Empty

Olivia O’Brien- Empty

I can’t handle these pressures
All I can say is this stress hurts
Things are supposed to get better
I just need to put myself first
I’m always trying my hardest
Not to pick myself apart, this
Energy’s killing my vibes now
Sometimes I just wanna drown out
All of the thoughts in my mind
Too much going on at the same time
I wish it would stop and I’ve tried, but
Life just sucks then we all die

That’s just reality, yeah don’t lie to me
Yeah I’m fucked up but I don’t wanna be

I wonder if I’m good enough
But maybe I’ve just had too much
To drink, to smoke, to swallow
I’m drownin’ up my sorrows
There’s rules I’ll never follow
Pretend there’s no tomorrow
I wish there was no tomorrow

But I’m empty inside, yeah I’m empty inside
And I don’t wanna live but I’m too scared to die
Yeah I’m empty inside, I just don’t feel alive
And I don’t wanna live but I’m too scared to die

Wish I could erase my memories
So I could stop feeling so empty
I wish this shit wasn’t so tempting
But it’s hard to resist when there’s plenty
Of things I could do to fuck me up
I wanna let go but I’m feeling so stuck
So all I can do is fill up my cup
And sit here alone hoping no one disrupts

That’s just reality, yeah don’t lie to me
Yeah I’m fucked up but I don’t wanna be

I wonder if I’m good enough
But maybe I’ve just had too much
To drink, to smoke, to swallow
I’m drownin’ up my sorrows
There’s rules I’ll never follow
Pretend there’s no tomorrow
I wish there was no tomorrow

But I’m empty inside, yeah I’m empty inside
And I don’t wanna live but I’m too scared to die
Yeah I’m empty inside, I just don’t feel alive
And I don’t wanna live but I’m too scared to die

My body’s shakin’
My head is achin’
It feels like my heart is breakin’
My body’s shakin’
My head is achin’
I can’t fix this mess I’m makin’

But I’m empty inside, yeah I’m empty inside
And I don’t wanna live but I’m too scared to die
Yeah I’m empty inside, I just don’t feel alive
And I don’t wanna live but I’m too scared to die

DollHouse

While putting this scene together, there was a song going through my head and every time I look at this picture I still hear it. So, here ya go, I’m sharing my ear worm with you all. I’ll even give you the lyrics! *giggles & sings*

Melanie Martinez – Dollhouse

Hey girl, open the walls, play with your dolls
We’ll be a perfect family
When you walk away, it’s when we really play
You don’t hear me when I say,
Mom, please wake up
Dad’s with a slut, and your son is smoking cannabis
No one never listens, this wallpaper glistens
Don’t let them see what goes down in the kitchen
Places, places, get in your places
Throw on your dress and put on your doll faces
Everyone thinks that we’re perfect
Please don’t let them look through the curtains
Picture, picture, smile for the picture
Pose with your brother, won’t you be a good sister?
Everyone thinks that we’re perfect
Please don’t let them look through the curtains
D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
I see things that nobody else sees
(D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
I see things that nobody else sees)
Hey girl, look at my mom, she’s got it going on
Ha, you’re blinded by her jewelry
When you turn your back she pulls out a flask
And forgets his infidelity
Uh-oh, she’s coming to the attic, plastic
Go back to being plastic
No one never listens, this wallpaper glistens
One day they’ll see what goes down in the kitchen
Places, places, get in your places
Throw on your dress and put on your doll faces
Everyone thinks that we’re perfect
Please don’t let them look through the curtains
Picture, picture, smile for the picture
Pose with your brother, won’t you be a good sister?
Everyone thinks that we’re perfect
Please don’t let them look through the curtains
D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
I see things that nobody else sees
(D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
I see things that nobody else sees)
Hey girl (hey girl, hey girl, hey girl, hey girl)
Hey girl, open your walls, play with your dolls
We’ll be a perfect family
Places, places, get in your places
Throw on your dress and put on your doll faces
Everyone thinks that we’re perfect
Please don’t let them look through the curtains
Picture, picture, smile for the picture
Pose with your brother, won’t you be a good sister?
Everyone thinks that we’re perfect
Please don’t let them look through the curtains

