Sorry/Gold Dangly Ring

13 Aug

Evening Meebsies,

I have to apologize for the lack of post. I’ve been sooo busy. I don’t even know if there will be another post this week. As I am typing this, I am functioning on zero sleep. I haven’t slept in over 24 hours. I feel a crash coming on. I will try to post as soon as possible.

In other news, I got a really cute ring in the mail today. I know. Random. I will talk to you guys soon.

By the way. If there are any products or tutorials you want to see, please send me an email. ^^

Cute right? ^_^

Have a good night Meebsies. I know I will. Lol. ^^

Love,

Meebs

Where Is My Happiness?

4 Aug

Heya Meebsies,

This next post will be a little heavier than most. I just saw this video by Bubzbeauty and was inspired to write this. I hope you like it! ^_^

Where is my happiness?

It’s a strange but common question. Where is my happiness? I mean, come on universe.  Isn’t it about time that you gave me some happiness? When is it my turn to be happy? When is it my turn to smile? I don’t know why, but these past few years I feel like I have been asking myself this question a lot. Why can’t I be happy?

Perhaps the real question we should be asking ourselves is; what does happiness look like? Can we say that we don’t have something or we can’t find something if we don’t even know what we are looking for to begin with? This questions leads to the next rant…

Do you know what I abhor? I abhor the cliché idea that happiness comes from another’s love for you. I abhor how when all your friends have boyfriends or girlfriends and you don’t; all of a sudden they pity you. The worst part is you eventually start to feel as if their pity is not misguided. Perhaps, there is truth in their pity. I am not ashamed to tell you guys this, but I have not had a relationship for 4 years now. It is hard to be alone sometimes. You look around you and all your good friends have someone in their lives. While you sit alone at a party; they are dancing and holding each other. For some reason, I always pictured happiness looking like that. I use to wonder, why can’t my life be like that?

Let me tell you a little secret. That is not happiness. Someone once told me, “We make our own happiness.” We ask ourselves, “Where is my happiness?” Strangely enough, it has always been with you. Everyone is given the potential for happiness. It is just what we choose to do with this potential that dictates if we will eventually find this fabled happiness. Maybe this is why so many people struggle to find happiness.

If we have the potential to be happy, why am I not happy? Let me tell you another little secret, love from someone else will never give you true happiness. Beauty will not give you happiness. Success will not give you happiness. Family will not give you happiness. I know what you’re thinking. What are you talking about Meebs? Of course things like my family’s love, my husband’s love, or even my stack of hundred’s love will give me happiness. I am here to tell you that this is not true at all. Do you know what will truly give you happiness? Your love.

I know I know. Now I just sound like a crazy person, but hear me out.  Happiness comes from doing what YOU love and caring about those who YOU love. We all have this belief that we need to be loved in order to be happy. No. You have to learn to love in order to be happy. Happiness is as simple as loving whatever you want to love. If your husband loves you but you don’t love you husband, will you be happy? No one can give you happiness. A good example would be volunteering. If you think about it, you are not volunteering to get recognition for your good deeds. You are not expecting thanks. Yet for some reason your act of giving love and care for others through your time, brings you unimaginable happiness. You may think that it is strange. Through giving my love and receiving none, why do I feel this happiness? Curious…

Contrary to popular belief, happiness is something that is sought out and taken. Not given. Now don’t think that taking happiness for yourself is selfish. Don’t worry. The thing about happiness is; it is different for everyone. You are not taking someone else’s happiness by indulging in yours. As long as your happiness does not harm the others around you; you have all the right in the world to pursue your happiness.

If you want to be happy, do what you love. Love what you love. It doesn’t matter if someone doesn’t love you. Love yourself. I could sit here all day and tell you all the things I love about you, but it won’t even matter. Until you learn to love yourself, my words are nothing.  Even as I sit here a single women typing up this post. I am extremely happy. Why? It’s because this is what I love. This is my happiness.  Now go and unlock yours. ^-^

Thank you so much for reading. I hope you guys have a good night or morning. ^^

Thank you Bubzbeauty for inspiring me to realize my happiness. I wish you the best in your future endeavors. Also, CONGRATULATIONS!!! ^O^

Here is Bubzbeauty’s Happiness Video ^^

Much love,

Meebs

Happy Fourth of July From Chicago!!!

