Farewell, old friend

Two weeks ago, I heard that you went missing, and last week end you were found. I already knew that you wouldn't come back to us. It was the logical thing to think. You never ran away, rarely got yourself locked up anywhere and you were old. So old in fact, that those past years, when I saw you sleeping somewhere, I was always somewhat scared that one day I'd find you dead some day. So you would assume I was prepared for this. But I was not.

People say cats are less attached to their human "owners" than dogs, less loyal, less protective. They obviously never met a cat like you.

Narcissism vs Body Dysmorphic Disorder, or: The Selfie-Addiction

Hey guys!
It's time for another pretty long rant. If you don't feel like reading through all of it, I'd still be interested in your opinion on the article in question, so if you read through it, leave me a comment and let me know what you think!

So I just recently came across this article about how "Scientists Link Selfies To Narcissism, Addiction & Mental Illness". Bam. What should I say. I know it doesn't make sense to give this article any more attention when I actually think it's poorly written, but I just wanted to put in my two cents on the topic. Anyway, give it a short read and a few minutes to think about the article before you continue to read here - and feel free to tell me your opinion in the comments!

First of all, personally, I really don't like how this article seems to throw Body Dysmorphic Disorder and narcissism in the same pot. These are like complete opposites. Simply check out traits and signs of narcissism vs signs and symptoms of BDD and notice the differences.

Cupcakes, cotton candy and jewelry

Hello guys!

I somehow procrastinated too much this week so I didn't update my blog, shame on me!
Last week end I was at a party - it was Mimi's (not Mimi my former room mate, but a Lolita friend) birthday and so I decided to use the opportunity to dress up in Lolita!

Sorry for the crappy photo again...

The color of what is real /// short outfit post

Ahh the month is almost over and I still have some outfit photos left I wanted to post!

I didn't really put a lot of effort into dressing these past days. I was at work most of the time so I didn't bother to wear "nice" clothes or make up. Most of the time I'm just extremely tired lately. I could sleep all day long and still be tired. I tried to do more sports again, but it just doesn't really help. my sleep-wake rhythm is totally messed up and even if I get to bed early I can't fall asleep before 2am or so. When I get up the next morning and make it through the day like a zombie, I feel incredibly tired. At work I have a hard time concentrating. And when I get home in the evening, I sometimes just fall alseep on the sofa at 5pm or so, and wake up an hour or two later, and of course then I'm restless until it's 2am again. It's really fucked up, but I just hope it's that passing "springtime tiredness" that people talk so much about. I never had that before, but I suppose it could have to do with it.

Anyway, here's an outfit I wore before I got possessed by some lazy sloth or koala spirit:

Hair care routine part II: Why I don't like silicones

Time for part two of the hair care routine mini series!

Here I'll just talk about why I chose the specific products that I mentioned in my previous post.
The hair care products I use are all from a local drug store and thus probably not available where some of you live, so while in the first entry I focused on specific products that I use, this time I'll just try to explain what is important in a hair care product for me, and what I recommend too look out for. It might help you to look out for hair care products in your area that are similar to the ones I use.

A comparison pic from when my haircut was still fresh! The rest didn't change so much, it's mostly the bangs that are now finally cut properly :3 I should probably add that that was a really good hair day on the left photo, and normally my old "bangs" were just a wall of hair over the right side of my face XD
