I visited Bridges by Cica Ghost and of course made a video.
It’s not really something many care to watch, destination videos. However I love to film because many destinations don’t last the lifetime and disappear. It’s my way of showcasing some of the amazing places to visit in second Life and preserving them in visual form, to be seen way after they disappear.
Call it a catalogue of memories.

The secret to feeling good is how you greet yourself in the morning. Your attitude to yourself and how you treat you.
I have been moving into a slump the past few months. (Im not out if it by any means) but I’m working on it.
There are many reasons for my slump. The main being what’s happening in the world and my fear of the things we appear to be losing as a result. Worry about our futures but also mine personally.
I kind of started to slowly sink into it, like I’m sure many of you out there may be doing. Being stuck at home and the constant monotony of our current existence. The losing the desire to dress up or even care about things that we place as important on a daily basis.
However I have come to realise when you give into that, you start to lose that feeling of how you do matter and you are important. Your sense of self worth.
Where is she going with this long winded set of sentences I hear you chiming.
I realise that actually what we should be doing is indeed doing the things that can make us feel good even though our movements are limited.
Starting off with that look in the mirror first thing in the morning. You know the one. Where you see yourself and say oh Jesus in your heads.
Instead you need to look at yourself and really see beyond that at who you are and how much you matter. Then treat yourself in that way. Treat you like every day is a good day and you are greeting the world.
Put your best smile forward, brush those teeth and dress as you would have been prior to all this nonsense.
So every day I am practising this, getting back into habit and it does make a difference.
Don’t get me wrong it’s not perfect by any means, but it’s certainly way better than allowing myself to slip into a depression.
Happy Monday and welcome to another week of wondering what the next week will bring.
The cycle seems to be pretty standard now and I’m thinking I somehow need to mix it up a little. Quite possibly I may turn into a hamster with giant sized cheeks going slowly on my wheel of misfortune.
You can look at it like we are stuck at a gate and we just need to loosen the hinges with some oil before we can pop on through to the “other side”.
Either way this year truly does suck a lot doesn’t it?
I’m sure Borats version of Covid is the right one.
If you haven’t seen the film, please do. Forget your politically correct ways and enjoy it for what it is. It will make you laugh out loud and forget that you wondered what happens next in life.
Last night I sat dying of laughter to the point I literally could have wet myself with the dry wit.
On another note. I made a formal announcement on YouTube today. Like I think I already did it but I made the formal one today. Feel free to go there if you want to see. Failing that, go shopping,
No really go watch
I missed my own premier!!! Yes way!!! Union call can you believe it. 😂🤣
It’s Wednesday and for me it’s a struggle of week.
To be honest it usually is of late for one reason or another and that’s just how it is in the current climate. Today after a rather eventual night I decided I really need a break. A complete detach where I don’t get up and start work.
I decided to treat myself to a day off on Friday and see if I can realign my Chakras or at the very least, relax and see a friend or two.
Though I’ve not made arrangements either as I want to just let my day flow.
Last night at 2 am was really my last straw. My bed broke!
Yep you read that correctly the base slats which were a previous repair job suddenly caved in and my mattress took me to a place I really didn’t fancy being in. The hollow of the netherworlds under my bed. God knows what ner dwellers live there but I came back up again.
To be honest it’s really the last thing I needed right now given cash is a little tight these days and I’m trying to get used to downsizing life in preparation for let’s face it pending recession.
So, my decision is….
I’m going to ditch the bed and put the mattress on the floor and turn all Japanese . Why not!
The only thing my daughter did point out was would I be able to get up . Cheek of it!!! So today I’m Dolores my Kalhene avatar. (That’s my nickname for her).
I tried a live stream last minute on Saturday night which was very nerve wracking for me. The whole be real in the video and live. I was fine if I didn’t look at the stream but the minute I did it was OMG cringe time as I’m not keen to look at myself.
I’m basically trying to get used to this whole becoming a product ambassador thing and advertising myself as a positive by product of the product.
Although I have been one to attempt live streams I am not as comfortable as maybe I may appear doing them. I suffer with great nerves and moments of self doubt which I’m guessing is quite normal.
A friend asked didn’t I think of getting all dressed up and putting some make up on? Hell no. Why should I? I really don’t do that as the norm so to do that would feel very unnatural to me.
I could have made more effort at looking like those atypical gamer girls types with my makeup on etc etc but frankly I prefer to be real at all times. The reality is I’m 54 and not getting younger and having my boobs at attention seems disingenuous as frankly what would the viewers be really looking to watch? Saggy old boobies that need a good harness to keep them upright?
Actually I can never understand why gamer girls do dress like that. I’d be so proud to see a woman get up and live stream dressed in her trackies and baggy T-shirt like us normal folk. It’s 2020 and I do feel disappointed that women still use sexuality to obtain their base.
It’s a thing I see a lot of and in many ways puts us back in terms of being accepted and respected for what we can do as women.
But, to each their own. If it rocks your world to see then rock on.
That’s what I actually pictured in my head doing this photo but then things came to my attention and for some reason it seemed quite fitting.
I’m not referring to a certain event in this blog as frankly I do not wish to taint the gorgeousness of this outfit nor this lovely creator, but I will say I work with a number of creators and events managers who behave in a very professional fair way. If I have ever had issue believe me I wont let it sit I deal with it. So those that I blog for I appreciate with all my heart for their professionalism.
I have removed the video as I was approached by the person this affects to do so and because I value this person as I do I have done so. . Is it gone. No it sits on my hardrive.
I will be discussing the issues surrounding copyright etc and will liaise with other vloggers and long time bloggers on this for the benefit of all the bloggers and vloggers out there.
Let me say to you all now. If you are having issues in Second Life and feel you are pushed into a corner and have to jump two foot higher than you realistically need to.
You dont! Reach out to me and I will happily talk to you and offer some advice. At the end of the day no one ever needs to feel pushed into any corners because of any reason in this virtual world
You have rights in reality and you have rights in virtual reality.
I leave the blank video down below as a reminder that my words were very loud and clear in that video.
