Hello to you all!

Our school will have a 80's styled party this Thursday so I thought that I could write a little about my love towards the crazy decade. I haven't been into this 80's stuff for long, maybe one or two years inactively so don't expect me to be some awesome 80's master who knows everything...

I don't know what's so great about the 80's, something just draws my interest. I like to find out what kind of clothes teenagers used to wear that time, I like to watch 80's movies, I like to know about... well, everything related to the 80's. I think it began with my other hobby, VHS collecting. (I could write about it as well, ohoho~)

And yeah, I mainly focus on the USA's decade but I try to find out about other countries as well :---D

This site has been a real golden treasure chest and Holy Bible for me: Like Totally 80s
It has so much info and personal experiences that you just have to love it!

Also this has helped me a lot with my movie-watching: The 80s Movies Rewind
...but I'm sure even that page lacks movies so please recommend good 80's movies for me! Any movies!

This is how I'll look on Thursday. I might put a little more makeup (if I find my eyeliner...!) and tease my hair more.

Quality sucks. Click the photos to enlarge!

I don't have money to buy new clothes for just one event so I'll just go with what I already have on my closet. I'll wear my fake Converses as well. (since my real ones are dirty D: ) People tend to dress in neon colors and aerobic clothes and other ugly stuff and that bugs me a little since 80's fashion is much more than that! You could be punk! Or preppy! I'm not saying neon colors are a bad choice, it's just a little uncreative. An easy choice.

By the way I was shocked because I heard Kanye West and Jay-Z's Otis today at H&M. First I was like "Cool! They're playing "Try A Little Tenderness!"" and then the rap part came and I was like... Like... I gotta tell you, if I were on a little more sensitive mood I would've cried! The rap artist have rap(p)ed too many songs... Why am I so emotional about this? Because the lovely Duckie sang that song to Andie in the movie Pretty in Pink and it's one of my favourite movie scenes ever. So thanks a lot West & Jay-Z. u___u

Ps. I found a zebra under our kitchen table today.

...I told my roommate not to bring him to our place but she brought it anyway. I don't think animal skin looks good on our floor. Or anyone's floor. Or anyone's coat. u___u

"Hi! ♥ I'm Seppo. Please treat me as your own daughter. ♥"

...So now I have to eat with my roommate AND a dead zebra. Yay.

What a feeling, bein's believin'
I can't have it all, now I'm dancin' for my life
Take your passion, and make it happen
Pictures come alive, you can dance right through your life
