I’m not going to make a “hey it’s been a while” because I’m sure people are sick of it, but hey I’m here to talk about how much I hate anti-technology and anti-social media films and society in general because it’s been on my nerves for a while. Let me first off say that, yes, social media sucks a lot of the time – especially in our current political climate of the world. I would say in Australia it’s not too bad, but with the influence of America, American politics and American society at best, Australians (including myself) have a lot of opinions on the current President of the United States and the politics surrounding his election.
To be fair, I’ve been to university for two days, so I can’t say the first week, but I write my entries on a Wednesday so let’s just say it’s the first week for the sake of it. I did go last Tuesday for a program orientation and then Thursday for like a big orientation thing and then classes started on Monday (which I tell you, was very eventful). All of the readings for my class were already online so I did a lot of highlighting and making notes online (I still haven’t finished all the notes for my Cinema readings oops~ and I need to get on my Pop Culture ones too).
About almost a month ago I bought a pair of period panties from Harebrained, and the specific type of underwear I got was Redpool (a joke version of Deadpool, one of my favourite Marvel heroes. Because of crazy shipping and the cost of the underwear. I found a local (local enough that they were two states over but still, local) online store named Beserk that sold the same underwear. Using conversion, the period panties alone from Harebrained would be $15.64, so they’re still .36 cents cheaper, but putting in shipping cost $7.50, so all together it’s $19.50 USD which is $25.41 which isn’t too bad, but I prefer to buy from the Australian brand, now onto the review.
My friend Charleen has written an entry titled Winter Skincare Routine that I thought was interesting, it wasn’t life changing or anything (soz Char) but I too want to look after my skin more than usual and hey why not make a blog entry for my followers (those that are out there) who might be interested to know of my skincare and my beauty regimen.
I thought I’d change things up by putting in a review (also my goal of writing more blog entries has already failed as I haven’t posted for over a month so you know). I thought I would review the TV show on Netflix (CW channel if you’re American) because I have a lot of thoughts and opinions about it, this will spoil the first two episodes but I have a tl;dr at the bottom if you just want to read something quick. I don’t know if I’ll do any more reviews, but hey who knows what’ll happen!
Here’s your usual “a year in review” blog post, last year I made one titled 2015, a year in review, it was a blog entry speaking about my 2014 resolutions and then my 2016 resolutions which guess what = I’ll review them and see if I did it and I’ll talk about my 2017 ones. Some people might find them stupid, and even I was one of them, but in a way I like to see Jan 1st as a ‘new day/new year’ you know the whole ‘new year, new me’ which I’m going to be the same person, let’s be real, but in a way to change how I want to perceive myself. So let’s get on with it.
The one thing that has always fascinated me by most standards is the evolution of language in not only my personal life but in the lives of many people. I think from my own evolution of language at least with the Internet is that I used to use short language ‘u/r/ppl/etc’ you know that text language when I was between 8 – 13, roughly when I was maybe 13 till about 18 I would turn my head up against text language “use the word you, not u” I found it absolutely stupid people wouldn’t use the correct word.
