My Ride

“Oh, oh
I’m falling so I’m taking my time on my ride
Oh, I’m falling so I’m taking my time on my ride
Taking my time on my ride”
Twenty One Pilots-Ride

So, this song started on repeat in my head the minute I started taking this picture and at first I was like, ok, I’ll give them the lyrics and let it go. Then I listened a few more times. Then I read the lyrics without the music, because I love poetry and I recognized the true depth of the song. While its the chorus that usually sticks with us and plants some lovely ear worms, the meat of this song comes in the too quick to keep up in a sing along portion. Give it a read, think it over, then meet me after the row of stars.

 

“I’d die for you
That’s easy to say
We have a list of people that we would take
A bullet for them
A bullet for you
A bullet for everybody in this room
But I don’t see to see many bullets coming through
See many bullets coming through
Metaphorically I’m the man
But literally I don’t know what I’d do
I’d live for you
And that’s hard to do
Even harder to say
When you know it’s not true
Even harder to write
When you know that tonight
There are people back home which are talking to you
But then you ignore them still
All these questions they’re forming like
Who would you live for?
Who would you die for?
And would you ever kill?”

I hope you have thought it over to yourself, before just skipping to this part. Either way, here’s what I’ve got to say about it…if you’re interested. It’s okay if you’re not, you can scroll on down to the credits. I’ll never know and even if you told me, I’m not going to get butthurt over it. Now that I’ve stalled you enough to make you think one way or the other…let’s jump on down that rabbit hole, shall we?

The whole “die for you” and “take a bullet for you” thing. I can’t know if you’ve ever said it, but I sure have. I can’t know if you have taken a bullet for someone or not, but I haven’t. I have, however, had a gun pulled on me and was more than willing to take that bullet. Being a female, I didn’t have to take the bullet afterall, I just had to take something else while the gun was held to my head. I can say without hesitation that I would be willing to take a bullet for a number of people, but that’s because I’m not afraid to die. I also know that a bullet does not always bring death. So, that answers the next question, as to who I’d die for, because I’d die for quite a number of people if it meant they could keep on living. It’s those same people that I live for, because truth be told if it were just up to me I would have been gone well over a year ago.  I didn’t choose to live for myself. I chose not to bring sorrow and suffering to those I love. Last question, would I ever kill? Yes. If I felt I had no other choice, most definitely. Oddly enough, all of these questions are things I’ve thought about in the past, but I never considered how deeply this song would make think about my past, my present, or my future. Ironically the song points out that the singer has been thinking too much. In turn, the song has caused me to think quite a lot.
After all that heavy thinking, I think I’ll just relax and enjoy what’s left of my ride. Here’s hoping that you can make the most of yours and enjoy it, because as many of us have realized this last week…the ride isn’t as long as we sometimes think it is…*lifts her coffee to the sky*…let’s try to enjoy the ride today as long as it last.

Let’s Talk

Can you believe she said that? Did that? Can you? I can promise you that you can and you do. We all do. No, we didn’t see it. No, we weren’t part of it even the slightest bit of a friend of a friend way. Of course we won’t repeat it (I like to believe we are all a little better at keeping our mouths shut, but fb tells me otherwise.). I see all sorts of people meddling in other people’s affairs. Now, if you’re not practically family, I think you should probably stay out of it. Afterall, what’s your motive for getting involved? Don’t even try that whole, “If it was me, I’d wanna know” line, cuz lets face it…you’re not him/her and you don’t have a clue what they want and if you’re not 100% proof positive about what’s being said, you should probably take it with a grain of salt, perhaps check the motives of your storyteller and go on about your own business. *nods*
I love how people say they’re all about not getting sucked into drama, but will be the first to spread gossip…thus fueling the drama mills. We can’t avoid ALL drama, but there are some sure fire ways to diminish drama…IF that’s what you really want to do.
Let’s start with the first and most obvious thing. Keep what you hear…keep it all to yourself. C’mon, knowledge is power, so empower yourself and stop running your mouth. Plus, people are a lot more likely to confide in you when you’re not telling everyone’s business. You wanna be trustworthy, dontcha? Of course, you do! So…ZIP THE LIP!
Secondly, stay out of it as much as possible. If you don’t have a dog in the fight, you sure as hell don’t need to go blasting your opinion to everyone that listens. So, back to zipping the lip. Surround yourself with trustworthy people for your gossiping needs, your venting needs. Know that you can trust them with any awful thing you say and that they can trust you. Its simple to get it all out of your system, without getting directly involved and stirring up even more drama, right? Right!
Sooo, today we learned to…ZIP THE LIP!

