“Moyamoya syndrome is a disease in which certain arteries in the brain are constricted. Blood flow is blocked by the constriction, and also by blood clots. A collateral circulation develops around the blocked vessels to compensate for the blockage, but the collateral vessels are small, weak, and prone to hemorrhage, aneurysm and thrombosis. On conventional…

OOTD: Pushed

Succumbing to the social pull of what’s normal happens often. We forgo our lives and slip into the expectations of others. We fear failure. We fear disappointments. We fear who we can be. We fear who we want to be.  Pushed and pulled, we live behind our mask. Like a snake shedding its skin, we…

OOTD: Lose Yourself

Did you know that we can lose ourselves in two different ways? One of the ways is our ability to displace our sense of self and time. This usually occurs when we’re so focused on something/someone we lapse into a realm where time and self cease to exist. The focal point enraptures and embodies our psyche….

Loot Anime Unboxing: “Work For It!”

Loot Anime Unboxing It’s been one of those months- crazy, hectic… no time for much of anything. We’re back to our normal routined schedule folks (with a few added projects we’ve managed to pile upon ourselves). And, I’m loving every minute of it… Still, I got swept into the daily currents of life’s demands and…

National Bow Tie Day

Admit it, bow ties are cool… There’s just something about them.  For a while, I didn’t dig the bow tie look. Part of it was because I just didn’t see too many people wearing them. I always associated bow ties to formal events. And, because my aesthetics leaned more towards the grungy and comfortably lax…

OOTD: 1238

I’m faced with the reality that, sometimes, the quiet I seek is at the birth of the coming day.  We were busy yesterday- actually, it’s been a busy a month… a BUSY year. It’s not that anything exceptional or extraordinary happened…. but the adjustment of change is uprooting the old foundation we had as a…

OOTD: Time is an Illusion

Time is an illusion Ever watch a movie in slow motion? Ever fast forward to your favorite part? The speed at which we watch things triggers the senses. It makes us feel and digest the information differently.  I used to play a game with my eyes as a little girl.  I would try to see…

Loot Anime Unboxing: Action Comedy

Theme: Action Comedy Some people are anime experts. Others, casual fans. Me? I’m that other type. I watch the same anime, forget I watched it, then watch it again… only to realize at episode 5 that this was a repeat occurrence.  I don’t have a long list of anime to pull quotes or references from….

OOTD: Summer

Timing and preparation is the first step into the evolution of your goals.  Think of your goals as a kite. You check the weather, find the best place to fly your kite, and wait for the wind to take it away. The wind serves as the opportunities life has to offer. Ready or not, it will come…

OOTD: Everyday Hero

Heroes seems to be latest obsession. It’s not a new trend, but technology is changing how heroic icons is delivered to the masses. What’s the draw? I think that it’s a relief from the daily norm. The story behind the heroes we gravitate to inspires us and involves us in a controlled world with a definite…

Gamer Block: May Unboxing

This  box is the reason we fell in love with Gamer Block in the first place. It’s jammed packed with collectibles I’m excited to use. The items felt like we were adding things of quality to our growing collection. It had a throw-back feel, which made for a nostalgic unboxing experience.  Memories of me playing Tekken…

OOTD: Vibe

I remember being confused by the different starting points they placed us in track. We had one goal and one end. But, why did we start at different places? It messed with my head at first. But, once the race started…. I was off like a bullet fired from a gun. I had one target…

OOTD: Lemonade

It was hot, muggy, and extremely bright. And…. there we were in the mix of it all. We had our kids, my camera, and lemonade to cool off. The first sip of it was heaven. Everything after that, paradise. It’s kind of  like life. You have to be in the mix of it all to…
