Say So

Day to night to morning, keep with me in the moment
I’d let you had I known it, why don’t you say so?
Didn’t even notice, no punches left to roll with
You got to keep me focused, you want it, say so
Day to night to morning, keep with me in the moment
I’d let you had I known it, why don’t you say so?
Didn’t even notice, no punches left to roll with
You got to keep me focused, you want it, say so

Just take one

Something I see a lot and still don’t understand is when people that announce they are taking a break from social media. Like they’re doing us a service, which to be fair, they might be..lol. Are we supposed to beg them to stay? “I’ll be lost without your memes!” I mean, take a break…I think we all need to do that from time to time, but is it truly necessary to make a thing of it? I don’t know. I guess it comes from growing up without internet and cell phones, but if I want to take a break, I’m just going to take one.

Forever in my Veins

Lately I’ve been afraid of myself
The closer that I get to rain
The more I feel at home, the further I’m away
And all that I feel is pain

Count me, count me, call my name
Don’t leave me out in shame
Crimson tears falling and my shirt is blood-stained
And the devil’s forever in my veins
And the devil’s forever in my veins

The morning’s a cross I bear when I wake
Am I asleep if I’ve broken my faith?
Down on my knees, can you hear me when I pray?
Or am I a little too late?

Count me, count me, call my name
Don’t leave me out in shame
Crimson tears falling and my shirt is blood-stained
And the devil’s forever in my veins
And the devil’s forever in my veins

Her Surprise

Everyone said the house was haunted, but she didn’t believe in ghosts, so when they dared her to go in first she readily accepted the challenge. As she walked down the hall, she heard nothing but a stillness all around her. She turned to see where her friends were, “Would you guys c’mon and stop staring at my ass!” To her surprise she saw nothing, but shadows, “Oh cute, get your asses in here…no point in me leading a pack that isn’t following!”
She waited a few minutes, but heard and saw nothing. She had to admit to herself the place was a little creepy. She still didn’t believe in ghosts, but she sure as hell wasn’t going to keep going without them. She started heading back the way she came, but nothing looked familiar….

Two kids were passing the old house on their way to the park one day, “I heard that the last person that went in there…never came out.”

Wicked Dreams

So, I’ve been in bed sick with a stomach bug for the last couple of days. I tried sitting at my computer, but it just made me nauseous. The bed won out, I could lay there and binge on Netflix while I drifted in and out of some of the craziest dreams I’ve ever had. I can’t dream of normal things. No, I had to dream about mutant bugs and spiders…then mutant puppies and kittens…swarms of all invading my house. That’s just the two that stood out. It seems like a week since I sat down at my computer, although its not been a full 24hrs since I tried. I wrote about living off the grid and I feel like I’ve been out of this world thanks to some medication I took for my stomach that knocked me out.
I dreamed about Second Life mixed up with Real Life. I dreamed about my responsibilities here and I even tried to talk to a few people on FB messenger. God only knows what they must of thought of my nonsense talk and typos. I’m quite tired of my bed and the fog is starting to lift, I think. I don’t get put down by stomach bugs too often, so I’m hoping it won’t happen again for a very long time…in the meantime, I’ll surrender to sleep when it comes and brace myself for more wicked dreams.

I Do What I Want

So, I had two other posts planned to go ahead of this one, but those damn blogger cunt friends of mine, Grace and Kess, both had similar ideas and outfits. Its not that surprising, really. As we’ve been known to show up at the same places wearing the same outfits, much like Kess and I did today. I refuse to retake my photos or not share the ones I took, because I work hard on what I do, just like they do. However, I am going to wait a few days and if people want to think me a copycat, well, that’s ok, but the three of us all know how we are and its certainly got us in giggles. I love them and sometimes I swear we share a brain! So, I told them I was posting this picture today and showcasing the newest sensation from ChicModa…luckily, Grace is going with the gray version, so make sure you check out her blog, too! As I was going to write about doing what I want anyway, I think its pretty clear that we all do what we want!

Luxury Problems

I was in the shower having that AHHH moment when the hot water washes over me and I was overwhelmed with gratitude. I thought about people all over the world that have never known that simple joy or those that once knew and would give anything to feel it again. I started thinking about all the little things I take for granted. I can go to the kitchen and find plenty to eat anytime I want. I can pet a cat or a dog. I can go outside and look up at the night sky or feel the sun on my face. I can read a book, watch a movie, type up a blog post…etc. I can do so much. I say all the time how blessed I am by the amazing friends I have in Second Life, but I rarely consider how blessed I am in the real world, too.
luxury-problems1
Isn’t it funny how we allow ourselves to get so upset over equally little things such as someone calling us a name? I’ve written about the power we give words before, but how many of us genuinely give power to the opinions of people we don’t even hold in high esteem? Further yet, how many of us let those same people disrespect us all day long, but the minute they target someone else that we love…well, we lose our mind? We’ve all witnessed and probably been targeted by keyboard warriors and I always find it particularly funny when people will proudly state in their profiles or on Facebook that if you mess with my friends I’m going to hurt you…you will feel my wrath. What are you going to do? Sling more words at me? Hello, Mr Block Button. You gonna go tattle like a four year old? Well, that’s a mature approach, not to mention hypocritical. Oh wait, here’s an idea, you can run to one of those bullying pages/sites and start some nasty rumor, because surely THAT is a mature solution, particularly for people that don’t subscribe to such nonsense. Oh, you’re going to rage quit SL or FB? Bye, see you next week!
*winks at Rock & Tracy*
luxury-problems2
Listen, be homeless for a week. Seriously, go try it. Live without the comforts of your real life for one week. Genuinely live without a computer, a roof, a guaranteed meal, a toilet, a shower…for one full week. What you don’t want to? Why not? Think you’ll miss those hot showers? That cuppa whatever you drink first thing in the morning? Your soft bed? You will. You’re absolutely right and when you’re worried about where your next meal is going to come from or where you might sleep safely tonight? Then trivial little problems like someone disrespecting your friend or not getting invited to a virtual surprise party or someone rejecting your advances…all of that? Well, you’ll wish you had those problems. I know, because more than once in my life I’ve been in a place where I heard people complaining about their lives and I was genuinely envious of their problems. They were luxury problems. I’m not suggesting they’re not troublesome, but they are not as big a deal, especially stuff happening in SL, as some of you make it out to be.
luxury-problems-final
For today, let us accept and be grateful for our problems as well as our blessings. Would you be willing to trade your problems with a stranger, having no knowledge of what their problems are before hand? No, then kindly appreciate what you have and be happy! I said, “BE HAPPY, DAMNIT!” *giggles & stomps her foot* Don’t make me play the song….you know the one….about don’t worry, be happy? Oh its stuck in your head now? *whistles & grins* You’re welcome!

