More Happiness

“You might not make it to the top, but if you are doing what you love, there is much more happiness there than being rich or famous.” ~ Tony Hawk

Naturally, for this picture, I wanted a Tony Hawk quote, because he’s probably the most well known skate boarder in the U.S. Even my 72yr old mother knows of him. Yet, this quote really hits home with me, because my best friend, Kess Crystal, recently did a poll for bloggers, then released the results in her blog, Big Blogger Questions.  I know that every blogger on the grid did not participate in the poll, but I know a fair amount did. The results were a bit surprising, but I think the biggest surprise for me was the amount of bloggers that see blogging as competitive. It was 26%!! I have never seen blogging as competitive. I’m super happy to see talented photographer fashionistas take to blogging.
I started blogging as a distraction…as a form of therapy…a creative outlet. I never looked at other bloggers and thought, “I’m going to be better them.” I used to wonder how one blogger got chosen for a brand vs a blogger that I thought did better photographs, but as I stepped into blogger management, I realized that the designers have a certain vision for how they want their brand to be represented and each has their own criteria. Some will not take on bloggers that feature nudity or curse words. Some brands won’t consider a micro blogger (flickr only). I’ve never been angry with a friend for getting selected for a brand I wanted to blog for and I didn’t. I do my absolute best to surround myself with positive and supportive people. I don’t blog for the hopes of being popular or famous in a virtual world. I do it, because I’m addicted to it. What started off as a for of creative expression and therapy, has evolved to a creative adventure and full on addiction. I’m even prone to overdosing…taking on more than I can handle and edging dangerously close to blogger burnout, but alas, I’ve been able to reign myself in and make it all work.

Kissing Frogs

I’ve about to decided that I’m going to refer to all my exes as frogs. I’ve kissed them all and not a one has turned into a prince, but they’ve certainly wasted no time in hopping away. They made a whole lot of noise and had no problem sharing my pad, but when it came down to it they all ended up back in the pond. Personally, I think they can stay there. Perhaps someone else will find a use for them….oh say, frog legs sauteed in a garlic butter sauce. *smirks* Either way, I’m done kissing frogs and going forward, frogs will just have to remain in the pond where I found them. I can enjoy them from a distance while partaking in some Kronic. *grins*

Fake Friends

“Don’t worry about what people say behind your back, they are the people who are finding faults in your life instead fixing the faults in their own life.” ~Author Unknown

This quote or something along those lines has been told to me so many times over the years. It’s important to my sanity that I remember this, especially when “friends” begin acting shady around you. I think most of us are intuitive enough to realize when one of so called friends suddenly seems fake as hell. I’ll admit it hurts to think that someone you care about suddenly thinks very little of you. Even worse knowing that the real reason they have suddenly begun to think less of you, is actually a reflection of their feelings towards themselves. Sadly, instead of looking in the mirror, they’d rather project their failures and misgivings upon someone else. At this point, the question is, do you attempt to prove that person wrong or do you just go the other way. I know that for me personally, I cannot tip toe about broken glass that I can’t even see. They’ll just have to clean that up themselves, because I have far too much on my plate to worry about what others think of me. If only that was my biggest problem, I’d be far more blessed than I deserve.

Kick Starting the Week

I’m kicking off the week with some tunes and because I do enjoy posting lyrics with song links, I thought let’s do, “Okay, Musical Mondays.” Just maybe I’ll introduce a few people to something new. For today, I’ve got this little number for you. I love it. It makes me want to get up and kick start the week! I hope you’ve had a pleasant weekend so far. I managed to with a little help from my friends. So, here we go….

Republica – Ready to Go

Ready to go
Ready to go
You’re weird in tears, too near and too far away

Yeah, I’m standing on the rooftops
Shouting out baby I’m ready to go

Your Greedy Eyes Upon Me

I’m just going to let this song do the talking for me today. My favorite line is captioned under the photo and the video awaits you beneath the credits. In the meantime, I get off on you…getting off on me…*grins*….yeah, I’m in a mood.

Wildflower
So much left unspoken
Between the two of us
It’s so much more exciting
To look when you can touch
You could say I am different
And maybe I’m a freak
But I know how to twist ya
To bring you to your knees

Cupid Is a Rapist

So, what’s the deal with Cupid? We chose the God of Date Rape as our symbol for Valentine’s Day? Who makes these decisions? I can bet it wasn’t Gloria Alfred! Okay, calm your tits, I’m just being the asshole on Valentine’s Day because this time last year I was happy it was annoying…*laughs.* So, I’m here to spoil the mood this year or at least twist it around a  bit. Wait, there’s logic to this….just listen. So, cupid, this lil fuckers just goes about shooting people with an arrow that takes away their free will…forcing them to feel desire. Ok, Cupid Cosby, that’s not creepy at all! I tell ya what, Cupid….I’m ready for you….shoot me and I’m ready to shoot back. I’m not going to take your free will, though. You can will it all you want, it’s not going to work again. *grins*

101, My Ass!

