Crawling

It’s a song day, because I’m not up to the task about writing how I feel or what I’m going through at the moment. Nor am I feeling some saucy little short story. I want to show you some gorgeous goodies from amazing Second Life creators. I do tend to wear my heart on my sleeve, so I give you a peek into how I’m feeling with a song by one of my all time favorite bands.

Linkin Park – Crawling

Crawling in my skin
These wounds, they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real

There’s something inside me that pulls beneath the surface
Consuming, confusing
This lack of self control I fear is never ending
Controlling
I can’t seem
To find myself again
My walls are closing in
(Without a sense of confidence I’m convinced
That there’s just too much pressure to take)
I’ve felt this way before
So insecure

Crawling in my skin
These wounds, they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real

Discomfort, endlessly has pulled itself upon me
Distracting, reacting
Against my will I stand beside my own reflection
It’s haunting how I can’t seem

To find myself again
My walls are closing in
(Without a sense of confidence I’m convinced
That there’s just too much pressure to take)
I’ve felt this way before
So insecure

Crawling in my skin
These wounds, they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real

Crawling in my skin
These wounds, they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing, confusing what is real

There’s something inside me that pulls beneath the surface
Consuming (confusing what is real)
This lack of self control I fear is never ending
Controlling (confusing what is real)

Exorcism

I thought about writing a short little story for this picture, but I’m too amused seeing Josh dressed up as a priest. The idea that someone could cast out my demons with some water and a cross amuses me just as much. However, the exorcism kit from Fancy Decor is so detailed and amazing that its impossible to ignore. I could not resist putting together a photo and again, putting Josh in a priest costume was way too funny. Pretty sure it burned his avatar, because he couldn’t take it off fast enough once the picture was taken.

My 7 Life Facts #SecondLifeChallenge

My bestie, Kess Crystal, used to tell me about the Strawberry Singh challenges all the time and how much she loved them. I’m not sure why, but I never did them and never even looked into them. However, this morning, I came across this one and thought, “Ya know, I’ve never done it. I should give it a go.” So, here we go…here’s the link to Berry’s blog if you want to read all about it and you should, because this isn’t just for bloggers anymore: #SecondLifeChallenge – My Seven Second Life Facts

“Here are the instructions for the #SecondLifeChallenge this Monday: Share seven facts about your Second Life avatar or your SLife that may or may not be obvious to your readers/everyone.” -Strawberry Singh

So…here we go..
1. My Second Life Fact #1: Sadystika is not my first avatar, but she’s the only one I use. I have several retired/dead avatars which I will not list for personal reasons.
2. My Second Life Fact #2:
I absolutely love to landscape, but only my own land/homes. I tried doing it for money and made quite a bit doing so, but I did not enjoy doing it for other people. I only do it for myself now. I will help my friends from time to time, but I refuse to take on big landscaping projects or jobs anymore.
3. My Second Life Fact #3:
Until VERY recently, I never used photoshop to edit my photos and even now, most of my photos are edited in picmonkey.
4. My Second Life Fact #4:
One of my biggest pet peeves in SL is for someone to IM me with “I’m bored.” Like Berry, I have never been bored in SL and I’ve been on the grid since November 17, 2006. If you’re bored in SL, log out ffs.
5. My Second Life Fact #5:
In the almost 11 yrs, I’ve been in SL, I’ve only been partnered to 8 people and two of them were Tracy & Kess’ alt as jokes. 
6. My Second Life Fact #6:
I have played a child avatar several times over the years and at one point many years ago, Sady was a child avatar.
7: My Second Life Fact #7:
I have never received a random dick pic from a stranger in SL. That is not a challenge, if anyone sends me one, I will share it and your name with my friends as we laugh and critique your not so private member.

