Rebel without a clue

Rebel without a clue

I’ve never shopped Rewind before but this theme brought back so many fun memories I had to stop in and buy a few things.  I had a crush on a boy who was really into punk rock and in my lame and desperate attempts to

I went through a punk phase in late in high school and on into my early days in college as well. I’d tell you how much my parents just LOVED that but that would be a lie. lol. There was a cute boy I had a major crush on who was really into punk rock and in my lame attempts to impress him and get his attention, I delved into the world on punk. (Shh! Don’t judge me I was only 17!) It was little bits here and there. I bought a compilation CD and a studded belt at Hot Topic, then a cuff and a plaid skirt with ripped fishnets. I thought I was hot chit – mostly due to the newfound attention from my classmates and because I stood out from what I called the “Abercrombie Barbies” in my school. Like I said, it was lame. lol.

And while 17-year-old me would have been thrilled to have him fall madly in love with my new fashion sense and music knowledge, and we would date and maybe marry and have little rocker babies, after one very awkward date, I realized we were better off as friends.

Somewhere along the line, probably in college, I found a love for punk and hard rock music and my own sense of style that didn’t necessarily need a studded belt to be unique. Gotta love those little life lessons right?

This is what summer dreams are made of

This is what summer dreams are made of

I haven’t posted in awhile. We’ve been so busy since we got back from vacation, and when I’m not exhausted, I’m too hot to even think about getting on the computer. It’s now a requirement that the next house has central A/C. But summer is coming to a close and the hubbers has been kind enough to set me up on his PC so that when it’s super hot I can at least sit in front of the window unit.

Enough of my rambling and ONTO THE PICTURE! Summer is my favorite season. Autumn comes in at a close second followed by winter and spring.

I grew up near Lake Michigan, so for me, summer means a lot of time at the beach with family. It’s the sunshine and the sand. Splashing in the waves. Wrapping yourself in gigantic towels and eating fresh blueberries, watermelon, or ice cream. Funny tan lines, beach grass crafts, bonfires with s’mores and falling asleep to the crashing of waves on the sand. All the windows were open unless it was raining and the A/C was barely ever touched. Most days the breeze or the wind coming off the lake was enough to keep you cool.

And now I live out East, where the humidity is higher and there are no nice lake breezes. And what passes for beach time out here is the Atlantic shore. Which….eww. (Sorry if you’re a fan of the shore but I don’t get it.) It’s a 2-hour drive – which is actually more like 3-5 with all the traffic unless you leave at the crack of dawn. Now the boardwalk is fun, I love the shops and restaurants and the rides. But then you get to the beach and have to pick your way across what feels like a mile of hot sand, around medical waste and trash is not particularly appealing. It’s not really even worth swimming. I don’t mind the ocean but up here we do not have the nice clean, blue waters of Florida and the Caribbean. Run in, cool off, and usually I come out feeling grosser than before I went in. I’ll take a polite pass.

It’s been relatively cool here the last couple of days so I’m getting in all the pics I can.  It’s nice to be able to walk into the office and not instantly break out into a sweat. It’s going to get back up into the 90’s again later this week but I’ll be on vacation so it doesn’t matter! Wheee! Sorry. Spazz moment over.

I was feeling super cute after the last picture I did as a dolly and I don’t normally do the cutesy thing so I figured one more wouldn’t hurt. I did have to inject a little bit of my typical style into it though giving me this cute kind of punk-rock doll. I’m enjoying this look so I may stay doll for a little bit longer but then again, I may change back to my regular look tomorrow.

Funny story. I bought the doll key from Hopscotch thinking it was just a normally scripted key but oops it’s RLV enabled. After admitting my blunder to my hubby followed by an explanation of what RLV is, he has a sudden renewed interest in SL. LOL. Go figure. I expect the next few weeks to be interesting, to say the least.

Sexy Time

 

Mark&Kaiden062017

Just a quick pic that I did last night. I’ve been working for weeks with the hubby and helping him get his avatar up to date with all the new mesh body parts and such. We’re finally at a place where he doesn’t mind the look so I logged him in last night while he was busy working and took a snap before he decides to change everything again since he’s still on the hunt for a hair he loves. He doesn’t hate it so small wins right? Until next time!

Until next time!

Anywhere But Here

Anywhere But Here

 

This place.

This godforsaken town.

Outsiders don’t get it. They never will. Everyone wants to visit but nobody wants to stay. And while it seems lovely and idyllic on the outside, the truth is that there’s little to offer those of us who weren’t born with a silver spoon in our mouths. It’s a lifelong sentence of drudgery and mediocrity. The rich drink their champagne and party while the blue collar families slowly drown. Efforts to revive the city have done little to boost the economy and so we are left waiting, wanting more. Wishing, for the wind to sweep us away to anywhere but here…

(Please note that this RP isn’t associated with the sim. It was just a nice place to take my photograph)

New Me

First post in a long time. I’ve been so preoccupied with my RL and everything going on there that I haven’t honestly had much motivation to even log into SL much less take photos. I tried forcing myself to work through my funk but it never really helps out. But now, with the thawing of winter, and my new pen tablet, my motivation and creativity are in full swing again. It’s been a long time coming but I feel like me again.

This is the first picture I’ve done since Christmas time, the first one with my new Bento head, and the first one I edited with my tablet. I simply added a few strands to the hair and pretty much kept the rest as is, not wanting to do too much too soon and end up ruining things. Kaiden032617
