My Ride

“Oh, oh
I’m falling so I’m taking my time on my ride
Oh, I’m falling so I’m taking my time on my ride
Taking my time on my ride”
Twenty One Pilots-Ride

So, this song started on repeat in my head the minute I started taking this picture and at first I was like, ok, I’ll give them the lyrics and let it go. Then I listened a few more times. Then I read the lyrics without the music, because I love poetry and I recognized the true depth of the song. While its the chorus that usually sticks with us and plants some lovely ear worms, the meat of this song comes in the too quick to keep up in a sing along portion. Give it a read, think it over, then meet me after the row of stars.

 

“I’d die for you
That’s easy to say
We have a list of people that we would take
A bullet for them
A bullet for you
A bullet for everybody in this room
But I don’t see to see many bullets coming through
See many bullets coming through
Metaphorically I’m the man
But literally I don’t know what I’d do
I’d live for you
And that’s hard to do
Even harder to say
When you know it’s not true
Even harder to write
When you know that tonight
There are people back home which are talking to you
But then you ignore them still
All these questions they’re forming like
Who would you live for?
Who would you die for?
And would you ever kill?”

I hope you have thought it over to yourself, before just skipping to this part. Either way, here’s what I’ve got to say about it…if you’re interested. It’s okay if you’re not, you can scroll on down to the credits. I’ll never know and even if you told me, I’m not going to get butthurt over it. Now that I’ve stalled you enough to make you think one way or the other…let’s jump on down that rabbit hole, shall we?

The whole “die for you” and “take a bullet for you” thing. I can’t know if you’ve ever said it, but I sure have. I can’t know if you have taken a bullet for someone or not, but I haven’t. I have, however, had a gun pulled on me and was more than willing to take that bullet. Being a female, I didn’t have to take the bullet afterall, I just had to take something else while the gun was held to my head. I can say without hesitation that I would be willing to take a bullet for a number of people, but that’s because I’m not afraid to die. I also know that a bullet does not always bring death. So, that answers the next question, as to who I’d die for, because I’d die for quite a number of people if it meant they could keep on living. It’s those same people that I live for, because truth be told if it were just up to me I would have been gone well over a year ago.  I didn’t choose to live for myself. I chose not to bring sorrow and suffering to those I love. Last question, would I ever kill? Yes. If I felt I had no other choice, most definitely. Oddly enough, all of these questions are things I’ve thought about in the past, but I never considered how deeply this song would make think about my past, my present, or my future. Ironically the song points out that the singer has been thinking too much. In turn, the song has caused me to think quite a lot.
After all that heavy thinking, I think I’ll just relax and enjoy what’s left of my ride. Here’s hoping that you can make the most of yours and enjoy it, because as many of us have realized this last week…the ride isn’t as long as we sometimes think it is…*lifts her coffee to the sky*…let’s try to enjoy the ride today as long as it last.

See What I See

Whatever is going on in our lives can really change our perception of what’s going on around us and our reaction can often create a chain that ripples all around us to change the perception of others. Knowing this, why wouldn’t we work harder to be nicer to one another. To look for the positive whenever possible so that we can spread that positive energy from us to everyone else. Its easy to do when we’re feeling good, but the real challenge comes when you’re not feeling so great. You have to adjust your perception. If you practice finding that silver lining long enough, it becomes second nature and no matter how grim a situation you CAN find something around you worth smiling about. I do hope you’ll give it a try and on the rare occasion that the negative wins? Just keep trying, if not the current situation try it with the next. You can do it and so can I…and eventually you’ll see what I see. ♥

Vacation Shopping

Have  you ever really shopped until you dropped? I have. Its the most wonderfully, exhausted feeling and nothing compares to it. Of course, the absolute best time to shop until you drop is while you’re on vacation. While on vacation, you can spread all new pretties out around you in the room without feeling that obligation to find them all a new home…hidden away in closets, boxes, and drawers.  Then you can either order room service and relax as you revel in you treasures…OR…you can get dolled up in some of your new things and show them off at a fancy restaurant. Yes, shopping till you drop is definitely one of my favorite activities when on vacation…ok, well it used to be. My butt is so tired these days…the ideal vacation would be just a relaxing weekend away from all my responsibilities.

