Thinking Bout You

Yes, I know…another music post, Sady? Really? Yes, cuz its my blog and sometimes that’s where my mind is. Its times like these, photos like these…the music says it so much better than I can. I can only hope you’ll relate, appreciate the tunes, the photo, and above all the gorgeous creations from some incredibly talents designers. As always, lyrics and YouTube link provided below.

Thinking Bout You by Ariana Grande

I’ve been thinkin’ bout you
Yeah, I’ve been missing you
Where the hell are you, oh, when I need you?
I could still hear your voice
I ain’t got no choice
‘Cause I’m here all alone
I know I can’t wait ’til you get home

Oh, I don’t have you here with me
But at least I have the memory
I try to make it through the night
But I can’t control my mind

I’m just thinkin’ bout you
I’m thinkin’ bout you, I’m thinkin’ bout you
I’m just thinkin’ bout you
I’m thinkin’ bout you, I’m thinkin’ bout you

Got these thoughts in my head
Ain’t no way to forget
Got me losing my breath
Nobody got me the way that you did
Had my eyes rolling back
Had me arching my back
Now you love me so good
I wish you would hurry up and come back

Kindergarten Tired

She wasn’t sure how much more she could take or how long she could hang on. The weight of it all was simply too much sometimes. The day had simply consumed her and she was feeling kindergarten tired. You know, when you’re so tired, you’d just lie right down wherever you are and gladly take a nap? Yeah, she was feeling that way, but she had much to do and could only take the time to lace up her amazing new shoes. Naturally while she was bent down to do so she took a little rest on her knee. In the meantime, check out those shoes! *giggles*

Be Still

Be Still

Detached sparks and raining blue beams,
Piercing my head again.
Boundless escapades, expressions and abbreviations,
Unable to escape it, I let it all in.

It’s too early, but my mind won’t be still,
Playing tricks on me.
It’s too late, but my heart won’t be still,
Playing tricks on me.

I’ve changed my mind, I don’t want to sleep,
Distract me with your beautiful mind.
Give me purpose, assign me a position
Let’s run from the hands of time.

Come find me when I hide,
Wake me when I play dead.
Push your way inside,
Shine a light in my head

It’s too late, I can’t think
It’s too early, I think

I’ve changed my mind, I need some sleep
Leave me alone with this war
With my battle, my current situation
That’s what the pills are for

A Bit of Real Talk

Alright, its been a while since I did one of these, but I’m going to take a minute and get real with some of y’all. If you’re one of my best friends, you can skip this read, cuz you’ve heard it and agreed before. So, lets just dive right in while I’m in the mood. I’m pretty active on Facebook and while I don’t necessarily comment on most of the crap I see, I do try to like the things my close friends post and occasionally random things that make me chuckle or raise my atheist little hands in an amen!
Today we’re talking about designers. Nope, I’m not going to bitch about them, there’s plenty of y’all doing that all over Facebook. I’m here to defend them. As a blogger, blog manager, and working for events, I’ve gotten to know quite a few designers and I’ve been blessed to get really close to a few. Here’s what shoppers need to know. They set their own prices and they have a reason for whatever price they set. So, if you dare to accost a designer and suggest their prices are too high and that you’re doing them a favor by suggesting a lower price, you need to check yourself. You have absolutely no idea the amount of time and energy and money they spend to bring their creations to the grid. They don’t just sign in, wave a magic wand, and provide you with gorgeous creations. If their prices are too high? Well, BooBoo, no one is forcing you to shop there, are they?
Oh, I’m not done! If you have an issue with something you buy…its got a glitch, it doesn’t fit right…don’t you dare IM the designer and attack them. Take the time to think how you would want to be approached. Trust me, what you’re wearing and how it fits is NOT an emergency and you will survive until the situation is sorted. So, just take a minute and breathe, maybe type it up in a notecard and have a friend give it a read to make sure you don’t come off sounding like a little bitch, because c’mon…these designers aren’t major corporations with warehouses and thousands of employees. You’re not talking to some random person in a call center that might not give a shit about your complaint. Even if you’re having to go through a CSR vs the designer themselves, treat them with the same respect you want shown to you as a customer. Its not nearly as hard to be polite as some of you make it out to be. Here’s a suggestion, start your note with a compliment and end it with one, too. Remind that designer why you bought their item in the first place…uhm, you liked it and had to have it, right? Sometimes you will be disappointed, but if you didn’t try a demo first, that’s on you, Boo!
Just be nice, okay? Cuz these designers work hard and if you’re seeing them in events, you can bet your ass they are dealing with all sorts of deadlines and rules that they didn’t set for themselves. Oh and stop using those huds to get into events, did you know they actually cause drastic lag to the land where the event is located? Its dreadful. C’mon, you can do it the old fashioned way or simply wait…oh and leave your pets and scripted babies at home, too!

