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. ❤

Posting on Sundays

So, Grace has stated that whenever she post photos on Sundays they don’t tend to do that well on Flickr. I wonder if that’s true or if perhaps its the photos she’s choosing for Sundays. In order to prove my point, I figured two naked girls is bound to get some favs and definitely some views. *giggles* We’ll just post it and see if this does the trick, if not, then Grace wins the bet. What did we bet? Oh, that’s for us to know and you to watch our blogs for….*grins*

When It Rains

While I love anything and everything by the band, Garbage. This song has always meant something special to me. You see, I used to write a lot of poetry, almost daily. The problem was that I could never write about happy stuff. Poetry was my outlet for being sad and was there a more emo era than the 90s? I think not. All of my best poems have been based on sadness, pain, or anger. Very few of my poems are happy, loving, or about nature. When I first got married, I was at a loss. I couldn’t write anymore, but it seems that the past few years have been so rough and some of the options I’ve considered as of late…Well, let’s just say that when I confessed a few to friends they became quite worried. For now, I think I’ll throw myself back into writing in my journal, writing poetry, and short stories….and maybe I’ll even start back on a book I started years ago.

Wild Horses

“I have my freedom but I don’t have much time
Faith has been broken tears must be cried
Let’s do some living after we die”
~Rolling Stones “Wild Horses”

I was going to to talk about something super twisted, but this isn’t a donkey, its a precious pony. So, I went with one of my absolute favorite songs….cuz wild girl and precious pony. What??? Don’t look at me like that!

Adulting Is Overrated

To be more childlike, you don’t have to give up being an adult. The fully integrated person is capable of being both an adult and a child simultaneously. Recapture the childlike feelings of wide-eyed excitement, spontaneous appreciation, cutting loose, and being full of awe and wonder at this magnificent universe. ~Wayne Dyer

Spring is in the Air

Spring is everywhere it seems, except in my real life. The temperatures at night are below freezing and I live in North Alabama. I know everyone claims that their area has the wonkiest weather, but I swear I’ve never seen anything like the weather here. Yesterday it was actually sleeting and a few people living at higher elevations saw snow flakes! I’ve had my space heater on all day and I’m still cold. Did Mother Nature lose her calendar? Does she not realize that April is supposed to be chilly in the morning, perfect by afternoon and slightly chilly again at night? Well, at least I can enjoy Spring in SL.
If you live in an area like me, where Mother Nature is clearly smoking crack and not paying attention to the calendar, and you’re desperate for some actual spring weather…well, I’ve got a great solution for you. Head on over to the Spring Flair event and you will forget all about that wonky weather in the real world. You’ll find gorgeous spring dresses like this one from Masoom and sunglasses like these rhinestone studded beauties from Avenge. You can find an endless supply of beautiful butterflies for both your land and your person at FaMESHed, because as usual, Jian has created and amazing butterfly collection, complete with a butterfly feeder (not pictured). Don’t let any gloomy weather you get you down, there’s any kind of weather you want on the grid…you just gotta go find it!

Habits

We all develop habits over time. Some are good, some are not so good. Now you’ll find it commonly said that it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. I always thought something was wrong with me, because this has never worked for me. I’ve had a real issue with forgetting to take my morning medicines. The older you get, the more you have to take. I’m to the point that I’m filling a pill pot each week, just so I know what to take and when. I had a friend reminding me every morning, but even that didn’t always work. Finally, I came up with a system that seems to be working and it did indeed only take a few weeks to establish. I rarely forgot my night meds as the pill pot was on my nightstand. However, I found that if after taking my night meds, I put the pill pot on my desk then I will see and be reminded in the morning. Afterall, that first cup of coffee and that first cigarette of the day go perfectly with my morning computer routine.
As for the 21 days? Well, I found an interesting article that has made me feel much better about my inability to establish new and healthy habits in the course of 21 days. If you’re interested you can click here: How Long It Takes to Form a New Habit

Losing It

I remember the first time I saw my mom just lose it. She had spent hours making this cake from scratch, but it tilted so bad and kept sliding, no matter what she tried. Next thing I know she’s screaming and attacks the cakes with her claw like hands and cakes went everywhere. The next time I saw her lose it was when we had borrowed a VW Bug from a friend. It had a stick shift (look it up if you’re too young to know) and she hated them, the clutch would stick, too. It was the first time I heard the F word. *gasps* I think the first time I truly lost it was in high school. It was a really bad hair day and I broke my hair brush. Many times, I’ve felt like throwing all my papers in the air when writing…and once upon a time I did all my writing on paper. *giggles* Most days this is what my brain feels like…someone just threw my life in the air and I’m doing my best to grab it all and make some sense of it.

Annie May? Ani Me? Ana Who?

We say, “Oh what a small world” when we run into a friend of a friend, but I think its a great  big world and a there’s a whole lot that I don’t know anything about…like anime. I think its cute. I can appreciate the artistic nature…a genre? I get the appeal, but it has never really kept my attention. That does not mean I can resist the appeal to play dress up! Just so happens, LootBox has quite a few items that are Asian themed this round. So, if you love the stuff, this round was made for you. If you’re like me and just like to play dress up, well….get your butt over there. Have fun!
I just decided to have a little fun of my own in a nifty little Asian market I discovered right outside of chill little club lost in a time warp. Of course, the slurl will be down in the credits.
