It’s almost time…

Sitting in snow

Today’s date caused me to do some reflection (apparently while sitting in the snow — brr!). I never do the resolution thing, but I have spent much of this week thinking about my goals for the year to come, which include lots more writing, lots more dancing, and, I hope some more advanced education. Other things, too, are on my mind, but they shall remain between me and my journal. (*winks*)

Most pressing question right now: do I brave the crowds of New Year’s eve? Or do I stay on my solitary sim, sipping cider? (Okay — It won’t really be cider, but I couldn’t resist the aural alliteration…) In any event, I hope those of you going out to celebrate have a blast of a time, and that we may all raise a glass — real or virtual — to better days in 2011!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge — Week 8 — Green

Ocean Green

As an Ocean-girl, well, green is one of my two main colors — the other being blue, of course. And, I have so very many green items in my inventory that this week of the challenge didn’t even necessitate shopping (alas). The hardest thing, for me, was not being able to showcase so very many beautiful green things. On the other hand, it was lovely to get the opportunity to show off some of favorites:

Hair: Truth — Bebe — Champagne
Skin: Laq — Vilda 09 Fair Glow skin (blonde)
Eyes: Ibanez — ColorGlow Eyes — Limlight
Prim Lashes: Glam Affair — Regina 12
Makeup: Glamorize — Soft Smoke Eye Makeup — Evergreen

Pants: Ricielli — Eliza highwaisted pants — patterned
Boots: Bax Coen — Prestige Boots — Green Suede
Necklace: Baiastice — Stone silk necklace
Belt: Pixel Mode — Sol Leather Belt — Black
Pose: Ricielli — Wall Poses — pose 1

About ‘a dream of oceans’

<

My readers are no doubt quick enough to catch the play on words. When I was deciding what to name the blog, well, something about oceans naturally sprang to mind, given my love of the sea, and my avatar name. And if you look through my posts, you’ll note that love of the sea reflected in many of them. Oceans also appear frequently in my RL dreams; often I find myself living in a tiny cottage on the shore and enjoying the sea I see too infrequently in waking hours. Except, perhaps for here. So, this is both ‘a dream of oceans,’ and ‘a dream of Ocean’s.’

I joined SL — somewhat reluctantly — when my bff went off to grad school and took a course in internet policy. One of her class requirements was to join SL, create an avatar, and change its look. She was super-enthused about the possibilities whereas initially I didn’t understand the attraction of the little pixel people and places — though I did love the colors, and the flying and teleporting! It became a collaborative effort for a little while there. We both drifted away from SL after not too long, but a few years later, I came back. And have been enjoying every moment of it. (Okay…maybe not *every* moment…but certainly enough moments to plan to stick around!)

My ostensible reason for creating this blog is to show off SL fashion and other wonderful things in-world that catch my eye. And I certainly will do that, to the best of my (limited) ability. However, knowing myself as I do, i may on occasion drift far from fashion and other flashy things.

If you’ve made it this far, i thank you for reading.

~Ocean
