today is a total blizzard outside. I’m gonna be inside ALL day, I have no reason to go out anyways, so, it’s kind of nice, I’m sleeping in, and watching the snow blast at the window. late lunch, because I didn’t want to eat until I was all done with my video. and I am, so finally! I’m caught up almost done with this jar, but, I wanna get every last bit good afternoon! I’m finally on my way to do some homework today, because yesterday we were snowed in, and I spent the whole day painting, today is one of those nights where I really do nothing, and I’m goofing off, and you kind of just get carried away. and start wearing fancy things… just to try them on. It’s time for me to shower now. and I wanna do a mask first. I will be leaving this on for 5 -10 minutes. and I’m just gonna jump in the shower, because I take pretty long showers, and by the time I’m gone with everything else, I can rinse this off my face. I finally finished up the whipped argan oil face butter, I really liked it, so, I don’t have a face cream right now. what I’ve been using is this overnight mask, because this is the only thing that’s comparable, and it’s from origins, but I need to get a replacement soon. my room is messy. it needs to be cleaned. and I got a mirror recently, that I haven’t set up. a lot of people don’t feel this way, but I love frizzy hair. it’s funny when I do this cus it looks like someone else is right behind me with their foot it’s me!! mood lighting! *clap* *watching friends* do you know which episode this is 😉 good morning, happy sunday! we’re walking back from church, service was in rememberance of Martin Luther King Jr., so I really enjoyed the service today and I’m gonna stop by the “gym”- student gym on the way home, just because I haven’t worked out in over a month, I wore my athletic clothes underneath everything, so I’m pretty prepared for that. I’m kicking back right now, and I’m gonna watch some nature documentaries, I’ve been meaning to catch up with Planet Earth II, I’ve seen some episodes already, but, I’m just gonna rewatch them, you guys know, I LOVE love nature documentaries it’s like my favorite thing to do, on a friday night like a child I have to clean up after.. she wants chocolate, I buy her chocolate. -doesn’t seal it. doesn’t finish her tea. I have to get rid of it. I always want to drink so much water right after I brush my teeth does anyone else feel that? our filter doesn’t work anymore, cus it’s been too long, and we bought a filter on amazon, and it shipped home, to California, and… we don’t want to order another one, -actually, I mean- we should, cus it’s not like I’m gonna go home anytime soon, it’s gonna be 6 months. so I’m gonna need to order another filter so that we can have water from the sink. but for now, I’m gonna go get water downstairs from a vending machine I’m so thankful for water and heating. for the past two days, the heating was out, I didn’t really vlog, because I was just at home working, and maybe it would’ve been interesting to talk about it, but it was really cold, it was 60~ 59 degrees, and it was a holiday, so no one was working, to help me come fix it, so I was wearing 5 layers, I turned the stove and the oven on, I stood by it sometimes and yesterday I was kind of having a rough night, because, I was struggling to work illustrator and photoshop, even though I do art, I am a very analogue artist, I’ve had very little experience working digitally so, I was up until like…5 in the morning. and… *laughs* and my sister wasn’t here, cus she was in new york, so- she’s much more experienced- so I was like crying, and I looked in the mirror and was like “omg I look so ugly” eventually I figured it out- thank goodness, I’m somebody who has a lot of perseverance, so even though I’m struggling, I just say- you know, I’ve come too far, I’m still gonna do it so I ended up doing the document correctly in the end, I was just trying to figure out how to turn this hand drawn motif that I made, first like trace it- and then take that and make it into an outline, that’s vectorized, and then make it into a certain thickness, so that I can make it into a- what do you call it, into like an, an ornament, for our print class so this is what it looks like today, cus we went into the lab, and got everything digitally cut out it looks like this, and I’m gonna layer it on top, so that it’s a stampable block, and then we’re gonna create some prints from it for next week. my screen saver is still a bunch of nature photos I’m on my walk to the bus stop currently, cus I am leaving for new york! very soon. Tyler is back in town, and I’m gonna meet him there. morning! so last night wasn’t so eventful, because I finally saw Tyler when it was really late, at walgreens- we met there because it was the only thing that was open and we traveled to the bnb, and then now in the morning, I crawled out of bed, and now I’m making my way to a cafe to meet a friend- Amanda Lee, you may know her on youtube for doing all her bullet journaling, but we go way back, and we’ve been growing together on youtube for years, and I first saw her when she had only 3000 subscribers! so she happened to be in new york, she asked me if I was, and I actually was! so, we’re gonna get lunch together, and hang out, so exciting- I’m actually coming upon it right now door… there’s another door. we’ve been watching each other’s videos for like 5, 4 years? -it’s actually really crazy because we have the same timeline
-yeah we both started in january 5 years ago,
-2013 we both took the same steps for a lot of things
-yeah! and its just crazy
-and we changed our channel content as well.. -yeah it’s so crazy!
