Blood Moon Tonight!

These expensive, these is red moons. These is bloody moons. (dunno where I’m going with this lawl)

Keep an eye out for the Blood Moon tonight! The Lunar Eclipse will start at 8:00pm and umm… climax (not quite sure what the proper terminology is lawl soz) at 11:20pm and end at 2:30am. The Moon is supposed to be Red from 10:30pm until 12:15am. Hopefully, the weather in Kuwait will play nice so the Lunar Eclipse will be visible to the naked eye.

Burger King Explains Net Neutrality with Whoppers

The repeal of Net Neutrality is a hot topic in America, but it can be very difficult to understand. That’s why the BURGER KING® brand created WHOPPER® Neutrality, a social experiment that explains the effects of the repeal of Net Neutrality by putting it in terms anyone can understand: A WHOPPER® sandwich.

This effort aims to help people understand how the repeal of Net Neutrality will impact their lives.

The BURGER KING® brand believes the Internet should be like the WHOPPER® sandwich: the same for everyone.

Kudos, Burger King!

Net Neutrality is something I’m very, very passionate about. I’ve tried, but ultimately ended up failing, at explaining it, to the people in my life. Hopefully now they’ll be able to understand the concept (and all the accompanying ramifications) after watching this Burger King Ad.

Guys, this is serious.

Earthquake shook Kuwait

My phone has been blowing up with texts from people about the earthquake that shook Kuwait a couple of minutes ago. Apparently, it was a 7.2 on the Richter Scale (which is pretty serious). Thankfully, it seems that everyone is safe (if only a bit… shook, sorry couldn’t resist). We rarely get earthquakes over here, if ever, which is why it’s kind of a big deal for some. I called up my younger brother (literally minutes after people started blowing up my phone) to ask if he felt it and he’s all “Yeah, I felt it. I’m also trying to watch Season 2 of Stranger Things so let’s talk later, bye”. Well okay then. As for myself, I didn’t feel a thing (I happened to be running, at the time) and now I kinda’ feel left out.

My Story: Handbags

In all honesty, aside from Backpacks for school (it had to be either Jansport or Eastpack), I was never really all that much into bags, in general. The only bags that attracted me were Cross-Body Messenger Bags because I loved their casual vibe and found them effortlessly cool! I’m not quite sure when I got them, but somehow as a kid, managed to accumulate a handful of Small Cross-Body Bags; one being a Neon Yellow Canvas with Black Trim (the hardware was all black) possibly from Next and the other was a Black and White Canvas from the brand Kangol. They were both cute and casual but I just was never into carrying a bag around, regardless. Whenever I’d go out, I’d just stuff my pockets with my er, stuff (cash, some tissues, and a lipgloss usually Lancome Juicy Tube) and wear a hair-tie around my wrist (like a bracelet), or just hand all of my stuff to whomever I happened to be going out with at the time, so they’d end up carrying my stuff for me in their handbag, especially if the items were more than the ones that I just listed (wouldn’t all fit in my pockets). That’s how I ended up losing a lot – and I mean a lot – of my stuff, including my beloved MAC Vegas Volt Lipstick (mentioned here). I think I was around 17 when I started sporting a Denim Jeans Bag (almost similar to the one shown except mine was a shade or two lighter and had skinnier and much longer denim rope straps). I’m pretty sure I got it from a street vendor somewhere in Vienna because I distinctly remember bullying my older sister into buying it for me (since I’d spent all my pocket-money earlier that evening at the bookstore next to the hotel we were staying at) while there on a family summer vacation trip. I liked the Denim Jean Bag because it was simple yet unique (I’d never laid eyes on a denim bag prior) and a bit quirky. I’d pair it with a flow-y black top, a denim pencil skirt and denim platform slides (that all happened to match, shade-wise) which off-set my newly blonde hair! I really loved that thing and wore it up until one of the straps came undone.

Partial Lunar Eclipse Tonight

There’s going to be a partial lunar eclipse tonight! I know it’s short notice (sorry!) but I literally just found out about it.

A partial lunar eclipse on August 7, 2017 begins at 5:22 p.m. Greenwich Mean Time and is expected until 7:18 p.m. Part of the moon will orbit through Earth’s shadow at a speed of 2,300 miles per hour.

So in Kuwait that would be +3 local time meaning it’ll start at 8:22pm and last until 10:18pm.

According to timeanddate.com, the lunar event will be visible to most of the world, except all of North America, much of South America and some areas in east and Northern Russia.

It’ll be visible from Kuwait (we’ll get to see something cool… for a change, as opposed to always missing out lawl). Unlike a Solar Eclipse you can view a Lunar Eclipse with the naked eye (no safety precautions needed because you will not go blind or whatever). Again, it’s not a full Lunar Eclipse. It’s only a partial Lunar Eclipse. So keep that in mind. Happy Spectating!
