Tis the Season

Tis the season for all things Christmas, regardless of your religious beliefs or lack thereof. We are being bombarded with Christmas decor. However, now that Halloween and Thanksgiving have passed, I’m ready for it. I don’t really celebrate it in RL, but I do so love decorating and being festive in SL and there’s no better time than now to grab all the Christmas goodies. Tannenbaum is official open and there’s an abundance of gorgeous items for your home, your yard, and your lovely little mesh bodies. Here’s a sample and be sure to keep watching as there will be lots more posts filled with Tannenbaum goodies coming your way. ♥

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. ♥

One Love

One of the many things I love about SL is the way people rally around one another to show their love and support.  Last night I was surrounded by people that love me as Josh and Grace put together the most amazing surprise birthday party for me. However, this is NOT what this post is about! This post about how the designers and creators have come together to support a fellow creator. I’m going to give you a very well written link that will tell you everything you could want to know about the event and more.

Keep Shining

I’ve always wondered why it is that we remember the hurtful things that people have said about or to us more than the nice things. I understand why we remember the horrible things done to us, because it leaves scars. Yet, we’re told as early as preschool that stick and stones will break out bones, but words will never hurt us. That’s the biggest lie they tell us, isn’t it? Words can hurt like hell. Maybe that’s why we remember it. It may not scar, but it fucking hurts. Sure we remember momentous happy occasions, like the birth of a child, a wedding day, graduations…some of us even remember the minute details of the day we met someone special. However, we’re also more apt to remember the exact day of someone’s death, divorce, losing a job, etc.
I know I’m not the only one that has to be told to keep shining, no matter who tries to dim my light. So, why is that so hard? Why do we thrust ourselves into the pain of what may have been said behind our backs? Why do we put so much stock in the opinions of people who do not really matter all that much to us?
I had a friend once that used to tell me the reason why even straight girls always loved her butch lesbian self, was because she would find something to compliment them about every time she saw them. Imagine if we all did that. If every person we encountered throughout our day received a compliment of some sort. I like you hair. I love that top. Those shoes are cute! What a cute laugh you have! If we all did that to each other, I think it would be a lot easier for all of us to keep shining. So, I challenge you all to compliment at least ten people today and tell me how it goes. If I don’t get too scatter brained, I’ll come and tell you how it went for me.

Secret

One of my all time songs and when I was doing this picture I couldn’t help but play it on repeat. I knew from the jump that this would be a music post. So, here’s the link and lyrics. *smiles* Oh and I know most people know this song from that TV Show Pretty Little Liars, but I’ve never seen it…so check out more songs by these two gorgeous sisters, because they are amazing!

Secret by The Pierces

Got a secret
Can you keep it?
Swear this one you’ll save
Better lock it, in your pocket
Taking this one to the grave
If I show you then I know you
Won’t tell what I said
‘Cause two can keep a secret
If one of them is dead?

Why do you smile
Like you have told a secret
Now you’re telling lies
‘Cause you’re the one to keep it
But no one keeps a secret
No one keeps a secret
Why when we do our darkest deeds
Do we tell?
They burn in our brains
Become a living hell
‘Cause everyone tells
Everyone tells?

Got a secret
Can you keep it?
Swear this one you’ll save
Better lock it, in your pocket
Taking this one to the grave
If I show you then I know you
Won’t tell what I said
‘Cause two can keep a secret
If one of them is dead?

Look into my eyes
Now you’re getting sleepy
Are you hypnotized
By secrets that you’re keeping?
I know what you’re keeping
I know what you’re keeping

Got a secret
Can you keep it?
Swear this one you’ll save
Better lock it, in your pocket
Taking this one to the grave
If I show you then I know you
Won’t tell what I said
‘Cause two can keep a secret
If one of them is dead?

Alison?
Yes, Katherine.
I have something I want to tell you, but
You have to promise to never tell anyone.
I promise
Do you swear on your life?
I swear on my life

You swore you’d never tell?
You swore you’d never tell?

You swore you’d never tell?
You swore you’d never tell?

Got a secret
Can you keep it?
Swear this one you’ll save
Better lock it, in your pocket
Taking this one to the grave
If I show you then I know you
Won’t tell what I said
‘Cause two can keep a secret
If one of them is dead?

Got a secret
Can you keep it?

