Weather Confusion

Hey, hi, hello.

Fun fact: I love thrifting, cause I’m cheap but I love shopping. A particular Goodwill near me runs a $1 special on two tag colors every Sunday. All items – clothing, shoes, accessories, housewares and furniture – are included in the special, including something undeniably fabulous…

A GIANT WOOL COAT.

Naturally I decided to take photos in the 80-degree weather, but don’t worry, I found a way to make it more appropriate:

Right, did I mention this was ONE DOLLAR!?

No, what Kayne West said doesn’t become a “difference of opinion.”

 

Ok, no. I followed (yeah, past tense) this blogger. She recently made a list of unpopular opinions post, and obviously I clicked because that’s always interesting. The first prong on the list was about how Kayne West was one of her favorite rappers. I quickly commented about how he recently said that slavery was a choice. You can see that interview here. Then I went about my day, and came back to the biggest non-answer in history. Here it is:

A third person jumped in too, which made me kinda laugh. “We’re all human and we aren’t perfect,” is not an excuse for saying that slavery was a choice, and no, he didn’t mean it “mentally.” I recall another person who was “refreshing” for speaking their mind “without worry of the backlash.” Now he’s the first president with twitchy Twitter finger.

If you love it you’ll make time: four hours a day challenge

What’s up people? Knurly here, questioning my every move and thought. If you’re a self over-analyzer, you know what I mean. Anyway, something I’ve mentioned several times of this blog is an extreme desire to “do what I love.” And much of my blog has been that so far, however, I have ambitions outside of this platform that feel like they are slipping away from me. First and foremost, I want to seriously write my book. In all fairness (to myself) I have been working on my book but not as intensely as I hoped at the star of the year. It’s time to shift my gears and buckle down. After all, if this is really what I want to do with my life – I should be able to prioritize my work.

Therefore, I am enacting a challenge. For the next three weeks (roughly the time I have before starting my summer job – oh yeah, I got a summer job!) I want to utilize three hours each day to writing. At least two of the hours I spend writing should be focused on my book. Another hour has been set aside to practice drawing. I have a sketchpad labeled “Summer ’16” – meaning that I intended to fill that sucker up almost two years ago! I won’t let time slip away from me anymore.

It just boggles my mind how much I can get done when I set aside time. I always thought that I’d be some unstoppable machine if I was ever to utilize the time that I have to studying, practicing, whatever. Let’s see if I am right. I want to see how far this will take me. Plus, I hate losing, so I have a huge incentive to complete this challenge. The challenge starts today, April 16th (you maybe be seeing this post later than that, sorry) and ends the 7th – conveniently the week of finals. Wheeze!

I am publishing this post as a record of my intent. Please, you must publicly shame me into keeping my own promises. Nothing like a little public humiliation as motivation, am I right?

Anyway, in the meantime, please enjoy some of my other posts, there are many to come. (I have a queue right now that I can’t even keep up with!)

My Bloscar award: with a tone ranging from facetious to serious 

A post about how I fucked myself over when buying plane tickets 

An OOTD in which I pose like a supermodel on a playground

The googly eye mask 

A post in which I neurotically hunt down a pair of sold out shoes

And some dumb stuff I bought off eBay
