BGM: 8 now - food house

I am. Still alive!!! Wow.

Tbh, many things happened and I had to take a break. I'm really glad I did because I feel so much better now. I've been making an effort to not spend as much time online and it's definitely paying off.

However, I'm feeling inspired in regards to web design again so I've decided to continue updating here. I'm not sure what's next for the site yet, but I know it'll be good!

Please stay tuned until then.

♥ new year etc.

BGM: Go To Hell - USAO

In time for the new year I thought a refresh of the blog was in order, so here it is! Isn't it cute? I like it a lot. It's based on my tano*c shrine, cause that's one of my favourite layouts I've done. The design was inspired by some Japanese blogs I found, so it's only fitting that I repurposed it for my own blog.

This year was hard especially towards the end, hence my uncharacteristic hiatus. Despite the difficulties, I'm happy with how everything turned out. For new years my best friend hosted a party. I ended up sitting on the sofa in between her and my girlfriend and I couldn't help but feel content. It felt like all the hard moments had been worth it.

Hopefully in 2023 will bring more epic plasticdino #content but in between working on my degree, my job, just staying alive in general it might be a bit hard... we'll see lol.

BGM: i need a cigarette - ayesha erotica

Halloween was a little underwhelming I guess. I went into school for all of five seconds wearing a cute Halloween adjacent fit and almost no one else was wearing anything spooky! There was like one person cosplaying. I literally go to art school! So disappointing. I expect better of everyone.

In the evening I watched Tetsuo: The Iron Man. And there were things that were happening on the screen for sure. There was audio. And also visuals. And there were also edits and camera angles! Say what you want, but they definitely released it as a movie.

If for some reason you are curious about Tetsuo, I loved the reviews written by rain's space. I also loved koinuko's review. So you should read their pages! I did consider adding my own thoughts as a bonus to my Halloween reviews but I couldn't think of a way to summarise my opinions in time 😭 Anyone who's seen the movie knows exactly what I'm talking about here lol. Although, I think I did enjoy it overall. The effects were great for sure. My next school project is video and sci-fi based, so I'm definitely going to take inspiration.

After Tetsuo I rewatched Saw. And it was great. Then I tried to rip the DVD cause I wanted to make an AMV but VLC wasn't playing ball. In the end I just recorded a tiny part with OBS and made a dumb edit cause I was committed at that point. I'm still tempted by the AMV idea tho lmao. Stay tuned?

Yeah, that was basically my whole Halloween. Although, today I went to the pub with a friend. And tomorrow I'm dying my best friend's hair AND THEN I'm going on a sort-of-date with this girl from my life drawing class (long story). With all that I'm pretty glad that I stayed in. I can only do so many things in one week you know!!
