Quote of the day

by funnylittlestories

 “People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that’s bullshit. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they’re afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they’re wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It’s all in how you carry it. That’s what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you’re letting society destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to feel your pain.” ― Jim Morrison

Little pleasures

I just rediscovered my childhood candy – Fruitella today. I remember having tubes and tubes of it when I was younger. It is so sweet and yummy. And… It is made with real fruit juice! That makes it a healthy snack….. to an extend.

Well.. it definitely makes my study day a lot better. Sigur ros and fruitella.

You get me.

I truly believe that one of life greatest blessings is to have someone who gets you, understands you or attempts to do so. I have been really fortunate to have found many throughout my life and also have someone close to my heart in London. This is quite vom as she would call it but bitch don’t care. Our many dates together exploring Londontown, dancing the night away, having fatty moments, sharing our deepest thoughts, being absolutely silly and keeping each other sane in this intense graduate course. Cheers to friendship. Image

#bitchdontcare

Hashtags are everywhere now and some people seem a little too excited about it. I was showed a post that looked like this.. #longhairdontcare #selfie #fridaynightout #danceallnight #dressup #makeup #longlegs #foodporn #pizza or whatever. Yea.. calm down people. It is crazy how this culture started and everyone seems to be infected with it these days. I personally don’t understand or see the point of hashtags. Just to understand it a little better, I actually googled the origins of hashtag. Chris Messina, a social technology expert, is credited to have come up with the very first hashtag on Twitter. The purpose of hashtag was to gather discussions and online exchanges but I am not too sure whether that’s still the case. People just freaking hashtag every word with a photo of themselves.

To go in line with the current culture, here is my attempt.

So… I don’t think hashtags are quite for me. If it works for you, why not I guess. Whatever flows your boat.

Here, the sun sets at approximately 9.15pm. It is strange as the sun rises at about 4.30 in the morning and sets after 9 at night. I am definitely blessed with abundance of sunlight at this time of the year. It is quite nice but a little trippy for my body to adjust to. With the skies so bright, we rested in the park after a meal and enjoyed the last rays of sunlight.

This Place Was A Shelter.

by funnylittlestories

I fell in love the first time I saw him live. Both times that I have seen him, he played in intimate small places in downtown LA. Today, I was blown away again. A friend and I went to see Olafur Arnalds, an Icelandic multi-instrumentalist performed in an old church in Hackney. The acoustics were amazing and every sound was amplified and clear. When I heard the first song, I felt a little overwhelmed. There is this strange and funny thing about memory; some tunes, scents or tastes can evoke memories and past feelings (some that you have decided not to think about). His melody had that effect on me. A flashback of moments with someone who was very special to me appeared in my head. I closed my eyes, embraced that moment and let it pass. The night continued with him performing songs from his new album “For Now I Am Winter” with dark shadows and coordinated lights flashing behind. It was captivating and beautiful. He has definitely moved on from the “Living Room Songs” into more edgy beats crossing over. My favorite part of him is his quirkiness and jokes. He has a way to make the entire audience laugh. It was an emotional and inspiring night. I would highly recommend Olafur’s music and also to see him live! Check him out: https://soundcloud.com/olafur-arnalds

Nudity.

by funnylittlestories

There is a fine difference between getting naked and feeling naked. Some people can feel naked without getting naked and some people don’t feel naked getting naked. Okay, this may sound confusing. I promise I am not going in circles. Feeling naked is the uncomfortable feeling as you feel exposed and maybe vulnerable. Getting naked is the action of being naked (not wearing any clothes). There is a bit of excitement in getting naked especially in public. For me, it feels quite freeing. When I was in Germany, a friend and I stumbled upon a nudist area in the forest and we were taken back at first. The experience was bizarre. There were just men and women walking around completely naked with children around. Some were laying down getting some sun, others were eating, doing casual activities. We couldn’t stop giggling and feeling a little silly. It felt a tad bit uncomfortable on my part especially seeing it. We then decided to join the fun and got naked ourselves. We were laughing throughout and had so much fun feeling free. Nobody cared how we looked and everyone was just there. It was amazing not feeling naked while getting naked.

Unwinding on a Sunday

by funnylittlestories

I took it extremely slow today and woke up to the big bright sun outside. The sun makes people want to be outside and I had to go out to our backyard to work on my literature review. Working under the sun makes it a little bit more fun. ImageI did make a really yummy salad and felt good eating it. It is filled with quinoa, corns, onions, celery and lots of yum-ness. This was much needed after a fatty night out.

Now that I am 24.

by funnylittlestories

I want to be home on a Friday night cuddle under the sheets and watch a movie with a bottle of wine.

I want to protect my heart from hurt but still find love.

I want to dream big and achieve more but be realistic.

I want to eat healthy because whatever shit i eat will show.

I want to hold someone’s hand and walk in the park.

I want to sleep under the stars, dance in the rain and feel alive.
