We must take adventures in order to know where we truly belong

Summertime is definitely here. The sun stays up longer, the heat is creeping in, tourists are taking over… and getting away from it all sounds like a great idea. When I was young, we camped every summer. Sometimes it would be at Girl Scout camp (yes, I was a girl scout) and other times it would be with my family at campsites all up and down the California coast.

The heart may be weak and sometimes it might even give in…

…but I’ve learned deep down there’s a light that never goes out. ~Sora

Action & Adventure is the theme of this round of Level Up, an SL event based on video game genres. The event opened up a couple days ago on March 19th with a ton of cute stuff. Now, I consider myself a geek but I admit my video game knowledge is pretty lacking. I pretty much know only what I watch being played by my kids or other people I know. My gaming skills are pretty… unskilled. Well, unless it’s Mario Kart – I kick ASS at Mario Kart. Just saying.

One of the games I remember my kids playing A LOT of was Kingdom Hearts. Swagga made some stuff for Level Up that was inspired by Kingdom Hearts. I took a quick pick with some things you can get from them this round – take a look… Continue reading “The heart may be weak and sometimes it might even give in…”

We Lead Strange Lives, Chasing Our Dreams from Place to Place

Right now Cirque de Seraphim is going on. The event is a benefit for the ASPCA and  a portion of the proceeds are going towards them. There’s 2 full sims of creators and items with a circus theme. I don’t recall ever being a huge fan of the circus because to me circus = clowns. And clowns, like mimes, tend to creep me out. But even with my aversion to clowns there is PLENTY to see and buy. So go have a look around and shop some too – it’s for a good cause.

When Witches Go Riding, and Black Cats are Seen, the Moon Laughs and Whispers, ‘Tis Near Halloween

WARNING – this post is really picture heavy…  🙂

A friend of mine put up his Stockholm & Lima barn from the last round of the Arcade and asked me to decorate. I think maybe,  well, I went a little overboard. Okay, so I went A LOT overboard. I just had so much STUFF from a bunch of different events that are ending at the end of the month that I wanted to do posts for. And between kids, boyfriend, work and getting sick – time has just gone by so fast. Anyways, less blabber – more pictures.

Don’t Try to Sleep Through the End of the World

Don’t try to sleep through the end of the world
And bury me alive
‘Cause I won’t give up without a fight

If you love me let me go (x2)
‘Cause these words are knives and often leave scars
The fear of falling apart
And truth be told, I never was yours
The fear, the fear of falling apart

Where the Wild Things Are

Where the Wild Things Are is one of my favorite children’s books. And now it’s a gacha event!  Wild Things Gacha Fair started on July 24th and runs to August 10th. There’s plenty of stuff for everyone’s tastes. I got all dressed up in a Wild Rumpus costume from a past Arcade and made my way to the island to play. Afterwards, I borrowed a little person to take pictures with some of the things you can get there. Pictured below are things from Sway’s, Kalopsia, Kuro & [Con.] and Schadenfreude just to name a few.
