got the four pack !!

Guys, every press review or comment from someone who got the first four episodes advanced pack has basically said that the first three are going to seem like child’s play compared to episode four. It’s also been mentioned that there is “a killer moment at the end of episode 4, arguably the best clone-on-clone beat that Tatiana Maslany and Orphan Black’s technical wizards have ever produced.”

If we’re breaking down just after these two, how are we going to survive episode 4? 

Look what an amazing thing I bought. I dare to say it’s even purrfect!

Okay, my witchy (or crafty) friends, I’m here to tell you how I made some cute little floral soaps to go in my new(ish) bathroom. They are incredibly simple and quite cheap. These pictures suck because I took them, instead of my very talented wife, but bear with me.

You’ll Need:
Assorted herbs (dried or fresh)
Bar soap of your choice (unscented is best, also look for the fewest ingredients)
Small glass dishes that won’t be used for food (I got a four pack for a dollar at Dollar Tree)
A grater that won’t be used for food
A microwave
A fridge

Here we goooooo!
1. So you wanna grate up the bar of soap, and then pack a medium layer into the bottom of the glass bowl.
2. Sprinkle some herbs in there. If they are dried, you don’t have to do much. If they are fresh, grind them a little with a mortar and pestle or just roll them around between your fingers to get the smells out. I also ground my hibiscus up with a tiny bit of pure lemon extract to get a lemony smell.
3. Add another layer of grated soap, pack that shit down.
4. Repeat until you have as many herbs as you want, but leave a little room for your soap to expand when you heat it.
5. When your happy with the amount you have, put your little bowl in the microwave. Set it for one minute and (THIS IS IMPORTANT) make sure you’re watching. Stop the microwave every time the soap starts to puff up. Pull it out, pack it down, repeat. When all the soap feels warm to the touch, scoop it out with your fingers and flip it over in the bowl. Pack it down good and tight. Start the microwave again, wait for it to puff up just once. Pull it out for good. Pack it down.
6. Stick the bowl in the fridge to cool.
7. When it’s completely cool (15ish minutes), you should be able to push it out of the bowl.
8. Set out to be used or store in a plastic baggie in a cool place. You can even keep it in the fridge if you want to be sure it won’t melt.
9. Clean up is easy, because you’re just cleaning up soap!

Combinations I used:
Lavender chamomile (for protection, healing, and luck, plus to calm nerves.)
Hibiscus and lemon (for purification and self-love, plus energizing smells.)
Peppermint (for healing, plus good for headaches.)


I got my glass bowls for a dollar, an 8 pack of Jergens bar soap for $4, and the herbs for a few cents each in bulk. Making this a project that costs under $10 to make 4 soaps, plus only takes a few minutes. Have fun with the herbs and smells you use! You can add intent to them, like I did, or just make them smell nice.

1. Fail early and often; time is your best asset.

When you are young, your greatest asset is not your talent, not your ideas, not your experience, but your time. Time grants you the opportunity to take big risks and make big mistakes. Dropping everything and traveling the world for six years or starting some company to build this crazy app you and your friends came up with when you got high one night, or randomly packing up all (four) of your belongings and moving to another city on a whim to work and live with your cousin, you can only get away with these things when you’re young, when you have nothing to lose. The difference between an unemployed 22-year-old with debt and no serious work experience and an unemployed 25-year-old with debt and no work experience is basically negligible in the long run.

Chances are you aren’t strapped by all of the financial responsibilities that come with later adulthood: mortgage payments, car payments, daycare for your kids, life insurance and so on. This is the time in your life where you have the least amount to lose by taking some long-shot risks, so you should take them. Because its the disastrous failures of these years — that crazy love affair with the Taiwanese dancer that made your mother lose her hair, or the entrepreneurial joint venture some guy in Starbucks talked you into that turned out to be an elaborate pyramid scheme — it’s these failures that will set you up for your life successes down the line. They are the best lessons of your life. Get learning.

share with me the Kinder Surprise Experience™

alright i went out and bought kinder surprise just for this. i got a pack of 3 and it cost me FOUR WHOLE DOLLARS.

