I was on my SL Facebook account (yes, I have one) a while back and one of my friends had posted a question about soul mates. The question, I think, was whether or not we believed in them and if we only had one in a lifetime. It reminded me of my favorite quote from Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert:
. . . A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave. . .
In my life, both SL and RL, I’ve had what I’ll refer to as soul mates (notice it’s plural). My longest soul mate is my best friend from college who still puts up with my antics even though we’ve lived thousands of miles apart for almost the past decade. There are those who have come into my life in a romantic sense and even though things didn’t work out, they taught me about myself and still hold a piece of me. Of course, I can’t forget my RL sister who is my “sole sister” because she’s my running buddy and general partner in crime when we’re together.
So, in short… do I believe in soul mates? Sure, there are crazier things in life to believe in. Do I think you ever have just one in a lifetime? No. If you’re lucky then you have several.
It’s 6 p.m. where I am at and this is honestly the first free moment I’ve had all day. In fact, I really don’t have much time now as I leave for the airport in a couple hours. For some reason, things never are calm before traveling. Oh well, it’ll all be worth it. I just need some friggin’ wine. I wonder if they serve refreshments at 6 a.m. in Paris. Hmmm… something to check out when I get there. Ha!
Anyway, I couldn’t leave without posting the new releases from my future prim baby daddy, Truth. He doesn’t know it yet so, we’ll just have to keep that part on the down low. Now, stop staring at my hot pixels and go shop instead 😛
Everyone meet Jaysen. He’s a pile of hot male pixels, no? It’s hard not to notice his pretty blue eyes and his manliness in the form of his beard. But, there is something you should know about Jay. It should be stated that he’s an alt. More specifically, he’s my alt. I usually only break him out for pictures or vendor photos when I can’t find a willing victim… I mean, person… yeah, that’s it. Anyway, I got bored the other day and decided to give him an updated look. Plus, I couldn’t resist showing off this suit that XIAJ is putting out for Avenue’s Autumn/Winter Fashion Week 2013. If you know any of the guys I’ve dated in SL then they can vouch for my being a sucker for a guy in a suit.
For the past few weeks, my SL has been a little bit different to say the least. It’s the first time in a LONG time that I’ve actually been single and just let myself be without someone there… romantically anyway. Though, I have to say that my friends have been awesome and encouraging. They’ve listened to my stories of debauchery and let me know that it’s okay to go a little wild. I don’t know why, but every once in a while I get a pang of guilt. Like talking to all these random people and flirting is wrong. But always being committed to someone will do that to you.
*Sigh* More Truth releases and once again I’m in Heaven. Nirvana. Cloud Nine. Disney World. And every similar description to the happiest place on Earth or universe.
These hairs may be fantastic on their own but… You should know that Truth is now releasing the hairs with HUDS to change the color and any hairbands, hair ties, etc. This is good why? Well, it is great because it cuts down on inventory. And, if you’re like, then you have like 60,000 items and more than half you never wear. Yeah, it’s about time to get on that. But for now, I’ll just drool over my Truth hair 😀
My RL has been a bit chaotic lately. The person in charge where I work left abruptly and somehow everyone has turned to me for everything. Honestly, I didn’t think much of this because she kept me updated on a lot of stuff. I know where files are, what’s in the pipeline, and I had already done some of the work for the upcoming months during Summer. Anyway, I had mentioned what was going on to a long time friend in SL and he mentioned how I always get dumped on professionally. I thought about it, and he’s right. For some reason, when everything goes to H-E-double hockey sticks, I end the filtering system. Though, I will just fluff my ego, and say it’s because I’m amazing and I do well in stressful situations.
Lucky for me there is a way to cheer myself up in SL! The love of my SLife, though he doesn’t know it, recently released some new hair at FaMESHed and The Seasons Story. That’s right… Truth has created new hairstyles and stolen my heart again. *Sigh* It’s probably best he isn’t aware of my love for him because then he may get distracted and I wouldn’t be able to indulge myself in his wonderful hairs. So, when life gets you down… whether it be RL or SL… there is always new hair at Truth.
