Confession .77. But One Day You’ll Be Stronger Than All That You Beat…

Heavyweight flow, if they can’t lift you then they can’t drop you
The pinnacle, if they can’t reach you then they can’t top you
Man, they can’t do anything that you’re about to…

I don’t understand people.  I really don’t.

Like… am I supposed to?  Is this something I’m supposed to inherently understand because I’m human?  I mean… I understand decent people.  Like, decent human beings?  I got you.  You make sense to me.  However, miserable people who apparently think so lowly of themselves that they then have to turn around and try to drag the rest of us down to their particular circle of hell?

No thanks.  Like… I’m not really in an Inferno kind of mood, Dante.  Thanks, though.

Confession .74. Adronitis

All that’s real is faded
Like a car into the night…
Like a painkiller, I take it
And I watch the world ignite.

Adronitis

n. frustration with how long it takes to get to know someone—spending the first few weeks chatting in their psychological entryway, with each subsequent conversation like entering a different anteroom, each a little closer to the center of the house—wishing instead that you could start there and work your way out, exchanging your deepest secrets first, before easing into casualness, until you’ve built up enough mystery over the years to ask them where they’re from, and what they do for a living.

Yep.  So.  This is me right now… heh.

Hi, my name is Tivi, and I’m obsessed with my Bento mesh heads.

As most of you know, or can see from previous blog posts, I’m in love with my Lelutka Simone Bento head.  But prior to the integration of Bento into Firestorm, I was absolutely enamored with my Catwa Tumble animated and Catwa Kori static heads.  So when I heard about an SL subscription box focused solely around Catwa heads, can you guess what I said?

YES, PLEASE!

Confession .72. I Told You To Be Balanced, And I Told You To Be Kind

Who will love you?
Who will fight?
And who will fall far behind?

When I was younger, I loved all of the Disney movies, though Mulan was my favorite.  Cause… badass woman doing what men think she can’t do simply because she wasn’t born with a penis?  Yes, please.

However, as I grew older, I grew to have a bit of a love/hate relationship with Cinderella.

Confession .65. You Are Not Equal. I’m Sorry.

I’m re-posting a post that I saw that I find myself very much agreeing with.
I feel the need to repost this here because I’m seeing the post that it’s responding to circulating around my SL Facebook as well.
The content of this post was originally written by Dina Leygerman, and can be found HERE.

A post is making rounds on social media, in response to the Women’s March on Saturday, January 21, 2017. It starts with “I am not a “disgrace to women” because I don’t support the women’s march. I do not feel I am a “second class citizen” because I am a woman….”

This is [her; Dina’s] response to that post.

Say thank you. Say thank you to the women who gave you a voice. Say thank you to the women who were arrested and imprisoned and beaten and gassed for you to have a voice. Say thank you to the women who refused to back down, to the women who fought tirelessly to give you a voice. Say thank you to the women who put their lives on hold, who –lucky for you — did not have “better things to do” than to march and protest and rally for your voice. So you don’t feel like a “second class citizen.” So you get to feel “equal.”

Confession .64. Aren’t You Glad To Meet Me?

Been counting all your aces, you ain’t winnin’
Your phonebook full of numbers, ‘stead of names
All them vain decisions keep you jaded
You could have found the one but you won’t change…

So here’s the thing.  I’m kinda fed up with what the SL modeling community tells us is the ‘standard’ of what ‘pretty’ is.  I’m sick of being told I HAVE to look like everyone else (while also being lectured about being ‘unique’ and how my face is my brand)… I’m just done.  Fed up.  Over it.
