I’m really enjoying getting back into the blogging swing of things after taking a few days off to work on One Billion Rising. Thank you to everyone who came along or shared posts here and on Facebook! We’re already starting to plan for next years event that will be even bigger and better than this years I’m sure! I’m looking forward to it already but I have lots of other things coming up in the next 12 months already planned too. So watch this space.
I saw a meme on Facebook that I shared earlier today which talked about women with ‘insane work ethics’ and I’m told that I fall into that category. The meme was positive about women who work hard and dream big, implying that it should be a character trait that men hold dear when considering whether a woman was right for them. This made me a giggle a bit. I’ve always had a strong work ethic for reasons that I have discussed here in my blog about my childhood. But, the reason I drive myself so hard in SL has been a consequence of having an awful experience with an SL relationship and throwing myself into work to recover. In the few times I’ve dated since I’ve never really felt like my work ethic has been something that has been seen as a bonus by the guy (with one exception and he’s probably reading this now and wondering if he’s the exception so for his benefit…yes you are). In the majority of cases if I haven’t answered an IM in time, or can’t go do something when they want to it’s rarely met with happiness and an appreciation of my drive to work. I enjoy my work, it’s fulfilling and fun and I’m pretty good at it and it’s not going to change anytime soon and it’s a sacrifice I’ll always make to be living my SL the way I want to.
About the Stuff:
Lots of new items in the post today and I think this new necklace from RealEvil is today adorbs! There are two versions available at the latest round of Cosmopolitan. I’m wearing the watch person but there is also a version that you can change to a photograph of someone special, or yourself or you favourite kittycat! The watch is a working watch and you can change the timezones and set the clock accordingly as well as changing the metal textures and the face textures via the hud.
The dress is new from E-Clipse Design at Tres Chic. It’s a warm and cozy dress but of course has added E-Clipse sexiness added in with a sweeping back down to the curve of the butt and a strapped fabric boob cover. There are multiple colours available and it comes in fits for Belleza Isis and Freya, Slink Hourglass and Original and Maitreya Lara (worn).
