Maybe I'll find some peace tonight

Spend all your time waiting,
for that second chance,
for a break that would make it okay.
There's always some reason,
to feel not good enough,
and it's hard at the end of the day.

May you find some comfort here

I absolutely love the La Vie sim. At first I was a little sad about the old one being gone because it was such a great contrast. There was the city part, beaches, fields, nice relaxing areas - all my photo and exploring needs on one sim. Anyway, being sad about the change was crazy talk because the new La Vie is right up my alley. It's beachy and tropical and perfect. I explored underwater a bit this time when I was there too. It is all just so, so pretty. I am in awe. Did I ever mention that I met the owners there once, before the sim was redone? They chopped off my head with a guillotine on the beach. It's true, you can't make this stuff up. Only in SL.

This picture today was inspired by my love of La Vie, and also the angel wings on the back of my dress. I had so much fun standing there with my arms spread open and changing the sky to all different colors. I am obsessed with playing with light and shadows recently...I'm a dork. I've also been experimenting with reflections and different looks on water. Not that much of that ended up in this picture, but it's still fun to play around with.

Now you're just somebody that I used to know

But you didn't have to cut me off,
make out like it never happened and that we were nothing.
And I don't even need your love,
but you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough.

It's an ache I still remember

I thought I had things to say but I keep deleting them and then typing them and then deleting them again, so maybe I don't have things to say after all. Maybe I'll just leave you with a poorly edited picture and leave it at that. Yes, I think that's what I'll do.

You're so cool, it makes me hate you so much

You make me so happy it turns back to sad,
there's nothing I hate more than what I can't have.
You are so gorgeous it makes me so mad,
you're gorgeous.

Unless you wanna come along

Today I set out to photograph my pretty new skin. Another new skin? I know. I might have a problem. Are there support groups for obsessive skin purchasing? But look how preeeeeeeetty. I couldn't help it. I've been wanting a skin from Deetalez and there was a sale. So you see, I didn't have a choice. But I digress. As I was saying, I wanted to photograph my new skin...but then I had a glance at my flickr photostream and I've gotten decidedly cutesy and girly lately. So, lest you think I've lost my edge, I somehow ended up in a cage wearing a lacy little black thing.

Tiny dancer in my head

Ballerina,
you must have seen her,
dancing in the sand.

Tiny Dancer

I tried to stay away from Collabor88. I really tried. But alas I went...and I demoed...and I bought this super cute bathing suit. I love the way that the sleeves hang down over the shoulders. I kind of have to talk myself out of buying bathing suits the same way I have to talk myself out of buying lingerie. Although I guess for different reasons, the bathing suits is just because I have a zillion of them. Which is now a zillion and one.

Let your troubles fall behind you

Let it go,
let it roll right off your shoulder.
Don't you know, 
the hardest part is over?
Let it in,
let your clarity define you.
In the end,
we will only just remember how it feels.

These small hours

I had a rough day in RL yesterday, so I figured a nice bike ride in SL was in order. It's not something that I talk about much, but I had back surgery yesterday (outpatient, who knew). Everything went well, but my body reacts weird to any kind of drugs and narcotics and I've had quite a lot of those since yesterday morning, including general anesthesia. So I'm still feeling a little fuzzy and loopy, I don't like it. But I am excited to get back to my normal, active life after months of pain. Anyway, I'm not the girl who complains ever at all and I don't plan on starting that now!

I love the bright colors in my cute outfit, and the happy balloons and teal color of my bike. I've literally just been just riding laps around this shopping sim that I ended up on. It's always a beautiful day in SL for a bike ride!

The truth is all you see

When you feel that hole,
inside your soul,
and wonder what you're made of.
Well we all find out,
when the lights go down.

When the lights go down

Don't you love it when a song that you haven't even thought of in years just randomly pops into your head? One of the perks of spending so much time awake in the middle of the night, I guess. And I really, really like this song. It takes a minute to get going, but that chick could sure belt a tune.

I'm in love with my pretty new dress. Or am I in lust with it? Is there even a difference? Either way I never wanna take it off until I change into something else and then forget that it ever existed. Yes, if that's not love than I don't know what is.

I was also playing with the various options that came with my Pink Fuel skin. I added freckles on the face and the body, put on some makeup, and reduced the chest shading from default to small chest. The boob thing was an after thought, I was just kind of clicking on everything and I think it looks more natural with the dress. And then I took a wide shot with a windlight setting that makes it difficult to see the details. Good blogging, huh? Whatever, I like it.

The walls that lie between us

I want you to remember,
a love so full it could send us always. 
And I want you to surrender,
all my feelings rose today. 
And I want you to remain,
the power of children can amaze. 
I'll try not to complain,
I know that's a pisser, baby.

Never meant you wrong

I haven't had much to say lately, I'm not really sure why. I still love all of the things that I'm wearing. This dress is really great, I love how it's ruched down the front and then the laces dangle at the bottom. It's really lovely and well done. The rest of the things that I'm wearing are fabulous too - new hair and jewelry, favorite boots and rings and tattoos. So it's not the fault of my gorgeous SL finds, I'm just not feeling particularly wordy, I guess,
