Open Road Collection


The Open Road Collection


The Arcade Gacha Event is officially here! I spent probably an hour or so trying to get into the sim using the LetMeIn Hud. I really do like using this hud to get into events and what not. Definitely worth the linden for it and very easy to use. Any who mission accomplished! I was able to get my gacha on. I came across this amazing set from Consignment, and just had to have it. My gacha wants and needs are offically finished for this round of the arcade. Would like to wish everyone happy gachaing.

Consignment made The Open Road Collection for this round of the arcade. The Open Road Collection has fourteen commons and one rare to collect. Travel in style and comfort across the grid. Along your journeys make sure to break out your playable cornhole game ( playable). Also if you feel like testing your knowledge on the open road, break out the trivia piece ( playable)  to test your knowledge while traveling the open road.


I went and visited Harlow Heslop's new sim called Blithe. The sim is gorgeous. Harlow did an amazing job with this sim. The sim is home to the Pixel Bean Coffee House. This is where I took all my pictures for this post at. Make sure you head over to Blithe and check it out for yourself.

Teleport to Blithe

I know there is a lot to look at in this one picture. So to help here are the original pictures I used to design this look. Also my inspiration for this picture can be seen here.  Credits listed below

The Charmer



The Charmer


Well it is that time again. The Arcade is here! This round of The Arcade Gacha is full of amazing items from wonderful creators all around. For this picture I decided to showcase the Zaara Jodhpur set. Indian architecture has always caught my eye. With that being said, I happened to come across some suits that Zaara made for The Mens Dept awhile ago, I went and checked out her store that she has and ended up falling in love with it. I have always wanted Indian themed buildings and what not in Second Life. Well the wait is over, and a wait that is well worth it I must add. But after venturing over to Uber and seeing that this rounds theme was Boho, I thought I that the gacha set and some of the stuff from Uber went hand in hand. Anyways you can get the set at The Arcade Gacha Event.

Get Your Learn On ( SL Made Me Learn Challenge)

Get Your Learn On



Thought I would take part in Strawberry Singh's Monday Meme Challenge this week.

Meme instructions: Share things that you have learned because of your involvement in Second Life, either personally or professionally. 


Photoshop: I never really used this program before getting into blogging. Now I know more than quickly throwing some words on a picture. I am not one to spend hours upon hours on my photos. I like to showcase what you would see if you bought the item I am blogging in Second Life as it should be. I like to slightly process my pictures. 

(However, today's picture I did spend like 6 hours processing the picture. I came across a tutuorial on how to do it. It caught my eye so I decided to give it a go. I deleted the first one after spending close to 3 hours working on it.)

Shopping: I have learned that being a man in Second Life is quite a task. Even though there are all these lovely events, it is really hard to find things for men. I personally wish there was 2-3 items that men could purchase at every event. 


Gachas: These things are the devil!!! ( Enough said)

The World We Live In: The great thing about Second Life is being able to communicate with people all over the world. I find it quite fun to learn interesting facts about other countries from the people I talk to. 

People: Sometimes we all forget that there are humans with REAL emotions behind the other avatars we talk to. I know I have hurt others in the past and it is not something I am proud of. Every single person that plays Second Life is dealing with something in the real world. However, it seems that we never take this into consideration and tend to be judgemental of others. I have learned some people are nothing but lying two faced people. Which I find very disturbing.  . If you are friends with me or talk to me. I will tell you straight up, as if we were having a face to face conversation in real life. I don't think it's right that people sit behind a keyboard trying to act like Billy Fucking Bad ass. Cause in all reality you probably are NOT Chuck Norris, so you attempting to be a bad ass just makes you look either like a bitch or a complete dickhead. With that being said some need to lighten up and also realize that Second Life is actually a game.  

Myself: I have dealt with a lot in the real world. Personal inner demons, bad decision making, life issues. From what I have been told, is that I am kind, sweet, generous ( sometimes too generous). However, I have also been called every name in the book. I have a very thick skin. This was made working in the restaurant industry. So whenever someone says I am kind, sweet or generous, it tends to throw me off. I look at it as this. I am me. I act the same way I do as if it was real life. I don't plan on changing for anyone or any group of people anytime soon. I have had a wonderful opportunity to spend time with amazing people and they have inspired me to look at life in a different perspective. This is something I am really thankful about. However, there is ONE person that in a short period of time opened my eyes more than I could even imagine doing. For this I am more than grateful for seeing SL and RL in a different perspective.

That Happy Place, To Escape Life's Curveballs

That Happy Place, To Escape Life's Curveballs


Sometimes in life, you need a get away spot. A spot to ponder, a spot to think, a spot to figure out whom you are as a person and what you want in life. We all just need a spot to get away from life and the curveballs it tends to throw at us on a daily basis.

I have noticed as of recently not only in Second Life but also in my real life that people seem to be struggling with life as of lately. I am not sure if it has to do with Valentines Day or what not. I sit here and observe a lot that goes on in life in both worlds. I have done this ever starting my career in the restaurant business. I guess I pick it up from all the struggles that others seem to have. I observe and I see the pain and suffering that others are going through. Sometimes I wonder what it is that I have done personally that may have caused any of these issues. As, I can be a bit of a brat and take things too far. However, if it means listen and talk to them about their issues then so be it.

My overall thought process on this is that we all think we need someone to complete us, but in reality what we really need is someone to accept us for who we are as a person completely. Unfortunately a lot of us in life including myself have not found these sorts of people in life. We all chose our own way of  how we go about handling life's curveballs. Whether or not it be popping pills, drinking alcohol, cutting themselves, or verbally attacking others for their own amusement and even the worst things that you can possibly do to yourself. That is to walk away from the person(s) that have stood their waiting for you. I have been on both sides of this path before, neither side of it is pleasant. Things are said, actions are done, sometimes we don't even realize that not only are we hurting ourselves but we are hurting others that we care about in the process of doing so. You may think they are weird for waiting for you. However, being called weird is like being called limited edition. It just means you're something people don't see that often, remember that. In today's society and life it truly is hard to find people that have a huge heart, that are will to listen to what you have to say, and honestly care about you as a person.

Over time, I have realized that nobody is perfect, and that nobody deserves to be perfect. No one has it easy, everyone has issues. You never really know what others are going through in life. I have learned it is best to listen to others before judging, criticizing or even mocking others. Cause when push comes to shove, everybody is fighting their own unique war.  We should all follow the golden rule in life to treat others like we want to be treated. I try to make people laugh and lighten up whenever I can. If I can make them happy then my job is done. But most of all I recommend just finding that happy place that you can go to take your mind off of life, lose yourself in the moment doing so and, just think for yourself. Clear your mind of whatever it is that is ailing you at the time. By doing so, it will only make you a stronger and better person than what you were before. Also, remember that those people waiting are the ones that truly do care about you and for you as a person. They want to be a part of your life in some way or another. When you do chose to return to those people waiting there for you, things will become better and stronger than what they were before.
