Safe Place

The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned. Maya Angelou

I think that’s true for most of us, even in SL. I know for me, I like having a space that is just mine. A place for me to go afk safely. A place to decorate with my favorite things. Even in a virtual world, I need that safe place.

Lost on You

If you’ve never heard of LP, I heard you to check out more of her work. This song captures so much of how I’m feeling these days….

LP ~ Lost on You

When you get older, plainer, saner
When you remember all the danger we came from
Burning like embers, falling, tender
Long before the days of no surrender
Years ago and well you know
Smoke ’em if you got ’em
‘Cause it’s going down
All I ever wanted was you
I’ll never get to heaven
‘Cause I don’t know how
Let’s raise a glass or two
To all the things I’ve lost on you
Oh oh
Tell me are they lost on you?
Oh oh
Just that you could cut me loose
Oh oh
After everything I’ve lost on you
Is that lost on you?
Oh oh
Is that lost on you?
Oh oh
Baby, is that lost on you?
Is that lost on you?
Wishing I could see the machinations
Understand the toil of expectations in your mind
Hold me like you never lost your patience
Tell me that you love me more than hate me all the time
And you’re still mine
So smoke ’em if you’ve got ’em
‘Cause it’s going down
All I ever wanted was you
Let’s take a drink of heaven
This can turn around
Let’s raise a glass or two
To all the things I’ve lost on you
Oh oh
Tell me are they lost on you?
Oh oh
Just that you could cut me loose
Oh oh
After everything I’ve lost on you
Is that lost on you?
Oh oh
Is that lost on you?
Oh oh, oh oh
Bab, is that lost on you?
Is that lost on you?
Let’s raise a glass or two
To all the things I’ve lost on you
Oh oh
Tell me are they lost on you?
Oh oh
Just that you cold cut me loose
Oh oh
After everything I’ve lost on you
Is that lost on you?
Is that lost on you?

City Lights

Sometimes a song just embodies a feeling, but combine it with just one picture and both come together to create something amazing. That’s really what I hoped to do here.

Palastic – City Lights

City lights, the urban landscape,
Stands before our eyes.
City lights, our lives are caught up,
In these neon lights

Oh, so very frightened the park will seem.
Yet, we do our best to cherish one another,
City lights, although I love you,
Sometimes hate with doubt.

Oh, so very frightened to be alone,
Yet we do our best to keep a civil distance
City lights, although I love you,
Sometimes hate with doubt.

I cannot solve the mystery
Of what is fake and what is real,
I cannot solve the mystery,
Of who we are and who we’ll be!

City lights, the urban landscape,

Stands before our eyes.
City lights, our lives are caught up,
In these neon lights

Oh, so very frightened the park will seem.
Yet, we do our best to cherish one another,
City lights, I’ll always hate you,
‘Till the end of time.

I’m pretending to,
Be surprised at you lying.
You pretend not to,
See the passion inside.

We are trying to,
Understand everything.
You’ve decided to,
Let the light of me in.

We are trying to,
Understand everything.
You’ve decided to,
Let the light of me in.

Warm On A Cold Night

I promise I’m trying to get back to actually writing wit my blogs, because its what I do. I’m just going through a hard time right now. I’ll be alright. I know that, but for now I am still hurting too much to talk about it.

Honne – Warm On A Cold Night

Like a rabbit in headlights
They’re stunned by all your charm
And I feel so damn lucky
To have you on my arm
And I can’t help but wonder
How we ended up alright
And I love you like no other
‘Cause this has never felt so right
Yeah you can keep me warm on a cold night
Warm on a cold cold night
Yeah you can keep me warm on a cold night
Warm on a cold cold night
I want to treat you something special
Give you what you deserve
I want to take you to paradise
In a 1950’s Merc
And I can’t help but wonder
Just how we ended up alright
And I love you like no other
And this has never felt so right
You can keep me warm on a cold night
Warm on a cold cold night
You can keep me warm on a cold night
Warm on a cold cold night
Girl you can keep me warm
You can keep me real warm
There’s just one thing
Girl you could have anyone
So why you choosing me and not leaving me on my own
Girl you could be with anyone
So thanks for making me your number one
You can keep me warm on a cold night
Warm on a cold cold night
Yeah you can keep me warm on a cold night
Warm on a cold cold night
Yeah wrap me up and keep warm on a cold night
Warm on a cold cold night
Oh yeah you can keep me warm on a cold night
Warm on a cold cold night

