I can't believe it's been a full year. Holy shit. I have been through a lot of stuff. SL is a very real, very emotional (for lack of a better word) experience. You feel deeper about everything, good and bad. I can say with confidence that there has been more good than bad. Which is a good thing, right?
I've been trying for days to get into Collabor88. Oh M G. Finally today I get in. Yay! A year ago I had no idea what Collabor was...so funny. Anyway, I'm wandering and shopping and ooh, pretty party dress, where am I going to wear this? Oh, tomorrow's the res day party....*forehead slap*.
See, my friend Asha's res day is tomorrow. For real. Anyway, I've been planning our shared res day parties for tomorrow evening (more on that at the end of the post). So I was keeping an eye out for any added decor for the party. If you get a chance, even if you can't make my party, check out my shop sim, it's so pretty with all the sparkly lights (put time of day to midnight). Love it.
So I'm broke. For real can't believe how much money I spent there. I actually wasn't done shopping. LOL! I don't think I've ever spent that amount of money at one event yet to date. Wow. So I have to go back when I've got more fundage...time to get strippin and designing some more clothes.
So yeah. I'm overwhelmed as I usually am over anything having to do with any type of emotion. I've been reflecting on how far I've come, how much I've learned, what lessons I've still yet to learn (I'm stubborn). There's so much that I can't put it into words. I know you all get it. You've probably been here already. There is one very important lesson that I finally have learned and "leveled up" as it was put to me yesterday. I finally said no to someone that I've never been able to say no to since I met him. Lets just say, the world didn't' end, and he's still around...again. But saying no wasn't as hard as I thought. He actually was flabbergasted. He said, "You've never said no to me." LOL! So priceless.
It was a very confidence-boosting exercise. I couldn't wait to tell all my nearest and dearest, but the first to find out was my teacher and confidant...Marik. I really can't talk about him on here cause he's not into the mushy stuff and shit, plus I'll start crying. Lets just say he's turned out to be one of my best friends and I love him and ... just... yeah. See? With the crying. I'm a leaky faucet today.
So in typical SL fashion I will now share my noob photo and a recent photo....don't laugh. I've never shared this one cause eww, but it's time.
So, that's it for now. I thought about doing a "are you a noob?" quiz to see if I passed, but I think I'm good. I've earned my stripes. Here's to another roller coaster ride for the coming year. I hope it remains more good than bad.
Aaaaanddd....I want to invite EVERYBODY to my res day party. It's on the shop sim. Open to all. I have DJ Leggs lined up for two hours from 5-7PM SLT on Friday (tomorrow night!) playing a lovely mix of dirty naughty dancing music...and you can bet there probably will be stripping involved. So come see me! Or don't. It promises to be a blast.

(PS - I may even give away gift cards to the shop cause I like giving away stuff)
I hope to see you there!
