I’m at The Terminal, also Stop Clubbing Baby Seals maybe?

Hi again!

I’m at the terminal and we board in a little over 2 hours.

I just felt a need to get this off my chest.

I saw a post on twitter that was basically saying “the seal hunt is bad” and everyone in the replies is defending the seal hunt???

Maybe I’m the *sshole, but I see no logical defense?

Most of the defenses center around “well seal meat is Inuit culture”…

.

.

.

So??????????????????

I really wanted to put the “then perish” meme in the replies but I feel like I’d get dragged through the mud so I’m gonna talk about it on my own special platform. So hahaha if anyone wants to drag me through the mud you’ll have to give me page views first.

I hate when people defend unethical actions with a guise of culture.

Who cares about your culture if you’re using it to ruin the lives of other beings?

Female genital mutilation is wrong.

Slavery is wrong.

Bashing in the heads of seals is wrong.

Poaching rhinos is wrong.

This should not be a hot take!!!

I sometimes hate associating myself with liberals because we’re so scared of offending people that we excuse atrocities. I feel like is some of the twitter leftists were alive in 1943 they’d figure out a way to say the h*locaust is ok because it’s german culture or something.

I can’t even count the number of times I’ve seen half baked hot takes about how people in food deserts need McDonalds as a source of calories… Maybe we can try to put grocery stores in those areas? Maybe we could try to make healthy food more accessible? Maybe think before you spout nonsense?

If the suggestion that you don’t do evil things is offensive, maybe you’re a sh*tty person!

Yes, the anti seal hunt activism should have more nuance and we should try to give people better options to replace murdered babies but that doesn’t mean it’s okay to club a seal to death! Are you people stupid!?

Ugh, I need to unfollow these whiny dummies or else I’m gonna go into cardiac arrest.

So now is my time.

If you think the seal hunt is a good thing:

I’m A Walking Fever Dream

Welp.

I have a fever.

I think I’ve written a post while I had a fever before, right?

Who am I kidding, none of you would be able to recall something so specific.

I have a morbid fascination with fevers and illness in general.

I think it’s because I used to hang out at the hospital a lot when I was a little kid. For a while when my mom worked nights and I was too young to be alone, she would find an empty hospital room and I’d sleep at the hospital then she’d drop me off at school the next morning. I always really liked the hospital. I like how the beds are adjustable, and the color of the lights, and that the bathroom was connected to the room, and how hospitals smell. I don’t know how to explain the hospital scent. It’s just nice I guess.

I still really like visiting the hospital when my mom has to do some sort of errand up there.

I like to look at those “medicalcore” pictures on tumblr quite a bit. In fact I’m pretty sure my most popular post on tumblr is a picture of the wall in the ER room I stayed in when I got pneumonia. I still get a handful of likes on it every week and it’s over 4 months old.

It’s cool to have a log of your thoughts that you can go back to whenever you feel like it. Sometimes I’ll be feeling/doing something and the first thing that comes to mind is how great of a blog post this could be.

That’s what led to me writing right now.

I feel completely delirious, and I can imagine that anything I write right now could potentially be entertaining.

I always describe things as “feeling like a fever dream” and right now, my existence feels like a fever dream.

I think I may have more than an infection. I never get fevers when I have a sinus infection.

Whatever, hopefully the antibiotics take care of it.

 

 

Haha.

I just thought of this gif I saved.

Take a look at it.

God, my sense of humor is ridiculous.

I’m gonna end this entry now.

on break

I’m blogging at work right now so this post probably won’t be my best work but whatever.

You know how I told you about that girl that used to work at my store who came in and made a scene?

She came in again today…

uuuuuuuuuuUUUUUUUUUUGH

Did she not get the hint?

But luckily she was only in the store for like 40 minutes this time and she didn’t take it upon herself to tell us how to run the store.

So on a less annoying note- well actually this annoys me too- I did my paperwork for student loans and such the other day. I’m preparing for my orientation which is in a little over a week.

Not super enthusiastic.

But what’s new?

Here’s a question:

Am I getting boring?

It feels like for the past months and a half my blog posts have been really low effort and pretty un-captivating.

I remember my September posts were so good! I want to write like that again!

I think that’s what I’m gonna really focus on for a while: making good content.

I seem to make these types of goals like 3 times a week though so who knows.

I’m gonna go now so i can do other stuff on my break.

Planning, Twitch, and Gummy Bear Earrings

Today I feel like I have quite a bit more to write about compared to yesterday.

I spent a lot of time bullet journaling and planning over the course of last night and this morning and I feel like I have my whole life together.

OK, not necessarily my whole life, but I feel more put together than normal.

