I walk in the air, between the rain, through myself and back again…

[►]  While I was out today, I ran across this sim: Eagle Crest.  It’s modeled after an old run down carnival and a fantastic spot to take pictures.  It’s very dreary and weathered.  I really couldn’t help but be reminded of my hometown, a little hole in the wall town in the southern US.  I guess on first impression, you’d think I’m your typical southern girl.  I have the accent, I have the smooth slowness of the southern stereotypical southern girl’s personality, I have the huge family, spread out from one end of the county to the next.  But in reality, I was never and have never been your typical southern girl.  I was kind of a square peg in a round hole there, always looking for a way out.  I was never meant to be a small town girl, much to my parents chagrin.

When I got a little older, I started to rebel in whatever way I could..whatever way I felt would show everybody that I would definitely be the one getting out of that small town.  I dyed my hair crazy colors, I sneaked out and went to concerts at clubs I shouldn’t have been able to get in, I wore short skirts and lots of jewelry…and I tried desperately to get lose my accent.  I’m a bit older now, I still dye my hair, wear short skirts and lots of jewelry and I did make it out of that small town.  I never could lose that accent though.  This Counting Crows song, Round Here, will always and forever remind me of those years.

Enough rambling, huh? Sorry it’s 6:30 am and I haven’t really slept yet..so please excuse the introspection.  The look I put together for this post is kind of a throw back to me, age 16.  There’s so much I love about this post (including the new mesh skirt I just released at .evolve.) *insert shameless self-promotion.  The new skin from Body Co, Petal, is one that I fell in love with as soon as I saw it.  I’ve been looking for a skin to make me look a lil bit older for awhile and this one does! I need a break from looking like a kid.  These new boots from *Crazy* make me very, very happy too.  I find myself loving mesh more and more all the time.  I’m also wearing a lot of accessories.  My two favs are the new necklace from je suis; an owl watch and the mesh bag from *Tea Time*.  That’s about all for now.  If you made it through reading my ramblings, you get a gold star. ☆
