Some days I just wonder if the universe has its head screwed on right. I’m sure it doesn’t.
It’s a difficult thing when you realise that your heart is a lot more fragile than you first thought.
On the whole those that do know me, know I avoid SL relationships like the plague. It was never my intention to want to meet someone in there and develop any feelings. After all, why would or should I live a pretense when in my RL I am free and single to do as I please.
My motto has always therefore been if you can’t cross into a reality then we can’t really have a virtuality. It’s just wasted time and life is too short.
Yet lately I have spoken to a few people who explain to me that their SL relationships are simply that, SL.
Yet I know when those relationships fail they get hurt too. Go figure.
I’m in intense like with someone and they don’t even know it or rather acknowledge it. It doesn’t matter to them and it isn’t important either. So, what do I do with those feelings? Do I put them in the closet and pretend they don’t exist or do I acknowledge they exist, feel the hurt and just move on?
Because after all it’s only SL…….
I guess pixel clothes are like a RL persons chocolate fix.
Mine tells me I’ve just come walking out of the surf, sun on my skin and board under one arm. Yes, I’m awake.
This post has nothing to do with surfboards but if it did, I’m there.
Last night I made an executive decision that I would absolutely remove and block everyone from RL Facebook associated with my work place.
It’s not an easy decision but I think with how things are these days no matter how great mates you are with someone at work, the facts are your personal life is less when you mix the equation with work.
Also our organisation has just updated its policies with its “apparent rights” to view your Facebook posts as a reflection on the organisation.
So in my mind, the most logical thing is the lockdown of that privacy. That’s not just removing them, but blocking at the same time.
Terribly sad in this day and age that you have to consider this but, lets face it we all value our privacy. Especially me who had two huge data breaches happen in the last year. One I’m still in negotiations with for what they did. The other was the hacking I had which compromised my online life.
For those of us in the virtual world in our alternate lives I think we value our privacy two fold and on different levels.
I think these days I prefer my virtual social media above the RL one. Go figure.
I’m sure if this photo of me in the latest I love you tattoo was in my RL, the conversations would be interesting.
I’ve just woken up and frankly I do not wish to move.
Have the beginnings of a cold and that feeling of aching and the nose wanting to detach itself from the rest of me.
I could ring in sick but as most of my team are either off sick or on leave that would leave one person on their own.
If I’m well enough to write this then I may as well sit at my desk and appear.
I know right, such a soldier of work ethic.
I loved the outfit here when I put it on. Simply because the t shirt hud had the funniest motifs and yet the look is quite cool and edgy. Just made me chuckle as I do like a little twist to what’s expected.
Given a choice today, this is where I would like to be in the real world. Sadly as I stare out the window its one of those days we call pyjama days as frankly its not inviting to go out.
So today in my world its officially Pyjama Day!! Also a day I will spend on SL and unpacking blog boxes as I like to organise my virtual closet.
Don’t worry I have had a shower. I just love to hang about in that kind of Pyjasma look. I am actually wearing a onesie in RL and believe me, if you saw it you would choke on your coffee right now.
I look like a floating white and shocking pink marshmallow. The vision to behold and when my doorbell went a few moments ago to deliver an Amazon package, I do think that dude is now scarred for life!!
So just picture me like I am in the video below and you will be safe .
