I’ll Rise Up

Hello, beautiful people! I have been playing around with lights lately after watching this amazing tutorial from Daeberethwen. I do use projectors and lights in a lot of my photos anyway, but I primarily use Beev’s tutorial on soft/diffused lighting. If you’re someone who is wanting to make your photos better and you’re unsure how, just go to YouTube! We have so many amazing photographers who have made tutorials on how they do certain things to make their photos. I know I have learned so much from watching them. The best part, I feel, is that no one says “You have to do it this way.” You can learn from one person and learn from another and mix it all together to make something that works for you. It’s art!

She Taught Me Love, She Taught Me Patience

Hello, lovely people! As we get closer to the end of the year, it’s pretty normal to start to get introspective. We think about what happened over the year, and start making goals for the new year. This year definitely brought a lot of changes to my life! Some of them hurt, but most were really good for me. I feel like I’m in a good place right now. I mean, I’m still anxious 90% of the time and I still feel nuts a lot of the time, but… still, a good place! *laughs*

Don’t forget to hit up The Epiphany before it closes on the 27th and get to Uber before the 22nd! Collabor88 just opened up a new round, too, as did The Liaison Collaborative, so get more shopping done!

As The Shoppers Rush Home With Their Treasures

Hello, beautiful people! Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? I will start mine…oh, probably the week before Christmas. I know, there are probably some of you out there screaming in horror at that. Sorry! I’m not sure why I do this. I just do.

But in SL, where gift giving is different, sometimes we rely on gacha items because they’re transferable. And luckily for us, The Epiphany is having a special holiday round! It opens up on November 29th at 10pm SLT and runs until December 27th. Trust me. you will LOVE IT!

You Never Know Who You’re Gonna Find There

If there is one season that Second Life does well, it’s the Halloween season! I don’t think it’s that we’re a particularly dark group or anything. I think it’s just because this season allows for so much creativity. And with so many super events happening this month, I just know that all of you will find your magic. As for me… I can’t wait to start getting into some spookier pictures!

The Epiphany started yesterday, and runs until November 12th! Be sure you get there as soon as you can to get all the goodies!

Today Is Where Your Book Begins

On Monday morning I did a live stream in SL for the first time in quite a while. I had forgotten how much I missed just chatting with people who are kind enough to come and hear me ramble about various things. It’s different than what I do on my Twitch channel. There, I play games and chat about what I’m doing in that moment. Somehow, live streaming on YouTube is different, and I can talk about any number of things. If you missed it, then I’m sorry, because I deleted the video immediately afterwards. Mostly because I did a playlist of current pop songs in the background and I didn’t need 37 copyright notices, but also because I wanted to chat about some personal things just to get them out there.

Someone in my chat mentioned that SL breaks are a good thing, because it means you can come back later and remember why you love this place. You can start again. It reminds me of a quote I really enjoy – “At any given moment, you have the power to say ‘This is not how my story will end.'”

No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins

The rest is still unwritten.

Fall Into Place

Happy fall, y’all! Well…okay, okay. I get that technically it’s not fall yet. I get that. But I don’t quite go by the real dates for things. For me, fall officially starts on September 1st, no matter what the weather is doing outside! And luckily my sister humors me, because she changed our sim to fall over the weekend.

I wanted to just thank some of you for the incredibly sweet IMs I’ve gotten as some of you have noticed me inching my way back into Second Life. Believe me when I say that I am more grateful than you could possibly know. I spent quite a bit of time in SL over the weekend and it felt really good. I want more of that.

Every time you get up
And get back in the race
One more small piece of you
Starts to fall into place

Choose Redemption

Hello bunnies! So it’s my birthday today! As most people know, I can be a little extra about birthdays. I mean, one year I had three parties in a week just to celebrate! But I think everyone should be a little extra about their birthday. Not everyone gets another chance around the sun, you know? Plus it’s like having your very own personal New Year’s Day. Who doesn’t love that “fresh start” feeling, you know?

But speaking of fresh starts, a new round of Whimsical has opened up, so be sure to get out there and have some fun!

Which Way Is The Wind Blowing

Hello bunnies, I hope you all are doing well! Do you ever feel like you seriously don’t know which way the wind is blowing? It just kind of feels like it’s blowing from everywhere and you aren’t quite sure where to turn your head. I’ve felt like that a little bit lately. But it’s all good. It just means I have a lot of directions that I could take. And one of those directions is taking me shopping!

You Just Might Get It All

Hey bunnies, happy Monday! You know, one of my goals is to have a beautiful dining room one day in my offline world. The dining area in my house is actually where I have my computer! Who knows. Maybe one day I will put my foot down and get all the furniture in here moved around I’ll finally get the dining room I really want. But until that day comes… there’s always Second Life!
