I used to hide inside stores like that as a kid, but establishing my own furnished apartment? Never thought of it. This just got added to my bucket list. Hang on, about to go to Walmart right now.
Whistles flee my lips.
When you smile my heart beat skips.
I just stare. You’re hers.
That panda curled up in the basket is so me. This video by itself should make your entire week.
This video never fails to give me the chills. These bright girls should be an inspiration to all of us. Fight for your right to speak and express yourself in any form. Speak your heart and mind, but don’t forget to treat others as you would be treated yourself. Respect and be respected.
Today’s post was inspired by The Daily Prompt: Angry
The heavens open, and my mouth remains agape as the thought arises, “How beautiful is this sight. I would be lucky if I even got the slightest sniff of this paradise I’d like to call home someday.”
The Epitome of Ethereality
The fashion industry is fast paced. The moment one trend is “in”, it is considered dull the very next. Don’t let labels define what looks good on you, what is chic and what is not. You are the master of your own life. Your body is merely a car that you control. Just like you can upgrade your ride with forced induction, a custom paint job, and better brakes, your attire represents you. Be yourself. Help replenish the Earth of it resources. Reuse. Recycle. Be fashionable. YOUR WAY.

the state of being fulfilled with yourself and your accomplishments, a happiness not dependent on anyone else.
South Asian weddings are the best! Henna, Bollywood music, lights, dancing, and colorful ethnic outfits. So much merriment and jubilance.
1. Go on a road trip with your best buddies.
It must have been a while since you last saw them anyways. We all get caught up in our own lives and drift apart. But once you see them again, it’s just like old times. What better way to bond than by being car-bound for six hours? Make sure to call shotgun!
2. Meet your inner artist.
Get away from the world and the problems it brings you. Go to a secluded area to just self-reflect, even if it is your backyard or local lake. Take a breather, ponder about who you are and what you want to be, and put those emotions into writing or art. Go on, write a poem. It helps to be mushy gushy once in a while.
3. Start a new hobby.
You remember that thing you said you would do if you had more time? Well, this is the time to do it. Take flying lessons, learn archery, tennis, or whatever it may be. Some activities are limited by age. It’s hard to go sky diving when you are 70.
4. Try new cuisines.
Food is the path to anyone’s heart. Try something you have never eaten before. Duck, lobster, calamari, shark, rabbit. Thai, Mongolian, Afghani, Indian, Greek. Your youth is the time to go crazy. You have to watch your diet once you are older.
5. Spend time with your family.
It’s true, family has your back no matter what. See how they are doing and update each other about your lives. Play with the new babies in the family, have a barbecue, and maybe even a small (but wild) family party.
6. Make a summer playlist.
Every superhero needs their own theme song. You are a man/woman on a mission: to have the best summer of your life. Compile a playlist of cool songs for when you are chilling at home, driving, and road-tripping. You will feel the LIT-level go up drastically.
7. Visit a theme park or museum.
You don’t have to travel to explore. Start small, within your city. Museums can be fun if you go with other people. Learn something new about the world. What you know can only make you stronger. Check out the amusement parks nearby. Nothing sings water parks more than summer.
8. Get involved with your community.
This vacation isn’t just about you. It’s also about what you can do for others, so try to give back. You will have this warm feeling that no road trip will give you. Start a club for the kids in your community, have a fundraiser, donate to charity. The list is endless.
9. Make awesome memories.
Don’t forget to take a bunch of quality photos wherever you go. It’s not as valuable as the real life memories you make, but it will just have to suffice for the future. Maybe you can make a neat scrapbook to show your kids one day. One think you should never do, is limit your options (make sure it’s legal though). Do something out of the ordinary, weird, spontaneous, and crazy. Ask yourself, “If not now, then when?”
10. Binge watch Netflix.
Having fun can be emotionally and physically draining. Sometimes you just need to be alone, curl up under that fleece blanket, and indulge yourself with a good rom-com (or horror movie). Make that midnight Walmart run to get Cookies n’ Cream ice cream and extra buttery popcorn. Treat yo’self.
