Tonight, one of my friends and I were talking, and she said this to me: “April showers bring May flowers”. I have always heard that phrase thrown around (especially with April’s crazy weather), but this was the first time it held a different context.
There seems to be something in the air lately. I have seen a lot of bickering among friends – the most recent on social media. And as I talk to the parties involved, and seeing how stressed out the parties are, one word goes through my mind. Why?
I have had my own share of issues, and the feelings that ensued I have not felt in a while, since my RPG Mafia days. In those days, I learned how to work under high pressure situations, because literally things that you said or did could and would result in the end of your game character. At the same time, when I used to read back on old logs and such, I realized how high-strung I was (for me, anyway). I felt like I had to walk on eggshells with some people, because they were a bunch of drama-filled people who were miserable or had no lives outside of the game. The last major interaction I had with one of them was when she second-guessed my RL education…that it “didn’t make sense” to have the degrees that I had. And I was always on the defensive – outside my circle of friends, I always had to watch what I said or else someone would get offended and that could set someone or something off. That and more was eventually why i left that community.
This question was brought to you by the Second Life Friends Facebook group…

Hey guys! I know St Patrick’s Day is over, but I wanted to share with you all the fun time that I had on that day. No, I did not get to go out in RL to celebrate. But there was much fun to be had in SL.
Hey guys! I have noticed that there is a lot of nostalgic feelings about Second Life lately on social media. People are talking about scenic sims that they miss, stores that they miss shopping at, and the like. So I decided to go through some old landmarks and photos to see what I miss in Second Life.
This was a photo that was long overdue for me to blog 🙂
Hey guys! Let’s get right into it – how did I spend my Valentine’s Day in SL?
1. Went to Hug a Linden Day
I wasn’t in the greatest of moods, so I didn’t get to go in the booths where the Lindens were. I also saw that I was too late to send Valentine’s Day messages to people (I think I did last year). But I did get to stand next to Madori Linden ^^
I have always wanted to attend an all- white attire party. There is something about when everyone has on the same color and in formal wear that makes you feel…majestic. Even though everyone may not know each other, we all have something in common. So it makes me happy to announce that The Fashion Loft is finally making my wish come true.
Chop Zuey is raising money for Monkey’s House Dog Hospice to commemorate the Year of the Dog.
100% of It’s A Dog’s Life Charme’ Bracelets will be donated to the Monkey’s House Dog Hospice. There is a donation box as well at the mainstore where you can donate too. This is one of the many things that I like about Chop Zuey – every year they participate in an in-house fundraiser that is not based on an event.

Hey guys! I wanted to wish you all a belated Merry Christmas, and I hope that you are all well during this holiday season. I hurt my thumb on Christmas and since it’s been so cold the past week, I haven’t felt like doing much. So it’s been a push to get everything that I want to get done to close out the year.
Okay – I have decided to show you guys some of the stuff that I have been getting for these Black Friday sales. Shopping is definitely therapeutic. With the exception of Blueberry, it was nice just teleporting from store to store and then walking/camming around to try on and buy items. Second Life residents get all the craziness of Black Friday every time we try to get into a new event round…sometimes I wonder why do we do this to ourselves.
I spoke with one of my cousins in RL and she said that she didn’t feel the need to shop just because it was Black Friday. She has everything she needs, and doesn’t need a lot of stuff. Bath & Body Works had some sales prior to Thanksgiving, so I bought some lotions and hand soaps. Could I had lived without them? Sure. But since I look at their items throughout the year and wonder how a certain scent smells or not willing to pay $15 for an item, then Black Friday (and similar sales) would be the perfect time to get them. The same applies for Second Life. And store owners, take note: If it wasn’t for being able to look at a store’s Flickr stream to see what what they have, I wouldn’t had bought as much stuff.
