209. How to… remember what’s really worth it.

Today is the anniversary of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, Florida, so this post seemed especially fitting for today. When I was a little girl in school, I loved to read. I'd read everything, but I was especially interested in history... and still am today. We would get our little homework assignments to read… Continue reading 209.

202. How to… disconnect.

I admittedly had a nice chuckle while working on this photo last night. There I was, playing around on Second Life and looking for new poses on the marketplace... while editing a photo of my avatar looking around on the marketplace. That's some Inception-level awesomeness, right? But in all seriousness... I took Friday and Monday… Continue reading 202. How to… disconnect.

172. How to… smile at your reflection in the mirror.

It's inevitable. There you are, minding your own business and fawning over the latest release at Salt&Pepper or any number of brands in Second Life that make us question our definitions of wants vs. needs, and it happens: Hi there! Nice avatar! I'm new to this game and could use 278 of those Linden things,… Continue reading 172. How to… smile at your reflection in the mirror.

133. How to… embrace the darkness.

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!

103. How to… see the glass as half-full.

This week has been a wild ride, y'all, and minus the seizures, I'd say pretty good overall in both worlds. I'm prepping for a move in real life, and I was Kevin'd twice this week in SL... Though regrettably, I wasn't able to think of anything snappy to say to him either time. In any… Continue reading 103. How to… see the glass as half-full.

24. How to… move on to better things

So, I was working on something to send Trouble for the feature for Eclipse that he was advertising on Facebook, and I realized something. The person that I'm talking about... She really messed me up. But... But the thing is, I learned so much from that experience. I rose above it. I became a better… Continue reading 24. How to… move on to better things