-and now we’re in New York -I’m originally from Canada, so mmhmm and then we got to meet up, and it wasn’t for so long, so I’m really sad we didn’t get to talk longer

These rice cracker snacks are soo good tofu, for mapo tofu that we’re gonna make I love these intant noodles, I had it at our yosemite trip for the first time last year, did you fart, babe? -no, the fridge just opened, and it smells like ASS in there
-oh yeah -im sorry
-HER FRUIT, you know what -I’m throwing out her fruit -yeah -I frkn hate when she like we both got ramen, of course, because anytime you go to an asian market,
*annabelle coughing from stank* -you have to get the good kind of ramen
-is it THIS? -it smells like it’s that, cus the smell’s still here. -I can’t even open it, it’s stuck -maybe that’s a sign -no… -it’s not? -no it smells fresh- EWw there’s like mold -yeah… okay maybe that IS it *the creature comes out* and of course for the mapo tofu, we have red miso paste as well as the pickled radish, they’re just sliced pieces of daikon and then you wrap meat inside, or vegetables, or onions, and then.. all the chinese people know what this is and then I got natto, I love natto I eat it without rice, just because I love the concentrated flavor but it’s like more normal to eat it on rice
-I don’t smell it anymore this asian sausage- or- chinese sausage, and it tastes like taiwanese sausage, but this one isn’t the exact kind, it’s just really sweet. and I enjoy it I’ve always had it growing up korean meat, that’s marinated- it’s called sliced pork shoulder butt. frkn love chives. is this chives, or leek? because I’m ok with either -those poor chives! -conveyer belt, all set up, here you go, let’s keep this we got some hontsuyu, *screams* cool transition -exactly, that’s what I was thinking I applaud you. -how do you fold this thing? -matchy, matchy, matchy -smell it -why would you smell it after I tell you to smell it?! you know- that’s traditionally a bad thing to do -I dont.. what is that thing called? is it air something…? -you mean a dryer sheet? no..when things fall, -….air resistance? yeAH. -that’s friction from air there’s no air resistance in a vacuum because … -are you asking me? -or are you trying to figure out why? *nervous laughter* -because… -because -because. -because why?? -because -the air is not dense enough… -because there’s no AIR in a VACUUM because there’s no oxygen! -there’s no AIR in a VACUUM -the definition of a vacuum is gasLESS -well there is hydrogen and helium in space, but it’s very sparse, and where it is dense, it becomes a nebula or a star -if you could keep your shit together, that might’ve been funny. -I could hear your lips, like, *smack smack smack* I could tell you aren’t saying anything -vacuum, huh? *fuck u* when I told you that you didn’t look fat that day, I lied. -olive juice. *you don’t have to get our humor -_- * I could hear your tongue, -what about now? that’s olive juice. -no, it’s elephant juice. for this vlog, and the next couple of weeks, it won’t be this super, intense, kind of art vlog, just because currently, in this very short winter school quarter, we are having only an elective, so most people take 1-2 classes max, and I’m only taking one. and I’m trying out graphic design. for the first time. so a lot of the vlog footage is probably just me relaxing, so, the really busy art kind of, -the grind… will resume…mid february, so, that is when my sanity will fly out the window~ but y’all love that. but nevertheless, my vlogs just kind of reflect my life, and right now I am pretty happy, you know, I can do so much extra art in my free time, this is the little illustration that I drew with ball point pen in my sketch book, and I cut it out just so it would be easier to take a photo of so I took a photo of this, and, put it into photoshop and illustrator, and it took me probably 5-6 hours to figure out how to freaking trace this image and then, get the traced image into a linear format, because we had to submit this to read in the lazer cutter machine, that would later cut our linear drawing into wood so that we can turn the wood into basically a stamp. christmas tree it still up, and I don’t think I’m gonna take it down until Februrary I just wanna quickly show the print series that I came up with last weekend. and, as I mentioned, it’s not my best body of work, but it was pretty fun experimenting so the ornament I came up with was this warped checkers, so I made some variations of how they can piece together in difference compositions I also played with transparencies, because the idea of layering is quite interesting, so with these, I used the letterpress, and I pieced them together, into a sort of frame it makes it very versatile, because I’m not too sure exactly what I want, so here you can overlap them, if need be, like in this case, the assignment was to match our type with our ornament- and I think that they go together pretty interestingly this is just a test sheet- super ugly, I hate it this is to be layered, and I put yellow ink ontop of the black, but it’s too transparent to really be effective here I chose this one, because my original idea is that, you know the checker print is very warped, it’s almost like, the concept of illusions. in life, and I feel like that, assumptions kind of… almost rule the way that we think sometimes, and affects how we perceive others and our relationship with them and that kind of is translated through this warped ornament. because, it’s like, what do you perceive? vs. what it really is. so I just thought that choosing one word is pretty simple, and it provokes thought in a way, it was a really fun experience- oh I didn’t show you this one. so, here I printed these ornaments, at each corner, and it unfolds, to reveal this. so that’s my quick update for how school’s going so far, just to clarify, for anyone who hasn’t been around for this whole time, I’m a textiles major, this is a graphic design course that I am taking as an elective for the next few weeks and I’m quite hungry, so I’m gonna go outside and join Ty because we’re making dinner today. hi what’s up? oh I was watching some of my old vlogs from last year, the other day- and I realized that I had all these talking outros and I feel like I haven’t done one in a while so I’m gonna go ahead and end the vlog here and as soon as I do, that commences my editing. he’s here. -hi I wanted to quickly mention that we are nominated for the shorty awards! -wooo for the vlogging category and I feel very lucky to have been considered, or even thought of, and, also, so blessed that I get so many messages from people who say that they vote, or that they vote everyday it’s just really touching, and I wish that there could be more I could do… but -well you’ve done so much, that’s the reason why everybody’s voting for you. -and showing you no…
-you do so much, all the time -and i think everybody really appreciates that no because, this only happens because of our community -that’s true and because, we ARE here together so, I’m really grateful for the time that you spend here, and the time to send me those loving, kind, supportive, messages- or comments, that I read and I just want to say thank you. even though I feel like I can’t express it as…um as well as I want to. but yeah, the link will be down below, as it is in my instagram bio, we can vote everyday until Feb 22, so that is a little less than a month from now. and yeah, we’ll see what happens, but honestly, I feel like I’ve already WON I feel like I’ve already won because I’m so happy and fulfilled with our community, and what I get to do- -to share my memories, and just everyday moments with you so, honestly, that is enough for me and I’m just really happy. so,yeah! -if you’re as proud of this girl as I am, -then I would go down and click every single day. I will see you in the next video love you! night!
