The rain mixed with the cold weather of winter is never a good combination especially when you have been working for seven days straight at work, this is me currently. I did it as a favour for one of the guest service agents who wanted Friday off and rather than split our days off, we decided to swap our weekend completely. I don’t mind, I have tomorrow and Monday off and hoping that the rain holds off tomorrow so my family, bestie Mei and I can check out Vivid in the city.
I was originally going to vent under the sub heading of Neko Irritation but decided not to and instead just place it here in my diary entry. All my good friends know that I cannot stand fair-weather friends (A friend who is only a friend when circumstances are pleasant or profitable. At the first sign of trouble, these capricious, disloyal friends will drop their relationship with you.) I have had my fair share of them online, none in reality of course because it is a whole different ball game beyond the computer.
But online, you have so many and it usually occurs of when they striving to climb the pixel social ladder or wanting a boyfriend or a man who is DTF, I sadly had to release a fair-weather friend last night after my gut feeling became true. And it wasn’t just me, two of my other girl friends noticed it too and also deleted this friend. It is quite unfortunate because I knew her on IMVU for the past 5 years? And she helped me re-do my avatar when I returned to that pixel universe. Let’s just hope she knows what she is doing…

Family time last weekend after AM shift, I don’t get much time with my cousins but when I do it is always crazy in a good way
It started off cruising when I woke up this morning after an enjoyable dinner out with the family last night for Mother’s Day. Checking my usual Second Life facebook of what everyone else in my friends list are doing at present when I came across a post I had commented on about three days ago and it was suddenly alive again with new comments. The original post was made by an acquaintance who spoke about wanting a companion in-world but found herself always batting away the standard horny men in any place she went to.
A lot of us females had agreed with this sentiment, I had personally added it was getting worse with the increase of shopping events and new clubs that were very hyper-sexual and the lack of morals surrounding people because they could hide behind the anonymity of their avatars. It wasn’t until a new comment was posted by one of her mutual friends, a man that the only mutual friend I had was her and what he had commented was simply appalling. He basically said that because we dressed our pixels in “half naked” clothes or lingerie, we were putting ourselves out there to be cat called or receive the horny messages from the men.
This is just a case of slut shaming and victim blaming like it occurs during a rape case, that the woman who was assaulted shouldn’t have worn a short dress or mini shorts, it is her fault that the man had raped her. I was so angry at what this douche had said and I wasn’t the only one, I replied to his comment saying that us females should be able to wear what we like, what we wear is not an open invitation to be harassed by men even if its our pixels and just because we have certain fetishes or kinks it does not warrant us to rude behaviour. Needless to say it went over the man’s head and he couldn’t seem to bring himself to understand what the rest of us were telling him. Instead he called the original poster a “snobby bitch” and this is why no man respected her.
Freeform upfronts were on today and there was no Shadowhunters season 3 announcement, after all that talk on Instagram last week after Spoiler tv released an article saying that they had quietly renewed it. Why would they quietly renew it, if it had been renewed we would have gotten a live announcement on Facebook just like what they did last year when announcing Season 2 to the fandom.
I think they haven’t announced it yet because it is either pending or they want us to get hyped up for 2b being released in June, not long to go now so can’t wait to see it, though the two teasers they released yesterday was so-so, more Climon bullshit with the appearance of them sleeping together, as an avid Clace fan, Clary’s first time is suppose to be with Jace and that is what makes it even more special after everything that has been thrown at them as a couple.
But I’ve already vented about this on other Shadowhunter instagram pages and shared opinions with other Clace fans, we will wait and see what happens especially with the arrival of Sebastian, the real brother of Clary and another pursuer of her affections.
I haven’t vented in either its own sub heading or my diary entries since last year and this is a good thing, I haven’t allowed negative juju cloud my small space in the cyber world or allow anger to take up my mentality. However I will vent about something this early morning before I head into bed. Originally it was gonna be spitting anger two days ago, now that I have clucked to my girls in the Hen Den and told my bestie Mei, I am feeling a lot better.
Now those who read my blog dilligently noted that I have been returning to IMVU, confessed between myself and a couple of the girls in the Hen Den we had agree that Second Life has become hypersexual in community and new events. I have noticed it majorly and I don’t even go to the adult sims or clubs anymore. It is increasing especially with the overwhelming presence of teenagers with no restrictions of age group on that virtual universe.
Since returning to IMVU, I decided to re-create a public space for myself and anyone who wanted to hang out when I was online. I was also looking for a homey area very much like my cottage on SL. Thus my New York apartment originally designed for East Highland high character Elizabeth James was re-used and became my own apartment. My group of girlies absolutely love it and find themselves staying there chilling out if alt tabbed or working. Anyone who is friends with me, know how passionate I am when it comes to being original even if its the virtual world. In both style and home decorating, I pride myself in doing highly detailed rooms.
