What I’m meant to be doing:
Any one of the 5 assignments due in next week, but specifically, some coding for the group project I’m doing, which I need to email to the rest of the group this evening.
What I’m actually doing:
Having a break, knitting a ludicrous amount of ribbed stitch (the kind of stretchy knitting you get on the ends of sleeves) in a fluffy red wool, and watching Pixiwoo’s channel on Youtube.
This may come as something of a surprise, as Pixiwoo’s channel is dedicated to make-up tutorials. And make-up makes my face melt.
However, there are several good reasons to like her:
- she does drag make-up tutorials, which is how I originally found her
- she’s also done at least one tutorial using a black model, and generally seems to make a point of saying which of the colours she uses would work on which skin tones
- she gets into arguments with people on planes who are mean to children (she gets grumpy about it in this video)
- she has a nice voice
(If I’m honest, I listen to her videos while I knit because of number 4. But I’m recommending her as a nice person because of numbers 1 – 3. Her make-up advice doesn’t sound bad either!)
