New Banner!

Whew! Not only did I update the banner for my Youtube channel...
New Youtube graphic

I also got to redo my banner for my blog too! 
Blog Banner design old
blog banner design new with flowers
The old one wasn't working for the new background I had. Too black and white and the size was just not ready too. For some minor changes, also changed some of the fonts too so its not too busy.
I feel like I should have thrown something fall-esque in there... like some pumpkins or leaves. Maybe I will pop something in there one of these days. hahaha 

So, I have been trying to find a second job or freelance these days. Having another month of no work is not really fun. I applied to a few retail shops and firms. I am trying to stay calm, but I feel like a tea kettle almost at boiling point. :/
Plus, my skills still need refining for normal life/career. *sigh* 

I feel super lost in this post college life. Some days feel really good and I get hopeful, some days seem bleak. I just want to wake up and have it be like a script... wake up from a play or something. lol 

I also don't really get Linkedin either. I was told several times I needed one, but it feels like another Facebook to me...just more boring! I know it is for work, but geez... (-__-;

Other updates... I have been working out and meditating off and on again. Sucks my diet is horrid at the moment. I miss my veggies! 

I have been doing more Youtube vids again! It feels kinda good. I am glad people are enjoying them! 

I am amped for the Alternative Fashion Walk hosted by myself and two of my ColumAlum, Brit and Krisi! I hope you stay tuned for pictures!

Urban Outfitters Strikes Again!


So, Urban Outfitters does it again. Trying to sell tasteless "vintage" shirts (or a shirt), this time with a painful touch from a recent past in American history. I think by now and all their other "mishaps" are done on purpose to garner attention from the public. "Look at me! I'm being unnecessarily edgey using shock tactics!"

This snippet was taken from the Business Insider page where I found the article:

 "It was never our intention to allude to the tragic events that took place at Kent State in 1970 and we are extremely saddened that this item was perceived as such," the company wrote in a statement. Urban says the red stains (definitely not blood) are from natural discoloration and the holes are from regular wear and tear. 

They claim the holes are from normal wear and tear... but this shirt is manufactured to look like that! And no one, LIKE NO ONE said, "Hey, this school suffered a tragedy way back when... maybe this is a lil tasteless?" A quick google search could clear up a thing or two ya'know! Maybe that is just their gimmick.

I think their meetings go like this:
Person 1:"Let's come out with something shitty over and over again to upset a different group of people."
Person 2:"...Then when people get too red in the face, just take it off the market! What do you guys think?"
Person 1: "Sounds like a plan! lulz"
Everyone else: "YAY!!11!!"
Person 1: "Sooo... What offensive thing should we produce next?"

I am expecting something new and tasteless to come out from Urban Outfitters before this time next year. Let's see if my prediction and psychic abilities prove me right!

Nascar + Sprint Event!

Before I went to my meeting with my Colum Alumni and former classmates on the 11th, I strolled from the Water Tower to the South Loop, snapping pictures and loving the grey weather. It was a bit chilly, and I knew it was fall already. Summer came and left too quickly! Oh well...

What's near the Chicago river?

As I was walking towards the South Loop where my school is, I noticed a giant screen right before you hit the Chicago River! Sprint Vision? Big screen? Huge crowd? What the hell was goin on?!
Sprint Vision?
Are they all going to the event too?! 
 I had to wander over here for a nice moment to see what was going on!

Toyota and Racecars?

Red M&M!

Even the Red M&M came out for the event too, ahahah!

Your Gyaru Racecar driver!
Let me be your driver!
 I had to...

Odd angle
Crop it like its odd!


Blue Racecar!

I don't think this particular racecar model was available to be sat in like the yellow one. Blue's one of my fave colours but oh well...

Painted Horse Sculpture.

Saw this painted horse dedicated to the police of Chicago.

I liked the metal gears on his butt, but no Solid Snake here!

Cute Birds!

Random, but these cute lil birds stopped by the event too!

Toyota sound booth!

I wanted to be in this booth so bad! Or on stage talking as one of the hosts so bad! Maybe one day....?

Eastern European guy I chatted with!
Eastern European guy who took my pic near the Chicago River.
 We chatted a bit before parting. 
When I was leaving the event after chatting with some fellas, (I actually got an age guestimation of 20 this time! I AM NO LONGER A HIGH SCHOOLER NOW! YIPPU) I got asked for my picture by this guy up here ^.  We chatted for a bit. He was here in Chicago til September for vacation. He seemed to like Chicago and might even come back! We parted near the edge of Millenium park where Cloud Gate sits.

For anyone attending the Nascar racing event, tell me how it was!! :D