I’m trying to not give myself too many goals that depend on others (i.e blog views, subscribers) but I’ve been setting a lot of goals.

I’ve also been budgeting quite a bit and I made some little savings goal doodads on paypal for the various expensive things I’m saving up for.

I took some advice from the comments on my Focusing on My Finances post for my new budgeting technique.

I’ve made specific paypal goals for even frivolous things like obsessive ebay purchases and Lirika Matoshi socks, alongside more long term and rational goals of course.

I don’t think those items are frivolous though…

I’ve also made some hand written business cards for myself to hand out when I meet new people at those college “this is what college is” events and whenever I get too close to someone in real life upon first meeting (happens too often).


I’ve developed a new love of live streaming.

I’ve been livestreaming a few of my study sessions and bullet journaling moments, and I really love being able to talk to people in a live chat.

I made a twitch account because I’ve heard it’s easier to find talkative people on twitch than on youtube where I’ve done my past streams.

I think twitch is pretty cool.

I wrote it off at first because it’s mostly known for video game streams and I have no interest in watching someone play Player Unknown Battlegrounds, but I found out the other day that you can kinda do whatever you want on there (aside from nudity and lewd behavior of course). Also Jenna Marbles and Julien Solomita spend a lot of time on there and Jenna is one of my biggest inspirations so it would be sacrilege for me to not at least watch her twitch streams.

I think I’ll be doing my future study streams on twitch.

If you wanna follow me on there here’s my link: twitch.tv/dearmikah


I’m hopefully getting an exciting package in the mail today!

I ordered some stuff from PeachesandParfait on etsy and I’ve been eagerly awaiting the arrival of my order.

This may sound odd, but I’ve always wanted earrings that look like gummy bears…

AND THEY SELL THEM so of course I had to get a pair (alongside some other things…)

If the ones I ordered are nice I’m gonna buy them in every color.

There’s something that’s the perfect amount of kitshcy about gummy bears. I feel like other similar candies like gummy worms lean younger while having no candy themed things in your life screams “boring”.

So I’m super excited about my gummy bear earrings (I also got some gummy bear charms to put on everything).


I’m gonna start training for my manager position at work soon.

I’m excited!

I got to do a few managerial things at work yesterday and it was nice. I got to do a lot of non-division math and I quite enjoyed that.

Something people don’t know about me/ expect of me is that I really like math. When I was in geometry I never got below a 97 on a report card and fractions have always been very easy and almost come second nature for me.


Ok, I’m gonna end this post here.

Thank you for reading!

Untitled Post 3

I have writers block again. I’m a very lucky person in that I don’t tend to have month long writers block or even week long writers block normally. It tends to last maybe 5 days at most. Yesterday I hoped to get out a post but it was just not happening. I counted and I tried 9 whole times to start a post and each time I would write a sentence and then feel like it wasn’t working. I considered just putting up one of my drafts but that felt a little disingenuous.

I guess I’ll talk about an interesting thing that happened today,

A guy offered me 70 dollars for pictures of my feet.

I occasionally get messages and emails along these lines but this is the largest monetary offer I’ve ever received.

It was very tempting to just send my paypal link to him but I just don’t think the foot photo life is for me. I’m not against other people doing it but I’m really young and I have a very valid fear of things I do being brought up against me in the future.

Would you have said yes?

I don’t want to discourage people from trying to talk to me though. I appreciate the emails and comments I get from you guys a lot!

I actually wish more readers would send me emails and leave comments! I try my best to respond to everyone and I really feel fulfilled when I get them. I love talking to you guys!

People on tumblr are a different breed though. They’re very complimentary but they can prod a bit. Not awful though (except the perverts).

Would you guys be ok if I started posting really short posts on days when I’m uninspired? It feels like I’m dragging this post on.

I guess as a thank you for reading this I’ll give y’all a photo:

maddie and I both moved right when the camera went off so we’re both blurry

Bye!

My Favorite Weather and Other Stuff

I’m very happy today because the weather is exactly to my liking.

I’m very strongly affected by the weather when it comes to my mood and if the weather is in my opinion bad, I’m less motivated, less enthusiastic, harder to excite, and more sedentary.

So what constitutes good weather to me?

  • clouds
  • rain
  • cold temperatures (even though it never gets truly cold where I live)
  • snow is my ultimate favorite but again, it only snows like every other year
  • dark skies
  • when the grass looks technicolor bright
  • petrichor scent
  • the general season of winter

I’ve always wondered if I may have seasonal affective disorder (or whatever it’s called) but I’m depressed in summer rather than winter.

I’m so excited that summer is ending!

