Okay.... so a good time doesn't always have to involve a dress made out of fishnet, but I couldn't help myself, y'all. I am in a mood lately. A good one. Things are looking up and working out and everything wonderful in-between, so I can't complain. And Second Life? Well, there's always a new opportunity… Continue reading 104. How to… have a good time.
There's a saying I've heard the entire time I've been growing up. My mom and my nana would use it often, perhaps because we're all cut from the same cloth. We're nice enough, but we also have this policy not to let ourselves be walked on. Sometimes, I forget that. Sometimes, I forget that, and… Continue reading 99. How to… make one hell of an impression.
It's been... a rough time lately. Or the last couple years? A long time. Anyway, I think the point is that no matter how much life - the first or the Second one - throws at you, the key is to be patient. As much as life can knock you down, there are so many… Continue reading 97. How to… be patient.
Did anyone else hate the color pink when they were little? Anyone? Well, I've had this love-hate relationship with the color pink since I was little. At one point, my room was pink. Then I went through a no-pink phase, then I liked it again, and hated it again...and at some point after joining Second… Continue reading 95. How to… look pretty in pink.
Bwahaha. I couldn't help it guys. This paddle is so pretty and it maaaatches my tattoo. Isn't it yummy? Those of you who know me may not be surprised to know I'm a kinkster, and while I don't usually spend time in these blogs bragging about my sponsors, Short Leash was one of the first… Continue reading 57. How to… add some steam to your SL dream.
Second Life has exactly zero chill sometimes, guys. I'm sure that any of us who have been around for more than five minutes have figured that out. And I suppose we all have our ways of coping with it while still sticking around the grid to hang out with our friends and fawn over our… Continue reading 28. How to… get it all out.
I hope everyone's Valentine's Day (or Singles Appreciation Day, if you're like me) went well. In my case, there was brownies and an Outlander season 4 marathon, because season 5 debuts tonight... So, ya know, I had to remind myself of all that fabulousness. I've seen so many people concerned or upset the last couple… Continue reading 26. How to… choose you.
We're a week out from Valentine's day, and one look at my Facebook or Flickr feeds tells me a couple of things that I'm not too surprised about: Some of y'all are seriously feeling the V-Day vibes. And Some of y'all are just... not. I wish we showed such an outpouring of love and care… Continue reading 22. How to… share the love.
This year has been a hard year already. Now, I know what you're going to say. "But Nova, you twit, it's only January!" Yep. It sure is. And you know what I realized this morning, as I contemplated the very real possibility of turning in my notice at work tomorrow and giving up on the… Continue reading 14. How to… Let it go.
Sorry. I had to do it. I just had to. I have a new computer. A NEW COMPUTER. And yes, caps-lock is totally necessary. My laptop was staging an all-out revolution before the holiday, as some of you know. It was as if it had become sentient, and was angered by the knowledge that it… Continue reading 12.
