I'm back and here to stay (hopefully)

I've been away because of a personal crisis. Sort of a quarterlife crisis. Not sure if my work was right for me anymore, if I should change career or just my workplace and also trying to take on a million projects. It was confusing! Now I'm going to simplify my life for now until I know enough about myself to get the ball rolling. My new interests have lately been craft based. I am in the process of making a cosplay costume, some jewellery for two very different people, some new shoes, jewelery box, a bunny rabbit, baby burp rags and a whole lot more stuff. See crafty! And of course lots of piccy to follow!

A broken heart...

Lately i've had a few friends who got married  (Yeah Congrats! ) and also sadly a few people who have broken off their engagements. Now i have another thing to worry about, apart from the gallons of inhaled ice-cream: A broken heart can actually kill you !!!

Microaggression? asian?

I'm asian ! Born in Australia 1st generation ! I constantly get asked by people...

Stranger: "So where are you from"
Me: "I'm from Sydney"
S:  " No no no no i mean where are you born"
M: "Australia"
S: " No no no no ... i mean arent you Chinese?"
M: "Yeah when did you come over? "
S: " I was born here..."

                  Or some variation thereof...


Its not just me ! It turns out that many people get just as annoyed as me. Actually now it doesnt bother me as much anymore but i love how people coy around the issue and what they say.... Where are you from, Where is your family from, What is your ethnic background, Your english is very good when did you come over... and lots of other funny variations.

Have you had similar experiences.... or have you made a blunder?

Favourite Apps

Only a few months ago i would have laughed at people who say they were addicted to their smartphones, now i just sigh and hug my smartphone tighter. At the moment my favourite apps are

6. Evernote- I have heaps of post it notes and this is now the electronic version.... more notes to ignore




5.  Tripit- I'm a bit of a lazy person with my holidays and this app puts together all of my details of my trips from emails.




4.iRunner- For those who dont have a Crapple and have Shitdroid instead this is a poor version of Temple Run, but its sooooo fun !!! I love being a battery and absorbing energy !

 


3. Angry birds Space- Admittedly i've just started this a few days but omg its fun !!

 


2. DrawSomething- I've got a few colour packs and drawing very vague things or just cheating and writing the word, its a fun world.




1. Smurfs Village- I'm at level 19 (slow starter) and i'm addicted to being the Mother Smurf and taking care of my little brood of smurfs.



So what are your favourites?

Crafting

 Its not what it looks like and its actually a travel MUG!!!! How cool is that!

Hunger Games !

I cant wait until the Hunger Games movie comes out.

The Hunger games is based on a book about post-apocalyptic world where one country who rebelled against the big dog is punished with hosting "The Hunger Games". Katniss Everdeen, 16yr old who when her sister is conscripted to join "The hunger games" takes her place instead. The hunger games is a battle which 12 kids join in what kinda sounds like a mixture of cannabilism and killing.

It sounds pretty nasty and scary at the same time. Very interesting, i hope it doesnt disappoint.
