I Wanna Live in a House, a very Big House in the Country

So I bought myself a larger house than I usually go for. I love decorating so I’m half excited at the thrill of digging through my inventory and unearthing some buried treasures now I have space for them and half nervous of the time it’s going to take me to get going. The great thing…

These are a Few of My Favourite Things

I’m having one of those days when it’s difficult to know what to talk about. I prepare the blog, credits and pictures for my post days in advance and then write about what’s on my mind on the day I post it. However, I am also trying not to be too political in my posts…

Why I Rise for One Billion Rising and How You Can Too

“I don’t come to Second Life for politics” I’ve read that a lot over the last 2 years on Facebook or other social media forums. I agree! To a point! For those of us that spend a lot of hours here though I think it has to be about more than shopping, adjusting our cheekbones…

Senses Working Overtime

It’s been one of those questions round a dinner party table…If you had to lose one sense out of sight or hearing which would you choose? I’ll state right now that my preference if put in that position would be to lose my sight. I adore sound. I love music…I couldn’t bear the thought of…

Eat, Sleep, Rest, Repeat

I’m looking forward to three wonderful days away from SL from tomorrow! Now, this is unusual because I’m quite the SL addict and in the past when I’ve gone away in real life I’ve always been a little bit anxious about how to stay in touch and find ways to get a fix of SL…

The Person You Should Value Most Can Be Seen In the Mirror

Writing a blog where you talk openly about your thoughts and feelings can be like walking a tightrope sometimes. I know there are people that might read a post that is about them or about a situation involving them. That said, this blog was started as a place for me to write about those elements…

New Additions at TaKe Heart

Over the last week or so I’ve been working on a freshen up of my sim, TaKe Heart. I’m so over winter weather in both lives and while I have to put up with it a wee bit longer in real life there is absolutely no reason to in Second Life right? I decided to…

You Can’t Always Get What You Want

But if you try sometimes, well, you just might find, that you get what you need. That song lyric has been in my head for a couple of weeks now because it’s really resonating with me and how I approach certain aspects of my Second Life. ¬†For me, the joy of meeting new people and…

Choose your Battles

My battles over the last few days have been against myself. Feeling grumpy and moody (honestly I know I’m a woman n stuff but that’s really not like me) and struggling with a need to sleep versus a desire to keep myself busy til crazy hours of the morning. Nothing bad had happened to put…

Laying the Groundwork

Time for change! I don’t really feel like I achieved very much over the weekend. Certainly not the amount of work I had planned to get completed anyways! I did start a fairly significant overhaul of my sim. I don’t know about you but I am so over snow now and I found myself trying…

That Girl is Awesome

I suspect that many of us have all had a little giggle at times when we’ve read a profile or a pick about family or friends stating things like ‘If you hurt them I will track you down and hurt you’ or some other such ridiculous threat. You have to wonder what is going through…

All The Little Things

Being nice can sound so dull at first glance because the word ‘nice’ is so mediocre. Being a nice person can lead to people feeling amazing though. My friend Corban wrote on his blog today about how he had bought a coffee for a busker outside a coffee shop in the freezing cold. It was…
