i'm over here today, talking about good pizza & how awkward i am in public.
happy graduation, peeps!
on the same note: i see "tutorials" as good things.. kind of unnecessary sometimes.. kind of like art. people can come up to it and say, "PSHH i could do that. a kindygartener could do that." yeah, but did you? no, they did. & they get the international credit & recognition for it. i saw a step-by-step illustration about "how to paint your nails correctly" and someone commented with "why would anyone waste their time making this? painting your nails is not a science." like, duh. painting your nails is not hard. but there is a science to it, and that is it- people go to nail tech school to learn that, and now you have that knowledge. be grateful. it's also like learning about gravity. "gravity keeps you on the earth; gravity makes things fall." like, duh. why would someone waste their time writing that? i experience gravity every second; it's not a science. actually it is, pumpkin. MOVING ON.positivity, consistency, & salt: there are things in common with "popular" blogs and websites. one is the positive feeling that comes in, around, and from the site- it's addicting, people like it and they will come back for more. another is consistency: unchanging looks, unchanging layouts, repeats of popular posts or series & personal style. for some reason people like that. and also, salt. nobody likes to have rainbows and ponies shoved into their faces day in and day out because it's just not human. the salt is the "bad days" the "i'm swamped" and the "all of the colanders in the house are dirty so i tried draining pasta without one and now my hand is red and burned" things that happen once in a while. even chocolate chip cookies need salt to be sweet.
