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.
Earlier today, a friend and I were talking about the different meanings lyrics can have and how it's funny to think about some things in those kind of terms. Well, more or less. We were also fangirling a bit about finally getting to watch the first episode of season 5 of Outlander, but I digress.… Continue reading 27. How to… get back up again.
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.
I couldn't help it, y'all. This is blog post #25 here, and I feel like I'm finally getting into a routine. And, of course, thinking about the fact that I've gotten myself into a routine brought routines to mind...and I realized just how widely-helpful and healthful having a routine can be. It doesn't matter if… Continue reading 25. How to… make it a habit?
I am determined that this week is going to be better than the last, but if I'm honest, I've been running on fumes since Monday. I went to a discussion group the other day, and we talked a little bit about pouring from an empty bucket. I'm there. I've been there. And I know what… Continue reading 23. How to… reach for the stars.
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.
It's going to be a long day. On days that really punch you in the gut, I know that it's easier to just lay down and take the whomping from the universe and just give up. But you know what? Don't do that. Keep dreaming. Keep building, and learning, and doing all the things that… Continue reading 21. How to…keep dreamin’.
Have you ever been standing in a crowded room, and there's a thousand and one different conversations going on, and people are laughing and joking, and you, you're literally surrounded by them, all in the thick of it, and yet you feel completely alone? That's me. A lot. Sometimes I feel like I am just… Continue reading 20. How to…make new friends
One of the hardest things about trying to come out of my shell this year and step away from those things in my past that have managed to dig their claws in so deep is that they're still there. They're still there, so the temptation in both worlds to simply take a deep breath and… Continue reading 18. How to…confront those demons
I would say TGIF, but it's Saturday, so... Yay weekend? I meant to post this yesterday and initially had a completely different tune and photo in mind, but things and stuff happened, and I have the attention span of a gnat at times, so here we are! First of all, the definition of thirsty in… Continue reading 17. How to… Stay thirsty