You can shop until your lindens drop in SL without too much exhaustion, especially now that Shoetopia is open. Ladies…this is one of those events to end us all. Fellas?

Would You Rather….Wednesday #3

So, I’m going for another Would You Rather Wednesday…this might very well be the last one as I’m not sure anyone other than close friends are even reading my blog. *laughs* I get it, sometimes you just want to look at the pictures, grab the info and keep going. If you’re one of the few that does read my posts and want to see more Would You Rather Wednesdays…let me know. Not a big deal either way, I’m surprised I’ve remembered to keep up with it this long. *laughs* Okay, so here we go…
Would you rather Be in jail for ten years or be in the coma for 20 years? Now, I don’t personally like either of these options, but if forced to choose…well, I’m not sure. I’ve been to jail and while I didn’t love it, I actually did have some fun in there. However, the thought of sleeping for 20 years and waking up to a whole new world. That’s rather exciting! I mean, let’s face it…I don’t sleep well. So, 20yrs of sleep? Sign me up! Yes, I think I’ll go with the coma. Nothing compares to some solid sleep in my opinion.

No one is going to force you to choose when it comes to shopping. The only thing limiting your choices is your bank account and I’m telling you…there are some beautiful creations on the grid just waiting to be on your avatar. So, please, check out the details below…peruse all the blogs out there and find the ideal look for you. As always, Happy Shopping!♥

Fancy Litte Farmgirl

Okay, so not sure if any of you have been over to TaKe Heart recently, but the spooky area at the top of the hill has been converted into a farm! At first I laughed because there’s a long standing joke about Kess and a barn. Stop it, not THAT kind of joke! So, I decided to go visit the farm and take some shots of this outfit, because it reminded me a little bit of a halter top I used to wear in the third grade. Mind you, my halter was no where near this sexy….which would be really weird if it had been, right?
Okay, but see, the reason this trip down memory lane led me to a farm is because that was the year I lived on a farm AND in a castle. You see, my father was in the U.S. Army and he was stationed in Ansbach, Germany. Our first year there, we had to live off the military base and ended up renting a fantastic apartment from these farmers. Now much like the farm at TaKe Heart…this farm hadn’t always been a farm. Many many many years prior to me living there with my family, this farm had been a castle. Not a huge castle, but a relatively medium size I suppose. It was high on a hill. So for a little girl of 7 & 8 years old, it was a farm one day and a castle the next. I have some amazing memories from that year in my life.

chic-moda-christina2

So, I strongly encourage you to visit all of TaKe Heart, as the farm is not the only new addition. The snow has thawed and with it, many changes have taken place. Its a great spot for photos and just hanging out with friends or a special someone. Please be kind when you go to these beautiful photography sims and donate. They make no money for doing what they do and even with donations, they pay far more out of pocket to provide us with such gorgeous places to take photos.

Now…as always there are tons of events…Enchantment, Rewind, Uber, C88, TLC, Crossroads…etc etc…However, its also important that you keep an eye on your favorite stores, because believe it or not..a lot of stores still do Mainstore releases and Chic Moda is one of them. So, if you want this super cute top with options…mhmm, I said it, options! Then, you gotta hit up the mainstore and keep an eye out, because rumor has it that she’s got something very yummy coming our way in the next Bish Box.

Sady and the Dragon?

Join me, won’t you? For another journey down the rabbit hole into what’s otherwise known as Sady’s blogging process…and off we goooooooooo……. Just wave your fingers in front of your face and say, “Dooodliedooh Doodliedooh Doodliedoooh.” Think dream sequence from an old campy film…*nods.*
Alright, soooo…sometimes things just kinda happen to me, see? So, I’m fumbling through folders with ideas swirling around in my head like crazy when suddenly things just start falling into place and before you know it I’ve got this awesome scene with a giant dragon and me decked out in gold. Awesome! So, I grab the shots, do my editing…I’m happy with how it turns out. I slap two shots in my blog. I grab hyperlinks, tags, and categories. Boom, blog is almost ready to go. Now…what am I going to write?
I love fantasy pictures and creating fun scenes. I love movies with dragons but when it comes to actual lore? Nada. Sorry, I’m bone dry on that subject. I know they look super cool and I love them. I have a kissing dragons tattoo that I designed in rl, but I really don’t know any genuine dragon lore. So, naturally I went to Google to expand my knowledge base.
Step one, enter “golden dragon.” Step two, get bombarded with an endless list of Chinese restaurants across the U.S.A. Well, ok…lets try “gold dragon.” Ooooh, goodness, now I’m seeing links for all sorts of sites relating to Dungeons and Dragons, Dragon City, Forgotten Realms, and a few other gaming sites. Okay, this is not the lore I’m looking for. Back to the drawing board. I showed the photo to Josh and he suggested I write a story about Sady and the Dragon, but all I could think was Puff the Magic Dragon…which then made me think of smoking weed and how I really wish I had some right now. Ok, so no rule saying I have to write about dragons, right? So, I look up quotes about gold and the first thing I come across is a quote by Bob Marley and I’m back to wanting to smoke weed! Damnit!