Yes two can keep a secret
If one of us is Dead

Take a Backseat

Ya know, anyone with a Facebook account whether its RL or SL sees far more than their share of drama, add the aspect of life on the grid and its going to be ten times worse, but here’s the thing. If you don’t want to be caught up in it, then stay out of it. Sure, you can grab some popcorn and watch it all unfold like a bad episode of some Real Housewives of Hell, but don’t you have better things to do with your time? I know I do. Sure, I’ve read stuff on friend’s walls and wondered who is that about….and I’ve had people come running to me with gossip, but do you see me running off at the mouth to anyone outside of the cunts (Kess, Tracy, & Grace)? No, you don’t. You also don’t see the four of us mixed up in everyone’s drama. Sure, we’ve each had a bit of our own here and there, but the more power you give rumors and lies, the stronger they become…the bigger the story gets…the more people get involved. Look, if someone calls you a whore and you’re insulted by it…well, you’re being silly. Either you are a whore or you’re not. If you are, why you mad? They didn’t lie. If you’re not a whore, then why you mad? You gonna be mad if they call you a chair? Are you a chair? Right. So, take a backseat, let the drama llamas drive…and enjoy the scenery and the ride. Let someone else navigate through all that bullshit.

**BTW, before y’all get started…this is not aimed at anyone in particular, its just another day in the second life.**

Hold My Hand

When I saw this pose by Drunk Panda, I knew exactly what I wanted to do and the perfect way to dedicate another post to Josh, because I’m not the best at showing him how much he means to me. He’s always posting these romantic and sexy memes to my page on FB. Sometimes I can’t fight my sarcastic nature and I crack jokes, because the truth is…I’m not used to being loved like this and I never want it to end. I’ve honestly never felt what I feel with him and while I know that nothing last forever…I want this for as long as it can possibly last. I love you, Josh. This song is for you.

Hold My Hand cover (originally by Jess Glynne)

Standing in a crowded room, and I can’t see your face
Put your arms around me, tell me everything’s OK
In my mind, I’m running round a cold and empty space
Just put your arms around me, tell me everything’s OK

Break my bones but you won’t see me fall, oh
The rising tide will rise against them all, oh

Darling, hold my hand
Oh, won’t you hold my hand?
Cause I don’t wanna walk on my own anymore
Won’t you understand? Cause I don’t wanna walk alone
I’m ready for this, there’s no denying
I’m ready for this, you stop me falling
I’m ready for this, I need you all in
I’m ready for this, so darling, hold my hand

Soul is like a melting pot when you’re not next to me
Tell me that you’ve got me and you’re never gonna leave
Tryna find a moment where I can find release
Please tell me that you’ve got me and you’re never gonna leave

Break my bones but you won’t see me fall, oh
The rising tide will rise against them all, oh

Darling, hold my hand
Oh, won’t you hold my hand?
Cause I don’t wanna walk on my own anymore
Won’t you understand? Cause I don’t wanna walk alone
I’m ready for this, there’s no denying
I’m ready for this, you stop me falling
I’m ready for this, I need you all in
I’m ready for this, so darling, hold my hand

Don’t wanna know
That feeling when I’m all alone
So please don’t make me wait, cause I don’t wanna break
No, I don’t wanna fall
When you’re next to me
Can tell I’m not afraid to be
That you don’t make me wait, and never let me break
You never let me fall

Darling, hold my hand
Oh, won’t you hold my hand?
Cause I don’t wanna walk on my own anymore
Won’t you understand? Cause I don’t wanna walk alone
I’m ready for this, there’s no denying
I’m ready for this, you stop me falling
I’m ready for this, I need you all in
I’m ready for this, so darling, hold my hand

Fallen

This post is going to be short and sweet, because sometimes music expresses what I’m feeling more than my own words. So, here’s a song, but this time I’ll let you find the lyrics on your own. I’m just going to quote my favorite part. ♥

“Spend some time with you
I might bend the rules
Cause I’m in love with you
You can see the truth
I will show you soon
Just meet me on the moon”
~Jaden Smith-Fallen

A Better Day

Once upon a time there was a girl that saw nothing but drama on Facebook all day long. She hated seeing people she cared about at each other’s throats and desperately wanted everyone to get along. She watched insults being flung about carelessly and it made her sad. She knew she was powerless against all the hate and anger. She knew that getting involved or tossing in her two cents would only make things worse. Instead, she decided to close the window and spend more time with herself. She’s never understand why people who clearly didn’t like one another would spend so much time and energy spreading hate. She had enough problems and much bigger ones than picking people apart. She was much happier in her little blogger bubble, decorating and playing dress up. She remembered why she had begun to isolate herself and sighed gratefully for the close friends that she had. As she went to bed that night, she burned her sage wand to rid herself of the day’s negativity and sending love out into the world, hoping that today would be a better day not just for her, but for everyone.
