This week’s lolpip is none other than yours truly:


Still brought to you by Lai.

Dreamy Idealists are very cautious and therefore often appear shy and reserved to others. They share their rich emotional life and their passionate convictions with very few people. But one would be very much mistaken to judge them to be cool and reserved. They have a pronounced inner system of values and clear, honourable principles for which they are willing to sacrifice a great deal. Joan of Arc or Sir Galahad would have been good examples of this personality type. Dreamy Idealists are always at great pains to improve the world. They can be very considerate towards others and do a lot to support them and stand up for them. They are interested in their fellow beings, attentive and generous towards them. Once their enthusiasm for an issue or person is aroused, they can become tireless fighters.

For Dreamy Idealists, practical things are not really so important. They only busy themselves with mundane everyday demands when absolutely necessary. They tend to live according to the motto “the genius controls the chaos” – which is normally the case so that they often have a very successful academic career. They are less interested in details; they prefer to look at something as a whole. This means that they still have a good overview even when things start to become hectic. However, as a result, it can occasionally happen that Dreamy Idealists overlook something important. As they are very peace-loving, they tend not to openly show their dissatisfaction or annoyance but to bottle it up. Assertiveness is not one of their strong points; they hate conflicts and competition. Dreamy Idealists prefer to motivate others with their amicable and enthusiastic nature. Whoever has them as superior will never have to complain about not being given enough praise.

As at work, Dreamy Idealists are helpful and loyal friends and partners, persons of integrity. Obligations are absolutely sacred to them. The feelings of others are important to them and they love making other people happy. They are satisfied with just a small circle of friends; their need for social contact is not very marked as they also need a lot of time to themselves. Superfluous small talk is not their thing. If one wishes to be friends with them or have a relationship with them, one would have to share their world of thought and be willing to participate in profound discussions. If you manage that you will be rewarded with an exceptionally intensive, rich partnership. Due to their high demands on themselves and others, this personality type tends however to sometimes overload the relationship with romantic and idealistic ideas to such an extent that the partner feels overtaxed or inferior. Dreamy Idealists do not fall in love head over heels but when they do fall in love they want this to be a great, eternal love.

For my first Awesome Artists feature, I’ve decided to do it on Emmy Cicierega.

Emmy and the Cat Barettes

I actually discovered this wonderful young artist through Harry Potter. If you have been living under a rock, then you might not have heard of Potter Puppet Pals yet. If you are fortunate enough to know about this wonderful website, then you know how funny those short clips are. Neil and his sister Emmy started off with 2 Flash animated videos but have now made more, complete with actual puppets and a stage.

Since my discovery of PPP, I have been watching and admiring Emmy’s works on deviantArt. Her style is very light and carefree, with lots of colors and crazy ideas. She’s also been known to skip outlining her drawings. And let’s not forget that wonderful sense of humor of hers. She makes drawing and animating look effortless, which, I can honestly say, is not the case, having studied Multimedia Arts (and failing epicly).

Click on for more of her awesome-ness.

Have just recently joined Plurk and I have to say that I’m enjoying it a lot. I discovered it through my friends (Lai, Leia and Yoe) and I have now recruited 3 other friends to join. Working on getting more friends to join. LOL

As of now, I have no idea how to post the widget, but click here to view my profile.

Add me when you join!:D

You are the hardest to face
The most difficult word to say
My lips wrap around your form
And my gates immediately fall
I am no soldier against you
Every time, I just fall victim
Your power is unmatched
My world has not a shield
I question your existence
Each time I have no answer
And here you stand, stronger than me
Taking away all I have achieved
You reduce me to a mere mockery
A joke that you beat into the ground
I haven’t done a thing to resist, what can I?
For aren’t I just a jester in your court?

Started writing this inside the car on the way home from work.

I never really realized how much more it hurts to break off a friendship than a romantic relationship.

Mixthreads is having a poll to decide whether or not they should produce Twilight-inspired shirts.


We all know that there can never be enough Twilight goodies. So go vote! There are a lot of funny and sweet quotes from the series so I think even non-readers would appreciate the shirts.


Is in her mid-20s. Is a girl. Loves to write. Loves taking pictures. Vents a lot. Finds her days too boring. Finds herself too sheltered. Wants to meet a faerie, for real. Swears a lot. Knows that's bad. Just might have too dirty a mind.