4 Jul

Night Meebsies,

Sorry about the really late post. I hope you are all with your families having a great fourth of July. I just wanted to send my regards from CHICAGO!!!! We just finished watching the fireworks at Navy Pier. Even though today was 100 degrees; I still had a lot of fun. Be safe and have fun!! ^^

Here are a few fireworks. SOOO PRETTY!!!

On a side note. Something CRAZY happened today. IDK all the details, but I think there was a shooting or a fight at the Navy Pier today. All I know is I was at the indoor shopping plaza when I decided to go into a toy store. All of a sudden people started screaming and probably 200 people started running away from the center of the plaza. The shop keeper immediately pulled down a gate to the entrance of the store and told everyone to exit from the back. Next thing I know, I see the cops pushing and cursing at this guy. It was really scary. I’m so glad I decided to go into the toy store, or else I would have been trampled to death for sure. Let’s just thank god that no one was hurt.

Sorry to end on such a troubling note. Have a good night and sleep tight everyone!!! Also, HAPPY FOURTH!!! ^_^

Warm Regards,

Meebs

Diary Entry 2 (The Taste)

3 Jul

Hey There Meebsies,

How are you all doing? I have been having a fabulous Summer so far. I can’t believe that June is already over! With July here, I am off to Chicago for 2 weeks. I can’t wait! WHOOT! ^O^ Sorry for going off topic there… Every year we have a huge event called the Taste. I think that every city has some form of the Taste. I actually arranged to travel to Chicago so I can make it to the Taste of Chicago. ^_^ Without further ado here is the first pic. Lol.

So many people. So much food. *0*

We even have a stage for local performers to show us what they got. ^^

Went to Lunch at Dancing Zorbas. Anyone recognize the name? My Big Fat Greek Wedding maybe?

Had to get a Gyro of course. I was a little disappointed that I couldn’t get the sauce because it had feta cheese in it. T_T (Fun Fact: I’m allergic to dairy) But nonetheless, it was really good. As you can see I dug right in before I remembered that I needed to take a picture. Lol. Just couldn’t resist. *drools*

Curly fries are a no brainer must. ^-^

Told you guys I can’t resist anything with mango in it. Had to get fresh made mango juice when I saw it. FYI. The goofy looking guy in the picture is my BEST FRIEND EVAH!!! We’ve known each other since elementary school and still managed to stay friends. I would die for this guy. He also took most of these pictures. Props to him. He is also recently single ladies. Lol. ^^ Remember guys, treasure your real friends. I’m not talking about the 300 friends you have on Facebook. I’m talking about those friends who have been by your side when you are at your lowest. Only true friends will make sure you never fall; and even if you do, they will never hesitate to pick you back up. Tell your friend how much you love them now! ^-^

I know maybe I shouldn’t have, but since I am a strong believer in trying everything once, I had to try a deep fried Snicker bar. Yes, I said a deep fried Snicker bar. You thought a Snicker bar was delicious. This takes delicious to a whole other level. I think I had to run an extra 30 mins on the treadmill to work off this bad boy. But soooo worth it…so worth it. Lol.

Had to buy some caramel corn for my sister because she wasn’t able to go. SOOOO GOOODDDDD!!!! If you have ever had Pirate Booty (The popcorn you perverts lol). This is like Pirate Booty on steroids. No joke.

Had to play some games even though I never win anything.  T_T

My favorite fair ride.

Saw some interesting people. I was a little curious to what was going on right there. But turns out they were in a band performing at the Taste. Cute family. ^^

Hamster ball anyone? I was serious considering trying this out. But my friend reminded me that with my hand eye coordination. I would probably hurt myself or cause wide spread panic throughout the festival. I think it was within everyone’s best interest that I stay far away from it. Did look really fun though. If you have ever been in one I would love to know how it was.

Of course I had to check out the local artists. I particularly liked this guy’s because he specializes in fairy tale art. I am a sucker for fairy tales. Even though people always tell you that fairy tales aren’t real. I’d like to think that they are. I would like to think that one day I will meet my prince charming. Good does triumph over evil. Alas, perhaps this is just wishful thinking… On a side note, this is pretty amazing work. I would buy all his paintings if they weren’t a little out of my price range…poor college students sadly can’t really afford $3000 art.

