Just a chatty moment

Just a chatty moment

Let’s discuss Rebel Wilson.

I’m a huge fan of hers and have been ever since I first knew her name from Pitch Perfect and then went on to watch all her films.

I find her strong, intelligent, funny and above all so down to earth as an actress and influencer in the world.

I don’t want to see the standard vacuous influencer any more. I want to see the people that reflect real people.

There is more to life for a woman than being the pretty visual.

Hence I admire Rebel greatly because this lady became her own woman without relying on her being a “pretty woman”. She has proven that there is no excuse for women to think that their only path to being somebody is to follow the tits out and flutter the lashes ideal.

You can be simply a woman, use your intelligence and be somebody. Be witty, bigger than life personality and simply just be talented.

In case you are not sold on that, remember Rebel is a lawyer not just an actress.

Never sell yourself short.

In other realms find below Thelmas latest video. Nothing to do with this post but sharing with my readers who would miss it given I didn’t do a blog for it.

Old Harriet went skiing.

On another note. It’s Saturday and I’m still sat here in my pjs. Don’t get me wrong I’ve done housework etc. I just actually need to shower and dress.

But but but, I don’t want to. I just want to curl up on my sofa and watch glorious Christmas films all day. Even though it’s still November here.

There are zillions of Black Friday sales on and I could go online and shop? But seriously do I really need to?

Right now we need to ask ourselves, each time we go to the purchase button, do I need that?

I’m very wary at the moment about my spend because of our current situations. Here in the U.K. people like me who work in the public sector are going to experience a pay freeze. What that really equates to is a pay cut.

People are losing jobs and I’m fully aware more are going to. It’s a pretty bleak look and I keep saying to friends when they go crazy spending, and do you REALLY need that!

My wage literally barely covers my living. It doesn’t allow me much for my own enjoyment and my one thing I use my spare on is my SL hobby and enjoyment. That won’t stop because I believe that I don’t live to work. But that’s it.

So two days ago. Something amazing happened to me. A lovely person purchased and sent me a brand new shiny computer so I can make better videos. I’m totally gobsmacked and in awe. I feel right now really appreciated and I cannot wait to start filming and taking photos with this. I owe him so much and if I could leap on him and hug him I would.

The video is not from the new machine. Though one released in 12 hours from now will be.

Enjoy Harriet.

Enjoy the moment

I’m on a river in the middle of the water.

The sun is shining and life is good. The birds are singing and I’m alone just thinking about my day and what is new to do.

I was tagged in a post on Facebook today about a little house with a fence around it.

Fenced off from the world. Yes that’s me.

In reality enforced and in SL by choice.

It is no secret that I don’t tend to hangout with many people as often I’m just plainly busy. Lack of time is pretty much a huge decision maker as I work full time in reality and of course have to factor in relaxation away from a screen, life and sleep.

Not enough hours in the day you could say. BUT I’m also known as an island.

I tend to sit myself out to sea far away from crowds and love the time I get to just be alone and feel creative in world. I call it my wind down time and god me a very necessary time as often in reality I can become quite pressured.

My perfect SL time is actually either spent alone just dreaming or with a close friend chatting. Now and then I brace the social side but on the whole I’m an “island in the vast sea”.

Today I’m just a girl in a boat dreaming.

Throw out the old

Throw out the old

It’s Tuesday and another day.

It isn’t such a great week and I doubt it will get any better at the moment.

I have up and down days and today has been one of those down days. I’m not alone, many of us are having these.

I’m questioning the importance of what we hold as important and weighing up if there are things I need to ditch because they no longer fit.

What you may ask? Now that would be a long night if I were to sit here prattling on about it all.

Fact is I’ve been learning what’s important and what is not. Who is important and who is not.

You know the old searching for the meaning of yada yada yada.

I didn’t know where to start so I made a fleeting gesture. I deleted all links to the past of my avatar by destroying my long held group Cheren Estates.

It’s the group I held for nearly ten years of my SL life. I ejected the lot and then removed myself. It’s 2020 and we soon go into 2021 and new chapters need to start.

Call it like a room clean. Next will be the inventory purge of thousands of items that frankly I don’t need.

Next it’s the friends list of people who frankly I really have no darn idea who the heck many of them are. I kid you not!!

So many name changes later I have no idea who half the names on my friend list are. Plus I don’t have time to find out either.

Really, so little time and if we haven’t communicated in the past 12 months then they’re not friends are they. They’re strangers.

As for reality there is also some purging to be done as well.

2021 I plan many new things for myself and the main thing is unshackling myself from things that actually hold no relevance any longer. Even people.

