213. How to… balance it all without risking a fall.

If my lack of blog posts as of late weren't an indication, I've kind of had real life kicking me in the face a little more than I'd usually like to admit. I got the flu - not Covid, the other one - and my leg has been swollen something fierce for... weeks now? I… Continue reading 213. How to… balance it all without risking a fall.

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.

197. How to… look beyond what you see with your eyes.

There's something that can be said about simply observing things sometimes. Or observing people. If you spend some time watching the world around you, you'll learn more about it. You'll be able to figure out how it breathes, what makes its heart tick. You'll know it more intimately. The same is true for people. You… Continue reading 197. How to… look beyond what you see with your eyes.

193. Pro-tip: Tie it all together with a smile…? Nope. Let that stuff out.

I would be lying if I said the last couple days I wasn't some big huge ball of anxiety and stress and just... general blah-ness. But I think, if I'm honest, one of the things that helped me keep it together the most was that the people closest to me knew what was going on.… Continue reading 193.

Y'all, the Universe did not want me to get this photo out... all of which looked like fire on my screen and the dumpster variety of fire when I opened them up in Photoshop to have a better look. There was at lease one thing in every single one of the photos I took that… Continue reading 190. Pro-Tip: If at first it doesn’t rez…

156. Sometimes the scariest things turn out to be the most worthwhile…

I am going to let you all in on a secret: this year - or the last several months, at least - has been firmly in my, "this scares the shit out of me" box in real life. Let me unpack that box a little bit. I think we're all pretty well aware of the… Continue reading 156. Sometimes the scariest things turn out to be the most worthwhile…

147. Or… stay with me, here… you could try not being a jerk?

What is it with people? Have so many really forgotten kindness, and courtesy, and empathy? I've spent the last several years in both worlds with my mom going, "I don't know why you don't date more," and people in SL at times literally patting me on the head and openly talking about how sad it… Continue reading 147.

143. I Shouldn’t Have to Tell You to Love Yourself First…

Sometimes, I feel like... like I must have missed something important somewhere along the line. I'm not sure where, and perhaps one day I'll be able to figure it out, but for now, I just sit back, and I watch. Every day, I see people in both RL and SL putting themselves in these horrible… Continue reading 143. I Shouldn’t Have to Tell You to Love Yourself First…

141. The case for kindness (remember – there’s a person behind that avatar!)

I am utterly and completely exhausted. I think most of us can say that on any given day, though. And perhaps even more so this year. 2020 has been the year of just about everything. Natural disasters, not-so-natural disasters, disease, social distancing, murder hornets, and more... We all have a lot on our plates. A… Continue reading 141.