Oh Deer

When I was putting this scene together, I couldn’t help but get lost as I was thrown down memory lane. Earlier this year, I lost my aunt. I shouldn’t say I lost her, because to be honest, I didn’t really like her. My mom lost her sister. My mom was and still is quite heartbroken. While I didn’t like my aunt very much, there were things I liked about her. I loved visiting her for a few days at a time, because she lived on a mountain in the hills of West Virginia. I know, I know, but seriously, its a beautiful state, especially in the fall when the leaves are so vibrant. I loved being so enveloped in mother nature. There were deer that would come into her yard every night as the sun was going down and you never knew when you’d see a bear lurking about looking for apples. My aunt was especially gullible and I even had her hunting ghost orbs in the Catholic cemetery at the bottom of the mountain once. *laughs* Her home was rustic and so far removed from modern society to include dial up internet as it was all she could get where she lived.
I didn’t agree with her views on life, religion, or politics. I didn’t think she was a very nice person, but there we managed to share some funny moments. Like the time we mouthed words to each other and made my mother think she was going deaf. She fought hard the last few years of her life and finally couldn’t fight anymore. I understood that and I admired her decision to tell her family she was done fighting. To say goodbye and let her go. I know that took a lot of courage for her, considering how close she was to her children and how much she loved her husband. I dedicate this post to her, even though she has never approved of me, my lifestyle, my beliefs, etc. *laughs*

My Blogging Journey – #SecondLifeChallenge

I’m stepping up to do another Strawberry Singh challenge! Yep and this one is all about my blogging journey.

  1. How long have you been blogging about Second Life? I started once many years ago, but didn’t stick with it. I didn’t really know about Flickr and thought it was a good way to show off the awful pictures I was taking. I really thought they were good at the time. *laughs* I started my current blog in March 2016, so the answer would be a year and half…math is hard.
  2. Why did you start blogging? two years ago, I went through one of the hardest times in my life. I acted out and behaved recklessly. I watched my dear friend, Kess Crystal, who was also going through a lot. She was getting better and she had dove into her blog for therapeutic purposes. I had been taking much better pictures the previous year and decided that I would try blogging again. Perhaps it would therapeutic for me, too. It did and it continues to be a great outlet for my emotions and creativity.
  3. How many times a week/month do you post? More often than not, at least once a day. Sometimes twice a day. Once in a blue moon, I take one day off a week.
  4. Do you keep track of how many hits or subscribers you have? I did in the beginning. I was practically obsessed with it. I look about once a month now or after a blog that particularly special to me.
  5. Which electronic devices do you use to blog with? Just my PC. I can’t imagine doing it any other way.
  6. Do you monetize your blog? If so, do you mind sharing how much you make approximately? No, I don’t. However, because of my amazing sponsors I do manage to save a ton on shopping. So, in a way, I guess you could say I do, but I can’t really put a price tag on that.
  7. What has Second life blogging  taught you? Wow, it really has taught me so much, but to list everything…I’m not sure I could. I’ve learned the value of self marketing, good manners, being true to myself, better organization skills, and so very much more.
  8. Do you feel like Second Life blogging takes away from your real life? It can only take what I give. So, no, right now it enriches my life. It will always be up to me to maintain a balance between real life and Second Life.
  9. Do you have a mission statement for your blog, if so, what is it? Not really, if anything I have a mission statements for my life: I do what I want. My blog, my way.
  10. Share your top 3 tips for new bloggers/vloggers.
    a. 
    Do this because you love it, not for free stuff. They will know the difference.
    b. Don’t take rejection personally. It’s impossible to know why they like this blogger over that one. I didn’t fully understand that until I became a blog manager. I assure you, it is not personal.
    c.  Be true to yourself. Don’t blog for a store you don’t fully support. Your integrity is not worth free stuff. Remember why you started doing this in the first place.

My Office

office

I have this weird thing to admit. *inhales* I have this thing about office furniture, equipment, and supplies. I always have. As long as I can remember. I remember at one point as a child turning my walk-in closet into an office. I had a lamp, desk, and chair in there. I would sit in my closet for hours writing and drawing. It was a safe place away from my parents and for some reason made me feel more important.
So, it should come as no surprise that whenever I’m setting up a new home in SL, I always want an office space. Somewhere I can sit while working on blogs, scrolling through Facebook, making my avatar simulate the real me…complete with an ashtray and generally a bit of a mess. Josh and I just moved…again…and as I was setting up the house, I knew immediately that I had a new office look. Until now, I have used the same set up for the past year or two, but now thanks the Fancy Decor’s Dover set at the Arcade…I have a brand new office and I absolutely love it. I know I will be spending a lot of time in there surrounded by beautiful things and with a gorgeous view of the beach right outside the window.

