Wardrobe Post

My wardrobe is Gothic and Classic with a tiny bit of Steampunk. I like wearing vintage accessories with my lolita. I have been wearing lolita for 3 years, but this is my first time doing a wardrobe post, because this is the first time I felt like I had enough clothes to merit posting.
This post contains some real fur.

India part 4? First Morning

Skipping ahead a bit. Disclaimers about accuracy still apply.

I woke up at 3 am local time and jet-lag kept me from falling back asleep. Having nothing else to do, I lay around my hotel room futilely for a while, before finally giving up on sleep around 5 am. My room was on the second floor, and the hallway was open, so it made a nice balcony. I stood there for an hour watching the sun rise over Delhi. As the sun came up, parakeets flew over city. Rhesus monkeys scrambled over rooftops. This was the first time I had seen monkeys outside of a zoo, so I watched in fascination. At about 6, I went for a walk. There were few people on the street that early, and none of them were white or female. I attracted a lot of stares. The simple act of going for a walk proved to be a bit of a challenge as there was no real sidewalk to walk on, just a partly broken curb. A pile of dung that might have come from an elephant lay in the street. As time wore on one or two women came out, but still no foreigners. And Lonely Planet had said that there would be tourist in this area. I finally turned back to the hotel in hopes of getting breakfast.

India part 2 Impetus to go

If you haven't already read the intro, go read it.

I love traveling. I had been to central Europe twice in high school, and it wasn't enough. India wasn't at the top of my list of places I wanted to travel, but it was far from the bottom. I was quite fond of the local Indian restaurant. Elephants are my favorite animal. When I was a kid, people would buy me toy elephants, a few of which were decorated in Indian style. The chance to see my beloved charismatic megafauna in their native habitat was enticing. My mother had a collection of beautiful silk saris that lived in the back of my closet. Of the NOLS backpacking courses, India sounded like the best option. I liked that the course had an emphasis on culture. I wanted to be more than just a tourist who had come for the trekking. American tourists who blunder around a country without any knowledge of or regard for the culture make me cringe.

I will edit this at some point. Next part linked when written.

India part 1 Introduction

In May and early June of 2009, I took a trip to northern India with a copy of Lonely Planet as my only companion. This is an account of that trip. This account is not completely accurate. This is partly because I'm writing this more than two years after the trip ended; I have forgotten things. Some of it is because I have a limited understanding of Indian culture and languages, and this is, of course, written based on my biased perceptions. Lastly, I am changing or omitting names to protect the identities of some of the people I met.

If you had to give up swimming, skiing, hiking, or biking for the rest of your life, which would you choose, and why?

Either biking or swimming really. I never learned to ride a bike, and I now have a medical problem which makes biking somewhat painful. I'm not overly fond of swimming. I don't like dressing that immodestly in public. I'm also allergic to chlorine.

Every so often I get phone calls from people who are out for my blood.
No really, they're after my blood.Collapse )

New Year's Resolutions

Ordinarily I don't do these, but since I'm starting college again it seemed like a good time for a fresh start. 2010 really sucked. I spent my time sitting around my parents house on my ass and failing to get a job. The job market sucks.