Between the Lines

“Everything good, I deem too good to be true
Everything else is just a bore
Everything I have to look forward to
Has a pretty painful and very imposing before”
~Fiona Apple O’Sailor

I’ve been battling a lot of personal demons the last year and a half. Its been a helluva journey, not always good, not always bad, but one thing is for sure, none of it was easy. Not even the good times were easy, because I find most good things in my life too good to be true. I suppose I’m not so different from most people I know in that we’ve all had our share of trials and tribulations, particularly the last few years.I’m pretty sure its this commonalities of these journeys that have bonded me with a close knit of amazing and beautiful women.

do-you-see-what-i-see1

Much like most people, I am as confused by betrayal as I am hurt. Without some explanation, I’m left to read between the lines…to overthink….to battle my inner demons. I do my best to put on a mask of happiness, but my darkness often seeps through and I don’t always want to fight. As my friend Psyche says, “I like to cuddle my demons.” There are times that I think its actually healthier to let them out to play than keep them trapped inside where they can cause more damage. They’re as much a part of me as any joy or hope that lives within me. So, from time to time…I set them loose and while this often gets me in trouble…well…so goes life, yeah? Well, so goes my life.

do-you-see-what-i-see_002

My inner demons certainly had fun putting this look together and I’m quite sure you can find a look for your inner demons, too. So, take your demons shopping and let them help you find a wicked look for when they want to come out to the play…*grins*…Psyche and I can’t be the only ones cuddling our demons.
Don’t worry, be mischievous.  😈

Warrior

Before I start getting too far into this blog post, let me explain that I am heavily medicated as I attempt to battle a vicious cold or virus or whatever this insane weather has spawned upon me to make me feel utterly miserable. So, bear with me as I am about to be a tad bit silly…shocking, I know. Alright so here we go down another rabbit hole into the mind of Sadystika Sabretooth.

Today, boys and girls we shall discuss the illustrious keyboard warrior. We’ve all seen them, perhaps even been one once upon a time. However, let us begin by breaking this down…shall we? *giggles*
According to Dictionary.com a warrior is:
noun
1. a person engaged or experienced in warfare; soldier.
2. a person who shows or has shown great vigor, courage, or aggressiveness, as in politics or athletics.
Let’s go another step further and define keyboard warrior…ooh my, our Urban Dictionary sure has a lot to say on the subject! They’ve given four rather long descriptions, I’ll share the first and you can look up the rest for yourselves, but if you ask me its all rather redundant and at this point, you’re probably thinking to yourself, “FFS! Sady we all know what a keyboard warrior is!” I did warn you….Ok, so Urban Dictionary says that a Keyboard Warrior is:
1. A Person who, being unable to express his anger through physical violence (owning to their physical weakness, lack of bravery and/or conviction in real life), instead manifests said emotions through the text-based medium of the internet, usually in the form of aggressive writing that the Keyboard Warrior would not (for reasons previously mentioned) be able to give form to in real life.

