‘Journal Stuff’ Pouch

February 21, 2018     Like This Post!

Since starting my bullet journal, I’ve been all about buying stickers, markers, and washi tape. It got to the point where I didn’t know how to organize and I needed a pouch to hold them in. It’s easier to have one dedicated to my journal, so I set aside some time to get organized. I made a planner specifically for my “journal stuff”.

Top 10 Car Sing-Along Film Moments

February 19, 2018     Like This Post!

I was chilling oneday watching a movie, and I found an urge to create a list of movies featuring car sing-along moments. Having sing-alongs in cars is one of the best things, next to karaoke. Am I the only one who feels that way?

01. White Chicks [2004] – A Thousand Miles by Vanessa Carlton

This has become the ultimate white girl anthem, BUT, nothing can compare to Terry Crews singing along to this song.

Bullet Journal 2018

February 14, 2018     Like This Post!

Back in high school, I was obsessed with my agenda books. I decorated the covers, doodled all in the insides, and made note of everything I needed to keep track of. I was organized. College brought the opposite. I got lazy. Had no planner. Honestly I don’t remember how I kept track of things. Last year was the first year since high school that I bought a planner. But I couldn’t get into the swing of things and I rarely used it. Organization means a lot to me, but sometimes I really do find it hard to get into the swing of things.

Letter To My 13 Year Old Self

February 11, 2018     Like This Post!

Looking back on myself and the way that I grew up, I wish I could have the chance to hop on a time machine and tell myself some things to make my teens years a little easier and bearable. Especially since there’s been some instances recently in which I’ve conversed with some teens trying to give advice for how to have an easier time during those crazy hormone roller coaster years. I will always consider 13, and the years around that age to be my awkward years, but it doesn’t have to be awkward. And that why I wish I could tell my younger self to chill. I feel like I wouldn’t be so filled up with anxiety these days if 13 wasn’t so crappy.

So if I could go back, I’d say these things:

Illustration

New Beginnings

February 7, 2018     Like This Post!

Last year, I was on an illustration binge, seeking out indie zines to contribute artwork too. I support small and local, and I’m also try to get some work published even if I’m not getting paid. It’s a thing you have to sacrifice when you’re trying to build a client list. It’s especially easier when you have a full time job with an income, which is why I don’t mind doing art pro bono.

Nomad Mermaid — Upgrades

My original Nomad Mermaid Mobile was put together on a really tight budget and all of my materials came from The Dollar Tree by the apartment I was ditching in order to live in my car. The windows got blocked out with windshield solar screens I cut to fit, my sleeping pad was four inches of foam I’d sewn together, and this was what I had to cook on:

My tuna can spirit burner cost me a total of $3 and a near brush with death when the blade I was using to cut the vent notches slipped and sliced my wrist too close for comfort to a vein. I decided to set a smaller can inside a bigger one to create a wind shield and it did the job well enough to boil water in the camp pot I got from my grandfather.

Wardrobe Transformation

70’s Bag Pizzazz

January 23, 2018     Like This Post!

Over the summer of last year, my parents cleaned out my grandparent’s basement for slight renovation purposes. Their basement was full of all the knickknacks, sewing supplies, fabric, books, and tons of other flea market finds. I shared some pictures from the one day I went to help. Instead, I wasn’t too much of a help; I kinda took a lot of stuff because their fate was the trash. My dad did not hesitate to throw everything out, so I had to claim some stuff as mine to save them.
