FORA-1-1: ASMR

AsmrFun

ASMR (or Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) is kind of a strange phenomenon. For those who experience it, it’s difficult to explain and for those who don’t it’s almost impossible to understand. We recently found ourselves lost in a strange corner of the internet (as most people often do) binge watching ASMR trigger videos that had accumulated over 15 million views (!!!), and knew we had to dig into the science behind this weird yet affective A.F. relaxation method.

Click below the cut to expand your knowledge- and maybe if you’re lucky you’ll feel some ~tingles~.

Five Female Gamers To Binge Watch On YouTube

Gamrgirlheader2

Contrary to popular belief, video games are not just for boys (but you knew that). Maybe it’s because we’re used to battling the patriarchy in real life, but girls can in fact hold their own in the video game world by kicking butt and keeping up with the boys (or in some cases leaving them in the dust).

In recent years, girls have come forward with some seriously upsetting stories of experiencing sexism and harassment within the gaming community, but these badass gals aren’t ones to back down. Here are five fearless female gamers who are literally killing the game.

iForgot: Habits Made Obsolete by the Smart Phone

iforgot

Video may have killed the radio star, but the iPhone killed everything else. Within your cell phone is everything—your camera, your watch, your music, your maps, your LIFE.  No one phone should have all that power. While we love (and would probably die without) our endlessly useful smart phones, there are some things we’ve been feeling nostalgic for.

Emoji Investigation

EMOJI-INVESTIGATION

Recently our minds were blown and our worlds rocked with some very confusing news: what we all thought was a *Praying Hands* emoji may in fact be a *High Five* emoji. Kablam! WHAT?! Right?? I’m just as shocked as you are. I suppose it doesn’t matter how the man defines our emojis, what is important is how our use of emojis are interpreted by those on the receiving end of our emoticon occupied messages. Evidently we don’t all interpret emojis the same way, somewhere along the way, things must be getting lost in translation. Here I will investigate different emoji meanings as well as emojis that I just really don’t understand.  read more…

Build-A-Boyfriend.Com

buildabae1
I’m 100% certain that I am the first to come up with this website, however I need the fund$ to bring it to life. I’m not saying that Robotic Boyfriends are the future (but I’m not saying that they aren’t the future, either). This site is perfect for picky people like myself. Imagine if we could have our perfect boyfriend shipped to our doorstep, expedited?

Maybe, in the words of the Jonas Brothers, *we’re the kids of the future, woah, woah.* read more…

It's Not You, It's The Way You Text

ParisTexting

The 21st century has its perks, but it also has its downfalls. I have this love/hate relationship with texting. A part of me loves the notion of getting to know somebody by text. A part of me also loves the validation of making someone laugh just be using your thumbs. But lol wait that sounds weird *flips ponytail and pushes glasses back up*

…ANYWAY… read more…

Do you remember your first cell phone? Because I do. And it was a Mitsubishi G310.
