Modern Conflict: “Daddy’s little psycho and Mommy’s little soldier.”

In case you were interested, my own private drama involves a lot of stretching (and fidgeting, twitching, rubbing my face, and playing with locks of my hair). Speaking of private drama…

My own private drama

I’m an adult and then some, but I noticed my parents still view me as a child, so when we talk, I feel like I’m back at home. Some things never die. My dad thinks I’m silly (it’s called liberal nowadays in my dad’s head lol) and my mom believes I’m fighting for the greater good.

Love them both because they are both right. ūüėČ

Probable Cause: “It‚Äôs where my demons hide.”

It’s time for catharsis. Although I should treat my home to a massive and literal spring cleaning, my mind and soul take precedence. Because in order for the literal spring cleaning to work, the actual laborer has to feel like he or she is in the mood.

It's where my demons hide

In this instance, the laborer is me because it’s my journal, but surely I’m not alone? If I’m not, wash all the angst away.

It_s where my demons hide

There may be remnants of psychological ew¬†tomorrow, but every cleanse needs a second day. ¬†Trust me. I do this every season. It doesn’t last all year, but it might for¬†you!

Passion is contagious; “It’d be safer if you ran.”

Even though it’s probably way sexier, I don’t mean romantic passion.¬†I’m talking about what motivates us and I’ve realized I can be kind of bossy when it comes to my idealistic ways. Because I am far from perfection, I should probably steer clear of that anyway.

But…I can’t help but think every one of us can make a small difference and make a mark.

And here’s to you, Mrs. Robinson

You know, I’ve never seen¬†The Graduate, but I heard a remake of “Mrs. Robinson” on my way to work today, and it’s been in my head ever since.¬†I’m not sure what the original songwriters meant when writing the lyrics, but it’s always been a song that made me think of dual personalities, but not in a mentally ill kind of way, if that makes sense. I mean…have you ever said one thing and shown the exact opposite?

and-heres-to-you-mrs-robinson

For instance, I’ve told people two glasses of wine can knock me out. I would never share that I can down an entire bottle and stay awake. Obviously, I am impaired, but I’m still wide awake. Well, I just shared, but I’ll hold my fingers accountable for that.

In many cases, it’s okay to show one face to the public and one face in private. When the two intersect, it can be hypocritical depending on the receiver. Here’s another fun example.¬†My co-worker interviewed several applicants for a position opening.

hide-it-in-the-hiding-place-where-no-one-ever-goes

The candidate was charming, spoke highly of the company, and had many skills.Unfortunately, as in life, there is usually someone better than you (reader rest assured it’s not me), so my co-worker opted to go with someone who had more of the skills she was looking for.

This charming schmoozer with a wide variety of skills replied to the rejection email with¬†ūüĖē. ¬†I’ve never seen that either.¬†Takeaway? We can’t judge a book by its cover because it may be missing crucial pages. C’est la vie.

A poor heart aflame: Don’t wish it away.

Instead, “Live for each second without hesitation.” I tend to revert to timeless classic songs when I try to make sense of life. You know? Songs never let me down. The songs we tend to hold onto or remember in trying times are an unspoken heart around our neck.

but-more-than-ever

Or on our wrists, ears, and sleeves, so I say¬†drown in hearts. Valentine’s Day has passed, but the heart is a symbol of love and life. Mostly life. The brain may have more to do with the emotion we call love, but let’s not go there. Okay? Let’s just drown in hearts. ‚ô•

Speaking of hearts and love, Chop Zuey’s “A Poor Heart Aflame” is a must have for all romantics. It’s a mix and mash to suit any occasion with several heart pendants, silver or gold chains, and pearls. Drive your color choices with the Hud. The matching heart earrings and bracelets complete the love.

Post title is a combination from Bon Iver and Taylor Swift but the majority of my pinched words come from:

Whether it’s 7 or not,”I don’t think through things.”

I tell myself 7 am is the best time to work on important stuff because morning is the start of the new day so it has to be the start of new ideas. I feel consciously energetic in the early hours. The morning cup of coffee is the equivalence of shock therapy.

i-dont-think-through-things

In fact, it’s [A couple… one brown and one black..].

Moolto hunters know what I’m saying. For others, want to know the secret? “A couple… ¬† ¬† one brown and one black..” is actually a hint for Moolto’s hunt “Love is in the Air.” Glitter’s hunt item Peggy is a mesh knitted short dress in an elegant beige color. If you want to see the materials effect, apply the advanced light model. Click¬†here¬†for your lift to Glitter.

Psst. Hunters must wear the www.Moolto.com Group Tag AND wear the Moolto “Magic” Glasses! Glasses can be picked up from any kiosk. The hunt ends on March 1, so don’t miss out!

Existential Reckonings: “I want a meaning from the back of my broken hand.”

I’m actually just in love with Project Bento. Trying to demonstrate expression in SL was one of my biggest (but silent) gripes. It really is all in the face, eyes, and hands. Changing hands to suit the mood used to be high maintenance and unrealistic. Know what I mean?

these-changes-aint-changing-me

See what I mean? The hands are so different. Sunshine is wearing the default Maitreya hands whereas I’m wearing Vista’s Bento hands. They both look natural, but I love how Bento poses read the hands or vice versa. Whichever it is, it works.

Now, if I could only be so animated in IRL. My signature IRL hands IRL are usually clenched. I’m telling you anxiety is a bish!
