Three C’s, Plus One More

The 3 C’s of Life: Choices, Chances, Changes. You must make a choice to take a chance or your life will never change.

I was checking blogs the other day and one of the bloggers I manage, Luane Meo, had used this quote in her photo. She didn’t elaborate or anything. She simply used to quote. When I approved her post, I told her how much I loved the quote and that I’d probably borrow it for my own blog. However, to be fair, I’d love for you to check out her photo and give it a fav as I had not heard this quote before. I can’t even find where it originated, but I did find on several sites across the world wide web.

I love this quote for so many reasons, but mainly because it can actually be applied to just about any situation. From the simplest of decisions to the most difficult. Thinking about a new hairstyle? Make the choice to take the chance to make that change. It’s just hair, it’ll grow back. Afraid of love, but feeling lonely? Make the choice to be open to taking the chance or stay lonely, right? It’s just one of those quotes that I think can really be a life changer if you apply it correctly. I don’t suggest you use it as justification to hurt someone, but to better your own life.

Of course, my favorite C word is one that seems to offend an awful lot of people, but it’s one that I identify with. I’ll never truly understand why people allow a word so much power over them. Why they allow a simple word to offend them, anger them, or make them cringe. That’s a topic for another post, though, isn’t it?

Super Useful Info

So, from time to time, I see people on Facebook and Flickr asking a pretty consistent set of questions. If I was establishing some sort of customer service or website, I suppose I’d say FAQs. Yeah, that’s actually pretty accurate, because that’s exactly what they are: frequently asked questions. First let me say, I do not believe in anyway that I’m truly providing new information to anyone that even reads my blog. However, I thought that since I keep seeing these same questions…and I just so happen to know some answers, that perhaps I could give one page to find them all quickly and simply. *laughs* You see, I’ve got a lot of information floating around in this crazy head of mine and even I can’t remember shit without asking. I could blame age or drugs, but less face it…we’re all human. So, I’m just gonna jump right in. You can click directly on the logos to go the pages listed.

Wondering what events are going on right now that you might not know about?
Go to Seraphim. That is also your goto page for some of the biggest and most popular monthly events like FaMESHed, UBER, Collabor88, Shiny Shabby, Kustom9, N21, Cosmo, ON9….you get the point. There are tons of events going on at all times. You’d actually be surprised at what you might find at some of the smaller, more obscure events. I’m not going to give examples of those. LOL. The bigger the event, the easier they are to find, but Seraphim covers a ton of stuff. Explore the site sometime. It might surprise you, plus its fun to see what the quotes at the top of the pages will change to. *grins*
So…. Seraphim …goto for shopping events.

Do you miss shopping at the mainstores? Sick of the lag or battle to get into a big event, but you really want to shop? Don’t care for the latest theme at your favorite event? Wish there was a way to know which stores are having sales, new group gifts, and/or new releases in the store? Go to MAINSTORE SL.  This is a page full of amazing finds and you’ll be amazed at the number of great items being released in the mainstores!

I Can Not Find the Words

It’s funny. I have a few friends that say to me, “I don’t know how you always come up with ideas for pictures and something to write about on your blog.” The pictures are no problem. I’m a very visual person, but the words fail me often and I think its obvious. I do so many posts that are barely anything written or simply a song link with lyrics. Today is one of those days, that I simply cannot find the words. However, since the picture makes me look like I’m seeking something off in the distance, being unable to find the words actually kinda fits. *laughs* So, there ya have it….I can not find the words.

To AraCakes with Love

I grew up listening to my mom telling stories about hanging out at the soda fountain at the pharmacy after school. The closest thing I had to that was my last two years of high school, we’d all park at Corner Grocery, which was really a Texaco station, get drunk and dance in the gravel parking lot. The owners were super cool and didn’t mind us being there as we bought drinks, snacks, cigarettes, and occasionally talked someone into buying us alcohol. Plus, the store isn’t likely to get robbed with a group of teens hanging out next to it. Those were good times, but I always wondered what it must have been like to sit on a stool at an actual soda fountain. God knows with the heat in my part of the world, I’d love to sit in a sweet shop with a good old fashioned milk shake right about now. We had a really cute little shop for a while called Just Desserts where you’d get a piece of cake the size of your head and pay about $6usd for it, but it was literally too rich for my blood. That’s the problem I find with most American desserts anyway, too sweet. I grew up on European desserts and as decadent as they looked, they were the perfect balance of flavors without being too sweet.
So, anyway, you might be wondering about the title and what that has to do with what I’ve written. Well, I’ll tell you, absolutely nothing. This post is just a little wink to Miss AraCakes, a wonderful and shy friend of mine that is the only one that gets away with calling me Cupcake. I know by writing that you’ll all try it now and I’m warning you, the nickname is reserved for Ara only, so when I ignore you…you’ll know why, cuz you fuckers ain’t gonna steal her special pet name for me! *sticks her tongue out*
