  1. I thought I replied back to this! Weird lol sorry I took a long hiatus again! It got destroyed by my bf's brother. I was at my mom's and I guess my bf's brother came over drunk and started to try to fight my bf so my bf locked him out of our place. He got mad and tore apart my wreath which was hanging on our door....I was pretty pissed, that wreath was so messed up, in many many pieces. He's never supposed to ever come up here, especially drunk. UGH! I'll definitely give Room 237 a try! I love stuff like that so thanks for the recommendation!
  2. Thanks so much! If you do, post a pic!! Thanks so much! I love the Martha Stewart one because it's different and I love the different fabrics used, especially the silky ones and I love the colors! My favorite wreath is the spring one though, the green one. Love all of the colors and brightness!! I may have to remake it sometime. It was destroyed. I'd love to the documentary! It sounds so cool!!
  3. I've found times when I've felt like that and haven't been active! I'm back for a bit. Way less busy in my life at the moment. Definitely try to talk about anything! I second that! Seriously! I was good for a few weeks but then it died off a couple of weeks ago when I got majorly busy!!
  4. So I've recently been interested and love making wreaths for my door! So far, I've made a few just for seasons or holidays. Here they are. I started with the winter wreath that I got from Martha Stewart. The rest were just wreaths I came up with on my own. [spoiler=11] [spoiler=12] [spoiler=13] [spoiler=14]
  5. Lol!! Seriously was a horrible procrastinator! Even though I knew it would be good to at least get started, I still waited until the last minute lol even studying! The longer I went to school, the more I started to procrastinate! Started studying for tests right before I had to take it! Lol yeah definitely different for you! lol!! Well I had my tuition paid for, I did have to pay for my books and anything else but tuition was taken care of by my employer. I also lived on my own so definitely needed to work and I liked to not struggle so bad so I worked full-time. They allowed me to work part-time with the option to do full-time hours. It got easier after a couple of years when they allowed me to work at home for a couple of days though!
  6. Ah so true! lol!! I just thought the decisions were dumber than usual!! Almost like n00b decisions were being made! lol Never got into Game of Thrones so I will have to find something else to watch now! I've always watched it on my DVR anyways, so I never tuned in on time. I just got way busier at work so I guess that will take up a lot of my time. I feel like with all of the hours I put in, nothing ever really gets done like I plan. Oh well now I have this time to focus on work and not TWD lol But I won't set my mind on someone actually dying, or at least stressing over it or anything like that. What happens, happens but I think anything can happen. Someone can die or someone can get rescued in the nick of time before a fatal blow. Guess like you said, we'll see....in six months lol I'm glad they don't wait a whole year like a few other shows do that I love. But yeah, I figured anything can happen. They can either kill a major character or have them get saved right before the killer hit. I wouldn't be surprised either way, maybe Morgan and those new guys they met will help them out. Expect anything and everything lol I'm definitely expecting anything. They've pulled some stuff on us before and I wouldn't be surprised if they did it this time. Make us think one thing but comes out to be a whole other thing.
  7. I think you're the one that told me I really needed to watch it!! I finally watched it thoroughly in one go about a year or so ago! Before that, I've always just watched the middle to the end but never ever the beginning.
  8. Lol!! Well without working and going to school at the same time, I have so much more free time!! Although now I'm so much busier at work and will be for the next month, no exaggeration. I have so much work planned for the next few weeks, it's crazy. And hopefully after that, it chills down a bit but who knows...lol I love breaks! Too bad in college, it means catching up on work or studying lol Although it meant that for me, I'm a procrastinator and didn't go anywhere for Spring Break.
  9. I was thinking the same thing. I wonder who it'll be...someone posted a video slowing down the audio and it sounded like everyone yelled out Glenn though. But my other thought is that, if it is Glenn who gets beat, will he die from it or just get beaten really bad and recover later? Guess we'll see. The cliffhanger was good enough to keep watching but not great enough to feel like I need to be super obsessed about it like other season finales. The last two episodes were...not up to par in my opinion though. A lot of dumb decisions and such.
  10. Ah yeah, sorry about that! I usually keep everything pretty private, at least just show things to friends rather than the public lol And glad you enjoyed the pics! It was a weird movie! I think the weirdest though was Inside!! The Shining was an immediate favorite! I love it when a movie can scare you or really immerse you in creepiness without just jump scares!
