Guarantees

There aren’t many guarantees in life, even the stuff sold with “satisfaction guaranteed” can’t really hold true. However, there’s one thing that never fails a woman with large breasts. Tanks tops! Sleep in a tank top or some slinky little nightie with spaghetti straps and you are guaranteed to wake up with one if not both of your titties out.

Stay Sweet

I recently had a conversation with someone about terrible people. She wanted so badly to go on Facebook and rant, just blast the entire group of terrible people she was forced to deal with. I reminded her that this was not a good idea. She agreed, but went on to say how she envied the people that did that. She believed they must be happier people after having gotten that all out. I had to disagree. We’ve all heard about how misery loves company and its true. Sure, its your Facebook wall and you can post anything you want, but when you post tons of negativity, hatred, toxicity, and animosity? Well, you’re spreading that around like Nutella on white bread. It might make you feel good while you’re doing it, but afterwards? Well, you’ve just ruined your diet and your reputation, assuming you had one. I personally have a tendency to unfollow people on Facebook when all they do is bitch and moan. That’s why I don’t see all the drama and whining that other people complain about. I just think its better to have a few good friends that you can confide in, vent to, and count on for both the good and bad. There’s no need to publish every little thing that’s going on in your day, your life, your mind and if you do want to do that and think that people actually want to read it…try your hand at blogging like I have! *giggles* It’s very therapeutic and then you can get it all out of your system, while you stay sweet the rest of the time. *winks*

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*

Being Grateful

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.” ~ Melody Beattie

Once upon a time I kept a gratitude journal to remind myself of things I had to be grateful for every single day. It’s funny how something so simple can change your perspective on everything. At first, I would do this every morning, to ensure a good attitude for the day. After a while, I notice that by the end of the day, I still had complaints. I had physical pain and I do every single day. Something might go wrong, a bad day at work…a bad hair day…cat got sick…fought with my mom, etc. Eventually, I decided it was better for me to write in my gratitude journal at the end of the day, because it made the bad things not so bad. So, that bad day at work? I was grateful to have a job. That bad hair day? Thank goodness it was long enough to pull up. My cat threw up? Well, at least it was nothing serious. I love my cat. Fought with my mom? I’m so glad to still have her in my life. There will always be things to bring us down, but we will also have things to be grateful for, too. If you are reading this, it means you have internet and that’s a luxury, believe it or not. Lots of people don’t even have a home, much less the internet. So, let’s all find some gratitude in our lives and change our perspective on the bad things in our lives. ♥

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.

Coffee and Tunes

There’s just something about coffee and music that go together. Obviously, I’m not the only one that thinks so. Otherwise, live musicians would play at little local coffee shops around the world. Even Starbucks sells CDs these days. For me, the best coffee music are light tunes. Melodic music with nice relaxing feel. Mostly folk music if I’m honest, occasionally jazz. Its a great way to start the day or even restart a day that’s gone awry.

Bookworm

I love books. Not just reading them, but holding them and owning them. I love the smell of a used bookstore, a library, and a new bookstore. Each one has a distinct odor of its own. I have shelves and shelves of books I have yet to read, because…well, I’m on the computer most of the time and I simply hate reading books on a screen. I’ve tried to read on tablets and I did okay with the Kindle for a while, but eventually I just really missed holding the book, using a bookmark, and having strangers ask me about the book I’m reading. No one asks you what you’re reading when you’re staring at a tablet. So, I refuse to buy eBooks anymore. I need to feel the paper between my fingertips. I need to hear the rustling of the pages as I turn them anxiously trying to finish the sentence/paragraph/chapter. There are always going to be books in my bathroom, on my nightstand, and on various shelves throughout my house. Some I’ve read and decided they’re simply too good to part with, while others sit for ages on the shelf waiting for me to finally embrace the story within.

Dear Bloggers

So, about a month or two ago, I got rejected when I applied to blog for a store I love. I jokingly made this dramatic post about feeling rejected. It turned into this huge thing, suddenly there was this outpouring of love and support from my friends and even some people I hardly knew at all.  Now we all just dealt with the Blueberry blogger apps. I don’t think its a secret that I wanted that one equally as much. Guess what? I didn’t get it.  I’m not upset or even sad. Sure, I’m a little disappointed, but its not a big deal. I tried. It didn’t happen. I’m super thrilled for all my friends that did get it, but I certainly did not take the rejection personally. Nor do I take most rejections personally and I’ve had more than my fair share.
Now, here’s where it gets interesting. In just one day I’ve seen bloggers all excited that they got chosen and others ready to throw in the towel and quit blogging because they didn’t get what they want. Some are feeling not good enough. Some are feeling like they should have gotten it and don’t understand why they didn’t. Some are throwing full on fits all over Facebook. Let me just say this to those of you throwing tantrums. Do you think that makes you look good? As a blogger manager, I see you throw tantrums like that and think to myself, “Ugh, that’s not someone I want to work with.” Listen, my best friend is a blogger manager for a store I wanted to blog for and I didn’t even get that! So, seriously just stop it. No one is stopping you from blogging the items from  your favorite stores. Whether you were good enough or not, you’ve got to put on your big girl panties and grow up. Why did you start blogging in the first place? If it was to get free stuff, well, you’re doing it for the wrong reasons and believe me…people can tell if you’re heart’s not in it. As a blogger manager, I recently had to let one of my friends go off a blogging team, because she wasn’t keeping up. I’ve had to send warnings to friends. I’ve received warnings from friends. This is the life of a blogger. You need thick skin, a creative soul, and a blogger’s heart. If you truly have a blogger’s heart, you won’t be able to stop and a rejection isn’t going to slow you down one bit. So, suck it up buttercups…a rejection is nuffin, muffin….you wanna blog? Do it!  Wanna blog a certain store, but can’t afford fatpacks, then try demos, get an idea, then buy the color you want and blog it anyway! Sheesh. Trust this, I will still blog Blueberry and the other store I didn’t get. You know why? Cuz I love their designs and I’m more than willing to buy them!
