Cannot Get Started

I just can’t get started on any of the myriad of projects I need to be working on… I blame the oppressive heat but I’m really making excuses for being lazy and slightly uninspired. I have a whole slew of stuff that I want to release but every time I log in to start getting the ad pictures together I flake and log out. I just don’t know. At any rate, the skin I’m wearing will probably be a gift to my group… at least that’s the plan should I find myself able to make an effort. Yes, I think I’ll keep blaming it on the weather. I really hate summer.

  1. I am like you, in the sense that it feels very difficult to function like a real human under the heat of summer.. now I know people who have real desert and tropical heat laugh at the idea of a Swedish summer, but part of the problem summer has been for me as of these last recent years is the length of the day..

    When you have a day that is 20 hours long.. it does take its toll, especially on a person who couldn’t tolarate the heat and light to begin with.. so I deeply empthise with you.

    I love the images though.. :) when I saw the new photos on Flickr, I am so amazed that I can tell the brand names of various things in SL without having to look at the list you made.. for example those boots.. I knew they were from Shiny Things.

    This new skin is cool too.. it made me think of what make up I saw newly released at BodyShop…even if slightly different colours.

    Go and eat some frozen fruity something and sit and relax when you can.. hopefully by October it will be over in your geographical location :)

  2. I’ve always been a night/cold type of person… People were shocked when I said I was having to move to the desert.. they all seemed very sad for me and now I know why lol. It’s been a trial surviving the past years because regardless of what people say, it’s always hot here to me, even in the winter but at least it’s mildly bearable then. I can’t imagine the day lasting 20 hours.. I think I’d go nuts! As it is I have room darkening curtains in most of my rooms so I can darken the room to my satisfaction. At least I’ll be going on a mini vacation in September to kind of recharge a bit.

    I think I always go back to those boots from Shiny Things because they are soooo well made and I sprang for the full color change hud so they just go with everything. I’d say that’s another pair of shoes I’d love to have irl. :D

    I have to admit, I was totally inspired by the album art of one of my favorite band’s recent releases when I made that skin. I’ve had it sitting on my desk and kept thinking, how can I translate this to a skin somehow… so I mostly just borrowed the color palette and then did my own loose interpretation. I didn’t do the album art justice but it was fun to make a homage to it, so to speak.

  3. I’ve got a friend who lives in Northern Ireland and has the exact same problem we both seem to have..he doesn’t start feeling better until autumn..and that is in wet and rainy Ireland.. he has been given the full blown lable of “Seasonal Depression” even though he is really low key to begin with..and you know, I’d never heard of it until I moved up north.. where people are often said to go mad because of the dark..(and even people would tell me stories of how bad they felt when it got to that dark time of year when its only about 4 to 5 hours of daylight..and I thought it was so odd because I always feel so great when that happens.. )

    I don’t believe that humanity was built on one type of day pattern.. so naturally some of us are very different.. but we, the ones who feel best in the dark, we are a rare lot- my own doctor told me this year, in spite of how I hide my feeling about feeling crap during summer.. admited after knowing me for a few years.. he knows that I am a “winter person”, and that not many people are like that.

    On the other hand, I got a friend living in Tasmania, quite the opposite, Winter Depression, he explained to me, disables him to the point of apathy, in spite of an amazingly upbeat disposition.. but then again, his situation is pronouncedly more common statisticly.

    I think you and I need to take a journey to Sv√§bard!!! Yeah.. I’ve been planning one for long as I go early autumn it would be best, because it would be daylight for 6 weeks straight if I went in the summer… but you know.. out in the middle of nowhere.. the main problem for me is the food.. very limited, and not too often vegetarian or vegan. Another concern would be polar bears. But for a nice cool time far above the arctic circle, I am willing to take that risk. :)

    Make the best of it, winter nights were tolerable in New Mexico for me.. but that was it.. the day still ended up being quite hot!
