An Announcement

I think I’ve decided that it’s time to move some of the more personal “musings” of my life over to my tumblr … efferuescent.tumblr.com because it’s a lot more suited for thoughts and random scribbles of memory directed for my use.

I will still be keeping this blog up because I think I’ve got a lot more followers than I used to have who expect things that I post that are more formal – fashion reviews, my comments on interesting articles, inspiring quotes, etc., etc.

I’m pretty excited for this next move, because it’ll keep both my sites pretty organized and give me some motivation for some new posts (hopefully!)



I made a tumblr wayyyy before I made a wordpress.


It’s titled Memories because every picture is a memory, a sharp reminder of some aspect of my life – something small or meaningless – that comes together to capture my whole life. So in the caption, I have written one trigger word or so that no one will get but me. And I think that makes it special.

Give it a look or a click if you want to ^_^

John Green

I’m kind of obsessed with John Green

and his tumblr

John Green’s Tumblr

He’s absolutely hilarious and you just know he’s an amazing writer just because of the oh so casual snarky, sarcastic, hilarious, funny, heartwarming tone that he manages to slide into his various posts.

He posts about everything. And everything is interesting.

Such as his work in Ethiopia.

His adamant opposition towards sexual assault and the recent Sam Pepper incident.



Weekly Faves 2


This is a website in which you virtually simulate being poor. Reading this… it kind of seems very offending, but the website, I think, gives you a nice over view of what those who are in poverty may be going through and a greater insight into what could have led to their troubles. You go into the website, you choose a low paying job – a waiter, a small administrator, etc. and then you have to go through a month without ending up with a balance of zero. However, you are faced with constant troubles and constant financial difficulties that come as a result of life – mother’s medication, death of dog, counselor meetings, kids, etc. After playing the game – which is actually really addicting, you understand the actions that those in poverty, who are desperate, have to make. At the end, it also asks you to donate $10 to Urban Ministries of Durham. I think it’s a good cause, so I’m definitely spreading the word about it ^_^

2. Mexican Rice Bowls!

I think it’s pretty obvious that everyone is in love with Chipotle. But not only is the food so delicious and so good, it’s also so healthy and so easy to make right in your own house! I love my Mexican rice bowls with avocados, chicken, lettuce, beans, etc. It’s your choice whatever you put into it and guh, so good 🙂


Hehe. I’m kind of obsessed with her absolutely adorable tumblr. She has all these cute characters in these comics responding to statements, topped with perfect drawings and clever puns. Check it out. Sooooo cute.

4. Listen to Our Hearts

I have always loved this song. It makes me so happy and so worship hyped. Not to mention it features one of my favorite artists, Tim Be Told.

Tim Be Told

Tim Be Told

I love their music and their devotion to God. Tim’s singing is phenomenal. They also have a blog Soul Endeavor that you can check out!

I’m not putting them as another Youtube channel because I have so much respect for the band that extends outside of Youtube.

Really, they are such an amazing band that really needs to get more recognition!