  11. Ah I'm excited fro you!! I left because of college! lol You seem to be the other way around.
  12. Ah I had the album on "Friends Only" lol I changed it to public now!! I don't know of any safe way to speed up the time, it takes a long time for the oils in the paint to dry up or evaporate or whatever it does lol But if you dry ti too fast, it starts to actually crack. I've just learned to stick with acrylic lol I mean at least until I feel like painting with oils but I will now keep in mind that it will take half a year to dry. So I guess I can do an oil painting and then after a couple of months, do another and wait for the other one to dry. But yeah...it all depends on my mood lol Asian horror movie is amazing, but some, not all...just like American ol but Asian horror movies usually has better plots and emotions than American movies. I remember High Tension, Inside, and Let the Right One In for the European movies. I also remember I loved REC from Mexico? Could be wrong, maybe it's Spain...I'm thinking it's Spain now that I think back. And Naina...which may be Mexican....ah...I need to look them up lol Also heard Matyrs is a good European horror movie, I keep forgetting to watch it. Dead Snow is a great horror comedy!! Should definitely try that one! Omg The Shining!! My favorite!! I don't know how I forgot that one!! It was truly creepy!! It really gets in your head. Maybe because it's so long lol that you just feel like you're so encased in the movie!
  13. Omg yes, and the fact it wasn't even just the eye either! Those movies are crazy lol I never looked at life or anything the same again! Well I hope you are able to move there when you can!!
  14. Ah ok! I won't be able to play Thursday but can play Wednesday for sure and tomorrow!! I'll be gone from Friday-Mon!! Big hugs!! I will wait for you replies!! :D :D

  15. Oh! I didn't realize it has to be different from the previous ones as well!! Well dang, that's gonna be annoying after awhile lol Thanks for letting me know!!
  16. My new heels!! I'm trying to start wearing heels. I've always been a flats and sneakers type of gal and because I have the amazing luck of being super clumsy, I was always wary of wearing heels! I also lacked confidence. I still lack confidence but nothing like how it was before. It just felt very weird to wear heels and feel taller and have more of a presence when I'm used to always being hidden and unnoticed! (I'm only 5 feet!). [spoiler=6] [spoiler=7] [spoiler=8] [spoiler=9] [spoiler=10] I have two other pairs to post! But need pics of them! Will probably post them in the next couple of days! :D:D
  17. Dang!! It's already so late too! I just got back home not too long ago and then ate and showered! I thought I'd be finished quicker but had to make rice. Let's try Minecraft!! I'll actually be home early tomorrow because I have to get my mom from work!! So I will definitely be able to play! I will hunt down Minecraft lol I don't have an older Save besides one from way way before so it's almost like starting over. I had the luck of accidentally saving over my most current one with that glitched one!! I tried everything!! Blowing up the gate, tried aiming at where the door used to be, everything!! TT^TT I've never tried Skyrim multiplayer. It has multiplayer right? Or am I wrong? I'd have to check lol *EDIT: I can't find Minecraft anywhere in any redboxes in these two valleys!! TT^TT **EDIT EDIT: I bought the game. So we are good to go lol I had a promotional $15 in my Xbox account!
  18. It is fun!! I've found quite a few materials at various stores too like dollar stores, big franchises and small little ones! A weird craft/party store that had random stuff but I'm lucky I found it because I got so much trim from there!! And then good ole eBay lol!! I put all of these up on my walls at work, except the mermaid...I don't know if people will have a problem with it even though I covered the nips lol some people can be very conservative and religious out here!! Thank you so much for your kind words!! I only use primer when I go to a special occasion and want my eyeliner or shadow to stick on really well!! I only bought the ELF eyelid primer and eyebrow highlighter 2-in-1! It works pretty well!! I also carry around oil blotting sheets! For everyday wear, I only use eyeliner! All has to be waterproof, smudge-proof and dark! It's hard to find good ones out there even if it says smudge-proof or waterproof, they really aren't! Or maybe my eyes are just weird. I also use liquid eyeliner for my top lids and pencil for the bottom. Right now I looooove Physician's Formula liquid eyeliner, can't remember the exact name of the eyeliner but it's a fat bottle that's red and silver. For the pencil, I use CoverGirl Eyelights in Pearl Vibrance or something like that! I do use toner!! I have to! I have acne prone skin. I usually wash my face with an Asian tamarind bar soap or Aveeno bar soap in the morning and in the shower, I use St. Ives Green Tea scrub or Apricot scrub, both with sacylic acid. Then tone with an acne toner and then apply an acne cream or gel and lastly, a moisturizer. Either a CC cream moisturizer or a sunscreen moisturizer. I used to not wear sunscreen but I'm doing laser hair removal appointments now! And so I definitely need to apply sunscreen! I try to use all oil-free products and even products that says that it doesn't clog pores and helps reduce oiliness but my face will still get very early half way through the day. So at work, I just have a toner and cotton pads there to wipe my whole face and then reapply sunscreen. I've never tried foundation and powder, except for at prom but I hated it! lol!! It made my face feel like there was too much crap on! So I never wear face makeup, plus with the acne problem, I don't dare try to keep clogging my face up lol I think even the CC cream I use that says it won't clog pores, still gives me acne lol I'd love to get creative with eyeshadow though!! But haven't. I usually just use gold or light tan colors! I have experimented with colored eyeliners though! It's a good alternative for my oily lids! lol!! I have teal, purple and gold! I have a couple of pics on my FB with it, I'll have to remember to stick some pics on here with different makeups I've tried! But they aren't too extreme lol I'd love to see your different makeup!! I will post pics of my shoes now!! I love them so much!! lol!! I will wear my new new shoes tomorrow and post them up, I don't currently have any pics of my new shoes I got a couple of days ago! But have my other heels I just got in pictures. I'm much more of a flats wearer! I hate my feet so I only wear sandals at home when I go outside to do something really quick but to go out, I always wear flats or sneakers. And I guess fuzzy boots for the winter! (Fuzzy on the inside though! lol) How long is your hair now? Are you cutting it short? Or just trimming it?
