FOMO is real. And for those of you who don't know what that is... Well, today, you're about to get a little lesson. FOMO or Fear of Missing Out is exactly what it sounds like. And it's just as alive in Second Life as it is in the real world - perhaps even more so… Continue reading 150. Pro-tip: Don’t just sit around and wait…
Trying new things often means that you run the risk of failing. Not everything can be a success all the time... and that's okay. If we were all perfect all of the time, we'd be boring as hell. And without failure, we wouldn't have some of the wonderful and happy little accidents that we do… Continue reading 149. Helmet, knee, and elbow pads not required (unless you’re one of those people who thinks the Golden Rule shouldn’t apply to you, in which case, we need to talk…)
Sometimes, I feel like... like I must have missed something important somewhere along the line. I'm not sure where, and perhaps one day I'll be able to figure it out, but for now, I just sit back, and I watch. Every day, I see people in both RL and SL putting themselves in these horrible… Continue reading 143. I Shouldn’t Have to Tell You to Love Yourself First…
I am utterly and completely exhausted. I think most of us can say that on any given day, though. And perhaps even more so this year. 2020 has been the year of just about everything. Natural disasters, not-so-natural disasters, disease, social distancing, murder hornets, and more... We all have a lot on our plates. A… Continue reading 141. The case for kindness (remember – there’s a person behind that avatar!)
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 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.
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.
You'll hear, "the only way to go is up" a lot in both worlds. It's meant to be lovely and encouraging and get you through the rough times. And let's be honest, guys: we have those in both worlds. As much as some of us like to say it's only a game, we get invested… Continue reading 119. How to… survive the fall.
#sorrynotsorry for today's photo guys. This song has been stuck in my head for days... so much so that I have looked up the sheet music so that I can learn it on the piano I'll be getting for my birthday since my cousin's didn't make it through the fire in my aunt's house. Everyone… Continue reading 117. How to… stay the course.
