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.
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.
Today, as with most days, I am going to overshare just a bit... because that's what I do. So, the first time I was in college, I studied creative writing, and at one point, I realized that it was not possible to take any more fiction classes. I had taken them all. I had exhausted… Continue reading 115. How to… creatively express your frustrations.
You guys have all seen Finding Nemo, right? Remember Dory? "Just keep swimming, just keep swimming. Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming! What do we do? We swim!"

I think so many people use that expression about showing someone's true colors in a negative light, and since I wanted to play a bit in Photoshop today and I also want to add some positive vibes in your afternoon, we're going to flip that script on its head and talk about how wonderful and… Continue reading 93. How to… show your true colors.
Okay, so I did this photo before I left for vacation because I knew I'd run into a deadline while I was away, and I guess I didn't realize when I took this photo where I took it that it would prove to be somewhat... well, special. Look at the text on the sign next… Continue reading 91. How to… survive your vacation.
It's Pride month, guys! *tosses rainbow glitter* Anyway... The last couple months have been eventful, to say the least. In both worlds. I doubt I'll be able to don my rainbow gear and march in real life this year. It looks like a lot of our local events have been cancelled until after the fourth… Continue reading 85. How to… show your pride.
I didn't realize how much I'd been blogging this year until I looked up at that number. I'm proud of myself, guys! And now that I've patted myself on the back... It's been a rough week. I feel like I say that every week, but at the same time, I know that there will come… Continue reading 80. How to… appreciate the past and still look toward the future.
I couldn't help it. I've seen a few of the SL yearbook challenge photos floating around Facebook and Flickr lately, and then Trouble made a smart comment, and well... here we are. I promise there's a point that goes beyond me being a snarky brat, though! See, the other day, I was minding my own… Continue reading 66. How to… embrace the magic.