  19. Oh! I don't have Minecraft but I played it from Redbox, maybe they'll still have it. When will Borderlands end? I hope I can find someone with that super long railroad so I can get that cheevo lol Omg!! Ahahaha I tried that too, traveling around with so much weight! Lol!! After 2 hours though, I was like, "I can't keep doing this" ahahah so then I would start throwing things away that were heavier worth less value. It was sad to throw them all away though lol I love picking stuff up in games! lol!! So cool that we're alike! I need to get back into Skyrim!! I love it! But I ran into a glitch my last game and gave up!! I was so far!! It was wher I go to venture out with some archaeological team and had to blow up a wall with my power to let the gates go back up that was locking me inside. Blew up the wall. Gates went up, I ran into the cave and then when I came back out, the gates were down!! I have no way to get out!! *cries*
  20. Aw you're so nice!! Thank you!! I wish I could do cool makeup but I have the oiliest eyelids in the world!! Primer does help but still have issues with it staying on and not going into the crease. Primer just prolongs it lol The Cambodian dancer one, I think it's the last pic, is the first mixed media one I did. (That's why the proportions of the woman is off lol) And I loved doing the mermaid one!! So much fun!! There was a part in there that I messed up, next to the eyes, the black from her eyes got dragged somewhere on there lol But thank you!! They were a lot of fun and it was cool venturing out to find stuff to put on there. I figured to just do a whole color theme type of thing. I have pink and ice blue left and then I think silver where I gathered all of the fabric and jewelry! Your words means a lot, so thanks!! I love talking to you! So much fun! And you're so damn sweet!! I'll definitely show pics of my hair! And I just got new shoes and love them!! So I may share pics of those as well! I was the same way with time!! With school and work, I completely put off all of my gaming, art, and everything really!! But now that there's no school, I have time for myself!! I can do stuff with my hair, start wearing heels, do art, game, it's really nice!! lol Although I got more busy with work so I haven't done so much of anything lol! But whenever it cools down, I can focus on myself again. I have a hard time focusing on myself because I always cared for others more. I'd love to see any of your creative projects!! It'll be so cool! Thank you!! I love the oil painting because the blending is so seamless!! But I hate the dry time. It took me 6 months for it to dry just so I can do a second layer! Then another 6 months to put everything on it! Too long lol Acrylics, I can finish the painting in one day, wait for it to dry for a day, see if there's anything I need to paint then stick everything on the next day! lol These paintings are a long process. Waiting for paint to dry and then glues. Once I glue certain things, I have to wait for the glue to dry to glue something else on there. But it's pretty fun. I should work on another. I actually have a whole FB album of my artwork and some of these paintings actually has multiple pics of some of the steps. And thanks so much again! A lot of those movies are mostly Asian! I don't know if you watch a lot of Asian horror but I do lol I like Asian and American horror. I watched a few European and a couple of Indian (still Asian but the movies I listed were mostly Korean and Japanese) but haven't ventured out too far in that realm. The couple of European ones I've watched, I loved. Can't totally remember the names though. And Halloween movies! I don't know how I forgot ot list those when those are my favorite ones out of all the American horror series lol!!
  21. Final Destination definitely does not help! My gawd do I go around looking at everything so different now!! It was pretty hard to watch through with the surgery and the contact implant surgery or something like that, but where you slice the top layer of your eyeball. It was some...thing...lol That's pretty awesome! I heard Canada is great and everyone I know who went enjoyed it!!
