Have you ever felt so exhausted that you really feel you could sleep forever?
That’s me right now.
I go to bed each night, sleep, wake up, work and repeat. Same thing I’ve done for many years.
Just lately though it feels like my sleep never existed and those hours in bed never happened.
Today I woke up as normal for work, had breakfast, drank my tea and started work. The difference was that exhaustion was in a whole new level and I knew I couldn’t sit there and work. It was like the brain stopped functioning and I needed to sleep.
So, for the first time in my life, I took a day off to sleep. Purely and totally just to go back to bed and rest.
I woke up again 15 minutes ago and I can honestly say that was the best thing for me.
I still feel exhausted but I feel better for it. Now what to do with the rest of my day!
I’m celebrating the end of the week now. By the time it does come I’ll be so tired that I need a nap!
Honestly the past two weeks have been so full on that I look forward to the weekends just to sleep. Yes sleep!
So when Hump day comes along, Im feeling that the ride to Friday is all the way downhill to my comfy place. aka the bed.
This week is a hectic week as Rosie and I have ended the home we created. Sadly a club has moved in next door and no matter the amount of lowering VRAM that was done on our side trying to make it less laggy, when someone else comes in, its like you are fighting back in the treacle.
So the result is, Rosie got her own homestead and I have moved to another homestead with a friend.
Ive made a little home and just finishing it off and dragged one of my tenants with who has his own little island now and made sure he has all the privacy in the world.
So that may be my first video this weekend just to show you the move and what I left.
Rosie has amazing landscaping skills she needs to utilise.
Id always say if you have some spot that needs some assistance to landscape, ask Rosie!
I’m into week 3.5 or is it 4 of my social experiment about face filters and how they really are cunning little things.
I say little because they come via a phone app or a camera nowadays.
The drastic differences to your appearance can be pretty shocking but even more so the concern as to how vulnerable as a human you can feel if you were to compare yourself to some of the imagery you see via such social apps as Instagram and YouTube.
I’ve certainly become quite observant now of anyone who appears on my social media that looks good. When I say good I mean with pore-less skin and looking more youthful than logic says they would.
Imagery that is not true to aspire to.
However here in Second Life, we can be whoever we want to be. Because we all understand that we are real people on the other side.
As a woman who has always questioned why in life. I am right now asking why why why do we every single month have to go through that feeling of mood swings, bloating, stomach pain and let the list go on. Why?
We simply have no choice, well some of us. Others are lucky to not have that experience each month and in my next life I want to sample being one of them.
I’m 54 years old and I’m sure menopause is in transition right now. But, whilst that is happening I still get all the feelings of being 13 again when I used to disappear to the medical room at school and lay down.
I guess that’s life and it’s the way it is. But why????
Now on that note enjoy your Saturday and don’t eat all the donuts.
I seriously kid you not when I say I’ve spent a good part of my day with blurred vision which meant I really couldn’t see much.
I had some eye tests in the morning and had that stuff put into my eyes that stings like hell and then makes you struggle to focus. Oh and you feel like a vampire as the daylight is so strong you want to run back inside. That’s been me.
I logged in to my work after and my god that was just the worst struggle ever.
I literally had my computer screen right in front of my face so I could try and see. Logged off in the end as there was no point.
Had a nap and now way better.
Can I say, it gave me an indication of what it must be like to lose your sight, or rather be struggling to see.
It’s not nice or easy and frankly I’m very grateful I have the ability to see. To go through life seeing but not seeing must be incredibly difficult for anyone in that position. So yes sight and sound I value above everything in my abilities. Oh and my voice too.
I get my results in about 1-2 weeks. So yeah. That was my day.
It’s nearly 7 pm here in the UK and I’m back to normal. Shall continue to chill and tomorrow it’s back to work, repeat.
Check out my whole look and I’m sure you will agree I need to be seen.
