Why I Wear Blue

Be Kind

I would like to share with you all something that happened recently in one of the groups I am in. A moderator shared an Amber alert for a missing child in New York with the rest of the group via group notices. Now, was it the best place to share (was not a content creator group, but special interests group)? Probably not. But the comments that took place after that made me wonder why some people felt justified to be condescending and mean. I even wrote in the group, “Which is easier to do – ignore something that doesn’t pertain to you, or make a bunch of comments complaining about it?” I reached out to the person who was practically getting attacked, but I had to step away before I received a response.

By the time that I got back, he had told me (and the group chat) that he would be leaving, and he was pulling sponsorship of his store from all of the group’s activities. “and your reactions have made me decide im done forever with ****, no more sponsoring events, no more parties, and no more ***** discount. Im done trying to help people in rl or sl”.  Scenarios like this one is why I have in my inworld profile, “Do you want to be right, or do what’s right? Be the change you would like to see in the world.” There was absolutely no reason why the group conversation had to go the way it did, except that people thought they were doing the right thing by berating the person for putting the information in the group.

My Black Friday Finds

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.

The Day After Thanksgiving

Hey guys! For those who celebrated Thanksgiving yesterday, I hope everyone was able to eat their favorite foods and reconnect with their loved ones. Yesterday was a good day for me, and I will be eating Thanksgiving leftovers for several days – yes, I already know lol.

Today I visited La Vie to take some photos. It’s a nice sim to visit if you are looking for fall scenery. I wore my outfit from Ghee, which can be found at 68 Main. The round ends tomorrow, so you should go check it out!
