Retail Therapy

After doing some minimal research on the Googlenets, I discovered that the average cost of one therapy session can range between $75-$200. That’s one hour to tell my problems to a stranger that’s going to turn around and ask me how does that make me feel? Nah, I’ll take my $200 for some shopping, because nothing makes me feel better than some retail therapy. I’ll tell my problems to the beautician, the nail girl, or the bartender like a normal person. *giggles*

Waiting For Paint To Dry

Regardless of whether you’re a DIY or Salon girl, getting your nails done is like waiting for paint to dry. I’m clearly profiling, but in my neck of the woods the best nail shops are run by Asians, mostly Vietnamese or Korean. Y’all know me, I ask questions. I’d rather sound ignorant for asking a question than be ignorant while assuming I know something I don’t. You’d think a salon full of people wouldn’t make you zone out, but when they’re chattering away in their native language and it all just sounds like high pitched noises to you…well, its easy to zone out. Painting your nails at home, you try to get everything situated before you start, because its going to take a while before you can move about freely. You nail polish is unforgiving! This is when I tend to slip down inside myself and get lost in thoughts. If good things are happening in my life, I can revel in my blessings. I can be grateful and wish good things, send love & light to others. It’s like a fairy tale room in my mind. However, if things are messed up or I’m going through a rough time, that’s when my demons come out to play. Its like getting locked in the attic with a room full of creepy dolls, each one whispering a secret in a creepy little doll voice.

Still Learning

“I am still learning.” ~ Michelangelo

I borrowed this quote from a friend of mine’s profile. It is so profound in its simplicity and then when I realized who is credited for saying it, I was instantly humbled. When such a great artist can maintain his humility, I find it ironic when people boast of their greatness. I believe that if we ever stop learning, we stop living. I try to learn at least one new thing a day, even if its just some random useless piece of trivia. I want each day to present me with new information.

Enjoy Yourself

There seems to be an awful lot of talk on Facebook in the SL blogger circles about the do this and the don’t do that. I honestly feel like somethings are basic blogger common sense, but at the end of the day there is only one real answer to the how to blog question. ANY WAY YOU WANT! I joke around a lot saying, “I do what I want.” Yet, the statement is truer than most would believe. I’ve heard people say, “Don’t use bad language in your blog. Its not professional.” Fuck that, its my blog and I’ll damn well write whatever I want. Now, I’m fully aware that some designers would not like to sponsor a blogger like me. That’s fine. I completely understand. So, then the decision falls on me as to which is more important….being true to myself or getting sponsors? For me, the answer is simple. I did not begin blogging with the hopes of obtaining free stuff. I’ve never catered my blog to appeal to a certain audience. My regular readers (all five of them) will tell you that when you click on my blog link there’s absolutely no telling what you will find. However, one thing is for sure. You WILL find links to the items, poses, and places I’ve blogged if at all possible.
I’ve heard that posting lyrics and links to a song is lazy. Ok, well, go write a book for each of your blog posts and leave me to mine. Because on the other side of that coin, I’ve had people thank me for introducing them to music or lyrics they weren’t familiar with before. I’ve heard people say that writing anything is a waste of time. Ah, but guess what? I don’t really write for others as much as I write for myself. You see, I’m easily amused and I also know that ranting can often be good for soul. So, whether I write or share a poem, share a song, write a story, talk about my life, or rant about something that’s been on my mind. I do it for me, first and foremost. I will admit that it sends me over the moon with glee when someone tells me that they enjoyed something in my blog.
So, to my fellow bloggers out there worrying about the “rules of blogging,” remember that the very first rule and really the only one that matters is: Enjoy yourself.

Get My Groove Back

Her divorce was final and she had treated herself to a tropical vacation. She’s read all about how Stella got her groove back by going to Jamaica, now she was ready for an adventure of her own. Having left only the minimal contact information with a trusted friend at home that would only call her if someone died, she stepped out on her own to take a holiday that was simply a break from her life.
It was her first day here and she wanted to just take in the view from the comfort of her tiny balcony. This was a private resort that offered all the amenities she needed and now…well…there was some very pretty eye candy walking around the pool. Oh my, she thought, maybe this is how I’ll get my groove back.

Just Breathe

“Wish I was small
In sunny days
A summer light breeze
Could lead me further”
The White Birch ~ Breathe

Sometimes life delivers me some rather low and sudden blows. Its times like these that I want to either curl up in a ball in the comfort of my bed, wrapped in the familiarity of my blankets, pillows, and dreamless slumber…or I want to run as far from the world as possible…to the edge of nowhere and just feel the comfort of the sun on my skin…a warm breeze caressing my flesh. As beautiful and wonderful as the world of Second Life can be, sometimes even here there is no solace from the harsh dark clouds hovering over me in the real world. Despite the fact that logic tell me, “this is temporary” and “this too shall pass.” Sometimes I cannot help but be swallowed up by the overwhelming desperation swirling like the madness of a tornado in my mind. Try as I may, I cannot always beat my demons with the rational of optimism and logic. Some days its all I can do to just breathe.

Where the Heart Is

“There is nothing more admirable than when two people who see eye to eye keep house as man and wife, confounding their enemies and delighting their friends.”
Homer, The Odyssey

In Second Life, our beautiful and dramatic virtual world, emotions can run just as strong as they do in the real world, sometimes even stronger. When I find myself feeling like I’m home with that one person or that group of people..when I know there’s no place I’d rather be than there…wherever they are…then I know I have found home. When those special people aren’t around. whether is because of computer issues, internet interruptions, or simply real life? I try to venture out into the world and discover new people and new places. Not as replacements or even fillers, but enhancements and possibly even some new “family.” If you read my blog regularly, you know that’s what I’ve been doing lately. If not, you know now.  In venturing out, I made some amazing new friends and nurtured some existing friendships.

home
Yet, there are few joys that compare to sitting and chatting with that special someone. Feeling like I’m actually home for the first time in over a week. I won’t get too very personal here or get all TMI (shut up, Rom). I’ll try not to get too mushy or love-dovey (shut it, Tracy). I can’t help but gush just a little bit about the amazing people in my life, especially the one pictured here with me. Sino and I have gone back and forth from friends to lovers to friends to lovers to almost hating each other, but always loving each other for…well…over a year now. And no matter what, I just know in my heart that he and I will ALWAYS be friends first. We’ve made our friendship our first priority and the foundation on which we build everything else. He came home today, as in back online after being gone FOREVER. Ok, perhaps it was only a week and a half, but even my best friends knew I was going bonkers.  Anyway, he’s home now. I’m happy again and looking forward to introducing him to all my new and wonderful friends…just as soon as I’m done making up for lost time.
Soooo, I’ll see you all next week. I hope you all enjoy your weekend. ❤
