Life dump: October

So what do you do when you’ve had a heartbreaking month? (Like, hypothetically low grades and not being able to participate on a particular craft fair. Hypothetically.) I compile a list of good things that have happened this month to at least cheer up a hypothetically sad me c:

Meet “Obo” our (surprisingly!!) working DC motor. This was a requirement for school and thankfully my friend E really spent time on making it and she was being really OC and yay it worked! Also, the robot design is really cute, don’t you think?

Surprise cheesy greeting cards are the best.

And of course getting a free shopping spree c/o J c: And he was the one who insisted we go shop! Cutie. These are just a few things we bought. I think the chocolate shop shaped tin can was really adorable, not to mention I love these kinds of drawing styles. We also found giant pretty tape! It’s as thick as a packaging tape roll! Also birthday toilet paper. I should bust this out everytime someone’s celebrating. It’s so coooool. Allof these we bought in Landmark Trinoma c:

I also made this chubby panda (pattern here.) Three words: squish, squish, squish.

I also finally got around to doing a friend’s palanca stationery using my gocco! I… kind of want to keep these for myself because doilies + neon = looooove. at first I thought it was a craft fail because of all the carbon bits that stuck to the screen, but I guess it went better than expected.

While we were hanging out at the techprep room we spotted a few pages of an old, worn dictionary. Of course I had to get it, I love ephemera.

Oh and I think the best part of it was this:

Hihi, hello brother. This is why you should wake up earlier.

Maybe October wasn’t so bad after all. :)


Marceline in action~!

I just want to take the time to show y’all where Marceline’s new home is c:

Also, last day of first quarter exams tomorrow! Then there’ll be a long weekend, which is good timing so we can all catch up on our zzz’s.

Have I ever mentioned how my school is probably the only school I know of where Economics is hard D: The exam killed me awhile ago. Ugh.

Procrastination Time~

I made a felt Finn today, even if I was supposed to be doing homework and studying for my future (I mean seriously if I fail that test I would have to beg money for the rest of my life)

So why would I make Finn at a time like this? Because everything’s so stressful right now that the only thing I want to do is curl up with tea and watch Adventure Time. Yes I am secretly a 6-year-old that drinks tea. Sometimes life is so stressful you just have to stop what you’re supposed to be doing and do what makes you happy. c:

Well, after this my friends started asking me to make their favorite characters for them. I think the secret to life is to know that we are all secretly 6-year-olds inside.

Mindmap #1: College.

Yes, I know, I haven’t updated at ALL D: It makes me sad too. Funny thing is, I’m on a crafting mood today, but my mom ran off with my camera. Thanks mom, now my blog is collecting dust instead of readers. ANYWHO. It’s almost the season for college entrance exams here, and I am both excited and terrified about taking them, and going to college. Here is a mindmap I made to illustrate my point. (done on my very awesome moleskine)

I also have more blog posts to come, with stuff about my Sg trip, Japanese crochet books, and making a loooooong purse. Wait for it!

Stay Argyle, until then. c:

Dying, but not dead.

Fourth year high school is hard. Why do I need to study electrodynamics in Physics when I’m not even planning to go into a Physics related course? Sigh. Well, it’s a challenge and I have to work really hard, but that’s not an excuse to let my blog accumulate dust, right? So yes, I do not post as often as I’d like to, but this blog isn’t dead nor dying (though I am because school and college and the ~future~ looms ahead).


That also means I have not run out of things to post. Time, maybe, but not things to talk about. You guys know how talkative I can get.


Hopefully, hopefully I get a post up by tomorrow.