Alright, so there you have it….I hope you’re not judging me or thinking less of me, but if you do, I can’t help that. I suppose that’s your problem more than mine. I’d love to see what other people do with this challenge, so if you do it, make sure you share the link on Berry’s blog as I intend to do with mine. A special thanks to Strawberry Singh, because I had absolutely no idea what I was going to write about with this photo and she solved that problem for me. ♥

Witches’ Song

Alcohol has weakened my mind…I can’t think straight, so you get a song today, but its a beautiful song and I’m not sure how well its known…so maybe give it a listen.♥

Marianne Faithfull Witches’ Song

Shall I see you tonight, sister, bathed in magic greet?
Shall we meet on the hilltop where the two roads meet?
We will form the circle, hold our hands and chant
Let the great one know what it is we want
Danger is great joy, dark is bright as fire
Happy is our family, lonely is the ward
Sister, we are waiting on the rock and chain
Fly fast through the airwaves, meet with pride and truth
Danger is great joy, dark is bright as fire
Happy is our family, lonely is the ward
Father, we are waiting for you to appear
Do you feel the panic, can you see the fear?
Mother, we are waiting for you to give consent
If there’s to be a marriage, we need contempt
Danger is great joy, dark is bright as fire
Happy is our family, lonely is the ward

Wicked Web

People are so often thoughtless when dealing with one another online. They forget that there is a real human being with emotions and feelings behind the screen. It’s not just in Second Life, its everywhere. The horrible things people say to celebrities on Twitter. Do people think that simply because they are famous they have no feelings? Would you walk up to them face to face and say those things? I have to wonder when someone suggests that anyone should be impaled or should kill themselves, simply because they disagree with what someone else did or said…how would that person feel if the tables were turned.
Imagine, you’re just living your life the best you can. You’re pursuing your dreams and pushing yourself to be more creative, to try new things, and suddenly you are bombarded with horrendous insults, death threats, and even suggestions of suicide? You’ve not hurt anyone. Seriously, your actions did absolutely no harm to a single soul. You merely made someone uncomfortable or made a change that temporarily inconvenienced someone’s plans. You upset the norm, but no physical, mental, or emotional harm was done AT ALL. Yet, you are buried under an onslaught of cruel and callous insults. How would that make you feel? I wish people would consider these things before tossing about comments and “feedback” filled with wretchedness and hate. Isn’t there enough of that in the world? Must we be so venomous to one another, simply because we’re somewhat anonymous behind a keyboard?
Its a wicked little web we weave when we carelessly seek to hurt people we don’t even know. Whether you believe in karma or not, no one is immune to a taste of their own medicine. Please, in the name of humanity, stop the toxicity, stop the hate.

Sadystika, Mother of Ravens

Okay, so if you don’t watch Game of Thrones this won’t make any sense and it might even be somewhat of a spoiler. So, stop reading, grab the credits and get to shopping. Otherwise, I have amused myself and perhaps some of my GOT fan readers.

So, Daenerys on Game of Thrones has this big long fancy title, right? Daenerys of the House Targaryen, the First of Her Name, The Unburnt, Queen of the Andals, the Rhoynar and the First Men, Queen of Meereen, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Protector of the Realm, Lady Regnant of the Seven Kingdoms, Breaker of Chains and Mother of Dragons. 

When I was taking this picture I thought, “Ohhh, Sadystika Sabretooth, Mother of Ravens, Flirting Failure, Bratty Kitten of Josh, Manager of Blogs, Cunt of Cunts, Sady the Psycho, and Addict of Blogging. This got me to thinking about what some other people’s titles might be….*grins* I decided to go after Sassy, since I’m blogging her outfit. Here we go: Sassy Nitely, Creator of ChicModa, Singer of Songs, Master of Twerking, Tallest of Midgets, Mother of Magnificence and Caller of Bullshit! I think it fits. *giggles* What would yours be?

Scelerophobia

They say you learn something new everyday and for the most part I’d say that’s true for me, but today I learned something really interesting. I’m always fascinated with phobias, because some of them are rather extreme and I just can’t wrap my mind around. Like the fear of mustard. I saw this on some talk show years ago and apparently its not that uncommon, but certainly not run of the mill either! However, today, I found out that Scelerophobia is the fear of criminals! I mean, I don’t know who isn’t a little reluctant to befriend a known criminal, but this is like a legit fear.
People with this phobia usually have some pretty serious security, like multiple locks on their doors, security systems, guard dogs, crazy fences, and more! I’ve never broken into a home or business…that I can remember nor have I ever robbed anyone (shoplifting doesn’t count), but I suppose in some senses, I am or was a criminal. So, clearly, I don’t have this phobia or I’d be afraid of myself. *laughs*

