Filling the Void

Hello, readers.  Today was a good day.  A family friend gifted me with some used furniture.  A bed and a chest of drawers.  My bedroom is finally starting to look like a bedroom.

For the bed, the original idea was to spray paint the brass headboard black.  But my mother suggested that we pad it and cover it in black fabric instead.  Both ideas sound good.  So, either way works for me.

As for the chest of drawers, they're definitely getting painted black.  I'm also thinking about replacing the current knobs with glass ones.  Other plans include painting the walls a silver/gray color, and putting up black curtains.  That's all for Aji's decorating corner.  Til next time. XD

And I'm Back

Hey, readers.  Haven't been around much lately because my mother and I recently moved into a new place and didn't have any internet.  Still don't have any internet of our own, but our upstairs neighbor was nice enough to let us use his wi-fi.  Internet shenanigans ahoy!

Since is back up and running, I might hold a little online housewarming party on there.  If that happens, I'll post a link on a facebook and twitter.  So, keep your eyes peeled.  Til next time.

Spooky Entertainment

Image Source:
Hey, readers.  Today, I'm taking a detour from misery lane to bring you a bit of spooky gaming news.  If you enjoy ghosts and flash games, then I think you'll really like Haunt the House.  In the game, you play a ghost living in an old house.  The objective is to scare all of the people that are inside of it out. 
While the objective seems simple, it's a bit tricky.  You have to scare the people just enough that they run out of the house.  However, if you scare them to badly, they kill themselves by jumping out of windows.  The number of people that kill themselves effects your score.  So, be careful. 
I found the game to be a fun time killer.  You can find it for free online or get it for your PC/console.  Til next time.

Walls are Closing In

Hey, readers.  For the past few weeks, I've been dealing with some personal issues that have left me feeling really down and stressed out.  It's like I'm in this void where nothing I say or do matters.  I hate this feeling.  Go away, feeling.

To distract myself, I've been doing a lot of youtube watching and podcast listening.  Again, I'm sorry about the lack of updates.  Really hoping to get back into the swing of things soon.  What do you like to do when you're feeling down?  Let me know in the comments.

What to Do? What to Do?

Hello, readers.  Lately, I've been in a blogging funk.  This is mostly due to a halt in my DIY activities and other factors that I don't want to get into.  A few weeks ago, I discovered that my laptop had a voice recording program on it.  Must of sneaked its way in when I upgraded to Windows 10.

Anyway, for the past week, I've been toying with the idea of doing voice recordings on topics dealing with the goth subculture; and other alternative subcultures.  What do you think?  Would you want to hear my random babbling on gothy things?  If so, what would you like me to talk about?  Let me know in the comments.

You can also post your suggestions on my facebook and twitter page.  #gothbabble

Mind's in a Fog

Will get back to blogging soon.  Until then, enjoy this image of my mental state.

Pastel Punk?

Well, I did it again.  I entered an avatar into another avatar contest.  This time, the theme was pastel punk.  At the time, I didn't know if it was an actual trend or if it was a theme made up by the contest creator.  

Without even bothering to do a quick google search, I came up with a look that I thought fell under the theme of pastel punk and entered it.  Here's my handiwork.

She looks like she could be a member of Jem and the Holograms.  The cartoon, not that heinous movie.  Anyway, as usual, I didn't place.  But as I was looking at the winners and other contestants, I noticed that most of them looked more pastel goth than pastel punk.  When I finally did do a google search on it, I came across the same thing.  

The majority of the images on the page looked more pastel goth than pastel punk.  I don't get it.  Seems like a lot of subcultures are getting pastel counterparts these days.  What's next?  Pastel hip-hop?
