A different type of facebook

Wet Monday - A religious tradition?

In central Europe there is a bit of a strange tradition, supposedly linked to religion. Two days into Easter, is Wet Monday, where guys soak women in water. The tradition initially celebrated the Spring, symbolising cleansing. Then, when Christianity became more dominant, the tradition meant cleansing the soul of sins.

Would you absolutely hate or love this day if you lived there?

Sleepy baby bunny

I love milk!

More things to do at home

Adopt animals
Moving away from your parents is nice, but you can feel quite lonely as well sometimes. So stealing the neighbours cat is a great way to "own" a pet, without all the finances and obligations...

1. Lure in cat with food.
2.Be nice to it. Don't "shuu" it or kick it. They don't like that.
3. Give it milk.
4. Let it into the flat and let it enjoy the comforts of your home.
lock all windows and doors (optional).
5. When you get bored of it let it go back to its owner. To be fair, the neighbour might get a bit worried.

I looove cooking. It's fun, you get to be creative and you get to experiment.. Hopefully it tastes good, most of the time at least.. And it's a good way to keep you occupied.


Not just for girls.
I know it sounds intimidating for all the guys even thinking about considering doing face masks, but its not that scary...

and you skin does feel amazing afterwards.

Or another version...

Things to do at home..

My flatmate and I were a bit bored the other day and got inspired in Poundland. We bought soil and seeds and started planting some veg and herbs. Is it sad that I get really excited every time I look and see that some of its grown a little...? Shh..don't answer that. (specifically directed to Nadine!)

If thats not really your thang.. maybe do some other "motherly" stuff, like sewing. Yay.. But actually, it is kind of fun. Since Steph and I don't really have a life but need to keep ourselves occupied, we went down Portobello market and bought a few 1-pound scarfs, black thread and a sewing kit. So our latest project is making fragile cushions that will tear as soon as someone sits or touches it.

And if you don't enjoy any of the above, there is always the Xbox. Yes, I know.. we really don't have a life.

Girl's night

Had a bit of a girly night last night, and why not make the most of it and get some creativity flowing by having a photography session?

YCC Unite 3

Unite 3 was held at Cargo pub the other day, and Brittony and I eagerly turned up with our portfolio.
A lot of Lincoln folks were there, which I hadn't met in ages, so it was nice to have a short catch-up. Met a lot of interesting juniors as well as directors, who had a lot of great advice to give.
Brittony and I were a little disappointed in the Mojitos though, as we had 3 each and didn't feel a thing. All the cameras were a bit scary as well, but I suppose you just have pretend they're not there and stretch your neck, you people with squiigy chins get me..
Overall though, it was a well enjoyed evening!


Oh how photogenic we are...

If its sunny you should listen to music

Mp3 sunglasses. Making easy, easy. Don't worry about all the hassle with wires and heavy gadgets. The only problem now is people actually thinking you are deaf when you don't react to anything they say.