I sometimes wish I was born in winter so I could have a real birthday celebration. In summer everyone is busy going on vacation and doing summer stuff that it feels like I’d be inconveniencing my friends if I invited them to celebrate my birthday with me, so for the past like 4-5 years I haven’t tried to do anything for my birthday.

Next year I think I’m gonna try to throw myself a birthday party for the first time in my life. Don’t get confused and think I’ve never had a birthday party: I’ve had a few. I’ve just never thrown one for myself.

It’s on my bucket list to have a real birthday party and I think if I start planning early I’ll be over the anxiety in time for next August.

That sounds crazy when I read it.

Ugh! Poptart just pissed on my thigh high boots 😦

I semi-dried them, I’ll clean them off after posting this.

I thought this would be a good substantial post about weather but honestly I wanna write about other things in my life right now.

My mom got me a gift that makes me really happy yesterday.

The back says “Love always, Marshmallow”

I wish Mel was still here. We should be getting his ashes soon and I’m hoping to be finished with the scrapbook page I’m making before we get them.

The page is red and white themed because I’m 90% sure his favorite color was red. All his favorite foods and toys were red so I’m just drawing conclusions but I like to give traits like that to all of my pets. Sometimes people cringe when I say things about my pets favorite colors and songs but I can really see how certain stimuli change their demeanor! Like Poptart loves older VIXX songs while Peanut likes City and Color. I’m sorry for these people that they don’t connect with animals the way I do.

I need to get some pictures of Marshmallow printed because I need them for my memorial and to frame. He was so pretty.

I can’t wait to live my dream of having a small house near the mountains with a herd of chianina cattle on the property and a ton of rabbits in the house. I think to memorialize Mel I’m gonna name all my future rabbits M names. I already have Marzipan, Mochi, Mango, and Mellocreme chosen. I’d prefer they all be food names but it’s tough to come up with M food names for rabbits. I like giving all of my pets fun names. It kinda creeps me out when people have dogs named Bill.

I always wished I was named Cinnamon when I was a kid (my club penguin name was cinnamoncyrus because I loved the name Cinnamon and Miley Cyrus). When/ if I have kids of my own loins (I already have names chosen) I want them to all have interesting names. Not if  they’re adopted, I wouldn’t force a kid to change their name to fit my theme of anything.

I also went by Krystal and Venus for short periods of my childhood. I wish I started liking my name at a younger age. I really like it now because it’s pretty unique and people think it’s cool. When I was a kid though, teachers would always think I was a boy before meeting me and kids made so many jokes about my name. I think it’s kinda cool that people think Mikah is a stage name. I really get messages on tumblr and emails asking if it’s my real name. It is! I’ll add that to my FAQ. 

Maybe some day Mikah will be a name like Beyonce where people name their kids that and then their kid feels like they have to live up to their name (I know a few younger girls [born around 2004] named Beyonce and they feel like they live in a shadow).

Fingers crossed!

Thanks for reading!

Women Can Date Who They Want, I Shouldn’t Have To Say That!

I have to work another 9 and a half hour shift today…!

I’m not excited!

I definitely need to post before going to work because I know 100% that I’m gonna feel awful after working!

yay

Let’s write a post that matters today, because the past few posts have been in my opinion hot garbage.

I saw a post on twitter today that kind of lambasted women for having aesthetic preferences in romantic partners today and it pissed me off a little.

It was basically stating that if your main trait you look for in a partner is intelligence, you can’t have any preferences when it comes to looks because you’ll chase away the actually smart people.

dude, what?

Is it impossible for smart people to look good and this is just my first time hearing about it?

Are we really doing this?

Is this a conversation we need to have?

Well people are having it so I guess that’s what we’re doing now.

OK, I really need to start getting ready so I’m gonna try to get my point across in as concise of a way as possible.

  1. not all smart people are ugly? I thought we knew that?
  2. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to date handsome men
  3. I’m not sure intelligence should be the number one thing you llok for i a romantic partner. What about compatibility? Why aren’t we making that observation?
  4. Being picky can be a good thing because it doesn’t mean you have to wade through the waters of people who are absolutely not your type.
  5. Why do we only have this conversation when it comes to women’s aesthetic preferences? What about all the men who write disgusting things about women with “flaws” as small as stretch marks? Why can’t we write 11 tweet long threads about them?
  6. (I didn’t mention this earlier but the thread also criticised hypergamy.) Who cares if a woman wants to date a rich man? If you aren’t rich it doesn’t affect you!

Ugh, I spent too much time getting distracted in the middle of writing this and it ended up just as bad as my other posts.

I guess we’ll just have to wait for anything good to come out of me for another day.

Bye for now, wish me luck for my 9 1/2 hour shift.
