I’m waiting to get back more photos before I blog about last weekend, and today I am SERIOUSLY needing to clean the house and start working on wardrobe for St Patrick’s Day LepreCon this weekend.
Physically I am exhausted after last weekends hustle and bustle and the DST change. Ill try to devote some time to Tumblr messages later on this evening.
Also, for anyone interested I DO have a twitter, but fair waring that I feel that I can be a bit annoying, sarcastic or ranty there (and occasionally talk about makeup…lol). Follow me at your own risk I am trying to use it more than 6 months a year haha. I’m @Onyxspider
Date last night with Glowbug. “Creature” themed party/rave with the Wunderlust Circus performers. Out till 4am.
Up this morning at 9am to pick up kiddo.
Now Glowbug, Minion and I are waiting for the Kumoricon Anime Convention general meeting to start so we can sign up as staff
Then this afternoon we are participating in a Make A Wish “Convention” for a little girl who’s wish was for a cosplay wardrobe. All three of us will be in costume again.
Enigma is SO SO bummed he is missing the make a wish gathering because he wanted to be Jack Frost SO BAD for the girl, but his word schedule got all messed up :(
Busy times. I’ll post more later. Meeting is about to start.
I received this product complementary from Influenster for testing and review purposes.
So in my Influenster J’Adore Vox Box that I recieved last month, I was given a sample of Boots Botanics Ionic Clay mask to try.
Today I decided to finally try it out *for some reason I am still kinda…
So feel free to read this if you want. It IS a product review, but Glowbug tested the facial mask with me so there are dorky pictures of us doing clay mask bonding. haha. :)
Yay! Thank you for the kind words and you are so welcome for the blog! I am always happy that others see value in the info I post and that I can provide a viability that the Poly community truly lacks. <3 *hugs*
*D’awe* HUGS!! Thank you very very much <3 I appreciate it <3 Having such supportive and wonderful people like you on Tumblr sure do help!! <3
We have used Enigma to baby sit from time to time and it does help a lot. However, Enigma is a supervisor at a coffee shop and his hours switch drastically every week. He also has some days he needs to be at work at 4am and we live all the way across town so it is not always an option.
Fantastic idea though and one we need to remember to ask about from time to time. Glowbug and I have a date this Saturday and I had called Enigma to see if he could be the “if all else fails” baby sitter (he has to work early on Sunday) and he totally agreed to help out if it came down to it. Luckily Glowbug found another sitter and Enigma wont be needed but this time, there was no way this date wasn’t going to happen! <3 Thank you so much for your insight *hugs*
Why Hello there Mr (Or Miss) Anon,
what nice glasses you have!
Your skin is looking a bit discolored though, hopefully the sun comes out soon and you can get some needed vitamin D!
Pleasure to meet you,
Spider *tee hee*
D’awe <3 It does hurt sometimes, I can be really emotional sometimes and having two partners can make it really hard sometimes. Thank you. I feel a lot better after long conversations and taking a ‘me’ adventure day yesterday *hugs*
Awe! Thank you so very much. I did JUST that! It did wonders for my mood.
It also helped me have better and more productive conversations with my partners.
*hugs hugs hugs*
Awe! That is great to hear! Perspective is such a good thing, and not always easy to grasp in these sorts of relationships until you experience them yourself.
Totally one reason I do feel that Poly/Mono (or more than two members) relationships have a harder time finding balance than Poly/Poly (or more than 2) relationships.
I am so very happy you guys seem to be doing well! Congrats and I wish you the best in your Poly adventures and life <3 *hugs*
I believe that every relationship is a choice. A monogamous relationship is a choice, a polyamorous relationship is a choice. We all make the decision to date others and to make relationships work so in that respect ‘being polyamorous’ in practice is totally a choice.
But, what I believe you are asking is not if the relationship is a choice but if the thought process is. *keep in mind these are my personal opinions* :)
I don’t view polyamory or monogamy in the same ways I view sexual orientation. I feel that for many (probably most even) sexual orientation is not a choice but just who they are. Are some people born gay? yes. Are some people born straight? yes. Are some people born Asexual? yes. Are some people born with out any preference at all? yes. Do some people change their mind over time and experience? yes. Orientation is a very personal type of attraction.
Now Monogamy and Polyamory are practices. You make the choice to practice anything. You can feel deep down that you are polyamorous but do I believe some people were “born poly?” I believe that some people are born with the capacity to be poly, with the limitless love needed to maintain multiple relationships. But I also think it is a choice to peruse that part of yourself.
Idk, I have a hard time feeling like we are a biologically monogamous species and I feel that Monogamy is an ideal that was put on us by our environment and respective religions. Monogamy is also a form of population control. I feel like if we were all born 100% mono then we would only ever fall in love once. Think that first true love around the time we hit puberty, that would be IT. If it didn’t work out, we would be solo the rest of our lives. Because I know I have experienced love for more than one person throughout my lifetime I don’t think I am a Monogamous species.
Have I Practiced Monogamy by choice? Yes! And there is nothing wrong with that!
But I have also practiced Polyamory by choice and I feel like it is a lifestyle that more accurately reflects the emotions in my current life.
With all sexuality and relationship lifestyles I think it is very personal to each person. I can speak for myself, but I could never accurately capture everyones thoughts on this subject and I hope I do not offend with my thoughts.
