I would eat the entire game before anybody wins.
NO. WHENEVER YOU CAPTURE ONE OF YOUR OPPONENT’S PIECES, YOU GET TO EAT IT.
During break, two of my coworkers (one from America and one from Malaysia) were talking about how to dress more European. They were bickering while pointing at something on one of their phones. Then they turned to me and ask, ’Aya, you’ve been around Europe, right?’ I reply with a yes.
'You're also part European and dress well— Can you show us how to dress more European?' Apparently, they've been getting pretty annoyed at being spotted from miles away as 'foreigners'.
They show me a few websites on ‘how to dress European’ and I could only laugh because the articles sounded like they almost definitely weren’t written by Europeans. All of them played on stereotypes. Khaki’s, plaid, jeans, shorts, sandals are a big no-no. Cardigans, Nutella, Pumas, ‘Classy’ clothing, boots, and mary jane shoe were essential. All of which have a hint of truth but not really spot on.
I never laughed so hard reading an article about fashion in my life. One article that had pictures were very keen about being ‘classy’ and dressing moderate (meaning not too boring and not too risque) but wore bight yellow trousers and a polka dot blouse with fuschia-toned floral cardigan with make-up so thick you could tell where her highlighter and bronzer/contour began and ended. Her co-model was no different, wearing bight yellow dress with a hot pink cropped blazer and accessories the screamed the 70’s.
I told my coworkers to ditch the websites and articles and just go shopping with me later. Which may have been a terrible decision on my part because I’m probably gonna end up buying things I don’t need.
We go out on our own
It’s a big bad world outside
Carrying our dreams and all that they mean
Trying to make it all worthwhile
Anonymous asked: where do you get your inspiration for your 6 word stories?
Sometimes my own experiences. Sometimes songs or movies. Sometimes nothing is an inspiration as well.
