Tiffany’s Challenge

Alright, so the other day, I challenged my readers to challenge me in a post so adequately titled: Challenge to Challenge. The first to offer up a challenge was my ever so sweet girl, Tiffany Parkin. She wants me to compare a sextant and a football. Well, I had to look up sextant, because I had no clue what it was. I must admit, I was quite disappointed to find out that it actually has nothing at all to do with sex. *sighs* That Tiffany is such a tease!
So, to start off, these two things have one thing in common right off the bat. I know nothing about either one. I now know that one is used for celestial navigation or something like that…the other, well, is the ball with which American football is played and looks nothing like a ball in my opinion. I guess the next thing they have in common is stars. Although one deals with the stars in the sky, the other often produces the celebrity type.  Pretty sure you could bore me to death talking about either one of them, as well. So, there you have it….I did my best. *shakes her head and mutters about Tiffany being a sadist*

You call that a challenge

Are You Serious?

Alright, as a perpetually single woman on the grid, I find myself meeting some very interesting people. Yes, a good portion of them are men, for the lack of a better word. Most of them have been pretty nice experiences, but there’s enough bad apples out there….that I’m beginning to avoid the orchard. Although, I’ve heard about women receiving unsolicited dick pics, that has yet to be my experience. What I have experienced has been far more bizarre in my opinion. I’m not going to tell full stories of how I get myself into these situations, but below you will find a few examples of what I  consider to be such bizarre interactions that I’m always left with the same question, “Are you serious?”

  • I was on voice with this guy, I had invited him to my land, things seemed normal enough as we talked about random things like music and movies when he just lies down in my SL bed and says he’s going to sleep there. I thought he was kidding, but then I hear this strange noise from his end of things. Yes, it sounded like he was jerking off. Being me, I just asked him, “Uhm, are you jerking off?” He just keep making the noise until he ‘finished’ and said, “Yeah, I always do before I go to sleep.”
  • I was having a first conversation with a guy. He’s told me a few things about himself. He’s told me I’m cute, blah blah…then says, “Going AFK.” To which I replied, “OK.” Then he said, “I’m going to jerk off, I’ve been needing to do this all day.”
  • I was talking to a friend of mine on Skype, oddly enough about a guy that had been trying to talk to both of us. During our conversation, he IMed both of us separately. He told her that he was helping his best friend inworld, he told me that he was cooking dinner. He went quiet to both of us for about an hour. Then he began with his IMs again, sending her spanks and sending me kisses.
  • The ex-boyfriend of a friend, messaged me on Facebook with pornographic gifs. I asked why on earth he thought it was okay to send those to me and his answer was, “I thought you’d like them.” Next thing I know he was sent me a 15 sec video of him jacking off.
  • I was cuddling with a guy that I had been getting to know pretty well. We were kissing and talking, when he suddenly stands up and says, “I gotta go, my ex girlfriend needs me.”
bags are packed
and people wonder why I’ve declared myself perpetually single

Summer Breeze

“Summer breeze, makes me feel fine, blowing through the jasmine in my mind”
~Summer Breeze – Seals & Croft

This is one of those songs that takes me back to childhood summers in Alabama. As a child I didn’t notice the heat so much, I just knew its warm and the sun is shining, and that meant I could go outside to play. I loved playing outside as a kid. Its not something I see many kids doing where I live unless they’re at the pool. In some ways its kinda sad to see the kids of today more glued to little blue screens than focused on playing tag or hide-n-seek, but I would imagine some of the mothers rest a little easier knowing exactly where their children are, rather than worrying about them getting snatched up or climbing and falling off a scaffold that the workers left behind while working on their apartment building.  *laughs* Yeah, I might have climbed a four story scaffold as a kid, luckily none of us fell, but if our mothers had know what we were doing. *giggles*
From time to time I do see boys outside tossing around a football and because there’s a park next to my neighborhood I can hear the cheers and whistles of soccer (football is you live outside the U.S.) games on occasion. Perhaps its because of where I live that I don’t see a lot of children outside playing, but when I think back to my childhood I’m ever so grateful to have memories of chasing lightening bugs as the sun began to set, because lets face it…we all knew that when those street lights came on, it was time to get our little butts in the house.

