Invisible

I don’t wanna talk about it, there isn’t much to say
I don’t have an excuse to why I won’t come to your party
And I don’t want my picture taken, I’d hate it anyway
No, I don’t wanna spoil your night, just go have fun without meI’m pushing food around my plate
‘Cause my father said I’m overweight
Well, maybe he’d feel better
If I just disappeared altogether and I
Got so good at faking smiles
I can do it for a little while
Just don’t ask me if I’m okay
‘Cause I’m not okay, noIt’s hard to show you something invisible
No tears, no scars, no bruises, It’s not physical
It’s covered up and hidden tight
Beneath the skin, inside the mind
You wouldn’t even notice, you wouldn’t even know
Invisible, invisible, invisible

Dip my toe

I don’t have a lot to say, because I’m disappointed in people again. It never fails to surprise me how some people can be so low down and dirty. Every time I try to dip my toe into being social again, I remember why I keep to myself. So, rather than rant on about lies and pain and all the other garbage I’m feeling right now. I know this is just part of life and I’ll be okay. I’m just in the middle of a bunch of disappointment at the moment. So, for now, I’m going to keep this short and wish you all a great month. ♥

Paw to the Jaw

I love my cat. I really do, but I’m starting to understand why people prefer dogs. I woke up this morning to a paw to the jaw. Yep, that’s right, he walked on my face. My reaction was a slinging arm which resulted in a cat flung across the bed, followed by a soft murr. This was not a wounded cat sound. Trust me, I’ve heard plenty of those noises. Step on a cat’s tail just once and  you’ll never forget it. No, just three little gentle murrs. I couldn’t go back to sleep at this point. I had to get up and find out if he was okay. I’m not a monster, ya know? He’s fine. Once he saw that I was awake, his attitude suddenly changed. I swear that he looked at me and in his little meow language said, “Oh, you’re up! Feed me?”
Needless to say, I fed the little bastard and now he’s lying comfortably on his perch, licking himself. I’m pretty sure he’s quite proud of himself this morning. *looks out the window* FFS, the sun isn’t even up yet. I suspect there’s a nap in my future.

How ’bout these notions

I hear the birds
When they’re singing
I hear the sirens
When they’re ringing
But I can’t take my mind off of you
A thousand words, pouring out
The distance of over there
Is moving on and out
You said it’d be alright
How ’bout these notions
Hmm, they’re deep as ocean
Calling out my name
Screaming out in vain
Singing hallelujah
Tell your mother, she don’t understand
Tell your mother, she’s not listening
Why don’t you tear my heart
The chain is made of string
I roll the dice
You seal the deal
That don’t matter
Cause pain will heal
I will follow you
Into the dark

Re-imagined

When I found the point of life
It came creeping towards me
The shape of eyes

It was all this re-imagined
It was a different kind of speech
It was repetition
It was what you wanted it to be

When I saw the shape of sound
Everything came spiraling

It was all this re-imagined
It was a different kind of speech
It was repetition
It was what you wanted it to be

I’d like to tell you

I’d like to tell you that my sky’s not blue, it’s violent rain
And in my world, the people on the street don’t know my name
In my world, I’m seven feet tall
And the boys always call, and the girls do too
Because in my world, I’m constantly, constantly havin’ a breakthrough (Hmm)
Or a breakdown, or a blackout
Would you make out with me underneath the shelter of the balcony?

‘Cause I don’t need anyone
I don’t need anyone
I just need everyone and then some

Loyalty

I see a lot of quotes and memes on Facebook about loyalty. If you’re on any form of social media, I’m sure you’ve seen them, too. Now, before I go any further, I’m not one of those contrary types that argues with memes and quotes, especially on the posts themselves. Mainly, because I don’t care that much about such things, but also because its super annoying when people argue with memes. With that said, I am going to point out one major flaw with the theme of all these blind loyalty, unconditional love, ride till you die kinda quotes and memes.
Here’s what got me started, I came across a quote/meme that read: Nothing is more attractive than loyalty. Well, I feel a bit like Dwight Schrute from The Office (U.S. version) when I say, “WRONG!” I mean loyalty is nice, don’t get me wrong, but to say nothing is more attractive? That’s not something I’m going to know about someone for a while. I can see how loyal someone is to someone else, but I can’t know that they will show me that same loyalty. Nor can I know who is deserving of such. Loyalty is really one of those things that come on a case to case basis. Let’s be honest, none of us are 100% loyal to everyone. Loyalty is something we earn from one another. I will be loyal to a friend until they are no longer deserving, but I’m not going to be loyal to someone that proves themselves to be toxic or dangerous or reckless. I mean, Hitler has some very loyal men under his regime, does that make them attractive? Not to me! So, no, I’m sorry, there are a lot of things more attractive than loyalty….like self respect, boundaries, a nice ass, a beautiful smile, a sense of humor…just to name a few.

No Hat, Yet, Sis!

Would you look at that? Sady got herself a Valentine! Well, he found me, but the point is we’re together and we’re happy. It’s been a very long time since I seriously dated anyone in Second Life. I tried to date a friend of mine a few months ago, but that just didn’t work out for us and he eventually left Second Life. He even gave me his avatar. That’s two guys that have given me their avatars now…so, if you need a male model, hit me up! LOL Hmm, maybe I should change my name to the Black Widow! RIP Joe, you’re doomed now! Nah, I really like Joe…I might even love him…*blushes*
Alright, so I’ll fill you in…cuz everyone keeps asking the same question. “How did you meet?” Well, we actually met years ago at a club named Exodus that my sister owned. (Technically, she still owns it, but she closed it a few years ago.) Apparently he was a noob then and I was too caught up in some other bullshit to remember him. Though, to be fair, I did remember his name. Turns out he also dated a dear friend of mine. The minute I realized he had dated my friend, Tempy, I had to talk to her. Unlike so many people in the world, I don’t like to date men that my friends have dated. (Another reason I’ve been single so long.) Well, not only did Tempy give her blessing, but she’s become our biggest cheerleader. In fact, I’m not sure that I would even be with him now if not for her encouragement. Ffs, I got off track again! Why didn’t you stop me? I know…I know, you couldn’t if you tried.
Okay, so he hit me up on Facebook with a joke about a meme I had shared. He had my attention straight away with his sense of humor. From there, we met inworld to hang out…and well, we’ve been inseparable ever since. He’s pretty freaking amazing. He’s made me laugh, cry, yawn (time zones suck), and most of all…he’s made me very very happy. He’s even battled my demons (an ongoing job, sadly) and nothing I’ve done has run him off yet. *grins*  Now here’s the part that my sister will latch onto…he’s even mentioned a wedding..*shudders*…I told him he can propose on our one year anniversary. Until then, no more wedding talk…so to Kess, “NO HAT YET, SIS!”

She didn’t want to be here

She stood in the doorway, smoking her cigarette. She barely noticed the cold, but it was enough to keep her from crying. She inhaled the crisp cool air deep into her lungs, exhaling slowing through her mouth. She didn’t want to be here. Socializing. Explaining to everyone that her marriage had failed. Thanking them for the compliments. Thanking them for their condolences. Yes, he is a jerk. Yes, she is better off. Yes, she does seem to be handling it well. She doesn’t even bother explaining how depressed she’s been for the last three years. She doesn’t explain that reliving it over and over was pure hell. She simply excuses herself and goes out for a smoke. She looks at her car and thinks to herself, “Next cigarette, I’m going home.”

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.
