You Do You, Boo!

Y’all know I love some Facebook drama, but rarely do I get involved. I like to just grab the popcorn and watch the showdown. The latest controversy I found was from a fellow blogger that stated there were simply too many events on the grid and she was getting disgusted by the entire scene. (I’m paraphrasing.) Oh the comments that ensued were about the best I’ve seen yet. There was no yelling or cursing or name calling! I know, its shocking right? It was almost scary as if the apocalypse was upon us and everyone had buckled down to offer suggestions. For a moment, I even thought there was going to be a winner or a leader chosen! Okay, I’m being a little melodramatic, but only because it amuses me.
Let me point out that I believe it is everyone’s right to put whatever the hell they want on their Facebook page, provided it falls within the TOS of FB. With that said, I think it can be detrimental to a blogger who depends on sponsors (for the lack of a better term) to attack (even gently) either side of the shopping community. However, the gauntlet was thrown and sides were taken. What I saw was that some bloggers have cut back, because its too much for them to keep up with. I saw creators say they no longer participated in events, because they preferred main-store traffic. I saw event organizers defend their events. I saw creators defending events.
The beacon of light was a comment about how these events would not survive without a thriving Second Life community. THAT made me smile. I have friends who own events, help run events, hell I’m the manager of one myself. I have friends that are creators, bloggers, and shoppers. I’ve been on the grid since late 2006 and I remember paying L$900 for a pair of boots that were made from nothing but prims. Sculpties did not exist yet. Flexi wasn’t even a thing yet! There were only a handful of “decent” stores and now our cups runneth over.
Rest assured my friends, there’s room for everyone. It’s all about what YOU want to do with your lindens and your time. No one is going to force to work or shop at an event, much less blog it. And to my blogger friends, I urge you to stay true to who you are and what you want to represent. In other words, “You do you, Boo!”

“I feel worthless,
Maybe I should open the drawer,
Burn the pages,
Write poems with the ash on the floor,
Pour the ink, into the sink,
& Watch it drain from the shore…
I don’t want love no more,
Though it’s the one thing I’ve been
searching for,
Though it’s the one thing that I miss the most,
Now I’m afraid to be alone…
I learnt to grow old when I was younger,
Scared of staying young,
Afraid of the thoughts that I had conjured,
That sat atop my tongue,
Knowing I’d change the worlds opinion,
If they would just, listen up…
But they won’t, now…”

all that remains

“A heart will swell before it’s hardened
With the flick of the hair, it can make you old
Another hole to dig my soul in
I’ll leave anything bare that keeps me soul
A physical kiss is nothing without it
And you close your eyes to see what it’s done
The body that lies is built up on looking
‘Cause all that remains before it’s begun”

People DO Change

I really hate the phrase, “A leopard never changes its spots.” I disagree with the meaning behind it, completely. If meant literally, then its just a fact. However, it is rarely said with literal intent. It refers to people not being able to change their true character. I just do not believe that’s true. I believe that people can and do change, especially with age. Now, I understand that the phrase is actually refers to people’s innate traits, but again, I know that people DO change. I know they do, because I have…several times. The older I get, the more I evolve and change. I think that’s true about most people. No matter how old you, think back to who you were 7-10 yrs ago. I certainly hope you changed. We learn and we grow, to suggest otherwise is simply ridiculous to me. To suggest that someone cannot or will not change is really quite an insult. It’s like suggesting there’s no hope or reason to continue living and learning.

I was the brightest light you ever knew

“I said hey you, with your world painted blue
I said fuck you, I was the brightest light you ever knew”
~ Kailee Morgue – F**k U

I’ve wasted so much of my life giving the best parts of me to people who only pretend to appreciate it, but in the end they never do. They prove time and time again that they are just another liar…another disappointment…another fake friend…another user. I’m over that now. I’m going to live my life for me and only me going forward. Its time for me to take my life back and I’m done bowing down before some undeserving asshat.
I’m always saying that I do what I want, but apparently what I wanted was to sell my soul just to hear two words that now ring through my ears like a bitter lie and the three words? Well, I’m not even going there. I’m pissed off and I’m tired of being disrespected. I’m tired of disrespecting myself. Now is the time for my “friends” to decide if they are real or not, because I’m done dealing with fake people and liars just for the sake of someone else. Those of you out there talking shit behind my back? Knock yourselves out. Your hate gives me power I never sought, but if your feelings for me are that strong…well, as the song says, “F**k U!”
Oh and before you fuckers get all paranoid about who is telling what? Well, its like this…I am an energy reader and I feed off energy like a vampire. So, when your energy is bitter and makes me sick to my stomach, I know what you’re about. I see through you and your lies. Oh and you lost out on one of the best friends you could’ve ever had. And ya know what? If you even THINK that I’m talking to/about you, then I damn sure am or you wouldn’t even think that.