Do you ever look at some kids’ stories and think, “WTF?” Well, I do. 101 Dalmatians is definitely one of those stories. For one thing, who wants a fur coat made from dog fur? Have you ever smelled a wet dog? My god, they stink! Then there’s the whole theme of all these dogs communicating to rescue 97 puppies? Gimme a damn break. My dog is pretty smart, but she doesn’t know the difference between her ass hole and a dog treat. She’s lick either one! Then they take all these puppies home? Uhm, can we say puppy mill? I bet that house smelled fantastic…lol. I honestly don’t know how anyone can deal with more than two dogs at a time, especially 101 with most of them being puppies. They’d have that entire house chewed up within and hour. So many holes in this story that I could spend all day picking it apart. Do you have any stories like that? I’d love to hear about it.

Sorry, Not Sorry

“Do not fall in love with people like me.
I will take you to museums, and parks, and monuments, and kiss you in every beautiful place, so that you can never go back to them without tasting me like blood in your mouth.
I will destroy you in the most beautiful way possible. And when I leave you will finally understand, why storms are named after people.”
― Caitlyn SiehlLiterary Sexts: A Collection of Short & Sexy Love Poems

I saw this quote in someone’s profile a couple of years ago and I remember thinking, “Wow, great quote, but what makes you think you’re so damned special?” I did quickly discover the stormy side of that person, but never saw the rest of it. However, the quote has stayed with me all these years. I recently ordered the above mentioned book from Amazon and have decided that I’d love to incorporate more poetry into my blogs. I’m just not quite sure if I can present entire poems without infringing on some copyright laws. I’ll have to look into it first. Either way I’ve got plenty to choose from. I’m not going to go into too much about the quote above, because I honestly believe it stands quite well on it’s own. In fact, I think most poetry does. So, this might very well become as common an occurrence in my blogs as songs and lyrics. While some may think that’s an easy way out, I assure you that its not. Sometimes the song inspires the photo, sometimes I have to dig through songs for hours or even days to find the right one for a picture. Meh, judge my blog all you want. It’s still my blog and I’ll do it my way. I certainly hope you like it, but if you don’t….well, sorry, not sorry?

The Pearl Necklace

Once upon a time, a pearl necklace was truly something special. Stop smirking, you pervs, we’ll get to THAT in a minute…sheesh. You guys are so immature. *looks all angelic* Now, where was I….oh yes, back in the day, it was tradition to give a girl a string of pearls on her 16th birthday. As the years went by and fashions changed, girls didn’t value the pearls the way they used to. I love pearls, I think they are one of the most miraculous beautiful things one can possess. Imagine something so beautiful occurring from just one grain of sand or a speck of food. It’s quite fascinating to me.
These days, of course, unless you’ve been living under a proverbial rock of some sort you know that a pearl necklace has a very different meaning. While your pervs might be giggling, I’m pretty sure you know whether or not you like to receive them….or give them, provided you’re a man. Still pretty fascinating, because even THAT pearl necklace has some benefits to your skin, but we’re not going to talk about that. You can google it for yourselves.

Feelings

I appreciate when my friends are compassionate and tell me that I should not feel guilty about something I’ve done or been part of by suggesting it was not my fault. Sadly, whether I am at fault or not, if I played a part in something that makes me FEEL guilty. I’m going to feel guilty. Nothing is going to change that until I forgive myself. People in SL love to warn other people about each other. I get it. If you are truly concerned about me, you want to protect me. However, how can you truly know how one person will be with me? Your experience is yours, not mine. So many times, I’ve been warned about someone I dated. The things I was warned about never happened to me. So, let me make my mistakes and stop trying to infect me with your fears. Furthermore, your enemies are not my enemies just because they are yours. If I choose to dislike someone, it is of my own accord, not because you told me to. This does not mean I am disloyal to you. It means I have a mind of my own. You can not wear a tag, proclaim to be something and expect me to respect your so called title or self appointed position in life, especially in SL. If you get my respect, you earned it. If you don’t deserve it, you sure as hell won’t get it.
I don’t need you permission to feel anything. I don’t need your permission to laugh, to cry, or even be hysterical. You do not live in my mind, you cannot possibly understand it the way you think you do. I joke around a lot about doing what I want, but in all seriousness? I DO WHAT I FUCKING WANT! You do not get to shame me for the way I speak, write, laugh, dance, flirt, or anything else. Your approval is not required, nor is it necessary. If you like me, fine. If you don’t, you are free to walk away. No one is going to beg you to stay. I’ve only chased one person in my life. I caught him, then I could hardly get rid of him. Now he’s dead. The lessons learned were mine, not yours. If you think I’m going to chase you for any reason, you’re in for a very long wait.
I’m not suggesting I will never ask for opinions or advice. I’m merely saying that I am in charge of my feelings, no one else. So, if I don’t feel guilt when you think I should….or I do feel guilty when you think I shouldn’t….fuck off and don’t tell me how to feel, motherfucker!
