More of my Project 365 images!

031.  hanging with vivi

Day 31 of 365, hanging with Vivi.
Vivi is one of my oldest and most trusted friends in SL.

One of my favorite things about Vivi is the way she plays at dressing up in SL!

032.  chairs

Day 32 of 365 (02.01.10), chairs.
Carson and I sitting in our matching chairs in our skybox. 🙂  I was in an experimental mood and played around with different filters on this shot.

033.  logout edit

Day 33 of 365 (02.02.10), logout edit.
I didn’t take any pics this day, so I cheated and grabbed the screenshot from my logout.

When I pulled up the image I thought my av looked a little lonely so I played around with the image in an attempt to make it a little blue and cold. I tried, anyway. 😛

034.  random headshot

Day 34 of 365 (02.03.10), random headshot.
Sometime last year, I wrote a blog post on giving your avatar subtle facial expressions.

I’m still trying to look for ways to give my avatar facial expressions that aren’t cartoonish, and I use the lip sync feature a lot. I think I’ve managed to make my av look like she’s surveying a scene with a little bit of surprise and contemplating saying something? 😀

035.  testing poses

Day 35 of 365 (02.04.10), testing poses.
I’m testing some poses I made for a blog post! Making poses for my blog is fun 😀

Make Your Friends Smile :)

My friends Gogo and Wilma recently put up a couple of pictures on Gogo’s blog, in which they were sporting some really cute pink t-shirts intended to brighten a friend’s day and make her smile.  I thought it was really sweet of them so I got one of the Team Lizzie t-shirts, too 😀

T Junction Team Lizzie 01

I don’t even really know Lizzie except for what I see on her blog from time to time, as well as from all the hard work she puts into helping run the iheartsl bloggers group. Something about seeing my friends wearing these pink Team Lizzie t-shirts just kind of spoke to me, though; I guess it made me reflect on friendships and relationships. Let’s face it, SL is like any other community and will have moments of toxicity and it can be pretty easy to dwell on that.  In the end, however, what’s really worth the expenditure of our energy?  Not the negativity and drama fests, that’s for sure.

And so, yeah, while my wearing the Team Lizzie t-shirt is an acknowledgement of Lizzie and all her colorful commentary, great blog pics, and her contributions toward making the iheartsl bloggers group work, I’m also wearing the t-shirt in this post because I feel compelled to acknowledge the other message that’s behind it:  that there are good people out there who have their friends’ backs and are willing to proclaim it to everyone.

Yeah, I realize I might be sounding a wee bit Pollyanna-ish right now, lol.  But you know, when someone does something simple like put up a plurk saying “Hey, I really like you a lot :)” (something I’ve learnt from personal experience with Carson 😀  haha) or make a t-shirt letting you know they’re rooting for you… it just feels really, really good.  And I like being a part of that, even if it’s just peripherally and with a t-shirt.

Okay… on a side note, I’m becoming addicted to making my own poses for specific blog posts.  I made four for this particular post and I’m going to make them free just for this weekend at my store! I’ll probably have them up sometime later tonight. ❤