Which is why the next bit had me so mad all day, one of the former friends/enemies that I knew from EHHS days decided to enter my apartment when I was offline and wishlist a whole lot of the decorations I have in the public room. It is called being original and creeping into my apartment is just stalker levels! Though I admit I creeped her wishlist too and that is how I found out about her wishlisting the stuff from my home in the first place. This isn’t the first time she’s copied me though, she has imitated my look but kept her blonde locks while doing it. I wish people stopped copying, originality still isn’t dead, they should try it.
I watched Beauty and the Beast last night with a group of work girlfriends at this event in our local cinema called Chicks at the Flicks, never been to one before and enjoyed the experience as much as I adored the movie! Dan Stevens won me over as the Beastly prince ❤
Tumblr is hooked on the growl he does when in Prince form, I admit I am besotted too 😛
Not posting up a new fashion tile, that is still currently in the works but I will post this month’s random photos that I have taken either in my cottage or in new sims I have discovered on Second Life.
(Taken at home, four days ago by my blogging corner. Top is by Altair, hair is by Dela)
I have not logged into the virtual universe in four days, I have been working the morning shift and come home to either watch Netflix or write up more short stories for my Ame Hayato chronicles. It is not that I haven’t been inspired or the lack of outfits to blog but I am finding more interest and fun in collaborating outfits for my Yakuza on Polyvore and writing about it here.
(Taken at a kawaii sim, entire outfit is by Zenith and hair again by Dela)
Don’t get me wrong, I do like creating photographs in the virtual universe and even discovered how I can make all my photos very high definition and keeping it like that when it uploads to flickr, but with the same old tiles that I release and the same theme that only appears to be increasing in world of the less is more when it comes to clothing, it is making me feel very meh about the place.
(Very hi-resolution picture in my home sim, top is by Azuchi, skirt by Crazy Kitty and boots, a group gift from Jian)
The toxic personalities of those who live online 24hrs and seem to forget about their loved ones in reality is increasing and a sad realisation, my own boyfriend does not log on unless it is the weekend because he would only log on if I am around and our time zones in my Summer months always clash and it is too late by the time he finishes work during the week days. We are going to meet in August when I travel to London this year and our long distance relationship will become very real.
Moving forward with this blog, anything related to fashion posts will be both a mix of Second Life and the Polyvore outfits I have made for Ame.
(Taken at the same kawaii sim this time wearing Parfait’s new coat, the milk box is by Lovefox as are the star stickers on my avatar’s face)
It is so stinking hot! Like ridiculous at 40 degrees, I am born in the Summer but as the years have passed I have grown to enjoy cooler and Autumn weather much more. The weather in either New Zealand or England is more favourable for me to handle. It is especially annoying when my uniform is of that stiff fabric that you can’t breathe in and being at the front desk of a hotel, I have to wear bloody stockings too! Eww…

After a chilled out five days off though one of those days included going for a walk in the Blue Mountains, yes I drove 45mins up into my local mountains and went for a walk around our local landmarks because the company of myself when everyone else is working is quite enjoyable. I have returned to work since last Friday and the weekend was chaotic with dodgy guests who just aren’t trusted or causing disruption. Just got tonight and tomorrow then I have my weekend again 😀

I think the vice I got again is related to those on Second Life who make the videos of their avatar dancing, product value I understand to show what you are offering but those girls who do it to purposely show off their huge pixel tits or backside, you are better off going on those cam websites and displaying your real body if so bold -_-
Normally this post between gifs and fashion tiles is a continuating of Ame Hayato’s Chronicles or a diary that includes my weekly 5 likes but tonight I would simply like to express my concern and sympathy for my friends in the United States. My family from the Philippines living there, my Transgender bestie, my Afro-American roleplaying girl friend and my fellow SL fashion blogging Latina. I and the rest of the world are just as scared and behind you, it will be better!
Like your current President said in one of his final speeches “The sun will rise tomorrow” and it will continue to do so for the next four years, even with a Republican president, Senate and Congress you are a sturdy people and will persevere. If it feels like it is going down the drain I have a spare room at my house here down under that you are welcome to live in 😛 ❤
I got another proper weekend off which meant tonight I got to hang out with Lana again in the city though mum had a dinner with her side of the family at our local RSL. She wanted me to come but I wanted to tell my bestie about where I am up to in regards to my character Ame Hayato and her stories. It was also a very hot today today and is going to be warm tomorrow, stayed cool but I do not like it when we have bushfires whether back burning/controlled or suddenly done by some stupid person who did not put out their cigarette correctly while driving.

