The Shannara Chronicles

Just a brief reaction I had which led me to an out of body learning experience.

So I’m watching the Shannara Chronicles…on my cell phone because my Wi-Fi is just not wit it… whatever, it’s irritating. Anyway, girl and dude are riding through the forest all boo-ed up on the horse and I’m like wow #single. It’s so hard out there for a romantic. Like, let me just say, it’s Austin Butler, okayyyyy. Like, It’s Sebastian from The Carrie Diaries. Admittedly, not as cute right now in this world, but I figure that’ll change once the plot thickens. So, please, I’m already high key interested in this show. Then he stops my entire world when his character points out what they’re passing in the forest. He says- I’m slightly paraphrasing but- “don’t you ever think about how the ancient humans were able to build such incredible things?” And I’m like whaaaa??? I had to pause it. Here I am thinking this is some alternate reality, you know? It doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with my reality beyond plotline relatability. Except stop, there are pieces of cars and wrecked helicopters covered in forest brush. Girl (I don’t know her name yet) is soo apathetic. Just, “don’t know, don’t care wtf, they’re dead, that whole civilization is done, since they’re the ones who could make that stuff and we can’t, why does it matter then? Moving on.” (Now that was hugely paraphrased.)

 

So, then, at this point, I’m truly blown because, is that not how ancient civilizations are looked at as a whole? I mean there are others, specialists, people who never stop going to school but,for whom, instead the research “goes down” out in the field watching nature react to the unknown to teach them about how the world works.; the scientists, the doctors, the psychologists, etc. Like, the pyramids, do you really understand how they were able to do that? Or toilets before plumbing?! I don’t, like I know the plumbing thing was linked somehow to the word aqueduct… and this could genuinely just be me, I could be lacking in the lust-for-all-knowledge department, I don’t think I am, but totally possible. Anyway, isn’t that crazy, a whole way of life, day-to-day survival and mundanity? They have an entirely different perception of boring; do they even know what shoes are? Do they hold the same vital necessity? These elves? Do they even understand that piece of metal on the ground was once in the air? Isn’t that crazy? I think that’s insane. I love that these thoughts come to me when I watch television. You can always find a new way to look at the world and it’s so exciting, you start to see everything from a different perspective. Supah fun. Hopefully in this world, I can look forward to the possibility of the other realm revealing itself to the humans so we can live in harmony.

Overall Adorable

So, lately, I’ve been getting into overalls. I just like the thought of them, you know? They seem cute and easy and fashionable. However, I haven’t gone searching for a pair yet, because I was unsure how they would look.

I only shop when I have a goal in mind otherwise it’s exhausting trying to decide whether I want to spend money on something I may only wear once and then I do and then I’m broke for a while and it’s just a mess, so I just don’t do it.

Anyway. I was watching Carrie Diaries (please tell me you watch it), and little miss Sophia Robb was looking absolutely, adorable in her overalls. It bothered me though that she wasted such a cute outfit pouting around the house over Sebastian, but hey, a lot of cute outfits are only ever truly appreciated by ourselves. Anyway here’s a Young Carrie Bradshaw in overalls.

Now it’s not necessarily this that made me foam at the mouth  with admiration, it was the follow up memory of a flawless Sarah Jessica Parker wearing overalls in Sex in the City.

Now I wouldn’t necessarily wear the 80s version of Carrie Bradshaw’s overall ensemble, but I like the idea, casual and comfortable. Easy, Breezy, Beautiful, Covergirl. Also, I don’t know if they put her in those overalls on purpose, recalling the exact moment I did when an older Carrie would too don the overalls, but brilliant nonetheless, I applaud the sense of continuity.

SIDENOTE, I heard Bently mention Stanford as his roommate…um excuse me, THE Stanford? I can’t wait. I canNOT wait for next season, I’m dying with the knowledge I won’t be watching it tomorrow. So sad.

Anyway, here is my take on the overalls craze.

and another…

I saw the top and had to put it in, I mean come on! An overalls crop top? Brilliant! You can wear overalls even when you’re not wearing overalls. I love it.

Anyway, I don’t know if this is going to turn into an actual craze, I know Rihanna has hopped on it, but she can get a bit crazy with her choices. We’ll see what the future holds for the precious overalls. However, until further notice, they are my current obsession and I’m going to enjoy the ride.
