Taste Like Candy

I struggled with what to write for this photo until I resorted to music, because I just can’t write erotica. Maybe I could, but I’m not comfortable doing that for my blog, sooo….yeah, here’s a song. *giggles & blushes* Oh, and a special thank you to my dear friend, Aaron, for letting me boss him around…erhm, I mean, for posing for me, yeah, that’s it. *grins* So, while I’m showing off the first of at least four post showcasing items in the Bound Box…enjoy the music.

Doja Cat – Candy

I can name a couple ways, baby, this shit might go
You just might forget that this was what you’re gettin’ high for
And it might do the things to him, I mean the guy who
He’s the one who’s sweet enough, who’ll shoot to make that high note

And it’s such a typical thing, runnin’ over a million, oh
Runnin’ through a difficult place, you don’t need no blood on your hands, no

She’s just like candy, she’s so sweet
But you know that it ain’t real cherry, know that it ain’t real cherry
She’s just like candy, she’s so sweet
But you know that it ain’t real, know that it ain’t real
She’s just like candy, she’s so sweet
But you know that it ain’t real cherry, know that it ain’t real cherry
She’s just like candy, she’s so sweet
But you know that it ain’t real, know that it ain’t real

I can be your sugar when you’re fiendin’ for that sweet spot
Put me in your mouth, baby, and eat it ’till your teeth rot
I can be your cherry, apple, pecan, or your key lime
Baby I got everything and so much more than she’s got

And it’s such a typical thing, runnin’ over a million, oh
Runnin’ through a difficult place, you don’t need no blood on your hands, no

She’s just like candy, she’s so sweet
But you know that it ain’t real cherry, know that it ain’t real cherry
She’s just like candy, she’s so sweet
But you know that it ain’t real, know that it ain’t real
She’s just like candy, she’s so sweet
But you know that it ain’t real cherry, know that it ain’t real cherry
She’s just like candy, she’s so sweet
But you know that it ain’t real, know that it ain’t real

Sugar coated, lies unfolded, you still lick the wrapper
It’s addictive, you know this, but you still lick the wrapper
Sugar coated, lies unfolded, you still lick the wrapper
It’s addictive, you know this, but you still lick the wrapper

She’s just like candy, she’s so sweet
But you know that it ain’t real cherry, know that it ain’t real cherry
She’s just like candy, she’s so sweet
But you know that it ain’t real, know that it ain’t real
She’s just like candy, she’s so sweet
But you know that it ain’t real cherry, know that it ain’t real cherry
She’s just like candy, she’s so sweet
But you know that it ain’t real, know that it ain’t real

We Can Be Friends

I hear it all the time, “Men and women can’t truly be friends.” I know better. Okay, perhaps it’s true that one or both of them think about or have thought about sleeping with the other. Hell, maybe they even did once or twice, but if a friendship is what developed between them and there’s no real romantic connection, there’s absolutely no reason they can’t be friends. Unless one of you is a stalker or a rapist, of course. I have plenty of guy friends in SL, most of whom I have NOT slept with and never will. There’s never been an issue with sexual tension or anything of the sort. So, don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t be just friends with the opposite sex or whatever your sexual preference might be. It’s simply a matter of establishing boundaries and mutual respect.

Stand By Me

So, recently, my friend Alvie posted a broad question to Facebook asking if other people got transported to a memory instantaneously by a certain song. Of course, I think that must be true for almost everyone, right? Well, some songs bring good memories, some sad, and some traumatic. For me, “Stand By Me” has always been a trigger to a traumatic memory. Its hard to be so turned off by such a popular song, however, I have finally found the cover of it that not only do I love the cover, but I can actually enjoy the song for the first time in 30yrs. I’ve tossed the link at the bottom of the page. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do now. ♥

Be The Reason

None of us are perfect and most of us live with our share of regrets. I usually say that I have no regrets, because I am where I am because of everything that’s happened to me to get me here. However, that’s not really true. Regardless of where the path had led, if there were things I could go back and change, I would. I would undo the pain I’ve caused others. I would have treated myself better over the years and demanded better from others.
It took me a long time to get to a place where I felt I had a reason to live. You see for the longest time, I wanted to die almost every day. I have my reasons for wanting the sweet comfort of the final act, but I also have my reasons for staying alive. There are days that I struggle with both sides of that coin, but someone always finds a way to remind me why its so good that I am still here.
The first thing I had to do was forgive myself. I think that is one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. It’s really easy for me to forgive others. I’m really good at letting go (though I wasn’t always). The thing is we can’t really move through our lives without hurting people from time to time. We don’t always mean to hurt others and we rarely set out to hurt ourselves, but when we carry around toxic thoughts and feelings, that’s exactly what we do. We hurt ourselves.
There’s a song that most of you all know, “The Reason” by Hoobastank. This song came out when I was making some major life changes and it became somewhat of an anthem for me. Its a song that I sing to myself and yes, sometimes I actually sing it to myself in the mirror, because there’s no greater reason to change than to change for yourself. Don’t wait for someone else to fix you….be the reason you change and those changes will be yours that no one can take from you. Forgive yourself and be the reason to treat yourself better than anyone else ever could. You’ll be surprised how many people follow suit and started treating you better, too.

