Blue day

One of my main mottos in life has always been: when you’re not comfortable with the situation you are in you either solve it, accept it and stop whinning or leave.

I never felt comfortable with people playing almighty god and behaving with no respect whatsoever for the others – particularly when they demand from those around them to behave according to the highest standards.

I never felt comfortable with people abusing on others just because they can. I find this despisable, specially when those others provide a service that is of the utmost importance for the “almighty’s” business.

Therefore… for as much as I enjoy working at Sweethearts; for as much as I love the team and have attached myself dearly to many of the hostesses there; for as much as I appreciated the good money I was doing there – I am quitting today.

Yay – I had enough of asshole bosses. Tried them before in FL and didn’t like them, so I’m not for sure having one in SL. :D. This does makes me feeling blue, and I will need some time to forgive the asshole for having ruined my fun… but I’ll get over it with time. Too bad that such a nice place is owned by such a spoiled kid…

There I was, frenetically waving and welcoming everyone during my hosting shift at Sweethearts (any hints on how to welcome people who constantly come in without sounding like a parrot are welcome, lol) when I received this e-mail from Rickardo Congrejo, boyfriend to Majella Maynard, one of our Co-Managers.

He was asking me if I was still hosting, which obviously rose my curiosity. Then he starts telling me he had planned to proposed to Majella right there at Sweethearts, and asked me to help him with some special measures. As he laid down the proposal pose balls, I requested our guests to keep quiet for a little bit… and then he tped her.

It is hard to explain the beauty of the moment, and the picture below doesn’t translate at all the magical feeling that overwhelmed all who stood there. You see, Sweethearts is the kind of place with a constant trafic of at least 50 avatars. I leave it to your imagination how it is to be among a crowd as such… and listening only to the soft background music. I could almost feel all the others holding their breath as they listened to Rickardo’s sweet sweet speech – and Majella’s excited positive reply.


It took her ages to put her engagement ring on! I can only imagine how was she feeling at that time… on my side, it was impossible to prevent some stubborn tears to fall from my eyes.

And then the crowd bursted applauding and cheering them both… as if suddenly waking up from some dream – and I found myself laughing out loud at my laptop.

Rickardo was kind enough to invite Petros to be his bestman. Aw, I can hardly wait for the wedding to come and already started imagining what will we both be wearing – Styles of Edu, here we come, hehehehe!

The same hapiness and positive energy I felt there then, woke up with me today, and I still smile and hear my heart sing as I write these lines. You see… sometimes it takes this few to make you feel in peace – and couples in love have this ability to throw upon everyone around this special cloak waved of smiles and songs…
