Lost but Found

Lost but Found

People spend their whole lives searching for things. I must admit I search for my keys more than anything else sometimes. Others search for a purpose. A meaning needs to be behind everything that is done for them to feel like what they are doing is worth it. Someone said to me this week that they aren’t sure why they log into Second Life anymore. It really made me start to examine my own intentions for being in this world. I think we all come to SL for the same reason. We might feel a tad bit lost. Lost could mean that your bored or that your maybe looking for something to happen out of the normal. Personally I came here because I was a little bored. I was looking for something that I could consider a hobby. I enjoy computer games so why not? Then I eventually found blogging and I have to say that my second life became a little more open for me. I kind of encourage people to find that nitch that they were seeking. Mine was blogging, but that doesn’t mean it is for everyone. It may take some time, but it is worth finding what excites you. TOOTLES!

This was my second experience with Tres Chic. I have only ever been there once and I can’t really say why. Maybe it was the fact that RL had slightly taken over my SL or that it slipped my mind every time. Not any longer! I was completely blown away with the quality of items and the designers that were present. It is now, forever as it lasts, on my must go to event list. Of course it goes right up there with FaMESHed who is having it’s 3rd anniversary this month which means gift bags from designers! How awesome is that!? The designers were generous enough to hand out something for us for being such faithful buyers ;P Oh come on you know I emptied my pockets there today as well lol.

It has been too long since I have just sat back and relaxed in SL or RL. I felt a trip to the beach was in order and since there are so many great items coming out for this I figured I would show you a few while I enjoyed the views. This first picture above is with me wearing a pair of shoes called Trinidad made by Essenz. Below I am wearing a pair of flats from Poute called Roma. Both of these shoes can be found at Tres Chic for the May round. With so many flat shoes coming out I am having to swap shoes more than I do clothes lately! ❤ Hope you enjoy your time in SL! TOOTLES

Happy One Year WordPress

1.20.15.1

Just this past few weeks I have been introduced to some new things in SL. All of them happen to be in these photos. {AIMI} skins, LIZIAAH, and boating. I can let you guess on which of these things I am more familiar with. Needless to say, this year has been full of new and amazing things. I wanted to put them all in this post because this marks my one year blogging on this wordpress account. I never imagined that I would stick with blogging this long. I think you really have to love it to stay with something for an extended period and I think blogging may be the only thing that I would keep doing for this length of time. I seem to always stay amazed and love everything that I have posted. I wouldn’t choose to show it off if I didn’t. Well I hope for another amazing year bringing you some of the newest and best designs and events in Second Life. TOOTLES!

A New Chapter

1.4.15.1

It has been a week of closing and opening new chapters in my life, so I felt it was only accurate to blog some items from The Chapter Four. The brand new January round of The Chapter Four started yesterday, which happened to be my very first day at my new home for the next year. Thanks to the military, my family has to pick up and move and be apart for another year of our lives. This is nothing new; however, it has certainly made me feel slightly crazy for the past couple of months. Please forgive me if I have not really seemed like myself… but I have also made some pretty important decisions during this time that I do not and will never regret. One of these has been to begin to limit my blogging. I want to blog what I love as I see it… I do not like feeling confined to a certain way or style. I also do not have the time any longer as a “single” parent with full time classes and a job to blog as I have done so in the past. Please be patient as I figure out what times and schedules will fit my new lifestyle the best. Hugs you to all and I hope you have had a fabulous start to your new year 🙂 TOOTLES

Logic vs. Imagination

12.7.14.1

 

“Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.” – Albert Einstein

I have blogged most of my blogging life with logic. Thinking what will a designer want to see and what will readers want to see. In fact, if I look even deeper into my RL… everything is with logic. I think about every single detail of my life before it gets to that point because I love to be prepared. I always think what is the point if you aren’t prepared. Imagination kind of hasn’t been that big a part of my life.. until recently. The amount of imagination that it takes to put into most blog posts plus into normal photos is just draining. I took 3 weeks off to be in RL with my family for vacation and it was a very eye opening experience. The imagination kind of stayed on vacation I think because I feel like I have hit a brick wall with things. More will come soon… when I figure things out with logic… but I want to go everywhere… not just a straight line to what I have had planned. Strength will overcome 🙂 Here is to hoping I get back on track soon! 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

Pouting on Tuesday

8.26.14_004

This week seems to be the busiest I have been in a long while. I had to go to Baltimore yesterday for some things and wasn’t able to get my post together for Hello Tuesday until now, which is a little late. I will be going back again tomorrow for more things, but I should resume regular posting later on this week. For now, I couldn’t let you go around without knowing about these amazing deals at CSR plus the items that are available for today only for Hello Tuesday. Hope you find some time today to go shopping, because you are going to regret it if you don’t. TOOTLES!

I am so lazy, but it takes the motivation of my friends and family to keep me going and Lizzie has been there this week to help me show even more items from Cosmopolitan Sales Room before the last day. The room ends tomorrow and then prepares for another round so you have to get in there fast to take advantage of these sales. Hope you enjoy your shopping! TOOTLES
