I Will Be Rising

You can take everything I have
You can break everything I am
Like I’m made of glass
Like I’m made of paper
Go on and try to tear me down
I will be rising from the ground
Like a skyscraper, like a skyscraper

I Will Be Rising

Busy Days

The last few days have been busy busy busy, as are the first few days of every month. *laughs* This is nothing new. However, yesterday I had to leave the house and that’s always an anxiety attack. Luckily, I wasn’t in the voting line too long. My mother used to work the polls and she knew the best time for us to go. She picked the absolute best time, too. There wasn’t much of a line when we got there, but as we left there was a line going quite a ways down the sidewalk outside. It was really odd seeing so much security surrounding the premises, but I suppose it was good to err on the side of caution. I’ll admit that I was a bit nervous as I live in a very very red state and I am quite blue. And that’s the extent of what I will discuss about politics. I won’t unfriend those that disagree with me, as I feel we all have our reasons for feeling the way we do. I have family that is red and while I don’t agree with them, I can still love them….from a distance. *grins*

Dear Customers

Some customers in Second Life make the most unrealistic and rude demands I have ever seen. From demanding attached panties, to suggesting that a successful designer is going to be crippled by the lack of a purchase by someone that has NEVER previously shopped their store before. Meanwhile, the CSRs, managers, and designers bite their proverbial tongues, put on a smile, and find the nicest ways possible to dismiss these incredulous demands. Once again, we are all witness to an elite group of people that genuinely think its okay to act like complete assholes from the safety of their keyboards and I will never understand it.
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the option of built in modesty panties as much as the next girl, but I have and never will message a creator and insult them, demand, or even suggest that they cater to MY desires. I have personally witnessed people have a complete meltdown simply because a dress doesn’t come with attached panties. Seriously? Do these people address Calvin Klein because he didn’t sew panties into a dress? Of course not. These items are sold separately, as they should be. I’ve had customers absolutely raging because a black silk textured top didn’t match some black sweatpants. First of all, I want to know why they’re wearing silk tops with sweatpants, cuz that makes no sense. Oh wait, you wanted to dress up your sweats with heels? Oh okay, cuz THAT makes much more sense. *rolls her eyes* While some designers do keep to a mix and match color palette, not all do. Some creators choose to apply textures that are true to real life textiles. I appreciate both styles. Once again, I feel like we’re beating a dead horse by suggesting that people try on demos first. If you don’t try a demo first, you really should not complain about the shade of a color or the fact that you can wear the shoes you wanted to wear with those pants. Honestly, the world does not revolve around the desires of one virtual shopper.
I have to believe that these types of people have absolutely no clue as to the amount of time spent on one article of clothing. For instance, one shirt…it takes time to come up with a style, then create that style digitally….THEN there’s the rigging…seriously? Are you going to bitch, because YOU choose to wear one of the less popular bodies? I’m not going to call out any particular body, but surveys done by at least five designers that I’ve seen have shown that Maitreya and Legacy are the most popular bodies being used. So, considering the amount of time it takes to rig for just ONE body, much less the seemingly endless list of bodies out there, I cannot expect or even imagine that ANY designer would create for every single body. It’s simply not cost effective or efficient. It’s just like real life, I don’t expect to every thing out there to fit my fat ass and we all know that one size does NOT fit all! I realize you want what you want, but guess what? No one gets everything they want all the time. So, suck it up, buttercup…decide what’s more important to you. You wanna wear that obscure body? GREAT! Please don’t expect EVERYONE to create for it. Better yet, join the group for your body and ask the other people in that group where they shop. You’d be surprised how many people will offer to help you.
Here’s the thing, no one is forcing anyone to be in SL, much less is anyone holding a gun to anyone’s head to shop at any one store specifically. With all the crazy shit that’s going on in this world, especially this year, why would you ever begin to allow yourself to get so enraged over not being able to wear a certain item of VIRTUAL clothing??? Either calm down or log out. The way I see it…if you’re getting that bent out of shape over virtual clothing, you probably have some deep seeded issues in your real life that need to be addressed. Thus you really should stop wasting your precious time and energy on such trivial matters in a virtual world. Instead, grab a book or even a website to help you resolve your REAL problems. I assure you, no one signed into Second Life to be your personal punching bag….and one more thing, before messaging the creator, take a moment to read the included notecard and the designer’s profile. Seven times out of ten, you’ll find your answer and save everyone some time. *winks*
….most likely I will touch on this topic again, soon…lol

I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant

It’s been seven hours and fifteen days
Since you took your love away
I go out every night and sleep all day
Since you took your love away

Since you’ve been gone I can do whatever I want
I can see whomever I choose
I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant
But nothing
I said nothing can take away these blues

‘Cause nothing compares
Nothing compares to you
~ Chris Cornell – Nothing Compares to You (cover)

Love is Love

June is PRIDE month. For a community of people that have had to hide who they really are from employers, family, friends, and especially the public…this is a huge deal. Living your life in secret is not only unhealthy, but its simply not a good way to live. Being able to step out into the light, declare your validity, and love who you love openly without shame or fear…THAT is an amazing feeling, particularly if you’ve been hiding it all for most if not all of your life.
I encourage you to join the inworld groups Second Pride (inworld link: secondlife:///app/group/e8560935-aa78-1703-8e9f-09e6f32c72a5/about ) and SL Pride at Home : Shoppers (inworld link: secondlife:///app/group/8fe743be-b9f2-abd9-5e27-82d948034302/about )

My Sasster

This is my sister from another mister and has quickly become one of my best friends. After hanging out almost daily for well over 6 months now, we made it official. I now have two sisters in Second Life. We’ve already been though some ups & downs and I’m happy to report that we worked it out like adults! The secret to a great friendship is communication and the willingness to confront uncomfortable situations head on. Ok, I’ll admit…we might need to walk away for a minute or a day, then regroup. The point is, we always come back with open arms, open hearts, and tons of laughter.

Be Kind

Wanna believe, wanna believe
That you don’t have a bad bone in your body
But the bruises on your ego make you go wild, wild, wild, yeah
Wanna believe, wanna believe
That even when you’re stone cold, you’re sorry
Tell me why you gotta be so out of your mind, yeah
I know you’re chokin’ on your fears
Already told you I’m right here
I will stay by your side every night
I don’t know why you hide from the one
And close your eyes to the one
Mess up and lie to the one that you love
When you know you can cry to the one
Always confide in the one
You can be kind to the one that you love

NOPE.

I don’t know about everybody else, but when I get a friend request from someone I don’t know and haven’t heard of on Facebook, I usually look at their profile. First, I want to know they are from Second Life and not IMVU. Secondly, I want to make sure they are from SL and not some rando from God knows where just adding all the females he can find. On that note, if I have the time, I will give their timeline a quick glance. If everything is in a language I don’t understand (which is pretty much anything, but English) then I probably won’t add them. If the first thing I see offends me or leads me to believe they will be easily offended by me, I probably won’t add them.
This morning, I logged into to several friend requests and the first thing I saw was a post about  how this person was on the verge of quitting SL. There was no point in logging in anymore. Asking what was the point, because all of her friends were gone. This is when I think in memes. You know the meme of the toddler that’s coming down the hall, turns the corner…sees something and turns right back around and is out of there? Yeah, that was me looking at this profile and hitting decline. NOPE.
