The Winter Season Challenge

wintah_002

Hello everyone! Hope you all had a lovely holiday, and stuffed yourselves full of turkey and other holiday food 🙂

It’s another Monday challenge from Berry, which kicks off the opening of (in my opinion) the beginning of December! I always look forward to reading and participating on the posts! I took some photos of Dawn of Radiance, a beautiful little winter themed sim! Do go check it out for some wintery fun.

On to the challenge…

1. What is the December/Winter season like where you live?

I’m a Virginian, so winter can be as moody as an unhappy teenage girl. We’ve had some terrible blizzards, but we also have had many a green Christmas.  It’s typically 40-50F  around here, but it won’t drop below freezing until late into the winter.

2.When you think of winter, what’s the first thing that pops into your head?

Snow, hot chocolate, and  the holidays. Even though snow isn’t a common occurrence, the image of a whited out landscape and enjoying a simple day with family makes my perfect image of winter.

3. Have you ever played any extreme winter sports?

None. 😦  Athletic activities aren’t my strong suit, and I’m sure I’d be falling on my ass if I tried any!

4.What do you like most about this season?

Pumpkin-themed foods. At the end of the day, I’m a total foodie. The minute pumpkin drinks and foods become available, I gobble them up in a frenzy of pumpkin happiness! Snow is lovely as well, but it also has some serious drawbacks and doesn’t come around me too often.

5. Do you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or another holiday during this time of year?

I’ve always celebrated Christmas with my family. I go and buy a tree with my sister, and give gifts just like Santa tells us to. :p

Hope you all have a lovely week!

The Geek Challenge

Hey there! It’s been a bit since I’ve posted here, but Berry’s Monday challenge really pushed me to make a post today. Yesterday was the opening of the Geeks’nNerds fair, which runs until December 8th!

It was my first time at the fair, and I’ve never heard so many siren songs for my Lindens before.. My not-so-inner geek is giggling like a little school girl here. The fair is definitely an event that will leave my pockets surprisingly lightweight, which is a nice change from the normal curiosity I have when exploring fairs.

On to the actual challenge at hand…

The definition of a nerd and geek are as follows (thanks for the definitions, Berry!):

  • Geek- Someone who is smart, enjoys video games, comic books, being on the internet, etc… and usually has a passion or hobby that they obsess over.
  • Nerd – A socially awkward person with a very high IQ. They gain pleasure from amassing large quantities of knowledge about subjects often too detailed or complicated for most other people.
  • Dork- Someone who is a bit socially awkward, has odd interests and is often clumsy. Dorks are typically more noted for their quirky personality

1. What do you consider yourself to be? Geek? Nerd? Dork? None of the above? All of the above?

I identify more with a geek- even if I’m more of the “quiet obsessor”, I definitely enjoy things that are bigger on the inside, occasionally breaking the Prime Directive, and running through Rapture… just to name a few!

11.25.13 The Geek meme_002

This sign made me giggle when I saw it, because it’s so true! In my opinion, it’s human nature just to bicker and fight, but in the end we love a lot of the same things, so stop hating everyone else just because you have a different title.

That being said, I’m a geek you nerd scum! 😉

2. What was the first computer you ever owned? 

Goodness, that’s tough to remember! I sometimes can barely remember what happened a couple days ago, asking me to remember my first computer is like asking me about when I learned how to walk. I do remember being around computers a lot though, so it was natural for me to pick it up later on.

3. When and how did you first get on the internet?

I ask myself the same question all the time. I can barely remember my entertainment without the Internet… I’d love to know in what moment it all began…

4. Which geek fandom do you subscribe to?

I actually really don’t like the idea of fandoms; they are usually young teens unhealthily idolizing stories. I’m most certainly fans of many different geeky things, but idol them I do not. That being said, I really love LOTR. I was a reader before I was on the Internet (and after the introduction of the Interwebz) so Tolkien’s books were such a wonderful place for me to fall into for hundreds of pages. When I found out about Lord Of The Rings Online, I couldn’t contain my joy!

5. Star Trek or Star Wars?

BOTH! I find Trek to be more intellectually stimulating, but I enjoy Wars to be youthful fun in space!

6. How Geeky Are You?:  I scored an 81%! I’m geekier than I thought. Should I be worried? :p

On that note… I hope you all have a lovely holiday and until next post!

Geeks’n’Nerds blog

This fair runs until December 8th, so check it out!

Bad News…

Hello there! I realize I haven’t been posting regularly, but my computer decided to crash on me… so now she’s sitting in Best Buy and I’m waiting for her to come home. 😦

Unfortunately this means I won’t be posting until I can get back on SL with something that can actually handle SL without being on the lowest setting..

Until then,

Lady

Zodiac Blog Challenge

Hello there! It’s another blog meme from the lovely Strawberry Singh, this time it follows matters of the Zodiac! I was definitely looking forward to a new challenge this week, I think they’re very fun to participate in and look forward to! Anyway, let’s get into the Zodiac challenge!

