I been working AM shifts the past two days and will be working AM again tomorrow on my birthday, no I do not feel anywhere close to 29 and still feel like a hyper 21 year old girl 😛 I have also been going for walks with my mum and her work friend the past 3 nights, the back of my knees hurt when I wake up! Takes a bit of stretching before I’m ready to tackle the day, our weather down under says starting from tomorrow it’s going to be another 3 days of 40 degree weather. Eww!

Enjoying this 24hr break between my AM and PM shifts, it was so busy working the morning 7am-3pm at work the past two days because we have a lot of conferences and corporate groups staying with us. They check in for one night and leave the next day it also means no tour groups so no easy check out of a zero balance. I survived though and got just two more days of work left before I participate in yet another walk/jog with my mum this weekend.

No vices tonight other than the usual vents that you all know about or I have already clucked to my friends about, plus my brain is tired and can’t be bothered to make an opinion. Good night ❤
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.
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;
- How to cake it youtube channel, Yolanda’s cakes are amaze
- Tom Hiddleston is back in Australia for Thor 3 😀

I have been a writer since I was in primary school and then been a roleplayer in the online worlds since 2007, it has been both my creative space and my escape when reality is too hard. Over the years, friends and acquaintances have complimented my work and asked have I considered being a writer as a career. I did dwell on it in Yr 11 while still in high school when my best friend and I were doing random collaborations of stories together.
Unfortunately getting to be the next Jane Austen or JK Rowling is very hard for any wannabe writer so I decided to go logically, moving through jobs and career paths until hotels of where I am today. It wasn’t until yesterday while on front desk, my Assistant manager and mentor into being a team leader got a brief read of my Warcraft stories on this blog and it had left her stuttering and almost speechless!
I never thought I would have someone who enjoyed my story and someone who was outside the fantasy world, pixel lands and fellow roleplayers. Someone who is more in reality and never heard of World of Warcraft. She had stated after reading the first two paragraphs that I was in the wrong industry and should consider making my writing into a serious career. It had always been a dream career but only the lucky ones can get successful with the publishers.
Still it left a warm feeling in my chest especially on such a cold day and left me living in that moment and realising that despite my short stories that I post in this blog, I still have that creative talent inside of me 😀
A lot has happened around the world this week in both tragedy and surprise on a personal level, it has also been my four days off and I am back to work tomorrow. I got to watch both Warcraft and Finding Dory on my days off, both excellent and entertaining to watch in their own levels. Warcraft was reaching to the WoW gamer in me and seeing Azeroth come to life while Dory was seeing a movie get a sequel done right after 13 years.
Did a couple of shopping as well which is kinda normal for me every week but I need to ease up to build my resources again especially if I’m aiming for Europe next year. Sadness is surrounding Orlando as the world knows but hope and love will stay love within the LGBT community, I know that we will continue and hopefully the Americans can curb their gun control. As a fangirl with a hopeless celebrity crush I am mourning that Tom Hiddleston is making out with Taylor Swift and torn inside.
Other than thinking he is the real life Disney Prince and Bees knees and thinking she makes great music and a sweetheart to the fans, but he is taken and no longer available, I know he’s way above my level and couldn’t ever think of meeting him in the future but still- its my dream hubby no more.
After deciding to restart the Ame Hayato Chronicles as well as continue writing up the many random stories featuring my human warlock Andais Lu, I have realised after the two days since I posted something in this blog I haven’t done anything yet. Call it procrastinating at its finest, all the ideas are there in my head and ready to be written into a great short story and yet I still haven’t done it. Don’t worry it will happen soon, after I get inspired to do my next fashion tile for Second Life.
In other real life news I am really sick of this back burning that our fire brigades have been doing up in our mountains to prepare us for next Summer because we get severe bushfires. Don’t they realise we need a break from all this smoke or our air quality will be that of Shanghai! x.x
This time I am venting about reality and in particular my family and what is going on at present in my house every time I come home from either work or bestie outing with Mei. You see my sister and her boyfriend have split up about a month ago and though it turned bitter and nasty, they talked again and it was going smooth…for a week. But despite giving advice which I’m all happy to give, to be the listening ears of a concerned mother it is getting all too much!
My dad has stopped caring and gets annoyed with mum and her vents and nosey self trying to figure out what her younger daughter is doing since she isn’t told anything and therefore mum comes to me, every night to talk about the same thing- those two. It has gotten so dramatic and highly strung I have gone to work to seek advice from both current and former front office managers, my two Assistant managers and of course tonight vented a heap to my best friend after watching Civil War.
