A Not So Blue Monday

Monday, 7 May 2018

Hello pals! Apologies for not being around last week, the days just seemed to slip away and before I knew it, it was Sunday already! I'm hoping this week will go slower though because it's my birthday week and I have a whole lotta' celebrating to do! Here are the things that have made me particularly happy this week:

HUJI app_________________________________________________________________________

Like everyone and their mother on Instagram -literally my mum loves this thing- is now using this app and I think I am a little late to the party but I can't get enough of it. It's literally an app that works like a disposable or 35mm film camera, every photo you take is different and it allows you to experiment with exposure and light leaks. I do think it is a bit gimmicky and I understand that photographers are pulling their hair out over this app, but it's just so fun and the  a e s t h e t i c  is so darn pleasing. It's also giving my insta theme a new lease of life, I might be over using it but I'm having fun darn it and I just love the effects this app makes. I guess we've all travelled back to 1998, what a time to be alive. 

Zozaleenie _______________________________________________________________________

I have a new favourite youtuber and she's bloody great. Zoe's videos are a mixture of everything and when I watch them I find myself wondering how one human can be so multi-talented! Honestly she writes music, sings, draws, paints, does gymnastics and is just a lil beaming ray of sunshine and watching her live her life through her videos gives me endless motivation and positive vibes, especially whilst the sun shines outside. 


Picture the scene. My flatmates and I are lying on our sofas after a pretty long night of gin and dancing. We have just finished yet another season of Ru Paul's drag race and our sleepy eyes are opened by an automatic trailer. The trailer contains clips of a lil, cute red panda skipping and then the next moment, there's screamo music playing and the whole screen goes red. We sit up, transfixed. Emily exclaims 'what the hell was that', Charlotte turns her head with a smile and says 'let's find out'. We watch all ten episodes in a day, this show is life changing. It's basically exactly what I described, the plot revolves around this lil, awkward, relatable red panda who hates her job and has a misogynistic boss. Her cathartic way of emotional based coping is to head to a karaoke bar and sing songs in the heavy metal genre. It's as crazy and mental as it sounds, but it's so, so good. Absolutely hilarious and probably one of the weirdest things you've every seen. If you too are hungover and in need of some light, relieving, Japanese cartoon animals singing heavy metal, this show is made for you. 


How was your Monday?
