Heebie Jeebie Hunt

Heebie Jeebie Hunt Sign

Not much time to sit around and chat today… have had the last 24 hours of trick or treat… someone forgot my dang treat! Halloween came early for me, but you can celebrate the entire month with the Heebie Jeebie hunt… 1L per each item and so many goodies to get. You can find a list of stores that are participating here on the I & R Hunt blog. I hope to see you creeping around hunting for this stuff. BTW… lets make it even more fun and we should all wear a costume on this hunt! I wait all year to wear costumes during Halloween… be ready to see some fun stuff this month! TOOTLES

I seem to be taking a lot of suggestive pictures lately… I can’t say that I really mind considering that I do consider myself a sexual person, but this is actually for a good reason, I promise! Most have heard of the book 50 Shades of Grey. I haven’t been able to read the book… but I have wanted to. I know the movie is coming out in February, and I will probably be more likely to see the movie before I have a chance to read anything other than a school book. UBER is doing the 50 shades theme for October. I love these kinds of events and themes, so I needed to jump at the chance to show you a couple of items released. Also, I am rather happy, but this is my first post in the Belleza Venus Mesh body. I would do a full post on the body, but sadly, there are about a million of them and not really any need to add my two cents about it all. Anyway…. I have a lot of things I could say with this photo considering what was going on as I was taking it… but I will pass :) *coughs* That will have to wait, because I may say too much since it is rather late for me. Just go enjoy UBER… it begins tonight! TOOTLES

My Escape

9.28.14.2

This past week and weekend have been a slight strain for myself. I have been having to write this paper for one of my law classes on any topic of choice. Picking my topic wasn’t a hard choice, because I wanted something that had a ton of meaning for me and something that I could really dive into and put feeling behind. I picked Adoption Law… because I am adopted as well. I had to mostly focus on the law portions of this while adding in my own personal opinion. I honestly can’t help that my own personal opinion is so bias in this situation. Maybe picking a topic so close to home was a bad idea in this case. I spent half the paper crying. Why? I have no idea! Maybe just the overwhelming feeling hoping that other kids get the outcome that I had… or maybe I spent some of the time mourning a life that I might have had. It is a very strange feeling to be so conflicted in this. Adoption isn’t hard for me to talk about and it isn’t even hard for me to talk about what I do know about my birth parents. I often wonder just what traits I picked up from them. I even have been curious when I have met people in world if just maybe there was some relationship there to my biological family. I believe it is natural to question, but I have been asked if I want to find my birth family and the answer is always a large NO! I was given away for a reason… That reason is what keeps me from going to look. It just was a very sad and confusing weekend on top of having to write this rather large paper and create a power point. I just hope that I don’t break out into tears during my presentation in class. I have worked for years with support groups for adoptees and haven’t broken out in tears yet… so here’s to hoping!

My escape from these thoughts has always been SL. I think this is why I do spend a lot of alone time in SL. It is hard to feel like you belong when you have never felt that before. I think that is why most log in to SL. To feel something or do something that they can’t in RL. I am grateful to be able to log in and then write about things that I feel or stuff that I go through. It is probably a little better than walking right up to a complete stranger and spilling your guts than to have people walk up to you and wait to read what your going to put out there. Maybe that is why it has taken me so long to write something like this about myself. Anyway…. I am just grateful to have a distraction at this point. Cosmopolitan Sales Room started yesterday and so I went about with my shopping therapy, which turns out to be much cheaper in SL than if I participated in this in RL. Enjoy your new round of Cosmo and hope to see you out shopping! I apologize for my crazy rant… I really should post a warning somewhere when you open my blog that there may be more information than one cares to know! TOOTLES

I Found You

Do you know what I find the most intoxicating about SL? It is not the shopping… or the sims to visit, which are intoxicating in their own ways… but it is the people you meet along the way. People that find you… because there is some connection that brings you together. Sometimes it is just randomly running into someone who catches your eye, or you meet people through other friends. What is the way that you meet people? I would say probably the last six months I have met most of my friends through Facebook. I have been lucky to find some incredible people who have made my SL so very special. TOOTLES

Wasting Time

9.26.14.2.

There is this little thing called time. If you look… you can find so many quotes or advice on time and what you should do with it or better yet what you should do with your time that you have. They say don’t waste it… but then they say all you need is time and time to heal or time to move on. Time is more like a volleyball match really. Play with it how you like, but at the end it will drop and it will be time to pick up and go again. I am not really one for quotes, but I want to share with you some of my favorite sayings about Time… because right now it’s all I have. I have been told by a special someone that I need to add more of these into my life. That will be for another post though. :)

Time is what prevents everything from happening at once. ~John Archibald Wheeler

Time is a dressmaker specializing in alterations. ~Faith Baldwin

How long a minute is, depends on which side of the bathroom door you’re on. ~Zall’s Second Law

Time is an equal opportunity employer. Each human being has exactly the same number of hours and minutes every day. Rich people can’t buy more hours. Scientists can’t invent new minutes. And you can’t save time to spend it on another day. Even so, time is amazingly fair and forgiving. No matter how much time you’ve wasted in the past, you still have an entire tomorrow. ~Denis Waitely

Change

9.24.14.4

It is late at night as I am actually writing this so please bare with me. It has been roughly two months since my SL decided to flip on me. Everything switch and I had to sit back and reflect on who I was, who I am, and where I actually want to go here. I had to make hard choices and some of those choices were made for me without my input or even wanting things to change. I went from feeling great to an extreme low. My blog even suffered to the point where I didn’t even recognize why I was blogging anymore. It had become a routine. No effort was really put into writing anymore. I just stated what I was wearing and that was just about it. My friends probably couldn’t stand me. I had become somewhat unbearable and probably still am to an extent although I am so much better now than I was back then. All of the things that I didn’t like or understand are starting to come full circle. I am not going to say too much on the subject right now, but things are about to change. I am done doing things for other people and done caring what others may or may not like. This is me and this blog was started as sort of a journal and somewhere I completely lost that fact and I still lose it from time to time and get wrapped up on fairs and new releases and forget about the enjoyment of writing and venting in my own space. Honestly, most will probably not like my blog too much after this because its going to be very real… honest… and just more myself than caring about what others think. I have needed this for a while and have talked about it, but now its actually time to do it. Stay Tuned…. TOOTLES
