Why yes, there is a bit of a double-meaning to this post. I'm so glad you asked! *coughs* Anyway, so last week I snuck (sneaked? - I literally work in editing and publishing in RL and this word is an actual heated debate topic for some... moving on) I spirited away to New York for… Continue reading 131. How to… take a risk.
Sorry about the gap in blog posts lately, guys. It's been a rough couple weeks. I'm really feeling the purple lately, so I figured I'd have a little bit of fun with it. Have you ever had one of those weeks where all you want is to snuggle up with something soft and have someone… Continue reading 130. How to… give in to those base instincts.
Let's be honest, guys - sometimes, the world is a weird cruel place that likes to kick us when we're down. Sometimes, that just means we're already having a bad day and we break a nail 30 seconds after leaving the salon. Sometimes, it's people. People can be the worst. And sometimes, we try something,… Continue reading 129. How to… try something different.
I'm moved... finally. And I have internet. And things are still an absolute mess, and there's boxes everywhere, and things to be put away, and things to be re-arranged, and then probably re-arranged again... but I'm here, and things are finally starting to calm down, and I'm able to breathe again. And... that alone has… Continue reading 128. How to… knock on wood.
I... still feel like crap. It's a combination of stress from the move, fear over some stuff going on in real life, and just general exhaustion. People are so ugly sometimes, and some of them just take and take and take and take... and there are people like me who will give and give and… Continue reading 127. How to… keep the music going.
I get it. I really do. Sometimes, you just need to say what's on your mind. Sometimes, what's on your mind isn't always the nicest thing in the world. We can't all be Mary Poppins all the time... But we can think before we speak and act. We can take a moment to remember how… Continue reading 126. How to… be kind.
I am going to bet that y'all are betting that this post is about to go completely left. Well, get your mind out of the gutter, Susan. It's been a rough couple days. I feel like a broken record with that a lot, but I expect karma will start being really freakin' nice to me… Continue reading 125. How to… appreciate your… assets.
Some days, you just need to chuck it all into the f**k it bucket, take a deep breath, and remind yourself that tomorrow is another day. Today has been one of those days for me, but I'm so thankful for some good friends and family in the real world as well as in Second Life… Continue reading 124. How to… stop and smell the flowers.
Let's be honest here: Sometimes, the biggest, adultiest thing that you're going to be able to do in a day is get yourself out of bed in the morning. And you know what? If that's you today, or if it was you yesterday... if you have a sneaking suspicion that it could be you tomorrow… Continue reading 123. How to… do your best.
So, there I was, innocently minding my own business, when... No. I think by this point any of y'all who give this blog a read probably know better than to think that any story I'm going to tell starts off like that. So, instead of beating around the proverbial bush, why don't we get straight… Continue reading 122. How to… recognize the difference between talking and saying something.
