Life Through the Camera Lens

During high school, I found myself growing enamored with the art of photography. At the age of 16, I received my first point-and-shoot camera for my birthday and thus, the journey began. Looking back, I can’t say that any photos from those early days were particularly good. However, the wonderful thing about a creative passion…

Top 13 Most Anticipated Games of 2017

I’ve wanted to do an article like this for a while, but because most of these titles are AAA (and I primarily write about indie games) I’ve held off. If you want to check out my professional pieces on indie games, you can find me at Indie Obscura. Today, as the title of this piece…

The Psychic at the End of the Stairs

When I was 19, I lived in a small garlic-scented town 30 minutes away from Santa Cruz, California. Me and my now ex-boyfriend would frequently make trips to Santa Cruz and hang out in the downtown area. There, we’d always park at the same garage, and spend several hours walking up and down the quaint…

Why I’m Excited for the Nintendo Switch

I’ve seen a fair bit of salt across the internet in response to the Nintendo Switch Presentation and Treehouse Event. These critiques range from gripes about price, woes about lack of launch titles, all the way to hating the console and all it stands for. As an individual who houses a lot of unpopular opinions…

Switching Over to a Korean Beauty Regimen

I’ve begun to notice that an increased number of beauty bloggers have begun switching over to Korean beauty products and skin care routines. In the past, I’d adopted the western trend of matte everything along with contour, highlight, concealer everywhere… you name it. I think one of the reasons why I shied away from daily…

Reconnecting with my Inner 9-Year-Old Writer

I wrote my first full-length novel at the age of nine, by hand, spanning three separate spiral-bound notebooks. My writing wasn’t exactly on par with where it is today, and the story wasn’t fantastic by any means. However, I wound up finishing the 250-page (rough estimate, it was never translated over to Microsoft Word) book…

Amazon Prime is Heaven for Introverts

There’s something magical about ordering something online and having it delivered to your doorstep the following day. Amazon has created something special with their Prime service, something I predict more shops will begin to imitate in the near future. The modern age of purchasing products online has reached new heights, and I’m overjoyed. You see,…

Best of the Weird: ASMR Videos

I talked briefly about my ASMR quests through YouTube in my first blog post, Insomnia Adventures. People found the act of cutting a 3DIO microphone out of a bread baguette pretty funny, so I decided to share other ASMR videos that I find weird and amusing. Full disclosure, weird does not always equate to bad….
