Radio playing softly some singer’s sad sad song
He’s singing about standing in the shadows of love
I guess he feels awfully alone
She says I know exactly what he means
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
And it’s a sad, sad feeling when you’re living on
But it’s okay
Lonely Ol’ Night ~John Mellencamp~
It really doesn’t matter what song is playing, when a person is lonely, everything makes it that much worse. There’s probably not a person out there that hasn’t felt loneliness at some point. I am the most perfect specimen of an introvert…..ever, and even I get lonely sometimes! It doesn’t matter if you’re among lots of people or no one, the loneliness is inside! I have lived in the city, and it was lonely there, seeing people out and about everyday, everywhere I went. When I was on the road it was terribly lonely, also! I spent just about all the hours of the day in the truck, either driving or killing time when I legally couldn’t go any further! I wasn’t afraid, being a lone woman out on the road, it was just easier to stay in the truck. There were so few women driving trucks alone back then, that men always had some sort of reaction to me. The best case is they would chat with me while I ate meals in the restaurant, the worst case is being asked if I’m a hooker just because I’m walking across the parking lot in the truck stop! Needless to say, being a fairly naive farm girl back then, I just wanted everyone to leave me alone, although I was lonely. I read a lot of books, listened to a lot of music, and did meet some very nice people along the way!
Today, this post is all about home furnishings! IMMERSIV has a new release and it’s the Student Lounge Room. It’s an extensive set, with lots of animations for singles, couples, and adult! The set consists of a mattress chair and a mattress bed(both have a colour change mattress via drop down menu), an incredible shelving unit complete with books, a record player and various bric-a-brac, two sizes of sideboards, and a table. This is perfect for anyone who likes the rustic look! Or, you’re a poor student who’s just looking for a place to hang out! I’m not sure if students today say ‘hang out’, but that’s besides the point! 😛 The Student Lounge Room can be purchased as a set or individually, drop in at the main store and there’s a set to try out upstairs!! If you’re viewing on flickr you can click the link at the bottom to get over to my blog to check out another photo of this set.
Now, please remember that I am a bit of a hoarder. My large inventory proves that, but I’ve also managed to clutter this living space up already! I won’t get into all of it but if you’re curious about what something is, just drop me a line….it’s mostly gacha stuff that I’ve collected over the years, and I’m glad I did. It all comes in handy when furnishing a room.
For another lonely ol’ night at home, I’m wearing the High Waisted Ripped Jeans from Tetra! They fit the Maitreya and SLink bodies, perfectly I might add!
The Vintage Tied Tee is from a previous Luxe Box, from Foxes! I don’t think the Luxe Box items are available after, so you may be out of luck!
I love short hair styles, so the Anime 05 from Dura Hair is right up my alley!
I’m wearing the Alex mesh head from Logo, with the Everly skin in honey tone from Sinful Curves, along with the Lara mesh body from Maitreya and the casual hands and mesh feet from SLink.
