If my lack of blog posts as of late weren't an indication, I've kind of had real life kicking me in the face a little more than I'd usually like to admit. I got the flu - not Covid, the other one - and my leg has been swollen something fierce for... weeks now? I… Continue reading 213. How to… balance it all without risking a fall.
204. How to… get the most out of those “happy accidents”
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”
200. How to… come out of the closet.
You're going to hear about pride a lot this month. Now, my English professors would slap me silly for using the term inside the definition, but pride is exactly what it sounds like. It's being proud of yourself. Having confidence in yourself. Loving yourself for all that you are - your best qualities, your flaws,… Continue reading 200. How to… come out of the closet.
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. 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.
186. Pro-tip: (Wind)light up your life…
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…
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…

FOMO is real. And for those of you who don't know what that is... Well, today, you're about to get a little lesson. FOMO or Fear of Missing Out is exactly what it sounds like.

116. How to… avoid SL’s cardinal sin.
I already know what y'all are thinking, so before we get started, I'll clarify. Here's a list of the topics about which we are NOT talking today: "Is anyone going to tell her that her ankle lock isn't on and her foot is sticking out her belly button?""Come on now. Turn on your AO. You're… Continue reading 116. How to… avoid SL’s cardinal sin.
97. How to… be patient.
It's been... a rough time lately. Or the last couple years? A long time. Anyway, I think the point is that no matter how much life - the first or the Second one - throws at you, the key is to be patient. As much as life can knock you down, there are so many… Continue reading 97. How to… be patient.
70. How to… bring the world back into focus.
So, last night, my friend and I were rambling on as we sometimes do, and we got onto the subject of kids. Don't ask me how we got there, because it probably involved a few strange left turns and a brief foray into the kind of topics that would make interesting comic book fodder... but… Continue reading 70.
