The Dark Circle

Dark circles, also known as the bane of my life. I’m actually…kind of embarrassed and even ashamed to share these pictures – ignore my crazy eyebrows! – but this is my blog, so I am posting this. I have very, as you can see, problematic dark circles. It takes me about 45 minutes alone, just to cover my circles. That’s partly to do with being still quite new to colour correcting, using foundation and also using concealer. Yes, I have spent the majority of my life just accepting them. Being desperately unhappy, but accepting them. Until I watched some Instagram … Continue reading The Dark Circle

I’m not one of those…

I read an interesting (read: insulting, biased, dickish, douchey – because I’m none of the ideal things) article a few days ago. Basically, explaining what women should do/wear/behave to make themselves appear more attractive. So! We seemingly shouldn’t have chips or smudges in our nail polish manicure…ever. Which is hilarious to me, as my nails are always chipped – I use my hands, funnily enough. And when my nails are painted, they’re ridiculous colours. Sexy, matching underwear is apparently a mandatory rule. Another hilarious one. Yea…I’ll stick to my neon sports bras, tshirt bras and ‘nerdy’ boxer shorts, thanks. Knowing … Continue reading I’m not one of those…

Overwatch’d

So! Night before last I played some OW comp, solo queue =( you can probably guess just how badly it went. I lost about 100 SR -.- bringing me down to low 2300’s. After a losing streak of 4 matches – purely down to the entire team (myself included) making stupid decisions, not utilising ults and of course, trickling. Also…Bastion, Widowmaker, Hanzo, Genji, Reaper and me as Zen, on attack, didn’t help much. I saw zero point in Mercy-ing, as everyone insta-died regardless of my healing input. So yea. Last night, I go on…and we win our first match, by … Continue reading Overwatch’d

Playlist Chat

Okay, so as we’ve established before, I listen to a lot of music. Usually when I game, unless I really like talking to you. So yea…Cy heard me humming along to some music while we were playing Overwatch (obviously I love you Cyanyde, we only listen to the music because you like listening to it too =p), and she wants a quick rundown of the playlist I use most. Which is my…ah, charmingly titled ‘Snipin’ ‘nd Fuckery’ – oh yea, this blog probably isn’t for you know, decent people. Anyway! Okay, so…I snipe a lot, and I am extremely reckless…let’s … Continue reading Playlist Chat

Overwatch? Overthinking & Support your Support!

New season on Overwatch… And woah. It is not going well for me. Usually (as in the past 4 seasons) I rank platinum. Until last night. Went through my placement matches (7 of which with my OW bestie, thank you R!), and honestly…I sucked. Like…I think there was 1 redeeming match where I played semi well as Ana (my support main anyway). Otherwise…seriously, I was doing everything wrong. Making stupid mistakes. I mean…I was being (deliberately) distracted…but…I’m usually good under pressure or while being distracted. So yea. I’ve ended up barely scraping into gold, which sucks. As I need 500+ … Continue reading Overwatch? Overthinking & Support your Support!

9/6/17

Today isn’t a great day for me. The 13th won’t be either. Nothing will ever change that fact. But again…it is more bearable than it has been in past years. I’ve still escaped away to be alone and just think. Popped Placebo on. I usually go back to the instrumental playlist…but Placebo always calm me down, while also making me feel…happier. A little less melancholy, despite Brian & Stefan’s legacy as melancholists. Placebo ease some of the sting of the day. Talking, just daft banter, with friends helps too. As they engage me, and 1 is managing to get me … Continue reading 9/6/17
