I call her SteffyCakes, Schmeffy, and S3, among other things

I just want to take a minute to tell you about my dear friend and neighbor, Miss Stefania Giano. I call her SteffyCakes, Schmeff, and S3, among other things. You can call her Steff. *giggles* She is an amazing, intelligent mother of two in real life and in Second Life, she’s an incredible blogger, not to mention she works for some pretty ilustrious events …*cough* FaMESHed…*cough*…Uber…*cough*….ANDDDDD she’s my neighbor!!! Like she lives right next door!!! She is so much fun to be around and she can be a complete nutter…though I’m not sure I’m supposed to tell people that. Oh and she will take one for the team…just ask Ori…*looks around innocently*…or you can ask to see her baby hydra…*grins.* I’m really quite blessed to have this fantastic lady in my life and if you ever meet her, you’ll know why within minutes.

Surround Me

Baby take me outside
Kiss me in the moonlight
I just want you to touch me
I don’t wanna waste no time
You don’t even know me
But I want you to show me
What it feels like to be alive

The lights go down
I want you around me
Whoa

Don’t overthink it
Just finish up your drink
And surround me, surround me
The night ain’t over
We’re far from being sober
Surround me, surround me
‘Cause I like you, I like you, I like you a lot
How to see through the smoke
I don’t know how you found me, you found me
The night ain’t over
We’re far from being sober
Surround me, surround me
~ Leon – Surround Me

Last One

With any luck, this will be the last picture edited without the use of Photoshop. I’m taking that break I mentioned before and I’m working on learning some new techniques. I’m using Black Dragon to take the photos and I’m using Photoshop to edit. This is going to be a huge change for me, so it might even seem like my photos are getting worse before they get better. I certainly hope they don’t get worse and obviously, that isn’t the goal, but that’s how it goes sometimes, isn’t it? Take time away from any of my blogging obligations is going to be difficult enough as it is…I don’t know how NOT to blog anymore. So, yes, you will still see some stuff from me, but probably not two or three posts a day. *laughs* I just don’t have the time that I once had, not to mention that I want to make this about quality, instead of quantity. Wish me luck and feel free to contact me privately with any feedback you might have. I can handle constructive criticism. I promise.♥

Feels like Forever

“How do you feel? That is the question
But I forget, you don’t expect an easy answer
When something like a soul becomes initialized
And folded up like paper dolls and little notes
You can’t expect a bit of hope
And while you’re outside looking in
Describing what you see
Remember what you’re staring at is me
‘Cause I’m looking at you through the glass
Don’t know how much time has passed
All I know is that it feels like forever
When no one ever tells you that forever feels like home
Sitting all alone inside your head”

Pushing Imaginary Buttons

Just the perfect song…and today I’ve got no words of my own to share…so here ya go…

Sia-Buttons

You got me pushing imaginary buttons
Step away from me lover, away from me lover
You got me counting imaginary school children
Get away from me lover, away from me lover
Yes, I can see that your carpet is animated
Walk away from me lover, away from me lover
Yes, I see open wounds in everyone I’ve dated
Away from me lover, get away from me lover
I am no good for you
I’m seeing ghosts in everything I do
I am no good for you
I’m seeing ghosts in everything I do
I am no good for you
I’m seeing ghosts in everything I do, oh oh oh oh
I am no good for you
I’m seeing ghosts in everything I do, oh oh oh oh
You got me turning all the lights on and off
Walk away from me lover, away from me lover
When will you see that I am carrying this stuff?
Walk away from me lover, away from me lover
Can’t you see that I am losing my marbles?
It’s marvelous losing another, losing another
I am no good for you
I’m seeing ghosts in everything I do
I am no good for you
I’m seeing ghosts in everything I do
I am no good for you
I’m seeing ghosts in everything I do, oh oh oh oh
I am no good for you
I’m seeing ghosts in everything I do, oh oh oh oh
Walk away from me lover, away from me lover
Get away from me lover, away from me lover
Step away from me lover, away from me lover
Walk away from me lover, away from me lover

Shut Your Mouth

This is one of those times that the lyrics can say so much more than I can.

