They say the definition of insanity is repeating the same action over and over again expecting different results. Well, I don't know who "they" is, but whoever they are, I think they may have had a Second Life account at some point. I've spent most of the past few days in such a state of… Continue reading 144. Even your favorite song will get on your nerves if you keep it on repeat too long (PS: this is true of everything else, too!)
So, I've noticed something since I've started taking photos in Second Life. For a long time, I had this... aversion to the color pink. I don't care how you want to slice it. Maybe I was avoiding constructed gender norms... maybe I felt like I didn't want to look like Barbie threw up all over… Continue reading 121. How to… be pretty in pink.
Let's face it, guys: sometimes the universe is a giant douche. Sometimes, I sit back, and I watch people be ugly to each other, and petty over the most trivial crap, and all I can think is, "Really? So, we're going there? This insignificant thing is that important? Does anyone realize that there's much bigger… Continue reading 120. How to… do the scary stuff.
The general rule of doing anything new is to prepare for the worst and hope for the best. And, of course, along the way, to expect that anything and everything you could possibly imagine could go wrong will do so. To avoid curling into a fetal position and crying while sucking your thumb and imagining… Continue reading 110. How to… wait for it…
When I'm in a weird mood, I end up redoing my avatar from top to toe... usually because it makes me feel like I have control of something when real life is reeling its ugly head and kicking me in the face with a pair of the pointiest designer heels on the market. Admittedly, I… Continue reading 109. How to… smile through it.
This week has been a wild ride, y'all, and minus the seizures, I'd say pretty good overall in both worlds. I'm prepping for a move in real life, and I was Kevin'd twice this week in SL... Though regrettably, I wasn't able to think of anything snappy to say to him either time. In any… Continue reading 103. How to… see the glass as half-full.
Sorry not sorry, guys. This backdrop ~spoke to me, and I couldn't help myself. I've been thinking a lot lately, and feeling myself getting more and more frustrated with literally everything from my personal situation to Blender's apparent will to destroy me to the state of the world today. It's times like this when, if… Continue reading 83. How to… get through when all you wanna do is say…
So... I have come to the realization in the last couple days that I am in desperate need of my personal space. I've been taking some of my photos a little ahead of time in hopes that our house guests wouldn't be here too long. They're using my room where my swanky new desktop is,… Continue reading 81. How to… stop and smell the flowers.
I didn't realize how much I'd been blogging this year until I looked up at that number. I'm proud of myself, guys! And now that I've patted myself on the back... It's been a rough week. I feel like I say that every week, but at the same time, I know that there will come… Continue reading 80. How to… appreciate the past and still look toward the future.
This one's hard for me, to be honest. When I joined Second Life, I thought it was great. As a disabled person without the ability to drive, I had high hopes for Second Life as something far beyond a game. It was a social platform, too. A way to meet new people and interact in… Continue reading 79. How to… let them in.