I have repeated and advised the same opinions and ideas to mum every night but really this has gotta stop, this whole cold treatment going on between her and my sister needs to cease. I want peace in my house! It makes me wanna stay outside longer even if it means loitering around work just for a calmer mind!
At 5 to 9 this morning, our quiet household got woken up by our security alarm going off. It scared the shit out of me and woke up my sister and her best friend (who was sleeping over) out of their rooms. Turned out, our beloved parents had triggered the alarm when they came into the house and forgot it was still on. I also got cuddles at 9:30am when mum came upstairs and jumped into my bed 😀 So happy to report that the parents of the Moscoso home are back!
We all went out for dinner tonight to our usual RSL and had dinner together catching up on what they did in the Philippines as well as what was going on in our end. I’m just so glad they are home, it has been difficult to sleep this past week ever since that incident in the early morning of a loud bang hitting my garage. Paranoia had set into me and took me a while to doze off, good thing I was doing PM shifts this past week.
We are back home from Canberra this afternoon and it is so hot today! The weekend away was nice though all of us unfortunately could not sleep well, a lot of tossing and turning and I only slept 5hrs each night. Going back to work tomorrow on the AM shift and working with my front office manager, first shift we’re on together I’m excited.
Today is also Valentines Day though I spent it with my parents for majority of the day I have made a decision to unfollow my overly mushy friends for one day until they get their love posts done for the day. I have given up chocolate for Lent and not sure how I will cope considering that always on the 15th February all the chocolates are much cheaper.
Song: Singing Towers of Darillium from Doctor Who
I decided to insert songs with my mood posts because they seem to accompany the emotions that are going through my head every time I write up in my blog. I have my usual stalkers so hello all don’t mind me I am chilling out after a PM shift and editting my next fashion tile which will be posted up tomorrow after my Day 6 at work 😀
Cannot wait for the 2 days off, this week seems to have drained me or perhaps that’s just me being hormonal along with internal conflict with the end of relationship issues…anyway! Deciding whether to continue levelling up on my Blade and Soul character or go on World of Warcraft and slaughter monsters with my warlock, I will always be chaos and destruction at heart 😛
Canary Beck raised an interesting question on her blog today, the million dollar question for all Second Life users to be precise- “What would you do if Second Life disappeared?” And raised the question for all her readers of what would we do? Would we pick up anything? Move to another client? Re-connect with reality.
It had me wonder a lot to myself especially with the fact that Aum has decided to take a break after returning from the music festival with his mates. His absence from the virtual world has hit me quite hard if I say so myself but I am handling it better than a year ago with my ex because this time I have a group of amazing girl friends in-world who keep me company and if it’s not them I’m on here blogging.
But back to the question of “What if” well I could probably cope with the loss much better than most users and perhaps move back to IMVU again (it be much cheaper lol). I would still have this blog set up but it wouldn’t be so fashion centric anymore, it would be what I had in the first blog- short stories, diary entries, poems and pictures from my reality. I would love to do more short trips on my days off, I love driving especially into the country side it truly eases my mind.
What I miss from Second Life though; The events, the shopping, the amount of talent and time used to create such beautiful places for my photography, my Flickr account would probably die off because you can’t take that type of amazing picture on IMVU. I’d also miss the interaction I have with the girls though we DO talk a lot more through Facebook or skype (I even have 3 of them on my reality facebook).
Overall I wouldn’t miss it TOO much to the point of depression, staying in bed and sulking over the loss of one virtual world, I’d probably go back to what I was doing before and then some more 🙂
Ok technically I have until Tuesday next week before I return to work but considering its almost end of the work week its safe to not much interesting things will happen between now and then. However I DID cook another dish for tonight’s dinner, my younger sister has been quite social after work so mum has been relying on me and my um cooking skills.
Needless to say I am growing confident in doing dinner for the family and if I’m not on PM shift I will try and do it more often then waiting for mum to do it once she gets better from her healing of her hamstring. Speaking of mum she remarked to me today that what will she do when I return to work next week? I have been home this entire 3 weeks and since her operation been helping her out around the house.
It has got me questioning too because dad and Ange obviously both work too and can’t really stay for many hours each day. Mum has become more independant in how she does things on the ground floor but its getting upstairs is just the hassle for her. I know that with PM shifts I am more flexi, we’ll see how she goes on this. Also Vivid (lights event here in Sydney) has already began, hoping to go soon with Mei before my weekends are gone again.
