Okay, y'all. So, the last couple days, I've been in a mood. I attribute this to several factors, really: the looming date of the anniversary of gran's death and my upset that the pandemic allowed us zero room to be with her for obvious reasons, school, work, school associated with work which is not to… Continue reading 189. How to… enjoy the great outdoors (sort of).
Today marks one year since we said goodbye to my gran, but it doesn't feel like a year. The last couple days - hell, couple weeks, even - I've found myself getting so emotional over the most trivial things. Things that, simply put, just don't matter. I'll admit to being an emotional person, anyway, I… Continue reading 188. Pro-tip: Give yourself all the time you need.
So, a couple of years ago, back before I started taking photos, I hadn't really explored any of the World menus or developer menus in my viewer outside of occasionally playing with my RLV functionality and maybe turning the sun from midday to midnight if I was working on something. I know, guys. I know.… Continue reading 186. Pro-tip: (Wind)light up your life…
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.
The true secret to surviving lag lies in stopping your forward motion - even if just for a moment. See, you have to stop for a second to appreciate the fact that something has gone wrong... otherwise, you're going to careen off the edge of a cliff, or find yourself face-planting against a wall, or… Continue reading 173. How to… survive the lag spike.
Here's the thing: We all have something that we're passionate about. We all have those topics that just get under our skin, or those people in our lives who just make us want to fight for what we believe in. It doesn't matter where that comes from. Somewhere, buried deep within each of us -… Continue reading 167. How to… pick your battles.
I've said it before... and I'll never stop saying it. There are some people who come into your life at exactly the right times. They're just there one day - seemingly so suddenly, when you need them the most. Not everyone who comes into your life is going to be there for good, or even… Continue reading 166. How to… appreciate what you’ve got.
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…
I was talking with a friend today about how I felt I met them at just the right time in my life. I am a firm believer that sometimes, people cross your path when you truly need them the most. When you are down, when you need a new friend, or a new perspective, or… Continue reading 161. When you’re ready to find your voice…
It's almost that time, guys. Does anyone else feel like the last couple days have lasted a few months? The important thing, I think, is to learn from this year, but not to allow it to darken our doorstep in the future. 2021 will soon be upon us, and somehow, we're going to rise out… Continue reading 159. Pro-tip: Learn from the past, then look ahead.
