225. How to… have some patience.

You guys, tonight or tomorrow (not sure which) is going to be my first official night in my new house. I don't know how we're going to do it, but that's the plan. I feel like "the plan" always gets kicked in the ass in one way or another, though. But... I'm trying to stay… Continue reading 225. How to… have some patience.

209. How to… remember what’s really worth it.

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.

156. Sometimes the scariest things turn out to be the most worthwhile…

I am going to let you all in on a secret: this year - or the last several months, at least - has been firmly in my, "this scares the shit out of me" box in real life. Let me unpack that box a little bit. I think we're all pretty well aware of the… Continue reading 156. Sometimes the scariest things turn out to be the most worthwhile…

154. When you can’t find the beauty, you can make it yourself…

It's been a helluva year, hasn't it? Sometimes, when we feel at our worst, it's hard to see the brighter side of things. I speak here from personal experience, of course. I've talked a few times about how it feels to be down in the pits... and how it feels to rise up out of… Continue reading 154. When you can’t find the beauty, you can make it yourself…

152. The simplest way to learn from your mistakes is to own them first…

It's been a long couple days, and I'm so very tired... but at the same time, there's a few things going on that just have my heart so full I feel like it could burst. I'm loving my new job in real life and it makes me feel like a million bucks to know that… Continue reading 152. The simplest way to learn from your mistakes is to own them first…

150. Pro-tip: Don’t just sit around and wait…

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. And it's just as alive in Second Life as it is in the real world - perhaps even more so… Continue reading 150. Pro-tip: Don’t just sit around and wait…

141. The case for kindness (remember – there’s a person behind that avatar!)

I am utterly and completely exhausted. I think most of us can say that on any given day, though. And perhaps even more so this year. 2020 has been the year of just about everything. Natural disasters, not-so-natural disasters, disease, social distancing, murder hornets, and more... We all have a lot on our plates. A… Continue reading 141.

137. Sometimes when it’s broke, you can’t fix it…

Some people need to learn when to say no. Me, actually. I'm one of those people. Lately... and most of the time, if I'm completely honest, I'm burning the candle at both ends. Real life, Second Life... doesn't matter. I think that little switch in my brain - the one that tells me to sit… Continue reading 137. Sometimes when it’s broke, you can’t fix it…

136. Consult your pharmacist for information on possible side-effects… (or just be a little nicer to people)

Second Life has offered benefits to so many of us over the years in ways that would be hard to quantify here... but it's also developed a sickness. Maybe this is something that Second Life always had. I'm not so sure, but it's definitely been growing, because like the Audrey plant in Little Shop of… Continue reading 136.
