Read between the Nines

This blog subject couldn’t have come at a more perfect time. Considering I am transitioning jobs, taking my three most important and final PR courses, finishing my band’s second EP, and about to start my Fresno Fair internship, I really don’t have much time for myself. So let’s sit back for a moment and fantasize at the thought of having time to do what I please:

…If I had two hours to myself

Chances are, I would probably play video games. I just downloaded a gameboy emulator onto my iPhone, so I get to play nostalgic games on the go! It’s nice just to get out of my head for a while and get taken to another world, even if it is just a weird nintendo one.

…If I had four hours to myself

I would get a mani pedi, gel for both. I realize it doesn’t take THAT long, but if I’m relaxing I don’t want to be stretched on time. There’s just something beautiful about those little massage chairs, the soothing salon jams and those hot cloths they put on you. Oh my gosh, incredible.

…If I had a whole day to myself

Since this is all fantasy, and I can say pretty much whatever I want, I would fly first class to Disneyland. I would hire what they call a “plaid cast member” to escort me around the parks. No lines, no problems. And I would literally eat so many churros that I would probably implode. But that’s just me.

Snow White and the Seventh Blog

Social media, such a fine little beast. When does one post? What does one post? In a world surrounded by quirky memes, thought-provoking blogs and pretty much anything in-between, how do you stay relevant? With the amount of noise there is out there, it’s hard to say what the solution is. Social media is tricky, everyone could agree with that.

socialmedia

What I love:

  1. Access to everything. – The world is completely at your fingertips, and that’s rad.
  2. Keeping in touch. – Literally if it wasn’t for Facebook, I would have no idea who’s engaged, having babies, traveling the world, or a little bit of all.
  3. Twitter. – It’s just my favorite.
  4. Humor, all over the place. – social media made everyone a little bit funnier, and I’m not complaining.

What I hate: 

  1. Access to everything. – Yes, it’s also what I love. It’s really the best and worst thing about social media. Privacy’s sort of a thing of the past.
  2. Pessimism. – It’s like some people just got social media apps to complain to a larger scale of people. Stop.
  3. The pressure. – It sounds silly, but there is a pressure to maintain certain consistencies online. I have found myself too often stressing on when was the last time I posted on instagram? Or was that tweet funny enough? It’s ridiculous, I get that.

Challenge:

The hardest thing for me, is constantly posting interesting content. It’s definitely a struggle I face with managing my band’s social media accounts.

The Sixth Sense

Fall. What can I say about this beautiful season. Firstly, it’s my favorite season ever, for obvious reasons that it is the best season. Here’s said reasons:

1) Leather jackets
Do I even have to explain? They look cool, much functional and just work with any outfit.

2) Hot coffee
Like, all day every single day. It’s essentially glued to my hand.

3) It’s the kick start to the best holidays.
I’m talking Halloween, my birthday, Christmas and New Years. All good things.

4) Yoga pants
Clearly a cliche to add, but holy moly are they comfy.

5) Not hot weather.
Thank the beautiful lord.

That’s all. For now.

I didn’t have to FOUR-ce this one

I am writing a poem about the color blue

It is the name of a dog searching for clues

It’s the reflection of my eyes

It’s the color of berries in my pies

It’s the skin of Dr. Manhattan

It’s the shade of my lavish satin

It’s the subject of a famous 90’s song

And it’s not that thong-tha-thong-thong-thong

It’s the color of a famous hetchhog

But it’s definitely not the color of a famous log

I can’t say my favorite color’s blue

But I can write badass poem about it, can you?

Third-y, Flirty and Fabulous

While it’s pretty clear to me why I am the most interesting person in the world, it was brought to my attention that I need to inform the public as to why. Poor world, you have been in the dark too long.

1) I am the reason everyone has an iPhone.

This one time, I emailed Steve Jobs while he was India, and suggested he make Apple cool again. He was reluctant, but went with it.

2) I let Kanye finish.

Because, lets just be honest, I have the best album of all time.

3) I built Disneyland with my bare hands.

My friend Walt and I had this crazy idea once.

4) Kylie Jenner is inspired by my style.

Can she just stop copying me already? It’s alarming.

5) I’m actually the biggest thing since sliced bread.

Just ask Wonderbread. I’m significantly denser than  it.

6) Buzzfeed copies my blog format.

6 reasons why.

7) I use quotes from Jennifer Garner movies as my blog titles.

And if that wasn’t obvious, we are done here.

8) I made Ray Bans cool.

While on the set for Risky Business, Tom Cruise asked if he could borrow my Wayfarers for a scene. I told him that I guessed he could, but I wasn’t sure if the world would quite “get” it.

9) I was the first person to live in a pineapple under the sea.

Never believe what you’re told.

10) Finally, I never prefer a Dos Equis.

So stop thinking the most interesting person in the world would expect anything else.
