Thank God it’s Friday

Thank God it’s Friday

I love giving snippets of new life at mine and Rosie Helendale’s new joint sim. Namaste in Los Angeles.

Be it a picture or a video, the snippets are small.

Amazingly 3 out of 4 rentals have already gone and people moved in, before we have even opened.

Now that’s quite something.

I really cannot wait to share with you.

In fact since this picture was taken, so much has changed.

We are happy with the little world we have created and what will be a lovely small community to hang out in.

Rosie has done the majority of the landscaping and I have just thrown in the materials and houses . Between us we are now landladies to a new home that will be both for pleasure and residence.

So while I lazily sip my tea on the patio, I bid you a Thank god it’s Friday!!!

#SLIsolationWorkout Challenge

#SLIsolationWorkout Challenge

During the current crisis around the world, Thelma has made a decision she not only needs to keep herself fit but she also has to influence others to join her. Thelma is now a Social Influencer!!

She has created the #SLIsolationWorkout challenge.

Sharing on all social media to get all our virtual world self isolators into the challenge and doing fun things to smile and feel better.

So the challenge has no prize. It simply is about everyone coming together to bring a smile and show the world that there is more to life than our feeling sad and despondent about our situations. We are after all , ALL in this together.

Simply, create a video, photo, meme made in Second Life or even Sansar and tag it #SLIsolationWorkout

Lets have some fun and just make people smile and lift each other up rather than fall.

If you are feeling giving you can also donate to the  World Health Organization to help gain aid for people who are not as fortunate as many of us are to COVID-19 Response Fund in order to get essential equipment out.

Find charities in your local countries via your health organisations to aid toward donating blood and funds as well.

Remember, social distancing and make sure you follow the guidelines of washing hands, not touching your face when out in public and where you can wear a mask if you are in busy areas. Those are not hard to make yourself. It doesn’t matter how silly you feel, its better to be alive  than embarrassed.

Now enjoy the video…..

Good morning all you lovely people.

You thought I was going to break out into song didn’t you?!

I had no sleep, my bedrooms a catastrophe, I have STUFF everywhere! I mean everywhere.

No time this week for much virtual videos etc because yesterday my new housemate moved in.

All went well but we both have our bedrooms full of stuff to sort through.

I have no idea where to even begin. None whatsoever.

You have to remember another woman means double up of the stuff already here. So we will be arranging bits and reorganising in the upcoming days, maybe weeks, or in my case

If you could miracle me a magical cupboard I’d appreciate that.

In the meantime can someone send me a sneaky milkshake?

I’m serious, I have a craving for an icy cold creamy vanilla milkshake.

Washed up and middle aged

Washed up and Middle Aged

I had a comment put on  my one YouTube video yesterday which really made me chuckle.

The comment said and I quote “Why do middle aged, washed up,  unattractive and overweight women in this game represent themselves as being young and attractive”.

Im guessing that was a personal dig/comment aimed at me. I mean  I  could assume it was aimed at someone else but as it was put under one of my videos then it was aimed at me.

Why did it make me chuckle. Let me tell you. I have regularly received such hateful remarks and as frustrated as I could get over them and feel the need to dramatically exit doing my thing, I choose not to.

I choose to swim against the tide and make no doubt about it, I am a strong swimmer despite the awful hateful things I get called.

You see, I am not easily bullied,  that I feel I need to leave because one persons perception of me along with their cronies is to “encourage me” by regularly passing insult. I can get hurt yes, but it lasts moments.

A great guy said this to me. “Behind every troll there is an insecure, sleep deprived, ugly hating  soul. Their sole existence is  about hating others in order to make themselves feel better about themselves, yet deep down, they do not ever reach that better feeling.”

Sadly in the Vlogger/Blogger community part of Second Life there is this competitive negative force and people feel the need to behave in ways they deep down know they wouldn’t or shouldn’t ordinarily. That competitiveness is destructive and not community based.

Yet behind the keyboard these people turn into playground bullies and think it is ok to behave so.

I grew up in an era of the saying “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never harm me” For me, that is very true. They hurt, but I forget a day later.

But for others the harm can be real. If you are one of these soul destroyed people who feels the need to behave so in order to either boost yourself or ingratiate yourself to someone else. Stop and think.

The words that you spout on social media, has direct impact and can very much harm a person and you would be responsible.

But I need to add to  that person who follows me to pop the dislikes regularly and the insulting comments via their alternate YouTube accounts and their cronies. Last time I checked myself out in the mirror, I am neither washed up, unattractive or hugely overweight. Yes I am middle aged, I own that. But believe me, you will get there one day too!

I am a professional in real  life, I have qualifications, I have a family, I have children who have great careers and I have a grandson and I have great close friends.

I also have a past of fighting against abuse and bullies for being the person I am and for how I have looked. I was a model back in the day and because of how I looked I suffered a great deal of bullying from that part of life and sexist behaviour’s from a male dominated work force.

In my virtual world, I can be who I want to be. So if I want to be a lithe blonde then I will be a lithe blonde, If I want to be Chubby Marika, then I will be. If I want to be a buxom Thelma, then that is who I will be. Harriet, I will be her any day.

After all it is my Second Life and I will do as I please because I pay my way to be here.

If any of my readers find themselves in this situation, I want you to know I am soon to create something that I believe will help all the people who are feeling bullied, trolled, made to feel not good enough etc.

As a community, we need to stand up and say hell no to all the bullies.

Flickr has a mind of its own

So this blog I was due to do later today and I just discovered when looking at my flickr app on my phone, it decided to make itself public. How very dare it?!!!

Goes to show Flickr still has some issues and despite us paying a monthly or annual cost they need to really up their gain as this is not cool. Or was it the guys in the photo who wanted to be seen asap?

Who knows. I’m not able to do my investigating till later, but investigate I shall  when I land on my pc! Shame on Flickr, shame on them!

I need a lift

I need a lift

I need a lift to awake my soul right now.

It’s 1.34 pm here in the UK as I write this. I woke up about 15 minutes ago after a marathon sleep that my body clearly needed.

Exhaustion sometimes takes us by surprise and lately it has hit me like a sledgehammer.

I’ve been exhausted for quite a while now and constantly keeping myself running on my invisible treadmill for fear that if I stop and give in. This could mean a permanent life change.

To some that may sound incredibly ridiculous but to others that know how our own health issues and inner demons affect us, will understand and appreciate.

I am literally exhausted and with all the life worries that I have tumbling around in my head, I have to try and balance them. One accidental movement and the mountain could fall.

I think that’s the best way to describe exhaustion for me right now.

It’s a state of mind and a physical impact. What could change it? I don’t know. But what I do know right now, is that juggling has become my new skill.

I’ve woken up after 13 hours sleep. No more rested than I was before. Go figure.

Let the flowers commence

Let the flowers commence

I’ve just popped to the shops and the sun was shining and I was quite chuffed that it looked like it’s going to be a jolly sunny day.

Well that was short lived. Clouds are suddenly in abundance.

My sunny outlook will remain in my mind as today is Friday and it means it’s nearly the WEEKEND!!!

I hope you all have a great day. The sun may not be shining for real, but my cheesy smile in this photo should remind you, it’s as sunny as we want it to be.
