Let It All Go

I don’t have the strength for words of my own.

BIRDY + RHODES – Let It All Go

I’ve been sleepless at night
‘Cause I don’t know how I feel
I’ve been waiting on you
Just to say something real
There’s a light on the road
And I think you know
Morning is coming
And I have to go
I don’t know why, I don’t know why
We need to break so hard
I don’t know why we break so hard
But if we’re strong enough
To let it in, in, in
We strong enough
To let it go, oho, oho
Let it all go, let it all go
Let it all out now
If I look back to the start now
I know, I see everything true
There’s still a fire in me heart, my darling
But I’m not burning for you
We started it wrong
And I think you know
We waited too long
Now I have to go
I don’t know why, I don’t know why
We need to break so hard
I don’t know why we break so hard
But if we’re strong enough
To let it in, in, in
We strong enough
To let it go, oho, oho
Let it all go, let it all go
Let it all out now
Let it all go, let it all go
Let it all out now
Who says, who says?
Who says, who says?
Who says truth is beauty after all?
And who says love should break us when we fall?
But if we’re strong enough
To let it in, in, in
We strong enough
To let it go, oho, oho
Let it all go, let it all go
Let it all out now
Let it all go, let it all go
Let it all out now
We’re strong enough
To let it go, oho, oho

Just a Quote

“And when at last you find someone to whom you feel you can pour out your soul, you stop in shock at the words you utter— they are so rusty, so ugly, so meaningless and feeble from being kept in the small cramped dark inside you so long.”
― Sylvia PlathThe Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

A Day In The Life

Another topic submitted to my post, “Dangerous Proposition” in which I asked my readers for topics and/or questions. This has really been so much fun, I really wish more people would challenge me as I’m almost to the end of the topics that have been submitted so far. Today, I’m taking on Isabelle Cheren’s request, “Hmmm how about the day in the life of … you. If you could.” I did ask her if she meant SL or RL, as honestly, I think SL might be slightly more interesting. Although, I’m really not sure. So, I’m going to combine the two, I guess. My life gets hectic, but its not really exciting. *laughs*
A typical day, involves me prying my eyelids open far too early, stagger to the bathroom and grumble about my pain. From there, I drag my ass to the kitchen for life saving nectar of the coffee gods. Upon retrieving the nectar, I slip into my grand office and solve the world’s problems! (Ok, my little world…my tee niney lil world)
Then I humbly do my superior blogging stuffs! Publish a blog posts, do the flickr deal, file reports, which leads me to checking reports. As I’m also a blog boss for three amazing stores. (This is my favorite part of the day…*nods*…I’m serious!)
Then there’s all this real world stuff that I gotta do. *scrunches up her nose* Ya know, eat, shit, shower, walk the dog, clean stuff or hide it. *laughs* Then I’m in SL, I check all the notices…answer offline IMs. While I wait for some inspiration for a picture, I will check my emails, read other blogs, peruse Flickr, and search the online sites for a desperately needed job in RL.  Throughout the day, I go back and forth between RL and SL cuz squirrels!!! As I write this, I’m saddened by how boring my life sounds, but I really tried to juice it up with some adjectives. I might seem boring, but I’m fancy! Oddly enough I am NEVER bored! So, my day goes on like that until Josh logs on and then I dive into mushville until he logs out. Eventually I go to bed and TRY to sleep. *laughs* So, there ya go, Isabelle, not sure that’s really what you were hoping for, but I sadly don’t have an exciting daily life.

Deva’s Question

I have to admit I was a bit nervous when I did the post, “Dangerous Proposition.” For one thing, I wasn’t sure if anyone would even read the post, much less comment with a suggestion. While there hasn’t been a great deal of responses, I did get enough to keep me writing a bit longer. Today, I’m going to attempt to answer Deva Westland. She said, “You know… one thing I would ask you, blog wise… is kind of that “What would you say to your younger self” thing. I know you gave excellent advice to new bloggers the other month, but is there anything you have learned about yourself, or SL/ your SL through blogging which has been interesting?”
Leave it to Deva to ask me such a loaded question. The problem with talking to myself in the past is that the younger me wouldn’t listen. She never did. I still don’t. I try to, I promise I do, but I’m a student of Hard Knocks. The most valuable lessons in my life have been learned the hardest way possible. I’ve learned a lot more about photography and a good bit about promoting my blog. I’ve learned to become a blog manager and that I actually love being a blog manager as if not more than blogging itself. I just love seeing how creative people can be and I’m blown away by some of the talent. It really does show when a blogger loves what they do vs a blogger that clearly does blogging for free stuff and attention. That’s about as clear of an answer as I can give, Devalicious. I’m not sure if I did your question justice, but I tried. ♥

Mood swings and Strawberry Jam!

