10 Things that SUCK but indicate you’re Rockin’ your 20’s!

2

The moment you graduate high school, time begins to go a million miles an hour next thing you know… you’re 25…freak out! Then by the time you figure out your a next move, you’re 30!

You’re gonna look back at you 20’s and think it was amazing no matter what happened BUT having sucky times is a necessary process to reaching your wise and fruitful 30’s!

1. You’re flat bum-ass broke! – 

Screen Shot 2015-04-02 at 3.39.14 PMWhen you literally are eating cans of tuna for breakfast lunch and dinner just so you still can pay your bills to keep your phone in service. That $8 sandwich you skipped for lunch is an extra $8 towards your flight to Europe or your next drinking binge. Just remember there’s plenty of time to eat filet mignon and salmon later in life!

     2. You get your heart CRUSHED –      

Screen Shot 2015-04-02 at 3.31.25 PMTHIS SUCKS! But when you feel it… GO ALL IN & DO NOT HESITATE! Love is an unbelievable experience! Yes it is gonna SUCK when your beloved turns out to be a down-right douchebag but years down the track you’re going to realise it was a blessing in disguise as you always learn something about yourself through this process AND most importantly what you’re worth! Just remember that scumbags come into your life for a reason, be thankful it turned out the way it did!

3. You CRUSH someones heart- 

Screen Shot 2015-04-02 at 3.37.57 PMTHIS SUCKS EVEN MORE! When you realise that a relationship just is not working but the feeling isn’t mutual, knowing that you have a break someones heart is the most horrible feeling in the entire world, especially if they didn’t do anything wrong! But not having ‘dem feels’ for that someone who’s meant to be your someone special is a sign and breaking it off is a necessary evil! Sometimes you gotta be the bad guy!

4. You sleep on multiple couches –

Screen Shot 2015-04-02 at 3.38.27 PM Sometimes finding the perfect place to call your own takes time… or it’s a case of finding somewhere cheap enough that’ll approve your income to be a tenant! So in the mean time having those special people who let you crash on their couch or if you’re lucky enough to have THE BEST FRIENDS EVER (mitch and amanda 😉 ) who’ll insist you sleep in their bed!

5. You visit the Dr. for “just a check up”- 

Screen Shot 2015-04-02 at 3.33.08 PMGoing to your Dr. and asking for the daunting STI blood and urine test is embarrassing BUT SOOOOO NECESSARY! Anyone that says they haven’t done this is lying or needs to get their shit together and go because let’s face it, in your 20’s shit goes down, sometimes shit we can’t remember or really regret! But either way it’s a quick pee and a prick, sometimes a life-saving pee and a prick!

6.  You work 3 jobs –

Screen Shot 2015-04-02 at 4.10.04 PMUnless you’re blessed to have mummy and daddy pay for everything and you never have to pay rent, working 3 jobs like a crazy bitch is so annoying but the end result is SOOOO worth it! Like myself there are some things in life I ain’t missing out on and money is DEFINITELY not gonna be the reason why! So you work your ass off for 6 months to afford that new car or to go on that trip to Europe because just like a wise man once said “You can always get more money, you can’t get more time” – Mitchell MacGregor Bailey 😉

7. You have debt doom –

Screen Shot 2015-04-02 at 3.40.41 PMCan’t afford to go away to Carnivale in Brazil straight after you came back from USA?! THAT’S WHY GOD INVENTED CREDIT CARDS! Be smart about it, 0%p.a. on purchased exist for a reason! Live now and pay later! Be reckless, when you’re 20-somethings you can get away with it!

8.  You date the dick-head –

Screen Shot 2015-04-02 at 4.26.48 PMDating dick-heads is a good thing! In fact…date as many as you can! Not only does it teach you that most people are dick-heads but it will also teach you that the great ones are 1 in a million, so when you finally find a gem! HOLD ON TO THEM and treat them like the precious stone that they are! By that point, you finally would’ve earned it!

9. You fight with your loved ones –

Screen Shot 2015-04-02 at 4.31.32 PMWe all have had that fight with our parents or siblings about our life choices, where they all have their opinions about what you should do and always manage to make you feel as if your not going anywhere in life! So you bite back and get protective… next thing you know someone’s disowning someone then someone’s slamming doors! But always remember they only care and want the best for you so don’t say or do something that’ll cause major damage! This is your journey but try to involve them wherever you can, they’re your family!

10. You cry like a bitch –

Screen Shot 2015-04-02 at 3.39.58 PMTimes are gonna be tough, they’re gonna really suck, to the point where you think there’s no hope! SO CRY! CRY IT OUT AS LOUD AS YOU CAN! Getting that emotion out will clear your head and help with think about the next step! But the most important thing to remember is that now’s the time to take risks, now’s the time be a dumb bitch, now’s the time to make mistakes…so make every mistake known to man… because you can, you’re 20-something 🙂 !

