Is it just me or...

Lately I've figured out that there's a lot of things I have to do, and I'm not sure if they're unique to me. Let me know if it's just me or...

-is it impossible to dress for San Francisco, because sometimes it’s freezing and sometimes it’s  warm and you never know when?

-is it nice to unplug for a little while and just enjoy the present?

-If anyone takes the train to work, is it just the Caltrain, or does no one talk to each other, ever?  In typical Hima fashion, I’ve tried to start a few conversations, and I’ve gotten straight up ignored.

-is getting a flip flop/flats tan something to be proud of?

-Is losing your phone and searching madly for it, only to find it in your wallet an hourly occurrence?

-Is street art/graffiti actually really really pretty/ To me, it’s nicer than seeing gray concrete is all!

-Are double-decker trains and buses really cool? I always ride on top!

-Does Rice University remind you of Hogwarts? (click for a picture)

-Does every girl (or guy with long hair), always have a single black hair tie on their wrist?

-do you have to set multiple alarms to wake up, because you know you’ll just turn the first one off? I even do this when it’s summer and I get, like 10 hours of sleep a night. I also have to put it across the room so I have to get up and walk.

Clearly, I’ve been worrying about these a lot lately. So please, assuage my worries and let me know if it is just me in the comments below! Feel free to ask your own is it just me questions too!

xo, Hima

  1. I can't talk about anything, but the last one. I can't wake up if my family members don't shake me or yell at me in the morning. I set minimum 5 alarms, but no luck. I know how to turn it off even when I'm asleep.

  3. LOL YES I always always have a single black hair tie around my wrist HOW DID YOU KNOW. I also love street art and I know from experience SF is indeed impossible to dress for. Just gotta layer up/down!

  6. UK weather is just like that so we kinda dress for winter but ready for summer. I know what you mean about trains apart from my new one friend and a work colleague I smile at people on train trying to start conversation but get back nada lol. I love double decker buses

  7. The weather is a bit silly in Vancouver too - in just one day, there was sunshine, clouds, pouring rain, sunshine, rain, and finally clear skies. Only thing I was grateful for was spending it indoors when the pouring rain came out of nowhere. I like getting flip flop/flat tans, personally - makes me feel more in the summer-y mood! :P Plus it makes me happy to know that I managed to get darker too, haha

  15. Here are my answers, lol: No, you just have to dress in layers (I'm a Bay Area girl, too); Absolutely!; no, it's not just Caltrain, I hear other places are worse; I think so; for me it is; I agree, I've even done graffiti manicures; Yes!; Yes!; I don't know about every girl, but if my hair isn't in a ponytail already, pretty much; nope, you're on your own on that one! :) xoxo

  21. II DO put four alarms for mornings (Each 5 minutes away) Because I know I'm going to fall asleep after the first one!

    ReplyDelete
  22. SUPER YES on the alarm clock. I put mine on a table where I have to get up to turn it off also and I'm SO PISSED at myself every morning.

  23. Hmm try setting it across the room so you have to get up and walk over! That really helped me!

  46. Just found your blog through HCBN!! And I love it so much! :) I'm new to the Network and I love how I can find awesome bloggers to follow. Anyways, I love what you said about graffiti and street art. Before I took a graffiti tour in Spain, when I traveled abroad, I looked at graffiti in a negative light--but now, I see how beautiful it can be. And yes I'm one of those long-haired girls with a black hair tie on my wrist--always. :) xo, gina

  47. I definitely agree on the San Francisco thing. Each time we've visited, I hate it because it'll be July and I'll be wearing a hoodie, but the next day I'll need shorts and a t-shirt!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I swear, they're like my battle scars from being out in the sun! I'm so proud of them :) Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  53. LOL...I wear a hair tie on my wrist all the time. Hahaha And yes, Rice University does sort of remind me of Hogwarts. And I love street art too. :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Since I was in middle school I have had a single black hair tie on my left wrist! And yes, dressing for weather in Northern California/Bay Area can be impossible sometimes...

  55. Unplugging is the best!!! Im in India rn so there are days when the power goes out and our wifi just stops working - and it basically teaches me to not get bored and to keep myself occupied by going outside or relaxing with a good book <3
    Ily Himies bye

Thank you so much for leaving a comment! You probably just made my day :) I do my best to reply to every single one, even if it takes a little while. Make sure you're not a no-reply blogger so we don't get deprived of a wonderful conversation!