I don’t spend nearly as much time outside these days as I did as a child, but again, I’m grateful for the memories of my own. My childhood wasn’t all great, but I truly have some amazing memories worth a visit from time to time and there’s nothing like a summer breeze stirring up the jasmines in my garden to take me back. I hope that summer treats you all well and that you can revisit some of your own beautiful memories. ♥

Life is Messy Enough

Life is Messy Enough

Our real lives offer enough challenges. The fact that we can escape some of those challenges for even a few minutes or hours in SL, gives us an advantage that a lot of people don’t get to experience.  In Second Life, we can escape our health problems and physical limitations. We can avoid household chores and even people. So, why do so many come into SL and create a mess in a virtual world? Why do so many come here to sling mud, spread rumors, and toss about deep seeded judgmental rhetoric? Its simply pathetic.
I can only imagine that these people are so miserable in their real lives that they’ve somehow become convinced that by creating havoc here, somehow makes their real lives seem better. That somehow the fact that they’ve created such a mess in a virtual world that they somehow have developed power. Just theories, honestly, I cannot know. What I do know is that if you don’t want unnecessary drama and general messes in you SL, you definitely have power there. Cut out the toxic people, the toxic thoughts, and above all, keep your nose out of other people’s business. If they are not hurting YOU, then why do you care so much what your ex boyfriend, ex girlfriend or ex bestie is doing now? It seems to me, you need to work on healing and letting go, rather than deflecting and holding onto resentments that do more harm to your spirit than anyone else’s.

life-is-messy-enough1

Why bother wasting precious energy on hate? No one is forcing you to be in SL, no one is forcing any of us to be here. No one is forcing romantic relationships or uncomfortable lifestyles on anyone. With options like block, mute, teleport, and signing out, there’s simply no excuse to come to SL and be miserable. I guess I’m a little tired of hearing everyone gripe about drama and politics and what they hate about SL. I’m more interested in the things I love, the things that I enjoy, the amazing friends I’ve made from every corner of the globe. Yes, I suppose I’m bitching a little bit about the miserable people, but I’ve brought my piece of mind to my blog and no one is being forced to read it. Hell, at least one person I know only looks at the picture, clicks like and moves on. I’m not sure he’s ever read a blog post in his life. *winks at Kess, cuz she knows him even better than I*

life-is-messy-enough2

So, now that I’ve shared a piece of my mind (no, I really can’t afford it, give it back), let me share with you some really nice goodies that are being delivered across the grid by some of SL’s top creators and designers. Have a look at the details below for the whats and wheres. I’m off to go do more things I love and I hope you will do the same. Afterall, shopping is one of my favorite SL hobbies…totally a hobby, right?

Gacha, Gatcha, Gotcha!

I have no idea who originated the quote or if I even have it right…or even close, but I’ve said it for years never believing for one second that I was being original, “Opinions are like assholes. Everyone has one, but everyone doesn’t want to hear yours.”
gotcha

I’ve been on the grid for almost ten years now and I’ve witnessed a great deal of change. Not just from base prims to flexi to sculpts to mesh, but photography and marketing, too. I’m not claiming to be an expert on all things Second Life. I’m far too easily distracted by occurrences in my own small world. However, I have had the pleasure of once upon a time owning a store, a club, and various jobs along the way. From customer service to management, I’ve tried my hand at quite a few things. This isn’t even my first attempt at blogging. One of the biggest changes I’ve seen is the approach to marketing.
Hunts don’t seem to be as big of a deal as they once were, as a lot of designers just didn’t put as much effort into the hunt prizes and fewer people wanted to participate for that reason.
I remember when Gachas first showed up and I thought they were such a cute novel idea. They quickly became an addiction and even a way of life for some. It took me a while, but I think I’ve finally gotten my personal relationship with these vexing little machines under control. The irony is in the name…although I’m not even sure what is the correct spelling anymore.
A few years ago, I took a year long break from the grid and upon my return Events were all the rage. I’m not sure when they started exactly or which ones were even first, but they’ve certainly become the most common method of shopping now. More focus is placed on events these days than actual brands and some designers don’t even seem to have an actual store, but can be found in all the big events.
Now the newest trend seems to be the monthly boxes containing exclusive content. You pay L$XXXX each month and receive a box of merchandise that will surpass the value, containing exclusive items.
Another trend, that I first noticed happening with Gacha projects, is the colloboration efforts between designers.

Now, these are all amazing and fantastic ideas and I love all watching the innovation. I love all the excitement over new and shiny things being delivered in new and shiny ways! I know a lot of people out there aren’t happy about the monthly boxes. There are people out there that are even anti-gacha…I know, can you imagine? Well, here’s the good news!  No one is forcing anyone to participate in ANY of these events. Period.  No one forces anyone to participate in  Second Life and no one is forcing anyone to shop. So, unless a designer is being unethical, I just don’t believe we should be lashing out at them on social media, which seems to be a trend of its own these days. Plus, it kinda just makes you look childish, mean, and bitter…so put on your big boy/girl panties and try to be enough of an adult to warrant having a social media page in the first place, will ya?
gatcha

I will continue to enjoy my Luxe Box, my gachas, and anything else on the grid that I see fit…judge me if you want, but you have to admit…I look FABULOUS! ♥

