Sick Like Me

I posted a meme yesterday that read, “Do you ever have one of those days, where you just want to get drunk, go bat shit crazy and set the world on fire?” Well, yesterday was that day for me. I’m already bat shit crazy, but I drank an entire bottle of wine on an empty stomach. As I suffered through one of the longest and hardest anxiety attacks I’ve had in quite a while, I fantasized about setting the world on fire, stabbing a few people while I watched them bleed out slowly, finding the Louise to my inner Thelma and going out in a blaze of glory. Instead I fell asleep with a cigarette in my hand while watching women in prison make their life look a lot better than men’s prison.
This morning, I find myself blasting In This Moment and remembering why I love this band so much. Recognizing so much of myself in their lyrics. So, here it is…are you sick like me?

In This Moment – Sick Like Me

Is it sick of me
To need control of you?
Is it sick to make
You beg the way I do?
Is it sick of me
To want you crawling on your knees?
Is it sick to say
I want you biting down on me
Are you sick like me?
Am I beautiful
As I tear you to pieces?
Am I beautiful?
Even at my ugliest, you always say
I’m beautiful
As you tear me to pieces
You are beautiful
Even at your ugliest, I always say
You’re beautiful and sick like me
Is it sick of me
To feed the animal in you?
Is it sick to say
I tease the hunter like I do?
Is it sick of me
To watch the wicked way you thrill?
Is it sick to say
I live to break your will
Are you sick like me?
Am I beautiful
As I tear you to pieces?
Am I beautiful?
Even at my ugliest, you always say
I’m beautiful
As you tear me to pieces
You are beautiful
Even at your ugliest, I always say
You’re beautiful and sick like me
Am I beautiful
As I tear you to pieces?
I am beautiful
Even at my ugliest, you always say
I’m beautiful
As I tear you to pieces
Am I beautiful
Even at my ugliest, you always say
You’re beautiful
As I tear you to pieces?
You are beautiful
Even at you ugliest, I always say
You’re beautiful and sick like me

Tonight @ FMD

If you’re like me, you couldn’t care less about the royal wedding and you’re more concerned about how you’re going to spend your Saturday night. Well, my favorite place to hang out in SL on a Saturday night is at FMD. I know this must come as a huge shock to you all, considering how conservatively I dress…*giggles* So, let me tell you just  a little bit about FMD. I’m not going to pretend to be an expert or any type of authority on the club, but what I do know is that there are loads of beautiful people there. While it is a pay to join group, the owner, Lance Pyara, is kind enough to allow open access on weekends. Every Saturday night is a themed party and you can dress up or down for the said events.
Tonight, the theme is Speakeasy Vintage Fashion and this party starts at 2pm slt and doesn’t stop until midnight. They’ve got as many time zones covered as they can. So, whip up your version of Speakeasy Fashion and head on over to check it out. I personally feel it’s well worth joining, but not everyone can afford to do that. So, regardless of you ability to join…the club is open tonight and ready for the party!! OOOH and did I mention there are prizes sponsored by Cynful, Prey, and United Colors tonight??? Yeah, so get ready to shake those tail feathers and come party with us tonight!
What’s that? Oh, no, I won’t be wearing this tonight, but FMD is a great place to wear those naughty clothes that show your private parts on any other day. Am I partial to this place? You’re damn right. I found my way there through a couple of friends, but I keep going back because I love it so much. So, don’t give me the bored speech, when this is just one of the many fantastic places waiting for you to explore.

Here’s your direct tp to FMD.

Let There Be An End

“I give the fight up: let there be an end, a privacy, an obscure nook for me. I want to be forgotten even by God.” ~ Paracelsus  Robert Browning

Granted I discovered this quote as I watched Anon on Netflix, but the quote struck a nerve on so many levels that I immediately had to find its origin. Upon finding the origin and reading around the quote, I discovered an entirely new meaning to it. I admit that my first thought was about celebrities and how they’ve no privacy whatsoever. Upon watching the film, it developed an entirely new meaning and I do recommend the film. Obviously, I’m no movie critic, but it is a psychological thriller set in the future. A future I hope never comes to be, for I found it to be absolutely dreadful. As if our privacy has not been invaded enough, the premise of this movie suggests that even our mere thoughts are opened to others. Not to mention our memories. You could have no more secrets…ever. Your eyes recording everything you see and do, only for that information to fall into the wrong hands. Trust me, I’ve given no spoilers about the movie. These are just things I thought about in conjunction with the film. About how life would be for the majority of us.
I think this quote relates to Second Life, as well. So many of us have made tragic mistakes or have been so hurt so brutally that we associate that pain with the avatar. How easily we can start anew. I’ve done that a few times in my earlier years in SL, but I’ve also grown from that and have become far too comfortable with my current avatar to ever consider starting again. I’ll own my mistakes and do my best to amend my behavior when I am wrong. I’ve grown to realize that some are too miserable within their own skin to forgive and forget. I let them go and forget them. They may hold onto their resentments and their toxicity for as long as they like, but they will have no hold over me. I cannot control what other do, feel, think, or believe, but for me, let there be an end to the controversy. I shall erase them from my lives and move forward, forgetting their very existence. If our paths shall pass in the future, they are no more than a stranger to me and will be treated as such.

