Shopaholic gets a fright๐Ÿ’€

Hello Loves โฃ๏ธ

Today I’m going to tell you a story, a freaky story and a true story ๐Ÿ˜ˆ. So last night I went to bed pretty late ( I’m on vacation don’t judge me ๐Ÿ˜ฌ).

Before I go to bed I usually keep a bottle of water  ๐Ÿ’ฆon my nightstand since my mouth gets very dry in the middle of the night. And since I watch way too many horror movies ๐ŸŽฅ there is no way I’m going out in the middle of the night to become the easy, unsuspecting prey to a psychopath serial killer, a vengeful spirit or restless ghoul.

Getting back to our tale of terror ๐Ÿ’€, I woke up around 4 am, groped about in the dark for my water ๐Ÿ’ฆ bottle which I found under the bed empty ๐Ÿ˜กthanks to the plethora of forever thirsty nieces sleeping over ๐Ÿ˜ด.
Since I couldn’t go back to sleep with a parched throat ๐Ÿ‚and the nieces were sleeping even more deeply than Snow White and Sleeping beauty๐Ÿ‘‘ combined. I braced myself to tackle the impending task alone and after peeping around the door for potential death traps  ๐ŸŒ‘ tip toed gingerly into the living room. 

It’s a mystery to me how my eyes ๐Ÿ‘€ even with their pathetic vision suddenly start seeing all sorts of unworldly objects and paranormal activity โ˜ ๏ธ in pitch black darkness. Harmless shadows resemble ominous ๐Ÿ‘ปfigures, mundane sounds like the clock ticking sound like echoing ๐Ÿ‘ฃfootsteps you get the idea….

I hurriedly refilled my bottle willing my mind not to rerun through every single horror movie I had watched. As I made my way across the living room I happened to glance at the window and I literally jumped out of my skin. There pressed against the window was the silhouette of a giant cat sitting perfectly still staring off into the distance. This on a night that was the background of a typical Hollywood horror flick complete with a thunderstorm โšก๏ธand pouring rain outside. โ›ˆ

If that wasn’t enough to petrify me the cat that had been stationary till then decided to swivel its head and stare straight at me. The sight of two fluorescent slits in a pitch black  room was the last straw I stifled a blood curling scream that was about to explode from me (the last time I had screamed at that sight of a stray cat in my supposedly dark and empty bedroom had resulted in dire consequences : brown people read your mom’s chappal ๐Ÿ‘ก). 

I willed my legs to move which at the first instance of terror turn into two solid pillars of lead incapable of movement. The cat meanwhile was content to sit on its perch and stare at me with those creepy glowing eyes. I finally dragged myself to my room double bolted the door ๐Ÿšช dived under the covers and pulled the blanket over my head  frantically reciting every prayer I could recall. 

I want to ask at this point โ˜๏ธ why when we are feeling the most terrified do we think that a lifeless piece of fabric aka the blanket or duvet can provide us the ultimate protection against ghosts, ๐Ÿ‘ปghouls, ๐Ÿ’€or knife wielding murderers๐Ÿ”ชโ“

Plus no matter how hard you try to think ๐Ÿ’ญ innocent thoughts your mind will determinedly conjure up the things that terrify ๐Ÿ’€you the most. Long story short despite the fact that I was sleeping in a room literally littered with nieces sleeping on every available space we could fit a mattress in. I stayed up till sunrise cowering under my blanket, terrified I was going to be attacked by a possesed cat that would apparate into my room and change into a something from a James Wan movie ๐Ÿ˜ฑ I think I only dozed off ๐Ÿ˜ดwhen I saw the sun โ˜€๏ธ shining through the curtains. ๐Ÿ˜– 

Have you guys ever had one of those nights when you were scared and couldn’t sleep? Let me know in the comments ๐Ÿ˜˜

๐Ÿ’”Shopaholic Rant: Unfriending people on Facebook ๐Ÿ’”

๐Ÿ’”Genuine relationships require a great deal of time, energy,commitment and emotional investment.

๐Ÿ’”For this reason I have always been utterly bemused by the sheer no of friends people claim to have these days, esp since the widespread usage of social media. Almost every person’s profile I have clicked on in the last few months has a had friend count of over 500 ๐Ÿ˜ณ.

๐Ÿ’”With an average school having between 400-500 students thats like being friends with every single person in school !๐Ÿ˜ฑ

๐Ÿ’” I mean even at weddings the maximum guests you have if you are Caucasian ๐Ÿ‘ฑ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธis 50-250, or if you are brown ๐Ÿ™Ž๐Ÿปis between 200-400 and that includes the entire odd assortment of relatives and colleagues, friends of your parents, their extended families etc. So where exactly are these 500+ “friends” ? I’ve personally never seen anyone at one time hanging out with 500 close friends have you? I mean even in the cult favorite show “Friends” there were only 5.

๐Ÿ’”Have we redefined friendship to include any person with a social media account to have free access to our personal life? Or has the numbers game taken over relationships as well in this day and age?

๐Ÿ’”I personally find the idea of someone I barely know, have access to all my social media just plain odd and awkward. I’ll give you an example, recently  I stumbled upon a middle school classmate after almost 10+ years through a common friend. Even though we were never more than polite acquaintances back in school immediately she requested to befriend me on social media. Since she had already whipped her phone out and was looking at me expectantly, it seemed rude not to comply. A couple of weeks later however since I didn’t hear a single peep from her, I ceremoniously unfriended her off all my social media accounts. ๐Ÿ˜•.

