You guys... it's been a stressful couple of weeks. I'm midway through the process of buying my first house. The inspection is today. It's been a rollercoaster. I know at this point things could still go wrong, but closing is supposed to be September 17th... assuming the inspector today doesn't find a portal to hell… Continue reading 215. How to… keep them from stealing the light in your eyes.

210. How to… accept what you cannot change.
This is my first post this month that doesn't feature some kind of rainbow awesomeness. While I've been living it up in rainbow all month, I also understand that Pride isn't about rainbows. It's about acceptance and love and visibility. It's about freedom, and so many other things apart from what it's been commercialized as.… Continue reading 210. How to… accept what you cannot change.
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. How to… remember what’s really worth it.
207. How to… represent.
I don't do close-ups very often, perhaps because I never feel ready for them - in SL or otherwise. Being ready for and okay with essentially going under a microscope is a heavy thing, and it's something we all grapple with at some point. If you're struggling, if you need someone to talk to, or… Continue reading 207. How to… represent.
206. How to… kick back and relax.
One of the biggest things some of us need to learn when it comes to Second Life is how to take a deep breath. How to use that little X, or the block button when we need it. We build relationships here with other people, we build new and exciting things to play with... and… Continue reading 206. How to… kick back and relax.
205. How to… do a little bit of spring cleaning.
Okay... I'm going to drop a truth-bomb or two in here, so #sorrynotsorry for the upcoming post, but it's that time of year ... just before our nice theoretically relaxing summer, when we're supposed to be doing our spring cleaning. Out with the old, in with the new, war on the dust bunnies, and all… Continue reading 205. How to… do a little bit of spring cleaning.
204. How to… get the most out of those “happy accidents”
For those of you who don't know, the photo-taking process for me usually involves about 50 or so shots of the same pose with different windlights and lighting, the occasional, "hmm" and lots of cursing. Sometimes, I'll even invent new words! Most of the time, the final product you guys see is just the best… Continue reading 204. How to… get the most out of those “happy accidents”
203. How to… accept it.
Last week, I ran a workshop about disability and kink at my home community. I initially did it because admittedly, I was a little salty about some comments that had been made in regards to my health and my ability to theoretically do things. The idea that real life comes first, but I should be… Continue reading 203. How to… accept it.
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.
198. How to… be (unapologetically) comfortable in your own skin.
I have not felt very well the last couple days. It comes in waves, really. I'll feel fine, and then feel like I've been hit by a very large truck. So... it's been interesting. I think it's a combination of things, really. The weather, for one. It's going back and forth like a ping pong… Continue reading 198. How to… be (unapologetically) comfortable in your own skin.
