My Retreat

Watching flurries outside the window

Hey guys! There’s been a lot going on lately, with RL (classes have started again) and SL. I was happy to have been asked to do some consulting for a new fitted mesh breasts brand (yay!). Also, after what seems like months (really weeks, but SL time moves quickly as we all know), my boyfriend has been able to come back inworld so now we are making arrangements to live together. But first, he had the idea of going to a winter retreat for a week. He’s good at finding places to visit 🙂

Our winter cottage @ KAMRAIN Properties

From what we saw as we were looking, Kamrain Properties has houses for rent anywhere from 550L to 1250L a week. This is just for the winter houses – they have summer ones as well. Most are furnished, and some are not. For instance, there was a beautiful house that was I think 1k L a week with 333 prims. But I didn’t want to furnish it – it’s a vacation, not a permanent residence. The house we are staying in is 850L for 40 prims. But to tell you the truth, I haven’t felt the need to take anything out of my suitcase except my clothes.

I have noticed lately that there are a number of people who are feeling stressed, just by reading various SL social media sites. Bloggers feel the need to attend all of the events and blog all of the things. Designers are not only striving to maintain and improve their products, but they have to do this while meeting the needs of all of the various events in SL. Club owners I feel always feel some sort of stress because there is always something  happening that can possibly take away from visitors having a good time at the club. And of course, there is always issues that come up in relationships (friend or intimate) that can threaten the peace. In my observations, some people have decided to take a break, and others are starting to suffer either mentally or physically.

One of the reasons why some of us get stressed is because it is easy to get involved in various projects in SL – that is if you know where to look. As we pile on project after project, all the individual stressors take their toll on us mentally. I think this is why I feel like I don’t have anything to blog, even though I can look on my to-do list and find that there are plenty of topics that I can blog about. When this happens, I try to talk about something that’s happening with me right now to break out of feeling this way.

One thing that I learned while being on vacation is that I definitely need more winter clothing. I decided to wear one of my favorite outfits on my first day.

Shirt & vest: Paradisis
Leggings: coldLogic
Boots: Maitreya
Other items: Hair – Emo-tions; Skin – Glam Affair; Glasses – Armidi

 

I think I’m going to get back to relaxing – I feel better already! 🙂

Take care for now, and stay tuned!