Love is Free

I don’t know about you, but I get real tired of all the hate that people sling around as if its okay. I’m fortunate enough not to take someone else’s misery personally, even when it is literally aimed at me. Here’s the thing though, I worry about the haters sometimes, because that sort of toxicity is so bad for them. It must eat them alive to be so filled with hatred for other people. For me, they are like dirt, I just wash it off and occasionally get mesmerized by the patterns made as it circles it’s way down the drain. Hate costs. It costs the hater more than the hated, but love is free. I can’t afford to waste my energy on hate, so I’ll be over here where the love is free, because this is where my spirit is free.

Sheryl Crow – Love Is Free

One
Two
One, two, three!
Hey, hey!
She got a shack
Floating down the Pontchartrain
With the water rolling in
We gotta swim
Before the levees start to crack
Another day
Another dollar down the drain
You go to town
No one’s around
‘Cause if you drown
There ain’t no hope for coming back
It ain’t no big thing if you lose your faith
They kinda like to keep you in your place
You never know what might be coming your way
Oh everybody
Devil take your money
Money’s got no hold on me
Oh oh everybody’s making love
‘Cause love is free
You go to church
And pray to God for no more rain
A Cadillac
A paper sack
Well hey there Jack
You want some bourbon for the pain
Hey tambourine
Ain’t no rhythm on the street
With the voodoo
What do you do
When the radio just plays on anyway?
Those crazy fingers in your jelly jar
They’ll jack your money
While you sleep in you car
They got the karma
They ain’t getting too far
Oh everybody
Devil take your money
Money’s got no hold on me
Oh oh everybody’s making love
‘Cause love is free
Everybody come together
(Love is free)
Everybody come together
(Love is free)
Everybody come together
(Love is free)
Everybody come together
Yeah
Oh everybody
Devil take your money
Money’s got no hold on me
Oh oh everybody’s making love
‘Cause love is free
Oh everybody
Devil take your money
Money’s got no hold on me
Oh oh everybody’s making love
‘Cause love is free
Love is free
Yeah,
Love is free.

Dear Bloggers…pt 2

Dear Bloggers,

Please stop treating what we do as a competition. It’s not a sport. There’s room for everyone.
Stop stabbing other bloggers in the back or trying to throw them under the bus. It rarely works out the way you hope it does and in the end, karma finds it’s way back to you.
Remember that none of us are perfect. Learn to forgive one another for misunderstandings and work together as a community.
Don’t bad mouth each other in front of their best friends.
Remember who helped you when you first started, know that as much as you run your mouths, so do the people you run and talk to.
Don’t bash a brand or even hint at bashing a brand in a public forum. You’re only making yourself look bad and you’re burning more than one bridge when you do that.
Stop taking everything so personally. The world doesn’t revolve around you.
Don’t be afraid to try new things.
There’s no need to suck up to designers and lie to them about the people that work for them. Designers are not idiots and you can damn well bet they know what they’re doing and who is who on their teams.
Accept feedback for what it is, constructive criticism, remember that it’s not your brand.
And last but not least, if YOU think this post is aimed at you….well, you might want to think about why you think that and just for the record, this isn’t actually aimed at one person specifically. This is just a list of what I thought was common sense behaviors, but apparently isn’t. Not sure why I bother doing these little schpeils, but I suppose I hope its going to make a difference. *shrugs* If you found anything useful, take it and use it. If not, leave it here and forget it. I really just want people to stop wasting their precious time on hate and negativity. So…happy shopping…happy blogging…happy living. ❤

Everywhere I Look

I use songs in my blogs a lot. Sometimes its because I can’t find the words to say what I’m feeling, but some incredible musician has them already in a song. So, I borrow their words and talents to help express myself. Today, I’m going to share a song that means a great deal to me. It reminds me of a special person from my past. He was an amazing individual and loved me like no one else I’ve ever known. We couldn’t make it work, because his ignorance and stupidity drove me insane. I had no patience for it, but at the end of the day being in his arms was home. There was a passion in our relationship that can never be replicated. I destroyed him and now he’s dead. I will never forgive myself for what I did to him.

