For good or bad my sl family has been changing lately. It breaks my heart that Miketh isn't in our family anymore. The space you left will never truly ever be filled.
Ethan my little brother may have decided that the time zone difference was to much. We haven't seen him on in a good bit. Here is a picture I took of him and the dino I got him.
I had no idea it was so big. Nor did I know it could eat twenty eight pb & j's in one sitting. Thank god Mom is a huge fan of peanut butter.
Some great news though. Two very special gals have came into my life that I adore. Bri and Stevi. They fit so well and are both very goodhearted, funny, unique individuals, that light up my day. I call them my sisters. They are twin seven year olds with tons of spunk and creativity. I know all of us in the family feel pretty blessed to have them in our lives.
We are now known as the Everdeen family. Based on the surname of the lead character and her family from the Hunger Game books.
I just recently read all three books. I won't give spoilers but I will say it was the first time I threw a book. I wanted to go all Annie Wilkie on Suzanne Collins' ass. Instead I cried so hard that I felt stupid.
Both girls are great at taking pictures and own stores on their bigs (adult avatars)
Veri/Bri owns the wonderful pose store Mood Swings. Mood Swings TP
Veri did this amazing pose and photo of me and my fella Sachy.
Steph/Stevi makes some beautiful shapes and jewelry at her store called Trinkets shapes n' such TP here.
Here is a picture Stevi did of the Everdeen girls.
Cady my Moma had a real life birthday recently. Sachy built her a karaoke stage and I hired Maximillion Kleene to come serenade her. The girls bought her an amazing cake and moms friends and family came to celebrate her day. Thank you all for coming and making that day special for her. She really deserves it. I love her so good.
Lets talk about my boyfriend. The one and only Sachy. He is the cutest sweetest most awesomeness guy ever. We hit a rough patch there for a second and I just knew in my heart it was over. I was ready to chalk it up to another failed attempt by yours truly. It was him that messaged me asking what were we doing. He wanted to know if I was as unhappy as he was not talking to each other. I was. I think the thought of us not being in a relationship anymore made us both realize how much we really loved each other. Every day I wake up I think about him. We have so much fun together. We are so mad and deep with this.... it takes my air away.
He also takes some really great pictures. Here is his version of some of the family together.
I know we are all trying to get our bearings about us since Miketh left . Each of us trying to be strong for the others. I just want all of us to be ok. Whether your in the family now or not.
What I say in my blog is just my prospective of things and not the end all nor be all of anything.
Speaking of blogs
Sometimes I wish there was a reset button for all the blogging community of secondlife. I've been noticing lately how the sl bloggers aren't a community at all. You have people who think there is this one way to blog due to their successful blogs. Then you have people who whine because they want to be successful like them. Then you have all of us in the middle. There is a gray area of bloggers who give no fucks. I really just write my blog for myself. It lets me go down memory lane and remember those times easier. The thing is. I don't expect anyone to understand me or accept me or follow my lead. I encourage people to find their own way with it. Who cares how you blog. It's just a blog. How can anyone be having this discussion about it. It's laughable. If you zoomed out and looked at the big picture. Some sl people are successful in part because they found secondlife earlier than others. Honestly what does it really mean to have been on secondlife longer than other people. Think about that. It means nothing. I am not seriously going to show a sign of respect because you've been on secondlife for more years than me. I know there are some slers who whine about their blogs not getting enough hits. Maybe it comes in time. Maybe your blog isn't what people like.
I'm not really a fashion blogger. I dip a toe in it here and there. My blog is my sl journal for the most part. Maybe a scrapbook even. I once had a girl IM me saying. " So you blog's about what goes on in your sl life?" I responded "Yea pretty dorky huh?" and she agreed. In turn that made me laugh.
So a reset button would be great. But it's not practical. I can only really speak for myself. If you don't like my blog. Don't read it. Or read it and roll your eyes. I just want you to know. I don't care. If reading my blog makes you smile and you want to IM me. Your always going to put a smile on my face. And I'm probably going to try and make friends with you.
Plurk is the place that I see a lot of the complaining of things that go on in the blogging community. I try and weed out people that only whine or people that are so catty it makes my eye twitch. I am a horrible plurker. I would rather reply/read to other plurks.I get having a bad day or week or month. Some of you are so up and down in a day I worry you might be manic depressive.
What's on the horizon for Abernathy Everdeen? Just chillin. Swimming. Hanging out. Summer is here people. Get happy!
