Happy indigenous peoples day!

I hope your day is great and just letting you know that today is indigenous peoples day!

Thats it, if your curious I’d do some research to find out who’s land your on if you live in the United States. For where I live its the Dakota and Ojibwe people.

I hope the rest of your day is great and I will see you all next time!

New apartment

Hi, it’s been a long time hasn’t it?

Sorry but I got through another year of college, but oh yes there are summer terms…. And I just moved into my new apartment, it was a week as of yesterday! (but as of writing this I’ve been settled in for 5 months)

The current space that I’m in is a one bed, and one bath. It’s pretty big considering all I have to gauge off of is living in dorms. I’ve had my own bed for the past 3 years now and shortly after this I will be writing about that so keep an eye out!

So it’s not aesthetic yet for fall but I am getting there, I’ve gotten a couple of things but I’m more excited about decorating it for winter! I still have to get a full length mirror so I can keep doing outfit blogs instead of finding random mirrors whenever I go out.

In all honesty, I enjoy my space, it’s nice to know I have a cozy corner room that’s all my own, I have a color pallet in here that compliments any color scheme I have going forward that can be rearranged and what not. It’s mainly pinks and grays which has always been my favorite color scheme because it’s both femme and semi professional.

And that’s really all I have for right now on this and how I feel, I hope you enjoyed this and are having a good, cozy time of day where ever you are right now. I will see you guys later!

Owning a Japanese Futon

As I said last week I have had my own bed for about three years now, and by the title it’s pretty self explanatory. I did a bunch of research on it for a little bit before I actually bit the bullet an bought this. I watched a bunch of videos on what your supposed to do to take care of it, how it’s made, how the cloth for the sheet is made. I also read up on what I can do as a young women living in the city where a balcony cost extra what else my options are. It’s a Japanese full size so it’s enough for me and one other person to sleep in comfortably that I got from J-life international. I also got a floor pillow as well which I use as throw pillows when I don’t have guest over who like to sit on the floor. I do not have tatami but I’m thinking about getting it in the future, maybe not this year but soon(ish). I did however order a wooden accordion style for under the bed but that won’t be here until October-November from japan. As for right now I have a friend who gave me some memory foam mats that she used for her old dorm back when I first got the bed but now she’s living at home. And my partner can tell a difference but I can’t so yeah there’s that…

Owning this futon was a struggle at first because of living in the dorm and not having enough window space for it to actually air out. Or there was also not having anything to prop it up on so i could actually get underneath. I bought a small bed vacuum that works wonders though, it helps get all the dead skin and moisture out of the bed. With owning this bed I have noticed my posture getting better or how my spine feels when I’m sitting in my chair, its very noticable in comparison to when I didn’t have this bed. It’s also pretty easy to fold up for me in the morning and it helps me get out of bed. I just fold it into an accordion and bam then I fold up my blankets then I have a lot more space in my one bedroom!

I wouldn’t say go out and buy one right now because I can’t force you too. I wont either, it should be your decision and this is only my experience. But if your on the fence about it do more reading on it like I did because it is an investment. Anyways I hope you have a great rest of your day and I will see you all next time!!

Rainy day update

So it rained all day here and I’d just thought this would be a pretty neat idea to keep doing. This time around I’ve been feeling better even though I just ate ramen noodles an drank a red bull. Without further ado here are the updates:

  1. I made confetti cupcakes the other day
  2. I cleaned out my closet again
  3. I got my summer housing all taken care of which is fantastic
  4. I was recently told it was strawberry season in Japan so that’s cool
  5. The snows basically gone here
  6. I got some new pleated skirts so can’t wait to wear an style them
  7. Just finished watching New Game which is a cute slice of life anime (Highly recommend it.)

That’s really all I got for right now, I’m just prepping for finals right now and trying to get stuff done for study abroad. As always I hope the rest of your day is great and I will see you guys next time!

Big sweaters

So by the title you should already know that I love huge sweaters. Preferably in the men’s section for two reasons, the first reason is that its a little bit cheaper to buy in the men’s section. The materials usually softer or thicker so you will be guaranteed warmth on cold nights. Plus for someone small like me if it’s big enough I can just pair it with tights, a long necklace and some chunky boots then Bang!  It looks like I gave all the fucks but really it took me ten minutes to get ready, another five if I wanted to put on makeup and maybe fifteen if I put my hair up in space buns.  Most of my sweaters I find in the men’ section at h&m or thrift stores if that helps. As always I hope the rest of your day is great and I will see you guys next time!

Darling just fuckin own it (#ootd)

So if you follow me on Instagram this is nothing new. But just for the sake of this outfit I have to share it on here as well. This will be scheduled a few days out so that’s why I’m putting it here. I got the shirt from nasty gal which I’m currently in love with, pants are vintage that I got at goodwill. Shoes are from Nordstrom and sunglasses were five dollars from Cotton On. Yesterday was a chill day I just went out to lunch by myself then worked out and went to class. Midterms are this week so wish me luck! As always I hope the rest of your day is great and I will see you guys next time.

Poems

I’ve been writing a lot more that usual. This is a good and bad thing, let me explain. If I write too much I dont have time to proofread. I just keep writing and writing but I never look it over and criticize my own writing.

It’s a good thing because I dont really have writer block. I just keep writing and I always have something to work on.

But some my work will never meet another set of eyes and is that okay? Totally. Recently in my creative writing class, yes I’ve been going to class again. Proud moment my dudes! There was a poet who came his name was Danez Smith. He has won a ton of awards and has a book that I will link at the bottom. It was amazing to hear him speak and answer some questions.

I asked him about his writing process. He said that he doesn’t know, he just made time for it whenever. That made me realize that I have the time to write like my blog and YouTube channel. (Btw I will post a video this coming tuesday I promise!) Now as the time comes down to choose work for my portfolio, I have no idea. My writing as of now ranges from depressing as ef, or kind of hopeful and inspiring. There are some that are inbetween but I’m not sure it would get the message across. I feel like this message could be very raw and deep. It could be but I still have no clue. I guess that’s the adventure in this.  Thank you for letting me rant about this and I will see you guys next Sunday!
