Awesome movie. Awesome, awesome, awesome movie.
I was going to write what was supposed to be my first Arts+Crafts post, but I’ve never painted a mug before today and I kind of messed up. You’ll have to settle for a picture of a dollar-store mug I drew on with a multi-surface paint pen. It was much easier than painting with acrylics. It looks good with my mini pink Christmas tree, doesn’t it? Nice contrast. Anyway, that’s it for this post. It’s actually forty-seven minutes past midnight so I guess that makes this post officially late. I apologize. Since tomorrow is Christmas Eve and the day after is Christmas, I might be too busy to post. If I have the time, then I’ll definitely put something up, but I’m telling you just in case. Hopefully, you’ll be too busy to notice if I do or not.
Don’t. Just stay home and drink hot chocolate happily knowing you ordered everything online a month ago. Otherwise you’ll end up with less than a week until Christmas and less than half your list checked off, like me. And you’ll be cursing your own stupidity as you navigate a crowded mall and wait in crazy mile-long lines because this could all have been avoided.
It’s late and I’m tired, so I’ll make this quick.

I’m only 57 pages in, but Stiefvater has yet to disappoint.
Jiro Dreams of Sushi
A documentary about a dedicated sushi master. I saw it on the plane home and would definitely recommend.
It has some interesting articles on things like travel and street art..it also happens to be run by my cousin.
I’ve submitted to them before and they’ve promoted my “I Have A Superpower” article, so yeah. They’re pretty cool.
Salmon, avocado, and a poached egg in a paper cup.
I chose it at random for breakfast at Heathrow before my flight and was pleasantly surprised by how good it was despite seeming like an odd mix.
I’ll have something more substantial tomorrow. Promise.
You may have figured it out already: Thursdays are about Interior Decorating.
My room happens to be the smallest bedroom in the house, but I chose it because it gets the most sun and the other two rooms had weird mint-coloured walls whereas mine are a light grey. The plan is pretty simple: A door, a window, and a closet.
Wednesdays I will write about things like TV shows, films, books, websites, YouTube channels, or anything else I happen to be into on any given week. I happened to see The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 in theatres today.
As I outlined Sunday, I did a lot of traveling yesterday. From one bed to another, it took 29 hours. By the time I reached my bed here in Calgary, it was about 3 in the morning, which is why I did not post yesterday.
Sundays are ‘Anything Goes’ days. If I’ve got something to write, I will. If I need a break, I’ll take it. If I just want to post a bunch of pictures or a YouTube video, I will. Today, I will write a good old-fashioned post.
Saturdays are story days! I will post short stories, poems, or anything else that I’ve written in the week. Unfortunately, all I’ve really written this past week are my assignments and some of Book3, so I’ll just write something on the spot.
There’s people watching, and then there’s accidental people watching. I’ve done both. People watching is when you’re sitting somewhere like a park or a shopping mall and you watch all the people around, what they do, what they say, and how they act. Accidental people watching is what I did around two years ago.
