  1. I'm glad and truly thankful for my small circle of family and friends who make my life so much brighter by choosing to be part of it. 💕
  2. Just an idea, but there are still some universities around the world who have a learning portal in SL. Some have classrooms. Explore around a bit and see what you can find? Perhaps talk to a few of them and see if you cannot access one of their classrooms?
  3. Wonderful topic @FairreLilette! I've had a few goals that I've set out to achieve in Second Life. 1. When I joined Second Life, my real life had changed completely. I went from teaching, performing, driving, walking, active in my church community and playing sports to staying at home in a wheelchair off and on. I'm a former classical singer. I used to be an assistant professor. I was also part of a local medieval choir that went to many local and national competitions throughout the year, performed locally seasonal and special charity events we were asked to take part in. After I had to stop, I felt scared and lost. If it hadn't been for my father, I've no idea what I would of done. He always encouraged me to keep climbing and reaching for my dreams even if those dreams had to change. I always knew they would have to. It was just much sooner than I would of liked. Almost eleven years ago when I first joined Second Life, I found a really beautiful community that has been my main spiritual source and family all this time. The community holds dances, events, concerts and community gatherings. They have a weekly gathering called Bardic Circle. It is a time to share poetry, stories, music and friendship. One of the most beautiful and peaceful moments in my week often time when I get the chance to go. One of my goals upon joining SL was finding a musical community or an outlet to sing in some capacity. I began singing weekly years back on a regular basis within this community and it was really rewarding, inspiring and humbling. Watching others recite, sing, tell stories and find the courage to do so is incredible. It takes so much courage to share stories, music and literature with others and finding so many willing participants in the two hour event is really just humbling. The best word I can think of to describe it. I stopped singing a few years ago when I went from hard of hearing to officially deaf. I began feeling very isolated and alone during that time because again my entire world was changing. I had to learn how to listen differently than with my ears. I had to learn to strengthen my signing skills in BSL and ASL. I just felt I had nothing to offer in those events anymore. Lately, I've began slowly wanting to sing again so one of my new goals is to get back to where I was singing among some of kindest and accepting people I've ever met. My fairy family. I'm going to start training my voice again on my own and relearning how to use vibrations to feel and remember the pitches and music. I've even started pulling my guitar out again. I hope I also find the courage to share my music again here in SL. So a goal I attained, lost and wish to regain. 2. Four years ago I wanted to start a regular fashion blog that I maintained weekly. I met that goal for four years until back in January since real life got in the way. I'm now working on a new blog to jump start writing inspiration and improve my photography skills for self improvement. 3. For years I've been looking all over for a pair of hearing aids for my avi. I finally found a cute pair with a color hud so it felt good to find a mesh pair finally. Super happy about it! Please excuse my novel.
  4. There are a few things that I'm more than happy to drop Linden into. My first and foremost are my zooby babies when it comes to their upkeep, clothing, hair and furniture. Their upkeep isn't that expensive. The creators come up with the cutest things for my munchkins and I find myself having a really hard time not buying them something new on a weekly basis...which is why they get new stuff on a weekly basis. 🥰 😕 Second thing is my hubby. I can't resist sending him items when I'm out and about at shopping events that I feel he will like since I love to shop. Him and I both do, so we tend to shop for one another quite a bit. It is an excuse to spend money and have it not be on myself. 😍 Clothing and hair for me. I don't have many of either, but the hair and clothing I do have are from my favorite stores. Certain clothing styles that I'm drawn to are hard to find because I go for medieval, vintage, plain dress modest clothing. I've been lucky to find some creators who are fabulous with those styles and I stick with them. I tend to buy a lot of fatpacks because if I like a style of something, I enjoy having it in different color and pattern options. Quality over quantity. Plus it drives me batty when my inventory gets past 7000 items so I'm careful how much I accumulate. Lastly in the past I did spend 20,000 L on a collector kittycat that was rare I had been searching for, for about four years when I used to breed them. I still have her and she was worth every linden. 💗🙂
  5. Sorry for being off topic and not having a pet peeve, but I have to say that color reminds me of a really deep set Ruby. It is lovely. Good taste!
  6. My hair in both worlds is long because I feel strange with short hair so I guess hubby is dating Rapunzel. Short hair doesn't suit me. I will have to tell him because I don't think he knew.
  7. I love some of these. Wanderer and Wayfarer are very imaginative. Magical at least to this elf. I may have to get that name change now.