If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you can imagine the title of this blog is a result of the Dangerous Proposition blog that I did last week. I have been trying to do the suggestions in the order that they came in, but with all the pink in this photo…well, I thought it sorta fit the topic.  Grace things she’s going to stump me with this little mix of terms, but oddly enough this instantly made me think of a comfort food. As women, we all know that comfort foods are very important during PMS which produces more mood swings than a 90 yr old bi-polar senile homeless woman. So, I’m going to share a the simplest little recipe for one of the most delicious comfort foods and most of us have these ingredients in our kitchens at any given time. All you need is Ritz crackers, cream cheese, and strawberry jam/preserves/jelly. Three simple ingredients that will change your life! You just put a smidge of cream cheese on the cracker, top it off with a small dollop of jam. Pop that in your mouth and you’ll think you’ve just had a cheesecake bite! I’m telling you, it is amazing. I suggest you just make a little plate of about 5 or 6 of these, because it is way too easy to get carried away eating these right there in the kitchen as you make them.
So, there you have it…mood swings and strawberry jam are actually quite compatible. Feel free to challenge me with more topics. I still have a few more from the original posts, but I have to admit I am loving the challenge…so bring it on!!!

Picture Ideas

I absolutely adore that at least three people offered up questions/topic in response to my post, “Dangerous Proposition.”  This is my final question from Troy, at least for now, and he’s asked, “Where do you get your picture ideas from?”
My ideas come from all sorts of places. Sometimes the clothing inspires me, other times it’s the furniture, or the pose. Nowadays there are backgrounds all over the place and those inspire me, too. There are times, though, that I really struggle for ideas. One thing I find myself doing it perusing the internet for ideas or watching videos on YouTube. Often times, I’m driving down the road or lying in bed half asleep and I’ll get some crazy idea. If I can, I’ll jot it down and try to bring my ideas to life later on. There are often ideas that simply sit around for months as I wait for the right outfit, hair, accessories, or scene to come along. So, to sum up the answer….I get my ideas from squirrels, okay?

No Place For You

It was the end of summer and she had decided to take a walk down to the Charcuterie for some of Peter’s famous sausages. They would be perfect with the apples she had picked that morning. As she walked along the dirt road she came across the most adorable little piglet, she scooped him up just as she approached Peter’s place. The little pig was so cute as she squealed in her face.
She smiled lovingly at her new pet, “I shall call you Wilbur, but you have to promise not to bring home any friends named Charlotte!” As she approached the door for Peter’s it dawned on her that she should take her new pet home first, “This is no place for you, Wilbur! No place at all!”

If The Shoes Fit

I think most women in SL would agree that one of the simplest joys inworld is shoes. I’m not sure that men can actually appreciate this quite the way we do. You see, in SL if the shoes come in our size (Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, etc) then we can pretty much bet they’re going to fit, particularly if they are from a trusted brand. We don’t have to worry about our toes getting cramped, our ankles swelling, or blisters around the heel. Our greatest hurdle with shoes in SL is which of the many pairs should we wear with a particular outfit, or perhaps matching the colors. I only wish it was that simple in RL, but alas its another one of those things I can enjoy in SL…so ladies, if the shoes fit, wear them and wear them with pride and be grateful that we can’t roll our ankles, break heels, or lose our minds trying to walk in platform stilettos.

Tired

It’s been a very long and stressful week, I’m ready to climb into bed with the remote and relax! I’m so tired! My brain is kinda dead at the moment so I don’t have anything super deep to say. So, let me just tell you that I’ve brought together four of my favorite designers in one picture…Truth hair, Cynful outfit, KlubWerK.poses, and Bueno! I hope you all have a fantastic and restful weekend. I’m hoping for one myself, too. ♥
