See You Later

See You Later

Writing this has been a long time coming. I have known for the past year that this day would come and I wasn’t exactly sure when it would happen… but today is the day! Last night I had to step down from all of my sponsors that I have had left and now I am officially sponsor free. I am also officially taking a break from blogging. This isn’t goodbye, but it is certainly a see you later. I will be taking a few months away from here starting in February. When I come back things will be different around here. My blog will be changing for the better and I am excited for that time. I will see you all in about two months 🙂 TOOTLES!

The Hard Life

The Hard Life

Christmas break was pretty nice, I have to admit. If it wasn’t for all the flooding, warm weather, and tornadoes… I might have forgotten I lived in the good ole south. Sarcasm is pretty heavy at the moment if you couldn’t tell. The only thing that felt like Christmas was the lights and cheesy hallmark movies. I think I have had my overload, so I am back to blogging between work. Hopefully sickness will keep away from this house as well! Been a whirlwind.  So… Welcome back to me 🙂 TOOTLES

Just a bit of a break

Just a bit of a break

Just a little bit of a rest for me… Leaning on these giant decorations for a moment between work, the parties, and decorating. I am surprised there isn’t a bow in my hair and tape stuck somewhere it shouldn’t be. Hope everyone is having a wonderful season! TOOTLES

I received an early Christmas present this year. I received my first ever tablet! I have been looking into getting a tablet for a while to play around in Photoshop a little more, but I didn’t really know the benefit of one before. I have for the last 2 years only used my laptop mouse pad to do my editing. I thought that was good enough right? Well, a very generous gift and something I have wanted for a while and I finally got to play around with it today. This is my first photo done with my tablet and I have to say it is going to take some getting use to. This photo took me about twice as long, but I am pretty happy with it and happy to share 🙂 I am not perfect by any means, but I am happy to work on all my little mistakes and try to get better with each photo.

Glad I Stayed Home

Glad I Stayed Home

I saw a post on Facebook earlier that I have shared to my RL account and it basically is a dog wrapped in a blanket sitting on the couch. It states, “Everyone is out partying and I am just here wrapped in a blanket happy at home”. Now, I usually like to be out and doing something and when I am not, I am doing something in SL like blogging or exploring. I have lately even attended a few live events. Today is one I am glad I didn’t go to. I heard… now this is just me seeing others comments on the subject… that some really nasty things were said about others at an event I was planning on going to today. I will not name who or where, but I just sit back and think about that photo of the dog. Glad I decided not to go and to blog instead because I am not very good at holding my tongue when others make themselves look like jerks. I just think sometimes people should watch their mouths and think about others. I also think that it is the people who put this event together who is to blame for this happening today. You have to watch who you surround yourself with and if you are surrounded by judgmental and nasty hearted people then that is what you are going to see. Maybe I just have a bad opinion of these people from the start from other things I have seen and this just further proves my theory of why I like to keep to myself. I have been stabbed in the back too much times to keep letting it happen I guess. I am not a nasty person so therefore I have a hard time keeping my mouth shut when I see others who are. Be kind to others. That is the takeaway here. Take what you might have seen or heard about today and let it make you a better person. TOOTLES

Sipping Coffee Stunned

Sipping Coffee Stunned

I woke up this morning to the horrible images that were plastered all over the news about the terror attacks in France. I sat there sipping my coffee stunned and really not surprised. I imagined this would happen in the United States, not in France. Our governments act like nothing is going on. Just that morning, Obama sat here saying we have things under control. Does this look under control to you? We have NO idea who is in the United States ready to act the same as we just saw in Paris. This is a scary world we are living in and I for one am counting my blessings daily. TOOTLES

Cold Front Coming In

Cold Front Coming In

Today has been a change in the weather. A change in the RL weather as well as the SL weather. Oh, you didn’t realize we had weather in SL? We do. It comes with the changing of moods and events in our Second Lives. Recent events have caused me to grow cold to the ways of Second Life. The way people can come and go and do as they please without considering that there are people on the other side of the computer screen. On that note, I took a visit to a winter sim to go with my mood. Hope you enjoy! TOOTLES

Done Gone and Done It

Done Gone and Done It

I received a very disturbing message earlier this evening about a friend who was being harassed by someone on Facebook. A few of my close friends know that I work for a health and wellness company called Plexus. I absolutely LOVE it! It gives me the opportunity to help so many people. This friend who messaged me also works for Plexus and had sold some to a member of a fellow group they were both a part of. This was a mothers group of large families. Needless to say… it got ugly. This person took Plexus for a week and expected crazy results. When she didn’t receive instant results she decided to take to this Facebook group and blast this person all over media and tried to ruin any credibility that she had earned. I was a little beyond mad, because no one ever claimed she would lose weight let alone lose weight in a week. She was only eating 900 calories and mostly only fruit and veggies which are empty calories. Barely any protein. It doesn’t take a genius to realize she wasn’t doing this correctly, but I think there might be a slight eating disorder in there somewhere because after the week of people trying to tell her she can’t do this to herself she didn’t get it and go made and I guess was looking to lash out because she was upset it didn’t work.

Why am I telling you all this? Just like my friend who needed to message me to vent about how she was being treated… I need to vent as well. I obviously can’t vent to this friend, because I feel like me venting to her about how its ridiculous will only fuel her fire to be upset even more. I had to play the calming friend when all I wanted to do was blast this girl for being nuts. Every behavior I had seen has pointed to the crazy house and I had to just vent somewhere. Taking deep breaths wasn’t working. This was all on RL Facebook, so please no one think this is about someone that we all might know lol. I feel better at least! TOOTLES

Are your big boy pants in the wash?

Are your big boy pants in the wash?

Lately there has been a lot of drama on Facebook. I have sat back for the past week with a bowl of popcorn watching the show unfold as if I could just read every detail of each persons side of things because that is how detailed some of the posts and comments were. I do not deal with these people personally, and reading all of this has made me thankful that I mostly like to stay alone. What reason would even motivate me to mix with people who could potentially go off at a moments notice. I have found that Second Life is full of people who use others to gain something. I have found that Second Life is full of crazy people who make false claims to gain pity. I have found that Second Life is full of mentally ill people who only claim to have an issue when something doesn’t go their way. Otherwise it is all smiles right? I do know that there are good people in Second Life. I have met quite a few of them, but I am certainly not motivated to make new friends because of all the drama. Take a little note and stop venting every little issue you have with someone on Facebook. It is a tad ridiculous! It is one thing to vent about a situation and another to call people out and have back and forth statuses about someone because you want to out them or whatever the case may be. I am speaking on about 5 different “fights” I have witnessed just in the last week. Also, if something doesn’t go your way show some grace… and maybe get out of Second Life for a while to gain some sort of perspective. Making something of yourself in a virtual world means absolutely nothing. You may claim that it means something to you and it would mean the world and blah blah blah… In reality, your success is based on you sitting in front of a computer. It’s really nothing. Your much needed “SLebrity” status is null and void because it means nothing. Put your big boy pants on and get over it and move on. There is only so many times that someone can “cry wolf” on being slandered or hurt or taken advantage of before it becomes a spectacle. Rant over… TOOTLES!