annex-fgc2

Well, I don’t have any weed, but I do have some lindens…so retail therapy here I come…and well, more insane blogs coming your way! Meanwhile, how about you all get out there and discover your own fantasy look, especially those of you that actually know more of the lore. Ha! Tis the season…week…look, there’s fantasy stuff going on at events all over…time to bring some of your dreams to the screen. Whether you role play or just like to dress up in awesome fantasy attire…there’s fantasy loot every where you look right now.

Friday the 13th

“Very superstitious, writing on the wall
Very superstitious, ladders bout’ to fall
Thirteen month old baby, broke the lookin’ glass
Seven years of bad luck, the good things in your past
When you believe in things that you don’t understand
Then you suffer
Superstition ain’t the way”
~Stevie Wonder Superstition

I hadn’t really planned these photos for a Friday the 13th post, else there would be black cats, broken mirrors, and ladders involved. However, it has already been a most interesting and entertaining morning. I’ve never had particularly bad luck on Friday the 13th. One of my favorite people was born on a Friday the 13th. Some of the best moments in my life happened on Friday the 13th. And naturally, one cannot dismiss one of the most iconic horror movies of our time and our leading man Jason Voorhees. So, needless to say, I am excited about today. For me and my dark twisted little mind, it tends to be more of a fun and victorious day rather than something scary and ominous.

mba-uc-dress

I’m simply not a superstitious person, but I have certainly witnessed some crazy superstitions in my lifetime, particularly in the Southern U.S. where I’ve spent the majority of my life. (Don’t judge me!) Of course, the basics are black cats crossing your path, broken mirrors, walking under ladders, seeing the bride in her dress before the wedding, etc. I won’t bother with the debunking or revealing the history of these superstitions, nor will I poke fun at those that truly believe. (Okay, I will be laughing at you, but I won’t tease you…much.)

mba-uc-dress2

Some of the crazier superstitions I’ve been warned of over the course of my life have included, but are not limited to the following:
1. Do not set your purse on the floor or you’ll go broke. (Well, that explains everything!)
2. Never sign financial documents, particularly checks, with red ink. (More impending financial doom!)
3. If you look a dog in the eye while it poops you’ll get a pimple in your eye. (I’m thinking you got too close!)
4. Never let anyone sweep your feet or you’ll be single forever. (This is very popular with restaurant workers.)
5. If your primary hand itches, you’ve got money coming your way. If your other hand itches, you’ll be getting a parcel soon. (This one was popular with my Grandmother. I have to admit, I kinda like this one.)
6. Whatever you’re doing when the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve is what you will be doing the most, the following year. (Looks like I’ll be sleeping most of 2017! WEWT!)
7. A wild bird in your house is a warning that someone you know is about to die.  (Yeah, probably the bird. I have two cats!)
8. If your ears are burning, someone is talking poorly of you. If they’re itching, someone is speaking nicely of you. (This one amuses me. I don’t know why.)

mba-uc-4

What I do know is that I’m a very lucky and sometimes unlucky girl, but I do not believe any of it is associated with superstitions. Whether you’re superstitious or not, I hope that this Friday the 13th you will find lots of great deals during your shopping excursions (cuz we all know you’re gonna shop in SL today) and that any ‘luck’ that finds its way to you is good. May Linden Labs servers stay vigilant, may your internet be strong, and  may you suffer not at the hands of lag! *giggles* Yes, it really is that sort of morning for me.

Happy Friday the 13th!!!  XOXO
Oh and for an added bonus, I’ve been told we’re under a full moon, too!