Okay, I’ll end this here for now…but I retain the right to revisit this topic if you all don’t start spreading some love, damnit! *giggles & blows kisses*

One Year

“Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes
Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Moments so dear
Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes
How do you measure – measure a year?
In daylights – in sunsets
In midnights – in cups of coffee
In inches – in miles
In laughter – in strife”
Rent – Seasons of Love

Today marks one year since my first post to this blog and its been an amazing journey. It started off as me finding a creative outlet that I found therapeutic. I was encouraged and supported by three of the most amazing women I’ve ever known in my 10+ years on the grid. I can’t thank Kess, Tracy, and Grace enough for their continued support. I would not be the woman I am today without them. These are women I hope to never lose touch with and I’d love to think that someday the four of us could redefine the Golden Girls…someday…we’re not THAT old yet…*laughs*

I don’t want to just thank them. I want to thank the readers and the designers who have taken me on a blogger. Not just the ones I currently blog for, but all the designers along the way that believed in me enough to provide me with blogger packs. I appreciate every single person that looks at my blog, whether they read my words or simply like my photos. I am always amazed that people actually want to look at my photos and/or read my words. Today, I am filled with gratitude for all the support and it is because of all this that I still love blogging. I’m growing as a writer and a photographer with each passing day. Thank YOU…yes, you…for reading this, for clicking my links, for supporting me…for liking what I do. I truly hope each and everyone of you has a week filled with love and laughter. ♥

Just a Little Taste

So, Josh and I did a little thing with this pose. We both took a picture and mine is the main one of course, but the second one is by Josh Brian. I am so lucky to have found someone that shares my passion for photography. Not only does he support my endless hours of blogging, but he shoots pictures right along with me. Often times to my dismay, because as I’ve told Josh…I tend to create a scene with a particular view in my head. Then he comes along and shows the whole world how I’m not really even on the chair at all. *laughs* #busted!
So, here’s a little taste of our world together…his and her views. ♥

Just a Little Taste by Josh.png

I want to tell you a little bit about this pose, too, because the very talented (and equally crazy), Tracy Redangel happens to be one of my best friends.  And because she is such a close friend, I know how long and hard she worked on this pose set. Not only did she work on it for weeks (weeks? yes, because..well…SQUIRREL)…she provided three sets in the pack in an effort to cover all the bases. You see…there’s a huge height difference between Josh and I. He’s offered to go shorter for me, but I rather like him the way he is…plus…have you seen him? Talk about a fun tree to climb..*giggles*…anyway, Tracy’s pose store, Gingerfish Poses, is THE pose store to watch. She has years of pose making experience and well…she’s freaking awesome.

Would You Rather….Wednesday #3

So, I’m going for another Would You Rather Wednesday…this might very well be the last one as I’m not sure anyone other than close friends are even reading my blog. *laughs* I get it, sometimes you just want to look at the pictures, grab the info and keep going. If you’re one of the few that does read my posts and want to see more Would You Rather Wednesdays…let me know. Not a big deal either way, I’m surprised I’ve remembered to keep up with it this long. *laughs* Okay, so here we go…
Would you rather Be in jail for ten years or be in the coma for 20 years? Now, I don’t personally like either of these options, but if forced to choose…well, I’m not sure. I’ve been to jail and while I didn’t love it, I actually did have some fun in there. However, the thought of sleeping for 20 years and waking up to a whole new world. That’s rather exciting! I mean, let’s face it…I don’t sleep well. So, 20yrs of sleep? Sign me up! Yes, I think I’ll go with the coma. Nothing compares to some solid sleep in my opinion.

