Recurring Dreams

Recurring Dreams

I’ve always had vivid dreams and through the years I go through recurring dreams that just never seem to stop. I’ve been having this one dream for about 3 years now and I’m not sure if I’m supposed to learn from it or anything, but it seems like I’m not getting the hint if there is one. It all starts with taking a trip somewhere, sometimes I fly, sometimes a bus, and one time it was even in a space ship, I think I watch Ancient Aliens too much! 🙂 So anyway, I’ve gone on this trip and stayed there an undetermined amount of time and as I’m preparing to go back home I realize that I have too much stuff to fit in my luggage. I try to pack up my belongings in the hotel room or wherever I’m staying and I can’t fit it all in. And the bags I brought with me in the first place were too many as it was. I feel this panic inside that I can’t take all my belongings with me and then the panic that if I do get it all packed I’ll never be able to carry it all, which then leads to the worry of being late for my flight or ride or whatever. When I first started having this dream I woke up all sweaty and panicked like it was a life threatening disaster, now I wake up from it just a little unsettled, I think I must be getting used to it. This isn’t the first recurring dream I’ve had for an extended period of time. Back when I was on the road I had a recurring dream about two or three times a week. It was about me losing my teeth….now, I’ll understand if you laugh at that, but it was a weird thing to have happen that often. In the dream I’d put my hands under my mouth and try to catch the teeth as they dropped out. It went on for about a year and then out of the blue, it stopped. I am a believer that dreams are your subconscious trying to tell you something, so I had done some reading on the subject and found out that this dream means that there is something going on in your life that needs fixing, that the status quo isn’t right. Well, when I read that it all made sense. I wasn’t where I was meant to be and once a few major things changed in my life the dreams of my teeth falling out had gone away. So I’m not sure what this one is telling me, but I wish I could just learn my lesson and move on!

So, I’m sitting here on a train platform in Germany with way too much baggage to carry and I had to leave some of my things behind, needless to say it’s like a bad dream! INDUSTRIE is a new event in Second Life and it’s one that I was looking forward to for quite awhile leading up to it. KraftWork is one of the sponsors of it and they have released the U Bahn Backdrops gacha set. This is a set of fictional German train station backdrops, signage and benches and it’s a really neat set. There’s 12 common and one RARE to play for. I’m using the ‘Tramhaltestelle Bahnhof’ backdrop with dark benches and the ‘Meine Fantasie XXX’ sign. INDUSTRIE runs until October 23.

I looked far and wide to gather up the luggage here! I’ll start with the far left, the ‘Travel Luggage’ from ::Tartessos Arts::Furniture is in the back and the ‘suitcase’ is fron is from the ‘Adalyne Autumn Collection from Serenity Style and available at the current round of Tres Chic. Underneath the suitcase is the trunk that holds the ‘Vintage Suitcase’ stack from {what next} which is sitting two seats to the right of me. The ‘hat box’ is from a gacha from Apple Fall, as is the ‘worn suitcase’ behind it, the ‘plaid suitcase’ on the floor in front and the other ‘worn suitcase’ to the right of me on the floor. The large trunk right beside me with the hat box on it is from the ‘Lazy Weekend’ gacha set from ::THOR::. The bag at my feet is the ‘Travel Bag, another version’ from a gacha set that I coudn’t find at the fame femme main store. So I’m not sure if it’s still available.

The pillows are from the ‘Slumber Party’ gacha set from Tres Blah.

And as for my comfortable travelling outfit? It starts with the ‘Laura Sweater’ from erratic. I put one of the six colours of ‘Ribbed Knit Leggings’ from Simply Sage on since I’ll be doing lots of sitting on this trip. The ‘Gideon Boots’ are from NX-Nardcotix and exclusive to Shoetopia. The ‘Arwen Hair’ is from Mina Hair. As always I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

And last but not least….the pose! This is a pose from the ‘School Days’ sets A & B from Le Poppycock. The set is actually a pose/prop set with school desks and other education paraphernalia attachments to make yourself young again and goofing off in class. It’s available at the ULTRA event until October 8.

Only Here For A Little While

Only Here For A Little While

Gonna hold who needs holdin’
Mend what needs mendin’
Walk what needs walkin’
Though it means an extra mile
Pray what needs prayin’
Say what needs sayin’
Cause we’re only here for a little while

I want to remind everyone that these are words to really ponder! I know I tend to bring this topic up quite a bit, but it’s a point I want everyone to understand! A lifetime may not be as long as we’ve planned on!

I’ve got some new and exciting things going on in this outfit today, so lets get started, shall we! Firstly, the Simple Tank is a new release from {MYNX} and who doesn’t love a simple top to kick around in! It comes in five standard sizes plus fitted versions for Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass & Physique), TMP, and Belleza(Venus, Freya, Isis). There’s fifteen colours to choose from on Market Place.

The Dark Style Fair 3 is on until June 4 and Bokeh has a cute little set out for the event! The Padlock Earrings and Septum Ring come in either gold or silver and are resize via drop down menu! A padlock can conjure up all kinds of wicked thoughts! hehehe

There’s 3 days left in this round of The Thrift Shop and the Leopard Tattoo from Pimp My Sh!t is an exclusive there! It’s 50% off for the duration of the event so now’s the time to grab it. It includes a black or brown(seen here) tone and comes in the tattoo layer for classic avatars, or is compatible with Omega and TMP. I think I’ve got a little bit of animal magnetism going on here!

The poses I’m using are from the Headshot A & B packs from Le Poppycock! The sets are available at the ULTRA EVENT which runs until June 15. The poses come with two forms, poses to use independently or to add to other poses to move just the arms! They’re a great set of face framing poses. One thing I’ve always wondered about some pose makers! How the heck can anyone think of names for them all! The Headshot pose sets include names like The Hot Mess, The Shrinking Violet, and The Gold Digger! How fun is that?

The Fishnet Punk Nails from Veechi are at the Dark Style Fair 3! The set includes ten colours and they are compatible with SLink, Omega, and Maitreya.

The bathing suit bottom I’m wearing is from the Cassie bikini from Absolut Vendetta. It’s fitted for Maitreya(seen here), SLink and Belleza mesh bodies! It comes in a whole bunch of colours and each is HUD driven with colour change strings.

The Nelly head is from Genesis Laboratories. I’m wearing the cream skin tone with make up and eyes that’re available with the head.

The Samira hair is from [RunAway Hair].

I’m on a pretty platform overlooking the sea at Summerwind South!