With every sucky moment there’s 10 successful ones to follow! The most important thing to remember to do is always LIVE LIFE LUSCIOUSLY!

GAGA’S ARTPOP: “YOU COMPLETE ME”

“FREE MY MIND ARTPOP, YOU MAKE MY HEART STOP”

… with this one simplistically beautiful opening line to the single, ARTPOP, I could reluctantly say it sums up the experience of Lady Gaga’s new album will give you as it’s just not that easy.

How do you define the meaning of life in one sentence? You can’t, you simply can’t just use a handle full of words to summarise such an epic question! The same applies to the new album from this Goddess of innovation, vision, inspiration, re-invention and absolute brilliance…

It’s been exactly 2 and 1/2 years since the release of Gaga’s Born This Way bible of deliciously life changing melodies that infected her already devout cult-esque fan base. As a self-professed dedicated ‘Little Monster’, I have experienced many self defining moments with Lady Gaga’s music, art, fashion, film and social commentary so much so that I would not be who I am today without her artistic influence. So one might argue that what I’m about to declare is biased and one-sided but as Australian I like to think that I have the ability to step out of the box and see all multiple perspectives on issues, especially one as hot and controversial as Lady Gaga but I can safely say….THIS IS THE HOLY GRAIL! She has yet again dominated POP CULTURE with a myriad of tunes that stand loud and proud not only with their base, beat and bounce but due to Gaga’s ingenious ability to redefine your existence with her beautifully constructed lyrics.

Creating somewhat of a new sound with her 15 track album, each song screams wild creativity and  provocative sexuality. The subject matter focuses more on self discovery through fashion inspiration (“Donatella”), sexual experiences (“Sexxx Dreams”), passion (“Applause”) and staying true to who you are (“Aura”)! You’ll fine yourself going inside your psyche and applying every word to your life and feel her light a fire under your ass to start dancing, go forth with artistically fuelled eyes to improve yourself and the world.

ARTPOP promotes the creation of art by always finding chances to be self expressive. Poetically factoring in her Botticelli infused Venus driven look as the Goddess of Love along with her album cover classically designed by the one and only great POP CULTURE king Jeff Koons, has turned the entire album into an art gallery. She has innovatively simultaneously released the ARTPOP App to enhance the Gaga experience. Something that could’ve potentially been an epic fail due to lack of purpose! But simply by downloading ARTPOP and searching through the options and avenues it has to help you create your own art and share it with fellow Gaga worshipers on a live streaming page. PURE GENIUS GAGA! But hey would expect anything less from this entrepreneurial queen?

So please indulge your soul in this epic revolution, Lady Gaga’s new installment to the art exhibition that is her life!

So in the words of this fine woman ”Dance, Sex, ARTPOP

Ask the Universe a Question and it will ALWAYS give you an Answer!

OH MELBOURNE! You always have the right answers to everything…….

It’s the classic story …..I’m walking down a dirty, graffiti ridden (is there any better kind) back alley in a dodgy neighbourhood asking myself the age-old question of ‘what to do with my life?’ ‘what is my purpose?’ and Melbourne gives me the answer…….. so straight forward, NO BULLSHIT! IN PLAIN ENGLISH! RIGHT THERE, SMACK BANG IN MY FACE!  Well I can’t ignore this now can I!? Thanks Melbourne! You’re So Cool!

A Mouthful of a Manifesto

My name is Lucia Craven. I’m 22 years old and my life has just begun.

I was born in Houston, Texas, U.S.A, grew up in Vietnam and Indonesia but I TRULY AM a by-product of Melbourne, Australia.

As a result of experiencing many cultures, lifestyles and people I have discovered something amazing, precious and infectious…. A BIG, HUGE, GIGANTIC, MAMMOTH ZEST FOR LIFE!

I love everything there is about life. The friends/the family, the plights/the pleasures, the loves/the losers, the opportunities/the obstacles and everything in-between.

We are given one body, one mind and endless opportunities… AND I’LL BE DAMNED IF I DON’T TAKE WHAT I’VE BEEN GIVEN IN LIFE AND USE TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY TO LIVE THE SHIT OUT OF IT!

PEOPLE, FOOD, ART, MUSIC, FILM, TRAVEL and just pretty much anything I plan to spend the rest of my life experiencing everything I possibly can. It’s with this desire that I came up with my life’s mantra:  LIVE LUSCIOUSLY.

And what better city to live lusciously in than MELBOURNE. The love I have for this city is equally as intense, obsessive, creepy as the love I have for passions such as Lady Gaga, Mitch&Loz, perfume and liquorice bullets. This city is apart of me.

So watch me, follow me, lick me if you must but see me LIVE LUSCIOUSLY.