Hope

Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness. Desmond Tutu
hope

I was talking with a couple of dear friends, Kess & Tackett,  this evening about positive attitudes vs negative attitudes. How draining it is to be around someone that absolutely insists on seeing the negative to every situation. As I put this scene together, I was thinking about how difficult it can be at times to remain positive. I remembered this quote and while it took me a while to find it, I knew this was going to be the premise for this post.

hope2I think with all the wretched news flooding social media these days, its important that we not lose hope for humanity. In the face of all the evil and adversity going on, we’ve got to remember that there are still some exceptionally wonderful people in this world and to put in my friend Tracy’s words, “They’re doing amazing shit!” While her wording is very casual, its certainly to the point and I like it. Plus, there’s a little inside joke for all the people that were at Kess’ Blithe set today. Which brings me back to my point…sorta.
I believe that most of us come to Second Life seeking some form of joy. (If you’re seeking misery just watch the news and leave the rest of us alone, would ya?) You see all forms of legitimate fundraising across the grid, whether its building a school in Africa, relay for life, or something more personal, such as The Book of Daniel event. This is proof that there are incredible individuals all around the world. So, losing hope? No, I will not lose hope, because I encounter amazing people doing amazing shit ever day. To all the amazing people out there..regardless of your contribution..shopping or creating, or both…I thank you….thank you for keeping hope alive. ♥

Laugh

A well-developed sense of humor is the pole that adds balance to your steps as you walk the tightrope of life. William Arthur Ward
lrd-scrunch

When life, particularly Second Life, gets so serious that you dread the company of certain people or the chore of certain activities, its time to take a step back and find your balance. We all came to the grid for  personal reasons, each of us found our own path here, and a lot of have stayed. Its important that we remember what led us here and why we stay. I, for one, do not stay for the hatred and the drama…the rumors and gossip…the jealousy and mind games…the insecurities and cattiness. No, I stay because this is where I laugh the hardest. For only in Second Life does one embrace the good ole days of hairy ass teleportation. Only in Second Life does one remember fondly the fantastic days that flexi emerged and we were running..spinning…and jumping just to watch our hair and skirts slice through our avatars with the wind.
It is in the land of the Lindens that so many of us first learned about blue waffles, that glass jar, one cup, and other  twisted pictures/videos that forever changed our view of the world(Google at your own risk, people). Some of us have found true love, true friends, true passions, and some even discovered a new career path. We found each other. We wandered into a virtual world and stumbled upon a gold mine of beautiful minds filled with ideas and we fuel each other and we love each other and then…
lrd-scrunch2
Well, sadly you can’t be on the internet or elsewhere in the world without discovering trolls, drama, and other various forms of toxicity. While we can’t avoid it entirely we can take the power away from all the toxic people, places, and things in our world simply by walking away. It doesn’t matter who is to blame. It doesn’t matter if its them, us, or our reaction to them…sometimes we simply don’t mesh well with certain individuals. When that happens, the best way to remain positive…to keep laughing…is to walk away. Whether its temporary or permanently.
I recently listened to a diatribe from someone as they insisted that walking away was a terrible solution and how that’s not how we do things in the real world, but I beg to differ. That is precisely what I do in the real world. I have done it over and over again. I’m not giving up on people, I’m giving up on situations. There is absolutely no reason for me to subject myself to uncomfortable situations simply because I’ve known someone for X many years. I’m not suggesting we walk away at the first sign of trouble, but when it becomes evident that our inner peace simply isn’t possible in certain situations…well…figure it out.
The power is ours and if we’re going to keep laughing we gotta keep smiling. The power is ours. Ours. So, grab life by the proverbial balls and have some fun! The world is dark enough, does it really need us voluntarily adding to it? Nah.
Live and laugh…they go hand in hand for a reason. Here’s wishing you a life full of laughter and love, because a life without love and laughter is hardly a life at all. ❤

Well, I just got all carried away on that slippery little soap box, didn’t I? So, below you’ll find what you really came for…details on all the goodies pictured above. A fantastic new dress from LRD over at Swank, the awesome kickass boots from Represent over at TMD, and that adorable lab puppy that you can grab from The Arcade. If all of that isn’t enough to make you smile, maybe knowing that we’re closer to the Pandora Box of Dreams sim being open to the public (Sept 16th). For now, I offer you another glimpse at the beautiful sim that Mizaki and Lokhe have put together. Oh relax, I’ll post more pictures before the 16th…oh you want to go check it for yourself? *grins* Well, you can…soon…ish. *grins* In the meantime, go shopping so you’ll have plenty of awesomeness to wear when you go exploring!