It’s Oh So Quiet

“It’s oh so quiet
Shh shh
It’s oh so still
Shh shh
You’re all alone
Shh shh
And so peaceful until
You fall in love
Zing boom
The sky up above
Zing boom
Is caving in
Wow bam
You’ve never been so nuts about a guy
You want to laugh you want to cry
You cross your heart and hope to die”
Bjork It’s Oh So Quiet

secret3

It’s rather funny to me how relationship can really mark time in our lives…well for those of us that aren’t especially good at relationships anyway. I watch the people who fall in and out of love in SL, every other week and it makes me giggle. However, I kinda get it. For me it takes a little longer than a week or two to fall, much less get over it, but when it does hit me…its usually quite unexpected. I’ve never found love when I’m feeling lonely and go out “looking” to meet someone special. It has never happened that way for me at all. For one thing, I completely suck at flirting. The last time I tried to flirt with a guy I offered him a rape whistle as a joke. *facepalms*

secret2

The song talks about how quiet things are until you fall in love and how suddenly there’s noise and I think the same can be said about my attitude. I’m happier and lighter about things when I’m in love. I’m trouble either way, but who I torment with said trouble varies. Just ask my friends, they questioned the hell out of me when I started falling in love with Josh. “Who are you and what have you done with Sady?” Apparently, I’m all nice and stuff now. *laughs* They just dont’ realize I’m serving up all my trouble to Josh and he’s keeping a tally. Not sure why or what he plans to do with said “bill,” but he’s got quite a list. *snickers*

secret1

So, yeah, two days in a row you’ve seen me in pink. I totally blame Josh for making me all soft…I’ll be back with some hardcore stuff soon…I swear! Meanwhile, get out there and shop to your heart’s content, cuz there’s sooooo much good stuff just waiting to be on your avatar right now!!

Would You Rather…Wednesday

Would You Rather….Wednesday

Would you rather be able to talk with animals or be able to speak all foreign languages? Well, this is a pretty easy one for me, because I don’t really like people that much. *laughs* I mean, I like some people, but I’m not trying to talk to everybody and anybody. I’m a bit of a recluse, but I absolutely adore animals and would love to speak and communicate more effectively with my pets and any other animals that cross my path. Dr. Sady Doolittle at your service! Yes, I rather like the sound of that. I actually wanted to a be a veterinarian until I was in the fourth grade and watched the vet stick a thermometer up my cat’s ass. That was the end of that dream, right there.

animal party1

Just imagine if you could talk to animals, how much more interesting parties would be. Instead nationalities and races, I’d literally have different species and we would dance…and laugh…and laugh…and tell stories…the cat would yawn and tell us how boring we all are, because lets face it..cats are assholes. The sheep would be looking all paranoid knowing I have welsh friends like Rom and Tally. We’d all have to watch the raccoon, because everyone knows he double dips his chips. The music would have to be extra loud…because…well…the wolf thinks he can sing. The goat is especially fun for he laughs at all the worst jokes. If you started off thinking languages, bet you changed your mind now, huh?

animal party3

Alright, so please reply on any social media you find the blog on and let’s see what you’d rather do. Meanwhile, there’s so much goodness to show off in these pictures. I had to multiples to show it all off. I have tons of critters from Jian and all of these are from that amazing store, but don’t think this is all they have, because they have tons more stuff! Check out their mainstore and take some lindens with you, because if you like animals in your SL, you’re going to fall in love!

Oh, I’m not finished…*laughs*..Collabor88 is officially open and as always Cynful has delivered something heavenly! Of course, C88 always has an abundance of goodies and always takes a serious chunk of my lindens! Don’t even get me started on what’s coming tomorrow at ON9…oh hell, I’ve already started! Hair, poses, clothes, furniture…you do not want to miss it! Alright, enough reading…go, go shop to your heart’s content…there’s so much out there just waiting for YOU! ♥