Broken

It’s impossible to get through this life without some heartache and heartbreak. I’ve been going through more than my fair share of both lately and quite frankly I’m getting a little tired of it. I feel so very broken to the core of my soul. I’m quite sure my quota has been met for a good long while and to make sure I protect the few remaining pieces of my shattered heart, I shall lock them away behind some very tall, strong walls. Yes, I know I’m not supposed to give up, blah blah blah. I do what I want and right now, as I lick my wounds, the plan is to not get sucked into another situation where I fall and get hurt. I’ve loved and I’ve lost and while yes, the ride was worth the fall. I can’t take too many more falls and retain the shred of humanity that remains.

broken-insert

 

In the meantime, I plan to be surrounded by some of the most wonderful friends a girl could ever hope for and to pour myself into productive projects that will hopefully distract me and push me forward. I’m not writing all of this for sympathy, because in the end that doesn’t do much for me. I have a few ears that let me rant and cry as needed. That’s more than I could hope for when feeling this low. I’m not giving up on life, just giving up on the idea that romantic love is going to play any part in my future. I’m not sad about that. In fact, it feels quite liberating. I’ve had plenty of romance in my life, more than my fair share. I have nothing to complain about there. I merely don’t feel like going through this pain again, just like I don’t go placing my hand on a hot stove or my finger in a light socket…anymore. (Oh shush, you probably did it to.) So, if you see me getting all giddy or excited about someone, feel free to slap me with this post and remind me just how bad this crap hurts.

broken-tear

In the meantime, FaMESHed opened and well, lets just say there’s plenty of retail therapy to be had out there. So, if you or someone you love is going through hard times, I highly recommend grabbing your wallet and going straight to the nearest event for some good old fashioned retail therapy. Let’s face it, new jewelry like the Communique Set from Empyrean Forge can make even the coldest heart feel divine! Bring on the shopping and the wine!

Waiting Games

Electronics have become the common go to method for passing time. Its evident in waiting rooms around the world as people stare into their phones and tablets. Most of us take them everywhere. Hopefully, we put them down while we drive! I do, so should you, but no lectures today. ☺ I hate to admit how attached I’ve become to my smart phone and other electronics to be honest. The cats and dog have been trained to avoid cords and to use caution when humans are holding their phones. Fortunately, I rarely run into a dead battery, but there have a been a few times that I’ve had to put them all down so they can charge and the waiting game begins.
waiting
Its always when my electronics are temporarily out of reach or commision that I remember all the things I need to do with them or to them. In turn, I’m creating an even bigger need for them, which then makes the waiting all the more agonizing. Those that know me well know that I have no tolerance for boredom. I will always find a way to amuse myself no matter what the situation. I am an only child that spent a great deal of my early childhood in isolation. I have a fantastic imagination and I will find adventures at every turn. I’m sure we all played the “hot lava” or “sharks/gators in the water” games when we were kids, right? Hopping from one piece of furniture to another…taking great care to never touch the floor, while giggling and squealing with delight as we narrowly miss our imaginary doom. Now here we all are in a virtual world playing with virtual clothes and furnishings and still escaping doom! At least escaping it for a while anyway…*giggles*
waiting still
I realize I’m sort of rambling, but that’s how my mind works sometimes. Welcome to the madness! What started this train of thought? I’m glad you asked. Yes, you did ask…this conversation is happening in MY mind and it was there that you asked just that question. Now, hush and let me answer. *grins*
I was putting together the scene above to display the Ramses Collection from Fancy Decor for the September round of The Arcade, which we are all anxiously waiting for…see what I did there? I know I mentioned the set a few days ago and teased you with a sneak peak, but  there are 19 pieces available in this set and each piece is exquisite. In the previous post about the collection I indicated that the chairs and sofa come with a hud that allows you to change the color of the fabric. I showed you a gorgeous purple chair. As I put this room together I knew I had to show you the luxurious silver suede. Isn’t it stunning?
Okay, so why insert myself in a picture about furnishings? Because I’ve been waiting days and days for the dress I’m wearing here and since the post is called Waiting Games, its only right that I show you something else that I waited on, right?
See, what’s happening here is that I’m showing you a way to fill that little void of time between now and when The Arcade actually opens, plus you’re going to want to look your best while shopping, right? Naturally all the details are below…Happy Shopping! ♥
