Hey guys! A few nights ago, I had a dream…it was the first time in a while that I remembered anything. Afterwards, I thought about what a friend recently told me. She said that for her new job in her ideal career, she would have to spend a significant amount of money and time traveling there. The dream made me think of the following question:
Would you be willing to work fewer hours, less pay, and/or more time traveled to work at a place that you consider ideal? Or would you rather what’s considered a standard job (40 hours/week, 9 am-5 pm)?
If you want to know what the dream was about, keep reading! Feel free to interpret it as well ^^
I was outside of what seemed to be an auditorium, waiting to be allowed inside. People were dressed in business attire, and it reminded me of some seminars that I had attended in the past. People entered and sat on fold-up chairs and as they sat the leader would give them a task based on their abilities. Someone that was right before me was assigned to promoting the event and making everything look pretty. The leader asked me to follow her outside and I thought she was going to ask me about web design since I had it on my resume.
When I came outside she was sitting at the table. She accused me of being lazy because I was only working one day a week. I said it was hard to find jobs out there. She scoffed and said my task was to meet with her once a week and show proof that I was looking for a job. When I complained she said I had gotten a scholarship to the program so I should be thankful. I was about to blow up at her when I woke up.
I had mixed feelings about the dream. On one hand, despite her lack of people skills, she was actually trying to help me look for a job. On the other hand, I had never asked for a scholarship and she had made some serious judgments against me because I didn’t fit into her box. I guess we all have our moments when people judge us for what they see on the surface. They assume one thing instead of asking why we choose to do certain things, not just our career choices.

I was going to make this a purely Look of the Day post, but then I saw on Flickr this cool location. Since fall is my favorite season, I am always on the lookout for places that are decorated for the season. You can find more about Notting Hill on this post that Elvira made. I will add that you will probably have one more day to visit, if I did my math correctly ^^
When I arrived, it took a bit to rez because of all of the detail on the sim. I loved all the colorful trees and the leaves on the ground, as well as the little areas such as the bike stand and apple stand. The only thing is, I think you would need a computer with superior graphics to truly appreciate the sim. When I got inside the gates, I couldn’t really walk. Riding around for some reason was easier, especially when I dropped my draw distance all the way down.
I started off using the region setting of the sim, but then when I got inside, it seemed too dark. That’s why the lighting seems different in each picture. Overall, I think it’s a great sim, and the lucky people who get to reside there will certainly have fun in Notting Hill!

Hello everyone! Have you all done the Autumn Leaves hunt over at ghee? If you haven’t, you still have time! The hunt started on September 19th, and you have all the way up until November 30th to do the hunt. But why would you wait so long when you can wear some of these items now for only 10L each?
I think it is hard to find quality hunts nowadays in Second Life, but I think there is something for everyone here. Nails, shoes, coats, sweaters, hats – everything you need to look fashionable for this SL season.
The sim that I am on is called Cherry Waves. Sophia Harlow was kind enough to let us explore her sim for a short period of time. If it’s still open, I would go check it out – it has all the elements for what you would want in an autumn sim. I even found the famous coffee shop from 8f8 – one of the popular items from last month’s Arcade ^^
Today I decided to go with minimal makeup for a bare and fresh look. I imagined if it was early in the morning on a typical fall day and it was a lot of mist outside, I probably wouldn’t feel like dressing up too much because of the weather.
See you next time!

Fall into Fall with ghee!
Welcome fall! I have been waiting for a long time (or so it seems) for this season. Cooler weather, warm soups and teas, the upcoming holiday season, pumpkin and butternut squash – the list goes on.
I’ve felt like I lost my blogging mojo – too many things going on last month for me to really get into the vibe. So I am determined to get back on track this month. You know, new beginnings and all of that good stuff. So I looked at the Daily Post for inspiration:
Howl at the Moon
“Follow your inner moonlight; don’t hide the madness.” — Allen Ginsberg
Do you follow Ginsberg’s advice — in your writing and/or in your everyday life?
Well, in my personal writing, I say what I want and how I feel. I find that blogging can be very therapeutic in the process of sharing various things in Second Life with you all. When it comes to academic or professional writing, my goal is to find the balance between expressing myself and giving the boss what she/he wants.
For my every day life, I try to be myself – say how I feel, and mean what I say. Sometimes it’s hard because some people can’t handle sentiments that are not the same as theirs. Or, they read too much into what is being said, and their reactions could cause a person to lose some of their moonlight.
I am wearing an ensemble from ghee that is part of their fall line up. The fall line made its debut at Penumbra’s Fashion Week last month, and there has been a lot of positive feedback on the line. I liked a lot of the line myself, and I hope to share more of it with you guys in the upcoming weeks.
Until next time! ^^