8.6.13, Flower Field_001

Meme instructions: Copy and paste the following questions and answers into your post; then delete my answers and input your own. Don’t forget to leave a comment at Strawberry’s site with a link to your post so we can all come by and check it out!

 

  1. What is your birthday and/or Zodiac sign? –  March 24, so my Zodiac sign is Aries.
    Brief explanation of Aries from What is my sign: People of Aries sign are open-hearted and strong. Their main features are frankness and honesty. Aries sign loves work. Aries sign is true and fair in love. Aries sign is seldom ill. Aries woman is intellectual and extremely strong. Aries man is overflown with ideas and creative energy.
  2. Do you believe in or follow astrology? –  Not really. I enjoy reading it every once and awhile when I see it in a magazine, but I don’t let it influence my life decisions.
  3. Do you feel your sign’s attributes reflect who you are? – Some of the Aries features I have, but most certainly not all!
  4. Have you ever been to a psychic or astrologer either in RL or in SL (are there any in SL?) Never… Unless the Psychic from the Room 306 hunt counts! But seriously, I’ve never felt the desire to visit a psychic.
  5. Do you read your horoscope daily and try to follow any advice, recommendations or warnings it may have for you that day? Not really… I’ve read them before, but I don’t follow the advice  or look for anything out of the readings besides an occasional laugh seeing how different reality is to the horoscope.
  6. Do you have very strong feelings about astrology, either negative or positive? Neither. I’ve never really thought of astrology as a bad thing, although it can be misleading sometimes. I don’t believe in letting someone else or a piece of paper control my decisions.

That’s all for today! I hope you enjoyed and see you next post!

Eryn Vorn

Hello everyone! I recently visited Eryn Vorn, an extremely large park and has a live music venue. When I say this sim is “large”, I mean it’s made up of 13 sims to explore and enjoy. I didn’t visit them all, but I did really like what I saw when I was there. Unfortunately they’re downsizing and possibly putting a membership on these parks, with the offical closure going to happen on August 8th.

7.28.13_002

Aside from the music venue, this sim is more of a peaceful time to explore the parks with some cute spots to dance with a friend or partner. I found these parks to not have tons of activities, but a place to relax and enjoy your time there.

7.28.13_001

7.28.13_003

I’m sad to see this park be downsized, but I hope that it’ll just as lovely as it was when I visited when it reopens!

Until next time!

Rodvik Linden Challenge

Hello there! Sorry the challenge was late, but alas RL got in the way and I couldn’t post on time. 😦 Better late than never, eh?

7.30.13_001

I was taking some photos at Zigana, when this guy clad in god knows what photobombed a completely good picture! If it isn’t obvious, I was quite upset, and let him know my feelings. He just stood there constantly staring at me, and looked like he had no intention of speaking. After about a good 5 minutes of my scolding he blurted out, “Oh won’t you just shut up and let me take you on a date?!” I was quite befuddled at the statement, and I was starting to wonder if he was even alive until he decided to speak up!

I don’t know what drove me to agree to such lunacy, but I agreed to a simple date through a romantic park with this “Rodvik” fellow. Maybe it was the Roman themed clothes that drove me in, but deep down I was truly excited! I hadn’t been on a date in a long time, and there was something odd about Rodvik… something I couldn’t explain.

 

7.30.13_002

I dressed up in one of my most fancy dresses to the gardens of Heightened Passion, a quaint, romantic garden to explore. I met Rodvik there, again clad in his Roman attire for our date. I thought he would’ve dressed up a little bit, at least something more than day clothes! I let it go easily, since clothes are only clothes, what matters is on the inside– and it isn’t the genitals– not all the time at least. <.<

We chatted about various topics while exploring the gardens, and I decided to take a picture with him on the bridge to always remember this moment between us. He kept his hands to himself, always polite, but later in our explorations things became… a bit intimate to say the least. I asked him to come back to my trailer for some good “clean” fun!

7.30.13_003

“Draw me like one of your French avatars, Rodvik,” I asked, lying on my chaise. Rodvik turned away extremely quickly to avert his eyes from the apparent nudity in front of him. He made a quick excuse about the next day’s work and left before the dust in my trailer could settle!  I was pretty sad to see him go so soon, but this lunacy wasn’t meant to be.

Maybe he’ll like my alt better? 😉

I’m still alive!

7.28.13_004

I know I’ve been pretty inactive with the posts, and this one is more just telling you I’m still alive! The sim I’m at right now is Eryn Vorn, which I will do a proper post on soon.

Regarding Eryn Vorn, it’ll be closing on August 8th, so if you’re interested, head there soon!

More info here: http://calasgaladhon.com/

EDIT: Forgot to say that in the picture it’s me dancing with my alt!

Anyway, thank you for reading and hope you all had a wonderful weekend! See you for tomorrow’s blog challenge post!
