Dreamery of Greenery

As you may know, the Pantone color of the year for 2017 was Greenery. As you may recall, I have a bit of a tradition of bucking the color of the year. This year, however, I kind of rolled with it. What can I say? I love green, and yellow-green is right up my alley.

Green and Easy

I’ve always been eclectic in the range of interior design trends I like, but I’ve always been up for a good modern piece. Sometimes they can look a little stark and unfortunate however. I find the best solution for that problem is to incorporate growing stuff in your home. The easiest solution is just to

Something To Ponder

I feel like humor is, as in the past, being used in this modern world to share major societal problems and concerns in a non-confrontational way. I mean, nobody really listens when the crazed right wing/left wing starts yelling at them that the government should be done their way and everyone else is stupid. When

Color Of The Weird

The Anti Color Of The Year Pantone’s color of the year is Radiant Orchid. Not normal orchid, mind you. Radiant. So it slipped into a vat of nuclear waste and, when angry, it pulses out blindingly radiant light waves, or it turns evil with its anger and becomes the stinky corpse flower of doom. Yeah,

Today’s Playlist

Lately I’ve had a few songs stuck in my head. And I figure, if these songs are driving me crazy, they might as well drive you crazy too. But let me clarify: they are really good songs. They are driving me crazy because they are good, and I like them, and I occasionally have a

In The Night

I thought I’d do a sequel to an earlier post, Night Lights. My experiment with distorted night views proved oddly popular, so I thought I’d bring some more out of my archives 🙂 I thought this had some of the energy and fun of a highway at night. Intersections can be chaotic, but I’ve always

Night Lights

I thought you might like these photos. I took them at night, without adding any stabilizing. This is what the world looks like to me when I take off my glasses. This one looks like a congress of old men, doesn’t it? All lined up and sitting in their chairs. It’s all out of focus,

Living Efficiently

With a combined interest in cutting our carbon footprint and cutting our costs, many urbanites and young adults are turning to micro apartments. This allows you to live in a high cost region, like a college dorm or the middle of downtown, without costing nearly as much as a regular apartment, and might be just

How To Be A Good Diner

I was scrolling through various sites in one of the great mysteries of the world; that it, how a person can start out innocently looking at a single funny video on Youtube, and end up with bloodshot eyes 5,000 blogs, memes, and tumblrs later. Regardless, I found this blog, Break Room Stories, a sort of

Quick Stress Relievers

I`m not sure if you are aware, but finals are very stressful for me! It just gets overwhelming sometimes, and I can`t stand that tightening in my stomach and whirring in my ears. Somehow I have to distance myself from it all. So, through years of having fits of neurotic overstress periods, I have developed

Your Health: The Whole Picture

I see a lot of people have been getting serious about their health. They eat organic food, shop at the farmer`s market, plant back yard gardens for beauty and produce, and use more nontoxic cleaners and paints in their homes. However, they don`t really have the whole picture. If you have been looking for a

A Sporty Outfit that Beats The Heat

My Basic Sports Outfit So, if you are a new badminton player, (like me) you need to get your outfit pulled together! Here is the latest (and most fashionable) combination for sports in general. Well, if you are a girl. I know I always feel a little funky with how casual and bland sports clothes

Geek Style

Two months ago I did a research visit (Yeah, research. suuure, Z!) at Katsucon. Among many amazing things I hadn`t seen in general, I also saw many elements of style I don`t run into when I flip through my Vogue or fashion blogs. Which is actually pretty surprising, considering that you`d think the first place

Send Me Out An S.O.S.

A Lady in Need Can`t always Ask Her Knight for Help… Sometimes, emergencies happen. And I`m not talking about a heart attack or flood, here. I`m talking about serious stuff that your local EMT couldn`t care less about. (Unless on her off hours she is a fashionably shod lady. Which plenty of EMTs are, promise!)
