i am not going to let this blog die, goddammit!

it’s strange. i have all these various swirling ideas in my head that could turn into potential posts but i rarely follow through with them. whether it’s because i forget or because i lose the patience to fully flesh out the idea, i’m not sure. maybe both.

i think part of what’s been a struggle is that this blog doesn’t really have a defined purpose. i don’t know what i want the focus of this thing to be: fun pop. culture tidbits? kpop clips? campy trinkets? i have no idea. but while i think that aimlessness has contributed to lack of posting, i think the main culprit is just laziness/forgetfulness. i need to refine my focus and get back on this grind.

i’ve been thinking about doing a ‘fashion-y’ post each week. well more like, ‘hey look at this outfit i wore this week.’i’ve always been somewhat interested in fashion [by no means an expert though]. i find it interesting what people choose to put on their bodies. dressing/styling yourself is one of the most personal outlets for self-expression. everything you wear has some semblance of significance whether or not you want it to.

and then when you get into high fashion and haute couture and what have you, it’s a whole ‘nother world. fashion is art. i love fashion designers like alexander mcqueen [r.i.p.], john galliano, d-squared, betsey johnson, anna sui, etc. who create designs that have a tinge of blurred reality to them; everything kind of feels like a dream [or nightmare].

now i freely admit, i really don’t know all that much about fashion but it’s definitely something that intrigues me. it’s only within the last few years that i’ve begun to more clearly define what my style is [and had the funds to do so]. i still haven’t quite figured it out but i do know that it’s a little bit of streetwear mixed with preppy. i love my high tops and hoodies. And also love my button up shirts and classic crew-neck tees. I’m still exploring patterns and different textures but I do know that I like to insert a splash of bright color to all of my outfits, whether it’s through my shoes, accessories, whatever.

anyway, so yes. implementing a weekly [hopefully more often] ‘style’ post. we’ll see how that goes.

 

p.s. this post was really jumbled. i apologize. to make up for it, here is a song by a hip hop artist i’ve been bumpin’ too the last few weeks:

chyeeahhhh lyrics born. asam’s reppin’!

animals just do the darndest things!

been kinda mia lately….sorry peoples. i’m going to be better about this, i swear!

so p.a. had our mid-year retreat on thursday/friday and i was introduced to some rather…..fascinating youtube phenomenons that involved baby animals. the first of which being a baby monkey riding on the back of a baby pig [you read that right]:

i think what makes this so amazing is the song. because the notion of a friggin’ monkey riding on the back of a poor baby pig is already so ridiculous. compound that with this slightly screechy, simple song and it’s GOLD.

i was also shown the sneezing baby panda video:

and i mean, nothing too much actually happens in the video, per se. but just watch the mom panda. so great. her reaction is so ‘WTF WAS THAT? HOLY SWEET JESUS!’

and then ones i’ve known about before that i just have to post because well, why not – corgi bellyflop:

PRECIOUS. you only really need to watch the first 30 seconds or so. either way, how does this not make you smile? so cute.

and this one’s kinda old but i have to include it – KEYBOARD CAT!:

still makes me laugh after all this time. you can’y deny the talent of keyboard cat. s/he’s got some mad skillzzzz.

any of y’all got some viral video madness to add to the list?
