Halloween is Almost Near!

Halloween is so close! The best parts of October are the days leading up to Halloween and the day of itself. As soon as it’s over, we get into the holiday spirits of Thanksgiving and waiting for Christmas.

Well October has to be one of my favorite months! The scary adventures and haunted houses make you want to encounter a ghost, but you’ll run if you even hear or see something move that shouldn’t.

There’s something about the Halloween spirit everyone loves nowadays. Whether it’s dressing up like something you’re not, all the candy and cavities, or just going out and having fun. Although girls never seem to understand the whole “dress like something you’re not” because they always end up dressing like a slut for Halloween anyway and try to get away with a “sexy” cat costume. We get it, you’re hot. Try a zombie or something. (And of course there’s a “sexy” zombie costume).

 

Halloween is meant for scary and gruesome ideas. People like me, love gore. (Fake gore…I cringe at the sight of real blood.) The fake blood with the fake skin and the SFX makeup. That’s what you call the power of makeup!

During the regular days, girls love makeup yo look pretty. Then comes Halloween where we take all our makeup and basically just put everything on at once. Splatter the fake blood on top for a more realistic effect. Makeup definitely has some magical powers all year round.

 

Well with that said, here is a video with both gore and decency. A broken doll where someone can still look pretty with a little blood on her face.

The After Lives of College Graduates

For all those who had just graduated college, what exactly are your life goals?

For most of my life, all my time spent whether it was going to school, or coming home to do school work, and even working, was somehow related to an education field. Even my recent new job, as well as my previous one, was in higher education. Though now, I don’t have to deal with students directly, which I thank God for; I’m on an actual campus this time instead of sitting in a closed office space with a table that’s 3 ft x 3 ft and no leg space whatsoever.

Now that I have a new job, what exactly am I doing with my life? I hear stories about college graduates all living their life before they actually settle down with their career and others who have the job they wanted after college graduation and already set towards a career goal. Is that really worth it?

 

It might be.

 

They say you need a bucket list that you need to complete before you die. But how many people actually create one and how many complete the tasks? I believe everyone should have more than just one bucket list. One list of things they want to do or do before college graduation, like attend a college party (without getting belligerently drunk) or study abroad. A list for after college graduation and before getting a real job. A list before getting married, and of course one after you’re married so you can complete the tasks with your partner. This way, you’re doing a little of everything and you wont have the FOMO in life.

 

But what exactly do people want to carry out before they reach their goals of graduating college and before getting married and getting a job. Because once you have a job, your freedom has a limit to what you can actually do with your life outside of your job. You may want to travel the world but without money you can’t and without a job you wont have money. Do you save that for later? Or you can do it while having a job. But that means either mini weekend vacations, or one long one per year. All your time is mostly spent at work. After you’re married, all your time will be going to your/their family.

So when do you really have the ‘time’ to go on a vacation on the other side of the world? To share the beautiful sights you see when you’re going on a road trip across the country? To meet new people and make new friends? To just relax and give time to yourself? When will you ever get around to even create a bucket list, let alone complete the ideas you have on there?

Time is really valuable. If you waste it, there’s no getting it back.

 

What’s on your bucket list?

Arrange Marriage, or Love?

Ideally, what does one think about marriage?Indian Marriage

So, as we get older, we have responsibilities to take care of and we all want to, at a certain point of course settle down. But how do we choose who to spend the rest of our lives with?

Well, if you’re Desi/brown, and a girl, then you will definitely know what I’m going for. As for you guys, at least you have a little time on your hands in this matter. Girls need to get married like ASAP!

Girls aren’t supposed to marry at 30 like Americans. After you pass a certain age, YOU HAVE TO START LOOKING FOR SOMEONE! And if you don’t find someone to marry before you’re 30, you’re most likely never going to get married. Apparently no one likes 30 year old’s!

Me?:

I’m only 22. Didn’t even graduate college (yes, I do intend to!), and I’ve already got thrown under the “find someone to marry” bus. Although there are some people I know who already got married at the age or 22, even younger, I’m not one of them. Not that I can’t find someone (well..kinda mostly that), but because my mentality isn’t like others. I don’t care much for settling down; YET at least. There are other things that need to be done before I even start joining one of those dating websites.

Everyone should definitely have a pre-marriage bucket list!

