You keep yours, I’ll keep mine

I will never know if you love me
Or my company, but I don’t mind
‘Cause I ain’t tryna be the one
Been through this a thousand times
I don’t need to take your heart
You keep yours, I’ll keep mine
All I really know is when I’m lonely
I hate that I’m lonely
And that’s why I let you in
And maybe in another life
We fight all day, kiss all night
But I don’t wanna break your heart
You keep yours, I’ll keep mine
I know
We know better, so we’d both better go
I don’t need a reason
To keep on dreamin’
That we don’t lose, yeah, what’s the use?
I don’t need a reason
To keep on dreamin’, oh
That we can win at anything at all

You keep yours, I'll keep mine

It might stop

I’m up all night online
I’m looking up my symptoms
Tell myself I’m fine
But my system just ain’t listenin’
Like ooh
This ain’t normal how I’m feelin’, no
Ooh
Running higher than a fever
When my palms start to sweat
I feel it in my stomach
This is how I get
Every time I know you’re comin’ over
Ooh
Sometimes I think that I might die with you
Ooh
It’s like I’m almost too alive with you
Ahhh
Ooh ohh ooh
Oh, it feels like
My heart’s gonna beat so fast, gonna beat so fast
Gonna beat so fast that it might stop

It might stop

a beautiful conversation about life

I was hanging out with some of my favorite people last night and one of them made a comment about “lazy homeless” people. I quickly jumped on the defensive. As I have been homeless on a number of occasions in my 20s and there was nothing lazy about my situation. Of course, I encountered loads of other homeless people during those times. I had to explain that while there are some people that simply don’t want to be responsible members of society. However, the bulk of the homeless people I encountered were anything but lazy. As being homeless is not an easy way to live. People that live in shelters must abide by an excess of rules put in place to keep things as orderly as possible. There are curfews and requirements one must continuously make to continue their stay and many shelters have limitations on how long people can reside there. I don’t have specific numbers, but I’d dare say that the majority of homeless people have not chosen that lifestyle as their preferred method of existence. Plus there are far more living without shelter. That is NOT an easy way to live. Its beyond dangerous. Once a person is homeless, it is safe to say that getting back on your feet is ridiculously hard. As I pointed out to my friend, what is the first thing you do the morning of a job interview? Shower, right? If you have no home, you have no shower and probably don’t have much in the way of a clean nice outfit to wear.
Anyway, the point is, don’t be so quick to judge people in situations you can’t begin to understand. Turns out that one of the other people there had also experienced homelessness and was glad that I spoke up. Meanwhile, our uninformed friend was enlightened and apologized. I didn’t find the apology necessary, but it was appreciated. I was especially glad that we were all able to have such a beautiful conversation about life without hate or disgust. I won’t name them, because too many private matters were discussed and only my part of the story is mine to tell. I suspect they might read this and because they might I want to give them to know something. I love you and I’m so grateful for your friendship. I look forward to getting to know you even better in the years to come. ♥

Clearly that has nothing to do with the photo. So, I’d like to add that if you have not gotten the Spring Decocrate, this set from Serenity Style is worth getting it, just for this set. Even if you didn’t pre order it, its worth the price. Go grab yours. I have to pay full price, too, cuz I forgot to pre order…lol. You’ll also notice I’m wearing the new Lost Girl dress from Vinyl. This is the first dress Vinyl has released in ages and its so cute! AND it goes perfectly with these new wedges that Breathe released at the Arcade! So get out your wallets, its time to go shopping!!

Sady Stuff!

The moment I saw this sweater, I had to message Annie, “I’m just going to pretend this sweater is named after me!” Annie quickly assured me that it was indeed named after me. I’m honored to have such a beautiful piece named after me. I love how the lines kinda shift around the boobs, like its stretching. It is perfect….the shading, the wrinkles….how the sleeves come down over the wrists as if I’ve been pulling at them and no pokes on the shoulders from being on a hanger in my closet instead of folded on a shelf. *laughs* Seriously, this is one of the most realistic sweaters I’ve seen in SL, like this sweater has been worn….I pushed up the sleeves to do dishes, then I tugged them down over my hands when I took the dog out. For me, this sweater tells a story,
To top off the sweater, Katya named a pose set after me! It’s a perfect set of poses for blogging, too. So, I’ll be using them all eventually. For now, I’m just using one of them to pose pretty in front of this scene composed mostly from two of THOR’s lastest gacha sets.
I’m not going to pretend that I’m not excited over having such awesome creations named after me. It’s an honor anytime a designer names something after you and I am genuinely chuffed. (Can’t tell I have British friends, can you?)

A Long Week

So this is the same outfit I wore in my previous post, It’s Tannenbaum Time, but I changed the colors to a less festive theme. *laughs* Y’all know I couldn’t get out of that green & red fast enough, right? This is why fatpack is my favorite color! I’ll keep this one short & sweet…its going to be a long week! There’s going to be a lot of sales out there this week in both worlds, so please stay safe and Happy Shopping♥

I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant

It’s been seven hours and fifteen days
Since you took your love away
I go out every night and sleep all day
Since you took your love away

Since you’ve been gone I can do whatever I want
I can see whomever I choose
I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant
But nothing
I said nothing can take away these blues

‘Cause nothing compares
Nothing compares to you

You’re still the only one

So we’ve put an end to it this time.
I’m no longer yours and you’re no longer mine.
You said this hill looks far too steep
If I’m not even sure it’s me you wanna keep.
And it’s been ten days without you in my reach,
And the only time I’ve touched you is in my sleep.

But time has changed nothing at all –
You’re still the only one that feels like home.
I’ve tried cutting the ropes and
I let you go but you’re still the only one
That feels like home.
~ Missy Higgins – Ten Days

Take One Day Away

“Every person needs to take one day away.  A day in which one consciously separates the past from the future.  Jobs, family, employers, and friends can exist one day without any one of us, and if our egos permit us to confess, they could exist eternally in our absence.  Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for.  Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.”

Pretty Good Week

This week has been a complete whirlwind. So much has happened in such a small span of time and here we are. It’s Friday already. There’s an abundance of things happening all across the grid this weekend, so I’m sure its going to fly by and Monday will be rearing its head before I’ve had time to blink. It’s been a pretty good week overall. I did have a bout of PTSD and that sucked, but I got through it using the tools I’ve learned in therapy. So, that’s another win. I’m really proud of myself for getting through that as well as I did. All that being said, I’m in a fantastic mood and I’m refusing to let anyone ruin that. I’m going to have a fun filled weekend and get lots of sleep! *nods*

How will we be remembered?

The 1920s are often referred to as the roaring 20s, but I have to wonder how 2020s will be recognized. The coughing 20s? Lord knows this year has been anything but boring, but roaring sure isn’t how I’d describe it. Perhaps this will be the year of DOOM or maybe despair. Each decade of the 20th century holds its own special place in the fashion annuls, but what will we remember about the 21st century. How will we collectively be remembered long after we’re gone?
