Hmm' it seems I spent my entire THERE existence as the other-half of a virtual couple. When I was fresh in THERE only a few weeks I met Percy and had my own personal guide to there.com,we ended up being in a friendship/relationship that lasted almost my whole experience in THERE. Living 1000's of miles apart (Boston to London) THERE was our world. After THERE ended we ended. Now THERE is back and Percy is happy with his new fiance' (congratz btw) and I'm standing in THERE wondering what to do with myself. Well now I know what the "Happening Now" schedule is for! Turns out RaceSmart is having a party, I love driving so that sounds great. It's at BambooCrater Xtreme 4x4 Park...oooh Tuv's. Looking at the party go-ers profiles I saw many in a club called guinea pigs. Right now we all are Beta Testers because the world isn't fully open. But people like RaceSmart beta tested as soon as THERE2 started getting ready. She was amazed and grateful to be chosen, and her and Zip (living in the same house) saw it all first hand and got to share exciting bits with us.RaceSmart talked more about Beta-testing before the Gold Fun Passes got in. She was surprised at the ones that were exclusively chosen to participate, but felt the choices represented a wide variety of Theriens and were well made. They ranged from people like virtual site owner Thumdar, moviemaker/gameshow host Francis_7, to her friend who said: I can't believe they picked me all I do is paintball. At the party people also discussed compasses (you have to download b-boy...Bedican that's the one). I told them I didn't have one. Go to Thumdar.com you'll find everything you need I was told. More people showed up including Korben who took me for wild ride on the track, including getting stuck in the JND platform which he said always happens. lol' Just when I thought the party was over Korben took me to paint the THERE town red (or purple you might say). We played Crack when I said I never did before and met up with a lot of Theriens, and the night was so much fun, one of the best I spent in THERE, so good thing I found out what was "Happening Now"!

Party with RaceSmart telling us that after a while people didn't know if it was her or Zip talking. Doh'

 I logged into THERE really late last night, the only time I can get in it seems. I tried a few times earlier and got the world is full message. drat' I looked at the remarkable amount of running events but nothing caught my eye. Suddenly excited, I'll finally arrange my inventory! I stood on a deserted ~ so I thought ~  mountain in the middle of no- there, starting the long tedious task of going through my things. I didn't get very far when suddenly I saw what seemed to be right out of the new Transformers movie I recently saw a giant robot coming right for me. I was actually shocked. lol' So suddenly I was face to face with maverickfred and this colorful Aussie took me out of my inventory doldrums right into a THERE adventure. Wow what a time! phew'

Surprised by maverickfred!

Last night I saw some of the building you can do and why even when you think there is nothing to do in THERE your wrong. THERE is full of wonder and surprise. On the way to Fred's layout we passed by the White House by next3d and even though I accidentally fell out of the robot it was nice to see it's amazing detail again. Fred's place was a down-under spectacle. Kangaroos welcomed us with waterfalls and Santa Claus. Fred remarked it was a little early for the Christmas stuff but as he explained and showed me what he built I could see how much fun he really has in THERE. At the end we met who he called "the ladies" who were all playing cards. They weren't too surprised to see me. They thought my Cheetah outfit was sooo cute and that Fred knew everyone- just like Michael Wilson. What a night, truly satisfied.. I logged off to drift away to Kangaroo dreams of THERE down-under and all the places I have yet to explore.

