There's something that can be said about simply observing things sometimes. Or observing people. If you spend some time watching the world around you, you'll learn more about it. You'll be able to figure out how it breathes, what makes its heart tick. You'll know it more intimately. The same is true for people. You… Continue reading 197. How to… look beyond what you see with your eyes.
196. How to… let it all out.
It's been a crazy couple weeks, which means I've neglected this blog a little more than I would like, but I'm back! All three or four of you who read this are hopefully excited about that. And you know what else? I learned something in this last couple weeks. I spent so much time stressing… Continue reading 196. How to… let it all out.
183. How to… start something new.
I think we have problems sometimes really going for it. Know what I mean? We adopt this attitude of "I can't" not because we can't but because we don't know where to get the resources we need to figure it out. And for some of us, that's daunting. For some, it's enough to make you… Continue reading 183. How to… start something new.
182. How to… Keep the dream alive.
Okay y'all. I know I've been on a kick lately, and I guess all I can say about that is #sorrynotsorry. I just feel like sometimes, we just need a firm kick in our pixel ass to remind us that we didn't come here just to like... stand around on our platforms and stare at… Continue reading 182. How to… Keep the dream alive.
160. When you have a platform, use it…
I know that this reference may go over some of your heads, but back in the day, there was a time when Toby McGuire played Spiderman. And right before Uncle Ben dies, he says something to poor Toby McGuire that I think is really important. He says, "With great power comes great responsibility." Now, in… Continue reading 160.

157. Pro-tip: Know when it’s time to say goodbye… and not just to this crappy year.
It's almost that time, y'all. We've almost made it to the end of the year, and if yours has been anything like mine, you're probably exhausted, carrying on by sheer force of will simply because you can see the finish line just ahead. It's almost over... and hopefully, we can say a nice goodbye to… Continue reading 157. Pro-tip: Know when it’s time to say goodbye… and not just to this crappy year.
153. You can be yourself and still find your people…
The summer before I started high school, my dad got news that we were going to be stationed in Okinawa, Japan. So that May or June, we packed up our entire lives and got on a plane in the United States and got off the plan in Japan. And you know... at first, living there… Continue reading 153. You can be yourself and still find your people…
143. I Shouldn’t Have to Tell You to Love Yourself First…
Sometimes, I feel like... like I must have missed something important somewhere along the line. I'm not sure where, and perhaps one day I'll be able to figure it out, but for now, I just sit back, and I watch. Every day, I see people in both RL and SL putting themselves in these horrible… Continue reading 143. I Shouldn’t Have to Tell You to Love Yourself First…
104. How to… have a good time.
Okay.... so a good time doesn't always have to involve a dress made out of fishnet, but I couldn't help myself, y'all. I am in a mood lately. A good one. Things are looking up and working out and everything wonderful in-between, so I can't complain. And Second Life? Well, there's always a new opportunity… Continue reading 104. How to… have a good time.
103. How to… see the glass as half-full.
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.
