Bring It On

bring-it

Have you noticed how people who say ‘I don’t do drama’, especially on their profiles in Second Life are always the people that live and breathe for it. Now we all have a bit of drama come our way from time to time and most people will try and minimise the impact, keep their head down, ride it out and move on…like, oh I dunno, grown ups! Most of us don’t revel in it when we’re close to it that’s for sure.

Several years ago I had the misfortune of standing up to an online bully. The proverbial sad little man in real life who considered himself a keyboard warrior and managed to convince a band of sheep to follow him under the guise of a Second Life Motorcycle Club. They spent weeks and months trying to ruin my business and get a reaction that they wanted from me. They failed on both counts. I didn’t go looking for that fight but I didn’t back down from it either. My SL has gone from strength to strength while they fell apart and drifted off.

I believed in myself and that I was doing the right thing and I will always stand up for that against anyone that wants to try and bully or manipulate me into taking actions or making decisions that I don’t believe in.

About the Stuff:

United Colors has been a very busy brand over the last couple of weeks producing a number of items for different events that all work together in unison. The hood and drape I’m wearing is available at Tres Chic and comes in fits for Belleza Freya and Isis, Slink Hourglass and Physique and Maitreya Lara (worn).  Available in plain colours or with a texture on the hoodie itself if fits perfectly, as you would expect over another United Colors item…the crop top and panties which are available at Whore Couture (which also come in the same body fits).

The boots are also from United Colors and are available at Kustom 9. I’m wearing them full length but you essentially are getting 4 boots in one as you can change the length of the boots via the included hud. It’s the extras like that, and the range of fits, that really do make United Colors one of the best stores around for range, fit and value.

    Adore this article… been through ‘same shit, diff trolls’ in my earlier days of SL.They slated my work as I was learning, and took offence to my ‘too nice’ personality! Like you, I adore my SL, I have amazing friends, I’ve learnt many skills, and I always stand up for what I believe in. All trolls have is a keyboard, a shitty SL and the need to slate someone else to make them feel better.*Shares the winner trophy with you* :p x