The song is Something I Can Never Have (still) by Nine Inch Nails.  Mind you, this is the same man that made me hate AC/DC. Though now that he’s gone, for some reason, I tend to be more open to the older songs, especially the ones he played regularly on his electric guitar. Isn’t it strange how people can leave such a mark in our lives? I always thought we’d cross paths again someday, but it never happened. The last time I saw him was a confrontation at a gas station…he cried from the pain….I cried from the regret. I was a different person then. I was reckless and self-centered. Even with all his issues, for he was far from perfect, he did not deserve what I did to him. I will live with that shame for the rest of my life.

RIP JLM♥

Live Free
I still recall the taste of your tears 
Echoing your voice just like the ringing in my ears 
My favorite dreams of you still wash ashore 
Scraping through my head ’till I don’t want to sleep anymore

Snack & Other Terms

So, I recently learned a new term on Facebook. Apparently, women are snacks now. I’m not quite sure how that started or why we’re not a full meal or dessert, but its nice to know that men are thinking about eating us. *grins* Okay, so apparently according to the Urban Dictionary, it can go both ways. I just can’t imagine myself or any girls I’m close to ever referring to a man as a snack.
We’ve all heard the word “Bae” and its on that disturbs me to no end, especially now that I’ve done a minute bit of research. According to the Urban Dictionary (clearly a viable source for information) the word Bae is a Danish word for poop. Considering how many Danes are in SL, I can’t help but wonder how amused they must be when someone refers to their romantic partner as poop.
Turns out that ratchet is a mispronunciation of the word wretched. Between you and me, I like wretched much better. However, apparently this started in Louisiana and I’m guessing it was a Cajun accent that made it sound like ratchet and so it spread to various parts of the world.
I’m learning so much!!! In fact, I discovered a whole list of terms used for women that are not so favorable. Some of them are just hate speech, but you can look for yourself…as it came from the most reputable site of all *snickers* the ever knowing and never wrong, Wikipedia!
I think I’m neither ratchet nor bae, but I suppose one might find me appealing as a snack at least in the photo below

I’ll Wait For You

Skylar Grey – Come Up For Air

I’m no good for you
I’m not what you need
You’ve made it very clear
Though I disagree
Enough to let you go
To let you drift away
‘Cause once you navigate these troubled waters
I believe that someday you’ll return
And I will still be here
When you come up for air
Do you what you gotta do
I’ll wait for you, to come for air
‘Cause this whole wide world
There’s no one else for me
So while you search the seas for answers
I will still be waiting here
Make sure you dive down deep
Because if you do
Even though it takes a thousand lifetimes
My love, I know you’re finally gonna see the truth, and you’ll return
And I will still be here
When you come up for air
Do you what you gotta do
I’ll wait for you, to come for air
And even if this really is the end
I’m sure I’ll be alone until I’m dead
‘Cause no one else will ever quite compare
To them, it wouldn’t be fair
To let you with somebody new
And all I did was think of you
If you’re my Jack then I’m your Rose
And I promise I’ll never ever let go
And I’ll still be here
When you come up for air
Do you what you gotta do
I’ll wait for you, to come for air
To come up for air
Come up for air
Come up for air
To come up for air
To come up for air
Come up for air
Come up for air
To come up for air
I'll Wait For You

Baggage

We all have some sort of emotional baggage. Some are lucky enough to travel light. Some of us have to rent out a storage room to keep up with everything that happens to us. The thing is we definitely need to put it somewhere, otherwise we’re dragging it all around with us all the time and it just weighs us down. We don’t need to carry it around displaying it with pride like, “Oh look at me, I was abused as a kid!” We must learn how to deal with it and once we do, we need to pack it neatly away so that when we revisit it, or these metaphorical boxes in our imaginary closets/storage rooms come crashing down, we can deal with it accordingly. Yes, occasionally it will happen that one or more of those boxes might fall open, but just like photographs in a shoe-box, we need to learn to sift through those memories and realize how far we’ve come. Then shove that crap right back in the box and possibly find a more secure place for it. Then lock it up and guard the key, only offering to open it up and share with people we’ve learned to trust. People we know won’t turn around and use the things they discover like weapons against us down the line.
Maybe I’m waxing too philosophical this morning. Maybe none of that made sense to anyone, but me. Then I again, my blog is my therapy…so what do you expect? *chuckles*