Life’s far too short to hold onto things when we have so much ahead to achieve. It’s good for the soul to give yourself freshness in life. So that’s what I’m going to do.

It’s not all black and white

It’s not all black and white

I’m currently in reality sat here with my hair in my hair towel and just fiddling with my phone. Yup, living the dream as the saying goes.

Not really. My dream would be right now on a warm day sat on a beach, the sun beating down and enjoying a day out with family and friends close together. Laughter, smiles, good food and nothing to worry about.

Reality is I’m sat here, it’s mid November and I’ve been at home for nearly 8 months. Going out and about in a very limited way and mainly to stock up or get some small amount of excercise.

The sun is not shining and the sky is grey.

My health is at odds with it all and fact is, I’m still going to smile. I’m alive and I have food on my table and life still will go on.

Tomorrow is always another day and we can sit and look at all the negatives if we choose to. Or we can look at our positives and look forward to the next day.

Why am I writing this? Because even I need to remind myself that every day is a good day, even though it doesn’t match what my expectation may have been.

Life is not all black and white. It’s full of many shades.

So you know the reality from the pictured

On we go

On we go

Welcome to another week of life!!! Leap out of bed and celebrate that your alive, even if you feel stuck in lockdown.

I’ll be honest my leap is pretty low and my landing sounds like a herd of cattle rampaging past.

Anyone else find they cannot stop eating this year? Seriously it’s like I’m a bear who needs to eat so I can hibernate.

In saying that pretty soon I won’t be able to drag my extra lard around and I’ll end up turning into the flotation device when the next great flood comes. Or I’m chow for the rabid dogs when the next ice age rolls over

Most people I know are saying similar things and I’m glad I’m not that alone in this because food and me are not good friends. We are lovers!!!

Still in my pretend existence, I’m lithe and athletic and can dance like the professionals. I’ll have that!

Have a great day and it’s never as bad as you think. ❤️

Sunday bliss

Sunday bliss

Happy Sunday and it’s not snowing here in reality. It’s just rain, rain and more rain.

I was up last night till stupid o’clock and I really don’t know why. Ok I do, I’m trying to change the region I live on to a snow one.

Every year I change my little homes and use all the prims in the world to make my home for the winter. This year I have region control and I really seriously have not a clue what I’m doing.

I stupidly assumed you pop the textures in and hey presto you have a snow region and an ice lake!!! Clearly not. I have icy sea and you can’t skate on it. You sink.

If anyone has any idea how the sea changes to a lake? Asking for a friend. 😳

In the meantime I released my visit to snow drops which is truly beautiful.

The snowboarding is so much fun and you really need to try it sometime.

Another day, another dollar as the saying goes.

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.

Look at me

What a start

What a start

As I flick through my magazine I ponder today. Today is Monday and it’s not a great day. The week has started so bad and to be honest I really want to curl up in a corner and just pretend it hasn’t happened yet. Maybe rock back and forth and howl a bit too.

I made a mistake at work today which I could kick myself hard for. It was a simple mistake that any human under stress could make.

Then of course there was the message I sent to a colleague which was fun and tongue in cheek asking why she wasn’t at work and joking she was having a jolly good time. Turns out her dad died last week. Something a few people knew but wasn’t shared and so I stuck my size 6’s in and made things just that much more worse. Do I feel bad right now? Yes very much so.

Then it was the flu jab. I’m sure that will hurt tomorrow.

Then I learnt tonight an old work colleague took his life around 2 weeks ago. Far too young and a whole life laid ahead he should have lived still.

This is life. It’s not a fantasy. So let me find a nice tree to lay under while I contemplate tomorrow being any better.

Mmmm K my KPop

Mmmm K my KPop

I actually kinda feel these dances and I’d say because they’re so positively cute and fun.

Right now I really embrace the distraction of fun and I’m not averse to featuring dances over and over again when I feel them.

Today the world feels a little different with the last 24 hours and either way whatever you believe or wanted it’s really dumb to trash others views. ie the truly toxic insults I’ve been seeing hurled around Facebook in both my rl and my virtual realms.

Let’s face it that dude is a meme that keeps on giving but that’s him. He has always been that meme.

Hating on each other is pretty toxic and petty and really aren’t we all allowed in our democratic world to have freedom of thought and expression? That doesn’t mean to freely bestow hatred because of peoples choices or political leanings. Smile then move on.

Winners or losers. It’s about being good humans and accepting we don’t all agree in this world.

Wouldn’t it be a really dull place if we did? Enjoy the memes but forgive the rights to have choice.

Win or lose well and carry on. Our virtual worlds are a place to drop this and forgive and just crack on with friendship.

Now enjoy this video because I certainly felt it.
