WSC Vietnam (Day 2)

It’s not technically day 2 yet, because it’s the same day and all, but deal with it.

Hello, people of the internet!

I have been surviving on 20 minutes of sleep for around 30 hours? I kept randomly slipping into a daze between real life and dreamland. It was kind of unnerving, but I think that I slightly enjoyed it? Except not really because I had such awesome dreams that ended abruptly on cliffhangers. (Aris’ brain: rickrolling viewers since 2004.)

Currently it’s 9pm and I’m alone in our hotel room, frantically writing this post. I’m supposed to be sleeping.

A trip to Vietnam + random stuff

If you couldn’t tell from the header and title, I’m on a trip to Vietnam. Currently I’m at the Delhi airport, and from here we’re going to Bangkok, then Hanoi. The big question: what the hell am I doing here?

So remember that post from wayyy back in February when I said I was doing this competition thingy called the World Scholar’s Cup? Weellllll, we’re sort of going for the global round of this competition, which is held in Hanoi, Vietnam. I’m gonna be super busy for around 4 days, but I’ll still post a little something everyday – just a rundown of the events of the day. I mean you guys probably won’t be interested but this blog is like my journal – I love writing down everything I’ve done as a momento?? Is that weird???

Why fanfiction is great

no, fanfiction is not just 11-year-olds writing bad smut

Hello, people of the internet!

If you’re a millennial, and part of a fandom, you’ve probably read – or at least glanced at – some fanfiction. But lots of people dismiss it as plagiarism and meaningless, explicit, smut. While there might be some sexual content in a few fanfictions, that is not the only thing there is and the whole community shouldn’t be judged based on them. There are so many beautifully written fanfictions that are about the feelings, the psychological profiles, and chaste relationships of characters. I’ve come up with a list of reasons why fanfiction is not a joke, but a revolution.

HELP! // i am so confused.

Hello, people of the internet!

This isn’t really a blog post, it’s more of a cry for help. I’m going through major aesthetics crisis. I’m stuck between keeping this theme and changing to another **classier** one.

While I love this theme and all of it’s cuteness and blueness (?), the widgets are really annoying and hard to manage – whenever I add pictures, it ends up looking really bad. I found another theme – that’s apparently quite popular amongst bloggers? – in which the widgets look awesome, and on a whole it just looks really neat and clean. So, I guess what I’m asking is: do I switch to a newer and neater theme, or do I stick with this one and keep my branding?

Review – Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Chat Noir

okay i know this post is late but it was my grandma’s funeral so

Hi internet people!

Another reason I didn’t post was because I was too busy binge-watching TV shows. One TV show in particular. Maybe you’ve heard of it; it was Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Chat Noir.

(epic name, no?)

So here’s an unbiased and completely honest (I’m not being sarcastic) review of the show.

this gif has nothing to do with anything but it’s funny
