NanTra’s newest release for Fantasy Gacha Carnival is a pose series based on Joan of Arc. To be honest although I knew of her it was really only in the vaguest of terms. I knew she dressed in men’s armor to fight in a war and that she was burned at the stake. But everything before and in between I was at a loss. Thankfully there’s a podcast for that. Stuffed You Missed In History Class has their very own episode titled How Joan D’Arc Worked and it’s only 20 minutes long. A lot less time than it takes to read the Wikipedia page might I add.

#WhenIWas

WhenIWas

I usually don’t follow much on Twitter but recently there has been a major trend with the hashtag #WhenIWas and it really resonated with me. And it made me think back on all my experiences growing up as a female. For the most part girls are brought up being told (or conditioned) that our goal in life is to find a husband and get married. And this involves heavily on us being attractive to the opposite sex and acting a certain way to attract a male even to the point of “fishing” for compliments and dumbing ourselves down. As young girls we are told to say “thank you” and smile for strange men who give us compliments on the way we look. Regardless if it makes us feel uncomfortable or not. Why is this okay? And why is this still going on today? Case in point, I’m almost 32 years old and my mother still tells me to look “decent” in public and that I need to find a man to take care of me, one who preferably likes big girls as she likes to point out. Clearly, I’m fucking over it. So here’s my list, because really what girl only has just one instance of harassment? These are only just a few of the big ones that really kind of shaped me as a woman.

#WhenIWas 8 years old I was sexually molested by my Aunt’s second husband. I didn’t tell anybody until I was 18.

#WhenIWas 12 years old a male teacher used his laser pointer to point to mine and other girls breasts and butts. He never got in trouble even when I did go to the Vice Principle.

#WhenIWas 17 years old a neighbor of my parents who was also a policeman at the time grabbed my hand and tried to put it down his pants. I did tell my parents but they were afraid of retaliation so until he moved whenever I walked outside to my car my dad would follow me.

Let’s Get Social

Road Trip

Berry has brought back her Social Media Meme only this time rather than questions she has asked us to make a list of all the social media platforms we use under our Second Life avatars name. Honestly other than Plurk and Flickr, I’m not very active. The only time I post on my other profiles is automatically through WordPress. I’m pretty much the same in my real life, I rarely feel the need to share my thoughts or feelings unless it’s just something I really need to get off my chest.

In The Army Now

in the army now

I was very sad when the owner of Tag! Gacha decided to close the doors so to speak (the Gachatopia sim is still open) on one of my favorite events. Which is why I was super happy to see that BellaGacha (of The Gacha Gardens) has decided to pick up the torch and run with it with The Gacha Guardians. Some things stayed the same, some changed. There’s still a HUD and a bonus room. However now you don’t have to win a ticket or worry about mystery rares, but rather just play 10 times to get a key for the chest in the bonus room. And I have to say I really like that there was no set theme, so practically every designer had a completely different set from one another. I’m really hoping this event flourishes and thrives not just for the wonderful creators but for us shoppers to have something a bit different and more rewarding.

The Door

The new round of The Liaison Collaborative opens today and it’s all about the home! I was a little “eh” cause I don’t decorate my bubble much but seriously this theme is amazing. And coincidentally enough exactly how I’ve always wanted my home in real life. I love the bright oranges, pinks, blues, greens, you name it. I want it. This door and wall is part of a gacha set from Concept at 75L a pull. And only 6 commons (walls and a couple columns) and 3 rare doors.
