a chance to watch it, do it!

The Fullness of Life

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. ~ Melody Beattie

Make it so

I survived Christmas and on that day, we tore down the decorations as that has become our tradition. We’re super excited to put up the decorations on Thanksgiving weekend, but the time Christmas rolls around we are completely over all the red and green decor. The lovely Santas are packed away and all the ornaments that survived are stuffed back into boxes. It is quite an adventure for the animals. This also comes with a new arrangement for our living room. We like to start the new year with a fresh look and feel to the main room.
Tomorrow is New Year’s Eve and I am definitely ready for the New Year as this will be the first year in many that I am approaching a brand new year with a great attitude. I’m filled with hope. I am positive that 2020 is going to be a better year, because I am determined to make it so.

Feeling Festive…for Now

It is happening! I’ve already changed my display name to Sαdy M’ғɴ Clαwѕ. Now I’m posing with reindeer and dogs dressed up like elves. Don’t look now, but it seems I’ve caught the Christmas spirit!! (This would be a good time to gasp and run for cover.) I’m so excited to dress up and decorate…everything Christmas. I wonder how long this will last? I know I won’t make it until Christmas. No idea how long it will be before I’m complaining about the commercialism of the holiday and if I have to look at one more “this” or “that.” Based on experience, I have quickly tired of it in the past. I hope this year will be different, as its the first time in years that I’m feeling even remotely festive.

You Could Blow It

I really hate seeing posts that try to pit bloggers against creators (and vice versa), because we are all ultimately responsible for ourselves. Though I saw something on Facebook just the other day that attacked a creator for asking too much of their bloggers.  Creators have the right to ask whatever they want of bloggers. I’ve seen blogger apps that dictate what can and cannot be written on the blog. I know those are not creators I can blog for, no matter how much I love their store. We have to agree to those terms when we accept a position on their team. If the rules change once I’m already on a team, I’ve learned to discuss it with the blog manager…and if the rules are set in stone and I’m not okay with them…well, that’s when I thank them for the time we had together and I move on. I think that just like creators want fresh faces, the same is true for bloggers wanting to evolve. We are all forever changing.
I get the frustration from both sides, honestly. There’s just no way that everyone will be happy all the time. Its just not how the world works and SL is no different. End of the day, blogging is a choice. Rejections are just part of the deal. We are all human and there are bound to be hurt feelings all around from time to time. However, if we are careful, we can minimize that pain. For instance, using other peoples photos as an example of what NOT to do, especially when they don’t even blog for you…its just RUDE. *glares at a certain store that she will not name or support again* Calling out a store for never taking on bloggers with less than a thousand followers is also rude, because the whole point of blogging is to show the items to as many people as possible. So, yes, they want to know you are reaching a good amount of people…they are giving you their items for free afterall. Instead of resenting that creator, work on building up your following and delivering the best blog you can so that designers will WANT to work with you.
On the flip side, if a blogger takes to social media bashing away at particular creators or even creators in general, you’re taking a huge risk. There are creators and managers that see that and make note of what they see. They speak to one another and speaking out against brands unprofessionally is a huge faux pas. This can, in fact, ruin the credibility of said blogger. Clearly this is not guarantee, but it is a definitive risk. Its important that we think about how this could play out before we go ranting all over social media about how we’ve been personally wronged by a creator. We need to be absolutely sure that we are not over reacting or taking something too personally.

Her Wish

She had gathered every potion, sipped every elixir, pricked herself with the thorn of a rose, and repeated the chat a dozen plus one times…just as the witch had instructed. She felt like such a fool, sitting among all the bottles that promised him to her. She felt a fool for even believing such a love could be possible. Despite all logic, her heart ached for him and only him. Would her wish ever come true?

Gag me with a spoon??

I’m slowing getting myself back on track. I’m trying really hard to battle my depression with everything I’ve got. My inner demons will not win and in the infamous words of ever valley girl in history, I say to them, “Totally gag me with a spoon!” As I sit here laughing at that phrase, I have to wonder how THAT became such a popular saying. Like first who was wanting to be gagged and why a spoon. I mean there are so many better options. Did she want to be gagged at the back of her throat, like when you’re trying to make yourself puke? Is a spoon easier than your finger? I mean, I guess it would be…I wonder if that works. I just don’t keep a spoon handy in the bathroom, so…not something I would’ve ever tried. If that’s not the kinda gag, she wanted…why not opt for a ball gag or some other version of similar type gags? Well, clearly, I’m getting back on track of going off track…cuz this is not where I was going when I started writing. Oh well, y’all should be used to it by now.

You wanna piece of me? Too bad, I’m not pie! Silly billies! Oh I was feeling mighty fierce the day I took this photo. Isn’t it funny how clothes can completely change our mood? Depending on what I’m wearing, I might feel sexy, cute, fierce, bitchy, professional…okay, scratch that last one. Professional is not one of my looks. *laughs* Y’all know what I mean though. I know you do.

When all is said and done

When all is said and done
Tell me how to write this
Tell me how to fight this war
I’ll keep marching on
Like a broken robot
Money back guarantee
I’m in your custody
But I’m not a criminal, I can be your next big thing
Look at what I’ve become
Silly little monster
Should’ve just held my tongue
I hate the feeling of this weight upon my shoulders
Pushing the pressure down on me
You think you want the best for me but nothing really matters
If you force it won’t come, I guess I’m feeling numb
I guess I’m feeling numb
