This week has been rough. I feel like I'm always saying something like that, and sometimes, I find myself wondering when it's going to just stop for a little bit. Sometimes, I bottle it all up because I get tired of having to explain myself, or worse yet, battle that internal struggle of "When is… Continue reading 233. How to… keep it up.
The last couple days, I've had a hell of a time sleeping. The thing is, I think I think the hard part hasn't been dealing with the loss of my friend. In many ways, those of us who knew him also knew this day was coming. He was an amazing man and he'd been fighting… Continue reading 232. How to… reach for the stars.
Last week, I went to a Ceremony of Eternal Bonding in Final Fantasy XIV. Think partnering, but for Second Life. It was for a really good friend of mine that used to be something more. She's found someone amazing, and it's so nice to see her happy. And the whole experience was actually really fun.… Continue reading 231. How to… accept the things you cannot change.
Okay, y'all, so I wasn't dead, but I've been gone for a hot minute, haven't I? The year got off to a bit of a rough start for me. Covid finally got me, and I've been exhausted dealing with that and stuff in real life, so I had to disappear for a little bit and… Continue reading 230. How to… come back from the dead.
So, Christmas with the family was a little more interesting than I care to detail here, but... I do have a story time to share with you all. See, in the process of my move, I mega-busted my keyboard and found out that the warranty was poof. I then spent the last several weeks longingly… Continue reading 228. How to… start the new year off right.
Y'all... there is not enough coffee in the entire state this morning. Last night was my first night in the house dealing with "oh shit" storms. In Nova-land, I categorize storms in three ways: Level 1 - "Oh, meh." - A minor inconvenience. Sugar dissolves in water, after all. Level 2 - "Oh, my!" -… Continue reading 227. How to… wake up.
'Tis the season, y'all. First of all, I know it's been almost a month since I've updated my blog. Sorry I suck. It's been a bit busy in the real world and things have been hectic, to say the least. I've been dealing with doctors and medical stuff and everything in between. And... I close… Continue reading 223. How to… survive the dark stuff.
At some point, y'all are going to have to pry all my Halloween stuff out of my cold, dead fingers. I am loving it. This is my favorite time of year for so many reasons, but in large part because you get to see the darker side of creativity on Second Life. It's fascinating (and… Continue reading 222. How to… vanquish the depression monster.
Oh, my gosh, you guys. If all the stars align and nothing explodes and there is literally nothing else crazy that happens, I close on my first house in like nine days. Nine. Days. My house. A house of my own. With four walls and a roof and a yard. In a neighborhood. With kids… Continue reading 221. How to… see through the darkness.
It's my biiiiiiiiiiiirthday. I will be spending it drinking mass quantities of delicious hot cocoa, singing karaoke into my hair brush, and... trying to survive dinner with my family without mention of politics, the gay agenda, or how things should be exactly the same as they were fifty years ago. I might need a little… Continue reading 220. How to… celebrate you!
