Cupid Threw Up

OMG! Cupid threw up all over the grid! Fuck it, he threw up all over the damn world. You can hardly go anywhere in SL or RL without being flooded in various shades of pink and red, not to mention all the hearts. Second Life will be no exception, especially considering how many people get married and partnered every other week. I’m not judging…I swear. >.>
I happen to love hearts. Just the shape of them and I have a huge heart with lots of love to share. However, I’m not an especially romantic person. I always knew there were different types of love, but it was only a recent discussion with a friend that taught me that these different types of loves have names. So, off I went seeking some knowledge on the four types of love: Eros, Agape, Phileo, and Storge. I actually found a really great blog on the subject that is aptly titled: Four Kinds of Love; Eros, Agape, Phileo, & Storge. So, if you’re like me and looking for a different way to celebrate a holiday with history as interesting as the different types of love, try some light reading on both subjects. I know I plan to do some more reading and who knows, I might even end up writing more about it.
If you are looking to decorate & celebrate, there’s no shortage of lovely Valentine themed items to be found. You can start at FaMESHed where you’ll find this lovely bedroom suit that offers both gray and pink versions of several items, as well as a lovely free gift to those in the FaMESHed Update group. Plus, Vinyl made the cutest little babydoll top with shorts and named it after me….I was so surprised and honored, as I have been a long time fan of the store. So, make sure you check that out…just think you can wear me! Sorta…lol.

City Lights

Sometimes a song just embodies a feeling, but combine it with just one picture and both come together to create something amazing. That’s really what I hoped to do here.

Palastic – City Lights

City lights, the urban landscape,
Stands before our eyes.
City lights, our lives are caught up,
In these neon lights

Oh, so very frightened the park will seem.
Yet, we do our best to cherish one another,
City lights, although I love you,
Sometimes hate with doubt.

Oh, so very frightened to be alone,
Yet we do our best to keep a civil distance
City lights, although I love you,
Sometimes hate with doubt.

I cannot solve the mystery
Of what is fake and what is real,
I cannot solve the mystery,
Of who we are and who we’ll be!

City lights, the urban landscape,

Stands before our eyes.
City lights, our lives are caught up,
In these neon lights

Oh, so very frightened the park will seem.
Yet, we do our best to cherish one another,
City lights, I’ll always hate you,
‘Till the end of time.

I’m pretending to,
Be surprised at you lying.
You pretend not to,
See the passion inside.

We are trying to,
Understand everything.
You’ve decided to,
Let the light of me in.

We are trying to,
Understand everything.
You’ve decided to,
Let the light of me in.

Oh Deer

When I was putting this scene together, I couldn’t help but get lost as I was thrown down memory lane. Earlier this year, I lost my aunt. I shouldn’t say I lost her, because to be honest, I didn’t really like her. My mom lost her sister. My mom was and still is quite heartbroken. While I didn’t like my aunt very much, there were things I liked about her. I loved visiting her for a few days at a time, because she lived on a mountain in the hills of West Virginia. I know, I know, but seriously, its a beautiful state, especially in the fall when the leaves are so vibrant. I loved being so enveloped in mother nature. There were deer that would come into her yard every night as the sun was going down and you never knew when you’d see a bear lurking about looking for apples. My aunt was especially gullible and I even had her hunting ghost orbs in the Catholic cemetery at the bottom of the mountain once. *laughs* Her home was rustic and so far removed from modern society to include dial up internet as it was all she could get where she lived.
I didn’t agree with her views on life, religion, or politics. I didn’t think she was a very nice person, but there we managed to share some funny moments. Like the time we mouthed words to each other and made my mother think she was going deaf. She fought hard the last few years of her life and finally couldn’t fight anymore. I understood that and I admired her decision to tell her family she was done fighting. To say goodbye and let her go. I know that took a lot of courage for her, considering how close she was to her children and how much she loved her husband. I dedicate this post to her, even though she has never approved of me, my lifestyle, my beliefs, etc. *laughs*

Obstacles

obstacles

I’ve heard many times that the state of one’s bedroom is a direct reflection of their state of mind. *looks around in RL* Well, I’m screwed! My room is not so big, but I’ve managed to squeeze quite a lot of furniture and stuff in here. Its like an obstacle course. Well, that proves kinda true, doesn’t it? My mind is definitely an obstacle course. Its not my fault! There are squirrels EVERYWHERE!!! Not to mention shinies and I must have them all!!!
Screw the decor, that crystal skull looks perfectly normal next to the porcelain grasshopper! Yes, my TrueBlood DVD set does look awesome next to my Kim Addonizio books! Yes, I have cleaning products tucked into the wicker basket on the bottom shelf, ignore the dust, please.
Whether they’re obstacles in our rooms, on the road, or in our heads, we all encounter them sooner or later. Sometimes the way we maneuver them can alter our course so much that it changes our destination. The point remains, we will all face obstacles in our life, but by giving up we become our biggest obstacles yet.

