“It’s funny how some distance makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me can’t get to me at all
Up here in the cold thin air I finally can breathe
I know I left a life behind but I’m too relieved to grieve” – Demi Lovato, Let It Go
Another post inspired by a movie I have yet to see. Will I ever watch a movie prior to mentioning it on my blog? I have actually been wanting to watch this movie for about a year, but the timing just never seemed right. I am planning to watch this movie somewhere next week, as my next semester is already starting the week after that (week 36).
Summer truly flew by, and the amount of time I have spent within the virtual world is an awful lot. In all honesty, I’m not proud of it. I wish I had spent more time with my friends catching pokémon or doing whatever we millennials are supposed to do. I wish I would have seen the beach, the forest, or felt the late night summer heat on my skin more than once or twice. Time spent with my friends, virtual or real life ones, is always well spent. However, realizing I have seen more digital landscapes than real ones the past few weeks fills me with distress and regret, hence my spontaneous absences.
I am aware that “consistency” seems to be a word I am highly unfamiliar with. As I have recalled so many times, all I wish to do is live my life to the fullest. Thus making this lifestyle in which I waste my days behind a computer screen in an attempt to be “consistent” whilst the sun is shining and I have 3 missed calls from my best friend, perhaps slightly unsuitable for me.
I will not quit. Though I will decrease my time in-world and spent it in-the-real-world instead, I will still be spending some time in the twisted universe that is Second Life. But, before my textbooks and nights of revising hit me hard again, I have a few beaches and forests to visit, ciao! ♥

I can confirm that Alice is my favorite Catwa head so far. You might not believe it since this video came out so late but better late than never!
Alice is a basic head, meaning that the head only costs 900L. You can also purchase the fatpack which includes not only the head but also all of her add-ons. The add-ons are also available to buy individually. Take a peek at Catwa’s flickr to see exactly which add-ons are available and how much they cost.
I have blogged Alice twice before and now it’s finally time for her to go up my channel. For this post I’m using a stunning applier from Insol for the main look. In my video, however, I will also show how Alice looks with appliers from:
I have listed the exact appliers and where you can find them in the video description of my vlog.
On another note, my school semester is closing in and I’ve been incredibly busy writing papers, studying and so much more. Due to this I cannot guarantee daily posts. Blogging and vlogging both take an incredible amount of time. I love doing it, truly, but I would currently rather spend that time on my school work.
Within the time that I do spend on the grid I’d like to work on posts, for both my blog and vlog, as much as possible but also work on my blog layout and pages. I’m currently in the midst of updating and creating new informative pages. I will post more about these new pages amongst other updates in one of my upcoming blog posts. Stay tuned!