 It's funny how you can be struck with waves of happiness, pure utter joy. Kind of how you feel when you see incredible beauty surrounding you in nature. Watching a sunset on the ocean from a cliff overlooking the splashing white waves. Being in the water itself just floating on your back with the sunshine warmly kissing your face. If it's because of life circumstances that joy strikes you such as a promotion, a new lover, an long-awaited accomplishment it makes sense. But when it just happens in your everyday existence and fills you with strength and health it's something so very different.  When it happens because of something inside, when all feels right with your life, with the decisions you made and you find true peace it is incredibly amazing. Sometimes things come full circle. Life has a way of hitting you hard and when it stops shaking you relentlessly it is so sweet. One time I got caught in a traffic jam in the Holland tunnel in New York city and what was normally something you just went through without thinking about became something almost intolerable. I smelled the diesel fuel which I hadn't noticed before, I stared at the ceiling thinking about the ocean crashing through, worried about the possibility of accidents and the length of time we would all be stuck there. That's how it is with life, we can feel trapped by our circumstances without a way out. When the traffic let up and we moved after 45 minutes I was so happy to be free, almost ecstatic. Sometimes life sets you free. It's suddenly good, peaceful, amazing. Periodically you laugh, naturally, spontaneously, and genuinely. It's like the movies we have all seen. Everything starts out beautiful, seemingly happy but something is nagging, lurking, breathing dangerously in the background. WE see it all happening to the the victim and we just want to scream and shake them and say no don't trust them, don't go in that room, run! And of course they don't. We watch helplessly as someone methodically tries to take their happiness, and drain every ounce of their life away. But they fight back, maybe not the way we would but they struggle and they win. The victim and the agressor always get into a physical struggle, and they are often at some perilous height about to lose their life. It looks like the perpertrator is winning and then by some miracle the main character we have come to know and are rooting for is on top.They are at the cliff with their opponent about to fall and they have a choice: to save the enemy's life or just let go. Whether it's memories of when the nemisis was nicer or just their respect of life they try to help them. Then the killer suddenly has a new knife and stabs their arm and hand and trys to pull them over. And then they do the only possible thing they can they just let go. At that point everything was tried, explored and exhausted. And now they are truly happy with no guilt, shame or remorse. Never to be in fear again. Circumstances have changed, there is unexpected relief and hope. Joy hits them and someone says something sweet or funny and they laugh, they just laugh. Maybe a just a little more than the sweet peaceful moment calls for, but we understand, we know why and we laugh with them.

 An American writer once said "cure for an Obsession: get another one." Some people say it's healthy. You get an idea in your head and you just can't let go. You work at that project, that dream until it's real, until it's amazing. You long for your results. Admiration of what you've accomplished, will accomplish and an unrelenting desire spurs you on. That is good, in a way. When people tell you your dream is impossible you don't let it stop you. Leonardo Da Vinci added single strokes to his paintings for years and refused to give certain comissioned artwork to the owner, continuing to perfect it. Was he obsessed- yes. Yet he became one of the greatest masters of all time. We find obsession is in all of us... so powerful and so dangerous. Actually the most famous love stories of all time explore obsession. What is scary is when the obsession is not an idea or a project but it's you. It's a person. Someone just can't let you go and you find that it's gone on for so long your not sure if you truly want to be free. Sometimes it's simple obsession you just need a situation resolved, people will go to extra-ordinary lengths for the apology they believe the are entitled to, or the revenge they can't stop themselves from exacting. They sit by the phone waiting for that new or old love to call and then get disapointed~ but can't stop hoping. That's simple. When it's not so simple that's when it scares you so deep inside. When the obsession turns to stalking, and you try to stop them but they won't. The only thing you can hope for is they will fixate on something else because if they don't... the unspeakable may happen. What makes a mind do this can't really be determined. Some say there is an unseen attraction between the dominated and dominator. Some polar magnetism that attracts and repels marking the tension between the stalker and his prey. So the innocent mouse in it's panic and fear moves in such a way as to excite the cat to play with it to either an accidental demise or a frustrated viscous deliberate death blow. Interestingly the cat may actually become bored or distracted. And the injured mouse may or may not have the strength to run away. That predator can suddenly stop being interested. Leaving you to hope they can and will get another obsession, finally stop stop looking at you. Then you would be free, at least for a while...

So tonight in THERE I was really enjoying my stuff. Trying on everything in my inventory and just deciding what I wanted to keep and what I wanted to sell/return to get the 900t's I needed to rent the house for my club for just one more month. I did get the tbux that I needed and now I got nostalgic about my things. I forgot how much I really enjoyed what I designed and all the memories that went with it.

samsyn1

The outfit I designed and wish I was wearing when Samsyn showed up....

So basically I was just relaxing and about to go to an event when I got a surprise visit from Samsyn. He had his staff Icon in his logo (which looked awesome) and a really cool Samsyn jacket. Which ofc I was wearing a mis-matched outfit, two pieces I had decided to get rid of...ugh why didn't I. So now I'm caught wearing a bad outfit, but realizing it would have been weirder to suddenly change I stayed in it lol.

I never met Samsyn before so it was interesting to see what he was like. He was pretty interested in his job, commenting on my eyes being too shiny, but then with a sense of humor and charm he commented on their nice shape and the non-groucho like brows I was sporting. Which is what every girl likes to hear. 'blush 'lol. I wanted to repay the kindness and I told him I really liked his jacket. He said it was his second favorite possesion and to my surprise he took out his favorite one. It was a giant buzzsaw hoverboard thing! Good thing we were in THERE otherwise my clubhouse would be chopped to bits and we would be headless.
