April 22:”What comes next, I see a light.”

How’d you spend Earth day? I had the best day! My physical results are the starters of a farmer sunburn (eventual tan), but there’s so much more. Sadly, emotional results are left to interpretation because they’re difficult to quantify. Just believe okay? ūüėČ

Carved into stone ‚ÄúUnwilling to come undone‚ÄĚ.jpg

Nevertheless, I’ll try to explain. Hanging around people with similar goals is fun. It’s easy. My local #ScienceMarchLV¬†was actually a rally, but marches and rallies aren’t just marches and rallies. They’re marathons because the finish line requires endurance.

I'm with her

I may or may not be preaching to the choir, but take it for what it is. My thoughts are my sole responsibility, yet I love to share.

Do you want to know a secret?

Sometimes I can’t sleep. Okay, I know. That secret sucks because it isn’t salacious or juicy. If it helps, my secret may be your secret. When insomnia hits, we may have a lot on our minds. See? You aren’t alone. If you have Pose Fair on your mind, you are definitely not alone. Animations breathe life into our Second Life personas. So…are you ¬†ready?

I am numb

Pose Fair starts Friday, April 14th at 12pm SLT, and it runs till April 29th. I’m giving you a sneak preview into what to expect, especially if you are a fan of WetCat. “Daddy’s Girl” Bear Prop offers 9 single pose options and 6 couple pose options. If you want, change the teddy bear’s coat with 7 choices. “Cyber-Link” WebCam Prop, below, is available in naughty and nice. After all, life fluctuates between PG and R (or XXX in some cases <3).

The world is sleeping

I have to warn tall avatars, though. I’m very short in RL, so I like to go to the extreme opposite in SL. Wetcat Flux used short and curvy shapes when creating “Daddy’s Girl” and “Cyber Link” as she mentions in her note. If you’re a tall avatar too, be prepared to take advantage of the ability to adjust your position. ¬†Don’t worry. It’s easy to adjust!

Now, get some sleep, if you can USA peeps. If you’re on an international time zone, better stay up. After all, Pose Fair 2017 starts at 12 PM SLT! ūüėČ

“Worldly comfort is an illusion.”

Dear sister:

I hate to break it to you, but there is usually a bigger picture. It goes beyond he said she said scenarios too. It’s literally opening up one’s perspective and it ain’t always fun.

Things are not what they seem to be

Trust me. If things seem wrong or dangerous, they probably are. Broaden your scope.

The first appearance deceives many

Once you broaden your scope, you’ll see the bullshit for what it is because “worldly comfort is an illusion” (Mirabai) in your particular case. Now once you do, it’s your turn.

And I leave behind this hurricane of fucking lies

It’s your turn to walk away from what deceived you in the first place. Emotional wars are exhausting, and sadly so many, including me, fight for the wrong reasons. You probably won’t read this. One, you don’t have a blog and two, you probably forgot¬†about my grown up virtual Barbie doll games/online journal. If you do, know I love you and I will be there when and if you need help walking away.

Love Always,

Your Sister

Out of body. Out of mind.

Spring is my favorite season. Though, I could do without the wind. It’s been said when March rolls in like a lion, it goes out like a lamb, but in Las Vegas, they like to keep us on our toes. I shouldn’t complain. Compared to other states, NV’s weather may be¬†perfection.

out-of-body-out-of-mind

Have you been to Designer Showcase‘s March Round? It also rolls in for bang each month. March brought in a brand new build along with new items. PurpleMoon Creations‘ Amberly Dress is one of those items. It’s almost like a make your own adventure story. Remember those? If you don’t, it’s easy. You make choices and find out the consequences. In this case, ¬†the decisions won’t get you in trouble.

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!

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.

mrs-robinson

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.

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

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!
