Don’t Get Any Closer

What if I let you and you don’t like what you see
‘Cause it’s not what it seems let me tell you why
You have no idea yeah you’ve only seen a piece
But now it’s underneath no I cannot lie
Sometimes I get so frustrated
I’ve tried a million times to say it
It’s so much easier to fake
So trust me
Don’t get any closer
These walls are super high so don’t even try
To get any closer
I’m scared you’re gonna find
All the things I’ve been hiding from you
All the things I’ve been hiding from you
What if you hear the thoughts that haunt me in my sleep
The secrets I don’t speak running through my mind
You have no idea yeah you’ve only seen a piece
But now it’s underneath no I cannot lie
~ Bebe Rexha – Don’t Get Any Closer

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.

And I won’t break your heart-shaped glasses

Whatever It Takes

It’s funny, I asked a friend of mine for help for something to write or at least a song to go with this photo. I have an entire list of songs that I often go to for inspiration, but I rarely go to the list AFTER I’ve taken a photo. He suggested this song and I quickly realized it was one of the songs on my inspiration list. So, my favorite part of the song is quoted below and the song itself can be found below the credits.

“Hypocritical, egotistical
Don’t wanna be the parenthetical, hypothetical
Working onto something that I’m proud of, out of the box
An epoxy to the world and the vision we’ve lost
I’m an apostrophe
I’m just a symbol to remind you that there’s more to see
I’m just a product of the system, a catastrophe
And yet a masterpiece, and yet I’m half-diseased
And when I am deceased
At least I go down to the grave and die happily
Leave the body and my soul to be a part of thee
I do what it takes”

~Imagine Dragons – Whatever It Takes

Steampunk

“Steampunk is…a joyous fantasy of the past, allowing us to revel in a nostalgia for what never was. It is a literary playground for adventure, spectacle, drama, escapism and exploration. But most of all it is fun!”
George Mann

I love this description of Steampunk, because it suits us all so well in Second Life, too, doesn’t it? This is a virtual playground full of adventures, exploration, plenty of spectacles, and God knows we’ve got more than our fair share of drama. I think for most of us its a form of escapism, as well as a creative outlet. I don’t have a lot of experience with Steampunk, so I won’t even pretend to know anything about it other than it looks super cool! Its fun to dress up and decorate with various steampunk and industrial styles in SL. I’ve gathered quite a collection over the years and have rarely displayed any of it outside of my home (which I am constantly changing), but when I saw this corset from Elegance Boutique, a steampunk scene immediately began unfolding in my head and this is the result.

I’ve listed everything in the photos and its quite a list. Just know that it was the corset that sent my mind whirling into the Eye of the Storm that is now my little world of Steampunk. As there are soooo many color options available, just imagine what it will inspire you to do. *winks*