๐Ÿ’”Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a mean, hateful person ( well not all the time ๐Ÿ˜‹) and I love the idea of making new friends. But here’s what I don’t get: befriending someone on social media only to ignore them in real life? Picture this I went to the movies ๐ŸŽฌwith a “friend” and the entire time we were there she was busy liking pics on Instagram and commenting on Facebook. ๐Ÿ˜ก The whole point of going to the movies with friends is to laugh together and comment on the funny and interesting bits. I honestly was pissed off and left wondering why she had bothered to come at all.

๐Ÿ’”Secondly why would you want divulge all your life details to someone you just met( let’s face facts people from what we are eating and drinking, to what we are wearing to who we are with and where we put in all on social media). 

๐Ÿ’”Finally why would you want to have someone who you have zero interest in past the intial friend request, have all of their crap show up on your newsfeed? I mean it’s frustrating enough to have to deal with insufferable people in real life,  but to have them irritate you online as well? I’ve frankly got no tolerance for the selfie queens, attention seeking status posters, repeated game request senders,or people who just want to add and forget you…๐Ÿ˜’.

๐Ÿ’”Why not just unfollow them you ask? Well I’ve done that but that still lets them look at my stuff whenever they choose to and I’m not in the habit of putting up a zillion different privacy settings everytime I post. Plus everytime I happen to look over my friends list and see a name that i haven’t had any sort of contact with in ages it makes me wonder what on earth are they still doing on my friends list?๐Ÿค”

๐Ÿ’”I mean the last time I checked Facebook wasn’t a dupe for the yellow pages ๐Ÿ“’.

๐Ÿ’”To be honest I feel much better after I spring cleaned my social media contact list. It may have dwindled my friend count but atleast the ones left are the ones that matter. How do you clean up your social media let me know here ๐Ÿ˜˜

Until next time loves xoxo๐Ÿ’‹

Shopaholic rant : I’m bored ๐Ÿ˜ซ

Alright guys it happens we’ve all been there when you are just so bored out of your mind๐Ÿ˜– you are actually googling “I’m so bored I wish I had a life” ๐Ÿ˜ณ. Yes I’ve been there done that and I’m sure you have too ๐Ÿ˜‰

It’s not that you don’t have stuff to do, I mean there are always chores ( just ask your mom๐Ÿ˜). 

It’s not that you don’t have any friends, they are all there it’s just that they are probably busy or they are just as bored as you are . I actually remember a phone conversation with my bff back in school where we both talked ๐Ÿ“žfor an hour about how bored we both were and how there was nothing to do๐Ÿ˜‚. 

For me boredom usually sets in during vacations๐Ÿ˜ฑ. I know! I wait for vacations all year because usually schoolwork and chores keep me busy and cranky and I look forward to finally having two months of vacations ahead of meโœจ. But honestly a week into vacations I start wondering what to do with myself. I mean usually during study time resisting myself from obsessively checking Facebook is a torture. Come vacations I barely log onto Facebook more than a couple of times a day๐Ÿ˜ณ

I mean seriously this summer vacations my sisters and I were together all the time and all we did was to sit and stare zombie like at our phone screens. 

I mean is it just me who feels this way or does everyone get bored out of their minds every once in a while. I mean obviously no one wants to admit it I suppose because it means inadvertently admitting you don’t have a life๐Ÿ˜ช

And I’m sorry but Google is no help here I mean here are some of the boredom busters I came across online:

1- Watch a ๐Ÿ“ฝmovie – with 60 days plus of    vacation time to kill that equals being a total couch potato and who on earth can come up with a list that long? Plus if you are planning on hitting the movie theater that often that’s a whole lotta moola๐Ÿ’ธ

2-Go ๐Ÿ›shopping– again I love shopping, but there’s only so many times you can go to the mall especially when there are no sales ๐Ÿ˜ก

3-Pack a ๐Ÿ—picnic– ok this one would work totally if I lived in the picturesque mountains of Switzerland ๐ŸŒฒ. However since I’m currently stranded in the middle of a desert ๐ŸŒตin the summer๐Ÿ”† lets just scratch that off the list shall we ?๐Ÿ˜’

4-Get โœ‚๏ธcrafting! ok this is my no 1 vacation peeve๐Ÿ˜ก First the damn crafting supplies end up costing me more than what it would take to just buy the thing from a store. Secondly it never ever turns out like anything even remotely close to the picture or video tutorial. 

6- Get๐Ÿณcooking! Sure… after cooking for myself year round and washing endless stacks of dishes that’s exactly what I want to spend my vacation doing ๐Ÿ˜’

6-Read a ๐Ÿ“šbook๐Ÿค“ hmm this ones actually not too bad the only problem being given my ability to speed read I can easily finish a book (300+ pages) in a day. Meaning I would need close to 60 books to keep me entertained and given the fact that not even a single book since the Harry Potter series has even remotely peaked my interest … Well you get the picture.

7- Travel โœˆ๏ธ& see the world!๐ŸŒ Right and I suppose the money for the tickets and the visas and the hotel accommodations will just come from the tree in my backyard ๐Ÿ’ต. I’m totally not a backpacker or sleep in a haystack type traveler and besides on my budget the maximum I’d be able to stay anywhere would be a week anyways so that would still leave 7 more weeks…

8-Sleep!๐Ÿ˜ด I would have to be sleeping beauty or be hit in the neck repeatedly with a tranquilizer dart ๐Ÿ’‰to be out for the entire vacation๐Ÿ˜ณ.

9-Whine & complain haha I swear this was googles attempt at sarcasm ๐Ÿ˜‚ 

So how do you guys beat boredom? Hit with your ideas right hereโ—๏ธ

Until next time loves xoxo๐Ÿ’‹
