Less is More

Mirrored tree house.



They said it couldn't be done. People thought it was computer-generated eye candy, impossible to build, and death for birds. But architects Tham & Videgard built it, one of six units in a 'Tree Hotel' which recently opened 40 miles south of the Arctic Circle in Sweden.

HOW COOL IS THAT.

Recently, there's been a newly-opened (and first ever in my country) Forever 21 shop here. It's not that in the photo (I WOULD LIVE THERE IF IT WAS). I've been there twice, and I've realized it's hard to step in Forever 21 without any money. Not that I didn't have any, but I didn't have much. Oh, the joys of a student allowance. I did manage to buy myself some stuff like a shirt and a teacup ring. After my exams, I will go back. Any suggestions on what I could buy? I took a look at their website and I was in love. :( This is my reward, then, for myself after hell week. I WILL BE BROKE ONCE I GET OUT OF FOREVER 21. Broke. Now if only they'd set up an H&M store here! Or at least someone get me a large suitcase and a plane ticket to New York or Tokyo or something. ;)

"Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play."

 

(But now) Penny Lane Bloom knows better. These past weeks, I was drowning in heavy, mind-working reading. My brain needed something light for a change. What light reading could be better than chick-lit? I have been looking all over for a copy of the book The Lonely Hearts Club by Elizabeth Eulberg. When I finally found it, I was ecstatic. With so much reference to The Beatles, this made me turn my mere love for them into a full adoration. Basically, it's a book about friends vs. boyfriends. As Penny puts it, boys are 'lying, cheating, scum of the earth'. Rather than looking for more romance after a severe heartbreak, she swears it off completely (at least for the next 10 years or so). She then creates The Lonely Hearts Club as her defense against junior year heartache. I absolutely fell in love with the book's quirkiness and humor. Yeah, it can be pretty predictable, but it makes for well-written chick-lit. :)
GOD SAVE THE QUEEN.

Guess who's back! ... sort of.

 I will be, after exams! Which is next Saturday! And I pinky-promise to update this page as soon as possible. For now, I am deep in school work, school work, school work. I can barely think straight. To my friends, you have every right to remove me. But I will be extremely happy if you don't. Expect loads of PSDs, brushes, (maybe) fonts, and I might even squeeze in some tidbits of my life right now. This, I swear! And to the people who commented on my previous entries and added me, I'm sorry I have not been able to respond. :( NEXT WEEK, GUISE. NEXT WEEK.

this is me during hell week exams:

“Some days, I get such a sick feeling. Everything about my life seems so empty, so meaningless. Each minute holds something familiar, something I saw yesterday and the days before. Every second seems to drag on, and my heart feels so lonely. I feel so bored with my life and everything in it. And then other days, everything feels so great. The sky sings pretty songs of love and I can’t stop smiling. Everything I encounter gives me that same feeling of the warm sun on your skin after you’ve been cold so many months. I have hope and everything is bright and new and so, so lovely. The only difference between these days is a few hours of sleepless nights and dreams of how I wish my life could be.”
