Impersonate a rattlesnake

“People in bars are always claiming to be boxers, hoping thereby to ward off attack, like a black snake will vibrate its tail in leaves and try to impersonate a rattlesnake.”

Raise A Glass

I’ve had this scene set up for this picture for about a week, I finally got the girls pinned down. Then it only took them three hours to finally get pose ready. Lo & behold, we take the picture and now Stef moves quickly. She finishes editing and posts hers straight away. You can see her version here, she did such an amazing job! It took me a bit longer as I’m still learning photoshop, but I’m finally happy with the result.
We genuinely had a blast, but I’m pretty sure I’m the only one in this photo wearing the outfit that I actually picked out for NYE. *laughs* These girls keep me in stitches and I can’t think of a better way to bring in the New Year than laughing with my squad. So, to everyone celebrating the end of 2019 and the beginning of 2020, I raise a glass. Happy New Year to you all and I sincerely hope that this year brings us all the love and laughter  we all desire. ♥

Krampus Krewe

So, on my recent rez day, a small group of friends gathered to run wild across the grid. We went to an art gallery where I clearly lost my mind, but we will not be discussing that. *laughs* We went a few places to dance. We went a few places to explore. And we went a few places to laugh. I had a great night and we ended it all sitting on top of a Motel sign (scroll all the way down to see a picture of that). While we were wilding out…we came up with a name for ourselves. The Krampus Krewe….okay, my silly ass came up with the name, but its kute, right? See what I did there? *grins* Yes, I’m feeling mischievous and I’ve got the perfect sidekick to help me out. I just love this little guy!

Celebrate Yourself

People grow and change all the time. I’ve always hated hearing someone say that people don’t change, because they most certainly do. And a lot of us need to. If people never changed, we would never progress in life. But its more than that. We change at different paces and in different directions. This is not a bad thing. Sadly, it does mean that some of us grow apart. It does not mean we love one another any less.
Instead of looking at our differences and cringing at the evolution of our relationships, we need to celebrate ourselves. Particularly if our personal changes are making us happier with ourselves and the world around us. We shouldn’t grieve the things we’re losing, we should celebrate the things we’re gaining. We should not feel ashamed of personal progress, ever. Let’s face it, if we are moving in a positive direction, those that love us most will take notice and they will be happy for our personal successes. Those that don’t? Well, there’s nothing we can do about that. We cannot change how others receive our changes. What we can do, is keep on keeping on, put our best foot forwards, and continue to grow in a positive direction. There’s no shame in personal growth. Go ahead, celebrate yourself. *raises a glass*

A little happier

My therapist said something really enlightening the other day and I haven’t stopped thinking about it. She said, “The most thankful people tend to be the happiest.” This took me back to a time in my life that I kept a gratitude journal. I would start and end every single day by writing about something for which I was grateful. It really did make a huge difference in my daily perspective. Sometimes it was something as simple as being grateful for a bed to sleep in, as there have been times in my life when I did not have such a luxury. Sometimes it would be something monumental, like being grateful that my mom is still alive and annoying me. The funny thing about gratitude is that when you find yourself looking at your life for things to be grateful for, you find more than you thought you would. Suddenly, your perception starts to change. So, it makes sense that we would be a little happier. *winks* So, today, I am grateful that someone has taken the time to read these words. That’s right, today I am grateful for YOU. ♥

Treat or Trick?

Here we go…into the season of delicious treats and calories galore. Here in the U.S. its all about the gluttony. We’ve got candy everywhere for Halloween. Then there’s an endless array of traditional dishes for our most gluttonous holiday of them all…Thanksgiving! Luckily for me, I just made a major lifestyle change a week and a half ago. No more crappy foods. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had my fair share of delicious junk food over the years. I won’t be missing out on anything except the calories and toxins in those foods. Over the past six months, I’ve watched a friend of mine shift to a plant based diet and she’s done super well with it. That’s not for me, but I did want to get away from the processed foods and the fried foods and all the sugars I was taking in on a daily basis. I’ve already lost some weight and I’ve got a friend doing this with me. It’s exciting to compare recipes and discuss how different we feel physically. When I saw all the amazing treats tha were presented at Salem this year, I knew I wanted to take a picture of someone sneaking off to eat the bad stuff. So, here it is…me celebrating the season.

Lounging by the pool

You gotta love summertime in Second Life. All the best swimsuits are released and we can lounge in the virtual sun as much as we want without the risks. Even if you don’t have a pool or a beach of your own, there are tons of places in SL that do. I chose to take this photo at the rooftop pool at the hotel on FMD’s full sim.  They have an entire city now and all are encouraged to take photos. It is a members only sim, but I assure you this place is worth the price. I don’t have a lot to say today…I’ve got a busy day of lounging by the pool planned. *winks*

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.

Had Enough

“Take a deep breath and count to three
And then I’ll be behavin’
I feel like people just don’t get me
Maybe I’m crazy

Think I’ve blown a fuse
There’s blood on my knuckles
The smile on my face is fake
And the vein on my head suggests you get running

I’ve had enough, had enough
Had enough, had enough yeah
Cause I’ve had enough
I think I’m reaching the limit
You should keep your distance
Cause I’ve had enough”
~ Diamante – Had Enough

Picture Perfect Patio

I’ve had so much fun creating all these decor scenes lately. I only have like six going all the time. *laughs* This one was a huge favorite of mine, bringing together some of my all time favorite stores. Not all of them, mind you, I’m not sure I could even do that. However, one thing I’ve always wanted in the real world was a deck like this. Somewhere to hang out alone or with friends, surrounded by lush greenery and the sea. This is the second week of 6 Republic and that means you’ve got until the 20th to get all the goodies, cuz this is a two week event that only happens twice a year. So, all you decor junkies best get on over there and scoop up the goods, so you can create you own picture perfect patios.
