I am just giving you a calendar update because im quite helpful like that. Also to let you know that this is todays advent calendar goodie from Entice. So pop on over as freebies are a dream arent they.
I do love a freebie and Christmas goodies are the best. Sadly the only place we get them is in our virtual lives because reality is not so kind.
If we are honest, reality puts the prices up then lowers them back down again and we are deluded into the false premise we nabbed ourselves a bargain.
Enjoy the virtual free gifts and make sure in reality you check their “discounts”.

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.

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.
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.

I do love it when I get the chance to hang out with people that I don’t often get the chance to. Time differences and also the real fact that my SL time is spent very busy doing things for blogs or videos for myself or others.
To be honest that is how I like it. My virtual time is a great release to me of reality and it’s negatives and keeping mentally busy suits me well.

Are you into Halloween? I’m not really at all as I’ve said previously. Only virtually as that’s enough for me.
So many of the films associated with Halloween are basically slasher films which bear far too much resemblance to reality because let’s face it those Nut job weirdos exist out there!
So celebrating it in reality fills me with a sense of underlying fear. Mostly fear that one of the said Nut jobs out there gets a kick out of those films and builds ideas for their own repertoire of criminal insanity.
Having said that I often have to question the authors of these books and screen plays as to where their mind goes when they write this stuff? Like please explain what part of their mind closet they dig into to come up with the gory imagery we get left with? Are these their own secret dark fantasies? Seriously do you ever ask yourself this stuff?
Then pray tell why do we humans get a kick out of watching and participating in the whole storyline? What part of our closet minds rises up to find enjoyment in this?
I’ve had people in life say to me I’m a kill joy when it comes to Halloween. I always say though I need to understand it’s value and why as humans we can detest the acts of murder and abuse publicly but then off we go to celebrate this odd event and embrace all this like it’s ok?
Because it’s not real? Maybe in virtuality. Which is the only place I can find any “fun” from it.
So I enjoy the whole dressing up and looks in Second life, but I choose to not in reality.
This morning is a slow start. It’s Sunday and it’s allowed to be. Why do I feel guilty when I choose to have a lazy one?
My housemate is out jogging her usual 10k run in her very obsessive way and I note because of that I feel a sense of guilt at my own Sunday laziness.
There are a few things I’m noticing about her that do concern me. One being the extreme fitness obsession. I don’t mean that lightly either, the girl is obsessed.
So obsessed that every single day is spent climbing, running, doing jujitsu, biking and yoga. Anyone who doesn’t do the same she has a negative view on. In fact anyone who has a extra pound on their skeleton is fat according to her observation.
I’m also noticing other traits that concern me. The level of self love being based solely on how she looks and equating that to her attitude about others. Which has a direct impact on me. It’s impacting me and how I feel about myself. Especially as I’m in a time of life that many women go through of body change etc.
This is my home and yet I’m feeling uncomfortable within it. Because the dynamic of this person and her views are very contrary to mine.
She refers to disabled people as “retarded”, gay and trans people as “needing counselling”.
I have tried for months to be like the mother figure and impart my ways of teaching her a different set of views but let’s face it. It’s not going to happen, the girl is lacking in many areas.
Oh and if you are overweight, and I mean even slightly you are plainly and simply a fat person who has no control.
Oh and if I laugh out loud reading something I hear “Calm down”. What is that about?
This girl is Slovakian. Is that a cultural set of attitudes or one related to a person? Any suggestions on this would be appreciated.
I’m considering the ending of the living arrangement in the new year. After all it is my home and if I’m feeling that I don’t like the aura of a person then frankly I’d rather struggle with my bills than feel this.
As a woman who has always questioned why in life. I am right now asking why why why do we every single month have to go through that feeling of mood swings, bloating, stomach pain and let the list go on. Why?
We simply have no choice, well some of us. Others are lucky to not have that experience each month and in my next life I want to sample being one of them.
I’m 54 years old and I’m sure menopause is in transition right now. But, whilst that is happening I still get all the feelings of being 13 again when I used to disappear to the medical room at school and lay down.
I guess that’s life and it’s the way it is. But why????
Now on that note enjoy your Saturday and don’t eat all the donuts.
