I can tell you one thing, guys... when you find yourself in a mood, sometimes one of the easiest things to do (especially if you feel you lack a little control over things in the real world) is to come into SL and shake things up a bit. To be clear, this does not mean:… Continue reading 192. How to… shake away the blues.
We'd all be lying to ourselves if we tried to say that the people we meet here don't matter. I know I've hammered this one home a few times, perhaps because it's so important. This is a game, yes. Of course it is. I can guarantee we all don't look like Barbie and Ken, and… Continue reading 148. You can survive anything if you put your mind to it…
Some people need to learn when to say no. Me, actually. I'm one of those people. Lately... and most of the time, if I'm completely honest, I'm burning the candle at both ends. Real life, Second Life... doesn't matter. I think that little switch in my brain - the one that tells me to sit… Continue reading 137. Sometimes when it’s broke, you can’t fix it…
Okay, so I feel like I have not gotten myself properly excited. It's October, y'all. That means: Birthday month! (I take birthday praise in the form of high fives and other such positive nods to my own personal awesomeness) And also... Halloween! It's time for the creepy, the macabre, the scary, the fabulous! This is… Continue reading 133. How to… embrace the darkness.
When we're little, we hear so many stories that start with "Once upon a time..." We hear about princesses locked in tall towers, dragons, and knights on white horses, love at first sight. So many things that make the world seem so wonderful. And we want those things. We want our very own story, and… Continue reading 75. How to… make your mark.
I have been so productive in the last couple days that I'm not even entirely sure what to do with myself. Thus far, most of our stay-at-home has been me in my pjs, wandering around Second Life and lamenting the fact that this entire situation is even happening at all, and the fact that my… Continue reading 65. How to… live your fantasy.
So, I think I took like eight hundred different photos with this outfit from Vinyl before I finally decided on this one. Different poses, solo shots, couples poses. The weird and amazing thing about SL is that you can make something look amazing so many different ways. Sometimes, though, the most fun thing to do… Continue reading 53. How to… use your surroundings to your advantage.
I used to panic really easily. Usually if there was conflict, or if someone I know was upset with me. For the longest time, I thought it was just anxiety getting the best of me. But then I realized that wasn't quite right. I realized that these responses were conditioned because people in my life… Continue reading 49. How to… Rebuild.
Last night was... Last night was really rough. My gran is in the hospital, and it's not looking good for her. It's not the coronavirus. She's already on oxygen, but they found a mass on her lung, and she can't keep anything down. They are concerned that biopsying could kill her. They're supposed to be… Continue reading 47. How to… find something better.
There's this thing I think some people need to learn how to do... myself being one of them. I wouldn't bring this up here if I wasn't guilty of it, too. Here's the thing: We all have things that we are dealing with. We all have stuff in both worlds that we have to combat… Continue reading 36. How to… keep your head above water.
