Hope’s SL Yearbook Challenge!

Hello fellow yearbookers!  I was so looking forward to do this challenge, I missed posting it on Monday as it is last Monday’s  meme. 😦  Thank you Ms. Berry for this wonderful challenge once again.  It helps us all bring out a piece of ourselves and share it with the world and community of Second Life.  This is a great output for people, like me, who don’t have the desire to do much writing lately, as well as for those of you who “DO.”

I purchased, the loudmouth, but became frustrated and abandoned that route. I will have to get back to fiddling with it.  I eventually settled with the [PXL]OpenMouth PRO TEETH and Anypose expression hud.

It is a great meme and I am happy to share my submission with you.

When I read this quote, which is one of 7 or 9 cardinals rules for life, it inspired me to use it and share my avi’s smile with the rest of you.  Here is the link to those rules, as well as podcast: http://www.williamshaker.com/9-cardinal-rules-for-life/

“Smile. You don’t own all the problems in the world.”- Unknown

(I should say, all the problems of SL.:P)-Hope


Keep Smiling everyone. ❤

The Virtual World According to Hope-Create a book cover to show your avatar in fiction-Meme


This post is for the Monday Meme theme hosted by Strawberry Singh.  I haven’t had a lot of time to do much blogging with all of the in-world and real world living, it is quite a juggling act.  I have been trying to catch up and find my SL self.  These memes allow me to bring out and share my creative side in SL.  So thank you for that Ms. Berry and friends who always encourage me to try these memes.  I hope you will enjoy it, as much as I enjoyed coming up with a book cover.

1.  I received the  Animare Pose & Animation System by YT Recreant Hud, as a gift from a special friend.  I found that using the Animare Hud, was great help, especially when moving the body parts to its desired position.  You can achieve more flexibility with this tool, and your avatar will be able to achieve a closer position to the look you want.  Above, I was able to tilt her head a bit better, where she could face the very grouchy daisy. 😛  Her face wasn’t as constricted.

2.  The AnyPose Expression  Hud by Phate Shepherd, was suggested to me a while back.  There are so many facial expressions your avatar can make.  You are able to pucker your lips, frown, shift eyeballs to look in different directions.  This tool is great, helps in achieving a good stare down.

3.  As we enter, into the start of March 2014 Round of Arcade-one of the best things to have, is of course the Arcade Pre-loader HUD.  It will surely help in your long-awaited shopping/gacha-ing!

4.  Also, I find that props, which in this case are the daisies-always makes photos more fun!  Of course always helps in making your photos extra special and helps us achieve the message we want to share.  These are extremely fun to own.  They are still available in Mad City.  There are 5 to collect.

Hope floats…

Here I go.


So today’s Monday Meme, was per request, by Winter Jefferson for the lovely Strawberry Singh.  She has been going through things and could use some “love,” and support.  First, I would like to share and embed this little video in which I shared with a very special friend of mine only days ago as she too, is going through a difficult time. 😦  This is a part of a movie that I think about, I hope it will help you during this very difficult time, and remind you, just how special you are Ms. Berry.



Take a few moments on your blogs or chosen social media to tell us about a time you faced your own personal nadir.  When were you at your lowest point? How did you pull through and triumph to become the dazzling specimen of humanity you are today? When you reached out… who was there to help you back up again?

What gave you hope?

For me personally, going through the loss of my mother in 2005, was the time when I was stuck in a rut.  I think I can still see and feel the repercussions of losing her in my life.  As far as hope it’s where I learned to become a bit stronger and always hope.  Although not too long ago, I did experience a sort of loss, emotionally and on a more professional level.  I did hit my hopeless point over and over again, but I have awesome friends.  They have helped me through it all.  You are blessed to be surrounded with such friends too.  I only had a handful of friends to help me cope recently and are still helping me at this very moment.  I thank you my friends.  When you read this you will know who you are!

The photo above is supposed to be my interpretation of HOPE floats.  To me it means, that even when it seems hope has left your side, it doesn’t mean that it leaves us forever,  but only temporarily.  It will come around once again, if you let it, because it is inside of each and everyone of us.  It is a select few that help us get through the pain and sorrow, as we open up ourselves and begin to hope again.  I wish you all the best and anyone else that is going through a difficult time.  Big hugs as well.  I have come to the conclusion that hugs are medicinal to the soul.

HOPE’s Zodiac Meme

My horoscope for today reads:

 Today August 11, 2013

daily overview

You may be a little obsessive today — especially when you’re reminded of a debt someone owes you. It may not have anything to do with cash, but it still can cause some stress.

(Oh wow! is also true) lol


Hello peeps.  Its been a while since I actually had the desire to blog about something.  A good friend of mine managed to convince me, to try a Strawberry Singh meme.  Which will be my very first blog trying out one of her challenges.   It is the Zodiac meme.   I actually had my avatar in this look I chose, for over  a week now.  Swimming around the big ole’ sl grid, and trying to decide what kind of photo I wanted to take.  I think I was spotted out and about, in various places, like in MadCity rain, Collabor88, a meeting at an undisclosed location, SL Fashion Week, and various other places.  So, I was a busy little Pisces trying to find her way around the  oceans of second life and its many splendors.  In the photo below, I used the *FN* Pisces poses,  which is a commonly used symbol of this zodiac signs with two fishes swimming around, one upwards and the other downwards.
