A Short Post

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.

If I don’t get the chance to say it, Merry Christmas. If you don’t celebrate Christmas, Happy December 25th for no reason in particular.IMG_3482

How To Go Christmas Shopping

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.

(#2) Weeklies!

It’s late and I’m tired, so I’ll make this quick.

Books:

Maggie Stiefvater’s “Lament” ©2008

I’m only 57 pages in, but Stiefvater has yet to disappoint.

Movies:

Jiro Dreams of Sushi

A documentary about a dedicated sushi master. I saw it on the plane home and would definitely recommend.

Websites:

http://tradingvoyageur.com

It has some interesting articles on things like travel and street art..it also happens to be run by my cousin.

Blogs:

iamasexual.tumblr.com

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.

My Room: Starting From Scratch

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.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1

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.
