Roll brim boater hat from Asos!



I am trying to see things in perspective.
My dog wants a bite of my peanut butter
chocolate chip bagel. I know she cannot
have this, because chocolate makes dogs
very sick. My dog does not understand this.
She pouts and wraps herself around my leg
like a scarf and purrs and tries to convince me
to give her just a tiny bit. When I do not give in,
she eventually gives up and lays in the corner,
under the piano, drooping and sad. I hope the
universe has my best interest in mind like I have
my dogs. When I want something with my whole
being, and the universe withholds it from me,
I hope the universe thinks to herself: "Silly girl.
She thinks this is what she wants, but she
does not understand how it will hurt.

Do you like science? Math? Disney movies? Do you hunt? Play sports? Draw? Have you ever visited the US? Oh and my mom gave me a book of Magical Creatures for my birthday. Sorry about all the questions but thinking up questions is a good way to pass time in class.

I ‘believe’ in science (as in: I trust that most scientific theories are true, as opposed to religious explanations for the universe), but I don’t particularly ‘like’ it. I’m quite naive about how stuff works and I’d rather stay away from anything I don’t understand, so if I have an electric appliance that needs to be fixed, I always ask others for help xD Likewise I fear lightning bolts and I don’t understand much about molecules or the periodic table. :p Oh and I’m horrible at math. I can just about calculate how much money I receive and spend, but I’m terrified of the day I have to start keeping an eye on tax returns…

I like Disney movies a lot, though I believe my favourite animated films are actually made by other companies (How to Train Your Dragon, Cloudy with a chance of meatballs). I don’t really like sports. I do enjoy swimming and cycling, just for fun rather than in a competitive way.

My parents took me on holiday to the US when I was about 4 years old, so I don’t remember much from that, except fishing for gold in a stream near our camping, and scraping my knee after falling on the pavement, and a large dog stealing one of our sausages when we were barbequeing on a camping. We drove around in a camper van. I think we visited the Great Canyon and Yosemite National Park, among some other places. Oh and when I was only 1 year old they took me to New York and we went to the top of one of the twin towers, but obviously I don’t remember that. I hope one day I can visit New York and some other places in the US.

That book sounds really cool! Does it have pretty illustrations?

Have you been to Europe?

Are your classes still boring? :)


The Elf Fantasy Fair was wonderful again, and we had (unexpectedly) great weather :3

I didn’t buy any clothes (=miracle), but I found a very cute furry/fluffy black bag that was half priced. It’s a bit like a soot creature from Spirited Away.

And JACK SKELLINGTON asked if he could have a picture with me because I was carrying my Nightmare Before Christmas bag and wearing Nightmare Before Christmas shoes.

There was also someone dressed up as Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon, sooo cute.








Circus Tree: Six individual sycamore trees were shaped, bent, and braided to form this.

how the hell do you bend and braid a tree

Actually pretty easy. Trees don’t reject tissue from other trees in the same family. You bend the tree to another tree when it is a sapling, scrape off the bark on both trees where they touch, add some damp sphagnum moss around them to keep everything slightly moist and bind them together. Then wait a few years- The trees will have grown together. You can use a similar technique to graft a lemon branch or a lime branch or even both- onto an orange tree and have one tree that has all three fruits.Frankentrees.

As a biologist I can clearly state that plants are fucking weird and you should probably be slightly afraid of them.

On that note! At the university (UBC) located in town, the Agriculture students were told by their teacher that a tree flipped upside down would die. So they took an excavator and flipped the tree upside down. And it’s still growing. But the branches are now the roots, and the roots are now these super gnarly looking branches. Be afraid.

But Vi, how can you mention that and NOT post a picture? D:


I am both amazed and horrified of nature as we all should be
"They thought I was too young. Yet this is an industry that fetishizes youth. However because I wasn’t a tall, skinny, hot model, it wasn’t a youth they were comfortable with. A magazine editor turned to me at a show where we were seated next to each other and asked ‘When do you go to school?’, and I felt like saying ‘When do your models go to school?’"
