love never felt so good

howdy ya’ll!

so i’ve been around, on sl. doin’ stuff, hangin’ out, y’know the drill. i just haven’t really felt much like blogging. i’m not dead, i swear it.. just kind of fell out of love with the whole bloggity thing.

..well, until now.

you see, somethin’ rather important happened the other day && i felt like a blog post commemorating it seemed appropriate~

6.30.14

allarik and i got married!

daffodil

if you’ve followed this blog for a little while, you may remember that april as a whole is a.. hard time of the year, for me. and as march edges close to the end (and can we just talk about how *fast* march has gone by? my god!), i’m feeling.. emotional? i suppose. not anxious or even apprehensive, but just very attuned to my emotions. granted, they’re not the most fantastical emotions, but i’m very much feeling them and i’m letting myself feel them.

so i took a pic. because that’s what i do. i’m not the most talented content creator out there && i’m *absolutely* not an artist in any sense of the word, but what i feel i can let the creative juices flow all over is takin’ snapshots inworld. so i took one, full of symbols and meaning and yadda yadda. i don’t think anyone else will understand the symbolism the way i do and i’m okay with that (but if you’re really curious, you’re welcome to ask ♥). it just felt good to put these feelings into something i can say i’m proud of. having an outlet like that.. even if it’s as simple as putting something together that has no meaning for anyone else other than me… is a good way to deal with it all, i think.

daffodil

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed–and gazed–but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

~William Wordsworth

because i’m….

i may not gush here continuously about allarik.. but i can’t deny the fact that he makes me feel unbelievably loved. so much so that whenever he’s around, i can’t help but smile. he’s become such a huge, huge, huge part of my life (both first && second) that i’m so thankful these days that he’d given me a chance at all. and because of that, i found something in him that i thought i wouldn’t find in a relationship…

happiness~

it’s sappy, yeah i know. but don’t rain on my parade! my happy, happy parade!

...happy

we haven’t discussed our wedding or anything of yet. it may happen sometime this year, but it doesn’t even *need* to honestly. i’m as happy now as i ever thought i could be && am content to take things slowly. we can be one of those couples that’s engaged forever and i’m okay with that. as long as i have him, i’m happy no matter what, really..

rezday

for the first time, like, ever… i actually remembered my rezday this year!

i’m this many! ..that’d be six, btw.

and i have some amusing info && pictures to share…

long post ahead, fair warning! and get ready to cringe~

little bit of cosplay

i know i’m not the only one, but i am *definitely* not immune to gacha insanity. i love them just as much as the next sl resident.. and it doesn’t matter which event it is, i will most likely find something in a gacha machine to go crazy for.

so when bff vivi && i saw some sailor scout inspired lingerie sets from tsg at an event called omgacha, we knew we had to collect them *all*. no ifs ands or buts about it — we had to have every. single. set.

we are both HUGE fans of sailor moon.. it reminds us so much of our childhood. the english, dubbed version of sailor moon came on every day on cartoon network after school and i rarely missed an airing. i was always fondest of sailor mercury && sailor jupiter, but there’s a sort of *nostalgic love* for all the inner and outer senshi. i’ve seen just about every episode, the movies, have read some of the manga — i think *obsessed* is even putting it lightly. so seeing these sets, with their butt bows and adorable sailor collars.. i think i went completely out of my mind with wanting all of them.

so, naturally, vivienne and i plugged our lindens into the machine until we did, in fact, get every last pair.. and that inspired a cosplay photoshoot that is just too awesome not to share!

moooooooon priiismmmmmmmm POWEEEEEEERR~!!!

big things

so i’ve had a few big things happen to me in the last several days or so, that i haven’t yet blogged about… and i thought maybe now might be a good time to do so!

after all, this blog is vixxie’s virtual life && these things have a pretty decent impact on my virtual life, so let’s get to dishin’!

O:

so, um, a bit of backstory on this one! ehe~

stuck? STUCK!?

merry christmas eve, everyone!

amidst all the merriment, i have to make time to watch one of my favorite movies ever. on repeat. for the next *twenty-four hours*.

not only is a christmas story probably the *best* holiday movie ever made, but it’s also in my top five favorite movies of all time. i can quote the movie off by heart, i own it on DVD, i want a leg lamp in my rl *so* freakin’ badly… even my dog is named after this movie (his name is ralphie! say hi, ralphie!). i could easily watch it for the entirety of the annual marathon, and it most likely will indeed be on in the background during all of my holiday festivities.

so naturally, i had to pay homage to it in second life, too. ;P

i’m sure i’ll throw together a post tomorrow for the big day, but if not.. i hope everyone has a nice holiday! ♥

girl’s night

i realize that this is supposed to be mostly a second life blog… hell, i even *made* it that way. but sometimes i like to talk about my rl every once in a while && today is just one of those days!

girl's night

by now, if you’ve followed my blog for any length of time, you should know that my two best friends — both in world and in “real life” — are vivienne && pumms. i’ve known them for years and years and yeeeeeeeeeears, they’ve been my very close friends for basically as long as i can remember. i adore them completely, they are more like family to me than anything else. and i *love* spending time with them.

however, in the last few years, the time i get to spend with them is mostly digital. between family obligations, work schedules, responsibilities && general busy-ness, we don’t get together irl as much as we used to. i text them, email them, talk on skype or on the phone with them, hang out in world, play games with them… but it’s just not the same as being able to see them smile in person, you know?

but! we make exceptions in our busy lives for special occasions… and tonight, we’re celebrating our own christmas together. i could not be more excited!! we’re baking holiday cookies, having dinner && drinks, exchanging gifts and just hanging out.. and it’s going to be the highlight of my week. i cannot wait!

if you thought the ridiculousness we get up to in-world was bad, you haven’t *seen* us when we’re together irl. but i’ll save you the silly details on all that. 😉

new beginnings

sometimes, the end of one thing… and the beginning of something new… is bittersweet.

new beginnings

i mean, it’s probably silly to feel nostalgic or even sad over voluntarily leaving behind something that’s been your home in a virtual world for almost a year… but i can’t deny that i’m feeling a little blue over giving up this pretty beach.

day 16: quiet

so. today in america, it’s father’s day..

quiet
and it’s a quiet kind of day for me, in rl as well as in sl. i find that my rl moods, my rl happenings, my rl feelings translate into what i do in sl, too. and if i don’t feel up to much in my real life, then i don’t feel up to much in my second life either. and today is just one of those days.

i’ve mentioned here on my blog already why father’s day is tough for me, so i won’t go into a long post about it again today.. but i will say it’s a rough kind of day for me and i’m a little more sad than i expected to be this year.

it’s still a day to be celebrated though, and despite the fact that mine is gone i still have a father and want to honor him today.. so i’m having his favorite meal for my rl dinner tonight. it’s not much, but it feels like i’m still celebrating with him in my own way, and i suppose that’s enough.