Christmas Collab with Chickadee

I’ve been wanting to do more collaborations with other bloggers for ages. As a blog manager, I have access to dozens of truly talented bloggers that represent similar if not the same brands as myself. When United Colors released his last two gowns, Chickadee and I knew instantly that this was our collaboration waiting to happen. I just so happened to have a party scene already set up from a previous post (you’ll find the link for that in the details below the photo), so we just needed a few friends for a the background. We were fortunate that Ty and Dusty were will to step in to model for us rather last minute.  Tis the season for all sorts of parties from casual to formal. Don’t struggle too hard on the formal, because UC has truly outdone himself with the details and the fit on these two gowns. Click here for Chickadee’s post   and see her view on our little gathering.
Happy Holidays to all and more importantly…Happy shopping!♥

Roses in the Snow

Believe it or not, this post springs from the Challenge to Challenge. Lizzy Plantagenet gave me a rosebush and snow. For this challenge, I kinda cheated, but it IS my blog afterall…lol. Seriously though, this reminded me of a song that I hadn’t thought about in ages. It’s one of those haunting songs that stays with you long after you listen to it.

Nico – Roses in the Snow

He came your way and when he had to go
There were roses growing in the snow
Silently, you’ll go through the shadow of your soul
And you know that it was like this before we had to go

You will never see these lights
Glowing in your nights
Until you feel this way

With every moon
It is as though you’re getting closer to your soul
And then you go alone, and with no fear
Then you will know that it was like this before he had to go
And you will find that you were blind
Until you saw these lights
Glowing in your nights

He came your way and when he had to go
There were roses growing in the snow
Silently you’ll go through the shadow of your soul
But you know it was like this before he had to go

You will never see these lights
Glowing in your nights
If you don’t know
And there are roses growing in the snow

Lift Me Up

This post goes out to my closest friends…my truest friends. I won’t list them by name, because they know who they are  and I’m pretty sure they know how much they mean to me. I can’t imagine where I’d be without them. To be honest, there have been a few times that if not for them…I’m not sure I’d be here. So, this song is for you all and know that I love you so freaking much, whether you’re an asshole or a cunt…you all mean the absolute world to me. ♥
For my readers, I urge you to tell your friends today how much you love them, because you never know how much that little gesture will make. ♥
“I’m trying but I keep falling down
I cry out but nothing comes now
I’m giving my all and I know peace will come
I never wanted to need someone
Yeah, I wanted to play tough, thought I could do all this on my own
But even Superwoman sometimes needed Superman’s soul
Help me out of this hell
Your love lifts me up like helium
Your love lifts me up when I’m down, down, down, when I’ve hit the ground
You’re all I need
And if you let go, I’ll float towards the sun
I’m stronger ’cause you fill me up
But when the fear comes and I drift towards the ground
I am lucky that you’re around”

I Can’t Believe You

“I’m not upset that you lied to me, I’m upset that from now on I can’t believe you.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche

This is definitely one of my favorite quotes. I think more often than not, people tend to use it with significant others. However, let’s be fair, how many friends have you caught in a lie? I have major trust issues, but one of those issues is that I tend to be too trusting of certain people. Yet, eventually we have no choice but to open our eyes and face the truth. Some people are not real friends. They lie to us, they seriously insult us, and by doing both, they can seriously hurt us.
This is where I’m left asking myself a hoard of questions. Should I love that person unconditionally despite the toxicity of their attitude towards me? Should I try to understand where they are coming from, attempt to be the bigger person, and forgive them since they seem to be so clueless about what they are doing? Should I call them on their lies? Should I confront them about how deeply they’ve hurt me? Or do I walk away? Do I cut them from my life completely or just reduce our interactions?

this is what it feels like
