I can not even imagine that in today’s world that I would still be hanging around just to see what would happen next. In a span of time of ten years later did I ever think of the possibilities of still being in Second Life. I can not even begin to look back those years. I can not even imagine what another decade will bring to my virtual self.
In looking back over those years, I seen and went through changes untold, all for the good in the end. Who even knew that a decade later with my go like hell attitude to getting the job done would still be there, digging in getting my fingernails dirty along side those who has the same passions as I do.I have said it before and will say it again, nothing will stop me from doing the things I enjoy doing. Working as a Hostess, sailing, fund raising, being a leader you can look to in good and bad times.And then to be struck down with cancer, it tried and lost the war, my army world wide rallied behind me and I beat it on my own terms with a determination unlike anything seen before.It didn’t have a chance thats for sure. I used everything I could get my hands on plus.I’m living proof even in a virtual setting such as Second Life I have made one heluva mark in my own legacy and history. Like I said, NOTHING will stop me, it just won’t happen till the Fat Lady sings at some point in the far distant future.For me, a decade that went by, and another now facing me at the threshold of life, both real and virtual awaits.
Not much is happening at the moment since everything is quiet on the home front, and even then my mind is working on a few ideas for the winter. Working on a project elsewhere has kept me on my toes and the results are still a good ways off before I have to be done by the end of October. I’ll get there soon enough I guess.
With the holidays coming up soon thinking about what to decorate my place both in and out of SL I guess is next on my list. Haven’t figured out what yet but eventually I’ll get it done as well.
Talking to a friend today she told me about what’s been happening with her and I’m just proud of her, even if she is across the Atlantic.
Laying in bed last night I was trying to figure out why one outfit wasn’t looking right, so today I looked in my appearance tab and there was the answer there, saved me a few lindens in the end and it looks great even.
Pushing aside some things that’s bothered me and now I can concentrate on doing some fun things once I come off of vacation soon, even then I don’t think I’m quite ready yet as is but I’ll see.
So, off I go again on another adventure!
Not withstanding any difficulties that may fall in my way yet, I have been getting ready to get back to work soon supposely. I can tell however that my level of energy is not what it should be and believe me it’s gonna take some doings to get started in preparations for the 2017 relay season. But, I can tell that my heart’s not in it. I can tell just by the way things had gone this past season left me wondering if 2017 will be any better than what 2016 turned out to be.
But I have to force myself to get ready, I have a mission yet to complete. People’s lives depend on my getting in and getting my hands and fingernails dirty once again to fund raise and to help keep the research going to find a cure from cancer. Maybe it’s too early yet to go back to work yet and maybe I should wait until after the holidays.
Ever since the Wrapup weekend I could tell things have been different, the summer heat especially drained me much more and made some things worse than it should be. All I know is getting plenty of rest is in order to recharge and build up my energy as much as I can to go the distance and come out on top a winner, and I will.
Words can not be spoken as the Relay community recieved word of the passing of one of the most dearest members of the community. I was on skype with Cinders Vale a few nights ago when we found out thru a notice from Trader Whiplash about the passing of Catt Kala Gable. A long time resident, she became involved with the Relay For Life community in 2007 and went on to making her legacy well known.
Catt was very outgoing to all she met during her time, she was a driving force in many different areas and was well known as the curator for the Memorial Garden on ACS Island in Second Life.
Saturday evening the 17th of September at 5p.m. slt in the Relay dAlliez sim, a service of celebration was held, the build was done by Grace Loudon and was very lovely. Trader Whiplash of T1Radio started the evening by sharing some thoughts about who Catt was, he told of such a powerful team member as well she was to the Relay Rockers team how she would just take on doing events without asking and the team done very well.
Arizona Ballinger read some poems and shared next, then Woodstock Burleigh spoke of their friendship together and even tho’ you could tell he was very emotional over the loss, he held in there and spoke very highly of her, Nuala Maracas shared as well about the memories she had and will cherish those.
Nuala also shared how Catt was in for this year’s relay weekend, and at the end when Catt logged off, little did anybody know it would be the last time ever, and in August she passed away from her fight with cancer. The Relay Rockers I know were just devastated from the loss from Catt’s passing but I know deep down they will relay onward’s in Catt’s memory. I know I will in 2017.

Of all the times since relay I have been kicked back relaxing and resting and trying like hell to rebuild my energy. But as hot as the summer has been that was proving to be difficult at times and believe me it hurts.
I can only suppose even as a survivor and again we don’t have it easy that on a daily basis we still struggle at times to get up and running for the day doing what we need to do. I can certainly vouch for that fact as I have already gone through a lot this summer in trying to get back to near normal as I can but it’s been tough.
Even when the tempature is in the nineties I still can’t handle the air conditioning as I get cold within an hour and have to turn it off and just have the fan running to move the air in my place. Nothing like catching a damn cold already if you ask me.
So I go on and do whatever I can do to make things easy on me and take each day as it comes, and when bedtime hits just crawl in bed and………………
A while back I went into my Captains Quarters and did a complete makeover! I figured since I am more of a pirate type person I might as well look the part LOL! Yeah I know, I have that “what da hell” look and it can be a bit intimadating at times. But never the less tho I get my work done and go on about my bussiness without a care in the world, or in this case somewhere in deeeeeeeeeeeep space!
So here I am, another day come and gone and not a sign of stress anywhere to be found……yet. I been pretty much been relaxing and resting and trying to regain much of what I had lost as far as my energy goes but geeesh, this summer had taken quite a hit on me when it gets up over 90f degrees and it justs makes bike riding difficult, or even a short walk for that matter as well.
Things did get off track a bit but I am going to get everything back on track in the coming days and get up and going even better than ever come hell or high water, because I said so!Just goes to show ya, I mean bussiness dammit!
