Feeling safe back at the roots with Michelle Phan October 17, 2010

I was flipping through some of Michelle Phan’s old youtube videos and came across her Paper Bag Curls Tutorial.

It was nice watching her old videos like this again. Seeing the roots where she came from. Having been a subscriber since near the time she first started making vids, this video held some nostalgia to it. I often watch her vids just for something familiar because it makes me feel comforted and safe. It’s like, while everything in the world becomes scary and changes there is one thing that doesn’t, and stays static. One place filled with happy memories that you can always return to even if the world outside becomes too rough. (I have also experienced this with reading long lasting friend’s blogs).

I remember back in the past when I talked to one of my friends, May, about make up tips, and we found it funny that we both knew the business name card mascara trick.

In the end though things do change, and so does Michelle Phan. The feelings of those times don’t quite transfer to her new videos, but I guess that could just be because they are new.

And where did her cute little bunny go? I heard that it passed away ): I also wish she would keep making videos for her RiceBunny channel.

She’s still a great guru though.


Too hot for me October 3, 2010

Melina: “You’re a decent looking guy, but joyce was just too hot for you”
Me: “I know right?!”

And the truth dawns. Or rather that’s how I’d prefer to think of it – that that was the only reason why we didn’t work out back then.


Todo List October 1, 2010

There have been so many things I’ve wanted to do recently, but with my life being as hectic as it is, I don’t think I’ll have a chance to do so anytime soon, so I thought I might as well start building a list so I have something to do once in the holidays:

1. Write again. And I mean write. I want to develop some of the old story ideas I came up with way back in high school. Stories that hold the feeling of living a life unknown, and wanting to find out what happens. With a tinge of romance – romance as in interactions between a boy and a girl, but no romance as in a love story. romantic in the sense of where the scenes take your thought, but nothing more. One story I wanted to develop for a long time was about a boy and a girl who live their separate lives with no knowledge of each others’ existence. They live in the same neighbourhood but have never met. Somehow though they influence each other indirectly, like the boy might have been at the swing in the park and somehow left something there and when the girl goes there she is somehow influenced by it. Maybe a scratch mark the boy did subconciously while fidgeting might influence the grl to think about the deep things in life… something along those lines… it would be great.
Another story I want to write about and redevelop is the story I wrote for a year 12 imaginative writing piece where the backbone of the story is about a girl as she walks home with food to cook for her brother, but intertwined between this core base, you learn about events that surround that point in her life, perhaps some of her thoughts, things like that. The story was called Monika after the name of the girl, the brother’s name was Stan.

2. Develop an online facebook game. It would just be fun to do so. I’m thinking something along the lines of an rpg, run and customizable, something with gameplay like “Chronicles of Blood” on facebook, and with customizability and the ability to gain badges as in pokemon that will give you special passive bonuses in battle (like +3% attack). Not very unique, but it would be so fun to build and a project that I can have fun chipping away with.

3. Perhaps not so much a todo but RO has good memories for me.

4. I’m still interested in girls’ fashion… wonder where this’ll lead

5. Take a hair dressing course, OR at least learn how to do hair properly from youtube videos or something. Would be fun.

6. Find some good songs again. and get back the old ones I loved! Find stuff on Tommy Heavenly (former The Brilliant Green lead singer). Get back some of the old Jay Chou classics and old favs. “7 yue 7 ri qin”, “jing tian ni yao jia gei wo”, “wu ding” (maybe). Get back those songs!

7. Get back into some good jap drama. Can’t wait to find some!!!

8. Learn some good songs for the acoustic guitar and finally learn to play the electric guitar properly!

9. Make youtube videos with Mel – we’ll sing and make mini-shorts x)
Update: Yay agreement: from mel: lol WHAT! SHORTS FOR WHAT! lol BUT OK! WE CAN COOK STUFF AND EAT IT AND BE FAT TOO =p


10. Play around with makeup, because I’m interested.

11. homg sleepover at my place with Mel and Janean it’s going to be so fun i love it! YAY!

12. Do something nice for my friends. Like get them something. Cos it’s about darn time i did!

And that’s all I can think of for now. I’ll update this once I think of something more 🙂
