Social Butterfly – who were you?

Per Urban Dictionary:

Social Butterfly

Someone who is VERY social and easygoing; can be either a male or a female. Usually, these people don’t belong to a particular group, but rather jump from one group to another. They are somewhat accepted in all of them but don’t really have any deep friendship connections in any of them.

dievca was a Social Butterfly in High School (HS). she missed a lot of school due to training/competing, so her socializing was sporadic. she made herself agreeable wherever and whenever she could. (No lunch, no study hall, no gym and perhaps some classes are missing – Driver’s Ed, Consumer Ed, etc.) she touched down lightly for a short time with whatever group was at hand and open to her company.

People mix-up her ability to socialize with popularity.

When she goes back to her HS Reunions, she remembers her Elementary School friends much better than HS people. That extra 8 years of Catholic School leaves an imprint. In turn, High School mates remember her…that is a bit of a scary thought.

The Geeks in her Science classes knew her best and she is always happy to see them.
Her close friendships were childhood friends and sports training friends. They stuck.

Apparently Master was “Popular” in High School.
Hah!
Something dievca did not know.
He never talks about childhood friends.

Master mumbled something about owning a car, dating more than His nerdy friends, people not knowing His background and them thinking that He was very self-assured, confident, smart and funny.

Not a lot of details offered, but it sounds like Master had a good time at his High School Reunion.

Hurrah!

Who were you in High School or Gymnasium?

Good Morning!

 


Hmm – don’t think this qualifies

as Ladylike…
But they are rockin‘ in a BDSM fashion!


Ladylike

graceful, polite, and behaving in a way that is thought to be socially acceptable for a woman:.

In dress, it is controlled, elegant, classic and conservative:

Master’s favorite look.

dievca has gotten away from it. The process takes time and patience. A consistency of body-size.

Worrying about elderly parents, travel, aging takes its toll. A general tendency towards quirky and downtown chic pulls dievca when given a choice to spend money on clothing…
Master does like to see His dievca in her downtown chic plumage, but D/s-wise He prefers “ladylike”.

Why does this matter?

dievca has been clearing and revamping her closet – she’s sold a great deal on the RealReal, eBay and at Buffalo Exchange. Her money has not gone towards any ladylike items…

she’s gone more practical, focusing on items that she desired during the past year, which went on sale:

she will have to ask Master how He feels about her negligence of ladylike dressing. He is entertained by her eclectic closet and He knows her focus has been on Family/Life items.

The luxury of being “Ladylike” will just have to wait until dievca can refocus.


Something of use – luggage: Roller vs. Spinner

dievca’s bag fell apart on her way to Europe.  The zipper pull came off and dievca was worried that it would start to unzip as her trip continued via walking, subway, plane, train, car – etc.

So, she had the bag wrapped at the airport and prayed that security wouldn’t see the need to unwrap it.

When she was in Sweden, she ran out to the local luggage/bag shop in a small town and found one rolling duffle-esque bag.

Everything else was the “spinner” suitcases.
dievca stuck with what she knew and bought the roller bag.

she was super happy with the choice when she saw how much trouble people were having with their spinner bags on the cobbled streets and hills in Lisbon, Portugal.

That said, she tried a cheap spinner when traveling to her parent’s house in the Midwest. No cobbled hills, flat surfaces, elevators, and a rental car.

Using a spinner was very easy.

Which One Should You Buy?
Getting a spinner or a roller depends largely on where and how you travel.

Spinners often weigh a bit more and the wheels stick out and are counted in the luggage measurement, so you lose precious space. Also, the more moving pieces, the more opportunities for something to go wrong.

Rollers put pressure on your joints and wrists. You’ll have a tendency to trip people behind you while walking and you can only roll in one direction. Measurement-wise the wheels are inset and do not take as much room.

If you’re an easy-going traveler, or you’re the type who often goes on business trips, spinners will be great. You can walk through miles of airport halls or office buildings without much trouble as most of the weight is taken off your burden. For as long as you will be traveling on predictable terrain, spinners will be your best bet.

Rollers are great for people who travel to many different places. Rollers are more likely to survive a rugged trip. It can survive many terrains and will be easier to pull through city sidewalks, on gravel, across train platforms, onto buses, or even onto ferries.​

dievca finds herself keeping two pieces of luggage for the different types of travel she experiences.  The good news is her spinner fits into her rolling duffle for storage.
