…’Cause I feel like such an insomniac!

The title for this one was a no-brainer. That is because yesterday commemorated two things: My FIFTH Rezz Day on SL (Yes, I’m nold! Aah!) and this blog’s fourth birthday. The title is paying homage to the first post ever on this blog that Adelayda, one of my best and closest and most trusted friends in both worlds, and I did, FOUR YEARS AGO.

Honestly, when I first started this crazy Second Life, I had no idea I would still be here five years later. I’ve made and lost a lot of friends on the way, had jobs, made money, lost money, been stressed over deadlines, and pretty much almost everything there is to do in SL. It’s been an amazing experience watching things involve, from design to decor to photography, and I’m honored if I’ve helped be a part of it. I didn’t think I would still be blogging four years later either! I feel like I’ve come SUCH a long way in my picture taking skills and fashion sense, and it helps to have awesome people who keep me motivated. I love showing off my style, which can be as random as Texas weather, and this blog may not be well-known, but that part doesn’t matter to me because I love it, and that’s all that matters.

Anyway! Adelayda decided to blog with me since we started this blog together, and she took these pictures, and they are AMAZINGLY gorgeous!

three  dos unoWill I still be blogging or on SL in general in another five years? At this point I don’t know. I am pretty confident in the fact that everyone I’ve met and gotten to know in SL, be they a good person for me or a bad person, has helped shape who I am in both worlds, and every person who’s ever read this blog and gave me encouraging words about it has made me a better blogger, so thank you. <3<3

My hopes are so high that your kiss might kill me.

So I don’t do that many blog memes anymore, but today I was inspired by the lovely Strawberry Singh’s Black and White Portrait Challenge.  I love how this picture turned out, and it’s nearly raw, except for a couple of tweaks and, of course, making it black and white.