Thank you, Aaron. ♥

Go F*ck Thyself

Today we’re going to play a little game. You guys know that comedian Jeff Foxworthy and his tag line…If you blah blah blah….you might be a redneck. Or his buddy, Bill Engvall, the way he talks about stupid people should come with a sign and suggests people we should pass them out to? Well, today, we’re going to do a Sady version! That’s right! Ready? Here we go….

Do you tell people you don’t want a relationship, but get mad if they fuck someone other than you? Go Fuck Thyself.
If you think that you’re some sort of superstar because you are popular on SL Flickr feeds? Go Fuck Thyself.
If you go out of your way to hurt someone by saying things about their RL, whether true or not….Go Fuck Thyself.
If you think that someone belongs to you, because you called dibs years ago, but never actually dated….Go Fuck Thyself.
If you ever submit ANYTHING to SL Secrets….Go Fuck Thyself.
If you announce you are leaving SL/FB ever other week…Go Fuck Thyself.
Do you pick to go into a relationship, knowing you aren’t going to be about much? Go Fuck Thyself.
If you’re constantly criticizing designers in SL when you can’t even rez a box without an instruction manual. Go Fuck Thyself.
If you send random pics of your genitalia to strangers. Go Fuck Thyself.
If you can’t accept your ex doesn’t want you back and stalk them and their partner. Go Fuck Thyself…no really, Bryn? Please go fuck thyself.
If you use multiple alts to cheat on the person you claim to love…Go Fuck Thyself
If you use the death of a friend to create a product that you sell and profit from in SL…Go Fuck Thyself
If you lie about being sick (like cancer) to get attention. Go Fuck Thyself.
If you lie about the death of a loved one, just to get someone to talk to you. Go Fuck Thyself.
If you follow an ex all over the grid while pretending to be happy with your current partner. Go Fuck Thyself.

Wow, this list really could be endless…I had my friends toss a few of those out for me….feel free to add your own in the comments. Who knows, I can very well see me doing something like this again in the future.

Prediction

I’m not sure who put it in my head, but somewhere along this journey of life someone shared a New Year’s superstition. Supposedly whatever you are doing/feeling when the clock strikes Midnight, is what you’ll do or feel the most throughout the next year. Like most superstitions, I don’t put a lot of weight in them. However, they can be fun. Last year, I think I was either in bed or anxiously waiting for the clock so I could go to bed. So, I was tired at midnight and wouldn’t you believe I’ve been very tired for the most of 2017. I plan on being plenty drunk tonight on Ciroc Berry with Cranberry RedBull. I call it a DoorJammer, because I tend to get very familiar with the door jams. *giggles* So, I can hardly wait to see what midnight will predict for me. I’d love to hear what it predicts for you, so please come back and tell me all about it. Until then, Happy New Year….see you in 2018♥

Learn To Let Go

Kesha – Learn To Let Go

Been a prisoner of the past
Had a bitterness when I looked back
Was telling everyone it’s not that bad
‘Til all my shit hit the fan
I know I’m always like
Telling everybody, “You don’t gotta be a victim
Life ain’t always fair, but hell is living in resentment
Choose redemption, your happy ending’s up to you”
I think it’s time to practice what I preach
Exorcise the demons inside me
Whoa, gotta learn to let it go
The past can’t haunt me if I don’t let it
Live and learn and never forget it
Whoa, gotta learn to let it go
Had a boogeyman under my bed
Putting crazy thoughts inside my head
Always whispering, “It’s all your fault”
He was telling me, “No, you’re not that strong”
I know I’m always like
Telling everybody, “You don’t gotta be a victim
Life ain’t always fair, but hell is living in resentment
Choose redemption, your happy ending’s up to you”
So I think it’s time to practice what I preach
Exorcise the demons inside me
Whoa, gotta learn to let it go
The past can’t haunt me if I don’t let it
Live and learn and never forget it
Whoa, gotta learn to let it go
Hey-eh-eh-eh, yeah
Hey-eh-eh-eh, yeah
Learn to let go, learn to let go
Hey-eh-eh-eh, yeah
Hey-eh-eh-eh, yeah
Learn to let go, learn to let go
I’m done reliving my bad decisions
I see now maybe there’s a reason
Why, I, I, I, I, I, I been through hell and back
Yeah, honestly, it’s what made me who I am
Holding on to wasted time
Gotta learn to let go in life
So I think it’s time to practice what I preach
Exorcise the demons inside me
Whoa, gotta learn to let it go
The past can’t haunt me if I don’t let it
Live and learn and never forget it
Whoa, gotta learn to let it go
Hey-eh-eh-eh, yeah
Hey-eh-eh-eh, yeah
Learn to let go, learn to let go
Hey-eh-eh-eh, yeah
Hey-eh-eh-eh, yeah
Learn to let go, learn to let go

