Ah, shit. I’m really bad at this updating thing. But, in my defense, it’s been pretty hectic since I last wrote something. I’m in my last few days in the northern part of CA before jetting off to school again (which, in all honesty, I’m am very much excited for). But, holy guacamole. 14 days have passed?! That’s an entire novel right there that I could have written! In internet land… that’s, like, CENTURIES!
But, hey – a novel I will write now in attempts to catch up! I guess, after this post, there will be only two more posts until I’ve “finished” this challenge. Finished, being used, as a very loose term.
Post is kinda picture heavy. You’ve been forewarned (although your browser has probably already loaded them all by now, just thought I’d be courteous)
Day 15: Your zodiac/horoscope and if you think it fits you
I’m a Scorpio, for all of your horoscope lovin’ web-netter’s out there that can garner a person’s personality from how/what they write about. And this is what my zodiac says about me (just bullets… if I had copied and pasted everything it would have been too long to post).
Taken verbatim from Zodiac Signs Astrology.
Scorpio Astrology October 23 – November 21
- series of extremes, they can even be downright moody for no apparent reason
- excellent memory and combined with an inability to let things go
- persistent and determined
- Scorpios are fierce competitors, combined with their powers of observation and their excellent memory, they will recall facts and when necessary, bring them to the table at the time of need
- all about intensity and contradictions
- Scorpios are all about control, they need to be in control at all times. To be out of control is very threatening, even dangerous to the Scorpio’s psyche, when they control, they feel safe.
16: Something you always think “what if” about
- the world was color blind?
- humans weren’t at the top of the food chain?
- fairy tales were real?
- I had a Big Mac right now? Would my stomach reek revenge on me?! (I’ve been a vegetarian for about 5 years now…)
- I had to live my life on repeat (but not a day, specifically. Let’s say, a week or a month. Just to be interesting.)
17: Something you are proud of
Making my own planner/notebook/journal. No, seriously. It’s friggin’ baller, and will get it’s own post very soon
Pardon that it’s a bit yellow – there’s little lighting where I am right now.
18: A problem that you have had
Forgetting things. “It’s in my horoscopic nature” you may say. If you do one thing to extremely irk me off, you betcha that 50 years down the road I’m still going to be peeved. But, thankfully, I do forgive easily, especially if you bake me a chocolate cake. Just don’t serve it with arsenic & dolly it up with old lace.
19: Five items that you lust for
Nexus 7 (but getting it soon!) This is pretty much my first Anti-Apple large-statement purchase… Yes, I realize that leaving the Apple sphere to join into the Droid cult is essentially the same move (ie. joining another following), but with the string of recent Apple moves lately, I’ve been thinking that they’ve become a little bit too bit for my liking (pretty sure this statement is going to bite me in the ass sometime down the road).
- Boba! Because you can never have enough…. a delicious, chewy, aromatic concoction served with a side of diabetes.
- A (nice looking) (sturdy) (will look better after aging) leather messenger bag. Oh! Like this one
Because nothing is better than quality meeting functionality & aesthetics
Um, that’s pretty much it. I haven’t really lusted for anything all summer due to the fact that I’m trying to be as content as possible with everything that I currently own/have no business in purchasing/should really detach myself from worldly processions. I’ll probably get these items (erm, the boba and messenger bag, that is) eventually, but at the expense of tossing/donating something else.
Oh – did I mention? I threw out an entire box (about 30 articles of clothing) last week. No picture though, sadly, as I was in this frenzy of “need to get it out of my sight and into the hands of Goodwill extra-extra-extra quick before I regret something” From start to finish (including unloading the car at Goodwill, I probably de cluttered in 15 mins. Now, that’s what I call productivity!
20: Your fears
I guess I’ll put the most practical: graduating with a B.Arch degree realizing that I learned little, and can’t find a job in a related field. Oh, and not getting into a Master’s program and excelling.
And, (this is on my over arching bucket list) not traveling to Japan. That would make me so utterly devastated
21: how you hope you’re future is like
I hope it’s filled with rainbows, stars, and pixie dust.
But, no, seriously, I just hope I’m happy and get to do what I want instead of feeling obligated to follow the every whim of the people around me.
22: Your academics
I’m studying Architecture… so I’m not sure exactly what this prompt is looking for?
23: Something that you miss
Fried chicken from Popeye’s. I grew up with it in Texas and it was such a delight to eat. But since giving up meat, I still crave it in my dreams sometimes…
I hope you don’t think I’m kidding – yes, I could start eating meat again, but 1) it would totally wreck my system for the longest time, and having hives isn’t my idea of fun and 2) the only meat i would eat would be fried chicken.
So, pretty much, I’m better off with my faux Morning Start chikn ‘nuggets with lots of BBQ doused on top, practically til it becomes BBQ soup with chik’n nugget croutons on top.
24: 5 words/phrases that make you laugh
its actually is really easy to make me laugh…. i’m not sure if i have easy button words/phrases. But, when I do find out/realize that they are making my laugh manically, I’ll have to change the answer to this prompt. But for right now? I’ll just say boobies.
25: Something you’re currently worrying about
If I’ll actually be able to stick to my monetary budget for the next year.
26: Things you dis/like about yourself.
I love myself! What’s wrong with you?
Ha, I’m pretty sure the creator of this challenge was female, because body image/perception seems (more commonly) a female issue.
But, if i could pinpoint one thing that I disliked about myself, physically, would be that I wish both my eye lids had the american fold just because trying to eye line one “American” eye versus the “Asian” eye so that they appear even when my eyes open makes me waste so.much.eyeliner!
And one thing that I love about myself? I bake really, really well. Like, good enough to sell! I’ve actually sold around $400 in baked goods (donated after I payed myself for supplies), as well as was payed $200 to cater. Not bad for my self-taught-baker high school self!
27: A quote you try to live by
Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time. – Specific author not known (it’s been attributed to several different people)
28: somewhere you’d liked to move or to visit.
On my bucket list (which, until recently, has not changed in about 8 years) is to travel to Japan, Alaska, and Russia (just St. Petersburg).But, I’ve swapped out Russia for Switzerland, as my love of chocolate has grown exponentially.
WHEW! I FINISHED! Count it, 14 prompts done!
Now, if only I can make it and not get lazy on the last two…