No vices tonight despite mum annoying me and trying to guilt trip me in not attending her birthday dinner, I already had dinner with her and the rest of our family on her actual birthday! Boss lady was kind enough to give me AM shift on that day and PM shift the next day so I didn’t have to worry on an early bedtime.
I am at work this afternoon but that is ok, it is roughly 5hrs until home time and when my weekend officially begins and weekend I mean everyone else’s normal Saturday-Sunday, I have both days off! I hardly get them free because I work in the hotel industry, looking forward to more movie/dinner times with bestie Mei 😀

I have one vice for tonight and it has been nagging me for the past month because I keep seeing the same girls do it but you know this generation of teenagers are horny little shits, I sound old saying that…oh well! The porn gifs posted on Facebook using the tumblr link, for some reason Facebook doesn’t see it as offensive but oh pixel pictures are? I’m sorry, what?! This is real people doing the dirty in animated format! -_-
My boyfriend has gone away for 2-3 weeks with his mates to Crete so while my bedtime is better for myself and earlier, I still miss seeing him after I finish my PM shift and then he comes home from work too. Because of this large absence in my life I have been occupying myself with random online things in between shifts. I have a timeline and arcs for Ame’s chronicles, I have been on/off playing Legion and getting more inspiration for my warlock’s short stories. I have also been utilising Pinterest as well to aid me visually for writing.

Tonight I only got one vice to vent about which is a good thing because I am less angry on everything that happens around me in particular on Second Life but this pet peeve is still irritating me and that is of Copy cats/Clones– Girls who mimic my appearance online or change it to try and give it their own style when I try and be original while still keeping my favourite personal trend of Sailor Moon/kitten/pink and black.
Day 3 of work today and so far nothing too dramatic going on at work and I even got time to continue my story board for my Lotus Hexad trilogy. Counting down still until I get to watch Suicide Squad as well as flying out to Hawaii, need to start packing for that soon.
Second Life facebook and people’s statuses though, what irks me is the girls who are known for having many men complain about how they can’t last in any sort of relationship maybe because word spreads of how many males you have conquered and its not attractive at all. I wonder have they ever thought about this, not every bloke likes used goods.
I haven’t started my trilogy yet either and I keep adding more details into my little notebook, I have the opening chapter ready just need to motivate myself to type it all. Anyway, these are my five likes;

Ever After High’s latest Netflix movie: Epic Winter
Though seriously why is this even a thing in this day of age with the battling of two amazing comic fandoms around the world. I think only since DC has stepped up its game onto the big screen and not just with its tv show, the negative nancies who exist within the Marvel fanbase are stirring up trouble and pointing fingers at “how bad” the DC films are. For example, Batman vs Superman came out this year and my bestie and I went to see it in gold class.
Absolutely loved it! It was darker than the light hearted Marvel movies that have already been released and we grown to love but it was done in typical comic fashion (not that many people picked up on this). The reviews weren’t great at all and Snyder was ridiculed for directing it. I personally saw no problem with this film and applaud Gal Gadot who portrayed Wonder Woman at how amazing she made the Amazon princess to be.
This year we also watched Deadpool, Captain America: Civil War and most recently X-men Apocalypse. Again though Deadpool was very adult humour and silly/cheesey in many of its scenes both Mei and I enjoyed the film, Civil War had our emotions on a rollercoaster of both happy and sad and scared that our favourite characters would die. It was overall a very good film done in the best Marvel knows of promoting and showing their franchise.
X-Men has always had mixed reviews and a couple of flops -coughs- Last Stand anyone? But I personally enjoyed Apocalypse soo much! The younger version of our A team were on point and especially Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, she was bloody awesome! So rather than the two fandoms fight against one another can’t we all just rally together and be content and happy. We are living in the years of when our favourite superheroes of our childhood are being brought to the silver screen. Be grateful we get to watch both sides and see what the film makers can show their interpretation on each because yikes, you all need to chill out!
