Leon – Yearbook Challenge

Leon's yearbook photo

After a lengthy discussion, Leon allowed me to post his yearbook photo from the year he graduated. He wouldn’t tell me exactly when it was taken, but I assume it must’ve been in the mid 90s. C’mon, Leon, it can’t be that bad. At least it’s in colour! Maybe he’s just shy about it, because he was still on crutches after his motorbike accident and the scar on his jaw was still fresh… Is it me, or was his hair a little fuller back then, too? No, just kidding!
 

Today's outfit:
shape: my own (not available)
skin: Fruk
hair: Dura (old group gift, no longer available)
shirt & cardigan: Epia
crutches: [ht+]

Chanda – The Silence of the Prims

chanda - silence of the primsThis is my entry for Strawberry Singh’s SL Movie Poster Challenge.

The new flickr

First of all, my paw says hi!
That’s why I didn’t really plan to write a blog post today. I considered Berry’s new teach me something meme, but didn’t really know what to write about.

But now that everyone is raging about the new flickr layout, I thought I could make a super quick tutorial on how to kinda get back to the old look and feel. It’s really simple.

Ok, now here’s my new flickr start page. Just click “Edit” in order to get back to the old look of the page.
flickr_new

After you clicked “Edit”, this is what your page will look like:

flickr_old

Maybe I should add, this is really meant as an option to edit names and descriptions of your pics and not as an alternate way of viewing them. But for me, it does have all the information I want to see – faves and views, not just comments, for example. Now that I know where it is, I can live with the new look of flickr.

Chanda – Guilty Confessions

chanda - guilty

We all know, Chanda is a bit of a wild girl. But what did she do to end up in prison? I’ll leave that to your speculations.

The purpose of this picture and post is Strawberry Singh’s guilty confessions meme

1. Inventory maintenance

While not as bad as Berry’s, I constantly wrestle with my inventory myself. I recently managed to get it just below 80k (79,329 as I’m writing this).

2. Shopping

Yes, I will admit it – I love my shopping sprees. Usually, I end up spending too much money on too many things I never use. Since I have started to blog, however, I took the chance to pull out some of these things, if only just for a picture.

3. Being insociable

If it’s not for a sale or event I want to look at, I hardly ever leave my home in SL, and I’m not very comfortable if I do. I’d never approach a stranger and it usually freaks me out a bit if someone I don’t know IMs me without a real purpose (like begging *sigh* or asking about stuff I’m wearing, etc). Same goes with (customer) IMs that are just like “hi” or “hello”, or even worse “Hi, I have a question.” and then… nothing.
Before this ends as a rant on its own… don’t get me wrong here. I’m not unfriendly (I hope), I’m just very shy. Once I had the chance to get to know someone, I’m fine talking to them or being around them. (HINT: If you want to get to know me, try not to scare me when we first meet.)

Heroes – Ion – The Monk

heroes - ion - the monk

The third picture of the heroes series. And because it was so fitting, an attempt at the haiku meme (ok, this is not exactly how it was intented, it’s about this picture, not my SL in general, but well, I tried.):

At dawn, a young monk
Training hard to become strong.
Tea awaits inside.

Ion’s character of choice is the monk. Ion has more than often been the victim of bullies at school and is not one for violence himself. He would love to be strong enough to defend himself if needed, but would much rather avoid conflict at all.