All That Glitters Is Not Gold

We’ve all heard the age old adage that all that glitters is not gold, but sometimes it IS! Just like the night I was scrolling through Facebook and found a reminder to check out N21. Oh man, I had almost forgotten! Thank you Mandala for not only reminding but tempting me with this adorable Origami necklace and earrings set! So, I’m making my way around N21 and not only do I find the Origami set, but the glittering beauty that is this super fun LuLu Dress from Tres Blah! Well, it was like a sign and it did glitter and there was a gold…naturally the rebel in me was determined to have my gold and glitter, too! I knew I had some gold shoes and eagerly put them on only to find that they were actually TOO gold, so I dug around and wouldn’t you know it, I discovered some a bonus color hud in the pack with these shoes and BOOM…a perfect match was born!

So, here it is…glittering, gold, and fabulous. No sooner do I have my outfit put together, complete with dancing particle glitter, and decide to do this blog than I get word that Fancy Decor has done metallic pumpkins for Fifty Linden Friday and is leaving them out through Sunday! I quickly grab the orange and gold for my pictures and here we are…I’m feeling a bit like Queen Midas if I say so myself.

For the last few days, I’ve not slept well at all. Story of my life, but the last few days have been especially rough. I can hardly even think straight. Writer’s block is real and I walked away from my computer last night because I thought a good night’s sleep would help. Sadly, a good night’s sleep was not had. The opposite actually and to make matters worse, I’m not well. I won’t get into my symptoms. I’ll be fine, but this entry is going to be short and not so meaningful. I will tell you that I’m in love with this dress. The versatility insures endless possibilities. This is one of those dresses that you really want in every color, because a fur store with one color dresses it up…a leather jacket and some boots with another color and you’ve got an entirely different look. How awesome is that?

Perfectly Flawed

I’ll be completely honest. I’m the kind of girl that learns most of her life lessons the hardest way possible. I don’t know how many real life musicians I had to date, before I figured out that they were not for me. I tried every drug that came my way, fortunately without the use of needles. I’ve tried a variety of clothing styles. Some of them were definitely not meant for my body type. I’ve tried an endless array of hairstyles, again not all of them fit. I’ve had all types of jobs from restaurants & hotels to medical to office administration. I’ve been friends with people from all walks of life. Thinking I was open minded enough not to judge some of their bizarre lifestyle choices. And before you get your panties twisted, I mean actual lifestyle choices like having pink hair in real life knowing it will limit your job/career options(not that bizarre) or decorating your yard with zombie gnomes (#lifegoal). Even now, I don’t want to list the choices I personally find bizarre, because to each their own. I simply cannot understand or relate to somethings and quite frankly think others are just plain fucked up and wrong (zoophilia.)
perfectly flawed
With that said, one thing I’ve never been good at is saving money. Ever. I can hold someone else’s money and never touch it, but my own? Nope. I’ll spend it everytime and most of the time it isn’t even spent very wisely. Yes, I do worry a little bit about what life will be when I’m older, but I do have some things in order. I have a home that’s paid in full. For now a working car that I love and is also paid in full. If I end up alone, I’ll have a spare bedroom I can rent out. So, I’ve thought about those things, see?
However, who promised that I’d grow old enough for that plan? Who promised me that Linden Labs would survive more than a year after I joined in 2006? Who guaranteed me a life worth living when I’m 60? NO ONE. So, yes, I’ve chosen to live life a bit on the edge. Daring myself to enjoy one moment after the next, however I see fit.
perfectly flawed 2
I do my best not to hurt people along the way, but none of us are perfect and on occasion we will all hurt someone we love. Whether its a seemingly harmless joke wrapped in barbed wire or simply a careless action or God forbid desires that overrule all common sense. What matters is that we learn to forgive, so that we don’t carry those resentments around weighing down our souls. What matters is recognizing what we’ve done and not simply apologizing, but amending our behaviors. What matters is letting go of those that consistently harm us, even if they seem beneficial in other areas of our lives. What matters is genuinely learning to love ourselves, flaws and all.

perfectly flawed 3

What matters is being true to ourselves, because if we can’t be loving, true, and kind to ourselves? We’ll never be able to genuinely offer those attributes to another individual.

Until you can live your life and love it, you have nothing but lies to offer the rest of us.

My life sure isn’t perfect, nor am I, but I know one thing for sure:
I AM PERFECTLY FLAWED!
