Revisiting Future Shock – sci-fi machinima in Second Life

By Inara Pey – Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World. Visit Revisiting Future Shock – sci-fi machinima in Second Life for original post.

In September 2016, I previewed a new machinima series, Future Shock, by Pryda Parx. At that point in time, the first episode had just been released, and Pryda was kind enough to allow me see the next two in the series. What I saw was intriguing in terms of story, setting and production values. Given […]

Look to the Future

By Pru Rexroth – FabFree – Fabulously Free in SL. Visit Look to the Future for original post.

Look to the FutureWell Hello Fab Free! This will be my last post for the year 2016. I can’t really say 2016 was a bad year any more than I can say it was a good one. There were amazing moments in this year and some heartbreaking ones as well. That said, I’m looking forward to 2017. The future appears bright and promising, I hope it remains that way. My sincere wish is that 2017 holds only joyous moments filled with love, laughter, and adventure for each and every one of you. Mush and sentiment aside, I do have some lovely group gifts to share with you. The first is a fatpack hairstyle from Pr!tty, the second a jewelry set from Bella Moda. Let’s get to it!

Pr!tty Group Gift Avery

The side-swept hairstyle Pru is wearing is a recent group gift from Pr!tty. To get this FREE gift simply join the Pr!tty group (it’s FREE to join) and check the past notices. There was a notice on December 25th that included a full fatpack of the Avery hair. In the package you’ll get the hair in two variations (one has heavier roots than the other) and all the matching color change huds. Additionally there is an adorable flower headband that I chose not to show. One thing I would like to note is that this hairstyle does have a little wisp that comes across the cheek. If you look close you can see where it cuts into Pru’s cheek just a tad. This doesn’t bother me really, sometimes it isn’t cut into the cheek at all. This will vary depending on your personal shape and or what mesh head you wear, so please keep that in mind. Otherwise I think this is a really lovely FREE hairstyle from Pr!tty.

Bella Moda Group Gift Martini Jewelry Set

I love the fun playfulness of this martini themed jewelry set by Bella Moda. This mesh jewelry set is a FREE group gift at Bella Moda. The Bella Moda group does cost 1 linden to join however. Also, the way the gift vendor works, you will be required to pay the vendor 1 linden then be instantly reimbursed. The set includes the necklace and matching earrings, all of which have resize scripts. Now all Pru needs is a cute dress and a handsome stranger to kiss and she’ll be ready for a New Years bash!

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

#655 Do you want to know your future?…

By – SL Destinations R Us. Visit #655 Do you want to know your future?… for original post.


Now that we no longer have the Mayan calendar or its expiration to worry about, how are you going to know what predictions to follow now? What if the best predictor of your future is actually YOU? Would you really want to know the future? To know I believe comes with a price…

Here are 3 reasons why we should never know the future.

1.   Not knowing takes the pressure off – When we think we should know, we get stressed out when we don’t know things. But when we see that not knowing is our natural state, we can actually open into that, into a state of curious detachment, of childlike wonder. What’s going to happen next? Will it be a pleasant surprise, a learning opportunity, or both? We can see that, in a sense, we can’t know anything. We’ve never known anything. So when the time comes to make a decision, we just give it our best shot. And we know that we can always adjust if we need to.

2.   Not knowing fosters learning – Would you still be in your current job? Would you have stayed if you had known the outcome?  I think we can all point to bad experiences that we would not have chosen—a difficult job, the death of someone close to us, struggling with a health issue… yet most of our growth comes from pain. I’ve seen paraplegics and cancer victims smile as they relate the growth that has come from their condition, insisting they wouldn’t have things any other way. Often we only recognize in retrospect how valuable an experience has been. 

3.   Not knowing brings the joy of surprise – Of course we don’t want to know when bad stuff is going to happen. But what about the surprise call from a friend? What about the windfall you didn’t know was coming? What about the laughter of a child or yet the birth of your child, nieces, nephew. A lot of the joy in life comes from surprises, and knowing exactly what’s coming would take all of that away…

Let’s face it, not knowing is the natural state of things. When we want to know things that we can’t know (like the future, or the right course of action), all we create is frustration for ourselves. Just being yourself and taking it day by day is the best path to take.