Don’t Tear Me Down

“Don’t tear me down for all I need
Make my heart a better place
Give me something I can believe
Don’t tear me down
You’ve opened the door now, don’t let it close”
~Within Temptation’s All I Need

build-me-up3

For a little over a year now, I have been surrounded by some of the most amazing people that I’ve had the honor to meet in my ten years of Second Life. I will be eternally grateful to each and every one of them for the way they build me up. They’ve helped me to believe in me again for the first time in years. Some of them have been there for the whole ride, but many of them are fairly new to my life. I’ve no idea what I’ve done to deserve such amazing friends and family, yes, family. They build me up instead of tearing me down and I can’t begin to truly express how beautiful that is for me.

build-me-up5

We’ve all taken an emotional beat down at some point or another. We need to stop tearing each other down. Don’t we all beat ourselves up enough already?  Wouldn’t it be a wonderful world if we’d just focus on lifting one another up to showcase our strengths? To help each other stand proud and to realize how truly amazing each and every one of us really are? To remind each other that together we can overcome incredible odds.
Its not as hard as it sounds and even if you don’t believe it at first, if you just keep telling yourself that yours is a life worth living and that YOU are truly incredible…well, its the truth and eventually that truth will set you free…free from the dark clouds and toxicity that’s weighing you down. I am so grateful to all of you…readers, friends, sponsors (for a lack of a better word, sorry), and family. You all make my heart a better place. ❤

So, about the stuff…*grins*…its Uber time again!!! Hands down one of my favorite shopping events, because its got a little of everything from top designers across the grid. Its not too big and its not overwhelmingly laggy. I always tend to go a little crazy. This round will be no exception. This phenomenal little jacket from Bueno is appropriately named, because it will make you feel like a fox! Comes in Fitted, Hourglass, and Physique sizes and I’m wearing the fitted size with my Maitreya body, so give the demo a try and don’t be deterred by the lack of a specific logo. It comes with a hud to change the textures of the tee underneath and yes, there’s the option to hide the tee completely providing just enough coverage to keep you from needing pasties. *winks*
Meanwhile, I encourage you to check out the alpha tribe sim. I have no idea what this place is or what its purpose is..*laughs*…I just think its absolutely incredible. Think ghosts of architecture or 3D blueprints. My picture barely elude to the immensity of the sim and you can rez there to take all the photos you want. Just be nice and pick up after yourself, ok?
Happy thoughts to you all and as always….Happy Shopping! ♥

That Moment When…

You know you possibly spend too much time on the internet when you find yourself thinking in memes. Here’s what I mean…I find myself in precarious situations all the time..RL and SL. In those moments, I often find myself thinking things like, “When you think you might throw up, but you forgot to put a new liner in the trash can and you hope you have some under the sink within reach.” Honestly, we all know that would not work as a meme. It’s not funny. It’s not going to make sense to anyone but me. Yet, I found myself thinking that exact though earlier tonight. Followed by this one, “When you realize you think in memes.”
that-moment2
I wonder if I’ll talk like that if/when I get old and senile. I can’t help but wonder how technology is going to change everything. We don’t hear the age old stories about walking ten miles uphill both ways to school anymore, but don’t we find ourselves thinking things we thought we never would or saying things we thought we never would. Then realizing, “OH MY GOD! I’m turning into my MOTHER!” That thought in and of itself is enough to give me nightmares and is far scarier than any movie I have EVER watched.
that-moment3
Speaking of scary, since it is the season for scary things! When I got ready to take these pictures, I went exploring. Once I stopped being distracted by shiny things that I needed to hunt down and obtain for own overcrowded inventory, I found myself at Ms Penny Peacock aka Hallow Gothly‘s incredible Haunted Silent Peacock Hotel. This place is amazing! Truly a must visit sim for anyone looking for something different, but something dark, ominous, and at moments downright creepy. You see, much like myself, Hallow is constantly finding things she wants to to tweak or alter, so your visit today might be slightly different from you visit tomorrow. While I was there the scene in the barn changed completely! I won’t ruin the surprise by telling you what I discovered, but know that this place is perfect for photos. And if you see a  sweet little serial killer doll aka Lizzy Valentine, be sure to ask her for a tour. *grins*
