The Art of A Letter

Mostly, people send an email, a facebook notification(or poke) or some other social media to write things to each other. However, the letter business seems to be near nonexistent other than the need to pay bill and other not so much fun stuff. I recently sent out party invitations through the mail and even if it took more work and resources to do so that way, it was different from the norm. I’m not talking about the gala invitations. Those are still common, but a good old fashion party for you and some friends. Personally, whenever I get mail that isn’t something about a payement due or some politician running for a position I become happy to know that someone took the time to write something to me. I was curious about what kind of things you can do with a letter so here are some ideas for your next special piece of mail you send out.

Cartoon about World History!

This cartoon/anime is a series about personified countries and the trials they face as they live through important moments in history. Though it may sound offensive to some many, it has great history lessons in an entertaining way. The show mixes together all the stereotypes of all different races to create information that will actually stick rather than trying to stay awake will reading a bland history book.

 

Picture Rehablitation

So if you have read my previous post on my vacation to Mexico you read about the calmness  I encountered while there; which resulted in some interesting writing. But really, everyone needs to have those occasional zen writing moments. We would just become a huge list of drab writing of essays, memos and boring papers. I guess my writing did sound like I was possibly drinking too much unfiltered water or maybe accepting brownies from strangers, but that it fine with me. (P.S neither of those happened in case you were concerned.)

Anyhow, I was looking through the pictures I took  my mom/sister took and created a new beautiful one, if I do say so myself. SEE THE TRANSFORMATION!!!!

A Peaceful Vacation

Staring out a glass corner of a house as I watch the waves crash onto the beach below. The tips of jagged rocks poke in and out of view as the water recedes from the land and right back up like a constant game of tag between the land and sea. I sip my hot chocolate, so different from the one back home. Flavored with various seasonings. Let’s not forget the cayenne pepper that begins to creep its way down my throat. The calm atmosphere ebbs in and out as conversation is struck then put to rest when silence falls as the climax of a card game ends. The small sounds sounds seem to make more of an impact. The rustle of a page turning, the murmer spanish radio, the muted sound of a knife hitting a cutting board all seem to add up to make a symphony of  peace.

Here’s the view I have been waking up to every morning for the past 4 days!

Clothing Drive!!!

So I and some friends have created a clothing drive to benefit an organization called Stand Up For Kids and all the clothes we collect will be going to homeless teens. We sincerely hope that these clothes get to them before it gets any colder. Please help us out by dropping off your lightly used clothes at the Fairbanks Village Plaza November 17 from 11-2. If you are able, I hope to see you there! Plus, you get a free cupcake from our local partners, Cupcake Love!!!! Come drop off! 

Disgustingly Funny/Cute Games

So I have recently been introduced to some curious games that only a select few individuals could develop. One of these games is known as Happy Poo Jump. Before I continue, think about that name. If you haven’t seen this or had the delight of your little sister excitedly showing you this game, then take a stab at what it might be. Got it? Then proceed to let your eyes wander to the picture below.

This game is surprisingly entertaining. But that’s not all! They also have a game with the same poo character and you have to “shine” the poo. Polish it with your finger and your poo becomes as shiny as bad chinese food.

Definitely. Especially the Pinkberry comment. 😉

The Plaid Bag Connection

“Comedy” writer Teresa Hsiao (on the staff of the show Family Guy) wrote a article entitled “A White Man’s Guide to Dating Asian Girls” for the Huffington Post. Thank goodness missed when it was published last month. It’s really, really unfunny. Here, I mean unfunny as in “not funny,” not as in “offensive.” Take a look:

STEP ONE: Finding an Asian

Asian girls typically hang out at one of three places: the mall, the library, or Pinkberry. When you get there, look around: the best Asian girl to pick up will be the one wearing a hoodie and heels (there is always one). When you approach her, ask for the time. As she takes out her phone to tell you, you should make a nice comment about her phone flair (Asian girls always have some bedazzled jank hanging off our phones, usually a cartoon duck or a jade tiger). And with…
