I Never Claimed to be Saint...

Lately I've been in this kind of dark place in my life. I'm missing someone, a lot, going through a bunch of changes, and have some huge decisions to make about my life. I've really been stopping to reevaluate and reassess most aspect of my sl and rl lately. 

My name is Frost, there's a reason I've got that name and I didn't give it to myself. I'm known to be cold, aloof, distant... And I've never much minded people having that opinion of me. Might have even encouraged it. 

But the truth is, I do have emotions. I don't show them often or to many people but when I do let someone in they see I am a lot less ice than I project. Well, now I'm opening up to you all... I really wanted to push right into that in this piece. And as a writer and photographer, well, I get to do that and make it into art. Which is kinda awesome. 

I think exploring different places is one of my favourite things about being a blogger. Finding cool places that fit every different mood you could possibly have, it's a job perk. There's sims for happy, for crazy, for rockin, for sad, for angry... And that's a dream for photography and blogging because you don't always have to be happy to produce art. 

In fact, some of the best art comes from pain, sadness, and loneliness, in my opinion. So being in the slightly darker mood I've been in I went searching for a place to suit that and the look I'd put together for it. I stumbled upon the amazingly cool Beck, One Caress which is a lovely, flooded, fantasy sort of place suited to the mood I've been keeping lately. This stone structure drew me to it right away and and decked out in my C88 (mostly) clothes, Dark Passions Koffin Nails, and 7 Deadly S{k}in, I had, even in the slightly darker mood I was in, a soppingly good time with this one. 

So this is me being me. Imperfect, making mistakes, showing my flaws. Because after a while, you get so tired of all those standards people hold you up to and just want to rest for a little while. No, I never claimed to be a saint. So I'm done trying to live up to the expectations of one...

♫You Make Me Wanna Die♫

Sometimes a song can tell the story a hundred ways we can't... So I'm relinquishing the writing for the mood of this one, taken at the lovely Follow Your Bliss sim and featuring 7 deadly S{k}ins, Mooh!, Evani, Catwa Bento, and SO much more), to The Pretty Reckless... Take it away Taylor:

♫Take me I'm alive
Never was a girl with a wicked mind
But everything looks better when the sun goes down♫

♫I had everything
Opportunities for eternity
And I could belong to the night♫

♫Your eyes, your eyes
I can see in your eyes
Your eyes..♫

♫You make me wanna die.... I'll never be good enough♫

♫And everything you love will burn up in the light
Every time I look inside your eyes
You make me wanna die...♫

This one was a ton of fun to shoot. The sim is fab, the clothes were adorable, my 7 Deadly S{k}in lovely as always... and even a melancholy mood can make for great art to present the items I'm wearing in this blog.