But what irks me the most is when your parents start looking! Like okay, yes they always know the best for you, but they don’t really know the other person they’re choosing for you. They could do all the background checks they want, find out their family history, check their bank account, or even find out their blood type, but it won’t be enough until you actually get to know the person.

Now that’s arrange marriage. Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against it, and honestly, I wouldn’t even mind it. Arrange marriage is like an adventure. You start off fresh some someone new. But do you really wanna spend the rest of your life with them? How do you know they’re worth it? All that money being spent on the wedding could go to a nice vacation in the Bahamas. It’s simple, you don’t know if it’s worth it! More like a trial and error sort, you just don’t get that many re-do’s. But with arrange marriage, you get to learn to love the person. Just like how you don’t choose your parents or siblings, you learn to love them and spend your life with them, well not your whole life, but most of it.

As for love marriage, you know your other’s strengths and weaknesses, likes and dislikes, and you can tolerate the other person without killing them. (Some more than others.)

The positive side of love marriage; you already love that person. And you can always find something new about them everyday. Like when you sleep with them the first time (like literally SLEEP!) Or what it’s like to actually live with this person, if you haven’t already. The possibilities of finding new things about the other person is always endless. There will be some things you hate. Then other things that just make you fall in love all over again. Make every date feel like the first date. They accept you for you. Love should be unconditional.

As for the negative, you may start to get tired of the same thing. And the thought of spending the rest of your life with that person is, scary.

But who really decides what’s right?

Here’s a con about arrange marriages; what if you don’t even get to see the person you’re going to marry till the wedding is over?! Yeah, that would probably suck! But what if they just turns out to be utterly horrible and it ends in divorce because you two were not compatible enough to spend the rest of your lives together? What if they use your past against you? What if they just don’t accept you? But then again, what if they’re just perfect for you? What if they’re “The One“??? Ah, the joys of marrying someone you knew for a month.

They say everything is written. How much do you believe in fate?

Well, all I can say now is, let the adventure begin. Arrange marriage it is. (I can already feel the regrets.)

Makeup!

Nowadays, most girls are experimenting with makeup. Some put way too much, others, not enough. When we need to learn something new, of course we go on YouTube and search for new videos to help us, change our style. Well, here’s a simple makeup tutorial for a faded smokey eye. Hopefully this helps those who have struggled to do smokey eyes. If you want to start light, this faded version will help you slowly work towards a bolder smokey eye look. Enjoy!

Religious or Nonreligious? Muslim girls nowadays..

 

Its great when a Muslim girl starts wearing a hijab after years of being non religious, but as soon as a girl takes off her hijab and becomes “Americanized” with the short shorts and drinks in her hand, that’s when i lose respect.

I’ve seen many girls nowadays, who USED to wear hijabs. Now that they are in college they forget their religion. Hijabs gone, and the short dresses are out.

Its one thing when a girl actually starts becoming religious, and gets attached to her religion. But how do you forget it later?

Taking off the hijabs for some occasions are actually okay. But taking them off, to party and drink, which is both haram, and a disgrace.

If you wear one, and you want to party and drink, don’t pretend to wear one, and take it off as soon as the party starts. Put the drink down, put on some clothes that cover your body, and walk away.

Although, those who choose not to follow the path of Islam anymore, don’t follow it, but don’t go back to being religious when you turned your back on it the first time. Just saying.

Girls vs. Girls ; Makeup vs. Guys

Guys always complain about how they hate when a girl wears makeup. Yet they always go after the ones that look the prettiest.

Fake hair, fake nails, fake eyelashes, and she’ll swear its “natural”. LOL

 
Guys say they love the natural look, but they would never look at a girl who looks “not attractive” without makeup. Yea, that’s logic. Although there are a few guys who go for the personality, applaud to them.

But face it, it’s not about the makeup at all, it’s about who looks prettier. If a girl is naturally flawless, then lucky her. If not, then hello concealer!!

So guys want a natural girl? Without makeup? What if she has scars on her face, that she’s forced to hide WITH makeup? What if she wears it to hide her flaws? If a girl has scars, and obviously no guy even pays attention to her, she’s going to wear makeup. Insecurities. Every girl has them. And its cause of guys a girl is insecure. Don’t get me wrong, of course we don’t call attention upon ourselves, but having a compliment here and there does make our day.

Fact #1: Some of us wear makeup, not to get attention, to help us feel CONFIDENT about ourselves. 

 

Let’s pretend: A guy goes out, normal day,
