Rays of Sunshine

So, for those who were curious. I got the job that I previously applied for.  I’m really excited about this. But it also means that blogging has slowed down – you may have already noticed. The hiring process involves a lot of question answering, phone talking and person meeting. Basically, a lot of my time.

Something else happened, a close family member of mine passed away. So I haven’t really been feeling all that blog-ish – despite being gifted a tablet that  I didn’t deserve by a beautiful friend that I love to pieces. I have come to find that the grieving process goes in cycles. Sometimes I’m totally fine and I can work on my course work without a problem. Sometimes I just break down and cry. I was advised to keep busy while I process this, so I will force myself to do things that normally entertain me in an attempt to distract myself (exhibit A: blogging). But at the end of the day, and really at the start of it too, I am alone and a giant mess of feels.

This happening has really put a lot of things in perspective for me. I know I couldn’t have known it was going to happen, but when it did, I really took in the responses people gave me. Without trying to sound like a complete asshole, and I mean really I don’t give a fuck if I do, I know now who supports me and who doesn’t. Thanks for giving up on me, it made it easier for the both of us. Today I have realized that I don’t have any guilt left to give, just anger.

Going back to that previous comment, the one about blogging slowing down. I’ve been recently nominated by my peers for some awards. I am always honored when someone does this, but as of recently, I haven’t had a lot of time to respond to those posts. So this is my shout out, don’t let my lack of response make you feel ignored – I haven’t forgotten you – my head just isn’t fully in the game. Ya feel? I hope so. This message goes out to Teepee12, Annie, and Sheen Meem – you guys already know you’re cool, just bare with me on my slowness.

Anyway, to avoid this post becoming a giant hunk of lame, I’d like to throw fun things at your faces.

For one, my homeboy (people still say that, right?) CulturedLeftPeg AKA My Nurf Herder AKA North Wales King of Popty Ping, brought to my attention the coolest of news – Ben and Jerry’s ice cream announced they’re going to be making an Anchorman 2 themed flavor called “Scotchy Scotch Scotch.” I’ve never been happier, I swear.  Here’s what it looks like:

All of my dreams. They are coming true.

Also here’s a little kid running around in a light Halloween costume. I like it. It makes me “aaaaaaaaw”

Also, my Canadian friend sent me a super boss song, I wanted to share it with you all. I’ve listened to it a couple million times already…lol

Sorry this post sucks, here’s a pikachu eating a burger.

I MADE A VIDEO

I made a video about the coolness of my tablet! 

It’s really short but I wanted to show you guys why I love it so much – it makes MS Paint drawings faster and the new programs that I plan on using for future doodles are so amazing! (Namely ArtRage) <3

Sorry for sounding like a super giddy little boy, I just haven’t been able to put this tablet down for the past two days.

I NEED PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND WHY I LOVE IT SO MUCH. 

Yaaaay, a new post featuring drawings from the new programs will happen tomorrow. I’M SO EXCITED!!!!!

Here is a slightly more detailed speed doodle:

15% of Adults are offline, bunch of hipsters

A new estimate reports that 15% of Americans, ages 18 and older, are “offline.” As in, no internets.

According to an article on Pew Internet, there are several reasons why these adults choose not to use the internet. There’s a whole list of reasons, ranging from not having a computer at all, to thinking its a waste of time. But the biggest reason that people don’t use the internet, “Just Not Interested.”

Dang. Shot down like a bad date.

But, the thing that I really didn’t understand was the statistic: 14% of these adults had used the internet (at least once) and decided to stop.

This got me thinking. What kind of circumstances would have to happen for me to never use the internet again? 

Scenario 1: If I lost access to the internet.

Let’s say that I could no longer afford to pay for the internet, or my computer exploded, or both. I still foresee myself going to the local library or my university library and hogging a computer for as many hours as  I need. So, nope, I still use the internet in this case.

Scenario 2If I were stranded on a deserted island.

I’d be fucked. I have completely forgotten all the survival skills I learned in the Girl Scouts. Wait, did we learn those? Yeah, I’m super fucked. So, this would probably be the only scenario – that I can come up with – where I would be forced to stop using the internet.

But, if I survived, you know what I’d want to do when I came back in contact with civilization? Blog about it.

Scenario 3: If I died. 

Yes, being dead stops me from using a lot of things.

The problem with all 3 of these scenarios is that I can’t control them. Maybe I can try to work more to save money to buy a new computer or resume payments to my internet provider. But all of these situations were against my will. I can’t see myself willingly giving up the internet.

On a global scale, there’s a crazy number of people who don’t even have access to the internet. But if they were introduced to it, I wonder how many would chose to stop. Would it still be 14%?

I mean, I’m old enough to remember what it was like growing up without the internet. I still had fun. I may not be a fan of social media, but I mean, I have to admit I was excited to create my first email account. Even with youtube and Netflix feeding me all sorts of entertainment, I know it wouldn’t be impossible for me to go back to exclusively reading books/graphic novels/comics. I could do it. I just…choose the internet.

So, my friends, now I am curious…What kind of circumstances would have to happen for YOU to never use the internet again?

You thought you knew how to tie shoes, but you’re living a lie.

