Today is the anniversary of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, Florida, so this post seemed especially fitting for today. When I was a little girl in school, I loved to read. I'd read everything, but I was especially interested in history... and still am today. We would get our little homework assignments to read… Continue reading 209. How to… remember what’s really worth it.
For those of you who don't know, the photo-taking process for me usually involves about 50 or so shots of the same pose with different windlights and lighting, the occasional, "hmm" and lots of cursing. Sometimes, I'll even invent new words! Most of the time, the final product you guys see is just the best… Continue reading 204. How to… get the most out of those “happy accidents”
Last week, I ran a workshop about disability and kink at my home community. I initially did it because admittedly, I was a little salty about some comments that had been made in regards to my health and my ability to theoretically do things. The idea that real life comes first, but I should be… Continue reading 203. How to… accept it.
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. This is not to say that I can't make a kick-butt glass of lemonade. On… Continue reading 199. How to… look for the positives.
Some days, you just need to chuck it all into the f**k it bucket, take a deep breath, and remind yourself that tomorrow is another day. Today has been one of those days for me, but I'm so thankful for some good friends and family in the real world as well as in Second Life… Continue reading 124. How to… stop and smell the flowers.
#sorrynotsorry, guys. I have a song stuck in my head (as I often do) so... welcome to my world. Things are getting better. All around, actually. There's a lot to unpack with that - a lot - but I am trying to keep an open mind and stay positive, especially over the next couple weeks.… Continue reading 114. How to… appreciate your mistakes.
Y'all... it's been a day. Or a couple of days. I'm still kicking, but I'm exhausted, and you know... despite all of that, it's still been an amazing week. I'm pretty sure between real life and Second Life I've managed to earn myself a few new gray hairs, but it's been worth it. At least… Continue reading 76. How to… keep things in perspective.
Sometimes, you're going to do something that someone else isn't going to like. Sometimes, you're going to say something that you can't take back. These things happen. At the end of the day, even in Second Life, the land of 'do whatever the hell you want,' you still can't make everyone happy, and you certainly… Continue reading 29. How to… shake it up and shake it off.
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?
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
