URBAN DECAY

"Our intellect has achieved the most
 tremendous things, but in the meantime
 our spiritual dwelling has fallen into disrepair."
 - Carl Jung


Yeah, if you know your cosmetics, this is a play on word on that one very amazing cosmetic brand. Google it if you're confused. That aside, let's hit straight into more interesting things that more people will be keen in reading... 'Urban Decay' - the process whereby a previously functioning city, or part of a city, falls into disrepair and decrepitude due to neglect or age. And yes, this is another relationship article, they always seem to get the most attention. I guess we're all just dying to find out the magic to achieving eternal belonging. Replace the word 'city' with the word 'relationship' and you have this fortnight's topic: a previously functioning relationship falls into disrepair and decrepitude due to neglect...

THE OCEAN

You can be my safety zone, 
Somewhere I can go when I feel alone
That's all I need, all I want, Is to stay a little longer now
Arms around me like a border, 
Like an endless stream
You take me in, To a place that I've never been
Now I'm Giving in to your touch
I will never get enough
Diving deep into the ocean
- Mike Perry (The Ocean)


Three girls on the road, three wild hearts, young and free. Wind in our hair, crystallised salt on our bronzed skin. Age is but a number, but our body will never be younger than we are in this moment. "The oceans is everything I want to be. Beautiful, mysterious, wild and free."

HALO

halo effect 
/ˈheɪləʊɪˈfɛkt/
The tendency for an impression created in one area to
 influence opinion in another area.


I complained during the early-mid year of 2016 that this was one of the worst years I've ever gone through... only because I had such great expectations for it. It started so well, filled with so much potential, only to fall apart. My mind was so focused with the failures that I almost completely overlooked my accomplishments and my blessings. The negative halo effect, negativity in one small area and it cast a negative shade over everything else.

KNOCKOUT

"...who you are is defined by what 
you're willing to struggle for.
- Mark Manson



I don't see gender, and my older brother clearly doesn't either. At home, he will put me in an arm triangle or rear naked, all the moves he has learned from Brazilian Jujitsu. Me? Despite my inability to truly survive in situations like these that happen on a regular, I will still put up a mean fight. I would whack his nose (making him sneeze, which is hilarious) or just plain slap him across the face (only to work him up a bit more so he cranks my arm back a little harder). However, having taken up Muay Thai, I am now capable of giving him a few mean knees into the ribs and falsely elbow him on the head. All the meanwhile with Mumma Chen casually walking past, not so impressed that her daughter is acting a lot less like a daughter in her eyes.
