- Edible Christmas tree? Luxirare never fails to impress.
- Gift guides for the insomniac. Oh wow oh wow I want the Lucid Dreaming Mask!
- An Illustrated Book of Bad Arguments. Kids should be raised with this.
- People are biased against creative thinking, despite all of their insistence otherwise. Boo. Booooo.
- Why you should diversify your identity. Don’t define yourself by one thing (e.g. sex life, athletic career, etc).
- Mind blowing chemical reactions you won’t believe are real. You’d wish your parents are science teachers.
- Gay artist who defined the perfect American male. Beautiful beautiful sexy artworks and I haven’t even heard of him before!
- So how long does it REALLY take to form a habit?
- Dad colored in his kid’s artworks while away for work. A little creepy but awfully sweet.
- A creativity-boosting power napping technique used by Einstein, Aristotle, and Dali.
- I stopped paying attention to Thought Catalog but then they came out with this article.
I’ve made wishlists but they weren’t very serious because, to be honest, I’m not used to receiving gifts. I want a lot of things, sure, but I can live without any of them. In fact, I’m the queen of unwanting things (which has to change because ~ girrrl, you deserve nice, shiny things too ~).
Gary knows that about me too well, so he insisted I name a few things I’d like to have this time and I was like fine fine I’ll make a wishlist. Thinking of objects I really really want is such a chore lol. Are you sure? Are you sure? Here we go.
(e.g. gold, silver, titanium, etc) 18 gauge. Left nostril if there’s an option.
I was so YOLO about getting a nose stud that I didn’t do enough research about it. I even completely ignored the fact that I’m allergic to stainless steel earrings and went ahead let the piercer put in a nose stud (bone type, see image below) made of “surgical” stainless steel.
At least the ones from the top of my mind.
Let’s look at lesser-known artists we may have forgotten.
Lene Marlin – Unforgivable Sinner.
If the black-blonde streaks trend all look this good, I welcome its comeback.
Nobody reads the blogs of cynical, perverted girls past college age unless she talks about her sexcapades or are excellent writers or comedians. What kind of blog gets hits? Beach! Positivity! Fashion! Beauty!
What am I not?
- A beach lover. I can’t even swim. I don’t love the sun. I like it but the best thing about it would be the wind, nature, the view from the shades, and the company. I enjoy tagging along but I wouldn’t initiate a beach trip. I also like being pale.
- A positive human being. Count-your-blessings / things-I-like / the-happy-list posts are popular. I just don’t consider “hot chocolate at home with my favorite mug” to be a thing worth listing. It’s worth a try, I suppose, because I’m still working on having a better outlook in life. If I have a life.
- A fashion person. I only wear black and assembled “uniforms” where my recycling of pieces looks deliberate. I get away with wearing only two kinds of shoes. I’m also fond of minimalism. I don’t shop frequently or go for trendy pieces. My aim is to try to look shaggable but instead end up coming off as intimidating. What’s to OOTD from all-black recycled pieces anyway?
- A makeup person. I still don’t know how…
- An excellent writer. Poetic. Storyteller. Sentimental. Or one who’s good enough to write for a living (at least not yet).
- That funny. Yes I’ve been told I’m funny a couple of times but how can you NOT pull a (quiet) Steve Irwin when you see cartoonish persons standing next to plants? Yeah I’m just mean.
- Boycrazy. I’m that weird kid who never had a crush in school. Despite my open-mindedness when it comes to sex, the whole thing about love and boys has never been my concern. Living in a country particularly in love with love makes that lack of interest glaringly obvious. Currently, I’m very lucky to be in a great relationship with a romantic type who balances me out, but people would rather hear about drama. I’m also too good at obliviating anyone I used to like from my memory. So don’t expect posts about sexcapades, dating life, or open letters to whomever I miss (nobody).
Of course, I’m only justifying my blog’s lack frequency and original content lately. This blogging thing is only a hobby, down to the css, plus I thought it’d help me write better. Some attention is great, but like money, attention is only a means to an end. All’s ok but I just can’t help but wonder.
- Do you have a blog and feel the same way?
- Do male bloggers have unwritten expectations too?
- The Hiddles AND Tilda Swinton are vampires! MY INNER 14-YEAR-OLD IS SCREAMING.
I DID NOT SEE THIS ON MY TIMELINE EVER. WEIRD. I thought it’d be all over my feeds. Why, friends, why? Watching the trailer, I don’t know whether to cringe or laugh or squeal in excitement. It just looks so nostalgic, brooding vampires and all.
- 13 things mentally strong people don’t do (or think of). You’d be surprised how often we commit these mistakes.
- In defense of a fine arts degree, finally!
- Scientists found the Wolverine healing gene and all I can think of is how it must suck to have your hymen back.
- Cinismo Ilustrado - hilarious minimalist posters on cynicism!
- Motivational fitness quotes over images of alcoholism. BEAUTIFUL.
- And let’s end this list with cats! In tights!
- Loljk. Remember menswear dog? Here’s a little something about his very well-dressed (human) parents.
Here it is. I’m finally putting up my bucket list!
Note that it’s supposed to be different from a personal-standards list (e.g. wake up before the alarm goes off) unless you think it’s a miracle when you achieve it (e.g. wake up before the alarm goes off).
I also have an actual projects list that I prefer to mostly keep to myself. In the end it’s about breaking from the daily thing. My bucket list seems to involve what a really brave, able, and hot version of me would do, so it’s tied to both personal standards AND goals/projects. I mean, anybody can buy a spot in a package tour with their families to Europe. It’d be nice to be more specific, not to mention come back a little changed by an experience. Or feel cute (e.g. Hug a pumpkin).
Let me see yours! Comment below.

I love sending people links of cool finds. I also don’t want to lose any of them but hate fishing through my bookmarks and tend to forget them forever, so here it is! Interweb gems for you and for me.
- Glen Weisgerber, a hand-lettering wizard. Since I love looking at calligraphy and hand-lettering, I can’t help but watch this video over and over again.
- Zak Smith’s 67 Tips for Art Critics is good, relevant read particularly if you’re entering or already part of the gallery scene. “31. Sometimes students make the best art. Sometimes 17 year olds who can’t afford art school make the best art. Galleries won’t tell you this”
- Why do we hate seeing photos of ourselves? To be honest, I usually avoid most photos of myself, hahaha. Time to find out why.
- You’ve probably seen this but in case you haven’t, Heidi Klum dressed up as an old lady for Halloween! “Dressed up” does not do it justice. This shit is Hollywood fx! Check out her previous extravagant costumes. Every year I look forward to seeing what she’s come up with. My favorite is definitely the muscle suit!
- What is it like to date a Japanese guy? I know lots of you are into East Asian men, hohoho. The entry doesn’t cover ALL Japanese guys, of course, but generally speaking, it doesn’t sound like my thing…
- 31-year-old blonde bombshell gets a second chance at modeling…as a man. Dear gods that bone structure. She has that look that would’ve been the in-thing in the androgynous 80s. And can you say best husband ever?
- On making to-do lists: limit it to fit your post-i it note!
I’m supposed to do it earlier today (Monday). If you have suggestions of interesting stuff, comment below! :D
Hannah Chu gets tattooed!
I only had an old digicam with me that day sarreh.
Let’s get to the process and final look shall we? :D
