The morning after

I couldn’t sleep last night
You were chasing the birds ’till the beast caught your eye
I couldn’t sleep last night
How you look like an angel
It’s burnt in my mind
I can’t feel anything the morning after you
I can’t tell anyone the morning after you
And I hope you sleep with a merry gold
I hope you win it this time
And I pray you don’t fear the animals
I’ll save you, I promise this time

Cats & Books

If you own a cat and like to read, then you already know. If you own a cat and don’t like to read, but want your cat to pay attention to you…then listen up. Nothing attracts a cat quicker than cracking open a book. I don’t know what it is about these furry little assholes and books, but it has never failed me. The only place I can read undisturbed is in the bathtub. Every cat I have ever had has suddenly felt the need for my attention, the minute I get settled in with a good book.

Your Tears Don’t Fall

The path I walk is in the wrong direction
There’s always someone fucking hanging on
Can anybody help me make things better?
Your tears don’t fall, they crash around me”

Nothing Specific

It’s really easy to misunderstand what’s going on with other people, especially in a virtual world. So often the message depends on the perception of the reader and unless you’re adding a bit of an emote along with your words they can be easily misunderstood and thus the drama begins. What thing is for sure, there’s plenty of that happening across the grid. I think its one of the main reasons I like to voice. I don’t like my voice, but I do prefer talking to people when I can, because the inflections of one’s voice can really can make a world of difference. I realize I’m sorta rambling on about nothing specific here, but sometimes that’s just how my mind works.

Cursed

The lyrics of this song pretty much say it all. So, I’m just gonna let Jacob Lee explain it his way, but I will give you the lyrics this time. *smiles* So, right below are the lyrics and the video is beneath the details of this incredible scene that CandyDoll has created for Epiphany. There are a few more pieces and I’ve added a few from other places, but the over all feel of this scene wouldn’t be possible without the major components from CandyDoll’s Dolly Room Gacha.

Jacob Lee – Cursed

They tell me, it’s all in my mind
They don’t know, they’re yet to try
My thoughts are safer inside
I pray it hurts less this time
They tell me, it’s all in my head
They don’t know they have to check
What lies within is a mess
This pill could fix it, I guess

Don’t say, it’s all in my brain
‘Cause I can’t help being this way
I feel the changes they’ve made
Now I don’t feel the same
Leave my secrets alone
They aren’t for you to know
I hear the knock at my door
As they take me far from my home
They say, “It’s better this way”
But the voices, they tell me I’m sane
They think they’re cleansing my veins
As they hook me up in this place

They say it starts in my skull
Makes its way down through my blood
It’s been with me since I was young
But they can’t explain what it’s from
I think that I’ve had enough
I don’t know who I can trust
Leave my secrets alone
They aren’t for you to know
I hear the knock at my door
As they take me far from my home
They say, “It’s better this way”
But the voices, they tell me I’m sane
They think they’re cleansing my veins
As they hook me up in this place
Leave my secrets alone
They aren’t for you to know
I hear the knock at my door
As they make me vacate my bones

Look Forward

“Don’t waste your time looking back, you’re not going that way.” ~Ragnar Lothbrok Vikings

forward

Its kinda funny that I’m using a Vikings quote with Gothic photos to write about moving forward, but if you’ve ever met me or read my blog before, my shenanigans should not be new to you. The truth is I take photos of things I love and trust me when I say, I do not blog for anyone I do not like or respect. I do not apply to be a blogger to every store/event with apps open. I need to believe in what I’m showing you and I need to feel a connection to it. With that said, I also believe everything is connected, particularly when dealing with Second Life.
We all came here to experience another life. Perhaps an extension of the one we have, perhaps a fantasy life or the essence of who we really are displayed how we see it and feel it in our hearts. I know for one this skinny girl I show you in my blog is deep within me somewhere. I’m pretty sure she was covered in chocolate and served with a juicy steak, but she’s in there somewhere. Cannibals FTW! Okay, I’m silly, I know. My point is, we come here to be free of whatever cages and labels that society and/or our families, even ourselves, have created for us. Why then do so many of us continue to fall into the same traps? Allowing others to define us, to manipulate and abuse us?
It’s been a while now since I was in an abusive relationship and I’m so glad I’ve put that distance between the past and my present. I did that by looking forward. Over the past two years, I’ve watched some of the most incredible women overcome such enormous hurdles with their love lives. With them, I’ve cried and crumbled. Together we kept looking forward and slowly over time with each passing day we were able to let go of the past. Some days we ran from it, some days we would cling to it as if our lives depended on it. So, it truly torments my soul to watch other friends go through it. Fighting themselves to let go, to hold on, to move forward, to look back, to wallow, to pick themselves up…to move at all.
So, please let this post serve as a beacon of hope…a light house of silliness if you will. I assure you, that if you continue to look forward…force yourself to let go of the things that are holding you back and holding you down…trust in a brighter future…you will stop hurting so much and you will laugh again soon. Then you’ll be able to look back and shrug, because like Ragnar Lothbrok, you’ll know you’re not going that way.

And if you’re not going to follow me into some blissful state of future euphoria painted by a crazy person, then at least follow my lead and look hella cute while you drown in your on emotional typhoon…cuz this stuff you see is listed below and its all pretty damn awesome! go forth…shop…explore…have fun, ffs! ♥

Pants Are Overrated

For a good portion of the world, it is summertime. For me that means unbearable heat and humidity. I hate sweating, but I do appreciate the warm weather. I appreciate that, more than any other time of the year,  I can enjoy fewer layers and I find comfort in some of life’s simplest pleasures.  Ice cream, smoothies, iced coffee, capris, sandals…oh the list is endless. Yet, one of the simplest things that I find myself loving so much during the summer months is sitting comfortably at home wearing no pants and no bra!

Pants

You hear it across the web on multiple platforms, particularly by gamers, “Pants are overrated!” Well, I couldn’t agree more. While the idea of some people sitting around in the underwear communicating with people around the world might inspire disturbing images for some, I find it comforting and humorous. I’m notoriously guilty of wearing little more than you see here while curled up with my laptop, the remote, and/or a good book.
Its funny how my mind has changed about such things as I’ve gotten older, because once upon a time…ok, in my twenties…I swore by the mantra, “It doesn’t matter if its comfortable or not. What matters is that it looks good!” Now, I don’t know if its my age or if fashion has gradually embraced the necessity for comfortable clothes, thus creating more attractive styles. Perhaps, its simply my perspective and I’ve become a little more selective when shopping for clothes in the real world. Either way, my mantra has changed and now I’m more concerned with whether or not my apparel needs to be ironed. I hate ironing.
Thank goodness neither are a concern in Second Life, but lets embrace the “NO PANTS are the best pants” manta anyway!
