Pets aren’t always easy

My dog gets away from me about once every once in a while or so and I feel absolutely terrible. It is always when she sees another dog and gets excited. She’s always on a leash, but I can’t always win the tug of war with her 60lbs of pure muscle. I absolutely hate the way people glare at me when this happens. I understand it, but it doesn’t make it any easier to face the fear of opening the door to step outside with my dog any easier. I’m not a terrible pet owner, but I could be a better one.
My cat will absolutely risk his life to get outside. I don’t want him to go outside and I’ve damn near killed him (accidentally) trying to stop him. He has a will of is own and a determination like I’ve never seen. He is the loudest, most destructive, personable cat I have ever owned. I’ve had a lot of cats over the years. At one point, I had five at one time!
I wouldn’t trade either of them for the world, but sometimes these two remind me that pets aren’t always easy.

You Don’t Know

“I’m the girl you’ve been thinking about
The one thing you can’t live without
I’m the girl you’ve been waiting for
I’ll have you down on your knees
I’ll have you begging for more
You probably thought I wouldn’t get this far
You thought I’d end up in the back of a car
You probably thought that I’d never escape
I’d be a rat in a cage, I’d be a slave to this place
You don’t know how hard I fought to survive
Waking up alone when I was left to die
You don’t know about this life I’ve led
All these roads I’ve walked
All these tears I’ve bled”
~ In This Moment – Whore

I’m Keeping It!

I’ve talked about getting attached to decor scenes in the past and this is definitely one of them. I created a private beach in a dome over my friend’s land. I used the Trompe Loeil – Bowline Beach Treehouse and set this little scene up right on the upper deck. I love it so much, that I am actually keeping this scene. I’m kind of excited about it, because it’s the first time in a long time I’ve been able to even consider keeping a scene, much less one so cute. I don’t say its cute to brag in anyway, I just happen to really like it a lot. I think its cute, chill, and cozy…and what more could a person ask for on their balcony, right? *shrugs* I like it…that’s what matters.

Are you that somebody?

“Boy, I’ve been watching you like the hawk in the sky
That fly and you were my prey (my prey)
Boy, I promise you if we keep bumpin’ heads
I know that one of these days (days)
We gon’ hook it up while we talk on the phone
But see, I don’t know if that’s good
I’ve been holdin’ back this secret from you
I probably shouldn’t tell it, but
If I, if I let you know
You can’t tell nobody
I’m talkin’ ’bout nobody
Are you responsible?
Boy I gotta watch my back
‘Cause I’m not just anybody
Is it my go? Is it your go?
Sometimes I’m goody-goody
Right now naughty-naughty
Say yes or say no
‘Cause I really need somebody
Tell me are you that somebody?”

Fear of Fear

“Fill my lungs full of smoke
Fill my belly full of beer
Fill my nights with bad jokes
told by folks full of fear
Fill my eyes with a stinging
Fill my time with wishing she was here
Fill my wide with the narrow
Fill my safe full of danger
Fill my bed full of shadows
Fill my dreams full of strangers
Fill my ears with a ringing
Fill my heart with a fear of fear
Well fill my cup half empty cause it’s never been half full
Fill me up, paint me over, like a damp patch on the wall
Leave me lying on my stomach on your neighbor’s bathroom floor
I’m only here till tomorrow anyway
I’m burning up, like a fever that rages in the night
Spark me up, I’m a firework I’ll burst into light
For it’s better to burn out than to fade out of sight
That’s what someone told me anyway”

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.

Plenty to Eat

Once upon a time in Second Life, prim food was absolutely horrid. I was so basic with the simple prims, sharp edges. It was a mess. Things got a little better when sculpties came along things got a bit better. Bottles and cans were far more realistic. The best creators did their best, but food was still somewhat sad and not at all appetizing. Most of it was passed around free, because no one felt justified charging money for it. Then mesh came along and eventually food was developed into such delicious looking delights that it would make you mouth water. Now we have virtual buffets. Just like fashion and decor, there seem to be no limits to the delectable items for all your party or kitchen needs.

Hurt I Can’t Shake

“If teardrops could be bottled
There’d be swimming pools filled by models
Told a tight dress is what makes you a whore
If “I love you” was a promise
Would you break it, if you’re honest
Tell the mirror what you know she’s heard before
I don’t wanna be you anymore
Hands, hands getting cold
Losing feeling’s getting old
Was I made from a broken mold?
Hurt, I can’t shake
We’ve made every mistake
Only you know the way that I break”

Remnants of Yesteryear

Why yes, you are seeing more and more decor posts on my blog. Thank you for noticing. *giggles* I tried for a while to focus strictly on fashion, but it didn’t take long for me to miss creating the decor scenes. My condo is real life is quite compact, so there’s not a lot of room for rearranging the furniture and I’m too broke to obtain new furniture. This is where Second Life provides yet another outlet for my creative side.

This particular scene is pretty special to me, as I have a weakness for the shabby chic looks and anything vintage. I suppose some would even call me vintage. *laughs* I love mixing ivy and various plants with remnants of yesteryear. I remember as a child visiting my grandmother and piling on all of her old costume jewelry which was far more fancy than the silly crap to be found in most modern day malls. I really enjoyed putting this scene together and I hope that you enjoy the photo as much as I enjoyed creating it.