So, upon returning to my humble abode, because Barnes and Noble’s Cafe was jam packed full of fucking a million people (all of whom had lap tops and were hogging the outlets) I received an email from my Argentinian Lover: Naty Cakes. I’m going to make a cartoon of her very soon.

It seems that she has discovered a TEDTalk that I have not yet seen. Even more so, this particular TEDTalk, led by Terry Moore, has completely punched my childhood directly in the face and proven that I have been living a lie.

I thought I knew how to tie my shoe laces, but  I was so damn wrong…

WHY WOULD ANYONE TEACH PEOPLE A WEAK KNOT ? SERIOUSLY??? All those times I tripped because my shoe laces were untied, they could have all been avoided!!! O GOD WHY.

Terry Moore is the director of the New York based Radius Foundation, which seeks “to create better understanding of traditional, classical, and modern worldviews.” It’s got some interesting stuff on their site if you have a few minutes to snoop around on it.

Anyway, now you know how to tie your shoes the sturdy way. You’re welcome.

This Motorola commercial made me laugh lol, I love TJ Miller! The first time I remember seeing him was in Cloverfield (aka, the movie everyone makes fun of me for enjoying). I recently watched My Idiot Brother (available on Netflix, so, shout out for those who are curious and want to watch it) which was an EXCELLENT movie :3 Anyway, Paul Rudd and TJ Miller have some cute chemistry in that movie.

My brother linked me some of TJ Miller’s stand up, so here I am passing it along to all you beautiful sunflowers:

Anyway, I have some online homework to do… this is the kind of exciting life that I live. Try not to be jealous.

LEEK ‘N BROCCOLI SOUP

While staying with my Argentinian lover (Natty Cakes) I was introduced to possibly the most tasty soup I have ever had, a leek and broccoli soup. It was hand crafted with strategic cooking magic that only a Korean-Argentinian could possibly create.

Since I lack these magical skills, but I’ve been on a health binge, I wanted to recreate this deliciousness. So I did what I do best, fucked around on youtube. Eventually I happened upon Nicko’s Kitchen, an amazingly delicious looking channel that only made me insanely hungry(er). It just so happens that Nicko did a video just for leek and broccoli, cause secretly he knew I was craving that shit, I know you got my back bro. Thanks Nicko.

See how easy that was? I was all full of self-confidence after watching that. Like, seriously, all I have to do is boil some green shit, blend it, and pour that delicious vegetable liquor into my face hole? WHY AM I NOT DOING THAT RIGHT THIS VERY SECOND?

:3 And so I did. I went out and got an organic leek and organic head of broccoli (mad cause I bought organic? yeah, you’re mad) and chopped it up.

But after pouring some water into the pot, I looked at how lonely the leek and broccoli seemed. So I decided to open the fridge and throw some more in. Specifically, mushrooms.

But, you know what I love even more than mushrooms? Onions. So I added that shit too.

So now I’m looking at this Leek n Broccoli n Mushroom n Onion mountain & I’m excited to stuff it all into le pot.

However, a quick observation reveals that the chopped up mixed no longer fits in the original pot that I selected to cook in… So I transfer my concoction to a larger pot, now I’m ready to rock n’ roll!

Aaaaand this is what it looked like, before the boil.

After my veggie water mix was done I poured it all into the blender, but of course, I started thinking creatively. WHY NOT ADD MORE? CAUSE MORE! So I poured in a bit of veggie broth.  THEN I BLENDED :3 AND IT LOOKS LIKE THIS:

So now I am pouring the finished result into a bowl to stuff my face.

I added a lot of pepper and a lil bit of salt. I have to say, I am excited to put the Leek & Broccoli Soup Badge of Adulthood on my Life Scout sash. Its not quite as good as my friend’s mom’s recipe – but the fact that I made this and I didn’t feel the need to vomit is an amazing achievement. I’m patting myself on the back.

Study Session/Music Session

Ey grl, “show me where you fit” as James Blake would say. I have been playing Retrograde on repeat for several hours. :3 I do this basically any time I hear the song even just once. It’s so good.  You should indulge yourself!

“You’re on your own
In a world you’ve grown
Few years to go,
Don’t let the hurdle fall
So be the girl you loved,
Be the girl you loved”

I think I will post more music. On an unrelated side note, I want to be an astronaut for Halloween.

Le Gobelins

So I stumbled upon this site: http://www.gobelins.fr

It’s in French, but what I investigated its some kind of school of arts in France. Their youtube channel is very entertaining.  I wanted to share one of the student works in particular, “In Between”:

But there are several student works worth watching, so go exploring! I liked one of the more recent posts entitled “Myosis”:

I ordered a few books off of amazon and they are here. I am so excited to read them. At some point I should do some cleaning up in my room. Introduction to Critical Care Nursing is interesting so far, I’ll post some things I’m jotting down in a later post. I also need to go grocery shopping…but its Labor day, so I also feel like going to Barnes and Noble and using a coupon to get something tasty to eat or drink or read. Decisions, decisions. Mad cause I’m drinking Jasmine tea? Yeah, yer mad.

Before I go, Super Mario Parkour!!!
