a silly wish list.

i honestly just have a couple of bucks under my name, if anything, at the moment. hence this post. a post about cool things i’ve seen around the web that i honestly don’t have a need for (or money for), but would be cool to own. why does it always happen that anytime i find something neat i am out of money? ugh. a girl can dream, right?

anyway, here’s my current silly wish list accompanied by cute illustrations/photos:

jeffree star’s velour liquid lipsticks + others

but they’re always sold out..

anything by lomography

i love the surprise of not knowing how your photo will turn out until you develop it. i also really love the effects plastic cameras give your images; light leaks and vignetters take my heart. even if some people don’t like them.

headphones

because my guinea pig ate my last ones and i really miss them… damn you little robyn! (who i can’t stay mad at)

glasses

ok, these i do need. my current ones are broken and scratched. but i always hear stories of people spending upwards of $700 on glasses + exams and it scares me..

an automatic ball launcher for my dog

kind of silly (but then again, this is a silly wish list) because my golden retriever probably gets bored in our backyard and deserves it for being awesome..

paper shoot

a camera made out of paper. simple!

buuut, i know myself. once i get paid, that money will be spent on my guinea pigs, ha! oh well, i’d rather see them happy and well fed than me with yet another camera that i just want for my collection or more lipsticks that i’ll probably use just once.

what things are on your silly wish list at the moment? things that you want just for the fun of? let me know!

have a very nice day :)

p.s: creators (those that i found) of the illustrations are tagged on them.

east and a little west

It’s may, the month of graduations, finals, end of semester, etc. I see a lot graduation pictures floating around my social media feeds and it gets me thinking what their next step is gonna be. and then it gets me thinking what mine is gonna be.

I’m not set to graduate til next may, supposedly. but I really don’t know what to do afterwards. grad school? get a second bachelors? get a job? I don’t want to get a job yet. I want to keep studying. I just don’t know what..

everyone tells me it’s alright not to know what to study, and I know so. it just bugs me not knowing. at the moment I just know this: I want to travel.

I know that sounds super cliché. I kinda even hate saying it because of the cliché-ness of it. The I’m-gonna-backpack-through-Europe-after-graduating kind of cliché-ness. bleh. but no, I just think the earth is amazing and I want to keep exploring it. whenever. after graduation, before graduation, with my work, with my family. anytime!

a few places I would like to visit:

St. Croix
Germany
Ireland
Belguim
Turkey
India
Amsterdam
South Africa
all of Mexico
Connecticut
Washington DC
Alaska!
Edinburgh

and a lot more others.. my bucket list keeps growing daily.

I really want to visit all of those. but first i gotta figure out what to do academically to get there..


what places are in your bucket list to visit? any places you recommend I visit? were/are you concerned about what to do after graduation just like I am? let me know cuz I’m over here growing gray hairs, haha! have a nice day :)
