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.

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. 😉

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.

Everyone will have their own bulls-eye. Stay steady and go for it k?

I’m writing to you #NastyWoman. After the last and final presidential debate, I felt that spark.  I’ll probably write a long and rambling post about that moment of enlightenment. Apologies in advance.

“Who knows why it’s gotta be this way”

Trying to understand the bigger picture is harder than it seems. In the past, I got so focused, I could only see what was in front of me, so I missed what I needed to see.

Revolution

Okay, I also ignored what I needed to see too lol. The mind can be so convenient at times.

This is what you came for

Right now, my mind is on top of it because I am getting better at seeing the whole picture.

Music is what feelings sound like

And right now, I understand that I was pretty much an idiot when I was younger, so I can’t blame my young employees for making the same mistakes I did. I wish I could save them.

But such is life eh?

Speaking of which…

I used to have an active Second [social] Life. It was loads of fun in the beginning. I call it the SL gloss and that gloss wore out quite some time ago. Teaching was fun. Pretending to be a model was fun too. Isn’t it funny how we can change interests even in our Second Lives?

For instance, now, I log in solely to blog. If my old friends get my autoreply, chances are I really am in Photoshop, or I just don’t have anything to say. Regardless of what I am doing, I let my autoresponse do the talking.
How to be alone

Don’t get me wrong. There are a couple of people I miss chatting to. My old friend Tiff is one. The last time I ‘spoke’ to her, she was choreographing dances, which I think is so fun. You know how I love my animations. Anyway, if I could do that without the actually ‘talking’ to others, I totally would.

I mean, I could choreograph a dance or two and then blog it, but since I only hang out with myself (you’ve met Sunshine and Taco, my real life husband…I took control of his avatar a long time ago), it’s sort of computer intensive lol. I suppose I just wanted to say, if you get my autoresponse, it’s because I’m just here to relax and get away from my real life. Other times, I only have enough charm left at the end of the day for one. 😉

Yeah, I’m sober, sure I’m sane: Still your daughter still the same

If there is any fairy tale character I could really understand, I would have to say it’s Thumbelina. Before I get too deep, it’s due to my size. I swear to my husband that I’m five feet tall and he swears that I’m lying. Okay, so he knows me well but I know how men gauge inches so I thought I was safe! Really, the perfect height for me would be 5′ 4″ so I could wear flats. I can’t complain. Perhaps my mother wished for a tiny little child like Thumbelina’s mother  did?

Were you scared that I might get hurt

In spite of my size, I am the big boss lady at my workplace. I suppose I mastered my everything is okay face because my assistant manager claimed I was her hero due to my ability to handle everything in stride and be pleasant at the same time. Little does she know, but I am far from fine.

I'm losing my mind

She is younger than me, so I’m trying to play the good role model, but sometimes I wonder if it is ever okay to say I don’t give a fuck about your problems because I have my own?  At the same time, I love my life.

And I might be okay. But I'm not fine at all.

It’s really not so bad. Yes, my thoughts are a bit convoluted at times, but that’s the way  I roll and the only way I can fly. ಠ‿↼

It’s gonna be alright…

…because “I shake it off, I shake it off.” This is kind of embarrassing, but I literally shake my head to clear it off thoughts. I never really noticed it, of course, until my hubby pointed it out. Apparently, I also frown in my sleep. Thanks for letting me know husband. Ah, romance (actually, I think it is totally romantic to notice my subconscious moments). 😉

Shake it off.png

The whole point of my post is to point out my jacket, so disregard my ramblings! PurpleMoon Creations has one of the coolest jackets ever available at On9. The Iridescent jacket is materials ready, and I really wasn’t able to notice the real coolness until I logged on using the official SL Viewer. Now, mind you, it may be my graphics card because I am a frequent user of Phoenix and typically see everything I need to and want to.

See the green light in the picture above? It seems materials ready clothing adds the oomph to oh my.

I wore the lights (in my case green and purple) included in the package, but try going outside for a moveable light source to see the effects.