Garbage – Shut Your Mouth

Welcome
We love you
We hate you
We love you
We want you
We need you
We wish we were like you
They say you’re a saint
You’re a whore
You’re a sinner
That he had you
He made you
He can’t live without you
Would you confess if we asked
That you nurture the urge
To declare that it’s time
To settle down
With a man of your own
You want a baby
A family
A piece of security

Shut your mouth
Try not to panic
Just shut your mouth
If you can do it
Shut your mouth
Try not to panic
Just shut your mouth
If you can do it
Just shut your mouth

What’s your opinion of the dire situation
In our land here
Our guest here
Of course you’ll be nice here
How do you feel about God and religion
Are you good people
Bad people
Guess it doesn’t matter people
Your place
My place
Make her bring that famous face
You got some
You want some
You wanna let me get you some
We know your music but of course we’d never buy it
It’s too fake man
Right man!
(We don’t give a fucking damn)

Shut your mouth
Try not to panic
Just shut your mouth
If you can do it
Shut your mouth
Try not to panic
Just shut your mouth
If you can do it

I hear you say it
Play it smart girl
Win the game love
Give’em what they want
What they want to see and you could be a big star
You could go far
Make a landmark
What have you been reading you smart girl?
Win the game love
Give’em what they want
What they want to see and you could be a big star
You could go far
Make a landmark
Make a shitload

And the world spins by
With everybody moaning
Pissing, bitching and everyone is shitting
On their friends
On their love
On their oaths
On their honor
On their graves
On their mouths
And their words say nothing

Shut your mouth
Try not to panic
Just shut your mouth
If you can do it
Shut your mouth
Try not to panic
Just shut your mouth
If you can do it
Just shut your mouth

I wanted to say something
Oh shut your mouth
I wanted to say something
Just shut your mouth
I wanted to say something
Oh shut your mouth
I wanted to be something
Just shut your mouth

Shut Your Mouth

Bad Moon Rising

“I see a bad moon a-rising
I see trouble on the way
I see earthquakes and lightnin’
I see bad times today”
Creedence Clearwater Revival Bad Moon Rising

Its no secret that I’m from the South and down here we’ve got a lot of superstitions. I’m not a superstitious person, but when you wake up from a nightmare about dead cats, big snakes, and really bad coffee…well, that first cup of coffee better be a good one. When its not…lets just say I’m hearing the whisperings of my  long dead grandmother in my ear as I try to salvage this coffee. Give the song a listen…let’s just say I’m a bit leery about this day already.
What I’m not leery about is the abundance of amazing items being created across the grid. If you can’t find something to wear, you aren’t looking hard enough, and let’s be honest, in SL? Yeah, you can walk around showing off your pretty lingerie like a Victoria Secrets model at promotional party. So, get your shop on…I, for one, will be putting on my fierce facade as I prepare for this ominous day!

Leaving it Behind

“It was a life I didn’t want to leave behind.It was a life I didn’t want to forget.”
Maggie Stiefvater, Linger

Moving on is sometimes the absolute hardest thing to do. Leaving people, places, pets, things, habits…we get attached and for me it always rips at my soul. Sometimes we do the leaving, sometimes we’re the ones being left…but both scenarios can be equally heartbreaking. As 2016 is coming to a close, there are a lot of things I’m walking away from and I refuse to keep looking back. It has been a year of great loss, shock, change, and dismay. I’m ready to leave it all behind, especially the negative emotions that accompanied it. I’ve packed my bags with all the good stuff and to the rest, I bid you farewell.

I’ve shed more than my share of tears for loss this past year. I’ve been blessed with some amazing people in this incredible virtual world. While I’ve had to walk away from quite a few and some walked away from me, the number of truly incredible people that have become such an integral part of my Second Life is astounding. I cannot remember having so many friends in SL that I cannot possibly keep up with everything they’re doing as well as my own life. I love it, though.

leaving-it-behind1

As I march forward into the new year, I plan to do my best at keeping up with those that want to be an active part of my life. I plan to embrace what’s left of my real life and to truly make my mark. Determination and desire, those are my words as I look forward.
And as I look back one final time to all that I’m leaving behind…well, I’m shedding my last tears. I know that 2017 will have its share of heartaches, but I have a feeling that there’s an abundance of blessings waiting and I’m hoping to share them all with my friends and family.
