15 Things Social Media Has Taught Me About People

Thought Catalog

1. People really really like other people to know what they are eating.

2. A lot of people have a LOT of time on their hands. (Why are people always claiming to be busy?)

3. Orwell was right — “All issues are political issues.”

4. A lot of people have no idea what they’re talking about… a lot of the time.

5. Like “real life culture,” internet culture is dynamic. People create and re-create it.

6. We are all voyeurs and stalkers in some shape or form.

7. People always imagine their past as better than it probably was.

8. Most people are in need of more inspiration in their lives.

9. Popular culture is either extremely easy or extremely difficult to keep up with.

10. A lot of people in their adulthood are still seeking validation from the “cool kids.”

11. People really are bad at listening.

12. Behind…

15 Signs You’re Growing Up

hahahaha. god i am old.

Thought Catalog

1. The later you wake up on Christmas morning, the more you’re a grown up. Did you get a full night of rest on Christmas Eve? If so, that indicates that you don’t particularly care. The laying in bed, anticipating, wide-awake with excitement days are over — and it’s become more of a relaxing time away from work. In our defense, we no longer get awesome gifts like Power Rangers action figures, or big Barbie sets. It’s easy to wake up for that. But bed sheets, towels, candles and various items from Target’s décor section? Meh — not so much.

2. When ex-schoolmates around your age are having babies — intentionally. I’m talking fully planned, financially prepared for, deliberately unprotected sex, purposeful baby making. From the age of 16-21ish, the majority of the babies born by our peers were unplanned. Now many of us are wondering what the hell is wrong…

D.I.Y. Instax Album

Ever since my boyfriend gave me the Instax mini 7 last Christmas, I’ve been trigger happy taking photos here and there. Instant cameras are love. Given the photos are too cute to be placed in a box hidden away, i spent my day off (Anzac day in Australia meaning no work hihi) creating an album for my Instax photos.
Image

I know a loooot of friends who have got an instax mini as well so i do hope this d.i.y. Post would inspire you to make your own albums.

First off, you’d be needing the following materials:

Paper (i used my papemelroti stock for this project)
Illustration board
Ruler
Glue
Paper end screws (i have no idea what they’re actually called haha)
Puncher
Pencil
Instax photos

The size of your album would of course depend on your instax photo sizes.

Measure the board for the cover and backing for your album. Do the same for the inside pages. Remember to leave space for the paper fold and area around the photo. Cut the excess parts.
Image

Punch holes through the cover and pages. Before binding, design your cover, here i utilized pages from old notebooks, black paper scraps and an old gift wrapper.

As for the pages, take two instax photos and line them up side by side with a space in between. Mark the sides of the photos.
Image

Taking cue from vintage albums, use paper corners in keeping the photos in place. Create these paper corners simply by folding a strip of paper into a triangle, cut excess and paste on marked areas on the paper. Wait to dry.

Image

Next is stack pages and cover then bind using the paper screws.
Image

Place in the photos and there you have it, your own instax album. 🙂

Because there is no such thing as middle ground. You are either decidedly one or the other, and if you hang on the fence to avoid the revolution, you will be cast into the pits of rabid dogs along with those heathens, the Hot Cocoa People.

Where You Are Most Comfortable

Tea People: You are into all things knit and cozy. Your ideal setting is curled up next to a window during inclement weather, inside some sort of makeshift fortress made entirely out of blankets you purchased on Etsy. You are all about the journaling, the feelings, and the way a nice cup of Earl Grey adds a distinct tinge of refinement to even the most frat boy-esque activities. As long as you are somewhere which is highly Instagrammable, there is no limit to the amount of time you can spend in the fetal position.

Coffee People: There is but…

Potted Potter Returns: A Review by a Potterhead

I’m a Potterhead at heart given I grew up with J.K. Rowling’s seven books and with the films as well. Of course, I took this opportunity to hit up the so-called craziest show by two British men who are equally as addicted to Potter like me.

Potted Potter, a show by Garry and Jessie which promises all seven books in 70 minutes. Unbelievable at first but heck why not try it for the sake of the Potter blood running in  you? I sure did, along with another Potterhead and friend, Chay.

Image

So we blew three thousand bucks on the play but IT WAS WORTH EVERY FREAKING BLOODY PENNY. My cheeks hurt from laughing too much and i literally couldn’t breathe at some parts of the show. I had to slide down my chair to stop looking at Jessie and laugh at his crazy antics.

Unlike some other shows, this one had the interaction with the audience. If yer thinking you could play Quidditch only in England, well, we (the audience) had one hell of a game. It was Slytherins VS Gryffindors that time and well of course, following the book, Slytherins lost. (Boo)

Image

Anyways, to top it all off – because I might end up ranting various lines in this review from the show – DON’T AW HIM, Potter Potter Returns was awesome! Think of what could happen if Darren Criss joined Garry and Jessie on stage.
