I've been wanting to share this for some time, but the night I edited these photos I was running entirely on caffeine and you'll see the result of that in some of the photo editing XD I've actually had a very serious mood for the past week and that's why I haven't posted yet. I've been waiting for it to pass so I can get back to fun times! And this morning when my open window being rattled by a strong pleasant breeze woke me, and the sunlight was pouring in with the fresh scent of Spring, I knew it was going to be fun times again, haha~
So now I feel alright posting. I'm so slow getting things posted. I'll say "I'm doing this new thing!" but you won't see it until a month later because I'm slow! No, maybe busy. Slow and busy! I go at my own turtle pace ;D
Onto the subject! I love Bhangra music. I love drums. I love the deep bass boom and clean tik-tik of the dhol. A little while ago I received some money back that was totally unexpected, and instead of being the rational person I usually am, pinching every penny when it comes to personal expense, I was the impulsive version of myself that surfaces once in a while. And I bought a dhol. I got the cheapest one I could find on ebay, and a week later it arrived. I happened to be in a state of gyaru at the time, so enjoy my ridiculousness~
|The joy! Can you see it!?|
I have a lot to learn, but I was happy to find out I'm not a terrible beginner. I have to self-teach using videos on the internet. I did take real drum lessons once, so some of that is useful with the dhol. Lots of practice! I need lots of practice and then maybe I can do a video showing everyone my magical dhol power & rhythm XD
I was in the middle of a hair & makeup test at the time, and was just wearing casual clothes--not very gyaru unless it was some strange alternate universe haddy (kidding). But in the spirit of taking pictures, I did an outfit shot anyway.
These are things I've been trying to get myself to part with actually. I consider this my "disaster outfit" skirt, because whenever I wear it my outfit is a disaster XD
I bought a bunch of Toki Doki tees at one point because they were on clearance at Macy's for $5-$10 and I thought they were cute, but I hate t-shirts! Well, one with a regular neck anyway. It feels like it's choking me! And again, I want pastel stuff GONE! Outta my life! It doesn't suit me!
The event I was testing hair & makeup for... well, I kept the braids and flower, but you'll see what happened with my hair & makeup when I get to posting that ^o^
I haven't picked up my new ~green~ cirlce lenses yet, so I just went without. I like the look of not having them as well. I can't wait to try green though!
Because I never seem to smile! I have one face when it comes to pictures, and I always look angry, so there! Haha. Also, sorry about the weird white-out wall. Our cat's scratch pad was hanging there looking pretty ragged. Crazy cats.
Anyone else play an instrument? I'm learning guitar & bass as well, but I'm best at playing my stereo ~o^
