What do we do when we're stuck in the house?

Anything we can!

The snow/ice combo going on down here is making it impossible to leave the house! School has been canceled for the entire week (Which I must say, I don't mind not having school xD). Aside from a small trip to wall★mart I haven't left the house. There are a few things to do when stuck inside for a week, and I haven't done many of them. Mostly sat like a zombie in front of my computer. I have done a few entertaining things though!

☆First form of entertainment ~ Cook/Bake/Eat!☆

I've been eating so many yummy things xD

Mostly ice cream

and cupcakes

Thought there has been actual food thrown in there.

☆Second form of entertainment ~ [Internet] Window Shop!☆

Probably the best thing to do when you have oodles of free time is to look at everything you want. everything! I like to compile it all into a "wishlist" spreadsheet. So far, I have 32 items on my non-brand lolita wish list totaling up to $1,052. ;u; One day~!

☆Third form of entertainment ~ Do your hair & make up!☆

This is always fun to do! My hair is an awkward length thats hard for me to style normally, so I just leave it down. I decided playing around with my hair to discover what it could do wouldn't do much harm. The result~

Some hime hair! I think it's fun to do. I also discovered I can pull of a fluffy bun, two braids, and other cute styles. No excuses for me, I'l have to actually style my hair from now on xD.

☆Fourth form of entertainment ~ Start something new / craft!☆

I've been wanting to pick up knitting for a long time now, but never quite got the hang of it. Last night, at our small trip to wall★mart, I decided now was definitely the time to try again. I'm not going to say I'm horrible at it, but... xD I'm not doing too well. It's a lot of fun though, and keeping me from cabin fever! Maybe once this "Scarf" (I don't think I can even call it that;;) is completed, I can add some things on and edit it to make it look less terrible.

So many holes and gained / lost stitches x--x (I'll get the hang of it someday;;).

☆Fifth form of entertainment ~ Movies!☆

So far, I've watched Tangled, Tron Legacy, Despicable Me, Mean Girls, Little Nemo, Spirited Away, and Sailor moon SuperS - Black Dream Hole in the last few days. Sitting back with popcorn (or ice cream x3) and watching a movie is a great way to pass the time while staying relatively entertained :D.

Hopefully, this helps some of you out of whatever boredom you may experience!

P.S - Those of you who knit, can you help me? I keep gaining stitches (are they called stitches in knitting?;;;) somehow @~@.


  1. Ohhh I loved Tangled! How'd you see it? It's out of theaters here so my sister couldn't see it (;n; )... I just saw Despicable Me the other day tooo~

    You're so lucky to have a whoolee week of snowdays
    (;^; )

    Wish I could help you with the knitting, but I'm a sewing person (>u<;; ).... Good luck!~

  2. Aha, we weren't able to see it in theaters so we torrented it xD. I want to see it in the $2 theater by my house once its out there! it's so cute ;u;.

    I really love it x3 We're going to have to make up during summer, but at least its warmer then;;.

    I'm also a big sewing person @~@ yarn is so new to me!

  3. I can knit, so if you have any questions, I can always try to help! Gaining stitches is better than losing stitches. If you lose a stich, it might fall apart later on...Also, keep on trying! Knitting is much easier than crocheting. (At least I think so...)

  4. Thank you! Thats good to know :D I'm having a lot of fun with it ;3;. 'll be sure to ask you if I come across any problems~ ♥.
