Japanese shironuri artist Minori on the street in Harajuku wearing a hand painted princess dress with flower petal decorated makeup and handmade accessories. Full Look

I love her interviews on YouTube and seeing all the steps she takes to do her makeup. She seems so sweet.

Anonymous asked:

Are you sure Bronx isn't dangerous? Isn't Bronx a ghetto?

A

It is extremely dangerous. The second you step off the subway or out of a taxi in the Bronx, a gang of ‘ethnic’ men will get up in your face and try to coerce you into buying heroin. If you refuse, they will shoot you. This happens 100% of the time to every person who steps within the borough lines of the Bronx. They are actually government-paid members of the Bronx Neighborhood Welcoming Committee.

how much is your rent in ny? Is it studio or 1 bedroom with kitchen, living room, and bathroom.

A

I don’t have an apartment yet, so I don’t know. I have a roommate so I won’t be living in a studio. Every place we looked at had two bedrooms, a kitchen, a living room, and a bathroom. As for the money… we are both trying to live on a budget. What we are looking at is typical for our area. I’ll actually be paying around what my apartment cost per month in Korea. And by that, I mean cost for the government… because I never had to pay rent for it! kek

so which town in ny did you find an apartment?

A

I did not find an apartment for sure. I want to live in the Bronx. 

At some point after you’ve been commuting for a very long time (around my fifth hour on an Amtrak train today) you kind of give up looking like a decent human being and take off your shoes and crouch backwards in your seat with your forehead touching the headrest looking exactly like Gollum because that is the only position left for your body to take that is comfortable. 

There were only like 5 people in my entire car so I don’t think anyone saw me. But there was a very attractive Amtrak employee who walked up and down the aisle a few times who definitely witnessed my ‘Gollum giving up on life’ impersonation. I am a bit embarrassed about that.

PS Speaking of attractive people… particularly men… New York is crawling with them. I was holed up in a Pret waiting for my interview and each guy who came in to get a coffee was more attractive and better dressed than the next. I really think I’m going to like it there.

Are you dating any Korean guys now?

A

No. I am not dating anyone. Except I cuddle with my dog and we lick each other’s mouths. But it isn’t anything serious.

I think I have to go to DC at the end of August so if I do, I’m going to New York also to visit my friends and fly back to texas with my uncle and cousin and get my ps3 back and to sleep on partyintherok's couch and I AM SO EXCITED.

I can’t guarantee that it will be so much a couch as a greasy, stained, roach-infested cushion I picked up off the side of the road to decorate my ten foot square crack den of a New York apartment, but…

One of my former students (from Seoul, obviously) is on a trip to the northeastern US and her photo uploads are too precious. She uploaded a picture of some cereal at a hotel continental breakfast bar and it has like 20 likes and comments about how awesome it is from other Korean high schoolers and it’s just literally Fruit Loops and corn flakes. And she uploaded a picture of ‘foreigners’ taking their luggage out of a car trunk in the hotel parking lot which I think she took surreptitiously out of a window and captioned it “American fashion style” but it’s just two girls and a guy in shirts and t-shirts that are no different from what older Korean teenagers would wear… hahaha.

Is this how Koreans feel when westerners take photos of Kimbap Heaven kimbap rolls and couple tees, though.
