Hot Mess #SecondLifeProblems

I have promised myself that I would start trying to participate in Strawberry’s Monday Memes. I was completely tickled pink to see that this week’s post was about #SecondLifeProblems. I have seen so many people posting things and some I can relate to and others I am left scratching my head and saying that this never happens to me. I read the description of the blog post and OMG I had no issues knowing exactly which one mine would be.

1.19.15.1

I know this happens to other people! Mostly women I think, but it has probably happened to you at one point in your SL life even if it was a small folder. When I get dressed in SL, I detach everything that i am wearing and its basically like starting from scratch. Like a new clothing fabric painting every time I decide I want to dress or style. Well… the Detach all and wear all button on a folder is very close… and I use a laptop so my finger slips and BAM I am the beautiful hot mess that you see above. If this has happened to you, you have to detach and then more adds on and then detach again and relog and character retest and then another relog. If you see me going off and online a lot then this is more than likely what happened. I have done this so often that a few friends have come over to take screenshots of my hot messness. I always like to make a game out of it. Can turn anything into a good thing right? A skill test for those who like to be able to recognize hair by just looking at it, so I always like to play “Name That Hair” when this happens. Can you pick some of these out in the photos yourself? Now, I need to remind everyone that I have about 10k worth of hairs in my inventory. No Lie! It is my obsession in SL and am proud to say I own just about every hair I have come across. Who knows… I may NEED this hair for something. Hoarder possibly? Stop judging me! well this is my major problem in SL… one that definitely doesn’t apply in RL! Have a great day and dont forget to check out Berry’s blog linked above and the Flickr group which will have many many more posts I am sure! Had a BLAST! TOOTLES.

My Dirty Little Secret

1.6.14.1

I am sure we have all heard of the SL Secrets website that has been posting, name calling, and dragging people through the dirt. Every week people post things anonymously about things they dislike in SL. When did SL become so important to do this for? Lately Facebook has become just as bad as this ugly website. People calling others out over drama and things that don’t really matter. In the long term… what will all of this accomplish? I see good people either sick over all of it or being sucked into it themselves. I hear reasons and all it sounds like is that WANK WANK sound that use to be on the old Charlie Brown shows. If you don’t know what I am talking about then just imagine, k? So here are my dirty little secrets before it ends up on fb or a some random website with some hateful people…

I am not perfect! That is my number one and really the only secret, which I guess isn’t a secret at all. No one is perfect and no one has the right to call ANYONE out on their stuff. Just because you feel you have a reason for it still doesn’t give you a right. I guess this could go for many things going on right now. If you aren’t on any of these social media sites then be thankful that you don’t have to read the drama going on, but this can still apply to anything that you do. You can see the wrong being done… you can learn from it and not do it yourself. You don’t HAVE to call someone out and you don’t have to choose to be bitter. I am preaching to myself as well because I have been just as bad before. I sometimes want people to see the error of their ways and I stick my foot in my mouth all the time. I am not perfect!!! There is a chapter in Matthew in the Bible that really has been a haunting stepping stone for me. It basically says do not point out the stick in someones eye when you have a beam in your eye. Basically stop being a dang hypocrite! Rise above and learn something from all of this. Be real and be who you are and not someone who is fake. Fake being pretending to be someone your not… fake also means being sweet in front of someone and then talking about them in private badly… fake can even mean that fake smile you put on because you don’t want anyone to know the truth of who you are or what your really doing. People seem to be very sneaky in SL and instead of guarding yourself to the point that your alone, it is best to just be open and trust until you have a reason not to. I am sure many think I am stupid for feeling that way, but it really has been the only way to move on from the hurt. Not everyone is out to hurt you and its the misfortune to come into contact with those that do hurt and cause pain. As I have heard someone say to me before… Do not let someone else define who you are as a person and do not lower yourself to something less because of someone else.

My take from is to drop the drama and move on.. learn to smile and be happy! Those who say they drop the drama but continue to post or make comments on it haven’t really dropped it at all.. you add fuel to the fire. Learn to have some respect for others opinions and take others feelings into consideration. It doesn’t hurt to have a little compassion even if others haven’t had it for you before. This isn’t an eye for an eye type of situation. Also, if you wonder why people do not want you involved in their company or doings in sl, then you should probably look and see what you are spewing. If all people hear are hateful mean rude things then of course they won’t want to associate with you! Learn from this and move on! I felt like adding my opinion of all this stuff on Facebook would only add even more fuel so I just posted it in my blog like everything else. I may want to also note that I am on cold medication and I can’t be held liable if all my words don’t make much sense. Just saying… TOOTLES!

Where is my Glass Slipper?

9.14.14.5

Hey, I thought this whole SL thing was suppose to bring me Cinderella stories and glass slippers? Cough… maybe in SL everyone forgot that the carriage turning back into the pumpkin wasn’t the actual end of the story. I do feel like a Cinderella in this gorgeous gown designed by Dead Dollz for Penumbra AW14. You can also have your princess moment if you run over to the Penumbra sim and pick yours up as well. I love Dead Dollz and this dress is now at the top of my must wears when that prince charming sweeps me off my feet. 🙂 TOOTLES!