A lot of people give up just before they’re about to make it. You know you never know when that next obstacle is going to be the last one. Chuck Norris

Stop & Smell the Roses

Shopping heaven has begun, with some major events kicking off like Bloom and Epiphany, then there’s Luxe Box and Kustom9…not to mention Uber is just around the corner and then another round of FaMESHed! Yes, I know there are even more events than that going on…let’s not forget the Fifty Linden Friday rolls around every week…not to mention so many other events that are still going on like ON9…my goodness the list is endless. What I love most is that with almost everything having finally made the conversion to mesh and the prim allowance increase on land, we can finally fill our shelves with tons of gorgeous little knick knacks and flowers, picture frames and more. So, shopping is even more fun that ever. I no longer have to stop myself from buying those adorable collectibles, because I can proudly display them all now.
If I’m completely honest, I can tell you without hesitation that unpacking all my little treasures and finding homes for them all is one of my favorite past times in Second Life. When its all said and done, I can just sit back, play some great tunes and enjoy the fruits of my labor…and sometimes I can literally stop and smell the roses..like the ones on my shelf.

Steampunk

“Steampunk is…a joyous fantasy of the past, allowing us to revel in a nostalgia for what never was. It is a literary playground for adventure, spectacle, drama, escapism and exploration. But most of all it is fun!”
George Mann

I love this description of Steampunk, because it suits us all so well in Second Life, too, doesn’t it? This is a virtual playground full of adventures, exploration, plenty of spectacles, and God knows we’ve got more than our fair share of drama. I think for most of us its a form of escapism, as well as a creative outlet. I don’t have a lot of experience with Steampunk, so I won’t even pretend to know anything about it other than it looks super cool! Its fun to dress up and decorate with various steampunk and industrial styles in SL. I’ve gathered quite a collection over the years and have rarely displayed any of it outside of my home (which I am constantly changing), but when I saw this corset from Elegance Boutique, a steampunk scene immediately began unfolding in my head and this is the result.

steampunk_011

I’ve listed everything in the photos and its quite a list. Just know that it was the corset that sent my mind whirling into the Eye of the Storm that is now my little world of Steampunk. As there are soooo many color options available, just imagine what it will inspire you to do. *winks*

Broken

It’s impossible to get through this life without some heartache and heartbreak. I’ve been going through more than my fair share of both lately and quite frankly I’m getting a little tired of it. I feel so very broken to the core of my soul. I’m quite sure my quota has been met for a good long while and to make sure I protect the few remaining pieces of my shattered heart, I shall lock them away behind some very tall, strong walls. Yes, I know I’m not supposed to give up, blah blah blah. I do what I want and right now, as I lick my wounds, the plan is to not get sucked into another situation where I fall and get hurt. I’ve loved and I’ve lost and while yes, the ride was worth the fall. I can’t take too many more falls and retain the shred of humanity that remains.

broken-insert

 

In the meantime, I plan to be surrounded by some of the most wonderful friends a girl could ever hope for and to pour myself into productive projects that will hopefully distract me and push me forward. I’m not writing all of this for sympathy, because in the end that doesn’t do much for me. I have a few ears that let me rant and cry as needed. That’s more than I could hope for when feeling this low. I’m not giving up on life, just giving up on the idea that romantic love is going to play any part in my future. I’m not sad about that. In fact, it feels quite liberating. I’ve had plenty of romance in my life, more than my fair share. I have nothing to complain about there. I merely don’t feel like going through this pain again, just like I don’t go placing my hand on a hot stove or my finger in a light socket…anymore. (Oh shush, you probably did it to.) So, if you see me getting all giddy or excited about someone, feel free to slap me with this post and remind me just how bad this crap hurts.

broken-tear

In the meantime, FaMESHed opened and well, lets just say there’s plenty of retail therapy to be had out there. So, if you or someone you love is going through hard times, I highly recommend grabbing your wallet and going straight to the nearest event for some good old fashioned retail therapy. Let’s face it, new jewelry like the Communique Set from Empyrean Forge can make even the coldest heart feel divine! Bring on the shopping and the wine!