STEP ONE acquire kinder surprise egg.

STEP TWO UNWRAP THAT SHIT. hopefully it’s intact because they break p easily

STEP THREE no one bites into it because it’s hollow and fragile and will probably just BREAK if u do and get VERY MESSY. instead u must skillfully break the egg along the seam to reveal ANOTHER plastic egg-type thing

holy shit ITS THE TOY CASING. BUT WHAT TOY IS INSIDE?? I DONT KNOW MAN THATS ALL PART OF THE KINDER SURPRISE EXPERIENCE!!!!

STEP FOUR eat the choclate. unless ur an impateint motherfucker or ur just in this for the toy. then fuck the chocolate

STEP FIVE open the casing. they changed it i guess but BACK IN MY DAY you used to have to go through the fires of hell and back to open the kinder surprise container

HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT

STEP SIX take out the little pieces and the little instructions and BUILD THAT SHIT. sometimes you will get crappy little toys that are already built and those are no fun so we are LUCKY THIS TIME.

LOOK ITS A LITTLE JUMPING RABBIT!!! AMAZING

STEP SEVEN relive childhood. you are now filled with delicious kinder chocolate and playing with a small kinder toy. life is good

finally went school supplies shopping last night! here’s my list if you can’t tell exactly what i got:

four packs of loose leaf paper (one of them is in my blue binder)

a big pack of regular index cards

colored pencils (requested by my bio teacher)

6 one subject notebooks

one 4 pocket folder

a 1 ½" binder

pencils, mechanical and regular

blue and black pens

glue sticks

post it notes

a ti-84+ graphing calculator (in the blue and white design case)

a planner, which is the only thing i didn’t get from office depot. it’s from target.

highlighters

and a 5-subject notebook.

the reason i got so many notebooks and filler paper is because i go through them like no tomorrow lmao, and i like using them for mid-terms and finals for my most needed notes and such. sorry if this was a bit long! 😬

Stationary haul! I stopped by Target today and was completely mesmerized by all their cute stationary. I got three different sticky notes sets, a Christmas flag notes set, a four-pack set of mechanical pencils, a set of two pens, a matching mint and gold polka-dotted washi tape, and a red glittery washi tape for the grand total of $6.70. 

For those that don’t know, shrubs are a centuries old drink made out of vinegar, sugar, fruit, and aromatics and can be used in both cocktails & non-alcoholic drinks. Vinegar has tons of great health benefits and is a natural thirst quencher. I got a four pack of Shrub & Co. fruit & aromatic shrubs and can’t wait to experiment with them. This one, the Bourbon & Peach Cocktail is straight out of their recipe book.

Muddle mint in a shaker and then add liquid ingredients & ice. Shake & strain into a rocks glass filled with crushed ice and garnish with mint. You can pull out the peach sweetness, it’s a little tart, and all around refreshing and the mint gives it a nice clean flavour too. The whiskey got a bit lost I feel so next time I’m going to use an overproof bourbon in hopes of balancing it out. 

This is perfect for those that like Mint Julep’s but want something slightly more complex or fruity. 

Cheers.

today I drove 90 minutes to go to a grocery store.

if you live in Ohio or anywhere within 100 miles of Cincinnati you understand, because the store was jungle jim’s international market.

it is the disney world of grocery stores.

i am not even fucking kidding or exaggerating, like not even a little bit.

i went to the beer section which is like paradise

they had so much beer from ommegang brewery which makes the best beer in the universe

i bought one four-pack and some mix-and-match bottles

when i got home and was unloading the groceries the handle on the four-pack broke and it fell to the ground and they all broke

i let out a wail of anguish the likes of which my parking lot has never seen

i’m not over it