Help Yourself by Helping Others

“The best way to cheer yourself up, is to cheer somebody else up.” -Mark Twain

I believe this to be true wholeheartedly. For ages, people have figured out that the best way to get out of you own head is to help other people. When we sit too long in our own problems we can drown in them and find ourselves so lost that we begin to lose hope. It’s when we lose hope that we truly become miserable and that is when we are the most dangerous…to ourselves and everyone around us. Our misery makes us toxic. Think about how good it feels to help someone in need. I don’t mean dropping a few dollars into the bucket with the bell ringers at the holidays. I mean, to support a friend and watch them succeed. I mean, to hand a meal to a homeless person. I mean opening our hearts and genuinely helping someone that is going through something so wretched, that we can’t begin to fathom the road on which they travel.
We’ve all had things go terribly wrong from time to time. We’ve all watched someone else suffering and felt absolutely helpless from the sidelines, especially in a virtual world. However, there is something happening right now that could forever change someone’s life in such a wonderful way. It hasn’t started yet, but it shall begin soon. In the meantime, I want to spread the word and I hope that you will, too. A dear friend of mine has undergone the unthinkable this year and despite it all, she has maintained the same positive attitude that made so many of us love her from the very beginning. I won’t go deep into it here, but if you’d like to help someone that not only needs help…and would never in a million years ask….there’s about to be a fundraising event and there’s something for everyone.

Panties

Don’t get your panties in a bunch.
Don’t get your panties in a wad.
Don’t get your panties twisted.
Don’t get your knickers twisted.
In other words, calm down, right?

Has this ever worked? I used to work in collections for a major telecommunications firm years ago and one of the first things they tell you is NEVER tell a customer to calm down. They went on to say that it has been proven time and time again to only enrage people more. Calm down. Two simple words, but when used together and told to someone that is seriously upset (regardless of why) it does not work. So, we came up with funny ways to say it to our friends and family like the panties and knickers lines.
panties-insert
Guess what? It works a lot better. For one thing, if delivered the right way its just going to snap your friends or family out of their breakdown with a laugh. Laughter is the best medicine after all. Which one of a thousand reason why marijuana is so awesome…just throwing that out there. Anyhooo, I was taking pictures of these amazing new panties from Phedora and got tickled thinking about how often we tell people what to do with their panties and knickers.

I’m tired and don’t really have some deep philosophical post for you today…*laughs*…but I had to show off my butt! Cuz c’mon, these panties are fantastic! And sometimes a girl just like to show her ass!

What if…we get real?

How was your day?
Such a simple question to ask, but it can make a world of difference to the person you’re asking. Its usually the first thing I say after, “Hi Baby!” when I see Sino each day. Whenever I’m excited about something, I tend to make my story first followed by embarrassment for not asking him how his day was first, because honestly…what if he had a bad day? Is he really going to be happy that one of my photos was chosen for the cover of a Flickr group? Sure, deep down, but probably not what he wants to talk about, then again it might be just the distraction he’s looking for. I won’t know until I ask about his day.

welcome-home2

I’ve been thinking about this a lot. We often start conversations with, “How are you?”
On occasion someone give an honest answer, but do we really want to know that their IBS is acting up or that they just stubbed their toe or that their boss just laid into them over some stupid project that’s not even due until next week or its shark week and I swear to God if I sneeze there will be a crime scene worthy of Dexter in my pants? I think some of us do really want to know and yet when people ask us how we are…most of us give a general answer like, “I’m fine and you?”
Then we wonder why conversations die. What if we got real and honest with one another? I know, it seems almost like a foreign concept these days in Second Life, but for those of us that are REAL friends and do discuss real life, it might be interesting, dontcha think? I dunno, just food for thought from the depths of a twisted mind.

Let’s talk about the stuff for a minute. It seems like another event opens every day and its getting harder and harder to keep up, especially if you’re on a budget. However, there are certain items out there that just call to you and no matter how many suits you own or how many thigh high boots you already have…we won’t even discuss hair…you just have to have THAT! So, I’m sharing some of my absolute must haves with you…from Sino’s awesome suit and my outfit to some stuff for my house, because anyone that knows me knows I’m always decorating and my home is forever evolving. Enjoy!