So, we’ve all seen them, particularly in SL and even occasionally on Facebook, depending on your circle of friends. I’m rather fortunate at the moment and don’t see this type of thing on FB too often. However, one can not go about reading profiles in SL without running into profile picks of people professing their loyalty to family and friends with violent threats, some of which can be quite graphic in details. Kudos for effort, yeah? At the end of the day, though, what are they really going to do? Get mad? Cuss you out? Try to start rumors? Stir up drama? Odds are they do those things already or they wouldn’t be the type of people do put that crap in their profiles to begin with.
I appreciate that they feel so strongly protective of someone in their lives, but honestly are any of us really frightened by these words? The only thing that frightens me about them is usually the bad grammar and misspelled words. I have to wonder if the people that write that kind of stuff actually believe it when they write it. Do they believe it when they see it written in other people’s profiles and back off? Meh. I don’t believe in virtual warriors.

sacrifices3

I do believe in emotional and mental warriors, those of us that fight with our inner demons daily to get out of bed, to move forward, to do the next right thing. Those are the warriors for me…oh and people like Josh here who put up with all sorts of avatar torture just so I can get the picture I want and make Kobie happy to see some blood and gore from us instead of all the mush. *grins* Thanks, baby, your heart was tasty!
So, the picture was inspired by a combination of items that sorta fell into my lap…*giggles* We’ve got this wicked little Betty Dress from The Annex available at We ❤ Role-Play along with some new horns and ears that E.A. Studios is presenting at Fetish Fair. I could go on and on about the events and the items featured, but you know what do to…GO SHOPPING! Get creative, take pictures, play, have fun, enjoy your SL and don’t let those keyboard warriors phase you…block and mute buttons are your friends. *winks*

Let it Rain

Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby. Langston Hughes

I think that gentle storms are one of Mother Nature’s most beautiful gifts. Replenishing the earth and all its inhabitants. Some of my best and favorite moments happened in the rain and the right rain will bring every one of those beautiufl memories pouring over me as if they happened just yesterday. I’m sure you don’t want to hear about all of them, but I may write about them some day. This isn’t the first time I’ve had a post about rain. Honestly, I don’t have a whole lot to talk about at the moment, because I’ve got so much stress on me in the real world right now…I’m finding it a little difficult to focus.
raining

However, I was perusing  facebook & flickr earlier when I noticed that my friend Joe had posted a new pic and it was gorgeous. Clicking his handy little link led me to a new favorite sim and I could not resist taking a few photos. I had already decided I wanted to blog this look, so finding something to wear? No problem, just a quick change of the hair and I was all set. I finally settled on this particular photo as my favorite, but I can’t wait to go back and take more. I absolutely love the artistic vision that’s gone into this beautiful place and I do hope you’ll go check it out for yourself. Naturally all the details for my outfit are below, as well as the pose and the link. Enjoy!

