Feel Better

“I prefer to focus on who I am as a person and what I stand for. We all want to look good, but I find it more rewarding to work on feeling good and going a bit deeper beneath the surface.” ~ Alesha Dixon

In Second Life, it really is as simple as spending some lindens and the click of a few buttons to look beautiful. However, it takes more than that to be beautiful on the inside. I’m not sure why people would waste so much time and energy on being a nasty human being, but it certainly seems to be as prevalent in SL as it has ever been in RL. Some people go so far as to advertise their bitchiness in their profiles, though to be fair, I suspect that’s more of a defense mechanism. So, it’s like this, surrounding yourself with people that are beautiful on the inside is going to bring out your inner beauty. It works the other way, too, so careful not to surround yourself with too much hate and negativity, cuz no matter how cute you think your avatar is…that personality won’t stay hidden for long. *winks*

Make Room

I really wanted to write something beautiful, maybe even poetic for this photo. I wanted to write about light cascading into a bedroom on a lazy afternoon. I thought about songs that fit the mood. I even looked at a few quotes about Sunday mornings. In the end, I decided that nothing quite fit the mood of the room except to say that I spent so much time putting this room together that it almost hurt when I tore it down to make room for the next scene I’d put together.
Blogging decor is so bittersweet in that way. I spend time with each creation, moving them to just the right place. Yes, I start off with a pack or two from designers I work with, but then I reach into the depths of my inventory pulling out various delights that I’ve collected to add to the scene. Then once I feel the scene is complete, I begin shooting photos from every angle and that’s when pieces get moved around again and again until I have it just right. I get my photo, I do a bit of editing, grab the credits, pop everything into my blog draft and then….tear it all down to make room for the next scene.
