Sometimes I struggle and other times I rejoice. It’s been a weird year for me which is probably one of the reasons why I have found myself back on Second Life after such an extended break. I wouldn’t have changed that break for anything because I saw myself through tragedy, I learned how to power through the storm when I wanted to give up, and I chased my dreams. It wasn’t always easy and it wasn’t always what I wanted it to be. Many times during that time, and even now, I forget to stop and appreciate the beauty of life and the journey we all take. I think that’s what coming back has helped me with. Amazing beautiful creations like this outfit from Sexy Princess or the amazing Flower Wall from RAMA remind me that one can find beauty everywhere in Second Life and outside of it. So, when life starts to feel overwhelming… and it will… remember the beautiful things in life!
The days when responsibility didn’t get in the way of fun. Before all the heartbreak, hurt feelings, and users ruined all that was innocent. Then again, there are probably plenty of days when I was younger I wouldn’t want to relive. So, maybe all the things that life has thrown my way aren’t so horrible.
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.
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.
I’ve noticed there seems to be a big division in Second Life over “implants.” There are those who consistently wear them, some who can’t wear them big enough, and others who completely despise them. As far as I’m concerned… I like wearing them from time to time. I tend to keep mine on the more reasonable side, but I figure it’s SL so be who and what you want. Plus, Melo likes when I wear them… just don’t tell him that I told you all that 😛
Anyway, for those of you who like to prance around in your “implants” or if you’re like me and you throw them on from time to time then the Boobies Show is for you! I’ve featured a couple of releases for this round so go and check it out. I bet you’ll find all kinds of goodies for your girls.
It’s been a long time since I’ve thought life was all black and white. After that Earth shattering discovery, I began to realize just how much grey area there really was. Though, I also like to inject a little color into my surroundings. How you choose to look at life, whether it’s either good, bad or a mix of both, is up to you. For everything else, there’s always retail therapy. Like hitting the new MNML Expo. Above (details below) you’ll find the items XIAJ is offering for women, but there’s a good mix from 12 other stores including: BSD, Okia, Toro, Illmatic, Zibska, Posesion, SYS, Modern Couture, M.I.A.B., Sabotage, and Drop. So, get on down there and check out one of the newest SL shopping events!
I’m still in my thoughtful mood, but I don’t even think I have words right now. Though, I guess I will say this and it’s more of a reminder to myself. Don’t let someone ruin you, and never doubt who you truly are no matter what anyone says. Always rely on your friends when you need a hand to hold you up. Never let something good pass you by even if it scares you. And take chances because sometimes the risk is worth the pay out.
