Forever Grateful…

Sometimes you never know what kind of things life will bring, but through good or bad, I forever grateful for friends who are always there no matter what. It’s a pleasure to know that when I need a ear, a shoulder, a hug, or a laugh, I can count on certain people to ALWAYS be there. NO MATTER WHAT, kinda like FAMILY!!!! (Ok, I digress…lol)  This past week has been a bit rough rl and who really knows where 2012 is taking me…but I’m so blessed to have Khit, Gladi, Toshi, Emerald, SweetiePie, Dre,  and of course Rickie! Having a support system in you is like no other! Even though you may have not known what to say or even know the complete story, I am forever grateful for all the small things and each smile you gave me this past week! Even though we are many miles apart…you all are so very close to my heart! I truly hope that I am just as good to you as you are to me! Even though one of you kicked me in the shin today, *rolls eyes*, I still love ya! I couldn’t go another day without telling you all that you mean so much to me! Thanks for everything!

That’s right, I am on another soapbox! As I was told, this is my blog…and I can say  and express whatever I choose! Thank you Ms. SweetiePie Sugarplum! Most definitely true family (def. 16), always supportive, caring, non-judgemental and encouraging! Apparently the word family can be applied in may ways! It can be defined in just as many ways as it can be applied. It means different things to different people based on their personal experiences and understanding. Everyone’s perception is different! So do you, or do your…WELL ERR UMMM NEVERMIND!!! I won’t even go there again…that was the last post!

So what does family mean to you?

The World Outside My Window…

People often wonder why I stay in nowadays…but hell it’s crazy out there! Go out for what? It’s safer on the inside!

My small circle of friends and family, I keep them close. The world outside my sl window is a strange place. I guess to me the relationships that I have developed in world are real to me. To so many others, there are no boundaries. I would never see myself with my sister’s leftovers! Especially not someone my sister was partnered to at once. Where they do that at? It’s like Sister Wives! I’ll take him Monday and Wednesday. You can have him Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday! You can only have him on Sunday, because you’re the baby! You can’t  go out on Friday, it’s my turn? WTF??? I couldn’t see myself doing that to my sister rl or sl. I am so glad my sister’s Khit, Gladi, and Toshi, have respect for themselves and each other! We would never!!! It’s like tasting your sister’s….ughhh! Hell to the nah! It’s less drama inside my window. I don’t have to be a prisoner of stupidity! I don’t have to first hand witness the strange relationships! That’s just nassy! I was disturbed enough to come out of my blogging hiatus! People get real! If you are doing this in second life…what are you doing in your first life? I hope folks get a clue in 2012! Happy New Year! I’ll be in my own world tonight!

~The Wondering WTF Piece of Risse!

Who’s with me?

Risse is embarking on a new journey! My second life has become even more exciting with many ventures and projects that are underway! From being a host to Development Manager of the Virtual Basketball Association to owning my own spot to loving and cherishing my sisters and loving my hunny bunny! I am enjoying it day by day and look forward to what is coming in the future! So pack your bags…and join me! Hold on…the ride may be a little bumpy as we go! Pack light! Leave all that extra baggage where it’s at! No need for all that extra stuff…only bring what’s necessary and let’s go!!!

1,000+ Visits!!!

WOW!!! It may not seem like much, but it’s a lot to me!!! Considering I am pretty amateur  to this…and I don’t blog that often having over 1,000 visits makes me want to write more. Since I will be having more free time in sl since I am pretty much a free agent now,  I can devote more time to the things I love! Shopping, dancing, exploring, meeting new folks, profile sniffing, and maybe even a little building! Who knows? Look forward to more features and spotlights! I do have a few ideas up my sleeve…so let’s just see where it takes us! More to come later!  

What's next????

 

~Pondering Piece of Risse…

Yo! What up?

Yeah, yeah, i know it’s been a minute since I’ve posted a blog, but that means life has been exciting! I’ve been hopping around the grid, meeting new people, hosting a new spots, and doing my thing! Elite Entertainment Management and Brick House have kept me pretty busy! All the events, all the fun, and  oh let’s not forget shopping!!! I have done my fair share of shopping around the grid as well hitting all kinds of sales! Well, a lot has happened over the last few months since I have blogged and I must tell you it’s been interesting! From Birthday parties to weddings, from pregnancies to breakups-makeups-switching partners-breakup again-makeup again-and breakup’s maybe for the last time, to meeting folks and ditching folks, from making lasting friendships to realizing who wasn’t a friend…I must say through it all it’s been a real blast! Now hardly any of this is my story…but hmmm I bet I have you wondering who’s story it is!  Stay tuned…you never know when, who, or what the next blog will be about!!!

Everyday can’t be sunny!

Sometimes, even in your little perfect world…you can have grey skies and gloom! Even so….you can have a nice backdrop despite what you are feeling in your world!  My av, as you know…is a reflection of me. Therefore, often times what i feel is reflected in my virtual life. I was feeling a little down and grey skies helped me paint the emotion of  a lil dreary…but found comfort near this peaceful waterfall! And look…the sun is peaking out from behind!!!

Gloomy...but peaceful!

Too Analytical….Moi?

So….I have been told over time the following…

Risse…You’re overthinking!

Risse…You are too damn analytical!

Risse…Damn you testy today!

Risse…Don’t think so much!

Risse…You asking too many damn questions!

WHY? WHY? WHY???

Well…in rl…I am a Medical Laboratory Scientist!!! Some call me the lab worker lady, the mad scientist, the icky lady (only Khit calls me this!)  or more than likely have no clue what I do! Well, you should know that the work I do is very important! Since this week is National Mediacal Laboratory Professionals week I thought I’d tell ya!  I analyze blood, body fluids, and tissue! I am the person behind the scenes who’s work affects 70% of all medical decisions!!! Whooot!!! That’s right…your blood comes to me! I do the highly complex testing  that provides the information for the to your doctor for the differential diagnosis!!  Don’t you want an overanalytical person taking care of that for you??? A person who doesn’t see you specimen as just another tube of blood. A person who realizes that each specimen belongs to a person.that person could be you, your brother, sister, mom, dad, aunt, uncle, friend…whoever!!!  So with that said…I want you to take the time to watch this video entitled, “A Life Saved”… it’s a good watch I think! It highlights the role of the Laboratory Scientist! Enjoy!
