Keeping My Head Up

This was my final picture on my homestead sim. I was so looking forward to opening up a literal field of creativity. Having my friends come in an create scenes like this one, so that we could all enjoy one another’s work. Alas, I could not in good consciousness continue to pay for a sim in a virtual world, when I so desperately need money in real life. People think I work all the time in SL, but that’s not true. I have plenty of time for more jobs and it is the pay I make from those jobs that help to keep me afloat in real life. Sometimes life is hard and it forces us to make decisions we don’t want to make. I may not be rich financially, but I am rich with blessings. I have the greatest friends I could ever hope to have and that is something money cannot buy. Luckily, I make enough in sl, to pay for my internet and a few other essentials. My needs are met in SL and as far as RL goes…well, as long as I’m online, I must be ok, because while it might feel like a necessity…being online is technically a luxury. Plenty of happy people live without it. So, no matter what, I’ll be keeping my head up and looking forward.

One Night

He showed up at the club while she was working. He was with a loud mouth girl, who clearly couldn’t hold her liquor. She had done her best to ignore them both, but as he would come to the bar to order drinks, he would grab her for a few words. She never could fight the attraction, but he frightened her. He was a good guy and she didn’t know how to deal with good guys. Bad boys were her thing, because they were safe. She always knew how those relationships would go, but one look from him and she was frozen in place. When he suggested they talk in the back room, she couldn’t resist. Part of her longed to have him back, but he had yet to show her that he had changed as much as he said he did. But one night…just one more night, wouldn’t hurt, right?

Finally Unplugged

The familiar chime of an incoming text message made her instantly look at her phone, as if trained like Pavlov’s dog. She sighed as she saw that it was him again. She chastised herself mentally, “I knew I should have left this damn phone in the room.”
She had taken a brief vacation to get away from the hustle and bustle of her daily life. She was pretending to be someone else, as she wanted a complete escape, yet here she was chained to reality by this electronic leash called a smart phone.
She lit a cigarette as she read his latest tirade. She was so sick of his shit. She had come on this trip to get away from him, but here he was nagging at her from a thousand miles away. She decided enough was enough. Texting her sister with the information for where she was staying in case of absolute emergency, she turned her phone off, finished her cigarette and went back into the quaint little beach side pub to finish her wine. She was finally unplugged…at least for a few more days.

Shady AF

There are people in this world that will do anything to make others look bad. Sadly, these miserable people will smile in your face then turn to their next friend and stab you in the back. Sometimes they make false accusations. Other times, they exaggerate the truth. Here’s the thing, when the only dirt someone can find on you is something that you’ve never denied or even attempted to keep a secret…well, its kinda sad, not to mention pathetic. I personally find haters to be flattering. However, not everyone is as amused by them as I am. Here’s the thing and I’ve said it before, I never asked to take up so much space in their empty little heads. The only reason they are getting any attention from me now is because I’d like to thank them for the recognition. You see, since the “secret” came out, I’ve had people reach out to me that I haven’t heard from in a while. Others have stepped forward with stories of their own haters and we’ve formed a bond of solidarity. We all agree that our haters aren’t worth confronting and by next week, the “secret” and all the energy they put into it will have been forgotten. So, if you’re going to be shady as fuck, learn some new tricks, because your old ones are boring….and no one is entertained by boring.

Damn Earworms!

So, as much as I’ve been trying not to do this…I woke up with this song stuck in my head and no matter how hard I tried, I can’t get it out. So, its going in this post. Damn earworms. At least its a good song. ♥

Bread ~ Baby I’m-a want You

Baby I’m-a want you
Baby I’m-a need you
You’re the only one I care enough to hurt about
Maybe I’m-a crazy
But I just can’t live without
your lovin’ and affection
Givin’ me direction
Like a guiding light to help me through a darkest hour
Lately I’m a-prayin’
That you’ll always be a-stayin’ beside me
Used to be my life was just emotions passing by
Feeling all the while and never really knowing why
Lately I’m a-prayin’
That you’ll always be a-stayin’ beside me.
Used to be my life was just emotions passing by
Then you came along and made me laugh and made me cry
You taught me why
Baby I’m-a want you
Baby I’m-a need you
Oh, it took so long to find you, baby
Baby I’m-a want you
Baby I’m-a need you

Baby, I'm a want you

Achill Island

So, one of my best friends is Grace Sixpence and she has recently acquired a homestead. She had the sim professionally landscaped to represent an actual island in Ireland and it is gorgeous. I could not resist going straight over and taking a photo for my blog. I will definitely return for more photos and I encourage you to do the same. She has opened it to the public and you can join her group at the landing point. You can also post your photos to her flickr group. So, after your next shopping trip, head on over to Achill Island for a great photo with a fantastic background, no matter where you pose.

Good Morning

So, when I was setting up for this photograph, I was thinking about how most of us say things like, “good morning/night,” “sweet dreams,” and “have a good day.” All of these pleasantries began with good wishes from one to another. I dove into Google to see if I could find an actual beginning to this custom and I did not. However, what I did find was an amusing blog post about good morning and a thread started by what is clearly an very miserable person. So, rather than regurgitate what I read, I’ll simply share the links with you here and wish YOU a good day. ♥

  1. Cute blog post.
  2. Miserable meanie!

Way Down We Go

“Father tell me, we get what we deserve
Oh we get what we deserve
And way down we go
Way down we go
Say way down we go
Way down we go
You let your feet run wild
Time has come as we all oh, go down
Yeah but for the fall oh, my
Do you dare to look him right in the eyes?”
~Kaleo – Way Down We Go

How many of us truly belong in karma or some sort of divine justice? We’ve all heard people say, “there’s a special place in hell for people like that.” Some of us have even thought it or said it ourselves. So, while we sit in judgement of others, regardless of their offense, how many of us want the karma or divine justice we deserve? How many of us have taken a friend or lover down with us?
I think that its far too easy and convenient to point the fingers at others. I think that most of us revel in the crimes of the obscene, for it relieves us of some of the guilt we carry within our hearts. However, what if there’s a special place in hell for people like us? Does karma just skip the little stuff? Just food for thought.

Blueberry pt2

I recently did a post about mixing Blueberry sets and I promised that you’d be seeing this combination soon. I love this top so much. I know it’s supposed to be a bikini top, but I wear it with so many things. With that said, I’d like to mention that these leggings come with a hud to write your own message. I believe there are 14 charaters, 2 fonts, more than a dozen symbols…AND you can customize the colors of the letters. These Reign sneakers tie the whole thing together as they are fully customizable, as well. (I think I just made up a word, but let’s roll with it.)

Promise Me This

 

Ben Howard – Promise

And meet me there, bundles of flowers
We wait through the hours of cold
Winter shall howl at the walls
Tearing down doors of time
Shelter as we go
And promise me this
You’ll wait for me only
Scared of the lonely arms
Surface, far below these burn
And maybe, just maybe I’ll come home
Who am I, darling to you?
Who am I?
Going to tell you stories of mine
Who am I?
Who am I, darling for you?
Who am I?
Could be a burden in time, lonely
Who am I, to you?
Who am I, darling for you?
Who am I?
Going to be a burden
Who am I, darling to you?
Who am I?
I come alone here
I come alone here
promise
