Rest, relax, and some other words…

I haven’t been posting as much on my blog as I had in the past few months.

After spring break, I had clicked on my account, then logged out shortly.

I’ve been to places, had my own adventures and currently on the mend from a sprained knee, and cold.

I will try to add in those collages in small intervals of posts as I can.

Starting this weekend, there should be at least 1-2 blog posts up.

I have rested and slept.

I have thought about current television shows (regular programming), and schoolwork. I have never stopped wondering what to create and wandering to new places in Cali about my blog. I just needed a break.

Stay tuned for more from my blog.

 

 

 

1 year of blogging

It was exactly one year ago when I made my first post. This blog has become a major part of my life and I am really grateful to have the blog and followers. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog (tribeccarandomthoughts) and for liking the posts that I have put up. This has been truly great gift.

Here’s to more years of blogging. 🙂

new windows 10 photo app

I downloaded a new Windows 10 app called Photofunia. I used a famous celebrity’s photo and it came out great! this photo set the scene “Roses and Marshmallows” perfectly. G Hannelius is the name of the celeb. She’s the founder of customized nail-wrap app titled ‘Make Me Nails’. what do you think of the photo?

DIY category -BAM!-

Okay so basically most of my inspiration definitely comes from scrolling through Buzzfeed Life home page and it really helps since I don’t bother to have a Pinterest / Instagram / Tumblr / & Snapchat at all. Seriously I do not. Overall, this blog does mean I can make my own social media blog not vlog (not yet tho) on WordPress! (a.k.a. shoutout to high school friend for supporting a decision I made this past summer!)

Going back to my original title, I am creating a DIY category called “DIY tricks&treats.” Everybody I’ve seen thus far like Withallmyaffection or Introvertess to say the least, they have the most amazing blogs! I felt I needed to do more but then I saw the results. I can make my own personality show without thinking I need to compete. Collages help plus clipart.

PicsArt – Photo Studio, PicCollage, Font Candy and so much from the Window Store on Window compatible computers or new ones like this article kinda promoting and launching color interests like me. I’ll leave this link here. Windows comparison

I will be starting a DIY 5 part posting ( 5 separate but all come from the original homepage [included above] ) . This post is something I’ve been meaning to do. I’ve never really had interest in other blogs till I realized Buzzfeed Life had everything from food to style to family to health to buzz/gossipy rumors going viral and well, life.

I will start the postings this coming weekend. Later!

new header image

I found inspiration from Buzzfeed Life /Food; again as usual.

I had to crop out the space there was needed but these stickers from the PicCollage app from the {new updates from the windows store} some stickers are free when you can click on them and it downloads to your pc or electronic device. There are others where you do have to pay but some of the free ones do the job for me.

I used a brown background, copy and paste from Buzzfeed Life/Food post for the ‘chocoholic party’ in the middle, and several stickers that I know are related to chocolate and at least my world of fun. Some of the Halloween-based stickers are due to me embracing the holiday and etc. I do realize some of the word text fonts* are hard to read.

Fonts include:

There’s always a little bit of…
Crazy,
Bat <– due to the sticker in the middle,
Woman,
Adventure,
Fun.

[Each word is not necessarily in the order [above] and yes I can see how the crazy bat woman adventure fun can be put into one sentence and yep, I sort of like the way that sounds for now. ]

Plus I’m showing my fellow bloggers, followers, readers and so much more… how my creativity is just beginning to show. The whole point of the header image was initially ‘chocoholic party’ but I strayed and let a part of my personality show plus “the author” in me shine. 😛

Of course: I give due credit to Buzzfeed Life online and PicCollage app you can find in the Windows store (downloaded for FREE) and enjoy some perks off of searching thru these two contributors I find great DIY and images that I like, love, hate, like, & adore. Go off and continue to find your inspirations, dreams, and goals!

Weekend whirlwind

Overthinking it

This weekend has been one of those reflecting, imperfect, loud, anxiety batch filled to the brim cocktail weekend. Contemplating the visit to ELAC Gardens, an upper deck and pleasant area for parties and speeches, I imagined what an open mic (poetry/short stories/etc.) would be like. I would have to go to one for extra credit, this was Friday. When I entered the vicinity with a friend from class, I caught my breath and thought to myself, ‘This is it. Volunteer to speak up.’ The nagging voice in the back of my mind instead said, “Don’t. You are not good enough to spar with the high levels of your peers yet. Try again.” I believed I wouldn’t fare as well as I envision myself to be a quote unquote incomparable writer of the year.

Anxiety overwhelmed me. I decided to not speak from my laptop a.k.a. my online poetry book. I enjoyed myself, listening to other people speak of original poems, well known poetry and brilliant thought provoking short stories. I felt disappointed because I didn’t offer to step up to the mic. Although when I talked to friends there, they thought I could have said something, anything. Nope. I grabbed pan dulces and my freezing persona and left the garden.

Whimsical adventure to another place

It is Saturday. I spent half of my day at a store called
Whimsic Alley, address is 5464 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036.
They were holding their Annual Holiday Fair. Holy hell of all fandoms we love and I love to continue to think I know all information about fandoms.
{Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Downtown Abbey, and so much more.}

The holiday fair had vendors:

Nerdy but still Girly,
Riddle’s Tea Shoppe and Curiosities,
Cyndie’s Studio Designs,
S&S ink,
A bird in my hand,
Whimsical Forest,
Clarity Artwork,
Kit’s Designs,
Spitfire Pizza Palace/Ashley flowers.

I don’t have the proper links to their sites of contact but you can look on Facebook for Whimsic Alley & Events for the holiday fair, where you can click on that and see for yourself what they have to offer. Every table I stopped and took several photos at, each person I met made each and every item themselves and/or through a trusted company. I will post a picture sometime later today.

Back to the store itself, it is very Harry Potter interior picturesque and the other rooms are very magical and an atmosphere that you wish you had inside your own life. I didn’t have to go to Universal Studios Hollywood for my inner geek to freak the fandom out! I do like the reviews Whimsic Alley has received on Yelp too, it was very helpful. Oh and when you go, take a camera and wallet because one way or another, you’ll be leaving with a grand smile and very satisfied customer.

Hamburger yoga

It is now Sunday. Cooking for my family is no measly feat. I am overly picky. My tastes are for another anecdote. Anyways, I was preparing and cooking hamburger meat. It was no good fun but served as a relaxation and very comforting stress ball of relief. I could squish the meat over and over again. Pound it and mold it into thick slabs of meat. My mother did assist me when the frying did scare me, a lot. Thankfully, it all worked out and it was tasty. I made hamburgers for my family.

Reflection

Although this weekend was as stress ball of laughter, noise, and reckless decisions I do not regret anything that happened this weekend. It was uplifting to know my friends are there for me, no matter how many tangents it gets me to stop talking about one topic, no matter how my feelings get the way with life, and no matter what I do, my friends never left my world. They stayed, we grew as individuals and I am forever thankful for everyone.

Yeah, that was my weekend. December 4th-6th. 😛