Waiting Games

Electronics have become the common go to method for passing time. Its evident in waiting rooms around the world as people stare into their phones and tablets. Most of us take them everywhere. Hopefully, we put them down while we drive! I do, so should you, but no lectures today. ☺ I hate to admit how attached I’ve become to my smart phone and other electronics to be honest. The cats and dog have been trained to avoid cords and to use caution when humans are holding their phones. Fortunately, I rarely run into a dead battery, but there have a been a few times that I’ve had to put them all down so they can charge and the waiting game begins.
waiting
Its always when my electronics are temporarily out of reach or commision that I remember all the things I need to do with them or to them. In turn, I’m creating an even bigger need for them, which then makes the waiting all the more agonizing. Those that know me well know that I have no tolerance for boredom. I will always find a way to amuse myself no matter what the situation. I am an only child that spent a great deal of my early childhood in isolation. I have a fantastic imagination and I will find adventures at every turn. I’m sure we all played the “hot lava” or “sharks/gators in the water” games when we were kids, right? Hopping from one piece of furniture to another…taking great care to never touch the floor, while giggling and squealing with delight as we narrowly miss our imaginary doom. Now here we all are in a virtual world playing with virtual clothes and furnishings and still escaping doom! At least escaping it for a while anyway…*giggles*
waiting still
I realize I’m sort of rambling, but that’s how my mind works sometimes. Welcome to the madness! What started this train of thought? I’m glad you asked. Yes, you did ask…this conversation is happening in MY mind and it was there that you asked just that question. Now, hush and let me answer. *grins*
I was putting together the scene above to display the Ramses Collection from Fancy Decor for the September round of The Arcade, which we are all anxiously waiting for…see what I did there? I know I mentioned the set a few days ago and teased you with a sneak peak, but  there are 19 pieces available in this set and each piece is exquisite. In the previous post about the collection I indicated that the chairs and sofa come with a hud that allows you to change the color of the fabric. I showed you a gorgeous purple chair. As I put this room together I knew I had to show you the luxurious silver suede. Isn’t it stunning?
Okay, so why insert myself in a picture about furnishings? Because I’ve been waiting days and days for the dress I’m wearing here and since the post is called Waiting Games, its only right that I show you something else that I waited on, right?
See, what’s happening here is that I’m showing you a way to fill that little void of time between now and when The Arcade actually opens, plus you’re going to want to look your best while shopping, right? Naturally all the details are below…Happy Shopping! ♥

Perfectly Flawed

I’ll be completely honest. I’m the kind of girl that learns most of her life lessons the hardest way possible. I don’t know how many real life musicians I had to date, before I figured out that they were not for me. I tried every drug that came my way, fortunately without the use of needles. I’ve tried a variety of clothing styles. Some of them were definitely not meant for my body type. I’ve tried an endless array of hairstyles, again not all of them fit. I’ve had all types of jobs from restaurants & hotels to medical to office administration. I’ve been friends with people from all walks of life. Thinking I was open minded enough not to judge some of their bizarre lifestyle choices. And before you get your panties twisted, I mean actual lifestyle choices like having pink hair in real life knowing it will limit your job/career options(not that bizarre) or decorating your yard with zombie gnomes (#lifegoal). Even now, I don’t want to list the choices I personally find bizarre, because to each their own. I simply cannot understand or relate to somethings and quite frankly think others are just plain fucked up and wrong (zoophilia.)
perfectly flawed
With that said, one thing I’ve never been good at is saving money. Ever. I can hold someone else’s money and never touch it, but my own? Nope. I’ll spend it everytime and most of the time it isn’t even spent very wisely. Yes, I do worry a little bit about what life will be when I’m older, but I do have some things in order. I have a home that’s paid in full. For now a working car that I love and is also paid in full. If I end up alone, I’ll have a spare bedroom I can rent out. So, I’ve thought about those things, see?
However, who promised that I’d grow old enough for that plan? Who promised me that Linden Labs would survive more than a year after I joined in 2006? Who guaranteed me a life worth living when I’m 60? NO ONE. So, yes, I’ve chosen to live life a bit on the edge. Daring myself to enjoy one moment after the next, however I see fit.
perfectly flawed 2
I do my best not to hurt people along the way, but none of us are perfect and on occasion we will all hurt someone we love. Whether its a seemingly harmless joke wrapped in barbed wire or simply a careless action or God forbid desires that overrule all common sense. What matters is that we learn to forgive, so that we don’t carry those resentments around weighing down our souls. What matters is recognizing what we’ve done and not simply apologizing, but amending our behaviors. What matters is letting go of those that consistently harm us, even if they seem beneficial in other areas of our lives. What matters is genuinely learning to love ourselves, flaws and all.

perfectly flawed 3

What matters is being true to ourselves, because if we can’t be loving, true, and kind to ourselves? We’ll never be able to genuinely offer those attributes to another individual.

Until you can live your life and love it, you have nothing but lies to offer the rest of us.

My life sure isn’t perfect, nor am I, but I know one thing for sure:
I AM PERFECTLY FLAWED!