  22. So here are my mixed media paintings! I start off with acrylic painting and then add all of the other jewelry and fabric afterwards. The first one is actually an oil painting though. The only oil painting I've ever done. [spoiler=1] [spoiler=5] [spoiler=2] [spoiler=3] [spoiler=4] I tried to do a color theme for each. The first I did was the Cambodian dancer. Then I did the oil painting one, I wanted to do a simple oil painting since it would be my first oil painting I've ever done. Then after a couple of years, I realized I loved these two projects and did another! The green themed one. The fourth was the mermaid and then the purple one!! I do still have a pink and ice blue theme to do...I think also a gold and silver one, but can't totally remember. I go out to venture to look for jewelry, trim and fabrics! So whenever I find something pretty, I buy it for the projects!! I usually try to go cheap with the materials, so everything I buy is usually clearance, reduced, or on sale! After I finish the painting and mod podge glueing, I use a clear varnish or mod podge sealant on the painted part to protect it!
  23. I liked John Wick! But as a person who falls asleep for anything and someone who is used to sleeping at a certain time, I couldn't hold out until the end. So I need to rewatch it and watch the ending!! I love horror that has good plots, although a lot of horror movies have plot holes, there are a fair amount out there with great plots and executed very well. I think that's why I like Korean horror movies than other countries. Japanese is second, Thai is third and then American and all others are equal. Japanese can have some good plots but it's a bit rare...they have the weird things down but the plots always need more work. They do know how to make some scary movies though, ones that will truly scare me lol Korean horror movies, I usually don't have a problem with. Scares the crap out of me and has great plots. Thai movies are pretty great, good plots and I watched a few that were in the psychological realm, but their CG effects are horrid and kills it for me lol I like American movies for the gore rather than the scare. Inception was also a great movie, I loved it! Really messes with your mind! And I getcha, my sister is like that. She shows no emotion...very very rare lol I'll definitely put some up for my next blog post! Which I will do now! lol! Ohhhh Wytches sound awesome! Whenever you read it let me know. I've gotten both Marvel and DC, more Marvel though just because my uncle had more Marvel. But as for the ones I actually bought myself, more DC than Marvel. The Cat, The Wig, Bunshisaba, Hair Extensions, Whispering Corridors, A Tale of Two Sisters, APT, Killer Toon, Muoi, Cello, February 29, Forbidden Floor, Arang, Cinderella, Evil Twin, Shadows in the Palace, Living Death, Two Moons, The Red Shoes, Ringu, Ju-On, Carved, Dark Water, Tales of Terror, Alone, Shutter, 4bia, The Maid, The Road, 3 Extremes, Texas Chainsaw movies, Jason movies, Freddy movies, Chucky movies, and a few more but can't think of them all. What about you?
  24. Ah, ok, yeah I probably would definitely feel weird after wearing glasses since 4 or 5 lol Laser eye surgery is pretty scary, I had to watch a video demonstrating a laser eye surgery session and it was cringe-worthy lol 8 is the time I usually get up now lol I used to wake up at 630 or 7 but now that I live closer to work, I don't have to wake up so early! Meditating will definitely help with sleeping! I have no problem sleeping once I actually try to sleep lol I've been to Bangladesh but I was a baby so I don't remember it! lol!! I would love to travel more. Hopefully once I go to Cambodia, I will definitely make a stop somewhere, you always have to stop somewhere in Asia, whether it's China, Korea or Taiwan. So I will stop in one of those and then stay there for a bit. Maybe I'll try Japan! Have you traveled anywhere around the world?
  25. Thank you! I'll definitely leave the chef stuff to you! lol! I can post some food but I'm no chef or major foodie lol Cheesecakes are heaven though, I wish I had someone that loved making cheesecakes live near me! lol!! I'll have to check out your blog!! But maybe after I've eaten because I'll get hungry. I've only read some Batman, Batgirl, Catwoman, Hulk, and some older comics that my uncle gave me!! I can't completely remember the names of the comics. I will have to go look at my inventory list and get back to you!! Oh, and the Simpsons! Love The Simpsons!! lol! I will definitely try to blog about cakes one time!! I promise!! lol!! I love finding people who are similar to me!! If only I can find them in person! Hahaha And that's exactly how I feel about learning and I love to learn to add to my skill set!! I got into mixed media lately!! I will paint a something with acrylic and then add materials to it!! I will definitely have to make posts for them!! I would love to find more horror oriented comic books! So far, I've mostly collected more popular comic titles and then I have my uncle's old comics in my mix. So far, I've collected a few of each popular title (that *ahem* has romance...because I'm a chick lol!) Do you watch a lot of horror movies?!