F*ck With Myself

“Cause I fuck with myself more than anybody else” ~Banks’ Fuck With Myself

fuck-with-myself

Like so many other people I know, I have a tendency to overthink things. I will read all sorts of scenarios into a situation, especially with my overactive imagination. Let my roommate, lover, friend be late coming home….the later they are, the more tragedies I’ve imagined. Entire movie scenes will play out in my head while waiting. Some aren’t so bad…flat tire, phone call, traffic jam, over slept. Some are horrible..car wreck, arrested, dead. Some are simply preposterous..alien abduction, kidnapping, won the lottery.  Regardless of the severity, the fact is that I will overthink the situation.
I do this with other things, as well. The friend that never checks on me, but wants my attention and accolades? They don’t love me anymore and I’m worth nothing more to them than another audience member. The friend that never IMs me first, but claims they are an introvert and advertises the fact that they’re an introvert all over social media on a constant basis? They’ve outgrown me or found me annoying or simply want to be chased and I’m not worth the effort of meeting half way. The friend that is crazy in love for the first time in forever that’s suddenly lost in a world of romance with her new love? She’s found someone better to spend her time with and no longer needs me.
Mind you, its not always negative thoughts. I can overthink lots of things. The girl that constantly comments strangely on my Facebook posts? She wants me and she wants me bad! The girl that messages me whenever she’s sad, but never when she’s happy? She needs my corny jokes to cheer her up, because I’m the one person not trying solve her problems or fix her.
Please know that I am fully aware that all of the scenarios I’ve listed as examples usually have absolutely nothing at all to do with me. I know the world does not revolve around me and I know that none of us are perfect. I am genuinely happy to my core when I see others happy. There are few things in this world that I’d like more than to see everyone I know and love to find true happiness. Its just that sometimes when I’m alone, these are the types of thoughts I have and if you’ve ever read my blog before you probably know that I’m about as certifiable as they come. You either relate or you don’t.
There are plenty of times that I’m not fucking with myself, especially when I’m doing something creative. And lets be fair, we’ll always be our own worst critics, but every once in a while I do something I’m so proud of that I surprise myself and its these moments that are the clearest most fuckfree moments there are…and yes, I made up a word…fuckfree. So, here’s me wishing you a fuckfree day and if you’ve got a real problem with my language, I do apologize for offending you. However, I do hope that it takes more than a four letter word to offend someone looking at a blog post featuring a mostly naked avatar. ❤

Metro

Life has a funny way of bringing you full circle, even in Second Life. It was around this time last year that I won early access to a Pandora Box of Dreams sim. That particular dream was an amazing tropical oasis that delighted me to no end. I took so many pictures and it was such an honor to get that early access. I think I stayed there almost the whole day.
Well, just two days ago, I won early access to the latest dream from Mizaki and Lokhe. This sim will not open to the public until September 16th, so I’m not going to spoil it for you by showing you everything, but let me just say this…taking photos there is a must and there’s endless inspiration. My first picture tease is this one and I’m tying it to a song that’s been dancing in my head since I first landed at the new sim. I’m sure smart readers like yourself will figure it out, but you won’t believe it until you see it.
metro

This is one of those random late night posts, so the stuff on my mind is not really blog worthy or appropriate…not like that you pervs…okay, maybe a little, shush! Anyway, I’m just going to dive right into the details and get my butt to bed.
Its Labor Day weekend here, in the U.S., so stay safe, regardless of where you live, but especially to those out celebrating the holidays. ♥

Royals

“We don’t care, we’re driving Cadillacs in our dreams.” Lordes’ Royals

One of the many luxuries I enjoy in Second Life is the ability to change my address in a matter of minutes and redecorating my home in a matter of hours or days. I can live as luxurious or as humble as my mood determines. I’m not rich in real life and I’ve never been one of those that pursued the rich life. I remember when I was younger, there was a rather wealthy man interested in me and my mother was encouraging me to date him. Well, that was her first mistake, what 20 year old is going to date the man her mother wants for her? Not this one. More importantly, I just wasn’t attracted to him physically or mentally, certainly not emotionally.
royals
Anyway, the real point of this post is that in Second Life we can be royals if we want to and there’s never been a better time to pursue that luxurious lifestyle, because coming up on September 1st The Arcade is back! Let the Gacha Games commence!
That means tons of fantastic & fun finds like the very posh Ramses Collection from Fancy Decor. This set includes 19 items, with three Rares! THREE! That means your odds are pretty favorable, yeah? If that’s not fantastic enough, the two chairs and sofa in this set? Yeah, they come with a color hud, which allows your four options. I’ve shown you the purple, but there’s a blue, a green, and silverish gray.
So, start saving up because this is just the tip of the royal iceberg, Baby! Stay tuned for more goodies from Fancy Decor and the Arcade, because I’m living the fantasy life and loving every minute of it. I hope you will do the same. ♥
