Kawaii dances are dances associated with the Japanese “Kawaii” (cute, adorable) culture popularized by J-Pop, Japanese schoolgirls, anime, cosplay. These kawaii dances are freestyled performance-captured by Ally Vega, a professional dance teacher in Los Angeles, CA who has taught and choreographed kawaii dances for Maid Cafe in Tokyo and the Anaheim Anime Expo cosplay shows.
Yes I work every day but as you know I have worked from home since April. But the past two days actually going into the office.
I have learnt something that I didn’t know in this time and conveyed it to a Health and Safety manager colleague today realising why I have a different attitude working from home.
Not only does it help me in terms of how my fibro and back affects me. (That hidden thing that no one appreciates how it feels because if they cant see it, it cant exist)
I realised that I have an issue working amongst people.
No, not because I don’t like them! haha I can hear you laughing saying that now, but that’s not true at all. I really love seeing my colleagues at work when I see them. They’re good souls and its nice because we are so tactile and caring as people with each other.
Its the fact that I realise why I have more an issue , its the background noise of people talking.
I knew I was kind of odd in some ways as over the years I would get slightly irritated when trying to concentrate on something, but I just put it down to pre PMT or some other irrational hormonal thing. At times I can get quite irritated that it can really distract me from something I am doing.
But its actually hit me on the head like a sledgehammer. I like to work in quiet. No background talking distracting me or people walking past stopping to chat etc.
I cant seem to concentrate in that mode. Which makes sense now as often my colleagues can work with headphones in their ears listening to music while they write up work, but I have never been able to ever, because I get agitated and cant concentrate.
And that answers my own question as to why the sound of a telephone ringing can really bother me and I have to answer it.
I mean I cant even walk in a park listening to music as then I cant concentrate at all.
Funny how I have been like this a long time if I think about it, and have just basically discovered within myself why I can get stressed. I just cant bear chatter chatter chatter. Only though when I am in chatter mode.
Maybe I am a freak of nature. Who knows. But I have come home and thought to myself at this age Liz, you finally find out something.
The outfit I am wearing, if you want it, get your skates on as EQUAL10 are changing over for the December round in less than a day to go.
For the Brows and Eyes from A R T E take a nice leisurely teleport and have a good browse. No pun intended. Or, is there?
I finished work not so long ago, and time for another evening bedore tomorrow then the weekend.
I work from home and its great because when I get hot I can wack on the fan, and when I get cold I can wack on a blanket.
Seriously though, today I have felt suddenly like a block of ice, so much so I had to turn on my heating, at 1pm!!! Madness!!
I tend to only have it run first thing in the morning and then a few hours in the evening, unless it snows of course. Basically like most people the cost of gas and bills is increasing and my wages haven’t for years, so now its a case of being careful and just remembering that its unnecessary when there are other ways to get warm.
My mind then started thinking and wondering does this drop suddenly mean we could possibly, even remotely possible acquire a snowflake soon?
I keep checking the weather apps but of course, nothing like that is appearing. Believe me the second it does I will be telling you all.
I popped over to Luanes World and the sim has been transformed from Autumn to Winter all over again. You must stop by and climb to the top of the mountain. There you will find a toboggan and ride all over the place in it.
However don’t repeat my madness and crash into a couple will you.
I head on out in embarrassment.

*****UPDATE THE SIM HAS NOW PUT BAN LINE SUP AND IT APPEARS TRANSFORMING FOR THE WINTER. I AM UNSURE IF IT WILL BE REOPENED TO THE PUBLIC. SO I GUESS THE VIDEO IS YOUR ONLY GLIMPSE OF THE BEAUTY IT WAS****
Im just on my way out the front door as I am off to the cinema to see Frozen 2.
I cant wait.
Before I do here is my Sunday vlog and a chat while exploring Broken in Second Life.

At the moment I am enjoying my character break and just exploring different places in Second Life to film. The girls need a holiday sometimes don’t they.
I find after Halloween and before the Christmas period seems to be a good time for that break and also many sims in Second Life undergo their Autumnal changes to winter over the month of November.
I love the colours of Autumn and I certainly without a shadow of doubt love the pure white of snow.
I know, that dreaded word people hate me uttering.
For me it remains a novelty and to be honest it always will.
I spent a long time never having experienced it and so when it comes either realistically or virtually, I start to get a little excited.
Today come with me to Aradia, a place already in Autumn and getting ready for winter. The sim is a beautiful place and it looks like the houses are there available for rentals if you wanted to check them out.
My guilty pleasure is watching the Step Up films and pretending in my imagination that is me.
I absolutely love the fantasy of the storylines and the dance sequences.
Contemporary dance to me is truly one of the most expressive forms of modern dance. It brings into it other forms of dance such as Jazz, ballet and the modern hip hop we know.
I absolutely love this pack that has been brought into Second Life by Paragon Dance Animations as danced by Madison Cubbage.
I cannot tell you how much I love the way Madison moves and I stare at her and think wow, if only I could really do that.
I can though in Second Life but clearly not in the real world. I mean if I could in the real world, Madison would have to watch out for the competition.
I am lucky when I am making videos for Paragon Dance Animations, I get to always see the original influencers dancing in reality so I can match up the dance sequences for the Paragon videos. I feel like I know all their moves now and I feel fortunate for that opportunity.
Even more exciting to me, is that Madison Cubbage asks for her own copies from me. Now that’s a lovely feeling to know that she approves.
Now for my Isa version as the Paragon version you will see later when Paragon releases it using the virtual Madison.

Earlier I wrote how I’m feeling rough and I had a 4 hour nap and it made me feel better.
Scrap that. It’s after midnight and I’m now awake. Ridiculous.
As I lay here in bed feeling pretty woeful. Sneezing like my head is going to pop off. I thought rather than count sheep (of which there are non).
I would send this blog post out earlier than intended and release the video it goes with.Plus I realise Rosies sim is only open till 1st November. So thought I’d do it now, seeing as I’m eyes wide shut open right now.
