The Mysteries of Adult Gift-Giving

The Mysteries of Adult Gift-Giving

Why do people think that when you grow older or become an adult, the only things you need for the holidays/Christmas are a set of porcelain serving bowls, and you’re set? But it’s not even that…it’s that EVERYONE feels the need to gift you with MULTIPLE sets of serving bowls, crystal cracker trays (seriously, why are there specialized trays for CRACKERS? Why not just provide specialized trays for, I don’t know, paper towels, for all the good it does you T.T), dipping sets (What’s wrong with just putting dip in a regular bowl and dipping the crackers in that, like past generations have always done? Exactly what aspect of the whole experience changes by suddenly using a dipping bowl? Are the aerodynamics different? the taste experience? The mystery persists…), and of course, the good ol’ ornaments-that-contain-a-mystery-substance that may or may not contain lotion, soap, potions, soup, shampoo, or quite possibly, a combination of all of them o.O

Anyways, as the holidays continue to get closer, I’m intrigued by what else our family friends think that we’re in dire need of for the holidaaaaays.


Old favorite Movie?

Old favorite Movie?

I know this movie came out last year, but woaaaaaah, I’ve only just rediscovered the brilliance of this movie over the past few days…in fact, I may or may not have watched it 4 times over the past 2 days XD I CAN’T HELP IT…A freshman in college remakes her acapella group, the Barden Bellas, into crowd-stopping musical marvel. Get ready to be pitch-slapped.



So, this Saturday was the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special…undeniably the most awaited moment in MONTHS for all Whovians…now, i’m not one of those people who goes around advocating for people to watch certain shows, ’cause I find those people REALLY annoying. Every person has their own taste, and I do not appreciate my peers trying to shove theirs in my face…I’ll discover it in my own time, if I decide to at all, that is…

But for once, I have to make a suggestion…Doctor Who is truly an intriguing idea and plotline…I mean, a Timelord who travels all across time and space, delving into adventures and always managing to rescue entire worlds in the end? It truly is the things that dreams are made of. There’s no way to describe what it would be like to experience anadventure with the Doctor, to be whisked off across galaxies at a moment’s notice to respond to an ally’s cry for help or to fight a battle against the Daleks.

But, this 50th anniversary episode was…beautiful. There are no words to describe how wonderfully 3 plotlines were woven together to create a mournful tribute to the Doctor’s fallen home planet. And no emotions to describe the Bad Wolf’s attempts to make 3 Doctors realize the folly of their ways ❤

"When you’re a kid, they tell you it’s all… Grow up, get a job, get married, get a house, have a kid, and that’s it. But the truth is, the world is so much stranger than that. It’s so much darker. And so much madder. And so much better.”



Saying I love the Olympics would be the biggest understatement ever…I LIVE for the Olympics, especially the Winter ones…you will never meet a bigger fan of the Games anywhere around XD

There’s something incredible about living out your wildest dreams and aspirations through your favorite athletes and risk-takers. Records were meant to be broken, and you can be sure that S%$#’s going to go down this winter… #GETREADY #SHAUNWHITEFEVER

So. Many. Feels

So. Many. Feels

Sometimes, I wonder if anyone actually notices the people they pass by and interact with each day. As in, REALLY notice them, paying attention to all the subtle things that they hope will stay hidden…

Sometimes, I’m glad that the majority of the world isn’t like that, ’cause it makes it easier to conceal the pain within.
