A Second Time

“If you spend your time hoping someone will suffer the consequences for what they did to your heart, then you’re allowing them to hurt you a second time in your mind.”

The first snow

The first snow
The first winter of my life
I was told it was the height of me
The first dance
Well, the first one that counted
Felt like my blood was built from crackling lights

Feelin’ like a ghost

Today I’m kinda feelin’ like a ghost
Call my friends but ain’t nobody home
Tell myself I’m fine but I don’t really know
I’m just scared that I’ll end up, I’ll end up, I’ll end up alone
I never let it show
But I feel like a missed call on a phone
Tryna live my life, pay-as-you-go
But I’m so scared that I’ll end up, I’ll end up, I’ll end up alone

You know I’m like a ghost, sometimes I have to fade
And it haunts me that I have to be this way
You say it’s gone cold, I say I’ll do better
But I always seem to disappear again
~ Au/Ra, Alan Walker – Ghost

Peepers

Tis the season to dress up in all sorts of festive outfits and the recent annual BVN Holiday Party was no exception. They had a themed formal of white and gold. Yes, I had to wear another formal. Lucky for me, I have a weakness for the gowns at Just Because, so I had a few to choose from…even if they make me itch. *laughs* Okay, not really…well, not in Second Life, but I’m not big on formals. That’s just a bit froofroo for my tastes. However, I was a good sport and went to the party in a beautiful golden gown. In fact, my friend and fellow blogger, Caitlin Mirabella, took a picture of us in our gowns and she did a fantastic job. Though none of that is what is being showcased here.
You see, there were lots of fabulous blogger prizes being given away at random and I was the lucky winner of a three month blogger gig with Avi Glam. To be honest, I wasn’t all that familiar with the brand before hand. That has certainly changed and just in time for my adventure with close ups! You see, Avi Glam is best known for their amazing eyes. I’m a sucker for some pretty eyes, so I leaped at the chance to scoop up some new peepers! Be on the look out, because I will be showing off plenty of beautiful eyes in all my close ups.

Time to Liberate

“Four walls like a prison
Feels like another victim
Something’s wrong
Something’s missing
You scream when it hurts but there’s nobody listenin’
Gettin’ sick of going psycho
Burnin’ quick, a downward spiral
Not a slave or an animal
Someone break me out this cage
It’s time to liberate
From everyone who loves to hate
From everything that’s makin’ you live the lie
Don’t you think it’s time to twist your fate
Liberate”

Days Long Gone

It is 4:30am and I’m sitting here quietly typing in a room lit only be two computer screens and the occasional bout of lightening. The sound of the rain pitter-pattering faster, then slower against my windows, accompanied by the wind creeping through cracks in the glass, all remind me of some random scene in some scary movie. My mind begins to travel to different times in my life as I check the weather website to make sure this is just a thunderstorm and nothing more serious. That’s what I do now. I’m all grown up and now I worry about things like whether or not a thunderstorm is going to turn into some demonic creation of Gaia sent to remind us whose home we live upon. Do I need to trick my animals into the bathroom along with my purse and medications? Dancing in the deluge no longer an option. Oh but once upon a time….and my mind begins to roam through the remnants of days long gone.

I’m Offended

April Fool’s Day has come and gone. It’s the one day of the year that we’re expected to relax and expect bad to epic pranks. I’ve seen all sorts of prank wars on YouTube between couples that are far more tolerant than I would ever be. I’ve seen women smashing Xboxes….those things are freaking expensive! Let someone bash in my PC as a joke! I don’t care if they had a backup or a brand new better PC….that’s cash money, yo! For years, I’ve pranked my mother by claiming to see a spider somewhere near her. Hell, I even did that shit over the phone and she still feel for it. Yeah, she cusses me out every year, but that’s how I know I got her.

There are certain pranks that are just classics, especially now with most people locked into social media. People will announce they’re getting married, divorced, a new job, pregnant, car crash, etc. Now, rarely does anyone fake a death or some deadly disease, but when they do its usually someone famous and they can get away with it. Now, most of these jokes are so common that I hardly even find them amusing, unless presented in a very unique way. What I have not witnessed until this year (doesn’t mean it didn’t happen) was someone getting so bent out of shape over a public prank on social media that they took it upon themselves to rant about said joke and how it offended them. Naturally, there were people ready and willing to jump on the offended bandwagon. To be fair, there were also a handful of people defending the offensive joke.

Here’s the the filtered tea. The joke was a pregnancy announcement. Several people fell for it and that made it funny to me. The person offended apparently couldn’t have kids or had recently lost a child during pregnancy. I honestly can’t remember the details, because the comments on both threads had my head spinning. Eventually, the joker, being a truly wonderful person, resended her joke and apologized to all of FB. Thus, the offended, also a wonderful person, took down her rant.

Ok, so here’s why it bothered me. I honestly don’t get why this was so offensive. I can’t have kids. I had two miscarriages, but swore I’d never try again. I couldn’t deal with the idea of getting my hopes up and losing another one. I absolutely hate the very idea of baby showers and I refuse to go them, because they upset me so badly. Just receiving an invitation can make me cry sometimes. However, I would NEVER lash out, publicly OR privately, over being invited. I wouldn’t dream of making it about me. I simply accept it as part of life and decline the invite with one excuse or another. I don’t even tell them that real reason I can’t go is that I’m not mentally stable enough to sit through someone else’s joyous occasion because it triggers so much personal pain. Hell, I’ve had to endure work baby showers that sent me to the bathroom to calm down. So, to rain all over social media because an innocent joke triggered you? Well, here’s the thing…once that shit is out there, people have seen it. I guarantee someone has a screen shot of it and friends were lost over this stupid joke. Now the whole world knows how sensitive you are and how easily you’re triggered….and quite frankly, it made a mountain out of mole hill. We as humans have got to stop being so easily offended. We can’t take everything so personally. I personally find it exhausting and I understand that sometimes stuff bothers us deeply, but not everything is meant for social media. It simply creates a rift between people that wasn’t necessary. So, please, if you’re truly offended by someone’s behavior….perhaps you should approach the person offending you, but take sometime to think it over. Is this something that offends you personally? Was the offensive thing aimed at you specifically? I mean, just think about it. Most of us are adults, let’s start acting like it. Because quite frankly, I’m offended by every Tom, Dick, and Sally walking around with chips on their shoulders just waiting to be offended so they can rant all over social media about it. So, there…your overt sensitivity offends me. How you like them apples? (and ffs, don’t take this as a direct assault…it fits a gazillion scenarios….I think both women are beautiful and amazing, it was just one of those things, ya know?)

Library

“A library is never — for lovers of the written word — simply a place for conserving or storing books but rather a sort of living creature with a personality and even moods which we should understand and learn to live with.” – Francisco Márquez Villanueva

As long as I can remember, I’ve loved books. Yes, I love to read, but its more than that. I love possessing books. I love the smell of them and the feel of them in my hands, the pages between my fingers. I love the energy and smells of bookstores and libraries alike and each has their own individual scent. Books are like magical portals to another world and when a story really pulls you in…that collection of paper and words truly transports me so far away that it is one of the greatest escapes in the world.
I love this quote, because its just so damn true. Whether a small collection of books or an entire room or building, the titles and authors on display truly come together to create a personality of its own, not to mention a reflection of the keeper of said books.
