Foot Fetish

I don’t want to call it that because it sounds dirty so I’m just going to say preference (maybe).

When someone is barefoot my eyes gravitate towards their openness and I get a once-over to see if they are nice or not. If they are nice (meaning if they are clean, clipped nails, long toes (not stubby)), then you get major bonus points towards me liking you. See? Preference.

I’m not a bad person for technically judging someone by their feet, I’m just thinking about what kind of person doesn’t care about their own feet. I have plenty of friends whose feet aren’t the best and I still love them (the person, not the feet) to pieces. I just get really happy when I see a really attractive person with nice feet. I don’t know why but I do.

Example: when I see a celebrity with bare feet I get excited; it’s like they’re real people you know? They weren’t born with some super fancy shoe as a foot instead of 10 toes and a fear of stepping on Legos.

I like feet but I don’t have a foot “fetish”.

Please tell me I’m not alone in thinking something like this.

What is your awkward fetish/ not fetish?


Christmas Is Upon Us

Like many others I am a big fan of Christmas. I don’t like decorating the Christmas tree but I do love decorating the house and putting up lights. Christmas is a wonderful time for giving, as many people do: presents are the #1 things we give on Christmas. I love opening presents (I’m only 20 I can still enjoy a childlike Christmas) and I love wrapping presents (even though I’m terrible at it), I love seeing the look on the recipients face when they see what they got.

Christmas is about so much more than presents though: family, fellowship, religious beliefs. We as a culture, we as a people, make Christmas about giving hundreds of dollars in toys and gadgets and gift-able items but rarely do we see people celebrating the real meaning of Christmas: giving back to the people that can’t give at all due to their circumstances or loving the time they get off to appreciate their family and friends.

What does Christmas mean for you?

Aspen Coffee Stillwater

Review on the downtown Aspen Coffee in Stillwater, OK.

So Aspen is a cute little coffee shop (chain) in downtown Stillwater. I really enjoyed the atmosphere, they had knickknacks, large jars of coffee beans on display (you ask them at the counter for a 1/2lb (or however much you want) bag of it and they take the giant jar and measure it for you to take home and enjoy). It was a wonderful place to study. They didn’t have a bathroom which sucked when I spilled Jacob’s (the man in the picture) coffee all over the table and his notebook. He had to go behind the counter and wash his hands.

So yeah. That happened. I knocked it over when I was trying to touch his arm to tell him that everything was okay, obviously it wasn’t when I almost ruined his phone… Thank God for Bookbook, right?

After the catastrophe we settled back down and did homework and studied. I got a lot done, more so than if I were in my dorm, because if I were there I would be bingeing Arrow.

Anyway: Aspen Coffee Downtown was fantastic and I am currently texting Jacob about how we want to make it a regular study place.

If you’re in the neighborhood we’ll be at the high table in the corner. 😉

Flannel: A Lumberjack’s best friend, or a college student’s best friend, or a ’90s enthusiast’s best friend.

Flannels are the greatest shirts for the fall and winter seasons. They are stylish, super comfortable and super warm. I wear them anywhere and everywhere. I even wear them to sleep sometimes. Flannels grew popular because of lumberjacks wearing them, but they hit their style peak in the 1990s when bands like Nirvana and Pearl Jam wore them on stage. Flannels are made from a material that is soft enough to wear for long hours at a time but tough enough to withstand the elements while working.

Flannel: Lumberjack style

Flannels are very versatile articles of clothing. You can wear them with the sleeves down and utilize the warmth of the long sleeves, or you can roll them up and find your happy medium. To be more like a lumberjack (costume idea?) you could just rip the sleeves off, or you could wear it around your waist and be retro.

Flannel: trendy style

Flannel shirts are super trendy, comfortable and relatable. I have three of my own, and I plan on expanding my collection this winter. They come in many different colors, but the fan favorite seems to be black and red.