Definitions

You can’t really be in Second Life too long without encountering some sort of drama. You can’t even get through your real life without it. Which is why it always amuses me and sends red flags running up my proverbial flag pole whenever I read a profile that declares they don’t do drama. There are all sorts of creative ways that people will say it and I’d like to believe that its usually added after some particularly exhausting episode. However, more often than not, I have found that the most hypocritical of people are the very ones who make declarations about drama, loyalty, and trust. The level of hypocrisy is astounding and I have to wonder who they think they are fooling.

reflections2.jpg

Its heartbreaking to see how toxic people can be to one another, particularly here in Second Life where most of us have been beaten and broken down so much in our real lives that we seek reprieve here, only to find that there is more deception and abuse waiting for us at the hands of bullies that hide behind anonymity using their keyboards as weapons.

reflections3.jpg

And because of the wretchedness I’ve witnessed lately I feel like I should share a few definitions, because clearly there are far too many people who are confused as to what certain words mean.

drama: a state, situation, or series of events involving interesting or intense conflict of forces
loyalty: the act of being loyal
loyal:   unswerving in allegiance: as
             a :  faithful in allegiance to one’s lawful sovereign or government
             b :  faithful to a private person to whom fidelity is due
             c :  faithful to a cause, ideal, custom, institution, or product
trust: belief that someone or something is reliable, good, honest, effective, etc.

The definitions above come directly from Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary. Too many people in Second Life toss these words around loosely, using them to somehow justify the hurt they intentionally cause or try to cause other people. I’m not trying to lecture my readers, I promise I’m not. I just hope to raise a little awareness. I think its very important that we carry ourselves with some integrity and if we want respect, we should be willing to show respect not just for each other but for ourselves. If you question the true meaning of integrity or respect, but all means look them up, because I know there are a lot of people out there tossing those words around too loosely as well.
reflections4.jpg

Let us build one another up, rather than tear one another down. As my dear friend, Kess Crystal, recently blogged…let go of the toxicities, pay attention to red flags, and do what’s best for you. Being cruel to another is never the best for anyone, so please remember that you can walk away from people without malice.

Quick note about the stuff:
Shiny Shabby just opened and as always there’s rows and rows of delights just waiting for you. I managed to grab a few things…so the hair and choker were my must haves for this outfit, but this dress is pure fire and is a new release at ChicModa’s mainstore.

That Moment When…

You know you possibly spend too much time on the internet when you find yourself thinking in memes. Here’s what I mean…I find myself in precarious situations all the time..RL and SL. In those moments, I often find myself thinking things like, “When you think you might throw up, but you forgot to put a new liner in the trash can and you hope you have some under the sink within reach.” Honestly, we all know that would not work as a meme. It’s not funny. It’s not going to make sense to anyone but me. Yet, I found myself thinking that exact though earlier tonight. Followed by this one, “When you realize you think in memes.”
that-moment2
I wonder if I’ll talk like that if/when I get old and senile. I can’t help but wonder how technology is going to change everything. We don’t hear the age old stories about walking ten miles uphill both ways to school anymore, but don’t we find ourselves thinking things we thought we never would or saying things we thought we never would. Then realizing, “OH MY GOD! I’m turning into my MOTHER!” That thought in and of itself is enough to give me nightmares and is far scarier than any movie I have EVER watched.
that-moment3
Speaking of scary, since it is the season for scary things! When I got ready to take these pictures, I went exploring. Once I stopped being distracted by shiny things that I needed to hunt down and obtain for own overcrowded inventory, I found myself at Ms Penny Peacock aka Hallow Gothly‘s incredible Haunted Silent Peacock Hotel. This place is amazing! Truly a must visit sim for anyone looking for something different, but something dark, ominous, and at moments downright creepy. You see, much like myself, Hallow is constantly finding things she wants to to tweak or alter, so your visit today might be slightly different from you visit tomorrow. While I was there the scene in the barn changed completely! I won’t ruin the surprise by telling you what I discovered, but know that this place is perfect for photos. And if you see a  sweet little serial killer doll aka Lizzy Valentine, be sure to ask her for a tour. *grins*
