BLAUGUST REBORN

 

Well it’s that time of year again – when I try my darndest to blog for the month of august and hopefully won’t fail. I read about it here¬†http://aggronaut.com/2018/07/09/blaugust-reborn/ I have to say I try my best. I’m hoping you all will enjoy it…

Still puttering around Second Life on my default toon (Which I apparently don’t have a picture of right meow).

I have so many questions – where am I supposed to get bodies from and heads? I’m going to have to keep making notes about this sort of thing because its not very obvious to me.

I was also hoping to get a little apartment – but apparently you have to pay for that – which I understand I guess.

I’m not sure how the map works. I’m wondering if I should get free stuff when I find it and then see if I can use it later. This is an ongoing thing and i’m just trying to figure it out.

My shower gives me anxiety

So I have dealt with anxiety one way or another my whole life. I have to say I am usually pretty good with dealing with it on a situation by situation bases. I know the title of this post sounds like an odd thing to write about but it came to mind.

So I live with 3 other people in my apartment – it has one bathroom. Since we are a family we have an unwritten schedule. Lately with my allergies and napping a lot more, as well as changes in my work schedule it has sort of gone out of wack for me. Can’t be helped. During the spring till summer I get athelets foot on my left foot only. It’s weird and I don’t know why, but its always been this way. To try and deal with it. I fill the tub with a bit of water and wash it. I dry them well and put on a nice clean/new pair of socks. This isn’t a full body shower JUST the feet. I sit on the side of the tub while letting the water run.

The way the tub is set up, there are 3 knobs. The one in the middle controls where the water comes from. Either the shower head or the faucet, now logic would dictate that I should just turn this knob before turning on the water and I will be ok. For some reason I always forget which way to turn it for that.

It’s like either this will be nice OR it’s going to rain and I’m not talking about dollar bills.

Whelp there you go – more about me you didn’t know LoL

It’s a struggle sometimes

My Experience With Second Life So Far

1200px-Second_Life_logo.svg.png

Second Life is an online virtual world, the game has been out since 2003. Now I had heard about it for a while – but it was one of those things that sort of lingered around the edge for me. I thought it was going to be like the Sims, but its not really. What got me to jump into it was I saw a number of really pretty pictures online. At first I thought they were stand alone 3D images you know like.. “I spent hours drawing this by hand” type situations. It was later I found out they were actually screen shots. I was hooked, I went to their website and joined.

Joining is free, just so you know – but there was a LOT of information and windows and what not when you log in for the first time.There is a tutorial, but even after 3hrs of walking around the starter zone I still felt lost and not sure of what I was doing.

So I started reading up, trying to find my way around. I found a LOT of youtube videos. Some of them were talking about giveaways and free things. That you had to go to the stores location to get….alas I was lost. I couldn’t for the life of me figure out how to get to the place. Then after figuring it out (kinda), I didn’t know what to do with the information. Sometimes I did sort of blunder through it – only to realize I didn’t actually have the thing I needed to use it.

Mesh heads, and bento and WHAT???? Sometimes I would see other players, but I was to nervous to ask for help. I found this island by accident and it was really beautiful – but I couldn’t find anyone else. No one to talk to….which in a way is fine.

I also had a problem with walking and using the camera – I kept walking backwards and sometimes even walking in a circle. I tried flying thinking maybe that would be easier. But….. if you don’t know how to land – well there is only one way to land but I want to be a bit more graceful then a rock falling out of the sky.

I’ve also come to realize owning a second life house is not something I’m going to be able to do any time soon. Not that I thought I really would be able to of course.

My avatar is not bu any means ugly – she has a weird thing going on with the back of her legs….but there were so many cute things. I’m trying to stay positive about the whole situation……

OH and TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY……woot woooooooooooooooo

 

Dam my Eyes

Ok…ok – LIFE is the answer to not blogging. WELL, not just that. I kinda was feeling like I didn’t have a lot to talk about. Then when I would log in to write something my little hamster brain would just blank out.

So, I’m NOT going to make any promises, cause if I don’t come through I’m going to be super pissy with myself.

ANYWAYS Elder Scrolls Online – I want to still be excited about this, but I’m sorta not so super excited about it. I mean I log in to do the regular scheduled stuff with my guilds, but i’m just not inspired to like THROW myself at it like I used to. Summerset is coming out and I’m like “shrug” whatever…there are a lot of really great videos and blogs that talk about that stuff all over the internet. I am not really one of them.

I did get the Dark Brotherhood cave – I saved my pennies to do it. But I went in there like 4 or 5 times and that’s it. I realized it’s because the music is not so great. I want to get the palace that’s going to be gone soon – but it will cost me $40. I realized as much as I love it. I’m not really IN LOVE with it. So I’m going to save my crowns for now.

Dam its dark in here

When I do log in I go to PvP land. I’m getting better I think, not as squishie but still dying. I’m still learning new things everyday and I kinda feel like if I keep going who knows what can happen.

I started the Imperial City quest line which, is like, HARD. But I found out they have teleport shard things to take you back to base so you don’t loose your Tel Var.

Rocking Out in the Sewers 

 

I tried to go back to Guild Wars 2 – but that was actually worst. I didn’t know anything and didn’t have any friends and didn’t want to start over. They have flying mounts, which is cool but since I didn’t buy the update I don’t have one. Hater going to Hate for sure.

So I figured maybe I should – you know – go outside. Not that I had a choice since I have been working a lot of CRAZY hours. It was nice…..for like a minute – sadly it’s spring which means. Yes the weather is nice, but I can’t breath because of the pollen. Cause I’M allergic to freakin’ trees.

I’m outside – now dazzle me

Anyway, that’s about all for now. It’s my birthday on Sunday, i’m not overly excited but you know adulting and what not.

 

Everything Feels Groovy

Ok so combing e,f and g in one post could be seen as cheating, but I fell behind so whatever’s.

The truth is I have spent a lot of time reading and dealing with migraines that I seem to be getting more of now that the weather is changing. It’s not fun, but it’s ok.

The last book I just finished is Apocalypse Cow…It received the Terry Pratchett award so I figured it had to be good. If you haven’t go get a copy right now. The main concept is that people are trying to survive a zombie outbreak, but instead of it being people it’s cows. Or rather it starts with cows and moves into other animals.

You follow a few different characters who end up together at one point. It’s such an easy read and you get sucked in rather quickly. i realize I’m not very good at writing book reviews, something I’ll have to work on I guess.

I have also been trying to work out this game withdrawel. I have tried a number of times to sit at the computer and maybe play a different game but nothing has really peeked my interest. I played GW2 for about ten minutes then logged out. I am very behind on the story and was overwhelmed by the amount of things I still had to do. Add that there is no one for me to talk to while I play makes it even less appealing.

I mentioned once that I was working on my RPing characters, but nothing new has really come of that either. Mostly just watching YouTube videos.

I have made a few pairs of earrings, but my work space is small so it’s hard to sit there for any amount of time. I’m not very inspired, which sucks as it was a stress release.

So the question is what does one do to kick start themselves?