I’m going to end this post with this couple of love birds. ^^ We watched them for a long time and not once did they leave each other’s side. Made me smile. ^-^

P.S. Just got a Twitter. Follow me to keep up with my Chicago adventures. ><

Diary Entry 1 (Farmer’s Market)

28 Jun

Good Day Meebsies,

I thought that I would start a new category of posts for a My Diary Segment. It’s just going to be random dairy life stuff. ^^ Yesterday, I went to a local farmers market. I’ve always had a love for street markets. Whether it be in my town or in Hong Kong; there is always something really humbling when it comes to street markets. Not to mention, you can get some pretty good deals, while supporting local businesses. ^-^

SOOO MUCH HONEY. The best thing about this honey is it’s all organic. Great for tea or making masks. LOL ^^

Many local artists use the farmers market as a way to sell their art. I loved this vendor’s glass creations. SOOO PRETTY *0*

I don’t think anyone can beat the fresh flowers at a farmers market has. The florist made this bouquet especially for my friend. So pretty. Reminds me of summer.

I have no clue what this flower was called. But the lady who made my friend’s bouquet was nice enough to give this to us for free.  If you know the name of this flower I would love to know. ^-^

I also got a henna while I was there. If you guys don’t know what a henna is, it’s basically a temporary tattoo. They apply a paste that dyes your skin and it lasts for about 2 weeks. It’s not painful at all and really pretty. In the picture above it’s not the final product. This stage is when the paste is still drying. It’s so amazing how they do hennas. The lady that did mine doesn’t use a stencil or picture. She free hands all the henna she does. She is AMAMZING!!! I could never do what she does.

Just another angle of my henna. I had her extend the flower vine onto my pointer finger. Glitter matches my nails. LOL ><

Cute Dragon Fly. The weirdest thing happened after she drew this. I’m not kidding when I say that a dragonfly flew right by me. Curious. o.O

After the henna ink peels off. This is what it looks like more or less. I took this picture right after the ink peeled off so the henna is not at it’s darkest. It usually takes a day or two for the henna to get as dark as possible.

My friends got hennas too. She got a Day of the Dead Skull with the Chinese symbol for strength above.

Day of the Dead Skull with intricate designs around it. Just amazing.

Koi Fish henna. Believe it or not. The lady had never done a Koi Henna before. You have to admit she is pretty damn good.

Time for lunch!!! >0< We decided on Indian.

I don’t know why, but I have always been under the impression that curry is really spicy. I am not really a spicy food person, so I was a little skeptical. However, this was not spicy at all. It was actually one of the most delicious things I have eaten in a long time. Curry is now one of my must eats. Try Indian curry if you haven’t. You will not regret it. SOOOO GOOD!!!! (*´▽`*)

Nan or flat bread. YUM!

I can’t resist anything with mango. Mango Lemonade was a must! ><

That’s all I have for now. Thanks for reading. Have a great weekend!

Much Love As Always,

Meebs

Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder

4 Dec

Hello Meebsies,

I have been really conflicted lately about an issue that I pass by everyday. Many people know the saying beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  It is what makes us unique individuals. Even if we may not agree with someones’ idea of beauty, we can respect their opinion. If you think about it, in the end everything is beautiful. You are beautiful no matter what someone may say. ^_^

I just never thought that I this concept would conflict with my moral beliefs. If anything, this should help me justify my moral beliefs. I have recently been asked to participate in a volunteer activity involving painting over graffiti on local building. I personally have always seen graffiti as art. I myself can not do the amazing things that graffiti artist are able to do. Not to mention in such little time and with so much pressure. Whenever I drive by graffiti I can’t help but to stuck by awe. On the other hand, many of the graffiti painting are illegally on building and basically breaking the law. The belief that the organizers of this volunteer group have is that, the law is an important factor in maintaining a safe society. Plus ultimately, the building owners have a right to choose what goes on their walls and what does not. I also want to respect the choice of the building owners because in their eyes, graffiti is not beauty.

I just do not know if I have the heart to paint over something like this. I mean all that effort, all those vibrant color of expression covered by a dull sandy beige. What should I do? What would you do?

Love XOXO

Meebs
