We officially got our stay at home, everything is going to be closed orders today. They take effect tomorrow, and my parental units are already absolutely losing their minds. I am the introvert in the family. We got home yesterday from dealing with a family emergency, and thus far, I have already: Gotten nearly 13… Continue reading 43. How to… keep yourself busy.
I think one of the scariest things about being an adult is the idea that you can literally stumble your way through your own life. Not everyone is born knowing what they want to do with their lives. Similarly, not everyone has the means to pursue what they want to do, nor the opportunity to… Continue reading 41. How to… start a new chapter
It's been a rough couple of days. I had a really bad migraine for a couple of days last week that culminated in a seizure. It wasn't that bad in the grand scheme of things, but I've been kind of exhausted, and it's been a little hard to see. The doc says that should wear… Continue reading 40. How to… make a connection.
Sorry guys. I can't help it. This song has been stuck in my head since I saw the graphic on this t-shirt dress last night so that's that. I've had a migraine since Friday and at one point was certain that I was going to die. At another, I was certain I would do some… Continue reading 38. How to… shine some light…
I think one of the hardest things that we will ever learn in either life is the concept of self-love... the idea that we value ourselves and know our own worth beyond what is ascribed to us by other people. I've touched on this several times in this blog and tried to encourage everyone reading… Continue reading 37. How to… like you.

Here's the thing: We all have things that we are dealing with. We all have stuff in both worlds that we have to combat… Continue reading 36. How to… keep your head above water.
I bet some of y'all were expecting some serious pigtails in this post, but that's not quite where I'm going with this one. I've been having a bit of trouble in RL and SL lately just like... not being myself. I am always myself regardless of what other people think about that, but just... accepting… Continue reading 35. How to… follow the yellow brick road
It took me a long time after coming to Second Life to get used to the sheer amount of people that seem to always be around. It wasn't just the fact that they were around, either. It's the fact that for a while, I felt like I no longer had my identity anymore. There were… Continue reading 34. How to… stay modest.
So, it's true. The dark side does have cookies. Really though, I'm not talking about going out and clobbering that irritating coworker in the kneecaps with a baseball bat. I'm talking about having a little fun. Sometimes I see people post things about SL fashion like "Well I'd never wear this in real life!" or… Continue reading 33. How to… embrace the dark side.
Sometimes, people simply don't think. Now, before you start throwing tomatoes, let me unpack that a little bit. I want to start off by saying I don't necessarily apply any of what I'm about to say to all people. But... if the shoe fits, lace that thing up and wear it, I guess. I find… Continue reading 30.
