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.

226. How to… make time.

I know. It's been a long time since last!blog. But guys... Guys... being a new homeowner has been simultaneously the most awesome and the most exhausting thing I have ever experienced. If it weren't for the fact that I looked at my phone earlier, I'd have no idea what day it is. I'm pretty sure… Continue reading 226. How to… make time.

220. How to… celebrate you!

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.

210. How to… accept what you cannot change.

This is my first post this month that doesn't feature some kind of rainbow awesomeness. While I've been living it up in rainbow all month, I also understand that Pride isn't about rainbows. It's about acceptance and love and visibility. It's about freedom, and so many other things apart from what it's been commercialized as.… Continue reading 210. How to… accept what you cannot change.

199. How to… look for the positives.

As someone who has 'It's been a rough week' as a staple in the vocabulary, I like to think I've become somewhat of an expert in the not-so-subtle art of not giving a f*ck when the world hands me lemons.

185. How to… hold on to what’s important.

We're people, guys. I hate to tell you this if you weren't aware, but behind every single one of our avatars with their perfectly-in-place-always hair and their impeccable fashion sense and lavish virtual homes are people. And people get tired. They have things to do and bills to pay and weight to carry around, their… Continue reading 185. How to… hold on to what’s important.

163. Ch-ch-changes…

In Second Life, we have this tendency to reinvent ourselves... a lot. New head comes out? We're on it. New body? Yes, please. And let's not forget the endless shopping for new clothes, new shoes, tattoos we can change at whim. We love reinventing ourselves in Second Life. But why? Because it's fun. Because we… Continue reading 163. Ch-ch-changes…

162. Pro-tip: It’s all fun and games until…

Have you ever seen one of those compilation fail!videos on Facebook or Youtube? They usually involve someone sailing along, doing something super cool and/or gravity-defying until suddenly, the Universe slaps them back to reality. They crash into a wall, or their man-bits get far too intimate with a metal pole, and we, the unassuming viewer,… Continue reading 162. Pro-tip: It’s all fun and games until…
