6 Soothing Songs I've been Singing all May!

Image
After a long day of work, I can be found singing these sweet melodies at alarming volumes. Belting every verse and chorus at the tippy-most-top of my lungs, with the help of the wonderful acoustics in my bathroom. Each and every song makes me sway as I listen and take in each lyric as they pass my eardrum and land soundly into my soul. The lyrics don't always match how I'm feeling, but that doesn't stop me from singing EV-ER-RY word from the rooftops!

1. Shakey Graves - If Not For You

Shakey Graves gives me hardcore Kings of Leon vibes. Very blue-grassy feel to their tunes. I've found that the songs have a soothing melodic flow, and the words sound sweet but really have an underlining meaning if you listen close enough. The music itself is glorious and Alejandro's voice sweeps me up and along each chord.

Happy Birthday to Me + Momocon Sunday πŸŽ‚

Image
Momocon weekend was this passed weekend, and I'd been saying how I wasn't planning to attend alllll week. Low and behold, I end up going on my birthday lol. Why did I vow against it so hard you may wonder? I just had a shitty time the last couple years I've gone, and with it falling on my birthday the shitty is that much amplified. Luckily, I had a good friend by my side to give me a good time this year.
My companion had an extra pass for Sunday, so I tagged along. We went to a couple of Steven Universe Panels, and mosied around the dealers area. Saw some familiar faces, got some cute stuffs, and helped a friend enjoy their first con [even if it was on the last day].


My friend kept telling random passerbys that it was my birthday which was surprisingly nice. He'd even gotten one of the venders to sing me happy birthday, and she had a beautiful voice!

Order Experience: 2nd Komunhurangi Order

Image
Komunhurangi opened up her shop late April through early May. Of course I rushed over at the very second it opened [I had an alarm set and everything =_=] to get some of her goodies! I placed my order on April 28th, when her shop opened. She shipped them out on the 7th, and my goodies arrived to me on the 11th.

The processing time didn't phase me due to knowing it's just her and her girlfriend on her team, packing and shipping orders, and I know she got a whole lot of orders. The delivery time was quicker than usual for a package from CA to GA.

Her style is just everything. I'm so happy we have some of the same fandoms, so I can obsess over my favorite characters in her style! How many Dekus do you see? Hah

My sweet little pieces! I see eventually having the full set of students that Komunhurangi offers in my future. For now, I've settled on a few of my absolute favorites and one of her originals:

Childish Gambino - This is America

I know you, like myself, have probably already seen/watched this video at least 15 times. BUT why let that stop me from possibly sharing it with someone who hasn't yet? I will not be silenced! Also some backstory...I absolutely LOVE Donald Glover. I have ever since the first time I turned on Comedy Central Friday night Standup, and his adorable little self was busting my sides. Then, I followed him to "Mystery Team" and "Community", and have since then followed his tunes, and been keeping up to date with Atlanta. I love you Donglover and hope you keep prospering the way you have been!



Some lovely artists who have been quick to successfully portray this video in art form:

There were other pieces that were also amazing, but these two have been my favorite!

April Watched Anime [+ read Manga]

Image
Another month has come and gone, giving me new anime to add to my "watched" list. This month showed me some odd ones, along with some even odder manga!

My First Girlfriend is a Gal "A new school term begins, as does the season of new encounters. As he surveys his class full of couples, Hashiba Jun'ichi's mind is filled with distress as he asks himself, "Why am I still a virgin?!" Having heard from his friends that the easiest way to fulfill his long-standing desire to graduate from the fellowship of virgins is to kowtow to a gal, Jun'ichi does exactly that and asks his classmate Yukana out. And unbelievably, she actually agrees to date him. What will become of Jun'ichi from now on?"

This was quite the interesting anime, and I believe went into it with too much of a wholesome mind. There's a lot of focus on the virginity of Jun'ichi and his friends, and how they plan to have Jun'ichi lose his virginity to save them all.. Mi…

My Bujo Essentials ✐

Image
Growing up, I've always gravitated towards paper and office/school supplies. I always had a journal or notebook of some sort, where I jotted down thoughts, information, doodles, what have you. Now that I'm older, I've fallen prey to the bullet journal craze. It's been a great creative outlet. Here's a bunch of goodies I keep on hand to keep my journal aesthetically pleasing to me!

Bujo/Journal I start with picking a color that I like. At first, I had a grey one that I've since then traded in for this lovely magenta one. Michaels has a handful of different colors you can choose from, and they're only $5. I believe they're a part of their Everyday deals, and they come with a variety of different page-types as well. Dotted, lined, grided, blank, blue, black, green, red! The pages are decently thick, but some inks that are too wet do seep through sometimes.

Page Markers My journal came equip with two different colored "bookmarker" strings attached.…
