Basic Bitches

June 28, 2016

Officially, this is the first and last post I will write about Basic Bitches. I will never waste my time getting to know one because I now understand the signs.

What is a basic bitch?

This is the best definition:

Someone who is unflinchingly upholding of the status quo and stereotypes of their gender without even realizing it. She engages in typical, unoriginal behaviors, modes of dress, speech, and likes. She is tragically/laughably unaware of her utter lack of specialness and intrigue. She believers herself to be unique, fly, amazing, and a complete catch, when really she is boring, painfully normal, and par. She believes her experiences to be crazy, wild, and different or somehow more special than everything that everybody else is doing, when really, almost everyone is doing or has done the exact same thing. She is typical and a dime a dozen.

or

a bum-ass woman who think she the shit but really ain’t

So… what happened?

I was freaked out by one. I never learn! She gave a fake illusion that she was a Bad Bitch on the first date. We made it to 3 date then the basicness came out.

1st date was ok, nothing special tho.

2nd date was great, but I now blame the cool environment and the alcohol.

3rd date was awful. So awful my body could sence the bad vibe and >my nose bled<

She could be summed up like this:

Depressive, basic, annoying, cautious, weary, slow, boring, tamed…

NO FLARE.

Finally we argued about… I can’t even remember what! But it was a good thing because it saved time. Basic Bitches suit basic people and will have basic children

My friends say:

S – you’ll get bored soon

R – you need to kiss a hot bitch ASAP

F – next

Warning: If you ever meet a Bad Bitch TEST HER ASAP. Say random mad shit to see if she reacts. Dont waste your time on Basic Bitches. They will not lift you up. AT ALL! Plentyyyyyyyyy more options out there.

Yes, but no, I’m not the CEO of successful company. I’m a beach bum

June 19, 2016

If there is one question I hate, it is this:

What do you do?

Should it really matter what I do? I don’t care about what you do… I never ask.
The question indicates that I need validation. If what I do is satisfactory to the person asking, then I get given the green light. If not.. well forever be judged.

Have you realised that most answers are variations of the same damn thing? Besides… who cares if you’re a student, accountant or CEO of whatever. Yay

This type of conversation starter is the most simplest open-ended question. The receiver has an auto response and… the conversation continues. Risk free and comfortable. That’s probably why 99% of the population ask it.

My typical first conversation goes like this:

So… What do you do?

– I cycle / play guitar / travel / chill on the beach / chill anywhere / sail / snorkle / hike.. And you?

As I start to list what I do my questioner starts to look slightly displeased with my answer. Sadly I know that you’re trying to ask me one of the following questions:

How much do you earn? Where do you work? What financial position are you in?
Are you richer than me? Is my status higher? ARE YOU WORTH MY TIME?

I do this all the time. And continue without revealing my title. Eventually the questioner begins to tell me about their passions and hobbies.

It erks me when people ask me this. And everyone does. I understand why, its autoconvo but I’m not like everyone else. I love flare.

Tell me about your passion, what excites you and what you love. I don’t care about title, I don’t care where you studied or lived
I care about getting to know you


 

Think of this shift as changing a noun into a verb. Instead of giving people a title (i.e., a box to put you in), let them know what you enjoy doing—what you’re passionate about—and then discover what they enjoy. The conversation will morph into something far more interesting, and you’ll learn a lot more about each other than your silly job titles. – Joshua Fields Millburn & Ryan Nicodemus

My Trip To Copenhagen

June 13, 2016

Everything I thought Copenhagen to be was a myth.

The first thing I thought when the plane was landing was.. OMG WE’RE LANDING ON WATER.

You can’t see the land at all so it gives the wrong impression…

I took the 20minute train ride to the city center and strolled around. I walked into Tivoli is a beautiful garden and amusement park which is in the heart of the city. The sun was shining and I only had my Eastpack backpack so I was able to move around with ease. I took a 20minute chill out nap on the grass. Very nice indeed.

Hearing my stomach rumble I got up and ventured into the city center a bit more and passed all the shops on the promenade. Finally I found a nice bar/cafe/vintage store/barbers called Salotto 42 which served me a beautiful light lunch. The attention to detail in the presentation was second to none.

At this point I realised that I’d forgotten to book my accommodation. I quickly loaded up Airbnb and thankfully got a swift response to a 1 bedroom apartment in the area of Fredericksburg which was a 40minute walk from the city center.

The apartment was everything I wish I had in London (sad but true).

Thursday night. Meet Emil.

Emil and I connected online through a travellers forum. I posted that I’d be visiting Copenhagen and he offered to show me the underground spots. Plus we had interests in common such a Reggae Music, Festivals and Natural Living.
I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. What can I say… Emil is one of the most beautiful spirits I’ve ever met. A gorgeous blonde beast of a man with a genuine soul. I fell in love immediately.

We met up at the apartment and went to Christiana Town for a Funk Fusion concert (which was AWESOME). Now this.. I didn’t expect from Copenhagen.

Christiania Town AKA Freetown Christiania needs a post of its own. It is a self-governing town of Copenhagen and it’s a place unlike any other in the world. Its 84 acres sit on an abandoned military base, and it was founded in 1971 by squatters and artists as a “social experiment.” It’s full of vibrant scenery with a gritty edge. The town was said to be “beyond the reach of Danish law” by its founders, and has its own currency, Løn. (It’s often referred to as Freetown Christiania.) In Christiania, cannabis shops operate 24 hours a day and sell 30–40 types of strains. Pretty cool. The town is full of art galleries, restaurants, café, and historic buildings.

Daytime Friday.

I did the city by bike. 50% of people in the city ride bikes over driving so the cycle culture is amazing.
Cheekily of me I followed the hop on / hop off bus around on bike so I could visit all the main sights. Then I did my own route, exploring the nooks and crannies of the city. This city is chic, vintage, organised, neat and vibrant.

Friday Night.. Meet Lotus.

We met at the Meatpacking district of Copenhagen. It is one of the hottest nightlife destinations in Copenhagen. Many warehouses have been converted into bars and clubs which on the offset looks amazing. Open warehouses with music blazing and people hanging out inside and outside. Though the music is a bit grungy for me.

Lotus has blue hair, blue eyes and is a human rights activist. She could also dance

I met Lotus outside a bar called Cafe Mandela. We wandered around the meatpacking district until she suggested to show me the gay/lesbian scene of Copenhagen.
We got to know each other on the walk there and in the first bar we went to. It was nice. She was nice. Though I didn’t realise what ‘we’ were on. Perhaps a date.. She then took me to a club called G-A-Y. I’ve been to G-A-Y in London. It’s a trashy, pop, messy gay/lesbian club. Just what I was in the mood for. Long story short we ended up at my place around 6am.

Yes.. I hooked up

Lotus kinda looked like this..

Saturday Evening..

You might be wondering what happened to Saturday day time… I woke up around 6pm on Saturday hung over having slept the whole day. I was always pleased to see a message from Emil. I invited him round for dinner then we went out to the Candy Factory in North West Copenhagen (the cultural area).

The Candy Factory is situated in an old warehouse. The location itself is surrounded by amazing graffiti and art. Also.. anything goes. ie, smoking inside, graffiti walls while listening to the live music, drugs, free love etc. It was awesome, we headed back to the apartment around 4am in time for my flight back to London at 7am.
